I didn’t post a gin last month, but we bought two new ones from Aldi in March, So here’s March and April’s Gin of the Month.
Today I’ve made a light, practically carb-free salad using cauliflower. I don’t think I’ve ever had cauliflower raw, and honestly I was a little apprehensive about this recipe. But honestly it was soooo good!
Happy St. David’s Day! This week I thought I’d have a go at making some welsh cakes. I’ve loved Welsh cakes since I first discovered them as a student in Aberystwyth. I know you can pick up a pack for around £1 in Tesco etc. but these are so simple to make and they taste […]
This month’s gin is a fresh tasting Welsh one. I bought a bottle of Brecon Botanicals to try for our house warming party and I was really impressed by it. We’ve got a little left over so no doubt I’ll be enjoying another Welsh G&T for St. David’s Day tomorrow! This gin has won several […]
Avocados are pretty cheap to get hold of, especially when you bag one for 21p on the reduced aisle, but I’ve never cooked one before. So, I thought I’d try something simple. This recipe takes 15minutes to cook and I’ll definitely be making it again. Maybe with some fresh chives next time? I used a […]

Okay, so I’m a little late with this post, you can blame my mad dash to Ikea last night. I love Ikea and I had a list of everything I needed but I hate the Saturday crowds. This week for Foodie Friday I’m sharing my Sugar-Free Spaghetti Bolognese recipe. This was a tricky one for […]
It’s the start of Sugar-Free February! Walking around the supermarket a couple of nights ago I realised how difficult the sugar free challenge is going to be; everything contains sugar – everything! I was originally going to do a Bolognese tonight, but I realised that making a tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes is going to […]
It’s been a pretty miserable week here, I think Blue Monday infected the entire week. We’ve both been ill and I’m still combating flu and a chest infection. So I thought I’d cook something hearty and comforting for Foodie Friday this week, and it fits perfectly with Burns Night if you’re not into haggis. You […]
I bought The Burger book by Paul Gayler about 2 years ago and I never got around to making any of the delicious looking burgers in it. So today, for Foodie Friday, I treated my poorly boyfriend (man flu) to a Ploughman’s Burger. Cooking time: 1 hour 30 mins Serves 4 Ingredients 1 Onion, finely […]
