Hello everyone, how has your day been? We have such lovely weather here in the UK, it’s about 25 degrees which is perfect 🙂
I hope you enjoy today’s recipe, it’s quite popular in our household and commonly eaten in Jamaica, usually served with fried dumpling or rice. People make it many different ways, for example bell peppers, more tomato or garlic may be added.
Recipe: Cabbage and Saltfish (serves 8)
3 tbsp oil
1 garlic – crushed
1/2 onion – finely diced
1 tomato – finely chopped
3/4 cabbage – finely sliced
1 tsp mixed
Sprinkle of chilli powder
Sprinkle of black pepper
1 pack of cod salt fish – boil and remove bones
First thing is to prepare the vegetables and set aside on a plate.
Then wash the saltfish and boil, then wash again in cold water.
Heat the oil a pan, once hot add the onion and garlic. Cover with a lid for a few minutes until soft then add the tomato and carrot stirring well.
Add the cabbage and cover with the lid for 5 minutes then add the saltfish and mix.
Pour in the water and cover with the lid again until the cabbage is cooked.
Hello everyone, I hope you are off to a good week. Being back at work has given me less time to prepare food photo’s especially for my Instagram but I’m posting 2 days each week to keep me somewhat consistent. Today I thought I would try something a little different with pizza dough. It’s pretty simple, just twisted to create a more unique appearance. These Pizza Twists would be perfect for a buffet, kids party or even as a snack.
Recipe: Pizza Twists (makes 4)
125g strong bread flour
Pinch of salt
Pinch of basil
Pinch of oregano
3g dried yeast
70ml warm water
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
50g cheddar cheese – grated
To make the dough, place all of the dry ingredients (flour, salt, yeast and herbs) into a bowl. Slowly pour in the water and mix with a spoon until it starts to form a dough.
Knead the dough for about 5 minutes and leave to rest in a bowl for 1 hour until doubled in size.
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and lightly oil an oven tray.
Roll out the dough into a rectangle shape and slice into four strips, spread tomato ketchup and sprinkle cheese over each piece.
Take each strip holding from the ends and twist a few times, then place on the baking tray.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown.
Hi everyone, I hope your week has been good so far!
I just thought I would share a quick, healthy salad recipe if ever you are short of time. I often eat salads alongside my meals to make sure I’m eating a balanced diet and it is always important to reduce the amount of fat, salt and sugar and this salad has none.
2 lettuce leaves
1/2 a carrot
Pinch of chilli powder
Pinch of salt
Wash and prepare all of you salads and place in a serving bowl.
Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. If you’ve seen my previous posts you’ll know I’ve posted quite a few salad recipes before because they are healthy, easy to make and look really colourful. Every since I was a kid we have always had salad along with our Sunday dinner and naturally I’ve always enjoyed making it. No cooking is required just the basic skills of peeling, grating and slicing. Over the years I’ve changed the way I prepare it and my current favourite is to grate and cut the salads fairly small then mix everything together. Posting earlier because it’s so warm outside and this is a great side for your dinner, especially in this UK summer heat.
Side Salad Recipe
Lettuce – shredded
Carrot – grated
Raddish – grated
Take out the amount you want of each salad, depending on how many people are eating.
Wash everything thoroughly and prepare everything, I like to leave the lettuce to dry on a paper towel.
Add everything to a bowl and serve alongside your favourite meal.
Remember salads are supposed to be healthy and by adding oils, dressings, croutons and other food item makes it less nutritious overall.
Hi everyone welcome back to my blog. Today’s recipe features a very versatile vegetable….POTATOES!! You can have it fried, mashed, baked, boiled, wedges or chips, needless to say your options are endless. These chips are filling, full of flavour and go really well as a side to most dishes.
Seasoned Potato Chips recipe (makes 5 potions)

1/2 onion powder
1 tsp dried oregano
