    Tomato and Chorizo Pasta

    Tomato and chorizo pasta is such a tasty dinner! Even the toddler demolished a bowl full and he’s in that horrible picky stage where he will only eat breaded chicken and pasta and screams if there’s any vegetable lumps. He won’t even eat chips! So this has the toddler stamp of approval so it must be pretty good. This was made as I had some chorizo left over from making my paella. I of course use Gluten Free pasta for mine but I make the rest of the family’s with normal pasta. It’s a great “accidental” recipe make and it’s full of healthy veggies too.

    Carrot & Sweet Potato Cakes

    I’ve decided this month I’m going to go as gluten free as I can to see if it helps my stomach at all. My niece has Coeliac disease and it’s supposed to run in the family, I’ve had stomach upsets for years but I always put it down to a bad diet, it’s been a lot better since I changed my diet 2 years ago but I still get the odd flare up and it’s usually when I’ve had pizza or pasta. I do get bloated quite a lot too so even though I know I’m not coeliac, I think I’m definitely sensitive to gluten. I made these potato cakes…

    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. Easy Peasy Spaghetti Bolognese really is just that though. Once upon a time my Bolognese would have been made with sauce from a jar. This way is just as easy though and far healthier! There’s no added salt and there’s so much veg in it. I have my Easy Peasy Spaghetti Bolognese with gluten free pasta and the Bolognese is naturally gluten free. I also enjoy having it with courgetti (spiralised courgette) that’s been…

    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. Every so often she would eat spag bol but it would be pot luck if she ate either the pasta or the bolognese. She never seemed to like both parts at any one time.
