Foodie Friday - Food Review Of The Month

Because of the overload of juicing posts I haven't done a foodie friday post for a few weeks now, so I thought I'd do one today, basically summing up some of the things that I've eaten over the last month :).
I thought I'd start the month the way that I started the year off on New Years Eve with some Mexican themed foods, a dish of nachos with home made salsa and lots of cheese


and some of my favourite Mexican cornbread (check out my favourite recipe here)


At the start of the month I also had the opportunity to try out the amazing M&S Rhubarb and Custard Sparkling Drink. I'd heard so much on twitter about this and I eventually managed to pick up a bottle of this before Christmas. It tastes amazing and exactly like the sweeties :)


I also made this pretty epic cheesecake, from the queen that is Nigella and her Italian style recipe book, Nigellissima.



It's basically a Ferrero Rocher in a cheese cake, I used gluten free digestives and hazelnuts for the base, and the filling is made from cream cheese and nutella, topped with toasted hazelnuts - this amazing and sooooo easy to make.



After this high calorie start I started my Juice Detox - which meant a week of water, fresh fruit and vegetable juices, and fresh tea infusions, here are a selection of my "meals"



and here are some of my favourite infusions, fresh lemon and lime - yum!


I've tried to be good for the rest of the month, but thanks to the weather I've needed comfort foods and I've eaten a lot of soups, casseroles and salads, including this yummy Greek style salad,



this Broccoli, Curly Kale and Stiliton Soup,


home made vegetable and soy chunk curry,


and home made veggie sausage casserole and mash - This was one of  my childhood favourites and it tastes just as a nice with vegetarian sausages.


and finally some pesto pasta, just some gluten free pasta spirals mixed togther with some sweetcorn, spring onion, olives, cheese and of course pesto yum!


and a cheeky vodka and orange juice - whoops!


Have you eaten anything interesting or particularly yummy this month? Let me know in the comments x

  1. Mmm your month of food looks amazing! That Nutella Cheesecake! :O Your nachos are calling to me too, and that cornbread.
    Any chance of the sausage casserole recipe? I'm on the lookout for some new recipes to try but as well as being a vegetarian I'm very very fussy so it's harder than it might seem!

  2. The M&S drink is to die for. I freeze it and make my own ice lollipops in the Summer :)
