Top Six recipes for March – April 2015


We at the Cookbook team just went through whirlpool of discussions where we decided that we wanted new ways to engage with our readers and tried to think up of some new categories that we could potentially line up for you to read up on. A little brain storming, funny arguments and a couple of cups of tea later we decided that we would start up on some monthly instalments for you. As a part of that whole forming, storming, norming and performing process (trust us it was a process and a half) we came up with a new category for our blog called “Six monthly picks that you shouldn’t miss” and this particularly instalments is here to stay. These recipes are recipes that have been trending over the month, some of them will be new variations or some of them will be classic renditions, nevertheless they will be some amazing recipes that you should still try. Hope you enjoy our new categorisation of some recipes and find some cool, wonderful and delicious things to cook for a meal next time your in the kitchen and don’t know what to make.

Paprika Chicken & Spinach with White Wine Butter Thyme Sauce – Recipe

Paprika Spinach Chicken in White Wine Herb Butter Sauce RecipeThis recipe if for all those chicken lovers out there who like to eat chicken with a great garlic butter sauce.  I try to cook as much of meat as I can with wine because I truly believe that it adds a lot of flavour to it that no other ingredient can. It also gets absorbed into the meat in a way that has the tendency to make it juicier, and so this recipe makes it to this list, mainly because it’s chicken, but mostly because it has some white wine in it but is also quite healthy with some added spice too.

Vegan carrot cake pancakes recipesI have never eaten these pancakes, but honest to god they sound amazing. I never thought pancakes could be made from CARROTS. Like for real these pancakes are made from Carrots! This recipe is definitely going on my to make list, but from what I can tell this seems to be a pretty good response to this recipe and also it’s Vegan because the cream cheese is made from soy milk or almond milk. The recipe has a cornucopia of flavors to it because of the spices added to the pancake and the cream cheese, all we can say is just enjoy what this recipe has to offer and you won’t be disappointed.
