Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake

Happy Wednesday guys! Recipe of the day is Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake – moreish & simply irresistible & it doesn’t even require baking!

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake

It’s amazing how many things you can make from pumpkins ( apart from craving them) – desserts, soups, breads, appetizers, everything really. And considering the health benefits, they’re packed with vitamin A and vitamin C, they are just amazing!

If you’re interested I’ve done a round-up of my fav Pumpkin recipes hereΒ 15 Simple & Tasty Pumpkin Recipes

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake

Let’s focus on the Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake now..

The recipe uses a few basic ingredients – digestive biscuits and butter for the bottom layer, cream cheese and pumpkin and then salted caramel on top, simple as that! I used shop-bought caramel sauce that I mixed with sea salt for the lovely salty flavoured caramel. If you prefer, you can make yours at home. Make sure to refrigerate it for a few hours before serving! It’s a real treat! πŸ™‚

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake

This Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake is actually quite similar to theΒ Pumpkin Cheesecake

The second one is topped up with dark chocolate instead of the salted caramel and it’s still that moreish & irresistible. I honestly can’t say which one I prefer. I’d have both if I could! πŸ™‚

Now that Christmas is fast approaching(a bit over 10 weeks!) I’m thinking these Pumpkin cheesecakes would make the perfect treat for friends and family when visiting. Not only they’re super simple(no baking!) but their taste will surely please your loved ones! πŸ™‚

Tuna Pasta Casserole

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Tuna Pasta Casserole – very simple and yet delicious dish!

Tuna Pasta Casserole

It uses a few basic ingredients which I’m sure most of you can find in the kitchen cupboard – tinned tuna, pasta, cheese. There’s also peppers & mushrooms and that’s pretty much it. I used whole wheat pasta, in case you wonder and topped the whole dish with some homemade buttery breadcrumbs with more cheese, of course. If wished, add some more Parmesan cheese when serving. Who wouldn’t like some extra cheese? I know I wouldn’t mind at all. πŸ™‚

A quick tip – if you’d rather have an even creamier pasta dish go for double cream instead of the milk.

Tuna Pasta Casserole

I have seen the original recipe in one of my cooking books but I’ve changed a few things so it’s not a complete copycat. πŸ™‚ It’s more like a version of it, my version. πŸ™‚

This Pasta dish is just perfect as a dinner during the week. It literally takes minutes to cook, say about 20 in the oven and about 10 on the hob, so in roughly half an hour you’ve got rich, comforting and absolutely delicious Tuna Pasta Casserole.

Tuna Pasta Casserole

You might want to serve it with some extra greens to compensate the extra cheesy bit. I love having pasta with a side of fresh green salad with cherry tomato with a dash of extra virgin olive oil and seasoning. But this is me. My kids prefer steamed broccoli or green beans which I’m happy to make, of course. πŸ™‚

Here’s how to make the Tuna Pasta Casserole

Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole

Happy Friday guys! Today’s recipe is Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole – seriously delicious and comforting one pot meal, just add some freshly baked (lots of it!) bread to it and serve it hot for a tasty heart-warming meal! πŸ™‚

Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole

Honestly, I had about half of a bread loaf with this casserole and if I didn’t stop myself I would probably have had the other half too. πŸ™‚ This Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole is just screaming for a delicious bread to soak the tasty juices with. I don’t have such meals very often but now the weather has changed, I’m sure this will change too. I seriously need to improve my self-control skills and be able to stop after having a generous amount though. πŸ™‚ But try to look through my point of view – you get home after a long and exhausting day, haven’t had any food all day, froze yourself off at the park and finallyΒ  put the kids to bed and…see a pot with hot Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole and freshly baked bread! πŸ™‚ How could you not eat half a loaf of bread with it. πŸ™‚

Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole

Well, this was my story (or something like that) about what happened with the Pumpkin & Chicken casserole. Everyone really enjoyed it too! No leftovers and no bread left either. πŸ™‚

So what’s in the casserole – Pumpkin, chicken, celery, Chorizo or any other red sausage and spices. As you can see – really simple, just a few ingredients but the taste is incredible. I can honestly say this has become one of our family’s favourite ‘Winter Warmer’ recipes, for sure.

Turkey Breakfast Burgers

Happy Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Turkey Breakfast Burgers – succulent turkey patty , melted Emmental, ripe avocado, roasted red peppers and a fried egg! Mmmmm…It’s just a dream (or it was) πŸ™‚

Turkey Breakfast Burger

Seriously, the colder the weather gets, the higher the calories in my recipes are. πŸ™‚ Just joking, not necessarily. But what I mean is, we all get a craving for a nice warm soup/stew, succulent burger/roast or anything comforting that will warm you up. πŸ™‚ Now, that doesn’t mean we eat such comfort food every day, but the truth is I do make them much more often in the Fall/Winter period than Spring/Summer (I believe most of you do too). πŸ™‚

Turkey Breakfast Burger

Back to this Turkey Breakfast Burger…

I was actually thinking to add hash browns instead of the avocado and roasted pepper but then I wanted to serve it with sweet potato chips so I scratched that out. Also to put the scale a bit on the healthy side I thought It’d be nice to add some ripe avo and peppers. Do they count as your five-a-day? πŸ™‚ Probably not. πŸ™‚ However, they worked amazing with the fried egg and just completed that Breakfast Burger.

Turkey Breakfast Burger

Here’s how to make the Turkey Breakfast Burgers

Turkey Breakfast Burgers

The whole thing was very simple to make. I admit, this time I fried the burger patties, instead of grilling or baking them. The reason was that I was in a real hurry and of course, I was sure they’ll turn out very juicy and delicious (as they did). If you ask me though, If you’ve got the time, the best way is to grill them, and the tastiest! I’d definitely recommend that. But again, fried are more than delicious too. πŸ™‚

Falafel Stuffed Eggplant

Happy Friday guys! Today’s recipe is Falafel Stuffed Eggplant – or should I say Eggplant Salad. πŸ™‚ I seriously struggled with the title, but it is basically an eggplant stuffed with falafel, corn & peppers salad. Or is it? I hope you get my point. πŸ™‚

Falafel Stuffed Eggplant

Whatever you decide to call it, this Stuffed Eggplant is super delicious. I used tinned corn, roasted peppers and falafels which were leftovers from the day before. Eggplant and falafels taste really well together. πŸ™‚ The eggplant was hanging alone in the fridge for a few days now so I had to figure out a way/recipe to use it and not waste it (which I hate). That makes it a leftover too, right. It turns out this recipe is made of leftovers. πŸ™‚ So this is what I came up with – Falafel Stuffed Eggplant.

Falafel Stuffed Eggplant

All you have yo do is to bake the eggplant. I cooked it as it is, whole, for about 20 minutes and then simply stuffed it with the rest of the ingredients. To make the falafels, check the recipe hereΒ Easy Falafel Pita. They’re pretty simple too. The recipe is with pita bread, but these tasty balls can go on anything – salads, sandwiches, bread, pita, veggies.

Falafel Stuffed Eggplant

Here’s how to make the Falafel Stuffed Eggplant

  • 1tbsp olive oil

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the corn, roasted peppers, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and coriander. Mix well.

What is happening to the weather, seriously? I had to turn my lights on this morning and the rain was literally pouring when I had to head out. I know it’s probably normal, I simply can’t get over it and not complain about it. As if it’s gonna get better when complaining. At least we got some sunshine at noon ( for about 15 minutes). But let’s concentrate on the positive (meaning my recipe) stuff..

Succulent Cod Burger

Happy Sunday! Recipe of the day is Succulent Cod Burger – simple, tasty and so much better than the usual take away fish and chips!

Succulent Cod Burger

What a lovely weather we are having today! After a chilli and not so sunny week, finally some sunshine. Not that I’m outside enjoying it but I really love how light and sunny is in the house. And I’m just happy when the sun is shining, no matter in or outside. I only got one regret – why is the weekend always so short and not enough? Honestly, I need three days, at least. πŸ™‚ I bet many of you would agree with me. πŸ™‚

Succulent Cod Burger

Let’s focus on the recipe though..

Succulent Cod Burger

So about this Succulent Cod Burger, seriously, how could I haven’t made it before. It’s one of those simple recipes that you just discovered but seriously fallen in love with. Actually, the whole family did. What’s in there – cod fillets, which I gently cooked with some cornflour and herbs, melted Emmental cheese, mushy peas and tiny bitΒ spicy mayo (for the adults only). I used brioche buns which were just perfect for this burger and added some more sweetness to it. To serve, I made some sweet potato fries, which we all love in our family. They are ridiculously simple to make – simply cut the sweet potato in chips, season and bake in the oven with some oil. You can even add Parmesan cheese or any other toppings you fancy. Seriously guys, the whole combination was just spot on.

Succulent Cod Burger

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

Happy Thursday guys! Today’s recipe is Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta – comforting, simple and perfect for a busy weekday dinner!

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

Before my daughter started reception I thought I’d have a few spare hour a day. But it turned out I’m actually busier than I was when she was at nursery. I only got one and a half hour when the little one is napping. Then I have to wake her up and go collect her sister. So, yes, no time really but I try to work with whatever I have. πŸ™‚ This is why it’s essential to cook quick, easy but tasty food too, especially during the week when we’re rushing all the time. Not that the weekends are calmer. Both kids have activities on Saturday and Sunday, so yes, there’s always something. But at least during the weekend I can spend some more time in my tiny kitchen and test and create some yummy stuff. πŸ™‚

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

This Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta is one of these quick, easy and tasty recipes. I even used theΒ Roasted Kale & Feta Cheese DipΒ so it was even easier than I thought. All I had to do was to boil the pasta. The kids are not very fond of kale, but they thought this was just pesto and I didn’t bother to tell them that it actually was my kale dip that they didn’t really fancy. πŸ™‚

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

I should probably title this Leftover Pasta as it appears I’m using leftovers again – my Kale Dip and some Smoked Salmon but as you now know that let’s focus on the recipe..:-)

Turkey Meatballs Tacos

Happy Taco Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Turkey Meatballs Tacos – succulent turkey meatballs on flour tortillas with fresh guac and some other goodies too!

Turkey Meatballs Tacos

I must admit, I was a bit sceptical about this recipe (meatballs on a taco) but I was so wrong. It turned out delicious, quite meaty to be honest. πŸ™‚ But how could it not – juicy meatballs with lots of spices and sweet pepper, fresh guac, black beans & sour cream. You can even add some cheese, fresh jalapenos, coriander and whatnot. Why not build your own taco? Just don’t forget the main ingredient here – the Turkey Meatballs.

Turkey Meatballs Tacos

I made the meatballs quite small on purpose, after all I was gonna put them on a taco so I didn’t want any big ones. I used fresh coriander, red pepper, onion, garlic, cumin, black pepper, nutmeg and I think that’s about it. Oh, and one more thing, these are actually oven-baked. So no frying and you get a healthier option of meatballs. πŸ™‚

Turkey Meatballs Tacos

The kids only had the meatballs though. They’re still not used to have the whole packageΒ with the sauces and beans, so they basically had a plain taco – meatballs only which was fine with me, as long as they had their dinner. πŸ™‚

Turkey Meatballs Tacos

These Turkey Meatballs Tacos are super easy to make and that makes them perfect for a busy weekday dinner. You can even try to make the meatballs in advance and then just build your tacos from there. There are so many delicious options to choose from! πŸ™‚

Turkey Meatballs Tacos

Quick tip: For a juicier version of the meatballs I add some grated Parmesan cheese and for a cheesy version – grated Mozzarella. πŸ™‚

Turkey Meatballs Tacos

Here’s how to make the Turkey Meatballs Tacos
