Syrian Chicken with Saffron, Ginger And Lemon

I can almost smell the fragrance of the spices.

Sharing The Food We Love


The smell of saffron has a very special place in my heart.  The memories evoked not only from the original source of my childhood, but the consequential moments along the way working in kitchens, baking in my own kitchen and tasting foods whilst travelling have only served to increase the significance of this exclusive and distinct spice.

When I saw this recipe in Karen Martini’s Cooking At Home there was no way I wasn’t giving it a try.  I’ll be honest and say the ingredient list looked a little overwhelming in its length but having spent time recently making curries where the first 15 ingredients are only the spices I know that it’s not always a bad thing to have this many ingredients, often it just adds to the deliciousness.


Crazy as it sounds this is actually a very quick dish to create and is well suited to the premise…

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, The Perfect Hors D’ouvres For Any Party!

Gluten Free Living by Pepperchick


Not everyone is a fan of chicken wings.  Most of my family members are, frankly, grossed out by the bones, and having to pick around the bits that are “not quite meat”.  Boneless wings are great, but trying to find ones that are gluten free is difficult, and purchasing pieces of chicken breast, cutting, breading, and cooking them can be a real pain.

The solution to this dilemma is this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs.  One recipe makes over 60 bite sized meatballs, which are  plenty for a crowd.  If your crowd is bigger… double or triple the recipe. 

These little meatballs are slightly spicy on their own, and have crunchy little bits of celery peeking out, not to mention plenty of buttery buffalo sauce.  Just serve a nice gluten free Blue Cheese Dressing and some celery sticks along side, and watch them disappear!
