My Chocolate

As laid out in my previous two posts (here and here), Mummy and I do love a good adventure.  With this in mind and knowing that I would be home on certain dates, I bought us a chocolate making class via Virgin Experiences.  It was a bit of a random gamble but I went with…

More food, Piggies!

When I was a child, my Mummy had surgery a bit too close to Christmas for my Dad’s liking.  In order to play the supportive husband card and get as many brownie points as possible, he booked to take the four of us plus my maternal Grandmother and Grandfather out to dinner on Christmas Day. …

“Souq al Bahar 4 Fish”

I woke at 5am in a real huff.  I have no clue why.  Perhaps I had been having an enraging dream or something?  It’s highly possible as I am a compulsive dreamer.  Whatever the reason was though, there was no going back to sleep.  I went through Facebook, and Instagram, and caught up on my…

Cajun Turkey Pasta

Quite some time ago, I found a delicious recipe for Cajun chicken pasta that was Slimming World friendly. I made it and it was as tasty as it sounded. When thinking about what to cook for dinner last night this popped into my head. Do you think I could find that recipe anywhere? Nope. Not…

Walden Farms vs Choc Shot

This is a very short post because there is no debate in my mind…. Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup kicks Sweet Freedom’s Choc Shot ass.  It isn’t as watery and it has a better and less synthetic chocolate taste. I can’t compare any other flavours because this is the

Chilly Enough For Chili

Yeah… I am lame, but that made me snigger! Dubai has recently been gong through a bit of a winter period.  Thankfully it is only about 1 month of the year, but this year seemed extra long and worse than normal.  I don’t know if that is because I’ve been here longer or because it…

Pancake Day Yummy-ness!!

I wonder how many hundreds of blog posts have been published in the last 24hrs about pancakes?!  A fair few I would imagine.  I know my reader is full of them.  Why?  Because Pancake Day is amazing! Of course it’s actually called Shrove Tuesday and is the day before Lent, which starts on Ash Wednesday. The…

Vegetable Egg Bake

When The Boy and I first started dating, I decided that I would make a roasted vegetable egg bake.  We had Roast Beef for dinner the night before and there was a bunch of veggies left over.  This is one of my favourite things to do with leftover roasted veggies.  It turns out it was…

Dinner Win!!

I totally had an amazing win for dinner last night!  It was so good that The Boy declared it one of my best kitchen experiments, ever! After coping a mouthful of abuse from a dickhead on Facebook, I was a bit disheartened in my Slimming World cooking efforts.  I felt that I should be making…

Quick! Feed Me!

Do you ever have days where you think that you will pass out if you don’t eat quickly enough?  Or, where you’ve had such of a bitch of a day at work that you just want to eat and then collapse into bed and binge-watch something suitably trashy on Netflix?! If you don’t, you’re not…
