Spiced Chicken Dumpling Soup

I can't lay claim to this recipe, I can however, tell you that its mega tasty and you should try this one at home. Taken from the Saturday Kitchen Cooking Bible, its quite a fiddly recipe for something that looks very simple but the flavours are fresh and the dish is surprisingly filling. Warning note - there is lots of washing up so rope in a friend to help!

Crab ravioli with avocado, chilli & tomato

This is something I've posted to my Gingey Bites facebook page previously and having made & loved it a second time last week, I decided it deserved a spot on the blog. Beautiful, simple and really quick to throw together, this is a perfect supper for busy nights plus if you're cooking for someone else, it also looks pretty impressive. 

I picked up a load of Dell'Ugo filled pastas on my first (and frankly mind blowing) trip to Costco last month, recognising the brand from a local deli. Although the pasta is fresh, it freezes really well and so, as a single lady, these are perfect for portion control AND meal planning. This particular one - the crab & crayfish ravioli is superb - packed full of crayfish tails and crab meat and really tasty.

Review: Sat Bains, Nottingham

I officially have the BEST friends in the world. For my 30th back in November, I was treated by two of my friends to dinner at the two Michelin starred Sat Bains! Finally, last weekend after what seemed like forever, the day finally rolled around and we headed over to Nottingham full of excitement for what was bound to be an amazing evening!

Review: Raja Monkey, Hall Green, Birmingham

As you know, I'm a big curry fan. I also love street food so my recent visit to Raja Monkey (where they serve authentic Indian street food) was always going to be the highlight of my week! As part of the Lasan group I knew the food would be great so with one of my best mates in tow (and a new face to gingey bites) I headed over there to stuff my face.

Although the frontage looked good, the restaurant from the outside is very unassuming - perhaps just another curry house along a row of shops in the Birmingham suburb of Hall Green. Once we walked in, we were greeted by a warm space full of terracotta shades, an open kitchen full of busy chefs, soft lighting and most importantly, smiling staff.

This recipe comes from my good friend (& excellent freelance photographer) Anna. I would strongly recommend you check out her instagram to perve over all her lovely pictures but please do come back to my blog and finish reading this post!
