Too Easy to be true Real Chips

For years I avoided making real deep fried chips.  I grew up with horror stories of wet tea-towels, chip pans that melted and a whole host of other things that can go wrong. That is till about 5 years ago when Nigella changed my life forever. Since then Ive been able to make perfect chips…

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…

Cauliflower Cheese

I’ll let you into a secret – I am not a fan of cauliflower – it started in childhood and whilst other foods have become something i now happily eat I will never choose Cauli.  I do however, thanks most to my hubby, have a secret craving for Cauliflower cheese whenever I have roast chicken….

Happy Brighton Pride everyone

I hope everyone has the most FLABULOUS time this weekend. Ill be there, blowing my whistle, cheering everyone along and enjoying far too much Vodka and Redbull 🙂  

Cherries & Berries Overnight Oats

Im useless at getting organised in the morning. My brain just doesn’t function that early and I always end up either with a bacon roll from Greggs or Marmite toast.  Neither of these are particularly good for me and my doctors have been banging on at me about having porridge for breakfast for years –…

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…

Black and Blue Berry Jam

Full disclosure…. Its been a long time since my last post – in fact I haven’t actually posted anything at all this year so please forgive me for my lack of presence. There are lots of reasons for my absence. Lots has been happening. My day job has been manic, we’ve got a new car,…

Our post Christmas Mexican feast

Merry Christmas to you all. Like me by now you are probably over Christmas food and looking for ANYTHING that doesn’t come with stuffing, gravy and roasted vegetables. I decided that last night was going to be the last night of xmas food and we used up leftovers with nibbles and cocktails.  Today I don’t want…

Lentilicious soup

This recipe was inspired by a trip to my local Coop At this time of year I am desperate to eat wholesome filling food , whilst  also trying to avoid buying lunch at work.  I reckoned soup was they way to go and, believe it or not, I wanted something vegetarian. Now before you all…

Peanut M&M Flapjacks

One of my Hubby’s favourite treats are flapjacks and if I’m being honest I’ve never been totally happy with the way mine turned out.  Don’t get me wrong, he loves them, but I always feel that mine are a little dry and crumbly despite adding lots of fruit to the mix and making sure they…

Lemon Bars

Its Bake off season and we are following along at work with our own version!  For week one we have decided to make tray bakes and as we work for a company that specialises in international markets I thought Id try something different – and after googling and pinteresting I came up with the idea of…

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

I saw the recipe that inspired this whilst I was doing my daily trawl of Pinterest! I could literally spend hours looking through recipes and have amassed somewhat of a collection- so much so that it’s become something of a recipe book for me!! The original recipe caught my eye because it combines chicken, lemons…
