Healthy Five Bean Chilli

Healthy Five Bean Chilli

We are big meat eaters. We’re also big lovers of fatty food and cream! A lot of my recipes seem to feature cream. But, occasionally I like to change things up. When you eat as many biscuits as we do, you need to make the […]

Mini Easter Cheesecakes

Mini Easter Cheesecakes

Last week I published my recipe for Mini Egg Cheesecakes. They were awesome. Cheesecake is one of my favourites. Husband loves it too. The kids aren’t as keen though which means we actually get to eat some for a change, which is never bad. So, […]

Crème Egg Rocky Road

Crème Egg Rocky Road

I love Rocky Road. I’m still not entirely sure it isn’t just Tiffin, but whatever it is, it’s fantastic! It’s just a combination of amazing ingredients all thrown together and topped with chocolate, and you don’t even need to cook it! What could possibly be […]

The Benefits of Cooking from Scratch

The Benefits of Cooking from Scratch

I love to cook. I went through a phase when I rarely cooked. The Boy was two, we were living on our own, I was working late nights, and I was tired. I didn’t think that there was any point in cooking a proper meal […]

Mini Mini Egg Cheesecakes

I know what you are thinking, “that’s not a Mini Egg”. No, it’s not a Mini Egg. Blame Asda. I tend to do our big shops online because while I have a car, we don’t park right outside our house and carrying shopping up while […]

Creme Egg Millionaire Shortbread

Creme Egg Millionaire Shortbread

I love Easter baking. Unfortunately, this year we’re going on holiday really close to Easter, so I feel a bit like I can’t eat the world, or my summer clothes won’t fit. To reduce this panic, I packed them all at the beginning of March, […]

Foods that Help You Sleep

Foods that Help You Sleep

Do you ever remember being told that you shouldn’t eat cheese before bedtime because it would give you nightmares? Well, I’m pretty sure this is rubbish. Why would it? But some foods do make it harder to sleep. Anything with a lot of sugar or […]

Easy Mini Egg Cookies

Easy Mini Egg Cookies

I remember, once upon a time, feeling shock and perhaps even annoyance when crème eggs and mini eggs started appearing in the shops on January 1st. To be honest, I still feel a similar annoyance over Christmas decorations in September. At least wait until Halloween! […]

Spicy One Pot Lamb Curry

Spicy One Pot Lamb Curry

So. I was going to make a lamb bhuna. I really really was. I read about the bhuna; I looked at a few recipes. I prepared some ingredients and wrote a quick plan of what I was going to do. It was going to be […]

The Benefits of Eating Cake

The Benefits of Eating Cake

Ah, cake. I love cake. I’m a big fan. Occasionally I’ll try to cut back, but it just makes me sad. I’d rather go to the gym a couple of times a week and eat what I want. I’m not super skinny, but I’m healthy […]
