I cook almost every single day. It’s something I really enjoy, and I always try and do something different. However recently I’ve noticed I’ve been a bit of a rut. Always cooking the same things week in, week out so I dug out the recipe books and started looking for inspiration. Oddly this one wasn’t from a recipe book but actually on the side of some wild rice I had in the cupboard. We are big fans of curry, especially thai curry so I just had to try this. It…

I love watching films and Christmas is the perfect excuse for doing just that. Add in a some chocolates, a blanket/warm fire and it’s the perfect night in.
