    Sausage Casserole – Oven And Slow Cooker Method

    Sometimes all we want for dinner is something warm and comforting. One of my favourite things before going gluten free was Schwartz Sausage Casserole. Unfortunately the main ingredient in their packet mix is wheat. Because of this, I decided to recreate it in a way I could actually eat. Of course, to make it gluten free, you need to make sure the sausages are safe. I highly recommend Aldi for their range of sausages that are all certified gluten free. And if you are a dieter then they also have a great range for you too! They do low fat pork chipolatas and really tasty chicken ones too! By the…

    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!…

    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…

    Cottage Pie

    Cottage Pie is a proper British classic! You just can’t beat comfort food at this time of the year. There’s nothing better than snuggling up after a dinner full of carby, meaty, gravy covered goodness. Do you know the difference between your Shepherd’s and your Cottage though? So many people don’t, I was quite surprised. For those of your who don’t; It’s down to your meat. Shepherds look after sheep so that’s lamb mince…. Don’t ask me why Cottage is beef though! This dinner 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…

    KFC Style Crispy Chicken

    These KFC Style Crispy Chicken strips are a firm favourite in our house. They taste just as good as their greasy counterparts, if not better! Even the kids agree so they must be good! I do now make my KFC Style crispy chicken with gluten free bread. It means I can eat them without the stomach ache. Something I don’t think I’ll ever manage with the real KFC! You will ideally need a food processor for this recipe to make breadcrumbs. I tried making it using a hand blender once…. It didn’t go too well. We love a Fakeaway and I have more recipes to try. How about a bit…

    Slow Cooker Pork Casserole

    We’ve had crappy weather here lately so a bit of comfort food was definitely needed tonight. There’s nothing better than a veggie filled, Slow Cooker Pork casserole! Any slow cooker meal is the ultimate comfort food in my eyes. A casserole is no exception to that rule. To me, this slow cooker pork casserole is winter in a bowl. I have a few favourite slow cooker meals but another good one for winter is this Pepperpot Stew. There’s just something so warming about a slow cooker meal. It also makes life so much easier too.

    Epic Bacon Cheeseburger – Better Than A Takeaway!

    My Epic Bacon Cheeseburger is one of my favourite Fakeaways. I do a couple of different burgers with different fillings but the main burger meat is always the same and it tastes amazing! My toddler eats pretty much everything we eat so none of my recipes have salt added to them, I don’t feel they need it but add away if you do. My Epic burger is of course a double but you can make the burgers and freeze them for another day. I done this recently and it saved so much time when I was in a hurry!

    Veggie Pasta

    My Veggie Pasta is a recipe I get asked for quite a lot on Instagram. To be completely honest, it is thrown together out out whatever I have in the cupboards and fridge and it changes every time I make it. Tonight though, I tried to take notice of what went in but it is so versatile that you can make it with whatever you have to hand. It’s a great way of using up any wrinkly veg you may have lying around and you can always add some chicken if you wanted some meat in it. Veggie Pasta is a favourite in our house. We have it almost once…

    Chinese Fakeaway Satay Chicken With Peanut Sauce

    Chinese Fakeaway Satay Chicken has got to be one of the greatest discoveries I have made when it comes to healthy food. It all started when we had friends over for dinner and made I a low fat Chinese feast! This was just one of the dishes but it’s now become one of our favourite meals. You can serve it with whatever you fancy but egg fried rice is pretty easy to make. I now make this gluten free by using Tamari instead of soy sauce. Chinese is basically a no-go when you’re gluten free so this makes a great replacement. I also make it Dairy Free by swapping the…
