Recipe: Warm Cajun Chicken & Avocado Salad

Cajun chicken and avocado salad

Firstly I must apologise for my absence from the blog. Life seems to get in the way at times. Whilst I enjoy blogging, I have to keep telling myself that is a hobby and that my real life and career must come first – I will try and post new recipes as and when I can but I feel I must put it out there that I may be a little quieter than normal the next coming months.

Anyway, now that’s over with I can tell you why I am posting a recipe for a salad. Yes a salad. On my blog. That is usually filled with naughty, delicious, chocolate calorie filled treats. In September I am going on holiday to America for three weeks and in preparation for the stone I am most likely going to put on in my time out there, the detox has started early.

Plus its summer, and salads are all the rage is summer – right?

If you’re after a quick, delicious dinner that is on your plate in 15 minutes then this is for you. Even Chris was a fan and he’s really not in to salads.

Recipe: Lemon, Strawberry & White Chocolate Bundt Cake

Lemon Strawberry White Chocolate Bundt Cake

When I developed this recipe and photographed it the weather was glorious! The sun was shining brightly, it was warm and it was finally starting to feel like Spring. However, as I type this now it is cloudy, a bit cold and looks like it is going to rain.

Once the sun starts shining again, this beautiful bundt cake recipe would be a wonderful dessert for garden parties, BBQs, or a cheeky Sunday afternoon tea and slice of cake break.
