Creamy Salmon and Leek Pasta Bake

Creamy Salmon and Leek Pasta Bake

I love pasta. I honestly could eat it every day for weeks and never get bored. To be honest, I could probably eat a few pasta based meals again and again quite happily. It’s just so filling and comforting. Pasta bake is probably one of […]

7 Simple Soup Ideas for Winter

7 Simple Soup Ideas for Winter

I love soup. I must admit though; I’m not a “soups for winter” “ice cream is for summer” kind of girl. I probably fancy a warming soup, or a bit hearty casserole more often in the winter, but I still have the odd urge in […]

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.

Rocky Road Cheesecake

Rocky Road Cheesecake

Rocky road and cheesecake are two of my favourite things. Rocky road is great because it’s super simple. You mix all of your favourite things together and basically cover them in chocolate. Which is just wonderful. I always think that Rocky Road is basically a […]

I love mint chocolate. It’s such a fantastic flavour. I’m particularly fond of After Eights, mint matchmakers and mint options hot chocolate. My dad always used to have After Eights at Christmas, so mint chocolate reminds me of Christmas, even though it’s not a remotely […]

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 Turkey Korma

Leftover Turkey Korma

Confession, for the last few years, we’ve had Christmas dinner with Jim’s parents. So, we’re not left with loads of turkey. We do sometimes bring some home, but it’s literally enough for sandwiches the next day. But, I remember when I was younger having to […]
