Baked Meatballs

I love these light and full of flavour meatballs. Easy to make and easy to bake with a high protein content.

Gordon Ramsay's Stuffed Roasted Chicken

I know I haven't been posting for the past week or so but I will make it up with this delicious festive recipe. I wrote it down while watching Ramsay's ultimate cookery course and tried it a few days later for my partner's birthday and I can assure you it was fantastic.

Curried Lentils and Red Quinoa

Everyone who knows me is aware that I am not a big fan of indian food, especially curries. I did try a few but they just aren't my thing. But as every rule has it's exception the only indian food I enjoy is the modern indian cuisine at The Cinnamon Club as they don't do the same old sloppy curries. Anyway long story short I got inspired by their approach and cooked a lentils and quinoa curry today and really enjoyed it.

Stuffed Chicken Breast Wrapped in Prosciutto

Caviar stuffed eggs

Easy to make, ready in minutes and it doesn't even have to be very expensive. Even thought I love some good caviar on artisan crackers you can't have that very often (and we all know why :) ) so this lumpfish caviar is the perfect alternative.

Diet Creme Brûlée

Creme Brûlée must be one of the easiest desserts ever ... for me at least.

Lemon Pie

After seeing a key lime pie on the Food Network Uk I got inspired in making a low carb lemon pie, and since I had some really nice Sorento lemons and all the ingredients in the cupboards this recipe couldn't get any easier.

Black Peppered Tofu

I came across to this recipe last year on my birthday while dinning at Ottolenghi's  NOPI and like all their vegetarian menu was fantastic. So browsing thru his Plenty book I found the recipe and decided to make it as it's Vegan Sunday :).
I did change a few of the ingredients and if you want to check the original recipe you can find it in the book at page 44.

Easy to make for those lunches when you are out of ideas.

Apricot Bavarois with its Coulis

I got this recipe from The Montignac Diet Cookbook (p. 326) which I bought a few months ago and even thought I promised I will try all the recipes ... I didn't :) . Is never too late so I made this refreshing no bake apricot bavarois.

Baked Apples

Today while running from the gym to the supermarket to get the ingredients for lunch I happen to see these beautiful pink lady apples and instantly remembered this fab baked apple recipe that I used to enjoy  in my childhood. Even thought I had to adjust the recipe, the result was delicious.
