    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…

    Caramel Apple Baked Oats

    Caramel Apple Baked Oats are the perfect autumnal breakfast. Filling and tasty too. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times, I love baked oats! I did go off of them for a while as I was eating them so often. Now though, I’m back on them, just not as often. I decided to go seasonal with them today as it is caramel apple season! I forgot how much I liked cooked apple too, there’s something really homely about it and it just reminds me of apple pie. These Caramel Apple Baked Oats were so tasty and a nice way to sneak a bit of fruit in first…

    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.

    Curry Loaf

    Curry Loaf is by far one of the best things I make! Even if I do say so myself. 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. To make this gluten free you have to check the ingredients. It’s mainly always the rice that you need to check. I used to use the cheapest possible one I could find. Unfortunately, they contain wheat so do be careful.

    Greggs Style Sausage & Bean Bake

    Greggs style Sausage & Bean Bake is a healthier version of a much loved classic! The dieting world has gone mad for “pasty’s” lately and they are bloody lovely so I can understand why!! The humble wrap has become a pastry replacement for slimmers across the country and while in town this morning, smelling the sausage rolls as I was walking past Greggs I wondered what other goodies I could try…. Of course! There’s no reason I can’t make a Greggs Style Sausage & Bean Bake! I have now gone gluten free so I now have even more reason to make things like this as I can’t eat Gregg’s. I…

    Chunky Vegetable Soup

    The weather has turned, the days are shorter and it’s definitely feeling like winter already! That can only mean one thing, it’s soup season!!! There’s nothing better than a bowl of soup on a crappy day and my favourite has always been a tomato based, vegetable one so here’s my Chunky Vegetable creation. You can use any vegetables you fancy really so just see what’s in the cupboard! Root vegetables tend to work best but it’s all about trial and error.

    Chinese Noodle Salad

    Chinese Noodle Salad is one of my favourite lunches as it doesn’t take much prep and tastes delicious. It’s great with salad and will keep you full all afternoon. It can easily be taken out and about in a lunchbox so makes the perfect midweek lunch. I make mine gluten free by using rice noodles and Tamari rather than soy sauce.

    Chicken, Bacon and Mushroom Risotto

    Chicken, bacon and mushroom risotto has got to be one of my favourite meals! It is slightly time consuming as you can’t leave it. But it is so easy and amazingly tasty! Little man was not a fan the 1st time he tried it but since then he’s become a big fan. I just have to spend time picking out the mushrooms! As you do to get toddler’s to eat anything. Rice dishes are always my favourite meals and you can find another great recipe here. I just find these one pan meals so much easier on busy days.
