Gooey salted caramel ice cream (392 calories per serve)

I remember many years ago when I tried my first salted caramel dessert. It absolutely blew my mind. I had no idea that a combination of salt and sweet could taste so good. Since then salted caramel has been one of my absolute favourite flavours so of course, I had to make it from scratch … Continue reading Gooey salted caramel ice cream (392 calories per serve)

Angie’s Strawberry Ice Cream (245 calories per serve)

I bought an ice cream maker recently - a Cuisinart with compressor (because who has that much space in the freezer for a bowl??). Since then, I have been experimenting with at least one flavour a week. I quickly realised that I liked the egg-free, no-cook varieties better because I can make an ice cream, … Continue reading Angie’s Strawberry Ice Cream (245 calories per serve)

Basic beef gyudon (430 calories per serve)

This is a very comforting recipe that I prepared for my brother. Beef gyudon is a pretty popular, and easy, Japanese recipe that is traditionally served with a raw egg. I get queasy with raw egg white so when I have it, I actually separate the egg yolk from the egg white and only eat … Continue reading Basic beef gyudon (430 calories per serve)

Summer Sizzler Spice Seasoning

When James and I went to London in 2018, we were amazed at how beautiful and 'old' the city was. It was summer time, the Wimbledons were being played and England had made it to the quarter finals of the World Cup. The atmosphere was so festive and electric. There were plenty of rooftop bars … Continue reading Summer Sizzler Spice Seasoning

She likes carrot … Continue reading Nutty orange carrot cake (370 calories per serve)

Caramelised onion chicken (384 calories per serve)

My mom used to cook this a lot when I was young and I think it's partly because it's so simple and easy to make. There weren't too many ingredients and it tasted so good all the time. It was really hard to mess up. This dish really tastes best if you fry the onions … Continue reading Caramelised onion chicken (384 calories per serve)

Blissful Butter Chicken (623 calories per serve)

Indian curries are absolutely fantastic - I use the word blissful because that's how I feel when I eat them. There are so many different curries that it's hard to whittle down to just one but most recently, I have become a big fan of the humble butter chicken. I used to not want to … Continue reading Blissful Butter Chicken (623 calories per serve)

Slow-braised pork belly (893 calories per serve)

This is a beautiful dish that can fill the whole room with delicious aromas. When paired with warm, fluffy rice and freshly cooked greens, it feels like a warm hug on a cold winter's night. However, it does come with a massive amount of calories so it's not a dish I can have too often. … Continue reading Slow-braised pork belly (893 calories per serve)
