Baked Salmon with Basil & Lemon Potato Salad

Okay, this is going to be fast and easy – just like riding the Waltzers – so there won’t be the usual level of banter (I’m sure my brother will be delighted). I’m tired, and there’s every possibility that I’ll fall asleep shortly after writing this — so let’s be brief, my fine, citrus-seeking friends….

Asian Jackfruit Lettuce Wraps

Jumping on the jackfruit train with wild abandon here guys – but I have absolutely no regrets. It’s so good. It’s got a great texture, it holds sauce like a champ, and it’s one of your five-a-day. It is, admittedly, freaky as heck opening a tin of supposed fruit and being faced with something pink, chunky,…

Chickpea Bread

Okay, first thing’s first – the original recipe from which this stemmed is all over the place in various forms. It’s popular in slimming circles because of its low carbohydrate/high protein makeup, and also because it’s stupidly cheap and easy to make. Me being me, I fiddled with the recipe a fair bit when I…

Spa day with my best gals, a copious number of Life-Changing Tacos, and more wine than any of us would really care to admit to having consumed, for fear of tarnishing…

Breakfast Round-up

Whether or not you agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you can’t deny that it is varied, wondrous, and often slightly bizarre. While I prefer brunch, the potential of the humble brekkie cannot be denied; so here are a few of my favourite breakfasts, varying from 2-minute simplicity to… well,…

Tuna & Artichoke Niçoise Salad

Salad is pretty boring – let’s just get that out there. Consuming leaves, as a concept, is a bit sad, but there are ways that you can make these things less punishing. For example, drowning said leaves in salad dressing, or putting the leaves one by one into a deep fat fryer. HOWEVER, this does…
