Spanish tortilla

Simple, filling and delicious, perfect for picnics, summery lunches and lunchboxes! I've been really struggling with lunches recently, I haven't really been planning and therefore end up at lunchtime just making a sandwich because I don't have time for anything else. This week I re-joined my old Slimming World group- with my husband's working patterns ...

Beef stroganoff

Beef stroganoff used to be a real staple in my kitchen years ago, but I had forgotten all about it. I had some sour cream left over from another recipe recently, so decided to have a go at a lean version of it (I used to use a whole tub of sour cream!). I used to mainly flavour it with paprika, but in this version I tried a couple of slightly different ...

Tomato, basil & orzo soup

I've been trying to cook soup more for easy lunches as it's so handy to make in big batches and just reheat, but I do often find that I'm hungry an hour after eating it unless I've had bread with it!

Low-calorie strawberry ice-cream recipe with a surprise ingredient!

I haven't ever had a go at making a healthy alternative, and I love the idea of having a guilt-free ice-cream ...

Eating out in Devon: the hidden gems

I love Devon, and I'm so glad that we moved our family back here 5 years ago, just before my 2nd daughter was born. I wanted my girls to have the same childhood experiences that I did, summers spent on the beach, swimming in the sea, and surrounded by beautiful countryside. I had lived in London since leaving university, and as much as I loved it, it's not ...

Celebrating 'Feaster' with Iceland

A friend said to me a while ago, 'but do you really like Iceland, or do you just have to say you do', and I had to assure her that yes, I really do love Iceland, and finding out about their new products and innovations. Not only do they work so hard to constantly come up with new and exciting products, but they are paving the way for other supermarkets by ...

A lot of luxury at Iceland this Christmas

 Last weekend I was invited up to Iceland's test kitchen to try out some of the luxury foods on offer this Christmas. It was a thoroughly festive day- not only did we have demonstrations from Iceland's head chef Neil Nugent on how to cook our Christmas turkey (including a fantastic smoking and salt-baking method), but we were able to sample mince-pie ...
