The latest recipes I've been whipping up​

Updated: Aug 10, 2019

There is something special about cooking a meal you've spent time putting together. I've always been a foodie person, and enjoyed being in the kitchen. Now that doesn't mean I was always great in the kitchen. Over time I have learned a wide spread of recipes that have allowed me to be comfortable in the kitchen that I want to share with you!

Most recipes I like to try are easy simple ones. Learning easier recipes have helped me see what spices go with what, multitask, and gives me a since of pleasure knowing I cooked something so delicious.

I hope you try one of these recipes and share them with others.

Spanish Tuna Pie from El Mundo Eats

First up we have Spanish Tuna Pie by El Mundo Eats or also known as, empanada de Atún.

I was inspired to try this recipe myself, because I lived in Gran Canaria, Las Palmas, Spain for about 5 months. Any time I went to the grocery store I was looking for empanadas. Even going to friends/teammates houses where their mothers made it fresh. It was simply to die for. So on an impulse I tried it, and It turned out amazing!

The key component is the oil! Don't forget the oil!

Empanadas can be made with any meat inside. I prefer tuna, but many like beef inside as well.

There's something about the crunchy flavourful crust complementing the mixture inside with the peppers and onions. It's the perfect component when wanting something different.

Creamy Tuscan Spaghetti with Jumbo Scallops by ManTitlement

This recipe is filled with flavour. It has sun dried tomatoes, wine, fresh spinach, and seared scallops. This recipe is a extremely simple. Plus ManTitlement gives you step by step instructions. You'd have to try and mess this one up. A seafood dish always is a switch up. HOWEVER when you add scallops it makes it that much more interesting.

One thing I loved about this recipe is that after making it, I felt like I was at the restaurant. It was THAT good!

The pasta to sauce ratio is perfect, so don't worry about if you think it looks like too much or if you need to add. Trust the recipe.

You won't regret it.

Italian Orzo Spinach Soup by Gimme Some Oven

The weather is just starting to feel like Spring in London, but this winter was a cold one. What better way to warm yourself up than with some soup?

This soup is the perfect combination of Spinach, Orzo, and veggies.

The key to this dish is the parmesan. Loads and loads of parmesan.

You'll love this and it makes a lot to have left overs, and like most dishes it's even better the next day. This one pot dish takes no longer than 30 minutes and it's great for a weekday meal.

Oh! Can't forget, I added some garlic bread to dip this in as well. Absolutely delicious!

Now this last dish is one of my ultimate favourites! Not only is it vegan, but it's super easy to make!

Caribbean Feast by Avant-Garde Vegan

Rice and peas, plantains, jerk jackfruit, and chilli mango salsa.

This recipe is so many flavours in one. Plus it's fun to make. Cooking the plantains, while the jackfruit simmers, fills the house with a wonderful aroma.

Avant-Garde breaks this recipe down perfectly in his YouTube video. You won't miss a step.

Not only is this a great meal on it's own. I love converting this meal into Jackfruit tacos and making guacamole to go with it as well. Give it a try. Again, you won't regret it!

All of these recipes made me venture out of my comfort zone and try something new. I hope you can take from this trying new recipes that not only look good, but taste great as well. From Spanish cuisines to Italian to Caribbean. gives you a diverse palette for your tastebuds and they will love you for it.

Enjoy! Comment below if you try any of these.
