    Mexican Rice

    This is something I used to cook way before I started “dieting” and now it seems every time I have it on the menu we end up with a takeaway! Tonight, I finally managed to cook it again and I forgot how good it is for a simple, 1 pan dish. It’s a great way of using up wrinkly veg too as you can chuck whatever you fancy in it. You can also make it vegetarian, which I have done many times before, by simply removing the chicken. Also, you can make it as spicy or mild as you like, as with pretty much all my recipes, this is child…

    Easy Peasy Spaghetti Bolognese

    Spaghetti Bolognese is a family classic and everyone has their own way of doing it. I love mine filled with veg and because it’s chopped up quite small even the toddler eats it without much fuss. I have mine with gluten free pasta and the Bolognese is naturally gluten free. I enjoy having it with courgetti (spiralised courgette) that’s been stir fried for a couple of minutes if I don’t fancy stodgy pasta too.

    Slow Cooker Herby Chicken

    Slow Cooker Herby Chicken was a complete experiment that turned out to be one of those much loved recipes! I love my slow cooker and not just during the winter. I decided to have a look through my recipe books to create some new recipes to do in it. This is quite simple but really tasty and makes life so much easier on the days I have work. All I need to do is cook some pasta and serve it up. You could have it with anything though as it’s almost a casserole type dish.

    Curry Loaf

    Curry Loaf is by far one of the best things I make! It’s so simple, only uses a few ingredients and it makes enough to last all week. I have mine with salad for lunch or just on its own as a snack when I’m feeling peckish.

    Cottage Pie

    A classic winter warmer, you just can’t beat proper comfort food. This takes me back to being a child as it was one of my mum’s favourite, easy meals. My recipe is slightly different to my mum’s one but the basics are the same.

    Banana Bars

    This isn’t my usual kind of recipe as it’s a baby led weaning one. Most of my recipes are child friendly and don’t contain any nasties but these literally contain 2 ingredients so are perfect for little fingers.

    Feeding The Small Humans

    Once upon a time, well, a couple of years ago, I would have said my then 8 year old was a fussy eater. She would only eat things in breadcrumbs or other plain and boring, beige food. She would eat spaghetti bolognese every so often but it would be pot luck if she ate either the pasta or the bolognese as she never seemed to like both parts at any one time.

    Eggy Breakfast Muffins

    Eggy Breakfast Muffins are great for so many reasons! They are so simple to make and they are great for using up leftover veg and old eggs. You can put anything you want in them and eat them hot or cold so great for days when you need something quick. As long as you made them the night before that is. They’re naturally Gluten Free and pretty filling. They’re basically just mini omelettes, muffin style! This recipe makes 6 muffins so I usually have 3 at a time. That seems like a reasonable portion to me.
