Our 7 Day Meal Plan For 2 – WC 12th March 2018

How To Make An Onion And Mushroom Puff Pastry Pizza

I love ready rolled pastry, I think for those quick meal preps or those like me who don’t know how to make their own pastry just yet it is a great item to have in the house. For us it is quick a luxury and doesn’t happen often, we live quite frugal lives and don’t like to spend too much on food. But at £1.30 Tesco’s own brand of puff pastry, you can’t go wrong. I fed 2 people with a large portion and a small side salad and it was great, I halved the pastry to get 2 meals from it. Feeding 4+ you can opt to use the same half and mix with a side salad, coleslaw or… View Post

How To Make Gingerbread Crumb Apple Crumble

As a child I baked quite often with my Grandma, she made everything from cake to trifle. She taught me many things but one of my favourite things was a fruit crumble. I loved the simplicity of the dish and the fullness of the flavour. It was a favourite of mine to eat with a ball of vanilla ice cream. This Christmas I am making this beautiful dish and giving it a festive twist. I love using the basic crumble recipe to create new and exciting dishes.

Rustlers Burger Hacking Challenge

My sister got lucky with my nephew Frankie, his favourite things to eat are fruit, veg and salad. A parent’s dream right? Though while he eats all the fruit he can get his hands on, he lacks on protein from meat. No matter what she tried he would only eat little amounts of meat. This is why we thrilled to take part in this Rustlers Burger Hacking Challenge and really get him involved in his food.

Gingerbread Christmas Tree Biscuits

We are less than a week away from the big day and there is still plenty to do. I will admit that this year Christmas has felt a little different which threw me a little… as you know I love Christmas. After a day shopping Cora was craving a gingerbread man but for the life of us, we couldn’t find one. So once we were home we went to get the ingredients to make our own gingerbread Christmas tree biscuits. The recipe is really straightforward and simple with great results. I used the Be-Ro recipes book and have since I was a child, it was the one my Grandma used and my mum used. So it only seemed fitting that… View Post
