I have to thank my fabulous neighbours for introducing me to these delicious cheesy poofs. These cheese balls are best when eaten a few minutes after they come out of the oven, however, my son still loves them a few hours later in his school lunch. The dough can be made in advance and frozen into balls ready to be baked from frozen when needed.

This is my take on a traditional Mexican cake made from chick peas. I love baking with basic pantry items as I often have them on hand and they are usually inexpensive.

This recipe uses a food processor, but a stick blender will also work. […]

But pregnancy nausea lasts a long fucking time and I am only just starting to feel moderately better. My family and I will be welcoming baby number three in mid-spring sometime and fingers crossed for a smooth rest of the pregnancy and a return of my healthy […]

Shakshuka is a staple dish originating from Tunisia (northern-most country of Africa). The basic dish consists primarily of eggs poached in a tomato base that is flavoured with garlic, chili, and spices. This dish can be made for breakfast, brunch,  lunch or dinner and it can be adapted in many ways depending on what you have available at the time. Traditionally it is eaten with bread but I also love it served with beans, polenta […]
