Charlottenburg Chicken Salad

Here’s Emmie’s super simple and healthy, chicken salad.

I’ve named this salad after Charlottenburg, the suburb I lived in while I was abroad in Berlin for 16 months. I made this salad for my boyfriend and I countless times – knowing it was nutritious and flavourful, and not to mention easy to make after a days work.

Without further ado, let’s get cooking!

Egg-Free, Gluten-Free Pork Rissoles & Veg

Try my hearty, egg-free, gluten-free pork rissoles and colourful vegetables for dinner tonight! Ideal for those following a gluten-free or egg-free diet.

As a child, I remember watching my mum and dad making rissoles with bread crumbs or tiny pieces of fresh bread. This helps the rissole stay together (along with the one or two eggs added to the mixture) so when I first moved out of home, this is how I made mine too.

Low-fat White Choc & Matcha Cheesecake

When we think of cheesecake we usually imagine a heavy, creamy white and very sweet dessert. I have something else for you. Let me introduce my low-fat white chocolate and Bluebird TeacoΒ “Super Matcha” tea cheesecake! The secret to keeping this a perfect balance of low-fat and full flavour is quark. If you don’t have quark in your country, you can use cottage cheese.
