Review: Mr Burger Truck

Yesterday I knocked off work early and whilst on my way home happened to see on twitter that the Mr Burger food truck was only a few streets from my house. I had been meaning to check it out for ages and had been recently reminded of this fact when I read Libby’s review on her blog The Very Very Hungry Caterpillar so decided I couldn’t pass the opportunity up and detoured via the van on my way home to finally see what all the fuss was about!

Recipe: Lime Slice

A colleague at work brought in a giant bag of limes recently, so I took home as many as I could carry and then pondered over what to make with them. I decided I should return them full circle, so made this lime slice that I then took in to work to share with my colleagues. Circle of life complete! Don’t be fooled by the fact the limes are yellow on the outside (and therefore the zest is yellow!), the insides were nice and green and had that delicious lime tang. In saying that, this slice would work just as well with lemons, or a combination of the the two!

Recipe: Puffed Rice Bars

I am always looking for new ideas for snacks I can take with me to work to help fuel my day. I bought some puffed rice a few weeks back with no real idea what I was going to use it for, so decided to make some bars filled with all kinds of delicious extras. They turned out really well and I have been happily munching my way through them ever since! I used quite a few different ingredients in mine, but only because I already had them all in my cupboard – feel free to use whatever you have on hand!

Recipe: Zucchini & Pistachio Salad

The beauty of this salad is in its simplicity. It relies on the flavours of the fresh produce, brought together with a tangy lemon dressing. It looks much fancier than it really should given it takes mere minutes to pull together. I highly recommend it as a side at a BBQ, or as a quick and easy mid-week salad served with some protein of some kind (a poached egg works perfectly!). You can prepare it all ahead of time, just store the ribboned zucchini in a sealed container in the fridge and add the dressing when you are ready to serve. Easy as that!

Recipe: Easy Breakfast Beans

Usually when I have time to do a cooked breakfast I go straight for something eggy – baked, scrambled, poached you name it. Occasionally however I find myself hankering for something a little more hearty, and that’s where these super easy, super quick beans come in to play. The best part is they store well in the fridge or freezer so you can whip up a big batch and just reheat them during the week – perfect!
