Sorry for the short break, a few things have changed in our routine hence the delay in posting the next recipe/post. So for Valentine's / Mother's day I was treated to a candle lit lovely 3 course meal 🙂 by the wonderful men in my life. They put alot of effort into the meal and... Continue Reading →
When the weather warms up it is always good to have foods that are going to fill us up, be good for us and are simple, easy and fuss free dishes to create. This salad is just that, it ticks all those boxes and the great flavours are an added bonus. I cannot remember how... Continue Reading →
I was asked by my dear brother in-law some time back if there is such a thing as a vegetarian paella and I said yes just replace the meat or fish with vegetables. I had never made it before but always enjoyed the passionate description given by TV chefs when they make or try paella.... Continue Reading →

I was given this recipe by my older sister a few years back, it was a simple onion, tomato and capsicum peppers pie. She had suggested that I could add mushrooms as my husband likes them so I did.

It is a good dish to enjoy as a light lunch with friends or you can make a meal out of it and perhaps serve it with side salad, roast potatoes, stuffed mushrooms etc. It is a good combination of the ingredients and is a very indulgent creamy/cheesy recipe.
