Frozen Fruit Bites

Last week I had some fruit and Greek yogurt which needed using up. I was looking for a different way of getting my calcium and fruit intake in, as well as something sweet to have handy in the freezer for when you feel like you need something. It’s been such a crazy week here that…

Bean Enchiladas

I’ve been in a right tizzy today. Although I’ve only been at work this morning, I’ve been running around like a headless chicken catching up. I’ve also been trying to do some research into a change of career. All pie in the sky at the moment but we’ll see. My husband was going to be…

Chocolate and Salted Caramel Cookies.

I’ve had a day off work today. It was a great opportunity to catch up with my friends over in Leeds for lunch. They’re my cake club lovelies. We met initially through the now disbanded Clandestine Cake Club and got on so well we meet up regularly to put the world to rights over coffee…

Pot Roasted Beef with Roast Potatoes

I’ve had a wonderful Sunday. Very chilled and relaxing. I started off early this morning taking my son to work and came back to bacon and eggs cooked by my hubby. After that I caught up on the ironing, cleaned the bathrooms and then went off out for the afternoon with Mr SmartCookieSam. Although cold,…

Meatballs and Pasta

I’ve really enjoyed not having too much rushing around to do today. It’s been great as I haven’t fancied going out in the bitter cold. I’d rather stay at home. This morning I went to have my hair cut and as there is a lot of grey, it was a big job getting it coloured!…

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

I absolutely love Overnight Oats. They take minutes to prepare just before you go to bed. In the morning you can just take the jar with you to work or eat your breakfast quickly at home. As time is so short at home on a work morning, any quick but healthy breakfasts are a big…

Egg Fried Rice with Cheat’s Sweet and Sour Chicken.

Finally, a day off today! No dinner last night worth writing a blog post about. My dinner consisted of a cheese sandwich at 4pm on my ten minute work break. I was due to go home, feed the dog then drive all the way back to York to pick my son up from work at…

Chocolate Nut Porridge

Another winning breakfast idea from Eat Well For Less which I can definitely recommend. I’ve never thought to have chocolate flavour porridge before, even though I remember seeing it in the shops. But my mouth was watering at the thought of chocolate last Saturday morning as I contemplated a warming and soothing bowl of comfort…

Berry Crumble Bars

As I type I’m struggling to think of what to write tonight. I’ve only been at work for the afternoon but I didn’t get home until 7.30pm. The traffic was absolutely awful. Now I’m sat on the sofa, with a cup of tea and my iPad balanced on my lap. I don’t think it’ll be…

Maraschino Cherry And Cream Cheese Brownies.

I was planning on baking some muffins at the weekend but got on Twitter and saw that last week’s theme for #TwitterBakealong was to bake some brownies with fruit in. #TwitterBakealong is great fun. You bake something connected with that week’s theme then upload a photo to Twitter along with the hashtag. The photo has…
