Leftover Roast Beef Chow Mein

Leftover Roast Beef Chow Mein

One of the very best things about a Sunday lunch is the leftovers the day after. Sometimes, I just throw it all into the oven (no microwave!) and eat the same thing again. But sometimes I like to use the leftover roast beef, or whatever […]

Halloumi and Potato Curry

Halloumi and Potato Curry

I’ve wanted to make a Halloumi Curry for a while. Halloumi is something that I absolutely love but don’t do enough with. I make the occasional Halloumi Burgers, but apart from that it’s usually used in a sandwich or a salad. There’s much more to […]

Simple Salmon Traybake

Simple Salmon Traybake

I love a good traybake – both the cake version and the meal kind. There’s nothing better than throwing loads of potatoes, vegetables and meat on a tray, drizzling on some oil and herbs and baking it in the oven. There’s loads of flavour and […]

Mini Egg Cookies

Mini Egg Cookies

Such is my love of Easter baking, and all things chocolate, there are already two Mini Egg Cookies recipes on my blog. Not to mention tons of other yummy Easter recipes. I just can’t help myself. This recipe is my favourite so far. It’s a […]

Easter Creme Egg Rocky Road

Easter Creme Egg Rocky Road

I’ve been making my Rocky Road a little differently lately. I used to either just pour chocolate on everything, or make a golden syrup/butter chocolate mix and cover the biscuity bits in this, and then top it with melted chocolate. But, lately, I’ve started making […]

Creme Egg Millionaire Shortbread

Creme Egg Millionaire Shortbread

I quite like Easter. I’m not even a little bit religious, so not in that sense. But I like the idea of welcoming Spring and celebrating new life and everything else that is lovely about this time of year. And the chocolate, of course. Even […]

Mini Egg Rocky Road

Mini Egg Rocky Road

My kids are obsessed with Mini Eggs. When he was young, Michael thought mini eggs were eggs. He was very disappointed one morning when he asked for eggs after Easter! This means that as soon as we enter a new year, and Easter starts taking […]

Sausage and Bean Casserole

Sausage and Bean Casserole

Sausage and beans are probably two of our favourite ingredients. And when you’ve got two favourite things, what do you do? You throw them in a casserole, that’s what! Seriously though, Sausage and Bean Casserole is the perfect meal I think. It’s easy, and incredibly […]

Creamy Chicken and Leek Pasta Bake

Creamy Chicken and Leek Pasta Bake

If you visit often or pay any attention to my Instagram feed you might have noticed that I’m a bit of a pasta fan. I’d happily eat it most nights. And leftover Pasta Sandwiches for lunch, because all the carbs! I love pasta in many […]

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. […]
