Super Simple Beanie Burger Recipe

I love a good Bean Burger. While we obviously eat absolutely loads of meat I do enjoy veggie options too. When it comes to burgers, I much prefer a beanie burger to the more “fake meat” tasting choices. I worked for Nando’s for years and their bean burger is absolutely amazing. Husband has been telling… Read More »

Rocky Road

So Rocky Road. I’ve never made it before. It’s basically just the American name for Tiffin with added marshmallows. Unless I’ve done it horribly wrong. But, you know what? If I have, I’m going to do it again because it was amazing! It tastes awesome and feels really nice in your mouth. I made this… Read More »

Milk Chocolate and Cherry Brownies

These are my new favourites. I could eat them forever and thanks to the discovery of boxing on the Wii, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t gain a pound! Honestly, it’s killing me. You wouldn’t think 10 minutes of hitting a virtual punch bag could be so difficult! Our usual brownies are made from dark chocolate… Read More »

Hunky Husband’s Lemon Tart

Hunky husband makes two different versions of the Lemon Tart. The first one he ever made me used a million egg yolks. This meant we also had to make meringue. Because no one likes waste. This version is a little creamier as it uses the whole egg and double cream but they are both equally… Read More »

Vegetarian Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese is The Boy’s favourite meal. He’d eat it 5 times a week if he could. With fish fingers and chips the other days. When asked what he wanted for tea one night this week he rather predictably said “Spaghetti Bolognese”. Generally, if we’ve got the ingredients and he hasn’t already eaten it twice that… Read More »

Chicken and Blue Cheese Pasta

Normally, me and Hunky Husband don’t get a huge amount of time together. He works long shifts and gets home late. So, we try hard to try to spend quality time together when we can. I cook for him at 10 pm and we have late night date nights. We play board games and lock… Read More »

Moist Banana Bread

I make banana bread all the time. Partly because I’m one of those people that can’t eat a banana if it’s a bit green but can’t have a spot of brown on it either. Meaning they’re good for about 3 hours. But also, because it’s the best way to be allowed cake for breakfast. It’s… Read More »

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

If a shepherd’s pie contains lamb because shepherds keep lambs and a cottage pie contains beef because…beef isn’t lamb, which is a vegetarian version? I’m calling it a vegetarian shepherd’s pie because I think that sounds better but, if it is actually a vegetarian cottage pie I apologise. We’re not vegetarians. Far from it, we… Read More »

Chocolate Fudge Loaf Cake

I can’t bake cakes. I’ve always been very clear about this. That is until I made the lemon drizzle cake. The lemon drizzle cake is so amazingly good. Several have been consumed since that first one. When I posted a picture of the Lemon drizzle, the lovely Emma over at Bubba Blue and Me commented… Read More »
