Savoury Bread and Butter ‘Pudding’

Yeah, I know, another Cheese and Carb feast in my trusty white dish. Well, I’ll explain. As you know I hate food waste, and we get through a lot of bread, but sometimes we have 1-3 slices left of a loaf which aren’t going to cover us both for breakfast and lunch until our next […]

Store Cupboard Veggie Cottage Pie

I batch cooked a load of cottage pie for tea and lunches this week. I used up A LOT of ingredients from the stores. Things banished from the cupboards include: 100g dried soya mince (a bit of a faff to prepare but so cheap) 1 x 400g tin Haricot Beans 1 x 400g tin cut […]

Tart Me Up or Down Easy Macaroni Cheese

It’s been a while since I last posted a recipe, and this is a household favourite, to the point that I haven’t thought to include it till now because everyone has a Macaroni Cheese recipe, this is mine. To an extent it could be considered healthy because it uses cottage cheese for part of the […]

I am celebrating Tesco’s selling my favourite East End chickpeas and […]

Mixed Berry Rolls

I was inspired to make these after seeing a recipe in the January 2017 issue of the free Tesco magazine. My recipe is basically a slight variation on the one that featured in the magazine, so not a true inspired original recipe. The Tesco recipe is definitely fancier, mine just used what I had. INGREDIENTS […]

How to use up leftover Easter goodies #2 Chocolate Treat Tiffin

This recipe does not include any dried fruit that is more typical of a tiffin as the boy dislikes it. Feel free to add some if you like. I was following a recipe from River Cottage Lover Your Leftovers which is a recipe book I absolutely love. Basically if you have a glut of chocolate, biscuits of […]
