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 […]

Sweet and Sticky Pork

Sweet and Sticky Pork

I really fancied something different the other day. I love making my own sauces; we’ve got such a little store of different kinds of vinegar and spices now and just like when I make curries, I love putting them together to try and create something […]

Valentine’s Brownies

Valentine’s Brownies

Now, first things first. I’m not a huge lover of Valentine’s Day. We have a nice meal and buy each other treats (which we tend to get together, and they tend to be DVDs and things we both want) but we don’t go over the […]

My Favourite Immunity Boosting Foods

My Favourite Immunity Boosting Foods

I used to be one of those people that always had a cold. For years, from September to March, I was ill nearly all of the time. With a few summer colds thrown in. It was rarely anything worse than a bad cold or tonsillitis, […]

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 […]

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 […]

What We Ate Week Eight

What We Ate Week Eight

I’ve been so bad at meal planning lately, and for the most ridiculous reason ever! While you are reading this in January, I’m writing it in December (Happy New Year!), because I like to publish them a few weeks later, so I’ve got a chance […]

3 Ways To Keep Your Family Active

3 Ways To Keep Your Family Active

Keeping your family active is one of the most important things you’ll ever do if you want them to remain healthy and happy in the long term. If you don’t move much and allow your kids to sit around doing the same, they’re instantly building […]

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 […]

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 […]
