    Minced Beef Hotpot & Samuel Groves Cookware Review

    There’s something really comforting about an easy one-pot dinner. This Minced Beef Hotpot recipe is just that! When Samuel Groves kindly asked me to review one of their pans I had to choose their casserole pan! The best things about Samuel Groves pans is the fact you can go from hob to oven without having to switch cookware. I was sent the 20cm Stainless Steel Casserole Pan & Lid from their Classic Range. I decided this Minced Beef Hotpot would be the perfect recipe to try the pan out and I wasn’t wrong! It comes packaged in a Samuel Groves named box and inside that was a natural hessian bag.…

    Cheats Mac and Cheese – Chef Parmalat Cooking Cream Review

    I have created this Cheats Mac and Cheese recipe after being asked to review Chef Parmalat UHT cooking cream. I was gifted the product and all opinions are my own and not that of the company. Italian food is mt favourite and even more so when it’s been tinkered with by the Americans! There’s just something comforting about a bowl full of creamy carbs. When Ciao Gusto asked me to come up with a recipe using one of their many products I couldn’t say no! I had a look at the multitude of different products available and I knew exactly what I was going to make… Cheats Mac and Cheese!…

    Fakeaway Salt And Pepper Chicken

    This Fakeaway Salt and Pepper Chicken is one of my absolute favourites. Being Gluten Free is quite easy these days. The choice of bread and cakes in shops is unbelievable and everything tastes nice. Restaurants offer whole Free From Menus now. Eating out is far easier now than it was a few years ago. Every body seems to be realising that people with allergies and intolerances want to eat good food too! One problem I do still come across is takeaways. I can manage to get a chicken Kebab minus the pitta from my local Kebab shop but that’s about it. I haven’t risked an Indian and Chinese is out…

    Rosemary And Garlic Baked Fries

    Making crispy oven baked fries is like winning gold at the Olympics in the slimming community. They do take practice and everyone has their own way. These Rosemary and Garlic Baked Fries are one of my favourite ways of doing them. Air Fryers have become one of the most popular kitchen gadgets but I just don’t have the storage space for one. And quite frankly, I don’t think I could get one big enough to do chips for my whole family! We like a big portion of chips. I have moved over to using oven chips lately, just for convenience but I do still love a good baked chip. I…

    Baked Sweet Potato Onion Bhajis

    We love a curry in our house and these Baked Sweet Potato Onion Bhajis are the perfect side dish! My family love my Easy Chicken Curry which is packed full of healthy veggies. We do tend to turn curry night into a feast though! Even me being gluten free doesn’t stop us having all of the side dishes. These Baked Sweet Potato Onion Bhajis are absolutely delicious. Because they’re baked it makes them healthier than your standard Bhajis. And you can get extra vegetables into the kids without them realising! Ingredients (Makes 6-8+ depending on the size) 1 Medium Sized Sweet Potato 2 Onions 1 Tsp Curry Powder 1 Tsp…

    Roasted Herby Chicken With Sundried Tomato Pasta

    We love a good pasta dish in our house. Mainly because it’s one of the only things the toddler will eat. I’m always trying out different flavour combinations but I don’t always remember to write them down. This Roasted Herby Chicken With Sundried Tomato Pasta I did! This recipe came about as I was trying to use up some Sundried Tomatoes that I had in my fridge. A lot of my recipes come about from me trying to use up leftovers. It’s not crazy if it works! I just love being experimental in the kitchen which is a far throw from what I used to be like! My idea of…

    Healthy Doner Kebab

    Healthy Doner Kebab – Not really words you tend to hear together. But it is possible! I used to quite enjoy a dirty doner after a night out but the diet life put a stop to that… Shortly followed by the Gluten Free life. You just can’t guarantee what’s in one of those huge, rotary lamb slabs. But I’m guessing it’s about 95% fat and the rest is probably breadcrumbs. Even if I could eat gluten, the amount of fat dripping from them now puts me off anyway. I’m just not a fan of proper greasy food any more. It always made me feel rubbish and I refuse to let…

    Chicken Mayonnaise Pasta Salad

    Summer is nearly upon us again… Well it should be but the weather has still been a bit naff! I’m sure this time last year I had the start of a golden tan. But anyway, summer means salads for me. There’s nothing better than nice crisp vegetables when it’s warm out. My only issue is, salad alone just doesn’t fill me up. Which is why I love this Chicken Mayonnaise Pasta Salad. It’s a good mix of stodgy carbs and tasty veggies. I tend to have it with some crispy lettuce leaves too. Mine is made with gluten free pasta but you can make it with normal stuff. Due to…

    Overnight Cake In A Jar – Toffee Apple

    Overnight Cake In a Jar is a different take on Overnight Oats. If you don’t know what overnight oats are then, you have clearly never dieted! The idea is to layer oats, yoghurt and fruit (fresh or frozen) and leave it in the fridge overnight. I have never layered mine though as the oats are usually still chewy. I’m a mix and top kinda gal. Overnight Cake In A Jar is the same concept but with a slight twist. It doesn’t use oats and you can layer it without worrying about chewy oats. As you may be aware, I am gluten free so I have to be careful with cereals.…

    Screaming Chimp – Review & Chimpin Burger Recipe

    Screaming Chimp kindly gifted a variety of their chilli sauces for me to try and review. All thoughts regarding the product are mine and not that of Screaming Chimp. Now that’s out of the way, let’s talk chilli sauce! I love a bit of spice when it comes to food. Unfortunately, I’m the only one in my house that does though. When I was asked if I wanted to try Screaming Chimps sauce, I couldn’t say no. Especially with a name like that! I did ask to try the more mild sauces though so I could include them in my family dinners. They arrived on a perfect day: Chicken burger…
