I am a secret stalker of food blogs. I live vicariously through other people's amazing recipes, drooling over their amazing gastro-creations, whilst eating my wheat-free rice crackers & peanut butter (*sad face*).
One of my absolute favourite blogs is written by Amy Jones at She Cooks, She Eats. Amy is an 'amateur' cook, specialising in customising recipes so they are lean; perfect for those of us on the Super Fit Sunday journey! Until today, I have just been gleaning little hints & tips from her blog but hadn't actually cooked a full recipe. But this Cauliflower Fritters recipe caught my eye today & since I was at home, thought I'd spend my evening cooking for my lovely husband (in the vain hope he'd spot how amazing it is to come home to a lovely home cooked meal & 'let me' quit work!)
My very first fritter batch, browning away nicely! (I'd actually bought enough for 2 lots, as I fully expected for it to go wrong!).
My warm pepper relish! This made the house smell AMAZING! I'd recommend having it simmering away if you are trying to sell your house!!
Knowing husband would not appreciate a full veggie meal, I whizzed up some of Amy's chicken skewers & salad, served with the pepper relish & fritters. How good does this look?!!
The fritters tasted absolute gorgeous - I love feta cheese & the flavour is so mild once they are cooked. The pepper relish was sticky, sweet & had a spicy little kick from the chilli peppers. Yum!!
What Friday night dinner would be complete without a sweet little treat? Amy's Super Speedy Eton Mess went down a treat, was quick, easy & fairly guilt free thanks to the Activia yoghurt instead of the double cream.
So all in all, a success!! Husband was delighted and we both had very full tummies! The fritter recipe made 12 & I only managed 2. There is a little tub of relish left over in the fridge too, for eating tomorrow!
Amy's recipes are so easy to follow & her writing style makes cooking whilst reading fun & interesting. I am an appalling, appalling cook, but I am fabulous at following instructions (ask anyone who knows me & they'll tell you my number 1 skill is assembling Ikea furniture). The fact I managed to pull this off with no disasters at all is testament!
