As you know, I am a bit of a reluctant baker, I’ve always preferred the eating to the actual process of making it. However, this tea loaf is a gem of a bake. Simple, satisfying (to eat and prepare!) and very quick hands on time.
I nearly didn’t write this blog. I was worried that I might sound a bit preachy about shopping on a budget. I also felt that with my food recycling brimming over this week and my meal planning a little thin on the ground, whether I was the best person to be giving such advice!!
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…
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!
For those of you that don’t follow my Instagram page I asked people to vote for their favourite Recipe photo from my cookbook…..so here it is…….Banana & Chocolate Muffins!!
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
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
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…
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…..so, to say thank you, I thought I’d do you another meal planner!
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!
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 –
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!
This seems to have become my go-to ‘cooking for friends’ dinner! I love the fact that it feeds many, I can knock it up in about 15 minutes in the morning, then pop it in the oven an hour before I need it.
