Fun with food and the occasional healthy recipe for baby and mum


16 Sep, 2014

The weather is definitely on turn…Reuben and I went for a walk in the dunes this morning and for all my lamenting of the end of summer, I’ll be honest, it was lovely to get wrapped up a bit and feel the chill in the air. And the other wonderful thing about Autumn other than layering? Yummy, warming Autumnal food! Today I’m going to share with you a gorgeous recipe that is not only healthy but should really warm even the coldest of cockles, my Warming Fish Stew…

Warming Fish Stew – Serves 2 – 3

The exciting thing about this recipe for me is the addition of potatoes. During the week I tend to avoid as many carbs as possible, especially at dinner time, but it’s quite frankly a miserable existence. So I’ve decided to try a new approach to eating…eating what I fancy but, crucially, stopping eating when I’m full. Novel, I know, but it’s actually harder than you think! Anyway, so far so good.

This recipe is inspired by a recipe in the Clean and Lean Cookbook by James Duigan.

Bring out the Brazilian food!!!

I’m afraid I’m not a massive fan of football, yes the world cup is here but for me it just means Mike is going to be a bit busier over the coming month. Bah humbug, etc!

However, what I am interested in is food. So, while everyone else might be enjoying watching grown men kick a ball, I will be making Brazilian food. I’ve been populating my “World cup in Brazil” pinterest board with recipes of the food and drink variety that I’m looking forward to trying.

When I think of Brazilian food, I think MEAT. There is a lovely restaurant in Newcastle called Escobar’s and they come around with skewer after skewer of meat. Everything you can think of from steak to sausage to chicken to heart, eek. Not been brave enough to try that but apparently it is quite traditional. Having said that (about the meat), all the recipes that have caught my eye have been fish dishes that are packed with lime juice and coriander. So on Tuesday Reuben and I took a trip to the North Shields’ Fish Quay to get us some fresh goodies!

The recipe I’ve tried and will share today a Brazilian Fish Stew, made with Black Cod. I made it for Mike’s Birthday and he was aaaall over it! It was mega easy…so instructions to follow.

As an aside, I’ve already had a disaster…last night’s baby octopus salad (made with Baby Squid as the Fish Quay didn’t have any octopus) was a complete let down. It was entirely my fault…if you’re going to cook Squid, you need to cook it like this. What we had resembled something from I’m a Celebrity. A hideous mix of Kangaroo penis and anus.

Onwards with the good stuff! To celebrate the start of the World Cup, why not give this Brazilian Fish Stew a go?! (more…)
