Goats Cheese, Beetroot and Walnut Macaroni

Hi everybody, I did a food inventory of the cupboards and fridge/freezer last night and decided to make use of some things languishing in the cupboards. Like walnuts. I thought about making a cake with them, but the trouble with making a cake with nuts in is only I would eat it (my flat mate […]

How to make oat milk, plus 2 uses for the leftovers

Hi everybody, I recently had a go at making my own oat milk due to having a case of it on order and not wanting to spend any more money than I had to at the shops. I thought to myself ‘How hard can it be?’ as I heard lots of people online say it […]

Food Prep: Black Bean Veggie Chilli

It didn’t seem fair to tell you all about prepping portions of veggie chilli in an earlier blog post if I didn’t show you what I made right? This is a completely lazy chilli. Frozen veg, lazy garlic and lazy chilli. I only used fresh onions because I had fresh onions that needed using. This […]

Store Cupboard Granola (Batch Cooking)

This was inspired by a recipe in Eat Smart by Niomi Smart, which I currently have out on loan from the Library. This recipe relegated from my cupboards my seeds, walnuts and cranberries which has freed up a lot of space. INGREDIENTS 60ml Coconut Oil 125ml Agave Nectar 200g Porridge Oats 260g of mixed nuts, […]

Batch Cooking My Work Lunches: Red Lentil and Coconut Soup

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to batch cook. (Ok, that is not strictly true, I made 2 portions of a swede, cabbage, onion, carrot and pea soup earlier this week, but for various reasons it smelt and tasted bad, we all make mistakes). I have decided to use up what I have […]

5 Ingredient Banana and Peanut Butter Flapjacks: From Bowl of Delicious

Once again lack of time has prevented me from eating my bananas before they went ripe. At this stage you are probably thinking ‘How the f*** do you lack time to eat a banana? They are the natural convenience food?’ Trust me, when you lack the time during the week to keep up with basic […]

The Fabulous Baker Brother’s Spinach Muffins: Batch Cooking

There’s a bit of a story behind this. The boy decided to revolutionise the hallway of our house, this meant I had to find a place for the relegated cook books, the ones I am debating whether to get rid of or not. One was The Fabulous Baker Brothers which I inherited from my step mum. […]

Inspired by Nigella ‘Chop Chop Earl Grey Muffins’ (Batch Cooking my Work Breakfasts)

I decided to watch Saturday Kitchen Live today on BBC 1, a show I surprisingly don’t normally watch, and my watching it today has absolutely nothing to do with my crush on a certain TV chef. One of the segments of the show featured the widely known Nigella Lawson who was making Chai Breakfast Muffins. […]

Batch Cooking my Work Breakfasts: Vegetable Muffins

We have very little remaining of the food budget, and to be fair we only have to last till Friday, but that was after the boy and I had a disagreement about whether we needed to replace the rice krispies in this month, or the next food month. We compromised, the boy and I donated […]
