Chicken Curry & Rice


Everyone is so busy these days! They all want things to be fast be it quick service, quick money, quick responses, quick delivery and most unfortunately (most times) quick or fast food! The number of people cooking food at home, taking their time and giving the food love, affection and care has reduced drastically over the years. Sure, there are quick home recipes and foods that can be made, many of them on my blog as well. However, sometimes, the day calls for a slow cooked ‘fall off the bone’ chicken curry made with fresh spices and ingredients and matched with steaming hot white rice. At the end of the day, the flavor you will get from slow cooking and the smile on your loved ones faces, will be worth the time and effort put into the dish.

Hubby’s favourites; beef, beer & bacon


My husband is a man of simple pleasures. Some of his favourite flavours are beer, beef and bacon, so I just had to try and put them together. I’d had success a few years ago with my Heineken and honey lamb shanks that he loves, so here is my next beer recipe! The kids liked it too, and I particularly like the gorgeous flavour of the leek and the lovely aroma of this dish. I hope you like it!
