cinnamon-glazed-sweet-potato-wedges

I must admit I've had a bit of a struggle the last few days in trying to decide what recipe to feature this week on the blog.

egg-salmon-avocado-breakfast

black-eyed-peas-chickpea-curry-recipe

This black eyed bean and chickpea curry is my ultimate curry in a hurry, and features mainly on those week nights that I have 30 - 35 minutes to fix a meal. This really is another staple dish in my home that is packed with protein, nutrients and oodles of aromatic flavour....
