Breakfast Cups

Chicken and Quinoa Salad with Tomato Jam

I’m sorry I know its a been a long while since I last posted, but I really just haven’t had the time or the motivation. Sorry! Zaatar is something I absolutely love. You don’t get it very easily in India, and the flavours are quite different. I have a friend who went to Dubai last…

This involved not just cheese and crackers, but several other elements as well. I started off with three different…

Sandwiches

A sandwich is a done thing for a picnic. We stuck to two simple sandwiches a Chicken with Marinara Sauce and a Tomato and Cheese one. I had initially planned to do a pesto one however one of the salads had a pesto in it, so I thought why not change it up. Again, I…

Spicy Thai Noodles
