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?! […]

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 […]

Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake

Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake

I LOVE pasta. Really really love. I could eat it all of the time, with many different toppings. I also kinda like it on its own. There’s just something so comforting about a giant bowl of pasta. Meals like this Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake […]

Super Simple Salmon Fishcakes with Dill Sauce

Super Simple Salmon Fishcakes with Dill Sauce

Super Simple Salmon Fishcakes with Dill Sauce are a fantastically simple and healthy family meal. Lately, we’ve been trying to eat a little healthier. I couldn’t get a pair of jeans over my thighs a few months ago, which I always think is a sign that […]

Healthy Beef Curry

Healthy Beef Curry

About a year ago, I made a curry from scratch for the first time. I’d always been hugely intimidated by all of the spices and flavours before then. Since that first one, I’ve made many many different curries, many different times. I very much doubt […]
