Haggis Cottage Pie

Haggis Cottage Pie

Haggis Cottage pie is a fun twist on a family classic, and the perfect way to try haggis for the first time.

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 […]

Leftover Turkey Chilli

Leftover Turkey Chilli

Chilli Chilli is one of our favourite meals. The kids love it, as long as it’s not too spicy, and me and husband especially love having the leftovers on a jacket potato the day after. That’s probably the best thing about chilli. You can make […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Healthy Turkey Cottage Pie

Healthy Turkey Cottage Pie

I love really filling, comforting meals. Preferably absolutely packed with carbs and covered in cheese! But, I’m also trying to tone up a bit and get back into my skinny jeans. I can’t give up cake. And I don’t want to count calories or diet, […]

Super Simple, Wonderfully Healthy Turkey Burgers!

Super Simple, Wonderfully Healthy Turkey Burgers!

We love burgers. Husband makes the best beef burgers ever, and we love trying new toppings and combinations. This is a love that the kids have inherited. Robyn looks so funny holding a massive burger, but she absolutely loves them. We’d probably eat a big […]
