Rhubarb and Custard Loaf Cake

Rhubarb and Custard Loaf Cake

I’m a bit fussy with rhubarb. I always think that I like it. When it appears in the shops I get all excited. Perhaps just because it means that the warmer weather has arrived, and I love that! Then, I find it a little tart […]

Easy Ways to Make Extra Cash Online

Easy Ways to Make Extra Cash Online

We’ve all needed a little extra money at some point in our lives. Whether it’s to save for something big or to pay for that week’s food shopping, most of us have been there. Nowadays, we often turn to the internet. My mission to try […]

Coping with Early Menopause

Coping with Early Menopause

Menopause is something that’s so rarely talked about. We think it’s ages away and something that we don’t need to worry about for a long time. Some of us even look forward to a time where we don’t have to worry about birth control or […]

Earl Grey Fruit Loaf 

Earl Grey Fruit Loaf 

I’m calling this an Earl Grey Fruit Loaf because it’s got Earl Grey and fruit in it, and its loaf shaped. There’s also no butter or fat, so it doesn’t seem to be a cake as such. You could call it a tea cake though […]

My Favourite Breakfasts

My Favourite Breakfasts

I love breakfast foods. There are breakfast foods that rank highly on my list of all-time favourite foods. I was going to say, “is there anything better than a good sausage?” (lol), then, I remembered toast. I adore toast. I love it with loads and […]

Coffee Loaf Cake

Coffee Loaf Cake

I love coffee. But, I do not like coffee flavoured things. That coffee Quality Street is the worst thing in the world. Coffee flavour things I find generally don’t taste like actual coffee. Much like banana flavour things don’t taste like bananas. Unless you make […]

Cherry and Dark Chocolate Flapjacks

Cherry and Dark Chocolate Flapjacks

Flapjacks are good, aren’t they? Especially when the oats are really soft and chewy. I like to use plenty of butter so that you get a soft and sweet oaty flapjack. I’m not as keen when they’re a bit drier and more biscuit like. I […]

Healthy Beef Curry

Healthy Beef Curry

About a year ago, I made a curry from scratch for the first time. I’d always been hugely intimidated by all of the spices and flavours before then. Since that first one, I’ve made many many different curries, many different times. I very much doubt […]

Mini Bailey’s Cheesecakes

Mini Bailey’s Cheesecakes

I love Bailey’s. But, firstly, I must apologise to the actual Bailey’s people. I don’t buy Bailey’s. I used to. Then I tried the Aldi version, Ballycastle. It tastes exactly the same and costs £3.75! Really! That makes it perfect for baking things like my […]


Our Family Favourites!

Homemade Pork Chow Mein

Homemade Pork Chow Mein

Chow Mein is one of my favourites. It’s the noodles. I’m totally obsessed with noodles. Even if we order something different from a takeaway place, we get extra noodles or a plain chow mein, and plenty of my Fakeaways work well with noodles instead of […]

Bakewell Flapjack Recipe

Bakewell Flapjack Recipe

This Bakewell Flapjack Recipe has always been one of the most popular on my blog. It gets so many views, consistently all of the time. I’m currently in the process of remaking some of my old favourites, changing the photos and so forth. So this […]

Healthy Paprika Pork with Noodles

Healthy Paprika Pork with Noodles

I love noodles. I absolutely always order them when we have a Chinese takeaway, even if this sometimes means that we’re having rice, noodles and chips (we always have rice noodles and chips!) because I couldn’t bear to be without them. But, at home, aside […]

The Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls

The Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls

So, I know people say things are the best ever all of the time. Bloggers call everything the best ever as clickbait. It works. But it’s old. These really are The Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls. Honestly. I’ve made them using a few different recipes, and […]

Cheesy Chicken and Chorizo Pasta Bake

Cheesy Chicken and Chorizo Pasta Bake

I love pasta bake. It’s so easy; it’s the pasta version of a one-pan roast really. You just chop everything up, cook some pasta and throw it into the oven. This Cheesy Chicken and Chorizo Pasta Bake is filling, packed with flavours and has absolutely […]
