Every page turned revealed more and more recipes I wanted to try out, so here is another one by the wonderful Yotam Ottolenghi…cauliflower cake. This is almost like a baked cauliflower frittata.

Contrary to my last post about cutting out cakes and sweet stuff, and focusing more on a healthy diet, here is a recipe for chocolate-dipped pistachio madeleines!  Even though I am not technically eating cake at the moment, I still love baking.  So on Monday night I suddenly had an…

STUFFED PEPPERS

I have done something quite unprecedented recently…I’ve decided to cut out crisps, chocolate, cake (yes, really), burgers, butter…basically all the rich, fattening, decadent, indulgent food I feast on daily.  I don’t want to bore you with the reasons why, but for now I’m just taking a little break so I…
