My colleague at work was saying how she was going out for Chinese in the evening, so I asked her what her favourite Chinese meal is...and she said sweet and sour prawns. Sooo I thought hmmm, seeing as I love chicken, why not try and make sweet and sour chicken from the comfort of my own home! Here it goes..

This is a deliciousssss quick breakfast, told to me by my dear friend. At first, the sound of ketchup with eggs sounds rather odd, but when you try it you will love it. You can vary the way you make your scrambled eggs, below is just the simple version of scrambled eggs I made to go with the muffins.

I had a recipe request for a healthy yet easy chicken wing recipe. Sticky chicken wings always seemed appealing, so this recipe makes it healthier by avoiding the frying bit - rather you cook it in the oven. I don't like eating skin of the chicken, so I wanted to remove the skin from the chicken wings, yet the butcher said that is pretty difficult - so I left it on. However, I cut off excess skin and cleaned up the wings at home before use.

I have been meaning to make baklawa for soooo long, so this is well over due! I always knew it was not a difficult recipe, yet I learnt from this attempt at baklawa, and I will share with you tips to ensure you perfect it when you make it. This version has a slight Moroccan twist to it, as you can tell from the syrup added at the end.

Madeira cake is a good type of cake to make if you want something strong, that will not crumble if you carve it or decorate it. This is the reason I chose to make a madeira cake, as I made one square base, and I wanted to carve another cake into a heart shape to place on top. I have placed the recipe for the madeira cake below (not what was used for decoration, as this will vary depending on what you want - although feel free to ask if you are interested). I have also written the recipe to make one small madeira cake (18cm cake tin)

I had a recipe request for jerk chicken, so here I am fulfilling this request :) To make the marinate is super easy, preparing it the night before means you have dinner almost ready for you the following day. I enjoyed making this because it's lovely exploring different cuisines, and here we are getting a taste of Jamaica :D

I had a few vegetables I needed to use up, and I needed to make something that doesn't take too long to cook, so I thought a pasta bake would be perfect for this. You can adjust the vegetables according to what you have on hand, I have listed what I used only because these vegetables were in my fridge :)

Musakhan is a traditional Palestinian food, made with sumac (a tangy spice). I once tasted musakhan as a sandwich at a friends house, and I absolutely loved it! So ever since I really wanted to make it myself. I tasted it in pitta bread, but my friend recommended to make it in tortilla wraps...so here it goes...
