Brown Sugar & Berry Swirl Ice Cream

homemade ice cream recipes

This ice cream is so yummy. Definitely worth the effort. As I know some people would never dream of making their own ice cream, and inform me that Im nuts for making my own lol. They just couldn’t imagine why on earth I would bother lol. So this is the reason I started with WORTH THE EFFORT lol.  I’m not a huge raspberry fan so next time I make this Im going to use strawberries as I prefer strawberries. Oh and strawberries are sooo much cheaper too, another good reason to swap to strawberries

Mexican Pulled Beef

mexican recipes

Cooking the meat very slowly like this makes it so tender in just falls apart. A great throw in the middle if the table and make your own dish. I like meals like this where everyone puts there own together.

This makes a large amount of meat. So if you have left overs. You could use it the next night for mexican spuds YUM. Bake your whole potatoes, slit them open then top with a dob of butter, your beef and salsa left overs, then a big dollop of sour cream and maybe even a sprinkle of cheese. mmmmm that sounds better than the wrap hay lol.

Tofu Sesame Salad

tofu recipes

I cant beleive most peoples reaction to the word TOFU…..Especially my husband lol

But seriously I think we should all eat less meat for our health and the environment. Even if its just ‘Meat Free Monday’ its a start to better health for you and your family. And if your going to have a go at tofu, try a very firm tofu in a salad, such as this one.Continue Reading

Lemon Drizzle Cake

lemon cake recipes

 

Lemon Is one of my favourite flavours, sweet or savoury. I absolutely love lemon season. Even if Im not cooking with lemon, Im happy with lemon in my water.

I ended up with a large amount of lemons given to me this year which was amazing. And I’m not sure what variety of lemon they were but they were the best lemons ever. A really thin skin with not a lot of pith. And the flavour was not as sour as what they normally are. I’m thinking maybe it was a lemonade, Lemon tree. I want one!Continue Reading

Chicken Dumpling Soup

dumpling soup

A nice soup with tasty little cheesy dumplings. It doesn’t look too exciting but its a nice soup. Then again what soup does look exciting lol.

This is also one of the reasons I wanted to start a cooking blog. Because I’m not a chef or food photographer or photoshop expert!. And this soup looks nothing like the picture in the magazine which is always a little disappointing.  Their just lucky it tasted nice. Continue Reading

Pumpkin and Spinach Rotolo Bake

Pumpkin Recipes

A great vegetarian recipe and the family won’t even notice that they are not getting any meat. This is a reasonably easy recipe. And to make it even quicker you can use a jar of store bought pasta sauce. But if you have the time make your own, it always tastes better and you know exactly what’s going into it.Continue Reading

Pumpkin, Fig and Chickpea Salad

pumpkin recipes

This is a really filling salad. And its also a sweet salad which I loved. Im a fan of figs and they were a really nice combination of flavours with the spices and coriander. BUT once again I got complaints from the husband (no surprises here lol). I even questioned myself about posting this recipe, because he hated it so much.But I ate the left overs the next day and I still liked it the next day. I would love  somebody elses opinion on this one.

He didn’t like the honey in it. Um what honey? lol I think he meant the sweetness of the fig. I swear this man thinks he has an allergy to fruit!Continue Reading

Vanilla Slice

vanilla slice

An absolute favourite of mine is vanilla slice. And this is really nice and simple recipe. I got this recipe from one of my favourite cooking mags, super food ideas. I changed it just slightly to suit myself, which is what I like to do with most recipes.  But who doesn’t. Continue Reading

Mushrooms Stuffed with Char-Grilled Vegetables

stuffed mushrooms

I love mushrooms, I am just happy to fry up some mushrooms with a little butter and milk and have them on their own. But even better when I have enough time to get a little fancy. No complaints form the husband either, he liked them also. AND he didn’t ask where his steak was lol. He was happy to eat just the mushrooms. We had two each for our main meal. Continue Reading

Tandoori Chicken Wraps

tandoori chicken wraps

 

These are so yummy and healthy. But honestly you wont even notice your eating healthy. Although my husband did ask where the cheese was. ARRRHHHH. Yes if its a wrap, burger or sandwich, its just not complete without cheese as far as he is concerned lol.

Now I love my cheese, but this does NOT have cheese on it. Unless your my husband, who, YES put cheese on his tandoori chicken wrap. I think you get that little bit of creaminess from your tzatziki. It adds such a cool and refreshing flavour next to the tandoori chicken.Continue Reading
