This is a lovely quick recipe for a mid week snack or starter.
To make the nachos slice up wholemeal tortillas or wrap like you would slice a pizza and brush with a little oil and bake in the oven at 180c for about 10 minutes, but keep watch as they catch quickly.
For the salsa I chop lots of tomatoes and put in a bowl mix in a little (or a lot) of diced red onion, plenty of vinegar, teaspoon of tomato ketchup, half a teaspoon of tomato puree, dried coriander, fresh as well if you have it, salt, pepper, paprika to your taste. Mix it up and your ready to go… enjoy!
I love the smell of fresh basil, it’s always lovely having it on set when I’m shooting!

52 Weekends No.21 – T-Shirt Yarn Macrame. I’ve been loving the recent trend of hanging house plants and I’m currently refurbing our bathroom with a tropical theme (or Vietnam Flashback as my husband has affectionally named the style) and my plan is to fill it with hanging plants. So this weekend I thought I would try my hand at Macrame for the first time, using t-shirt yarn (as it’s cheap. easy to make and lovely to work with) I had enough left over so I made a mini plant pot holder too. Give it a go… great sense of achievement.
Today is Chinese New Year! I’ve been experimenting with making my own spring rolls and came up with this simple recipe.
Stir fry a bag of prepared stir fry vegetable mix with a sachet of Oyster sauce (or your favourite stir fry sauce) then spoon a portion of the mix onto one end of one sheet of filo pasty (the has been cut in half) and roll the veg up tucking in the ends half way through the rolling. Brush the end down with melted butter. Repeat with the rest of the mix, it should make about 6 medium sized spring rolls. Place them all on greaseproof paper on a baking tray, brush the tops with melted butter and bake at 180c for 20 mins. Serve with sweet chilli dipping sauce… yum!
It’s here… Pancake day… at last, yay! I’m a fan of a classic lemon and sugar, whatever your preferred topping have a have a very happy Pancake Day.
Love is in the air this weekend as Valentines Day approaches, which makes it the perfect weekend to make a Valentines Keepsake for this weeks 52 Weekends Project.
Just before Christmas my wonderful Husband bought me a beautiful bunch of flowers to cheer me up, in the bunch was some Gypsophila sprayed with gold, it was so lovely I decided to pressed it. I knew it would look great framed in my cute little Oliver Bonas kiko frame along with this beautiful quote ‘If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.’ The perfect valentines gift.
Happy NON FOOD FRIDAY… not long until publication day for Lagom-Style Accessories by Debbie Von Grabler-Crozier. I loved styling and shooting this book so much, cannot wait to see it in print. Pre-order is currently available from Search Press.
I’ve not posted much the last couple of weeks as I’ve been on holiday. Back to work today and catching up… noticed I’ve missed a couple of National days whilst I’ve been away, one of which was National Croissant Day, so I’m indulging in that today.
