November’s Food Videos

I’m so thrilled with the response so far to my food videos on Instagram. It’s so brilliant to see people recreating them, and I can’t even begin to explain how much I’m enjoying putting them together. Below are a few of the ones so far from this month…

The Little Green Spoon Pancakes

Carbonara

See a similar recipe here, everything that I use, and my method are in the video and in the caption below it. I prefer using a whole egg per person instead of just the yolk, I find it much lighter.

 

Curry Style Noodles

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 sheet of noodles

  • Add the honey and lime juice
  • Fry for a minute or two (medium heat)
