A couple of my friends are getting married in May. In Greece. But will get back to that part another day, I’m not ready to face ingredient difficulties yet. They have asked me to make their wedding cake. Well, actually I offered, it probably came before ‘congratulations’. The trouble is, they don’t really like cake…
I’ve decided to share savoury dishes too! All good food deserves to be on The Goody Blog after all.
My uncle is Columbian and has introduced a love for Mexican food in the family. One of my favourite things to do when I first moved to England alone at 17 was to go to my aunt and uncles for wraps with tones of guacamole! We had tacos rarely as they are more fiddly I suppose… Another good dish was tortilla chips with all the wrap condiments piled on top, covered with cheese and heated until melted in the oven. Mmm! Kind of like greedy tacos actually!
Anyway, here are my tacos and my first try at making them vegetarian.
I’m watching The Great British Bake Off with my mum and sister, we have started making desserts for ourselves to eat while watching so we don’t get so jealous of Paul and Mary.
It does’t work, but it sure helps.
Lemon meringue pie is one of those wonderful desserts that fill me with nostalgia and familiarity. A good lemon meringue pie is like a comforting hug from my mum. Crunchy pastry filled with smooth tangy lemon curd and topped with fluffy meringue with a crisp shell… Mmmm! It’s making my mouth water just thinking of it.
Here is another super simple dessert which, unlike the chocolate fondant, is guilt free! In fact I had this for breakfast yesterday without even a trace of ‘I shouldn’t be eating dessert for breakfast‘.
Believe it or not, I do try to be healthy but I love to indulge too, everything in moderation right? But if you can make something thats healthy and tastes like a naughty treat then your winning!
Especially if you can have it for breakfast too.
Chocolate fondants have got to be up there with one of the most indulgent desserts and surprisingly enough one of the easiest.
