Crochet Jewelry

with one french knit thrown in, in the pictures above…. Once upon a time i spent hours drawing dresses, shoes, earrings and necklaces as if i was some sort of fashion designer, it was fun, and it was doodling but i never thought it would take me anywhere, and it may not ever, but that…

My story of knitting

Back in April I decided I needed an extra hobby, apart from cooking that would help me explore my own creativity, foster it and help it grow without the effect on other peoples, or my own, health or waistline. I’m not saying that baking or cooking isn’t fun or that its bad, and i certainly…

Ammy cooks and MAKES

If you’re an avid follower, which at this stage i don’t think i have many of, or if you have recently stumbled onto my page after a while of not seeing it, you’ll notice I’ve made some changes. Cooking is a big part of my life and continues to be but as i grow as…

Curry Puff Rolls

These have been an absolute hit the two times I’ve made them for work. They are quite easy to make, and filling is just as good in a toasted sandwich as it is inside puff pastry. It’s a simple modified Indian recipe, normally you’d put this kind of dry curry inside a dosa or a…

Sweet and Savoury Filled Soda Water Scones

It definitely has been a while, and this is definitely not the most healthy recipe, but hey, it was fun to make and quite delicious. Why did i use soda water? Main reason – i wanted to make my scones easy to make, but not full of the sugar that lemonade inevitably contains. Why filled?…

Goodbye 2017

2017 was a crazy year for me, but this blog was heaven for a lot of it, circumstances changed and i lost a lot of inspiration, but a trip home for the holidays and a renewed belief in myself have once again inspired me to start posting, when i can, and i promise i will….

Mini Orange and Dark Choc Cheesecake

Cheesecake, notoriously delicious and also hard to make vegetarian without the right ingredients. Gelatine is derived from collagen obtained from various animal body parts, usually from cows. So this recipe calls for the use of Agar, a similar setting agent derived from plant matter commonly used in a lot of Asian cooking, you can find…

Easy Healthy Appetisers

Appetisers are great, but can often be unhealthy and dips can often be overpriced for the amount you pay at the supermarkets. Knowing this and the fact that you most likely have the makings of a good dip in the fridge and pantry with the addition of a very quick and cheap trip to the…

My Morning Drink

I’m sure many of you have heard of various things people drink in the mornings which are supposed to be good for you in many different ways. They all contain similar ingredients and in general have some health. Overall, I think what my tea does for me is help hydrate me first thing in the…
