Chicken fajita traybake

Chicken fajitas are a staple in my household- I never get tired of them! It's often a Saturday night dinner for my husband and I, but equally I don't like a meal that involves me standing over a pan on a Saturday night (I'd rather be sitting in front of the fire drinking a glass of wine!). That's why I tried these as a traybake (or sheet pan) style ...

Slow-cooker Chinese pulled pork

I bought a pork shoulder in Morrisons a couple of weeks ago, intending to make a classic pulled pork recipe- I didn't get around to it, and then a friend threw her husband a 40th birthday party that had an AMAZING hog roast, and then gave me a whole leg that was left over! We were just about to head off on holiday, so I took off the meat and managed to ...

Steamed jam sponge mug cake

I recently introduced my 8 year old to mug cakes, and she was blown away- she just couldn't believe that you could achieve such a good cake in just a couple of minutes! I was testing out a few recipes in my new microwave (read about it here!). I made a full fat and sugar chocolate mug cake for my daughter ( I used this recipe), and then I experimen...

Review of the Hotpoint SUPREMECHEF MWH338SX 33 Litre Combination Microwave Oven - Stainless Steel

When we moved into our home in Devon, a converted psychiatric hospital on the edge of the Moors, we inherited a large and pretty ancient Aga. I was so excited about this element of the kitchen because I'd always loved other kitchens I'd visited with the cosiness of an Aga or Rayburn, and because my kitchen is well and truly the heart of my home, it felt ...

Refreshing passion fruit ice-lollies with Arla organic, free-range milk

My family gets through a lot of milk, even when I buy as much as the fridge can hold in my weekly shop, I still end up topping up at least twice a week! I still get whole milk for the girls, even though they are well past their toddler years, as they love the creamy taste. For me, it’s semi-skimmed, although I love a big glass of creamy whole milk! ...

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

Now we have finally moved into summer, it's such a treat to have ice-cream in the freezer, but as much as I love ice-cream, it's something that I rarely indulge in while I am trying to be mindful of what I eat, as it's full of sugar and fat. 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 ...
