Slowcooked Chicken & Tomato Stuffed Pepper

Temperatures are dropping and the days are becoming shorter, so for us, it means the slow cooker has come out of the dark depths of the cupboard. We’re trying out a variety of savoury dishes for Halloween, a season not normally known for its savoury foods, but I want to have some options available, at …

Welsh Beef Hotpot (Slowcooker)

Growing up in South Africa, I took for granted that meat was meat. We seemed to always have good meat, when we had meat. Moving to England we found the quality of the meat… less than satisfactory. We’d often have a good meal – even in a restaurant – and comment that the meat was …

Quick Pancake Mix Recipe

Through all the milestones of life – birth, breastfeeding, parenting choices, weight management, relationship rise and decline – I try to remain non-judgemental and realise that everyone has their own path to walk, but every year, around this time (early February) my inner judge and jury come out in full force when I walk through …

30 Second Yoghurt With The Easiyo Yoghurt Maker

I’ve been using the Easiyo for a number of years now and last year I posted about how I use the Easiyo along with the Thermomix to make yoghurt for breakfast, and yoghurt pouches for the girls snacks too. I posted a recipe for stewed fruit to have with my daily yoghurt as well as one for a …

DIY Garam Masala

For Garam Masala, I’ve discovered, there are about as many recipes as their are people making it. There isn’t one authentic, or one original recipe, but rather it seems to be a matter of personal choice. For a long time I would say that I didn’t like curries. I think this was because every curry …

DIY Clotted Cream In The Slowcooker Or Crockpot

My brother and sister-in-law came to visit from Australia a few weeks ago, and as you do when people come to visit from not-England, you do the very English thing  of taking them for afternoon tea… although I advise that you should first find out if they wanted a high tea or cream tea because they are very different. …

Three Delicious Frozen Yoghurt Recipes

It’s an ice-cream time of the year, and my kids seem to want some every single day at the moment – one of those side effects of living in a sea side town too: whenever we go to the beach, they think they’re in for a treat. It’s hard to say no too, when all …

45 Things To Do With Ripe Bananas

Bananas drive me crazy. I know that sounds odd, but it’s true. My children love bananas, but the minute they get so much as a black dot on them, they’re “no longer edible”. I decided I had to expand my banana repertoire and find more things to do with ripe bananas. Here are 45 (and counting!) ideas for …
