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…

Flabulous Yorkshire Puddings – every time

Jamie Oliver saved me from crap Yorkies several years ago. Before I was under the misapprehension that Yorkie mix was the same as pancake mix but I was soooo wrong. This always left me with flat doughy, puddings that were frankly an embarrasment. Jamie’s recipe is so simple and honestly works for me every time….

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…
