RueDoes Prawn & Vegetable Stir-Fry

Today I will be sharing with you a quick and easy recipe that I love to make when I have little time on my hands. I’m sure all of you have had a stir-fry before, and what’s so great about it is that you can cater it to your own taste. There are loads of…

RueDoes Vegetarianism (for a week)

It has been a week since I moved to Spain and I’ve settled pretty nicely into my flat and my new town. My flatmate Nicole and I are getting on really well and it is actually astonishing how alike we are! She defines herself as a “meat-reductionist” which means that she is a vegetarian most…

JRC Global Buffet: Watford High Street

I must admit, I have been to many buffets, and JRC Global Buffet is by far the best of them all! It’s quite obvious from the name, but JRC have a range of different cuisines on offer! From Chinese, Thai and Japanese to American, Italian, Mexican, Spanish and Indian! So today I’d like to share…

RueDoes Curry Prawns & Roti

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but as usual it’s lovely to be blogging again. I have been cooking quite a lot recently, but haven’t had the chance to properly sit down and do it – A poor excuse I know, but I’m working on it. Thank you to all my friends and family who…
