Spicy Lime Chicken Wings

I am not much of a sports fan but I might become one just for these Spicy Lime Chicken Wings. Bursting with flavour, smokiness, spice and heat they are a winner, ranking high on the ultimate dude food if you ask me.  And I don’t think you could ever make enough of them. I found the inspiration for these on Instagram one morning. I love Instagram. It feels like I have a circle of friends that stretches around the whole…

Paella l heinstirred.com

I think you have to be pretty brave to publish something like a Paella recipe. Somehow you will be doing or adding something that someone somewhere will deem to be wrong and a sacrilege. But since I am not Spanish I guess I can take a liberty or two. Even if it means they will not allow me to enter the country when I next want to visit.

Marinated Chicken Kebab l heinstirred.com

These marinated chicken kebabs are a fantastic vehicle for to play with some strong aromatic spices. One of the spice mixes I found on My Collections was the The Brazilian Gaucho mix.

The dish was aptly named Extraordinary Roasted Chicken, Potatoes and Chickpeas and she had won a Food 52 contest for “The Best One Pot Meal” with the dish.  A few days later I asked her…

After about a year of blogging I have not yet been able to establish this blog’s main “identity” for myself. My aim each week is to have an interesting and tasty recipe that works but I want readers to love the photographs more than anything else. That is after all the main purpose of the blog, essentially a vehicle for me to grow my craft as a very new to the scene food photographer. The one identity I know this…

This peri peri chicken is so good. The potatoes just as good. And it is even better when you put all the cutlery away and dive in with your hands (as elegant as Nigella does it of course). As South Africans we are no strangers to peri peri chicken and I was intrigued to find this recipe on Feasting at Home a while back. It was based on a Donna Hay recipe and it immediately went on my “to make” list…
