Nigella Lawson’s Moonblush Tomatoes

When the perfect recipe lands in your inbox and you have all the ingredients, you head to your kitchen. Meet Nigella Lawson’s Moonblush Tomatoes. I used fresh thyme as I had it on hand and it calls for Maldon Salt which is worth the splurge.

Sweet dreams wee ones. See you in the morning!

Good Morning Moonblush Tomatoes.

Nigella’s Moonblush Tomatoes = super simple linguine. Five ingredients – tomatoes, linguine, evoo, fresh thyme and parmesan cheese. Super simple and absolutely delicious.

Buon Appetito!

What Should I Make For – Crispy Asian Chicken Wings

Making chicken wings at home is super simple. I love this recipe for Crispy Asian Chicken Wings from the What Should I Make For Blog. Whether you marinate for a few hours or overnight as I did this time, these wings are definitely full of flavour.

Eat Yourself Skinny Spicy Shrimp

I love Shrimp. It is super simple to cook making it a simple weekday meal option. If you are looking for a new recipe, try this Spicy Shrimp one from the Eat Yourself Skinny blog. Since I watch my sodium content when cooking, I used a lot less salt than the recipe called for but it didn’t lack any flavour because of all the other spices. Super simple to pull together and definitely delicious!

Anthony Bourdain

“Just be nice. Getting angry and frustrated in much of the world doesn’t help at all. It’s incomprehensible, you lose face, it makes you look ridiculous. Have a willingness to try new stuff. Be grateful for any hospitality offered. And be flexible in your plans, because a rigid itinerary is lethal to a good time.” 
I absolutely loved Anthony Bourdain. He was a great storyteller who I was lucky to see live a few years ago. I loved following his adventures of travel, food and drink while interacting with people in many places in the world that I likely will never see. Anthony was one of my favourite people on television. Thankful his legacy will carry on through his many shows and the stories he has left the world. Sad to see his final episode of Parts Unknown air this evening.
Anthony – you are definitely be missed and always remembered. RIP.

Sweet and Sour Spare Ribs

Love how food evokes so many memories from growing up. Sweet and sour spare ribs were one of my childhood favourites. There never seemed to be enough sauce to put over rice so definitely need to increase the ingredients. Thankful to find the cookbook that contained the recipe and the page reflects how often we made this. Definitely a family fave for mine.

Together: Our Community Cookbook

“The power of food is more than just the meal itself; there’s the story behind it. When you get to know the story and the recipe, you get to know the person behind it. That’s what we’re talking about in terms of coming together, to really engage and talk and be able to celebrate what connects us, rather than what divides us. That, I believe, is the ethos of Together.” – Duchess of Sussex

I love cookbooks, coffee table books and hearing people’s stories. I love how food connects us and is part of our family history. I absolutely adore this project and how it brings hope and community after the horrific fire at Grenfell Tower in London. Together: Our Community Cookbook brings together things I love – food, people, photography, a sense of community and giving back. The book is absolutely beautiful and will help the Hubb Community Kitchen to grow and thrive. A beautiful project to support. I highly recommend purchasing a copy of Together and helping the women at the Hubb Kitchen.
