Butternut Squash Soup with Parsley

I like homemade soups – I just think they are so quick and easy to make that there really is no excuse to buy them. Plus they taste so much better than tinned or cartoned (don’t think that is an actual word but oh well) alternatives. Serves 2 Ingredients 1 medium-large onion 1 tsp olive…

Innocent Coconut Water

I really love the taste of this coconut water, I have tried a few before, but for me, this has been the best. It claims to have a fresh taste and I have to admit I totally get that freshness of flavour when I am drinking it. In the past I have bought coconut water…

Chicken Tikka Masala with Potatoes

Now a tikka masala isn’t an ‘authentic’ Indian dish, it’s one that was adjusted and tailor-made for a different palate.

Easy Lentil and Vegetable Soup (& Baby Food!)

Itsu Vegetable Festival Crystal Noodle Cup

I saw this in the supermarket and it was on offer…it looked like a posh pot noodle and I thought I would give it a try! At 160 calories I thought it would be good as a healthy lunch or dinner option one day; a good thing to have in the cupboard  for when you need something quick…
