Recipe: Easy Coconut & Lime Cupcakes

Coconut and Lime Cupcake Recipe

Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you have an ingredient to use, and you're not quite sure how to use it, or even how you ended up having it in the first place. This was the dilemma I faced when Chris came home with a whole fresh coconut last week. Something to do with a long running joke with the guys at work. I wasn't listening to the details, I was staring at a coconut in my fruit bowl!

After lots of Googling on how to even get inside the coconut, I decided to give it a go on Saturday afternoon. Is it worth it? Absolutely not, I do not recommend that anyone buys a fresh whole coconut for this recipe, stick with the pre-desiccated coconut. However, I was quite proud that I managed to hack into it without so much as a scratch on me, I'm quite accident prone so this was a major achievement. Especially when I had to get a screwdriver and a hammer out of the shed to get into it!

Regards Edgbaston, Birmingham

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll already know how much I love curry. This love of curry has become stronger as I have lived in Birmingham and I’m always finding new curry houses and restaurants to try.

Regards is situated in Edgbaston, just outside Birmingham city centre, and markets itself as a luxury Asian cuisine restaurant.

On entry, we were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The restaurant has just been refurbished so the d├ęcor was nice, and given it was a Thursday evening the atmosphere was great with the restaurant being about a third full.

There’s a new breakfast & lunch spot that’s opened up in Great Western Arcade. Welcome to Birmingham, Wrap Lab! A new, healthier way to eat this wrap shop has been opened a couple of months and last week I headed down there with some other Birmingham bloggers to see what it was all about.

Ran by the lovely Tiwana family: three health-conscious foodies who have unwrapped the secret to the ultimate healthy lunchtime saviour. There is over 120 combinations you can have in Wrap Lab in forms of wraps and salads!
