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 […]

10 Wonderfully Warming Winter Dinners

10 Wonderfully Warming Winter Dinners

I love summer. I’m a summer girl. I love wearing lighter clothes, being able to work outside, it being light until late, and feeling the warm sun on my face. I also like that parenting always seems a little bit easier in the summer. There […]

Slow-Cooked Creamy Beef Curry

Slow-Cooked Creamy Beef Curry

When it comes to making curries, I’m no expert. It’s something that I’ve only been doing for a few months, and while I really enjoy it, and love experimenting with different flavours, I’ve got next to no idea what I’m doing. Sometimes, I stick to […]

Classic Jam Roly-Poly

Classic Jam Roly-Poly

When I say Classic Jam Roly-Poly. It’s not quite that classic. A little different from school Jam Roly-Poly, but only because I’ve reduced the faff. I love a good Jam Roly-Poly. I probably hadn’t had it since I was a kid until quite recently at […]

Brie and Mushroom Soup

We’re having a snow day today. Husband is at work; The Boy is at his Dad’s, and The Bobsy hates snow. She’s very “slippery!! Cold!! Don’t like it” and refuses to set foot on it. I’m fine with this! I don’t mind playing out in […]

One Pot Pork and Cider Casserole

One Pot Pork and Cider Casserole

Pork and Cider is like the grown-up, slightly tangier version of pork and apple. The flavours work perfectly together. This One Pot Pork And Cider Casserole is warming, tangy, creamy and incredibly easy to make. So, basically what’s going on at the moment is, my […]

Meal Plan Week Two: Comforting Autumn Favourites

Meal Plan Week Two: Comforting Autumn Favourites

I actually managed to properly cock up a meal this week. As you’ll know if you follow me on Facebook. Then I cocked up again. You’ll have to read until Tuesday if you want to know more! This week’s meal plan seems to have been […]

Greek Beef Stifado Recipe

Greek Beef Stifado Recipe

A Beef Stifado is basically a Greek stew. But, it tastes completely different from the stews we are used to. It’s full of red wine, loads of spices and flavours, so it’s an almost fruity taste. Very different from my left-over Sunday lunch beef stock […]
