Ginger and Lime Cheesecake Recipe

Ginger and Lime Cheesecake Recipe

The Smell of lime reminds me of cocktails. Which is always nice, but generally it’s not a flavour I love. I wanted to buy a lime, to make some salsa later in the week, to go with some halloumi and roasted red pepper burgers. For […]

When is it OK to Leave Children Alone?

When is it OK to Leave Children Alone?

We read stories all the time about parents that have been arrested, or warned, for leaving their children home alone. Or even for leaving them in the car for a few minutes while they pay for petrol. But, with no specific legal guidance, when is […]

The Boy at Six

The Boy at Six

The Boy is six in a few weeks. I don’t understand how this has happened, at all. It is passing so quickly. The first three years of his life, were a little all over the place. Me and his Dad broke up when he’d just […]

10  Things I Hate About Winter

10 Things I Hate About Winter

I hate winter. It’s alright, until Christmas. For a while, the cold, dark days, mean Christmas is approaching. There’s an excitement. The disgusting cold mornings are “fresh” the frost is “festive”, and there’s a hope of snow. Then, suddenly, Christmas is over. Its January. It’s […]

Homemade Jammy Flapjacks

Flapjacks are one of those things that I absolutely love, but won’t have for years. Then I’ll for some reason have one, and end up eating 900 that week! In my humble opinion,  jammy flapjacks are the best. With chocolate coming a very close second. […]

Homemade Toad in the Hole

Homemade Toad in the Hole

I don’t ever remember having toad in the hole before tonight. I’ve had sausages, mash and Yorkshire puddings all together, just not cooked in the hole as such. So, this is Hunky Husbands recipe. It was absolutely amazing. It is incredibly filling, so don’t do […]

Easy Homemade Playdough

Easy Homemade Playdough

I hate playdough. It’s almost a fear. I can’t stand the idea of it getting in the carpet and if the colours mixed, I’d probably spend hours trying to separate them again. I really can’t explain this. Everything else is on our carpet, I honestly […]

Homemade Garlic Naan Breads

Homemade Garlic Naan Breads

Naan bread is brilliant, isn’t it? We should eat them more. I basically only made these because I had some yoghurt left from the flatbreads. They were wonderful (especially as a midnight snack dipped in mayo!) and I’m never ever buying supermarket naan bread again. […]
