Chocolate and Orange Cake

Chocolate Orange Cake

There’s nothing quite like cake is there? Problem is, cake is pretty bad for you, this cake changes all that… it’s even worse! It was borne of an evening at a friend’s house at which there was a fabulous chocolate orange cake of which I had only one slice, so I made another. It is a little different though because this recipe uses oil instead of butter/stork which makes the batter extra moist, at the cost of at least one artery per slice.

Hummus

Hummus Recipe (1)

By far and away my favourite food to eat, for lunch at least, is hummus. It is such a versatile food which can be used both as a filling or as a dip, and flavoured with no end of different spices and herbs. This hummus recipe may contain rather a lot of olive oil, but it’s still a great healthy snack and a fantastic way of taking on protein.

Tortilla (Spanish Omelette)

I’ve been wanting to bring you readers this dish for a while now, however my girlfriend decided that each time we had it planned she didn’t like omelette, despite the fact she did this at least twice. Also, my mum hates eggs, yet she eats omelette and quiche, what’s with that? Bloody women. Sorry that slipped out, don’t castigate me.

What you get with this meal is an intensely rich and thick sauce which is both supremely tasty and very filling whilst being particularly cheap to produce, which I guess was the point of such a dish in the first place.

Stir-Fry Pork

Stir Fry Pork

The problem with coming home for the holiday is that there’s always so much bread, and bread makes you fat quickly, or in ┬ámy case… fatter. So I thought I’d throw together something healthy, using many of the left-overs in the house while I was at it. Indeed, left-over pork is ideal for this dish as it makes it even more juicy and means it doesn’t require much cooking at all. This dish is also perfect summer food and if you work out the right balance of flavours, as I’m trying to help you do, it will be very fresh and delicious, the only problem being that it could prove easily overpowered
