No-Bake Daim Bar Cheesecake

No-Bake Daim Bar Cheesecake

Oh, Daim Bars. How I love thee. Daim Bars are one of those things I’d completely forgotten about. I assume I at some point had them as a child because I knew exactly what they were. But, I don’t remember them. However, we moved to […]

What We’re Eating Week 5

What We’re Eating Week 5

So, I missed a week of what we ate. Actually, I think I might have missed two weeks. Basically, it was two weeks of joyous delight. The week before last started pretty normally. We ate nice normal family meals. Then on Thursday, I got a […]

Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream

Berry Picking Since moving to a new house in August, we’ve become slightly fruit picking obsessed. We’ve got an apple tree in the garden, so we had a few months of apple madness. There was lots of cooking with apples and new recipes. Then, we’ve […]

Classic Apple and Blackberry Crumble

Classic Apple and Blackberry Crumble

Crumbles are one of my favourite desserts. To be honest, I love pretty much anything that you can have with lashings of custard. I love summer, but this year I’m really looking forward to comforting food and stodgy puddings like this Classic Apple and Blackberry […]

Leftover Roast Beef Stroganoff

Leftover Roast Beef Stroganoff

The Sunday Roast I don’t know about you, but I love a Sunday roast. We occasionally have a midweek roast, but it’s rare, and when we do it’s much simpler. But, we have a Sunday roast most weeks. Meat, roast potatoes, roast veggies, mash, stuffing, […]

Roasted Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup

Roasted Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup

There’s very little that grosses me out like the inside of a pumpkin. I don’t mind the seeds, but that weird stringy stuff is horrible. It feels like I don’t even know what. I’m also slightly confused about whether or not I should eat it?! […]

What We’re Eating Week Four

What We’re Eating Week Four

The weather has been so strange this week. When we leave for school in the morning, it’s cold and grey. We’re in big coats and I’ve got the car heater on full. Which also means that traffic is a nightmare and it’s taking us 7 […]

Stodgy Puddings Apple crumble has got to be one of my favourite puddings. I talk all the time about how much I love big stodgy puddings with lashings of custard. I honestly don’t think there’s much better. I usually happily eat things like this all […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
