Oven-baked Salmon Fishcakes

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Oven-baked Salmon Fishcakes – quick, easy, healthy and tasty recipe your family would love ( I’m pretty sure of it ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

Oven-baked Salmon Fishcakes

I hope your week is going great so far. We are quite busy here and there seems to be no time for any rest. The kids got school, nursery and lots of after school activities so there’s alway somewhere to go and something to do. However, mum and dad got their ‘tv shows nights’ so there’s a balance. As soon as the kids go to sleep we put on a tv show, get some snacks and just relax. ๐Ÿ™‚ It probably doesn’t sound very exciting but to us, being busy parents, is very exciting. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oven-baked Salmon Fishcakes

OK, let’s go back to the recipe now..Enough parents’ talk. ๐Ÿ™‚

These Salmon Fishcakes are not only oven-baked but they’re super simple to make and of course, taste amazing. Kids approved them too. Serve them with some chunky chips and veggies and you’ve got yourself a perfect dinner. Add some mayo or hot sauce and you’ve got an even better on. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just joking, add whatever you fancy, really. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oven-baked Salmon Fishcakes

I used some boiled potatoes, shallots, dill and mustard seeds. That’s all you need, apart from the salmon, oh and some breadcrumbs and an egg to stick everything nicely together. You can make ahead the fish and potatoes (say, the previous day) and thus you’ll save even more time. All you have to do is simply mix all the ingredients together and bake the fish cakes. This is what I did and it took me 5 minutes to shape the fish cakes and another 20 to cook them. Sweet!

Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Fruit Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Fruit Chocolate Chip Cookies – super moist and chocolatey these amazing cookies have become our family’s favorite sweet treat!

Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Fruit Chocolate Chip Cookies

I started making these chunky cookies a few weeks before Christmas and I believe I’ve made them at least 6-7 times already. I know, that’s a lot of cookies but they’re seriously delicious, I warn you! ๐Ÿ™‚ And not to mention how simple they are, easy as pie, really! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve never been a big cookie fan to be honest but I admit these have become my favorite treats recently. They’re super moist (lots of butter!), chocolatey and just perfect.

The first few batches I made were chocolate chip only – these were the kids’s favorite. Recently, I’ve been adding nuts, seeds and dried fruit, apart from the chocolate, and this updated version has become my favorite. I just can’t get enough of them!

I’ve used some raw cashew nuts, pumpkin seeds, goji berries & cranberries. And for the chocolate chips I used the kids’s leftover chocolate Santas. They had way too many of these so this is a great way to reuse them and not waste. Whou would waste chocolate anyway? ๐Ÿ™‚

Chunky Nuts, Seeds & Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies taste even better with coffee/milk/tea. I can probably get half a dozen down with some milk or coffee or even tea. But hey, they’ve got some raw nuts, seeds and dried fruit so that makes them half-healthy? ๐Ÿ™‚ Just joking! There’s nothing wrong in indulging yourself a bot (or a lot). These are definitely worth every calorie. ๐Ÿ™‚

Crunchy Crab Salad

I hope we all have a wonderful year!

I have finally come back to reality (not that I’ve been anywhere, I simply took some time off) and I’m back at blogging. As you may suggest, I’ve got quite a few tasty recipes to share with you and plenty of new ideas to test. Can’t wait! My mind kind of feel refreshedย  so I guess I needed that. And to be honest I was very busy during the festive period and couldn’t find time for all the thing I’ve planned so I kind of decided to go with the flow in order to have stress free Christmas and New Year. ๐Ÿ™‚

Crunchy Crab Salad

I made the Crunchy Crab salad for New Year’s Eve and I fell in love with it. Crab usually has quite distinctive flavour and the one i used had also a very strong smell. I was certain I wasn’t gonna like it but I was wrong. Combined with carrots, cucumber, chives, red onion and cream cheese it tasted divine. The smell was definitely gone. Don’t get me wrong, you could still tell you were having seafood but the flavour was much more subtle.

Crunchy Crab Salad

I served mine (half of the salad actually) on seeded oat biscuits which I’ve been obsessed with. I only found them recently and every time I go shopping I get at least two packs. ๐Ÿ™‚ The other half I served on blinis which I had made the previous day. It was actually the first time I made blini and I simply loved them, they were super easy to make too. It’s really up to you how you’re gonna serve the Crunchy Crab Salad. There are so many tasty options so pick the one you fancy.

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˜„

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.

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

I’ve been really into Chinese recently. We’ve had a few lazy nights when we ordered from our local Chinese shop(which by the way is delicious) and I was all about making Chinese at home. One of the recipes I recreated at home was this Simple Kung Pao Chicken. I also love the sticky Chinese ribs which I’m hoping to share with you next week.

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. They have tasted some slightly spiced stuff but this chicken was too much for them. It was on fire!๐Ÿ”ฅย I loved it though. It really warmed me up.
