Easy Oven Meatballs

These little meatballs are virtually carb free but full of flavour. Experiment with different flavours by adding a combination of different herbs and spices or even cheese. I found these meatballs cooked better after being chilled for half an hour in the fridge. You can still bake them straight away [...]

Ham and Egg Spinach Salad

After work today I spent and hour and a half mowing our new sod for the first time. It was looking like a little bit of a jungle. Birds were getting lost in the luscious vegetation and our poor Boston Terrior Nico has to bound like Bambi to get from [...]

Pad Thai Salad

This spectacular summer salad is very high in protein and adds beautiful colour to your summer table. To julienne veggies I would suggest purchasing a julienne peeler. They usually come with 3 different blades and are a handy little gadget to have around the kitchen.

Asparagus-Chicken Roulades

This is a fancy little dish but is quiet easy to prepare. I paired it with sauted rutabaga and fresh snap peas and grilled the remaining asparagus. The family enjoyed theirs with the flattened chicken breast and I substituted my meal with Tilapia. If you prefer, you can also use [...]

Coconuts grow in abundance in Kerala, and consequently, coconut kernel, (sliced or grated) coconut cream and coconut milk are widely used in dishes for thickening and flavouring.

Parmesan Tilapia

We eat fish at least once a week in our house. Although the rest of the family eat meat of all kinds I only eat fish so it is nice to be able to make one dish and not have to make any substitutions. Tilapia is a very mild white [...]

Crispy Fish Tacos

A few summers ago we took the family to New York City. It is such a vibrant and exciting city and I highly recommend that if you have the chance you need to go. We ended up staying in a great little studio apartment in the centre of Brooklyn which [...]

Chicken and Avocado Salad

I love the versatility of a great salad especially when there a re a few different dietary needs under one roof. You can add and subtract ingredients at will and the salad still tastes awesome. The one thing I really loved about this dish was the dressing. It was slightly [...]
