Remember having a Chia Pet as a kid? It was a little toy dog or cat that you watered and it sprouted and grew before your eyes! Well…that my friends, was the first time I was introduced to chia seeds. Now…I use them in a different light and let me tell you, they are a […]
Since I have been eating meat, I have been experimenting with various meat dishes and flavours. Some of them are still too “meaty” flavoured for my liking, so I wanted to make a recipe that still used meat, but wasn’t too overbearing for my ex-vegetarian palate.
