Spicy turkey meatballs

Meatballs are one of my favourite dishes, and I make loads of different versions! Pre-slimming I used to make a sauce which used cocoa powder and wine and it was a bit of a signature dish, but I have recently gone a bit more back to basics with my meatball sauces, and with this one I definitely think it pays off to keep it simple! It's very garlicky ...

Homemade refried beans (frijoles negros)

I've always been a big fan of refried beans, even when I was a very fussy eater as a child! I love Mexican food, and spent a summer travelling around Mexico 13 years ago.

Top 10 buys when you start Slimming World

It's a big step to start Slimming World- It takes courage to walk into a room full of people that you don't know, and talk about your dietary habits in front of them, it also means that you actually have to face up to that weight on the scales- not only does it tend to be at the end of the day so you can't do the pre-shower empty-stomach weigh, but also ...

Summer picnic- mushroom pizza pasties!

  I was really fussy about vegetables when I was younger, but I've always loved mushrooms- particularly smothered in garlic butter! They are something that I always have in for quick and easy meals because they last so well, are great value and are so versatile.
