Homemade Blue Cheese and Red Onion Jam Beef Burgers

Homemade Blue Cheese and Red Onion Jam Beef Burgers

Now Husband is working these lovely new hours and we’re eating together more we’ve got time to be a little more creative. So, from now on (well technically from last week) Thursday shall be Burger Night. I love homemade burgers. Partly because Husband makes the […]

Super Simple Beanie Burger Recipe

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 […]

Vegetarian Bolognese

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 […]

Chicken and Blue Cheese Pasta

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 […]

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

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 […]

Wonky Vegetable Soup

Wonky Vegetable Soup

About Wonky Veg Some of the larger Asda stores now sell large boxes of wonky vegetables. Basically, these are vegetables that don’t look perfect and would have normally been thrown away. There’s nothing wrong with them, they still taste exactly the same, there’s no actual […]

Chilli Con Carne

Chilli Con Carne

I’ve blogged a chilli recipe before. But, it was at the start of my blogging journey, which invariably means it was awful! As I was making one today, I thought this was a good time to re-do it. Isn’t it amazing when you look back […]

Homemade Stuffed Crust Pizza Recipe

Homemade Stuffed Crust Pizza Recipe

I made my first homemade pizza about a month ago. It was without doubt the best pizza I’d ever eaten, and I’ve made a few since (sometimes for the kids, I’m not like a pizza addict). Now, once you’ve mastered pizza, I think the next […]

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Broccoli and stilton soup is my absolute favourite. I love cheese, I love soup, and I love blue cheese sauces generally. So, this is fantastic. It’s not something I normally get to have because Hunky Husband doesn’t like it. But, we thought if he made […]

Homemade Chicken and Leek Pie Recipe

Homemade Chicken and Leek Pie Recipe

We had a situation last week, where whilst switching internet providers, we were internetless for 2 days. Which was awful. Especially as I work online. I ended up spending an evening with my lovely in-laws, so I could steal their Wi-Fi to get some work […]
