Apricot and Almond Flapjacks.

Finally getting back to normality, if there is such a thing. Over the weekend I really fancied baking some flapjacks as I have loads of porridge oats in the cupboard. They are meant to be for breakfast though, Sam! But who can resist a chewy flapjack? I can’t, and unfortunately they’re a mega downfall for…

Rosemary Roasted Wedges

Well, hello everyone and I hope you’re having a great weekend. February is well underway now but I’ve not kept up with my blogging so far. I’ve had a very busy week at work and when I’ve got home I’ve been absolutely shattered. I haven’t even had the energy to do my cross stitch and…

Winter Vegetable Soup

A new month and it’s a new set of books to cook and bake from. This time I’m using my much loved Hairy Bikers and Hairy Dieters books to help us with my meal planning and baking throughout February. It will be a bit difficult towards the end of the month as I am going…

The Great British Bake Off Christmas- Luxury Fish Pie.

– SundayDecember10th2017. I was never really keen on fish until I met my husband. As a child I had several experiences with badly cooked fish. This was mainly from my Nana Margaret, my Dad’s mum who was a hopeless cook. I remember the time I threw up when we were on holiday in Scarborough as…

Payday Millionaire- Cheesy Potato Pie.

A few weeks ago  PaymentSense  approached me,  along with several other food bloggers to see if we could help.  The idea was for us to come up with a recipe to serve four people that would cost £5 to make. It could also be a meal which was able to be divided up and either serve 2…

Gordon Rhodes’ Spice Rubs, Crumbs, Stuffings and Sauces.

Last year I discovered the company Gordon Rhodes and their delicious range of spice rubs, crumbs, cooking sauces and stuffings when at the BBC Good Food Show in Harrogate.  I remember buying three of their cooking sauces: a chilli con carne one, another one for pulled pork and a curry one.  All turned into mouthwatering…

Sticky Toffee Loaf Cake With Fudge Icing- from Delia’s Cakes

Gosh, is it really nearly three weeks since my last post?  Well over half term I was away on holiday up on the Isle of Mull, a beautiful part of the world and since I’ve been back I haven’t managed to get anywhere near my laptop.  So better late than never I suppose! Last month I…

Sticky Toffee Apple Pudding- The Great British Bake Off Everyday

Last weekend I was delighted when our neighbour popped round to see us with a couple of carrier bags full of apples picked from their tree.  I was pleased as my own apple tree hadn’t produced anything this year. This was disappointing as although it is a small tree, I did manage to get a…

Dorset Apple Cake

I’m still catching up on all my blog posts and realised I had made this cake over three weeks ago for the Clandestine Cake Club VCake Event which was called “Regional Cakes”.  As I am originally from Nottinghamshire I wanted to find something that reflected my home county’s heritage.  This was easier said than done.  When…
