Brunch without a shadow of doubt has to be one of my most favourite things about the weekend. Actually no, not just the weekend but one of my most favourite things about life in general. If I were to get up at 6am on a Tuesday morning and cook myself a steak for breakfast then I would most definitely be judged. People would think I was crazy, maybe a pig even. Not that I’m overly bothered about peoples opinions on my eating habits, but I guess eating steak at 6am isn’t exactly “normal”. Fast forward to the weekend and add 5 hours on to that clock and eating a steak in the morning becomes perfectly acceptable. Brunch is never a judgemental occasion which is why I absolutely love it!
It’s almost the start of a new year. As of tomorrow 2014 will be the past and we would have all stepped foot into 2015… And with that we will most probably be joined by some horrendous hangovers! To thank you all for reading for the past year I thought it was only right that my last recipe of 2014 should really show my appreciation for your loyalty. Therefore I give to you the best gift anyone could ever want for the beginning of 2015, or any year in fact… The best hangover cure out there, my Ultimate Breakfast Bake!
Chickpeas really are a fantastically versatile ingredient. I use chickpeas a fair amount, mainly in currys and stews and sometimes when attempting hummus, although I just cannot get that recipe right. It’s one I’m working on though. Despite knowing that chickpeas are a great ingredient, it wasn’t until today that I really came to appreciate the vast versatility of the humble chickpea.
Perfect for a weekend brunch, a weekday lunch or an end of night snack, these quesadillas are just a winner all round. If you have never tried quesadillas before then now’s your chance. They really are so easy and quick to make and more importantly, so tasty to eat! The two main ingredients required for any quesadilla are soft flour or corn tortillas and some good cheese. The rest is up to you.
Breakfast. The most important meal of the day, yet so many of us skip it. We replace our cereal with a strong cup of coffee in the hope that that’s what we need to be able to function. We’re all guilty of it from time to time, especially when we want that extra bit of beauty sleep. The truth is though, eating a well balanced breakfast is far more likely to get us through the day than that extra half an hour in bed and a quick cup of coffee. You wouldn’t skip dinner and go to bed hungry, so why skip breakfast and go into your day hungry? Yet 57% us do this every day in the UK! That’s a lot.
