Super Savvy Meal Planner #3

Lots of budget food writers price up their meals by only counting the proportion of the ingredient used. For example; if you were pricing up a meal that included 1 egg, and a box of 6 eggs costs 89p, you would only include 15p in the total. Boring I know, but bare with me…..

Clementine Cheesecake

I’m not usually one for lengthy recipes, but if you can’t get a little bit fancy at Christmas, when can you?

3 Simple Christmas Party Bakes

My list of jobs to do between now and Christmas is only getting longer. I’ve got presents still to buy, food to prep (and buy), Christmas concerts to go to, house to spruce……having said this, I am still desperate to fit in

Irish Cream Chocolate Pots

Ballycastle Irish Cream is the Aldi version of Baileys. It looks and tastes exactly like Baileys, with one crucial difference. It’s only £3.75 a bottle rather than £11 a bottle! (this was the cheapest Baileys I could find )

Goat’s Cheese, Parma Ham & Spinach Gnocchi

It’s great to make your own gnocchi, it’s pretty savvy too, using simple, minimal ingredients. The only problem is, it’s a bit time consuming and fiddly. I debated whether or not to put a simple recipe for gnocchi on here and pretend that I make my own……honesty prevailed and actually, I don’t think using ready…

Slow Cooker Beef & Coconut Curry

I get messages every day asking for slow cooker recipes……..I’ve always been a little bit reluctant to post any, as not everybody has one…….As you can see I’ve changed my mind!

Banana & Chocolate Muffins

For those of you that don’t follow my Instagram page I asked people to vote for their favourite Recipe photo from my cookbook… here it is…….Banana & Chocolate Muffins!!

The Savvy Shopper’s Weekly Meal Plan

So here it is, as promised, the second of my #7daysofsavvy meal plans. 7 days, 7 dinners. All the meals are recipes from my cookbook and all are quick, tasty midweek dinners for 4 people…….and the shopping list comes to the grand total of £33!!! As before, I’ve

10 Minute Spaghetti Carbonara

What a weird week it’s been weather wise….it’s so hard to know what to cook. We’ve gone from ‘i’m too hot to even contemplate eating’, to comfort food and jumpers. I’m trying really hard at this very moment to stop myself giving the heating a quick blast. My current view

Broccoli, Gorgonzola & Walnut Pie

I came up with this recipe about a year ago. It was one of those recipes that just wrote itself. I usually like to obsess about a recipe/ingredients/method, for at least a week before I actually cook anything! This time, I knew exactly what I wanted to make and could even imagine how it would…

#7daysofsavvy Meal Planner

It’s a month today since my cookbook came out, and I’ve been completely blown away by all of the messages I’ve received from you, saying how much you like the recipes and the weekly meal planner in the front of the book…, to say thank you, I thought I’d do you another meal planner!

Red Pesto & Ham Bakes

Half Term next week….so that means we’ve lived in Cornwall for a whole 6 weeks! We couldn’t have moved at a better time weather-wise. Beautiful country walks up to the school and long lazy days weekends on the beach……I’m trying not to think about October when the damp and mist will set in!

Strawberries & Cream Swiss Roll

A couple of weeks back I decided to bake a swiss roll. To be honest i don’t massively enjoy baking. The bakes in my book are mostly ones that I have cooked for years – so are not stress inducing. Usually, any new bakes, are a cupboard slamming, sweary process –

Rosemary & Salt Crackers

What a busy few weeks it’s been. We’re all still settling into Cornish life – new house, new school….and my book came out last week!  Everything still seems so new. The past few weeks have bought daily excitement, stresses…….and challenges, so I am now at the stage, that I am craving some normal!
