Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!


Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.


I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Balsamic Mushrooms, Chorizo and Egg

Delicious and quick brekkie, brunch or even lunch.

You can't beat a RUNNY EGG YOLK oozing onto your plate

1 Serving

5 Minutes Preparation

8 Minutes Cooking


1 Egg

20g chorizo sausage (outer skin removed and cut into small chunks)

3 Chesnut Mushrooms (chopped)

1tsp Balsamic Vinegar

1 Handfull of Spinach

1 Slice of Bread

Red Pepper Flakes


- Heat a deep pan of water on a high heat and bring to the boil

- Chop the mushrooms and chorizo

- Heat a small frying pan on a medium heat and add oil

- Place the egg into the boiling water gently, avoiding it cracking, then turn the heat down so that it isn't aggressively boiling, set a timer for 5 minutes for a runny yolk or 6/7 for a creamy yolk.

- Add the mushrooms to the frying pan and leave for a couple of minutes until they have a nice brown colour, then toss.

- Add the balsamic to the pan and coat the mushrooms

- Remove the mushrooms and add the chorizo to the same frying pan, leave for a minute

- Toast the bread

- Add toast to the plate and top with washed spinach leaves, then add mushrooms and chorizo topped with the egg

- I dotted some of the oil from the chorizo pan to the plate to add a spice and smokiness and sprinkled with red pepper flakes.
