Sunday cooking!

Standard

Don’t feel like cooking today? That sounds like me most of the time 😀 .. Actually it’s not the cooking I have a problem with .. it’s more the thought of ‘what’ to cook that is the real dilemma. This simple to make Chicken Steak recipe came to my rescue yesterday and seemed like the perfect treat to end the weekend. The ingredients required are very basic, and the whole dish can be prepared in a matter of 10 minutes! I’ve added the quantities according to my own taste, but feel free to add or deduct according to your own taste buds ….. There, that’s your cooking sorted for today then! 🙂 Time for me to figure out what to cook today now 😐 …

Balance is the key to life …

Standard

After the divine chocolatey dessert earlier this week, I was on the look out for something extremely healthy to post next in order to balance it out a little bit … Due to certain commitments, I was unable to make something myself but knew exactly which friend to call, as there’s always something delicious cooking up in her kitchen! Her name is Hawa Farooq but I always refer to her as the ‘Kitchen Queen’ as she always has quick solutions to all problems smile emoticon … Staying true to her title, she came to my rescue this time, as she had made these incredibly healthy Lettuce Wraps! These are my favourite starters at PF Changs restaurant, but this pic has tempted me to try it out at home one of these days too! Don’t these make you feel so healthy? I feel like I can have another brownie after this one 😀 .. Recipe to follow soon … Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
