Hearty Taco Soup

Happy Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Hearty Taco Soup – so simple to make, delicious and heart-warming – just perfect for this kind of weather we’ve got at the moment.

Hearty Taco Soup

It was actually snowing here yesterday and you can’t imagine how excited we all were. It’s been a good few years since the last time it snowed properly so that was quite a festive day we had.ย ๐Ÿ˜€ย Well, the snow managed to stay for a few hours only but still better than nothing. And today we’re back to normal – it’s been raining all day, the lights in the house are on since morning (sometimes I wonder whether it’s afternoon or evening). If only it could snow at Christmas and New Year’s Eve!ย ๐Ÿ™‚ย Let’s get back to the recipe now..

Hearty Taco Soup

I used beef and pork mince, corn, cheese, sour cream, tomato sauce and some spices. I’d definitely have used some beans too but I didn’t have any at the house. So if you could use any, I’d say go for some pinto beans. The taco soup was cooked in my favorite cast iron casserole. Did I guys tell you about it? I’m pretty sure I did, but honestly, I simply love it.ย ๐Ÿ˜†ย I served it with tortilla chips, sour cream, shredded cheese and some hot jalapeno peppers. I actually had lots of tortilla chips with it as I dipped them in the soup. It was soo yummy! Make sure to serve it hot and if you opt in for the spicy stuff you’ll definitely warm up if not sweating.ย ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Oreo Hot Chocolate

Happy Wednesday all! Today’s recipe is Oreo Hot Chocolate – made with 85% dark chocolate this is not a regular hot chocolate – it’s a pure delight.

Oreo Hot Chocolate

It’s topped up with whipped cream and a few Oreo biscuits, oh and a chocolate bar on a side, you know, just in case.ย ๐Ÿ™ˆย I’m not gonna talk about health benefits and calories (duh, obviously) here but this will definitely warm you up.ย ๐Ÿ˜€ย And it’s a real treat. I honestly, couldn’t finish the whole glass, even though I’m a true chocolate lover, that’s how intense it was. I should’ve probably made them smaller or may be divided the chocolate between three glasses. Anyway, this was by far the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tried.

Oreo Hot Chocolate

All you have to do is to simply melt some good quality dark chocolate with milk, simple as that. Make sure to use chocolate with at least 75% cocoa solids, less than that it’s not really dark, as far as I know. I’m sure it’ll taste amazing with milk chocolate too though.ย ๐Ÿ˜‹

This recipe was inspired by my recent trip to Belgium. I don’t think I’ve actually mention about that here, oops. ๐Ÿ˜†ย So, yes, in a few words, we spent (my whole family) a few days in Brussels enjoying the city and some great food. I also had an amazing hot chocolate there but to be honest this one is even better, probably because it’s even more intense and chocolatey. There’s no secret to make a good hot chocolate really – simply use good quality chocolate! Or I might use a secret ingredient, who knows?ย ๐Ÿ˜„

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Milk Chocolate Flapjack with Goji Berry, Cranberries & Seeds – another Christmas inspired recipe that is so tasty I simply can’t get enough of it.ย ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Milk Chocolate Flapjack with Goji Berry, Cranberries & Seeds

Not only these flapjack bites are generously soaked in butter but they’ve got a thick layer of milk chocolate. At least the oats, dry fruit and seeds are on the healthy side so I think it balances things out.ย ๐Ÿ˜†

I used cranberries, goji berries, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. The result was crunchy, sweet and buttery flapjack bites – perfect as a snack, dessert or whenever you crave something sweet and crunchy.

They are suitable for freezing which I did so I still have some of these beauties left. I munch on them almost everyday. But seriously, what’s not to love about them.

Milk Chocolate Flapjack with Goji Berry, Cranberries & Seeds

Oh, I forgot to mention.. I also added some raw cashew nuts in the mixture and desiccated coconut. You can really add any seeds, nuts or dry fruit you fancy. And did I mention there’s no cooking involved? Yay! What you have to do is to simply mix all the ingredients together, empty in a tray and freeze for a couple of hours. That’s all, simple as that.

Milk Chocolate Flapjack with Goji Berry, Cranberries & Seeds

It seems to me the more Christmas is approaching the more sweet and indulgent stuff I’m making. I usually don’t make that much but now th kids want to make Christmas cookies, festive hot chocolate, Christmas cupcakes and whatnot. So it’s kinda inevitable at the moment. But we don’t complain, we really enjoy trying what we’ve made, especially the kids. And that’s what Christmas is all about, isn’t it

OK, back to the recipe now..I added some fresh salad, tomato, mayo and of course, cheese. ๐Ÿ™‚ This simple sandwich turned into perfection.

Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins

Happy Saturday all! Today’s recipe is Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins – and let the festive season begins! ๐Ÿ˜€

Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins

As you can see these Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins are loaded with chocolate, like lots of it so that’s enough of a good reason for me to make them this festive season. They’re one of the simplest muffins I’ve ever made. It only takes 15 minutes for them to cook. I think it actually takes more time to make them look like Christmas trees. I used some desiccated coconut hoping to make them look like snowy Christmas trees. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a great way t get your kids involved and leave them to decorate the muffins. They probably won’t look like Christmas trees at the end but that’s ok. ๐Ÿ˜€ This reminds me, I should make some Christmas cookies as my kids love decorating them.

Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins

No matter how healthy we’re trying to be, it’s this time of the year again and there’s always something sweet and naughty to try so that’s a tricky task. Seriously, what’s Christmas without some indulgent food (ok, probably too much of it). But hey, there’s January, it’s usually when people make their New Year’s resolutions so it’s a good time to get back in shape. ๐Ÿ™‚ Till then, let’s just try to find a healthy balance.

Happy Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Pumpkin & Chocolate Biscuit Cake – so creamy, chocolatey and simply irresistible!

Pumpkin & Chocolate Biscuit Cake

I’m telling you guys, this cake is just perfection – biscuit layers, with mascarpone and cream, pumpkin & of course, lots of chocolate. Oh, and on top – my fav caramelized pecans. We really enjoyed this cake and I honestly had a bit too many pieces, but it really was amazing.

It’s also so simple to make, I actually used digestive biscuits for the layers, soaked in some strong espresso & brandy mix. So no flour, no baking, no fuss really. The other main ingredients are the mascarpone & cream mixture, pumpkin and some chocolate spread (like a jar of it ๐Ÿ˜€ ). This beautiful cake was topped up with some caramelized pecans for a crunchy finish.

Simple Kung Pao Chicken

Ok, so let’s be honest, I’ve been quite behind for the last couple of weeks. I’ve barely completed my weekly tasks (I’ve got quite a few of them, as we all do) and on top of that I feel so tired. Was it the half-term? Not sure. Luckily I’m starting to pick my tasks and feel a bit more energised so should be back to normal soon. This was me complaining. Better get back to the recipe cause I’ll completely lose the focus of this post.ย ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Simple Kung Pao Chicken

The whole family loved the kung pao chicken. I served it with rice and some veggies. However, I usually have to make two separate pots – one for grown-ups and the other one for the kiddos.

All you need is chicken, peanuts (although i used cashews ), fresh chillies, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, garlic & ginger – really simple but so tasty. You can also serve it with noodles.

Mini Kale Pizzas

Happy Thursday guys! Today’s recipe is Mini Kale Pizzas – loaded with veggies & Mozzarella cheese, these green pizzas are perfect for a healthy snack on the go.

Mini Kale Pizzas

Who says pizza can’t be healthy? I recently read an amazing article discussing 26 Science-backed health benefits of kale that I didn’t even know existed.

Not to mention the benefits of kale.
