My first ever Quiche

I’ve never made a quiche before. I’m not sure why. Growing up My mum made amazing quiches, often with whatever leftovers she had to hand and these were always delicious. We also both love quiche, and buy these regularly and always enjoy them but I’ve never got round to making my own. One of the…

Smokey Sausage and Bean Casserole

So this is an old favourite but came about as I had lots of leftovers to use up and with the way the world is at the moment we cant afford any waste. Basically this is a one pot (and a pan) wonder and is perfect served with a loaf of fresh baked crusty bread….

Aunty Delia’s nutty brownies

For a while now I’ve been looking for a 3rd recipe to add to flapjacks and cherry scones to make up my new weekend baking routine. I wanted something chocolatey but easy to make and I know I could have made my chocolate fudge cake but I wanted something that was already portioned. So, thanks…

Bulletproof Flapjack recipe

I’ve never been very good at making flapjacks. I think it’s my desire to cram so much in, and my aim to get a crispy flapjack finish that ends up leaving me with something that is either too sloppy or two chewy. Lots of research later and I think (after 5 times of making these…

Cherry scones

Hubby absolutely loves cherry scones and I used to buy these from the shops every time we go out. After a google search though I realised these are actually quick and easy to make and with only 2 tbs added sugar (let’s ignore the glace cherries 😉 ) isn’t that bad for us. So here…

Slow cooker beef curry

My hubby loves old school beef curry. In fact if we ever opt for Chinese he always, infuriatingly to me, orders the curry off the menu. His mum used to make him something similar in a slow cooker so I thought I’d try and recreate this (minus the sultanas she added) I make this first…

My emergency summer fruits crumble

We all mess up from time to time and this recipe is proof that when you do you need to dust yourself off, pick yourself up and get creative. I tried to make a sugar free pavlova at the weekend and it didn’t work. This left me with an icky sloppy mess, some cream and…

No added sugar Rocky Road

I have been hankering after something totally indulgent that doesn’t send me into a carb coma since Christmas. I started to think that rocky road would be an easy option as I can get NAS versions of all the ingredients and wanted to try this to see if it would hit the spot and I…

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…
