    Caramelised Paprika Pineapple

      When does a “set of instructions to make food” become a recipe?  Is it as soon as you have a set quantity for each ingredient or is it always considered a recipe? hmm… See I learnt to cook from my mum, and like any Indian cook I’ve seen, cooking is more about adding & testing ingredients whilst you taste.  So of course, it’s really hard to write a food blog post, when you don’t know exactly how it started in the first place lol Anyway, enough of my ramblings 😛 Caramelised Paprika Pineapple.. just the word caramelised can make one drool right? I mean nothing bad has ever come…

    The Nowhere Child, Christian White : Book Review

    #FreshStart – There’s no turning back now…

    12 months ago I started on a journey.  A journey to get fitter & healthier, not only for the sake of my family, but because I needed to do something for myself.  I won’t lie, whilst dropping the kg’s wasn’t on the top of the list, it was definitely on the list.  Like a lot of people on this journey, I started off all gung-ho with the best plans in mind, and like a lot of people I faltered along the way.  I am proud to say though, that the majority of plans I started out with, is still in place today.   2 months ago, I got the opportunity…
