Sweet & sour baked pork meatballs

Sweet & sour baked pork meatballs

I love sweet and sour and I also love meatballs too, so this is a perfect combination for me. I made the sweet and sour sauce to the recipe my Mum once taught me. I think it is really easy and is very reliable too! Keeping those meatballs healthier for us, I have baked mine rather than frying them. I used my Pampered Chef rectangular baker which needs no extra oil at all. It is … Read entire article »

Baked veggie egg nests

Baked veggie egg nests

I used to make baked eggs a lot. It was a standing joke when I first met Cam, my husband that I couldn’t just cook eggs in an ordinary fashion such as fried or poached. My version of egg and chips was homemade potato wedgies, baked eggs in cheese nest usually served on a bed of spinach and baked tomatoes! His version is and to this day (which I enjoy when he cooks it!) is … Read entire article »

Lentil & Leek soup

Well Spring is obviously here but well I love a soup and with colds lingering in our house I decided to mix up three of the onion family, with lentils and a courgette as I had one going a little bit flexible on the end! The result was an extremely tasty and filling soup and I think I can report today I do feel a little less coldy! To make this soup which serves 4 people comfortably … Read entire article »

Cadbury Creme Egg sponge pudding

Cadbury Creme Egg sponge pudding

Oh I do love a Cadbury’s Creme Egg or three and having my Pampered Chef single serving stoneware just the perfect size for a Creme Egg to pop in the middle I had to make it into something rather special. Obviously I don’t expect my readers to have this particular dish so individual pudding basins would be great to use too! This is super easy but will make a gorgeous pudding over Easter and whilst Creme Eggs … Read entire article »

If you are on a diet I suggest that you move along quickly, there is nothing for you to see here!

There was never a moment when I was growing up that the welcome sight of a bottle Lea & Perrins was not in our cupboard at home and indeed in my Nan and Grandad’s cupboard too! There between the jam in the day’s you did not have to keep jam in the fridge, marmalade, Marmite, tomato ketchup and all the other seasonings and condiments stood this lovely bottle with its orange label. Nothing seems to have … Read entire article »

Breakfast Banana Sundae

Breakfast Banana Sundae

Sainsbury’s have asked me to come up with a banana recipe in anticipation for Fair Trade fortnight which starts on the 24th February. All Sainsbury’s banana’s are Fair Trade so you can eat your banana knowing that the farmer’s have been paid fairly! In the morning, if I am not in the mood for toast or cereal I quite often reach for a banana and some natural yoghurt.  With that in mind I decided to go … Read entire article »
