DIP IT LOW, PICK IT UP SLOW, ROLL IT ALL AROUND!

Okay so I think it’s quite clear I have an obsession with Oreos they taste good with everything, well almost everything anyway ( I can’t imagine an Oreo stuffed beef burgers tasting too great!). The craziest thing is it took me years to grow the much needed courage to try an Oreo,this is going to sound really weird but I always thought the cookie was too black,the filing too white, what is this, how the hell can it taste good, I’d rather not. I eventually grew brave enough and tried one with my eyes closed My reaction:”Shit, this a damn good cookie”, I haven’t looked backed since! Moving on, today I’m showing you how to make Oreo Dipped Strawberries. How cute would this be for a baby or bridal shower? It’s as easy as 123, ABC and it’s technically one of your  5 a day!

EVERYONE LOVES A QUICKIE!

It’s my dads 58th birthday! Whoooohooooo so we’re having a little family get together. I’ve had the longest week so didn’t particularly feel like slaving over anything in the kitchen. Ain’t nobody got time for that. So, as I laid on my sofa and prayed for guidance on what the hell to make it came to me, like a thief in the night: BRUSCHETTAAA BABY!. My recipe is ever so slightly different from the traditional Italian as I add pieces of sliced ham into it, it tastes x100000000 times better this way trust me. Healthy, quick and easy! Here’s the recipe guys:

WHEN SWEET MEETS SAVOURY…

Hey guys, it’s Sunday my favourite day of the week! Don’t you just love the peacefulness of Sundays, it’s just so fresh you know like waking up and smelling roses, jogging in the rain, whipping your bra off after a long day Hahaha. Moving swiftly on, my favourite thing about Sundays has to be the whole family in the kitchen cooking up a delicious storm! So, today I decided to make honey and lemon flavoured chicken wings. It’s so juicy and sweet and has that little kick of spice chicken always needs. It’s great as an appetizer or as part of a dinner alongside some rice or potatoes. It’s the perfect healthy meal, you will love it!  

FOR THE LOVE OF CRUMBLE!

ALL HAIL, THE PEACH CRUMBLE. This is by far one of my most favoured desserts, the warmness, the coldness, soft, crunchy. The peach crumble has it all going on.  It’s the perfect follow up to any dinner! But should I tell I tell you what the best thing about is? It only takes 20 minutes to make and you don’t even have to do much. With the smallest of efforts you get maximum satisfaction, and that I promise you. So lets get baking!

CRISPY SALT ‘N’ PEPPER SQUID. SO GOOD YOU’LL HAVE ALL THE NEIGHBOURS LINED UP!

Okay, so here’s the deal with squid. It really isn’t the cutest thing in the sea. It looks exactly like Kang and Kudos (the aliens from The Simpsons). I mean it REALLY isn’t visually appealing. However, a few months ago I was dining with friends at  a Chinese restaurant and we decided to try something different so we went with squid. After one bite into it, I kissed goodbye to chicken and all other meats (temporarily of course!). I’ve never been a huge fan of seafood but this is D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!  Here’s the recipe:
