Tomato Salsa

tomato-salsa1

If you’re the sort of person that can sit down and polish off a whole jar of salsa whilst chatting to a beloved partner or friend, I’ve got you covered, this salsa is amazing!

The tomatoes, red pepper and garlic are roasted and then blended with chilli and lime to make the most wonderfully flavoursome salsa. It’s incredibly simple to make and roasting the vegetables adds such a wonderful element to the flavour.

I love serving this with either plain whole wheat pita chips or home-made flat bread; both recipes are coming soon!

It’s a great option for a healthy snack and perfect to serve to guests. Once you try this, you’ll never buy store bought salsa again!

Turmeric Milk (Golden Milk)

This beautiful little mug of golden milk is the latest thing I've added to my health regime.  It's my favourite thing to drink in the early morning or late at night. Not only is it incredibly delicious and comforting but it's packed full of  antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Turmeric is used commonly in Ayurveda, which is [...]

You haven't heard much from me lately as I've just got back from a two week trip to Thailand! I had such a wonderful time and while I was there I went to Thai cooking school. I can't wait to share some of the recipes with you! Yep, I now know how to make a [...]

Last week I had my gorgeous friend Zara over for dinner. While Mark is away I'm cooking for one, so I was very excited to have a beautiful friend to cook for. When food comes from the heart, it’s much more enjoyable when shared with someone special. You might remember a few weeks back I [...]

Monday was a holiday in the UK and I had such a beautiful day baking cookies and listening to the rain. It poured with rain the whole day but I didn't mind because it gave me an excuse to spend the day cooking. Cooking and the sound of heavy rain falling makes for a very [...]

There are loads of quotes out there about trying things that scare you but this one is probably my favourite. ‘If it excites you and scares the crap out of you at the same time, it probably means you should do it’. This past weekend I did an acro yoga class with my gorgeous friend [...]

We watched Gorillas in the Mist on the weekend in anticipation and after all these years, it’s still [...]

Choc Banana Bites

Last week, during an evening filled with music and tomfoolery, I decided it might be a good idea to practice handstands against the wall at 10pm at night! For reference, perhaps not a good idea (unless you’re intending an all nighter!). It was certainly proof they give you loads of energy, as I found when [...]
