SUPER EASY SAVOURY HAND PIES

Once I thawed the pastry, I cut it into squares.  And […]

HONEY GARLIC SALMON – a captain cooks creation

Encouraged by the delicious results and popularity of his Honey Roast Duck a while ago (recipe here),  Francois asked permission to invade my land galley once again and I’m lovin’ it!  He cooks (I’ve never had any of his creations that haven’t  been super delicious).  He cleans up after himself (how could I ever complain about that). Added to that, he’s just an all round […]

GRILLED SALMON with AVOCADO SALSA

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 3 and 4

Still breathing, still kicking, still haven’t killed each other. According to the Whole 30 timeline we are about to hit the ‘Kill all things‘ phase, so I planned our meals with lots of carb-dense veggies to help offset any carbohydrate withdrawl. On Day 3 though there was a moment when I felt a serious PMS session coming on but without the P or the M. […]
