Review! STEAK @West14th, Dubai

Last friday night my friends and I went to a lovely restaurant called West 14th. Known as the 'Best Steakhouse and Grill in Dubai'. I do love steak but it isn't something I eat very often so I was really looking forward to it.


The staff in the restaurant were so welcoming and there is nothing better than having good service, yummy food plus amazing company. 

Attention to detail always adds a little bit of something when visiting somewhere new. At West 14th they had branded plates and wave shaped cutlery.

Once we had ordered we were all given the opportunity to choose our own steak knife from a selection in a box which increased in weight. Of course the man of the table chose the biggest and heaviest!


While we waited for our main course we had a fresh loaf of white herb bread to share which came with a saw as a bread knife! Once again Mr C came in handy to cut up the bread. I think I would have hacked it to bits....



I ordered the Black Angus Tenderloin 180g 'well done' mainly because I don't like blood or rare meat, but... it was super nice to me just the way I liked it. 

We all shared some creamed spinach plus I chose the hand cut fries to go with mine and the wild mushroom sauce.

There were a great selection of desserts on the menu but we were so full we didn't get to try them (next time!). Milk and cookies and S'mores were just some of the American options available.

Not only was the food delicious it also had an amazing view!

Let's Bake! Gluten free Cheese Scones! #misskveggie




I just love savoury scones, as you will know by my love of courgette muffins recipe. I was recently catering for a buffet with some friends and one of my friend can only have gluten free so I decided to try out a usual full proof bero book recipe but swapping out the SR flour for Gluten free. 

What do you need?
175g Gluten free flour
1/2 tsp of English Mustard
25g Margarine
75g Red Leiester cheese (grated)
 1 egg (beaten)
2 tbsp Semi Skimmed milk
Pinch of salt & pepper

Create!
Mix all the ingredients reserving a small amount of egg and 25% of the cheese for topping.

Once all mixed,  sprinkle some flour on the surface then use rolling pin to roll out dough to 1cm thick. 

Cut out in the shape of your choice, I chose hearts on this occasion.

Place onto a grease proof paper within a large flat baking sheet and place the shapes not too close to each other.

Brush each shape with left over milk then sprinkle with left over cheese and bake for up to 15 mins until golden brown, then once cooked place on a wire tray to cool.

Miss K's September Favourites!


Mint Tea is fast becoming my daily fix in the afternoons or evenings. I just love the little monkey attached to the tea bags too. The little things can make you smile.

Zoella spray & Makeup Bags
I am loving the detail on the new Zoella Beauty merchandise, which comes with guinea pigs wearing specs awww so cute! The prices are affordable and of good quality and I know I didn't need 2 new makeup bags but I couldn't choose and I am sure they will come in handy for my winter holidays coming up. I haven't tried any of the bath fizz's, body wash or creams yet but I do really love the sweet smell of the body spray so I will be trying them out next.


Make up bags £8 each available at Superdrug

Body Spray £8

Pumpkin Spiced Latte & Halloween Chocs
I hadn't tried the pumpkin spiced latte before this year mainly because there wasn't a Starbucks near me. After becoming obsessed with the summer special I couldn't shut up about (mocha coconut if you missed it) I thought why not give this a try. I just love it so much, its coffee with a spicy but sweet syrup and hot milk, then there is the optional (but naughty) whipped cream with cinnamon on top.

When I was on holiday in Greece earlier in the year, all cappuccinos come with cinnamon instead of chocolate. It's really nice, so if you don't fancy the pumpkin latte why not try swapping the chocolate next time on your usual.



More good things about this time of year is the tiny seasonal chocolates, I found these in my local shop which I think will come in handy for my nephew's trick or treat box.




Autumn boots
I am fully topped up on winter coats from last year's splurge but winter boots are something you do need to invest in yearly mostly due to the weather damaging them. I found these in my local Miss Selfridge with 20% discount. They are not too high and are comfy to wear for work or nights out. Plus I love the mix of soft leather and suede.



Hemsley + Hemsley
My favourite bloggers of this month are chef's Jasmine & Melissa Hemsley, their blog and new book have some great recipes which are free of gluten, high starch and refined sugar. I will be trying out a few recipes over the winter season which I will share with you on my blog tried and tested. My friend Miss A has already made some recommendations which I tried. You can also follow their Instagram @hemsleyhemsley


Baked Courgettes with ground almonds & beaten egg
I can't wait to try out some more courgette recipes like this - Quicker than toast

Melanzane Parmigiana (aubergine)! #misskveggie


Over the last few month's I have been finding my feet with more vegetable based dishes.

This has to be one of my favourites to make and eat, which you can serve as a side dish or as a main event. Aubergine can be quite oily so you have to be careful when baking or frying try to use oil sparingly.

What you need - Serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a side dish
1 aubergine (sliced 1/2 cm thick)
1 large onion (finely chopped)
olive oil (for light frying)
fresh mozzarella cheese
passata / chopped tomatoes
Sundried tomato paste
dried mixed herbs
parmesan cheese

Create! 
1. Pan fry each slice of aubergine with a drizzle of oil until golden brown set to one side






2. Separately soften the chopped onion
3. Blend the chopped tomatoes, passata, tablespoon of sundried tomato paste, mixed herbs and the soften onion




4. Cover the bottom of your oven proof dish with some of the homemade tomato sauce
5. Layer with 50% of the pre cooked aubergine slices
6. Slice the fresh mozzarella and scatter some (to taste) over the aubergine
7. Repeat steps 4, 5, 6 and complete with step 4.
8. Sprinkle with thinly shaved parmesan cheese



9. Place in a hot oven (180c) for up to 30 minutes
10. Serve with a yummy rocket salad (Miss S does an amazing one with tiny tomberries)



YUM!

This one is for you Nicola S!
