Super-quick and easy, this healthy guacamole recipe is delicious with fajitas, quesadillas, dolloped into a wrap or served as a snack with crunchy veggies 

Who doesn't love a good dip! My favourite dips are always spicy and if its a mexican theme then all the better! home made guacamole is so easy to make and so much better for you than jars bought at the supermarket. Try it at home its sooooo easy!

Dark Chocolate Brownies with Rasberries

Who doesn't love a good brownie!? Especially when they are moist and gooey, this recipe certainly is just that! They’re devilishly rich, undeniably dense, sweet, tart and would love a glass of milk to wash them down with, or even a cup of tea, YUM! If you love rasberries and dark chocolate as much as me then this diet busting recipe is for you.

While I had a lighting set up at home a few weeks ago for some portraits of the kids, of of my dogs Yasmine decided it was her turn to be in front of the camera. She loves the attention! Im usually shooting weddings, portraits and food, but sometimes I just want to get something different, this time was just right capturing Yasmine's facial expressions as she sat in front of the camera.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with an amazing stylist Mary Kei  and the very talented lighting guru Selva. Mary Kei  and Selva were kind enough to offer a day of their EID holiday to shoot with me. I have been shooting food at home the last year with natural light but I lack the experience of shooting food in the studio with lighting set ups. We made a plan to use 2 sets - one tungsten lighting and one studio flash. I enjoyed using both lighting setups but boy to prefer natural light still! I love the images we came away with and am very proud to feature them in my portfolio, I must say if I had to choose I would use the flash set up!

One of the most favoured breakfast food in our house is pancakes! My girls love them especially with fresh berries such as blueberries. Of course there are many different kinds of pancakes but the one of best have to be thick and fluffy and that was what I decided to make this morning to eat and shoot.

My eldest daughter came home from school super chuffed with herself that she loved something new that she tasted in school - lemon curd, so we had to get some! Instead of buying some we made some together and helping mummy in the kitchen is always fun! Its so easy to make and I have made it several times over the years but this is my favourite recipe, Homemade lemon curd is quick and easy and so much more mouthwatering than the shop-bought variety. There are some pretty amazing benefits from eating lemons, here are just a few......

  This has go to be one of my favourite soups this year, its healthy, nutritious and super tasty! Its one of those recipes that warms your soul, it doesn't get too cold here in Dubai but the AC can chill your bones sometimes and thats when I love a good soup! I love to make a big batch of soup and freeze it for for later.

  The last six months, maybe more I have questioned my abilities,  what I am good at, what I want to shoot and what makes me happy. I have loved shooting weddings the last few years and find myself more and more interested in the detail shots of the brides shoes, dress and flowers more appealing than than the portraits - maybe I'm not cut out for people all the time!

 Marco Pierre White Grill Restaurant at The Conrad

I had the pleasure of going along to the new Conrad Hotel in Dubai to shoot some of their new festive dishes as well as get some new pictures of Marco Pierre while he was visiting. We have to tell you the food smelled amazing and we all wanted to devour it rather than shoot it!
