Jerk chicken sandwich with chips

This is one of my favourite lazy dinners, usually if I am at home on my own and don't feel like cooking. It feels like a treat but doesn't take much effort at all (especially if you have some leftover Slimming World chips that you can just reheat!) One of the secrets here is the Franks red hot buffalo sauce, it's great if you love HOT food, and only has 1 syn per 3 tablespoons!  

‘Ferrero Rocher’

I have very little willpower when it comes to sweet snacks, and that's why these little truffles are a brilliant thing for me to have on hand. They are so simple to make, and they really do taste like Ferrero Rocher! Satisfyingly crunchy, and quick enough to whip up that you can stop yourself from making a less healthy choice in no time! This recipes has been making the rounds in Slimming World circles for years- I don't know who to credit with the original idea because there are so ...

Fudgy Easter egg chocolate brownies

Ever since I started Slimming World I have held off baking really indulgent treats like this, as I find them very hard to resist! However, with Easter approaching, and seeing lots of amazing Easter bakes on Instagram I really wanted to have a go at making some delicious Easter brownies. Every year my girls' school has an Easter tea, where all of the parents bake cakes to be sold, so I thought this year it was the perfect opportunity to have a go at making some rich, fudgy brownies and ...

Beef dhansak

I tend to go for chicken curries, but this one is a nice change, and has a lovely thick sauce.  


I've never really liked coffee or alcohol based desserts, but tiramisu has always been the exception, something about the consistency of the sponge fingers with the creamy, chocolately topping is just so good! This version uses quark instead of cream, and as sponge fingers are pretty low syn you can create a really lovely dessert for just 5.5 syns!  

Oxo roast potatoes

I kept seeing this recipe pop up in the various Slimming World Facebook pages that I follow, where everyone was raving about it! It's a bit of a change to just spraying the potatoes with Frylight, and makes for a lovely moist inside and crispy outside.  

Chicken katsu curry

I used to work almost next to a Wagamama so it was an occasional lunchtime treat and I could never resist the chicken katsu curry. A little look on the Slimming World app tells me that the proper version is 29.5 syns! In those days, pre-children I wasn't having to worry about my weight, but I'm not sure I could eat the real thing now that I know how high in syns it is. This version has just 3 syns (for the cornflakes, honey and flour) and tastes so authentic- a real treat dinner without ...
