Healthy Spinach and Mushroom Linguine in a Mild Chilli Sauce

Healthy Spinach and Mushroom Linguine in a Mild Chilli Sauce

I’ve eaten so much spinach this week. Honestly, I’ll be surprised if I don’t develop a greenish hue. I like spinach, but it comes in such huge bags (because of the rather unbelievable shrink perhaps?). So, I often buy it for something specific, then find […]

Roasted Red Pepper and Halloumi Flatbreads with Sweet Chilli and Ginger Sauce

Roasted Red Pepper and Halloumi Flatbreads with Sweet Chilli and Ginger Sauce

I love Halloumi. Sometimes, I just fry a whole block and eat it on its own. It’s beautiful. I put it on burgers, in one pot bakes, and on these gorgeous homemade flatbreads. Husband is the biggest meat eater ever, but will indulge my halloumi […]

Brie and Mushroom Soup

Brie and Mushroom Soup

We’re having a snow day today. Husband is at work; The Boy is at his Dad’s, and The Bobsy hates snow. She’s very “slippery!! Cold!! Don’t like it” and refuses to set foot on it. I’m fine with this! I don’t mind playing out in […]

Healthy Breakfast: Turmeric Scrambled Eggs with Tomatoes

Healthy Breakfast: Turmeric Scrambled Eggs with Tomatoes

I love breakfast. But I’m bad at it. I get so bored of toast and cereal. I actually find cereal a little upsetting. You don’t buy one meal for dinner every night. Yet I’m supposed to stick to one box of cereal until it runs […]

Creamy Beetroot and Carrot Soup

Creamy Beetroot and Carrot Soup

When people post beetroot soups recipes and pictures online, they always look so pretty. The bright, vivid purple just looks incredible. Well. This isn’t that. Beetroot and Carrot Soup is a sort of pinky redy orange colour. Still pretty striking, more so if you skip […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I love making soup. Going to be honest, we’ve still done the odd soup over summer. I’m not hugely a believer in only having foods at certain times of the year. You wouldn’t say you couldn’t have a sandwich in December, would you? So, I […]

Mushroom and Halloumi Spaghetti

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 […]

Wonky Vegetable Soup

Wonky Vegetable Soup

About Wonky Veg Some of the larger Asda stores now sell large boxes of wonky vegetables. Basically, these are vegetables that don’t look perfect and would have normally been thrown away. There’s nothing wrong with them, they still taste exactly the same, there’s no actual […]

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Broccoli and stilton soup is my absolute favourite. I love cheese, I love soup, and I love blue cheese sauces generally. So, this is fantastic. It’s not something I normally get to have because Hunky Husband doesn’t like it. But, we thought if he made […]

Leek and Potato Soup

Leek and Potato Soup

I’ve mentioned my love of soup before. It’s great. Especially when it’s cold. I also love potato. So potato soup is a definite win. We went to Elsecar Heritage centre today. It was absolutely freezing. This probably isn’t true. I’m usually cold, so I was […]
