Butternut, Avocado and Feta Salad

My salads have always been rather dull; I always end up making greek salad with lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes and feta (it gets super boring after a while!). So after searching for some new inspirations/ recipes for salads, I came across a few Butternut salads which sounded very interesting and thought why not share my own…

White Chocolate & Mixed Berry Mini Pavlova

Despite what others may tell you Pavlova is surprisingly ALOT easier to make!. After watching numerous episodes of the British Bake Off I was rather skeptical on trying this dessert however, after making it I’ve realised the oven practically does all the work. Please bare in mind that Pavlova is not a last minute dessert but…

Mini Pecan Pies

Firstly I’d just like to say a delayed Happy New Year!! Hope this year brings more joys, memories and of course lots of food! I’d like to apologies for my lack of posts over the last couple of weeks. I had high intentions of posting more during the festive period but I just don’t know…

Seafood Paella

Theres just something about Spanish culture that you just can’t help yourself loving. From cultural music and dances such as Salsa and Tango to the beautiful architectures of Spanish villas right down to cultural food; and Paella definitely fits the bill.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

I thought it would be rather fitting to bake some red velvets today considering…

Enchilada Pasta

Over the past week I’ve been down with the flu so I haven’t been able to make anything too extravagant, however I did manage to whip up some Enchilada Pasta. This dish is really easy to make and gives a nice twist to the popular Mexican dish.

Middle Eastern Shakshouka

Struggling for Sunday brunch ideas? Don’t worry I got you sorted (you can thank me later). Shakshouka (aka masala eggs) is a Middle Eastern/North African dish particularly of Moroccan and Tunisian origin. It consists of poached like eggs embedded in a sauce of tomatoes, onions, chillies and other vegetables. My mum has been making this…

Lotus Cheesecake

“Caramelised biscoff cheesecake topped with toffee popcorn, crushed biscuit and pecan nuts, finished with a drizzle of caramelised sauce.” For those that don’t know Lotus spread is actually just caramelised biscoff. I actually did not know Lotus existed until my family from South Africa kept asking where to get bottles of it from in London. The…

#1 Intro.

Hi and welcome to my food blog! My name is Zafirah and I’m a current university student. I’ve been wanting to start a blog since the first day of uni but I’ve always been reluctant and skeptical on what it should be about. Fast forward three years and here I am finally deciding on a…
