Chilli Infused Oil

A simple and intense infusion of dried chillies and oil; perfect to top pizza, fish or to be used as a condiment in any other dish. Hot chilli oil – an essential in any pantry for a spice lover. I’m sure that from the few recipes that I have posted to this blog it is clear that I quite like to add a little umph to my food. And by that I mean a little something to wake up those taste buds and potentially your sinuses and tear ducts every now and again. I appreciate that not everyone enjoys spice but for some of us a dish just isn’t complete until without a little heat, someone out there surely knows what I’m talking about.

Shall I just say I agree with the point, I think that will cover it. I have always loved breakfast; and growing up in the beautiful Turks and Caicos this statement is even more so true on a Saturday morning.

Egg Muffins

Hi and welcome to Nibbling at Dawn! I am oh so pleased that you are joining me as I launch my food blog to bring you all exciting, delicious and fun recipes. This first recipe post is for one of my ‘busy-working-girl’ favourites, delicious breakfast egg muffins. These muffins take a bit of preparation but are seriously worth it in the end. They are filled with great nutrients such as calcium, protein and vitamin A; and on a weekday morning when you are in a rush they are quite convenient to have on hand for breakfast. These muffins can be stored in the refrigerator; I recommend eating them within 10 days. I typically place two muffins in the oven in the morning for 5 minutes which warms them to perfection. They are an easy to eat meal while preparing for work in the mornings. They can also be warmed in the microwave and are perfect on their own or with toast or crumpets topped with your favourite jam. Enjoy the Nibbling!   Save Print Prep…
