Jamie Oliver's Chicken Fajitas.

If there's one thing I can't resist that is Mexican food. I don't know how different 'our' Mexican food is to true authentic type Mexican food, but you really can't go past a good taco, burrito or fajita in my opinion!
I seem to have a love affair with all foods spicy and hot as well so naturally I always 'accidentally' pour in a little too much chilli when cooking such foods.

Jai and I originally cooked this dish in our little flat in Liverpool, UK as we were working our way through Jamie Olivers Recipes in the Ministry of Food book that my lovely Sister bought us as a moving house/ county present.
We liked it so much that we've used this recipe every single time we've wanted to cook fajitas since.

I hope you enjoy just as much as we do :)

Semmelklöße (German Bread Dumplings).

So last year my boyfriend Jai and I decided to make a list of things we wanted to do, no matter how small or big they were, we put them on the list. So right under Jai's wish of wanting to go on an overseas holiday, he also had 'Make German Bread Dumplings'.
I'd never heard of them before but I guess they appealed to him as we have indeed traveled to Germany as well as many other European countries.

He sent me a link to a recipe which you can find HERE and they looked pretty interesting, so I decided the next time we were together cooking, that we would make them seeing as though I had all the ingredients already in the pantry.

I wanted to do a little bit of research as I always do, so I found out that these German Bread Dumplings are also known as 'Semmelklöße' and are in fact from Bavaria. You can serve them with just about anything, whether it be a traditional stew or soup, or even served with a pork chop and apple sauce.

Update :)

So I've been totally slack at looking at everyone's delicious posts and making posts of my own, for a good few months now!
I haven't had quite as much spare time on my hands since moving house and getting a new job to post everything I've been cooking.
Despite the lack of time, I've been making more of an effort than ever before to have home cooked meals at least 5 times a week. Having said that I do have a frozen meal in the oven right now.... I'll forgive myself though as it is currently bucketing down rain here in Melbourne and I don't feel like popping down to the shops!
