My Favourite Breakfasts

My Favourite Breakfasts

I love breakfast foods. There are breakfast foods that rank highly on my list of all-time favourite foods. I was going to say, “is there anything better than a good sausage?” (lol), then, I remembered toast. I adore toast. I love it with loads and…

Yummy Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Yummy Blueberry Muffin Recipe

The kids love chocolate muffins. They have them all of the time. I’m not that keen. I like them, but I prefer a fruity muffin. To be honest, I also prefer fruity cheesecakes, tarts and other puddings. But, as parents, we only ever buy things…

My Favourite Toastie Fillings!

My Favourite Toastie Fillings!

Toasties are perhaps one of my favourite things in the whole world. I love yummy pasta dishes, and fantastic fakeaways, I enjoy trying new meals and experimenting with different ingredients and flavours. But, you know what, nothing beats a toastie. Expect perhaps turkey dinosaurs and…

The Benefits of Cooking from Scratch

The Benefits of Cooking from Scratch

I love to cook. I went through a phase when I rarely cooked. The Boy was two, we were living on our own, I was working late nights, and I was tired. I didn’t think that there was any point in cooking a proper meal…

Healthy Spinach and Mushroom Linguine in a Mild Chilli Sauce

Healthy Spinach and Mushroom Linguine in a Mild Chilli Sauce

I’ve eaten so much spinach this week. Honestly, I’ll be surprised if I don’t develop a greenish hue. I like spinach, but it comes in such huge bags (because of the rather unbelievable shrink perhaps?). So, I often buy it for something specific, then find…

Our Favouite Date Night Dinners

Our Favouite Date Night Dinners

I’d say we eat with the kids most of the time. Then, occasionally, we put them to bed early having fed them turkey dinosaurs, secretly wishing we’d had them ourselves, and we cook one of these Date Night Dinners. Our kids eat most things, so…

Chocolate and Raspberry Valentine’s Cupcakes

Chocolate and Raspberry Valentine’s Cupcakes

These Chocolate and Raspberry Valentine’s Cupcakes are amazing. Honestly, the chocolate sponge is just delightfully moist and chocolatey, and even a few raspberries in the buttercream icing gives it a gorgeous fruity flavour that compliments the chocolate exceptionally well. When you bite in and get…

Valentine’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Valentine’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love baking cookies, our gorgeous soft and simple Chocolate Chip Cookies are fantastic, and always popular, so much so that we also make a Christmas variation. I’ve said before that we’re not massive valentine’s fans, and that I just use it as an excuse…

Valentine’s Brownies

Valentine’s Brownies

Now, first things first. I’m not a huge lover of Valentine’s Day. We have a nice meal and buy each other treats (which we tend to get together, and they tend to be DVDs and things we both want) but we don’t go over the…
