Turkey enchiladas

I needed some thing quick to make for dinner at work, I was working until at least 9pm, having started at 8:30 am, and had a two hour break in my day. I decided enchiladas would be the perfect solution and would fit in my lunch box easily, I also cooked extra for Ryan too. Chicken was getting somewhat repetitive so I decided to mix it up slightly and used turkey – not much of a switch! The turkey gave a different texture to the enchiladas but turkey itself is a chewy meat according to Ryan (he’s a chef), so […]

Dancing Baby Groot cookies

I’ve had a set of silicone flower pot cake cases for a while now but havenโ€™t used them! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ But recently, I got a dancing Groot cookie cutter from eBay and decided I had to make dancing, flower pot, baby Groot cookie cakes. If you’re not familiar with Groot, he’s one of the main characters from Guardians of the Galaxy and at the end of the movie a baby version of himself dances in a flower pot! – see video… Please excuse the advertisment! I had a few ideas in mind for the ‘cake’ part, i.e. The part that would […]

Chicken and bacon pasta bake

We haven’t been eating a lot of pasta lately, which is sad as it’s one of my favourite things to cook and eat. Ryan has been eating healthier lately and pasta, even wholewheat pasta which we buy, is too high in carbohydrates for his current healthy eating regime. In spite of this he decided to treat himself and I decided to try a different pasta bake to my usual mince meat or lasagne or sausage or tuna etc and made one with chicken and bacon. You will need 200g pasta Jar of tomato and basil sauce or make your own […]

Homemade Beef Burgers

It’s not quite BBQ season, in fact it was snowing this morning. Yes, snowing in April! But this afternoon was very warm, the sun was shining and it was dry the rest of the day. I wish the weather would make up its mind! I only just put my warm jumpers away. Excuse the blurry photo, I was in the back of the car at the time driving to town. We went birthday present shopping, dad bought a load of dvds and blurays, some cheese knives and I came home with nothing! There was nothing I liked enough to buy […]

Marmite Pasta Recipe

I love Marmite. So when my friend showed me this Marmite Pasta recipe, I knew I had to give it a try. It’s perfect for a quick, easy and cheap lunch, and tastes delicious! If you love Marmite that is. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Personally, I’ve never thought to use Marmite in a recipe before and usually have it on toast or in sandwiches. So this made a nice change. ๐Ÿ™‚ My friend also told me about a Marmite recipe book! Which I may have to have a little look for, the next time I venture into town. But for now, I’d like […]

Easter lemon drizzle cake

Happy Easter! ๐Ÿ™‚ Or Happy Monday to those that don’t celebrate it. Today Ryan and I have spent the afternoon at my parents house and had a lovely roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings (thanks mum!). After dinner we had dessert, ate some hot cross buns that dad bought, then played some board games and watched a few films. Mum, Ryan and I also went for a long walk around the village and hiked up a couple of hills. It was muddy, some places too muddy to walk through in the shoes we had on! Note to self to […]
