Starbucks Copycat Peach Green Tea Lemonade

Whilst we were on our honeymoon in Florida in 2014 we went to a Starbucks to order our usual skinny caramel latte, when we were stood in the queue I noticed on the board a new cold drink called a peach green tea lemonade. Feeling adventurous we ordered one each. After one sip both of us…

Pasta With Chorizo And Rosemary

This is one of my favorite after work dinners. It’s so quick, simple and delicious. It’s also so versatile, you could add chili if you want to, or less garlic, or add some vegetables to bulk it up. Ingredients Wholewheat penne pasta Spicy Chorizo, chopped into 1cm half round, 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped Sprig…

Clarisonic

One of my first lifestyle blogs I would like to talk about is skin care… I know its a broad topic to start with, but specifically I wanted to discuss my Clarisonic cleansing brush. I’ve been using mine for a couple of weeks now I am amazed at how good it is. If any of…

Sticky BBQ Chicken Wings

I first made these when me and my Hubby were having a Superbowl party, we enjoyed them so much they now feature regularly on our weekly shopping list. The rub and sauce can be made to your own taste, and the measurements are just roughly what we enjoy, so again, feel free to add more…

Salted Caramel Brownies

I found this recipe whilst searching on Pinterest, I cant remember who originally posted it, but I have made some slight adjustments. These brownies are the perfect mix of sweet and salty. I’m not a massive sweet fan so I have toned down the sugar, as I find the caramel gives it more than enough…

Chicken and chorizo paella

This recipe is based on a Jamie Oliver recipe. I can’t remember which book it comes from, as I have so many of them they now they just blend into one. This is great for entertaining, its so easy to make, but looks and tastes like you’ve spent all day in the kitchen. You could…

Lemon and garlic chicken kebabs

This is another super quick after work dinner. I marinate the chicken and night before so all the flavors really soak in. This goes great with my egg friend rice, or you could put it into a pitta bread with some new potatoes and salad. Its so versatile. Feel free to use as much garlic as…

Egg fried rice

The key to good friend rice is preparation. My tip is to cook the rice beforehand and then let it go cold. I usually cook it in the morning before I leave for work, pop it in the fridge and then its ready for when I get home. This rice goes great with any meat…

Teriyaki Salmon

This is one of my favorite quick, after work dinners. You could make this even speeder by using noodles instead of rice. Ingredients Salmon fillets cut into large chunks Teriyaki (enough to coat the salmon) Brown rice Garlic Ginger Sliced chili Coriander   Method The first step is to marinate the salmon in the teriyaki for…

The Best Roast Chicken

You can’t wrong with a roast chicken on a Sunday afternoon in my opinion, and my version is dead easy and so delicious. I always buy a large chicken so I have some meat left over and then use that for a quick meal on Monday. If you would like any left over chicken recipes…
