Coconut chicken curry

So I am all about easy these days. Meal prep happens on the weekend, which just makes life soooo much easier. I hate to miss a beat when I am with my son Alexander so being organised is key to us having quality time together but also proper family meals. I love the idea of…

Chicken with butternut squash and pearl barley salad

I make no secret of the fact that I suffer from a huge amount of anxiety. It has been this way for the last three years since losing our daughter Elena. I am so in fear of getting things wrong that the anxiety just prevents me from moving forward and the best example of this…

The everything leek and potato soup

It is funny, this week marks my 1st anniversary of cooking for my son. I spent the first few months coming up with nutritious and tasty purees, then it became thicker foods that resembled actual food, then came the finger foods and things that had hidden vegetables it in. All was going really well, until…

Greek lemon and chicken soup

Finally with a little time on my hands, I am back to my kitchen in a productive and busy manner. With little time before the baby arrives, I had envisioned stocking the freezer to the brim with snacks and meals for when our hands are full. To do this though, I have to empty the…

Pesto chicken sandwich

I recently had a lovely chicken sandwich. Strips of chicken covered in pesto on fluffy white bread. It was good, but it was a little heavy. So I came home and devised a new sandwich. Same theory, chicken strips and pesto but a little lighter. My partner D came home and took a bite and…

Thai roasted chicken

My poor little blog has been all alone for a little while now, neglected and forgotten. But in my defence, our internet hasn’t been working and for the last two weeks, every time I attempt to write a post, the internet crashes and my work gets lost before I have time to save… arrrgggh! So…

The aromatic chicken dish

Yes yes, it’s really me! I am back in action after a very hectic few weeks. We have been away travelling and then have had numerous guests to stay, so I am very pleased to be back in action and starting to resume normal life again. When I say normal, obviously I mean our usual…

Birthdays, Paris and Chicken…

Well now, it has become apparent that I have been neglecting my blog lately. In fairness this time I have an excuse, I swear! I feel almost incomplete when I don’t tap away at my computer or write notes in my food journal after making a new or favourite dish. But I have of late,…

Comforting chicken noodle soup

It has been a long two weeks since I wrote a post and boy have I missed it. I’ve been grumpy and tired and wondering what was wrong. Now I realise it is because I have not blogged or cooked properly in ages. Now sitting here, writing this,  I feel a little more like me…

Tomatoes galore!

Ok so it has been a super busy week for me with work and seeing friends, I have done a fair few late shifts in work and have been shuffling around town buying bits and bobs and organising a million things. I was working today and then saw my mother very briefly towards the end…
