Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya

Chicken and Chorizo Jambalaya

Jambalaya means jumbled up. I think. Please don’t shout at me if that isn’t quite right! It’s exactly my kind of cooking. A bit like a paella or a risotto, everything is just thrown together with some rice and all cooked in the same pan. […]

Healthy Turkey Cottage Pie

Healthy Turkey Cottage Pie

I love really filling, comforting meals. Preferably absolutely packed with carbs and covered in cheese! But, I’m also trying to tone up a bit and get back into my skinny jeans. I can’t give up cake. And I don’t want to count calories or diet, […]

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Husband often steals my recipes at work. He’ll Come home and tell me that he’s made my Lemon Drizzle Cakes, or super-sized my bourbon cream recipe (amazing btw!). He’s also been making some of my muffins. Now and then, the tables turn, and he tells […]

Lemon and Elderflower Loaf Cake

Lemon and Elderflower Loaf Cake

I really massively need to branch out a little bit and start making circle cakes. The sponge bit must be similar, and there are all sorts of fantastic filling options. But, loaf cakes are just so simple. They cook really well, you can add almost […]

Super Simple, Wonderfully Healthy Turkey Burgers!

Super Simple, Wonderfully Healthy Turkey Burgers!

We love burgers. Husband makes the best beef burgers ever, and we love trying new toppings and combinations. This is a love that the kids have inherited. Robyn looks so funny holding a massive burger, but she absolutely loves them. We’d probably eat a big […]

KitKat Rocky Road

KitKat Rocky Road

I’ve wanted to make KitKat Rocky Road for a while. KitKats are my weakness. I love them. Especially a KitKat Chunky with a cup of tea. There’s nothing better; I could have one a day. I’m not a huge fan of all of the funny […]

Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake

Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake

I LOVE pasta. Really really love. I could eat it all of the time, with many different toppings. I also kinda like it on its own. There’s just something so comforting about a giant bowl of pasta. Meals like this Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake […]

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 […]

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 […]
