This is the first opportunity that I have had to catch up on my blogging recently! I am so sorry for being so quiet! I have had a pretty jam-packed, amazing, crazy month visiting my relatives in Asia. I will be sharing several travel related posts over the next few weeks! As you know, I love travelling – I love immersing myself in the culture of other countries. I also love getting new cooking inspiration!

Potato and Leek Gratin
I recently had an insane craving for amazing potato gratin. The trouble is, traditional potato gratin is very calorific – all that cream and cheese and butter (nom). So I decided to try and make a healthier version. I was under no illusion that I could make it super healthy, but the version I came up with was tasty and healthier! Little changes can have a big impact!
