Chewy Oat and Raisin Cookies

Should I call these oatmeal and raisin cookies? What is oatmeal? Is it just what American’s call porridge? I wouldn’t call them porridge and raisin cookies. So, I will stick to oat and raisin cookies. Whatever they are, they were really good! The kids are both obsessed with raisins at the moment, they won’t stop… Read More »

Mushroom and Halloumi Spaghetti

Do you ever have one of those days when you really want to eat something? But you’re not sure what to do it with? Well, this week I bought a block of halloumi from Lidl. I desperately wanted halloumi for lunch so scoured the fridge and cupboards for something to do with it and then,… Read More »

White Chocolate Brownies

Firstly, are white chocolate brownies blondies? I googled this and some recipes suggest that yes, they are (they call them blondies and are made with white chocolate!) whereas others say that these are white chocolate brownies and that blondies are vanilla with no chocolate in the batter. Personally, I’d have thought if it’s white it’s… Read More »

We recently got sent some lovely Organix treats to try. Frankly, they did not last long! We’re very lucky to have two fantastic eaters. When it comes to meal times, they eat the same as us (except for date nights!) and love trying new things. However, I must admit that snacks can be a bit… Read More »

Cod and Chorizo Stew

I love fish. When we eat out I often look for fish on the menu and whenever we go to the beach I try as much fresh seafood as I can. I just love the flavours. Yet it’s something we rarely cook ourselves. At the moment, we’re making a real effort to have some fun… Read More »

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 »

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 »
