Super Simple Pork Stew

Super Simple Pork Stew

I love a stew. They are so easy and last for days. While I like trying new flavours and different ingredients in my stews and casseroles, sometimes, you just want something really basic that you can throw in a pan and leave for a few […]

Pork and Chorizo Casserole

Pork and Chorizo Casserole

I’m in such a casserole phase at the moment. The day I made this we had horrible snow forecast forever. My phone weather forecast was basically 100% snow for 24 hours. We’d just been to see Santa, which Bobsy absolutely hated, and we were huddled […]

Easy Beef Goulash Recipe

Easy Beef Goulash Recipe

I love stews and casseroles. I’m not entirely sure what the difference is. But I love them. Warming, easy, packed with flavour and nutrients and the meat is always so beautifully tender. Meals like this Beef Goulash are absolutely perfect on a cold winters night […]

One Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

One Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

This started off as a Madhur Jaffrey recipe. Which I’m sure would have been wonderful, but I made a few changes. The first because I didn’t have any chilli powder, somehow! But I did have some gorgeously fresh green chillies I wanted to use. Madhur […]

Haggis Meatballs in a Creamy White Wine and Parmesan Sauce

Haggis Meatballs in a Creamy White Wine and Parmesan Sauce

Last week, was the first time I’d ever had Haggis. We used it in a cottage pie, with swede and potato mash and it was bloody amazing. I thought I’d probably like it; I like most things, but, I really loved it. Which is a […]

Haggis Cottage Pie with Swede and Potato Mash

Haggis Cottage Pie with Swede and Potato Mash

I’ve never had haggis before. I don’t think. Certainly not that I remember. This week was my first go at experimenting with what I could do with it. I was surprised to find it tastes like faggots. Husband doesn’t know what faggots are (and Grammarly […]

One Pot Pork and Cider Casserole

One Pot Pork and Cider Casserole

Pork and Cider is like the grown-up, slightly tangier version of pork and apple. The flavours work perfectly together. This One Pot Pork And Cider Casserole is warming, tangy, creamy and incredibly easy to make. So, basically what’s going on at the moment is, my […]

Epic Chicken Korma

Epic Chicken Korma

It was a bit of an Epic Chicken Korma. I wasn’t entirely sure what I was doing, to be honest. I’ve eaten a lot of Chicken Korma in my time, but I’ve never made one, and I struggled to get that distinct Chicken Korma flavour. […]

Roast Pork and Apple with Honey Mustard Glaze

Roast Pork and Apple with Honey Mustard Glaze

That sounds a bit posher than my regular family-friendly meals, doesn’t it? Roast Pork and Apple with Honey Mustard Glaze!! But, it’s totally not at all! Pork and apple is a brilliant mix, and the idea for honey and mustard glaze basically comes from subways […]

Comforting Cottage Pie

Comforting Cottage Pie

I always call this Shepherd’s pie. It’s not; Shepherds keep sheep, not cows. I love this cottage pie. So do the rest of the family. I try really hard to vary our meals and try new things. But, this is just one of those things […]
