Easy Shepherds Pie

Easy Shepherd’s Pie

When drawing up a meal plan for last week, and trying to avoid choosing the same dishes week after week, I realised that I hadn’t made Shepherd’s Pie in, like, forever. So it promptly went on the list, and luckily our local supermarket had lamb mince in store when my husband went for our weekly […] Read more…

Peanut Butter Chicken Traybake

Peanut Butter Chicken Traybake

I’ve been watching Time To Eat on Netflix over the past week, hosted by Nadiya Hussain of Great British Bake Off fame, who is just a pleasure to watch. Besides the massive kitchen envy I get from watching the programme, it’s also had me trying out some new recipes – pretty much everything she cooks […] Read more…

Rice Pudding in a Hurry

Okay, so first of all let me say, that despite referring to it as pudding in the headline, so called ‘Rice Pudding’ is not a pudding for me. In Germany, we call it ‘Milchreis’ (milk rice) and eat it as a main meal. My husband disagrees and insists it’s a dessert. We seem to have […] Read more…

Tuna Tomato Pasta Bake Gluten Free

Tuna & Tomato Pasta Bake

Last week, my 5 year old expressed an interest in helping to cook dinner, so I asked him what he would like to cook and he said tuna pasta. So we made this yummy tuna pasta bake together! Ingredients 400g dried pasta, e.g. penne or fusilli – we always use gluten free, but regular also […] Read more…

Of course, he announced this *after* we’d already done our weekly shop, so we raided our cupboards to see what ingredients we had available, and ended up with a coconut and almond cake. It was so tasty, it only lasted two days… Ingredients 200g unsalted […] Read more…

Apricot Glazed Lamb with Garlic & Rosemary

It’s not been the Easter we had all imagined, but my husband did strike gold when he spotted a leg of lamb at our local supermarket when he was doing our essential weekly shop last week. So we ended up having a lovely Sunday roast to celebrate Easter. In case you want to treat yourself […] Read more…

The Best Chocolate Cookies in the World

Okay, so it may be a little bold to profess these are the best chocolate cookies in the world, but that’s what my 9 year old said when he tasted them and then proceeded to hug me and thank me profusely for baking them. So that’s what I’m going to call them from now on. […] Read more…

Store Cupboard Recipe: Chilli Non Carne

Hey everyone, I hope you are all doing okay. We’re on day two of schools being closed in Scotland, and last night the government announced even further restrictions on movements. With everyone trying not to go out unnecessarily, and changing their shopping and cooking habits, I thought I would share one of our favourite recipes […] Read more…

apple and cinnamon pancakes

Apple & Cinnamon Pancakes (GF)

Listen up folks, Pancake Day is not far off! I wasn’t going to make anything new this year, but last weekend Mr Fox was feeling poorly so I said I’d make pancakes to cheer him up. He loves his apples and so requested apple and cinnamon pancakes, so I experimented a little with our usual […] Read more…
