Brisket & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Brisket & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich – so simple put together and perfect for your brunch!

Brisket & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich

Have you guys started planning Christmas yet? I’ve always liked to plan in advance, but now, especially with the kids, I start organising stuff quite early. I’m quite an organiser, let me tell you. ๐Ÿ˜„I have almost completed my Christmas gift list which is amazing (I usually waited a week before Christmas) so I can focus on other important stuff, or let’s admit it, the most important – Foodย ๐Ÿฝย What’s Christmas without some indulgent food. It’s all about get together and share some amazing food, isn’t it.ย ๐Ÿ™‚ย I have planned so many recipes that I’m sure I’m not gonna be able to make all of them.

Brisket & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich

OK, back to the recipe now..I added some fresh salad, tomato, mayo and of course, cheese. ๐Ÿ™‚ This simple sandwich turned into perfection. I easily had a coupe of these, they’re actually smaller than they look. ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, I added lots of hot sauce. Seriously, it was one of the best brunches ever. ๐Ÿ™‚

Brisket & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich

I love the fact that this is so quick and simple to make, the only cooking is actually scrambling the eggs but it takes a few minutes too. So, the Brisket & Eggs Sandwich is perfect for a lazy morning/brunch and not only. I honestly can have it for lunch & dinner too. Why not?ย ๐Ÿ™‚

The combination of sweet Brioche bun, mild cheese & salty brisket works so well. Just add some crunchy salad and enjoy! I didn’t make any sides for these sandwiches but chips will be great, or even sweet potatoes.

Here’s what you need for the Brisket & Eggs Sandwich

Simple Kung Pao Chicken

Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Simple Kung Pao Chicken – super quick and easy to make and so much better than your takeaway, I promise!

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.

Simple Kung Pao Chicken

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.

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s more like a version of it, my version. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s how to make the Tuna Pasta Casserole

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Turkey Meatballs Tacos

The kids only had the meatballs though. They’re still not used to have the whole packageย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps – juicy shredded pork, scrambled eggs, fresh spinach and some pots, all combined in a wholewheat seeded wrap! This is what I’m calling a breakfast for champions! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps

And you know what the best part is – this is all made from leftovers! Yep, that’s right. I had some pulled pork and roasted pots left that everyone refused to have (we all had a serious amount of the pork so I don’t blame theM ๐Ÿ™‚ ). So I stuffed some wholemeal wraps with it! I added some scrambled eggs, as I was making breakfast, fresh baby spinach, so they’re not that naughty (not that it helped) and of course, some sauces. The result was fantastic. We finished all of them in one go. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps

I can’t believe my just turned 4 baby is going to school tomorrow. When did she grow up? Someone pinch me! Have you guys got any tips/tricks for dealing with the first day of school stress (this is for me). As much excited my daughter is, I feel a bit nervous. I believe this is normal and I’m sure she’ll be fine. But so many feelings at the moment. I might be overreacting too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, I’ll update you how it goes. Back to my recipe now..

Here’s how to make the Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps

MM: Watermelon Salsa

Happy Meatless Monday guys! Today’s recipe is MM: Watermelon Salsa – simple, fresh and amazingly good with tortilla chips!

Watermelon Salsa

If you, like me like the combination of sweet and salty ingredients, you’re gonna love this sweet and juicy Watermelon Salsa. I was looking for a way to mix up my usual snack(talking about the tortilla chips, which I simply love, especially in front of the TV ๐Ÿ™‚ ). I honestly can have them with almost everything, seriously. ๐Ÿ™‚ But because it’s Summer, it’s hot and I was trying to stay on the healthy side I came up with this. Why not substitute the Tomatoes in the Pico de Gallo and use watermelon instead? Yes, why not :-). This is what actually this Salsa is, Pico de Gallo with watermelon instead of tomatoes. I kept it quite simple though and didn’t use lots of spices as I reckoned it wouldn’t work well. But of course, I added cilantro (coriander), lime juice, salt and pepper. The result was delicious and a whole pack of tortilla chips was ‘destroyed’ :-).

Watermelon Salsa

This Salsa is super delicious on its own. If you’re craving for a light and fruity Summer salad, this is it. I would probably add some Feta cheese, it tastes amazing with the watermelon! Whatever you choose, I promise this is simply delicious and guilt-free. And it only takes a few minutes! Also, it’ll be perfect as a starter when you have some friends around, im sure they’ll appreciate it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Leftover Rice Bites

Happy Sunday all! Recipe of the day is Leftover Rice Bites with Vegetables, Chicken & Cheese! Whatย anย amazing way to use up your leftover rice!

Leftover Rice Bites

As ย the title suggests these cute bites were made of some leftover rice and chicken. I only added some cheese and egg to hold them together. I cooked them in a muffin tray for about 20 minutes and they were all gone in 10. It’s funny how my kids refused to eat the rice left in the fridge but then they really enjoyed these bites. Bottom line is you need to be creative to feed your kids. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just joking! I don’t think I’m very creative. Anyway, this was a simple and delicious way to use up my leftover rice. You can make it from scratch too – all you need is some cooked rice with vegetables (I used carrots and peppers, thinly chopped), cheese and an egg.

Leftover Rice Bites

By the way, what’s your favourite Summer food/what is the recipe you love making during the hot and sunny days? I love making lots of fresh salads, but I’m trying to add something new every time, otherwise I’ll get bored, no matter how tasty the veggies are. Like, for example, last night I had a Caprese salad, but I use homemade zucchini pesto, which is also raw vegan and it tasted simply delicious. Comment below if you’re a salad person like me or prefer something else! ๐Ÿ™‚

Stuffed Mozzarella Salad

Happy Wednesday guys! Recipe of the day is Stuffed Mozzarella Salad – Summery, yummy and nutritious!

Stuffed Mozzarella Salad

It’s this time of the year when we are about to go on holiday and there’s so much stuff to organise. Plus, my daughter’s birthday party is just a day before we go, so that’s need to be planned too. Well, actually, I’m glad to say, most of the stuff is already taken care of. I just need to prepare some sandwiches and nibbles. But it’s been a hectic few weeks, really. And I had no idea it was so hard to get hold of a face painter and book a bouncy castle. Phewww. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stuffed Mozzarella Salad

Back to my recipe now…Mozzarella cheese is so versatile and is a must in my Summery salad recipes. I simply love it, the flavour is mild so it works amazing with veggies and fruit too. And yes, this is a stuffed mozzarella ball. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used my fingers to shape the mozzarella cheese and made a small well where I put some goodies.

Stuffed Mozzarella Salad

So I had this beautiful quinoa salad and I really wanted to spice things up, meaning make something different this time. ๐Ÿ™‚ I opened the fridge, saw the mozzarella cheese and a bowl with my homemade pesto and this is how the idea actually came to me. Why not stuff the mozzarella with the quinoa salad and use the pesto? Why not, indeed? ๐Ÿ™‚ I also added some steamed green beans. It all worked amazing. Not only the salad was super tasty but it was quite filling too. It can easily pass as a light main meal, especially in the Summer (well, probably depends how hungry you are). ๐Ÿ™‚

Beef & Pork Stuffed Zucchini

Happy Friday! Today’s recipe is Stuffed Zucchini – one of my favourite stuffed zucchini recipes – there’s pork and beef mince, spices, fresh herbs and of course, melted cheese. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stuffed Zucchini

I absolutely love zucchini in every way possible. For some reason, I do make lots of zucchini recipes this time of the year ( I guess because they’re in season, duh). Grilled, steamed, fried or even raw they are just delicious.

And in this particular recipe, they’re simply amazing. I stuffed them with beef and pork mince that was flavoured with some garlic, tomato and spices. Then added some cheese on top for a perfect finish. They tasted so fresh and yummy so no wonder they were gone in a few minutes.

Also, this recipe is perfect for when you’re quite busy and don’t have that much time to spend in the kitchen. In my case, it took me just a few minutes as I used the meat from a pasta recipe I had made the previous day. Basically, the only thing I did was to fill the zucchini with the mixture and cook them. How not to love recipes like these – they save you so much time but at the same time are so tasty! ๐Ÿ™‚

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Spinach & Quinoa Bites – vegetarian, healthy and simply delicious!

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

I finally managed to find the time for this post. It’s been a crazy morning (worst traffic ever, baby’s worst tantrum at the bank) but it all looks better now. Well, apart from the weather actually, but at least it’s not that cold. And let’s be positive and look on the bright side. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’ll be hot and sunny very soon or at least that’s what I’d like to believe.

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Let’s get to the recipe now…I made these bites last week and at first was a bit concerned whether my kids will eat them but it turned out they loved them. I don’t know if it’s because of the quinoa (they love it) or something else but the green colour was not questioned at all. And believe me, there was lots of spinach. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, I used some Parmesan cheese and no flour at all, which makes these green bites a great gluten free alternative.

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Here’s how to make the Spinach & Quinoa Bites

  • lime for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ยฐC.
  2. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Start making small bites/meatballs/patties.
  3. arrange them on a greased baking tray and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until ready.
  4. Serve with some lime wedge.

Did I mention these are oven-baked? No frying, simply cook them in the oven, so much easier and healthier. I served them with a lime wedge. I don’t know why (probably the matching colours) but I thought it might be tasty. And it worked really well. I added a splash of hot sauce on mine, how could I not. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Spinach & Quinoa Bites can be stored in the fridge for a few days so why not make a bigger batch and add them to your salads, sandwiches or just use them as a healthy and filling snack. They are super simple to make, use only a few ingredient but very tasty and satisfying.
