Chilli Crab Silky Omelette from #fiveingredients
As a child I was not a big fan of crab.. I remember (when I was old enough) I ordered a seafood pizza (I actually like them - judge-away! I will never change.) which had crab-sticks on and put me off for(almost)ever.. But then I discovered crab meat. And now I quite enjoy it, I won’t say I LOVE it but I don’t hate it, I like it. So this omelette was a must try: easy, quick and the crab turns into a smoke-like flavour with the cheddar cheese and warmth of the chilli. And it is weird: the omelette is silky! No idea how that works because I made the same recipe for the boyfriend but replaced the crab meat with chorizo and did not get the same effect. Any ideas?
Crispy Squid & Smashed Avocado from #fiveingredients
I always try to do the squid recipes (or how we say in South Africa: #calamari ) for this boyfriend of mine. He loves squid. And from taking the first bite he told me: “Please can you make this again, it is A-mazing!” And it was. The creaminess and freshness of the avocado cuts through the oiliness of the fried squid, while the crispy bits is like: HEAVEN! And then that chilli sauce, oh man! It is sooooo good!
Pleasures. The slight crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, chocolate melting and bursting in your mouth. Is there anything more satisfying than the classic chocolate chip cookie? We think everyday of the week calls for celebration. Every moment we get to be alive should be celebrated with incredible fervor. Even so... Friday's have a little something special about them. Something exciting, comforting with a resounding sense of Freedom. Even when you don't work a traditional work week it still remains the last weekday and thus we put on our dancing shoes before we enter the kitchen! In the words of Lady Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham, "What is a weekend?" We say today and everyday indulge in all that you love. Inspired by @mushroomsandthyme 's absolutely perfect cookies.

Had some left over ingredients from the granola I️ made the other day and decided to throw together some pumpkin spice energy balls 🍂 Energy balls are super easy to assemble, can be modified to adjust flavor to your taste, and are the perfect on the go, quick snack
What’s in the mix- old fashioned oats + puffed rice cereal + pumpkin purée + peanut butter + maple syrup + chia seeds + flax seeds + pepitas + dark chocolate crumbles (had to) + the spice mix-> ground ginger + nutmeg + ground cinnamon + ground cloves + and a little drizzle of honey 🍁
One of the best tips to achieving a crispy yet light and airy thick crust is not to add oil to the mix. Instead, add the oil into the bowl for the rise, so the flour (in the dough mix) can hydrate to its fullest. For home ovens, baking on a (super hot) preheated pizza stone is a must as well.

Creamy Mustard Chicken from #fiveingredients
These are not unfamiliar flavours.. What I do love, not only of this recipe but all the way through this book is that you suddenly realise with how little you can get by. Which is brilliant! Chicken, red onion, mustard, cream and mushrooms creates a dish so fulfilling, rich and most importantly satisfying that you don’t even miss the usual carrots, celery, parmesan, bacon and herbs. Simple, delicious and pleasing.
I’m a wings girl. Big time. So believe me when I️ tell you these were some of the best I’ve ever had. Baked Greek chicken wings from @themediterraneandish 😍 I️ think I️ could eat these every week. Made a simple salad for a side- farro + arugula + toms + feta drizzled with evoo, balsamic vinegar and a little salt and pepp. Try this combo! So yummy! 😋
Sizzling Seared Scallops from #fiveingredients
I cheated a little with this recipe.. I left out the black pudding, can’t eat the stuff.. It is the pork thing. Anyways, so this is a #4ingredients dish - yeah! A fabulous 4 Ingredients dish. Peas and mint - I mean you just can’t go wrong. But then, it is perfect because the potatoes are creamy, the peas sweet, the mint herby and none of these flavours overpowering the delicate scallops. They did not even need lemon, just salt, pepper and 4 minutes in a hot pan. Lunch was perfect!
My sister is coming to town today! 🎉 So excited to spend some time with her and do a little dress shopping🍾👰🏻 ____
Last night I️ made some pumpkin spice granola (recipe from @simplyquinoa ) So. Damn. Good. Immediately made a parfait when I️ woke up this morning and had to control myself from eating the whole jar 😍

Brightening my day with a cup of yellow-hued yum: turmeric latte, the best version in town. ☕️💛🤗 I am loving all these recent openings in TLV highlighting healthy ingredients in their menu, with a focus on adding green spaces and gardens built-in as main design. This cafe also has tons of natural light flooding into their space that is nice to enjoy while sipping your cup. I'm excited to spend more time nibbling through the city's newest charmer, @citizen_tlv's menu. ☕️💕 Cheers y'all! Yom tov. ☕️💙✌🏻 #mycoffeeview#tumericlatte#sharingtables#foodtrend#telaveat#tlvfood#israelifood #☕
Bangin’ Beef Stew from #fiveingredients
Okay so at first I was a bit disappointed by how this dish came out, it was watery and I had to let the juices reduce on the stove after it has cooked for 2 hours in the oven, and still no “dark and sticky” sauce - WTF! But oh honey! The taste made up for the absence of “dark and sticky”. It is rich, fragrant and warm! The peppers are sweet and rustic, and the beef is as tender as bruised ego. It is just fabulous!
Easy Rustic Gnocchi from #fiveingredients
First: check out my gorgeous plate.. The most thoughtful gift I’ve received yet! I am so lucky to have people in my life who supports this wild and wonderful passion!. Secondly: THIS Gnocchi is totes easy to make. I used two baked potatoes, after peeling they weighted 398g (you need 400g). I struggled to flip the gnocchi through the asparagus and thyme - they got sticky. Next time I’ll add the gnocchi to the pan and let it get some colour before I add the thyme. I also left out the 100ml of water. The water transferred from the pot to the pan when I spooned out the gnocchi was enough to be honest. Love this dish, love this plate!
Y’all. It’s cold outside. I️ was wearing a beanie inside my damn house today 😳 On days like this nothing beats a big bowl of comfort food. Beef stew was my favorite cold weather meal when I️ was growing up, but for some reason I’ve never made it myself 🤔 Maybe because it’s attached to memories of my mom cooking, so by default I️ assume only Mom can make it. Iono 🤷🏻♀️Today I️ finally made some myself and it is just what I️ needed.
Clean eating crockpot beef stew from @thecasualcraftlete This recipe came from a random Pinterest search and is sooo yummy! I️ added extra garlic (shocker) and served it over some whole grain rice 😋
Ever have one of those days when you just want to cry, put a straw into a bottle of wine, and crawl into bed? That was me yesterday. Thankfully when I️ have those days Niles knows how to cheer me up- food. I’ve told y’all, with me the answer is always food...or wine...or both. Without saying a word he went in the kitchen, cooked an entire meal (even made his own salad dressing, he fancy 💁🏻♂️), AND he cleaned it all up. I️ could weep 😭💜 Sometimes life sucks, but its sucks less when you surround yourself with awesome people 💜
Is it just me or is anyone else having a hard time with this time change? I’ve been seriously struggling to keep my energy up throughout the day. Plus it is cold as hell outside, my southern blood has me wanting to wrap myself in a blanket burrito and ignore the mountain of work I️ need to do. I’ve been a mess this week trying to stay on top of everything but I’m thankful for Niles and our spontaneous lunch dates. He keeps me sane and reminds me how to focus on what’s important and forget the rest. He’s a keeper 😉
p.s. I’m completely aware that ‘cold as hell’ makes no sense 🤷🏻♀️
We are so often called to sweet and salty flavors. Many western nations tend to ignore or neglect the bitter flavor/taste element in favor of the sweetness of pastries or the saltiness of potatoes. However, the bitter flavor is an essential component of maintaing balance and overall wellness within the body. Not to mention absolutely delicious when paired with other divine flavor profiles. Radicchio leaves paired with salty, creamy Stilton Blue Cheese and sweet roasted chestnuts. @lialemonandvanilla captured the vibrant beauty of radicchio so perfectly. The bright purples and whites budding with extraordinary flavor. She created this recipe from the amazing @nigellalawson. A winter salad that can easily make it's way onto any Dinner Table! Also incredibly simple to make Vegan by replacing the traditional blue cheese with a truffle cheese from @miyokos_kitchen or making your own vegan cashew blue cheese! Let your imagination lead you. ✨
Quick Asian Fishcakes from #fiveingredients
A fishcake recipe that does not contain bread, flour or eggs? Say whaaat?! But it is true! By dicing some of the salmon fillets really finely, a mushiness (I know it sounds gross) is created which allows for all the bits to stay together. It is Big Bang Theory science! And delicious! For once a fishcake does not taste of everything but fish. Also, 2 minutes frying on each side cooks them perfectly. Served with wilted spinach and a poached egg - yasss!
Monday felt like summer and today my grass seems to have disappeared 🍂 So happy fall weather has decided to appear, maybe it will stick this time 🙏🏻
I’ve had trouble sleeping recently and am really feeling it today. All I want to do is snuggle in the couch with Bowser and watch Netflix...the struggle is real 🙈Hoping this energy packed snack and some fall air will help me finally get moving- siggi’s plain + pomegranate seeds + blackberries + pepitas. Any tips related to my sleep troubles would be amazing! 😄
All-day Mexican Breakfast from #fiveingredients
Brilliant, brilliant dish! Spicy, chewy, gooey goodness. I actually drained the beans and did not add half the can of liquid cause I felt it did not need it. It worked out pretty well! My eggs took 4 minutes on medium heat with the lid on to provide these perfectly soft beauties. And the white was a bit crispy at the bottom of the pan - heaven! Thank you for the recommendation @traceymohab 😍
Tacos are great, I know, but so are chicken fajita salads 🌶 If you’ve never made cilantro lime dressing, do it now and thank me later. You can put it on salads, tacos, sammies, or whatever your pretty heart desires. It’s bangin’ 😋
Cilantro Lime Dressing🌿- 2cups cilantro leaves + 2 cloves garlic + 1 lime, juice of + 1 cup Greek yogurt + s&p *blend until smooth* (you can also add a little olive oil if you’d like and adjust garlic, s&p to your taste) 😊
Spiced Whole Roast Cauli from #fiveingredients
This is probably one of the most underdeveloped and boring vegetables in the world.. But @sticksnsushi changed this for me: their fried cauliflower with black sesame truffle sauce #todie ! And this baby is up there! The yogurt-harissa creates this almost airtight container allowing the cauliflower to steam in its own moisture infused with the fragrant and sweet harissa. Topped off with fresh pomegranate, crunchy dukkah and happy souls!.
