10 Healthy Recipes

After the excesses of Christmas there is always much talk of diets, detox and New Year’s resolutions. I’m not really a fan of any of these things especially the term diet. To me diets were invented to sell books, classes etc and the problem with them is that as soon as people come off these …

Easy Cheesy Chilli Cob

It was Sunday morning and I just had the urge to make some flavoured bread to go with the soup we were going to have for dinner. It didn’t take me long to decided to make a cheesy chilli loaf as I’d recently received a lovely delivery of Gran Luchito smoked chilli products to try. …

Yes it’s time to get all patriotic again, dig out the bunting and be proud to be British and no I’m not talking about Eurovision (but actually these cakes would be equally good at your Eurovision party!). As a child the Silver Jubilee was an incredibly exciting time and now as a parent it is …

After buying ready prepared dried Mediterranean Vegetable Couscous for a while I realised that it was a piece of cake to make my own and far more economical and more nutritious.  It was also a way of getting my family more interested in eating their pan fried salmon steaks which for years they’d had with …
