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…

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…

Salmon, Pea and Broccoli Frittata

It’s been one of those days where everyone was working late. Usually the first person home gets the dinner started. Tonight that didn’t happen. I finished work at 6.00pm and had a 40 minute drive home round the heavily congested York ring road. I phoned my husband as I left work to find he was…

Chilli Beef Pasta Bake.

Every time I make a pasta bake for dinner, it always goes down well. This one has been no exception. From the second Eat Well For Less book, this is a perfect family meal which everyone will love. We had some minced beef lurking in the freezer from before Christmas and some penne. I always…
