    Easy Chilli Sauce

    I use this sauce for a few different dishes but it also makes a great dipping sauce. It’s hard to find good, healthy sauces so why not make one?! It only takes a couple of minutes to throw together too. You can change the quantities of the ingredients to make more and of course to suit your taste! This should make about 2 portions.

    Cheesy Garlic Stuffed Mushrooms

    These are probably one of my favourite starters ever and it took me ages to realise that of course I can have them as a lunch! They’re easy to make and don’t take long to cook but yet I still forget about them for months on end then all of a sudden they’ll just pop into my mind and I HAVE to have them!

    Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

    I’ve never been much of a hummus fan but I decided to give this a go so I’ve got something a bit different for lunch and now it’s got me thinking about summer picnics down the beach. Shop bought hummus can be quite high in fat so this is a healthier alternative. It also doesn’t take too long to make, as long as you have a food processor of course!

    Smokey Bacon and Chickpea Soup

    Winter is definitely here and for me that means it’s soup weather! I love my chunky vegetable soup but I’m getting a little bored of it so today I decided to try something new and this is what I came up with. It tastes amazing and it’s perfect for warming you up from the inside. Ingredients 200g of cooking bacon, fat removed and cut into small chunks 2 tins chopped tomatoes 1 tin of chickpeas 1 litre vegetable stock 1 medium onion, diced 1 tbsp of smoked paprika 1/2 tsp of chilli flakes 1 tsp of garlic powder 2 tsp of worcestershire sauce 2 tbsp of tomato puree Method (Serves…

    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.

    Homemade Salsa

    We love Mexican food in our house and one thing we always have to have is salsa. The shop bought stuff is nice but it’s nothing compared to a proper homemade salsa! This tastes unbelievably fresh and adds a really nice twist to tacos or fajitas. The first time I made this my daughter said she didn’t want to try it until the sauce was there. I think someone was a little too used to shop bought! She tried it though and that was it, she was hooked. I barely ever buy salsa now, this is cheaper and far tastier.

    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.

    SP Survival Guide

    I love a Slimming World SP day but I can only do 3 or 4 days before I need some pasta or potatoes in my life so I tend to incorporate them as an odd day during the weeks I need an extra boost. For one of my modelling days once, I lost 4lb in 4 days so I could fit into 1 particular dress a little better. I have had times where it doesn’t work as well but 9 out of 10 times, it gives me the loss I need.
