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….

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…

Spicy Chinese Pork Stir Fry

I have a newfound love for pork mince at the moment. I can do so much with it. The other week it was pork and courgette meatballs this week it’s all about how easy it can sort out a quick and simple dinner packed with veggies and flavour. This dish was a last minute dish…

Tarragon and Mint Chicken Casserole

I love this dish. My mum made it for me after experimenting in her kitchen one evening bored. I tried it, fell in love and have cooked it for Sam who loves it as much as I do. You don’t need much tarragon and dried works so much better for giving the flavour instead of…

Spaghetti Bolognese on a budget

Cooking on a budget is possible when feeding the family. Everything in this dish was already in my cupboard. If you buy dried herbs they last longer, same as a pack of onions over the bigger 3-pack you get in supermarkets. You can use frozen onions and peppers if preferred and all the sauces and…

Pork Ragu

This slow cooked minced Pork Ragu packs a punch with flavour and it’s just yummy. I’ve always made my ragu with beef & pork mince but as I didn’t have any beef mince this little winner was made instead. To be honest cooking a pork Ragu isn’t unheard off, the Italians have done it many…

Soft play on rainy days – what fresh hell is this?

Soft play. It’s two words dreaded by parents but loved by children of all ages. It’s a bizarre place where adults take their children in a desperate bid to exhaust themselves. This is what I did on Sunday. It chucked it down Saturday night and continued to do so throughout the morning. With mum down…

Greek Potatoes

These were delicious. I loved them so much, I’ve made them a few times since and still can’t get enough of them. Preparation: 20 minutes Roasting: 35-45 minutes  Ingredients:  • 1KG Potatoes, peeled, diced • 4 garlic cloves, minced • Salt and pepper to season • 3 tbsp dried oregano • 1/4 cup chicken broth…

Irish Sausage with Mushroom and Onion Gravy with Colcannon

 I hate waste, it’s something that’s been instilled in me since I was a kid. There is no need to waste, so why do it? So with my white cabbage, red cabbage, potatoes and spring onions I needed something to cook that will use up all three and what better way than to make the…

Sea Bass with a Greek twist

For years fish never really did it for me. Even though my mum insisted it was healthy, I always said I hated fish. Weirdly a bad experience was for life and all I’d accept fish wise was fish fingers. Strange, seeing as some fish fingers aren’t exactly all fish. But, when I became pregnant, I…
