Aubergine Bolognese

Aubergine bolognese is another one of my favourite recipes for the cold autumn and winter nights. I picked up the recipe idea from an Italian restaurant. Their “Pasta Norma” had a few aubergines and tomatoes tossed in spaghetti. I made it a bit heartier, and turned it into a bolognese-style sauce. This is super simple…

The Gardening Experiment

As I hit my fourth month of pregnancy in April, I felt that it was time to get in touch with nature, play the good Earth Mama and get some of my own, tasty, non-toxic veggies growing.

Stuffed Courgettes

Steamed Salmon and Asparagus with Spinach Stir Fry

I like to cook fish in a steamer. Not only can you cook without fat, but the steamer keeps all the fishy smells inside, so that your kitchen doesn’t smell like a chip shop for the next few days. Also, steaming locks all the flavors in, so the fish is really tasty with hardly any…
