Fish ´n´chips cookies (chocolate & chilli)

For me, chocolate and chilli is a great combination! I think they are 2 flavours which compliment each other nicely, and they taste great in this spiced cookie! The quantity in this recipe makes enough for around 50 cookies. So what are you waiting for, give them a try! Ingredients: 350g plain flour 150g brown…

Tangy Seasonal Fruit Salad – Kiwi Tangerine & Pomegranate

I´ve been in a bit of a dilemma people! Since starting this blog, several people have given me advice on the best way to move forward. Many said you have to ´niche down´, to choose one type of food and stick to it. So, I reluctantly decided to focus on fish and seafood dishes, keeping health in…
