Ok, so first of all I need to apologise (again) for my lack of blogging. You would be forgiven for thinking that I had disappeared for good! I do have a good excuse this time….I’ve been caught up in the marathon that is moving house!
Chilli Con Carne is one of my favourite dinners. It’s one of the first meals I ever learnt to cook. Aldi have just expanded their range of tinned beans, so I wanted to use them in a new recipe. I really wasn’t sure about substituting the beef for beans. We don’t eat much red meat, but what we do eat – I love!
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.
This cake is really easy, even for a mediocre baker like myself! It’s quite satisfying when you turn it out of the pan – and looks so pretty! If you’re not a fan of almonds, just leave them off the top and substitute the ground almonds in the sponge mix for 100g of self raising flour.
This fajita recipe is perfect. Quick to make, healthy, vegetarian and not a single complaint from the kids! We had two wraps each and although they don’t look it, they are really filling. You could serve them with some tortilla chips, but honestly, we are a greedy bunch here and we were stuffed after eating them! Continue reading “Quorn Chicken Fajitas”
