Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

I remember always being impressed by how a Red Velvet Cake looked. Having tried to make pink cupcakes with the kids, and always ending up with a faintly brown, I was incredibly impressed by the colour. But, for a long time, I’d never eaten one. […]

5 Ways to Use Your Microwave

5 Ways to Use Your Microwave

We don’t have a microwave. We did, but we had a tiny kitchen and a little old microwave that did the bare minimum. So, when it died we decided that we needed the space more than the microwave. Priorities and all that. However, we’ve now […]

Simple Sausage Traybake

I love a traybake. There’s nothing easier than throwing some veg, meat and oil onto a tray and letting it bake. That’s really about all it is. This Simple Sausage Traybake is one of my favourite easy meals. It’s up there with the Chicken Traybake, […]

Easy Haggis Burger Recipe

Easy Haggis Burger Recipe

Haggis is something that I suspect many of us outside of Scotland have never tried. Those of us that have might have only had it in the traditional neeps and taties type way. I had never tried it until last year, but I’d always been […]

Beef Bourguignon

Beef Bourguignon

I love a good old-fashioned stew. Whether it’s slow cooked in the oven, or quickly simmered up on the stove top. I love a classic stew were you just throw it all into a dish with some stock and let it cook, and I love […]
