Sugar free apple crumble

It’s been a while since posting and I will get back through the backlog but in the meantime to celebrate 4 months since surgery I wanted to make a sugar free dessert. Inspired by one of my surgery buddies who was making apple and oat muffins for breakfast I decided to attempt a sugar free…

Fruit scones

My hubby loves his sweet things and as you know I’m having to be good getting ready for surgery but as he is having a bit of a bad time at the moment I asked him if I could get him anything and he told me he really fancied scones. I’ve never made scones before…

Maple Mustard Glazed Gammon

I’m actually writing this maple mustard glazed gammon recipe on Christmas Eve as I realised I hadn’t got it detailed anywhere and with my memory going the way it is I thought it best to get this somewhere safe before I forget how!! I love gammon almost better than turkey on the big day and…

Banana, Prune & Walnut Bread

I adore banana bread, not just because is its really easy to make, uses up old bananas and is a very forgiving recipe but because it tastes delicious. Elsewhere on the blog I have a no added sugar recipe which I’ve been making for years but I was doing my usual root through my larder…

Orange bundt cake

Rice Pudding in a Pressureking Pro

The Dazzler requested a Pressure King Pro for his birthday as he likes stews and loves the idea of cooking them quickly. The Power of TV Informercials in the middle of the night obviously works!! When reading through the recipe book I was presently surprised (but not a little bit sceptical) that you could make…

Green Veg Noodles for one in minutes

Ever got home from work and couldnt be bothered to cook? Does Hungryhouse mention you in its tweets? Does Alexa recognise your JustEat orders before you even ask? If you answered yes to any of the above questions then I may just have a recipe that will save you at least a tenner!!! I got…

Raspberry & chocolate brioche pudding

I saw this recipe on come dine with me and just had to try it (well the Dazzler just kept staring at me until I tried to make it). I had no idea where to get the recipe as it was an old episode so last night I raided google and my larder and made…
