Red Red – Ghanaian Black Eyed Beans Stew

Believe it or not, I used to hate beans. It was only until a year and a half ago (when I gave up meat) that I started to eat more beans and pulses. It was then that I realised they aren’t so bad. Red Red is a traditional Ghanaian stew made with black eyed beans…

Red Velvet Cake

Gluten-Free Chocolate & Walnut Brownies

Here is another brownie recipe, and this time, they’re gluten free! After seeing food blogger Lithuanian in the USA post an amazing recipe for chocolate and walnut brownies, I was inspired to make my own.
