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,…

Pea and Mint Soup.

I’ve had a lovely relaxing day at home catching up. In fact this whole weekend has been like that. Every now and again you need weekends like that where you can recharge your batteries and be prepared to face the next week ahead. I thought I’d try and get ahead and sort out some lunch…

Minced Beef Filo Pie

I’ve really enjoyed today. Even though it has been cold, windy and wet up here in Yorkshire, I have managed to get a few jobs done as well as sitting down by the roaring fire watching TV. Tonight’s dinner called for comfort food. It’s also my daughter’s last weekend before she goes back to uni….

Lighter Spaghetti Carbonara.

As I was driving home from work tonight (which thankfully took me all of 5 minutes) I was feeling shattered. I’ve been working in a local nursery today which I love but is very tiring. It was a massive struggle to get up this morning as it’s so dark. On weeknights when I’ve been at…

Pulled Pork

It’s been the first full day back at work after the Christmas holidays. An early start and a late finish for me means we always need something quick and easy for dinner. This is when my slow cooker comes in useful. I knew that getting used to being back at work after 2 weeks off…

Sausage and Bean Casserole

I lovemaking sausage casseroles in winter, especially as you can put everything into the slow cooker and forget about it for the rest of the day. This morning I’d gone out shopping but wanted to get on with a few jobs when I got home. I wouldn’t be without my slow cooker. I thought something…

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…

Leek and Potato Soup

I love a good bowl of soup. I don’t make it often enough and I should do.  It’s cheap to make, filling and keeps you warm on a cold day. One of my favourite soups is Leek and Potato and thankfully it’s one that the rest of my family will eat, too.  Though in the…

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…
