TASTY HOMEMADE BEEF SAMOSAS

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and starting this week off right, another week calls for another post and today I decided to come on here and share with you a recipe of one of my delicious bites that I love to make. Samosas are great when it comes to entertaining or even as snacks and the best part is that you can make the filling with whatever your heart desires so long as it’s edible. I used meat in mine but if you’re a vegetarian, you can use potatoes and peas or a medley of your favourite vegetables and you’re good to go. This is how to make my tasty homemade beef samosas.

KICKING IT SHISH KEBAB STYLE

kicking it shish kebab style

Hello there,

Yes people I am totally kicking it shish kebab style and love the outcome. This week I wanted to experiment a bit more and move away from my cliché meals of pasta and rice. To be honest, this was totally accidental because I wanted to make meatballs but since meatballs go with pasta, I didn’t want to even go there and just before I forget, go here to check out my best pasta sauce. So my direction changed and I ended up with these bad boys. If you would like to introduce something new to your menu, here is how you can make them.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional in making shish kebabs, in fact I didn’t use skewers because I forgot that I didn’t get any on my last shopping trip and lastly, I was really aiming for them to look like Croatian çevapis hence the shape. Now let’s go ahead and show you what you need.
