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 ...

Spinach and Ricotta Pasta Bake

Pasta bake is one of our go to family favourites. I am terrible for buying jars of pasta bake sauce. The kind you just pour over dried pasta and cook in the oven. It’s easy, and the kids love it, ...

Halloumi Bake with Tomato and Basil

I’m slightly obsessed with halloumi. I love cheese generally, but halloumi is special. It isn’t like cheese. It’s just halloumi. It makes your teeth squeak and it’s wonderful. Coupled with my love of anything one pan and this is a pretty ...

Greek Chicken Wraps

I worry that really this marinade is only Greek, because of its Greek yoghurt. But that will do. Tzatziki and flatbreads are Greek. So, it’s Greek! I make my own Tzatziki and flatbreads, but they are easy to buy if ...

Loaded Sweet Potatos

Sweet potatoes are something I only discovered a few years ago. I don’t even remember them existing when I was a kid! I wish I’d known about them much sooner, they are wonderful. Full of vitamin C, and unlike white ...

Bacon and Spinach Frittata

Is a frittata breakfast? Whenever I read other recipes, it’s described as breakfast. But I can’t see this. I like a light cereal or toast based breakfast. Or a giant greasy breakfast. Or poached eggs. Ok, I like lots of ...

Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya

This was my first ever Jambalaya. I’d never even eaten one, never mind made it myself. If I’m being honest, I’m not sure I even knew what it was. Hunky Husband says it means “jumbled up”, which is accurate. I’ve ...

Loaded Potato Skins

Jacket potatoes are a win in our house. We generally go for a classic bean and cheese combo. Loaded potato skins are a great way to add a bit of verity to your lunch time potato. Bacon and either onion ...

One Pan Sausage Roast

I have previously expressed a great love of sausages. I also love any meal that you can add loads of vegetables to. This one meets both of those requirements for a great family meal. It’s also, super easy, and ridiculously ...

Simple sausage Casserole

Ah, sausages. How I love thee. From a big German sausage from the German Christmas Market, to a sausage pasta bake and everything in between. I’m not sure much beats a sausage and egg sandwich. Or a fancy BBQ sausage, ...

Creamy Smoked Mackerel and Spring Onion Risotto

I Love risotto. The creamier the better. With added Parmesan. Isn’t everything better with cheese? This one has cream too! Hunky husband makes it really weirdly and cooks the rice in water, like normal rice. Then drains it and adds ...

Blue Cheese and Sweet Potato Frittata

I’ve only recently discovered frittatas, I made my first one a few months ago. I love them! Like the good old omelette, you can add whatever you can find in the fridge, it’s a brilliant day before shopping meal you ...

Homemade Beef Burgers

I love Homemade Burgers. They’re so versatile, you can add any flavours you want, and any toppings you want. I like cheese and pineapple, bacon, more cheese, haloumi, other meats, and a bit more cheese. Probably not all on the ...

Chicken and Chorizo Tray Bake

As a busy mum of young kids, I don’t think there're many recipes better than those you can just throw everything in one tray or pan and leave to cook. And if you can get loads of veggies in it, ...

Steak with peppercorn sauce and chips

Steak with Peppercorn Sauce

This is our ultimate date night meal. Hunky Husband does my steak absolutely perfectly, so this has become what I ask for if he offers to cook me something special. (Or the Risotto. The Risotto is really good!) We serve ...
