I’m going to say now, I am not on a diet but I know lots of people are. And diets are changing, they aren’t about eating like a rabbit and always feeling hungry anymore. Diets and diet foods are changing, and they taste amazing. As my father in law said to me “I didn’t realise I was eating diet food till my clothes became loose! Continue reading
With the good old english summer weather doing what it does best, meal planning has become a real pain in the backside. I want quick and easy but comforting, doesn’t look like the BBQ’s going to be getting any action anytime soon, but I refuse to get my slow cooker out from the back of the kitchen cupboard where it spends its summers, it is almost August after all!

It’s another quick one this week. I love a stir fry, the colours, the flavours and the quick and easy nature of them. As with any of my recipes you can substitute any of ingredients (I made a vegetarian version for my daughter using quorn mince)

So I thought long and hard and decided to share my favourite Sunday roast, with a twist! I originally came across this recipe while raiding my MiL’s very ample recipe book collection, she has more recipe books than Waterstones it truly is an amazing sight! I found it in her copy of Levi Roots, food for friends book and it was an instant hit and has become a Sunday staple – Just don’t forget the Yorkshire puddings!
I’m a sucker for a one pot recipe, I think it comes from years of doing the washing up before I got my beloved dish washer, anything that cut down on washing up always gets my vote! I also love rice dishes and chicken and chorizo is a winning combination in my opinion. So when I found this recipe on the BBC good food site I couldn’t wait to give it a go.
Because of the vast amount of pancakes that we always consume on shrove Tuesday, we always have a light evening meal. Continue reading
This week I was a bit stuck for idea’s, so I had a look in my fridge and had half a jar of salsa left over from the night before, and half a bag of tortilla chips and tortilla chicken was born!
