Golden Delicious – trying vegetarian on for size

Last year I tried a few methods to help me feel fuller for longer. On my quest to find healthy alternative ingredients to fit in with our lifestyle, can sometimes prove difficult, as we all love meat in our diet. Which is why, when I was offered the opportunity to sample Seba’s Golden Goodness Soya…

I don’t know what to think of The Masked Singer, do you?

Anyone else feeling a bit WTF with the ITV music show that everyone is talking about? Everyone is baffled as they try and figure out who is behind the masks. The judges are a mix-match too, who thought up them as a team to judge? Weird. It’s all very weird though to be honest. Like,…

Sweet Chilli Fishcakes Stir Fry

Feeling fishy? Well we were in our house. Not sure why we had so many salmon fishcakes from Tesco, but whilst defrosting the freezer, I found a load and decided that would be next days dinner. Except, naughty it came to the afternoon and I decided I didn’t fancy salmon, spinach & lemon fishcakes at…

Shake up your Brussel Sprouts game with this recipe…

I ate Brussel sprouts last weekend. I know. Doesn’t seem much to you, but it’s a first for me. Those little fart balls have always been a hell no for me but I shook up this side dish so that all the family can tuck in and enjoy last weekend. And I loved it. Does…

New Amsterdam is my new guilty pleasure

Business Insider named it one of the worst 8 network tv shows last year, The Atlantic said it is ‘an atrocious portrayal of medicine,’ in all honestly, if you type “New Amsterdam” into Google search, you’ll find a host of other big named newspapers and magazines equally saying the show is terrible for various reasons….

And just like that Christmas is over…

I can’t believe Christmas has been and gone and we’re just a few days away until 2020. Seriously, how fast has this year gone? It’s been a great Christmas with family and friends, but I’ll admit, I am looking forward to getting back into a routine. It’s that weird part of the year in between…

Eggless Galaxy Brownies

Sam’s nephew is allergic to eggs but loves chocolate, who doesn’t? But trying to find a good brownie recipe that replaces the egg with something else but still gives that glorious fudge texture, can be really difficult. Last year I found a recipe through a vegan website called Northern Veg and tried it, Seth loved it and…

I have done my Christmas Shopping. There, I said it.

Let’s settle this now… It’s never too early to start. Ever. 10 years ago, I think I would of waited until 7pm Christmas Eve, to drag myself to some hell of a high street and just do it. A rush buy for all the family. Fast forward to the beginning of December and I can…

And just like that, Emily turns 3.

Hello Three. Wild and three. Who can believe my little, but not so little, Emily is now three. Gosh, hasn’t that time flown? I’m really not sure where that time has gone. It’s gone by way too quickly. Like a flash if I’m honest. I can still remember being told in a swift jiffy that…

Rolled Lamb breast, seriously what is that all about?

I was in Asda a few weeks ago, and I saw two rolled lamb joints that took my fancy. I’ve never made rolled lamb before, but I was definitely up for the challenge. But what on earth? There’s me thinking lamb is lamb. Lamb mince is lush in a shepherds pie or lamb Kofta, lamb…

Sunflowers and Smiles

A couple of months ago with what seems like an eternity, the weather was glorious. For a few days there was some really harsh days of rain, so it was nice that one afternoon able to go out in a light sweater and enjoy the day. It was also the perfect day to visit the…

I was in the Minor Injuries Unit, this time for me!

What is it with us and hospitals recently? Last month, Emily was rushed to hospital with a high temperature and suspected sepsis of the lung, that thankfully was just a chest infection. But still a terrifying 13 hours. Roll on a few weeks, and I was in Deal’s minor injuries unit for my eye for…
