Easy Blueberry and Lemon Loaf Cake

Easy Blueberry and Lemon Loaf Cake

So, I still can’t really do cake. I always say this, and then my cakes always turn out quite well, so I’m starting to look like one of those people that says they’re bad at something and then is actually good and just looking for […]

Cheesy Chicken and Chorizo Pasta Bake

Cheesy Chicken and Chorizo Pasta Bake

I love pasta bake. It’s so easy; it’s the pasta version of a one-pan roast really. You just chop everything up, cook some pasta and throw it into the oven. This Cheesy Chicken and Chorizo Pasta Bake is filling, packed with flavours and has absolutely […]

Easy Lamb Korma

Easy Lamb Korma

I seem to be making a different curry every week at the moment. It’s something I really enjoy, and we’re all slightly addicted to my homemade naan bread. We all love curry, so really, everyone is happy, and this week was even better. This week […]

Mini Egg Rocky Road

Mini Egg Rocky Road

My kids are obsessed with Mini Eggs. When he was young, Michael thought mini eggs were eggs. He was very disappointed one morning when he asked for eggs after Easter! This means that as soon as we enter a new year, and Easter starts taking […]

What We Ate Week Ten

What We Ate Week Ten

After all the kid’s stuff last week, this week was a little more grown up. We’re very lucky that the kids will eat nearly anything, so we can all eat together (which I think is super important!) and still get a fantastic, varied diet. Monday […]

Basic Carrot Loaf Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

Basic Carrot Loaf Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

I’d never had carrot cake until a few years ago. I think as a child there’s something quite off-putting about carrots in cake, even though I loved carrots. Cheesecake too I always found to be an odd concept. However, since braving my first carrot cake […]

Creamy Beetroot and Carrot Soup

Creamy Beetroot and Carrot Soup

When people post beetroot soups recipes and pictures online, they always look so pretty. The bright, vivid purple just looks incredible. Well. This isn’t that. Beetroot and Carrot Soup is a sort of pinky redy orange colour. Still pretty striking, more so if you skip […]

Pork Souvlaki Wraps

Pork Souvlaki Wraps

Following on from the success of our Beef stifado and Greek takeaway we really fancied more Greek food. We have chicken souvlaki wraps quite often. I love making flatbreads and they work perfectly. The kids love them too. So, fresh and tasty. But, we’ve been […]

Ginger Christmas Cake with Opies Foods

Ginger Christmas Cake with Opies Foods

I’ve never made a Christmas cake. I didn’t like them for a long time (nor did I like mince pies or Christmas puddings…actually I still don’t like Christmas pudding. Yuck!) so it’s not something that ever came up. My mum also makes a pretty amazing […]

Easy Apple and Cinnamon Blondies

Easy Apple and Cinnamon Blondies

I’m having such an apple phase at the moment. Everything I cook has got apples in it. I just love the flavour; it works so well baked there’s just something about it that screams autumn and festivities. I love it! These Easy Apple and Cinnamon […]
