    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…

    Homemade Scotch Eggs

    Homemade Scotch Eggs make a great lunchbox filler and are definitely one of my favourite lunches! Mr takes them to work and his colleagues always comment on how good they look. They’re also great for picnics along with mini quiches! They do take a bit of practice but they’re easier to make than I ever thought! If I can do it then anyone can. I try to keep the egg on the soft side as I love having a gooey middle! You can easily make these gluten free by using the right ingredients too. Always check your sausages as many aren’t gluten free!

    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…

    French Toast Doughnuts

    I had to wait for breakfast this morning as I was missing an essential part of my french toast doughnuts….. the bread! It was so worth the wait though as these are delicious! They’re definitely a healthier version of a doughnut but also a nicer way of doing French Toast! They’re also really simple to make. Of course, mine are now made gluten free using gluten free bread. I found the best non-gluten free bread is the Crustless one by Kingsmill. This also removes the first step for you! I have made chocolate French Toast Doughnuts but you can also do this with jam. They come out just as tasty…

    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…

    Mini Crustless Quiches

    I love these mini quiches as an easy, batch cooked, take to work lunch. They’re gluten free, low fat and really tasty! The recipe makes 12 so they last a couple of days in the fridge and they’re a great way of using up some of the wrinkly veg you may have lying around. I don’t like cottage cheese on its own so please don’t be put off if you’re like me in that sense, honestly, you won’t be able to tell once they’re cooked!

    Melt In The Middle Baked Oats

    Baked oats have got to be one of my favourite breakfasts. I ate them a bit too often at one point and got a bit sick of them but after a short break, I’m now loving them again. They’re not a breakfast you can make if you’re in a rush as they take a while to cook but you can always make them the night before. They’re so versatile, you can experiment with different flavour combinations by simply changing the flavour of the yoghurt or other fillings. I have quite a few different variations on my blog these days. A couple of my other favourites are Caramel Apple and Lemon Drizzle. Here’s my…
