Smoked Salmon Spaghetti

Hello everyone! I’m back after a month away from blogging.

Even though I haven’t been blogging for long, I just needed a bit of time off to look after myself before I came back with more recipes for all of you. As many of my readers with POTS would understand, it’s important we don’t take on too much and push our body too hard and overload. Continue reading

Mushrooms stuffed with Feta, Bacon and Spinach

When I was younger I used to make mushrooms with melted cheese on the stove with my dad. I haven’t made it in years but I recently came across this much healthier recipe which brought back those fond memories.

This recipe is so full of flavour and has a good amount of salt in it. The mushrooms are bursting with flavour and are incredibly juicy and are bite sized – well depending on the size of the mushrooms you use. I prefer the big mushrooms, but that only means that you eat it in two bites instead of one.

Marshmallows dipped in salted caramel and chocolate

I wasn’t going to write about this recipe for a while but this week I have felt quite fatigued and been sick with a cold so I decided to pull it forward a few weeks. I hope you all enjoy it!

I made these marshmallows as part of an Easter gift to my friends and family and they are AMAZING. I think the best way to describe the flavour would be like a rocky road or marshmallow Easter bunny.

I cannot recommend this recipe more highly. Besides the fact that they end up looking insanely awesome they just taste epic. Yes I am using epic as a measure of flavour as there really isn’t much more of a way to explain just how good they taste. The marshmallow is dipped in salted caramel, then it’s dipped in chocolate which hardens. Then you can eat it in one bite or in two. It just … it’s just the perfect treat.

Almond Cookies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor Easter this year, I decided to try something different for my family instead of the usual Easter eggs. I figured that since I’m quite into cooking desserts and ‘treats’ at the moment, what better excuse than Easter to cook some more and give them away? Well, there was a slight ‘hitch’ in that plan … you see I really REALLY like the taste of these almond cookies … like REALLY like them … to the point where only half of what I made I was willing to give away … (I swear I am a good person).

To say I was impressed with how these turned out is a major understatement. These were nice and crispy on the outside and gooey and soft inside. They tasted and felt store bought –  a real crowd favourite! Continue reading

Salted Caramel Popcorn with/out Peanuts

 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   
When I was younger, we used to have caramel popcorn as a treat and for that reason, it has always held a special place in my heart. So when I came across a recipe for salted caramel popcorn with peanuts (so double the amount of salt!) I couldn’t resist. For those of you who haven’t tried it you can’t really taste the salt in it, it really tastes like caramel popcorn with peanuts on top (or peanut butter popcorn) – really nice and different from the norm.

Meatballs and Vegetable Soup (One Pot Meal)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am always on the lookout for simple, easy to make, tasty soups. There is something about soups that I just love. They are always so enjoyable to eat – they have such a nice texture, whether completely smooth and creamy, or nice and chunky.

I came across a recipe for meatballs in vegetable soup. This recipe is so healthy (not just by my normal standards but by those who actually have healthy eating standards), and tastes soo good – it has already made it into the dinner rotation. Continue reading
