Gari & Thyme Buttermilk Fried Chicken

I LOVE fried chicken – who doesn’t??? The salty, crispy skin coating that succulent, moist chicken.  HEAVEN! It may not be the right time of year to be making fried chicken but with the few and sporadic spring like days making an appearance here in the UK, we may as well just carry on hibernating and […]

Crispy Okra and Scotch Bonnet Houmous

I love a good snack, and it made sense to come up with a recipe using one of my favourite vegetables, teamed with a spicy dip since you can never go wrong with houmous (the latter being a new and improved recipe that featured in one of my first posts on the blog!).
