Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Humbug I must confess, I’m not really bothered by Halloween. It means we’re a step closer to Christmas, but that’s where my enthusiasm for it ends if I’m honest. When I was a kid, my parents were of the “It’s an American holiday, you’re […]

What We’re Eating Week Three

What We’re Eating Week Three

It’s been such a crazy weather week, hasn’t it? We’ve had crazy windy storms, mad rain, and 20 degrees with sunshine. I love summer, but I must admit, I’d rather proper autumn than this weird mixture. I go out in the morning in a scarf […]

Minty Double Choc Cookies

Minty Double Choc Cookies

There are plenty of ways to make things minty. Mint essence and flavourings are fantastically effective, and of course actual mint is always a good call. But, when I’m baking anything chocolatey and want to add some mint, my go-to is Mint Aero Chocolate bubbles. […]

What We’re Eating Week Two

What We’re Eating Week Two

We’ve had one of those weeks where it’s felt really busy and stressful. But, we haven’t really done much. Husband worked six days the week before. We haven’t had any time off work for ages, we’ve moved to a new house and had loads to […]

Simple Sausage Pasta Bake

Simple Sausage Pasta Bake

Sausages are probably one of my favourite foods. Honestly, a cheap and cheerful sausage and egg sandwich, sausage pasta, a big German sausage from the Christmas market, all of it. They’re easy to cook, go with everything, they’re cheap, and you can do plenty with […]

What We’re Eating Week One

What We’re Eating Week One

Remember when I was good, and I published my meal plans every week? Well, I stopped, because I was over complicating things and trying to schedule them in advance and I found that I was getting really confused and never really knew what I’d eaten. […]

Twix Rocky Road

Twix Rocky Road

I love Rocky Road. Frequent readers might notice that I have a few Rocky Road recipes. I like to add all different chocolate and other bits and bobs. It’s a super easy way to combine all of your favourite things into one super sweet calorie […]

Gorgeous Lamb Kleftiko

Gorgeous Lamb Kleftiko

Lamb Kleftiko is indulgent, tasty, filling, and quite simply fantastic. I’ve been to Greece a few times and it’s always been my favourite thing to eat. A big roast joint of lamb is, I guess, pretty warming and wintery. But, Greek food always reminds me […]

Easy One Pot Chicken and Apricot Tagine

Easy One Pot Chicken and Apricot Tagine

So, a tagine is called a tagine, because it’s cooked in a tagine. This isn’t. I haven’t got one. Husband won’t let me have one because he says it will sit in the back of a cupboard and I’ll still make tagines in my cast […]

Easy No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

Easy No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of my great loves. As are lemons. Well, not lemons, no one actually likes lemons. But, lemons as an ingredients or addition (hi gin and tonic!) A few weeks ago, I made an absolutely gorgeous rich chocolate cheesecake. It was the best […]

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. […]
