I’ll let you in on a secret. I much prefer autumn and winter but only because I’m lazy. Hear me out though; I make weekday lunches for me and J every day and it’s so easy to buy cheapy cans of soup from Asda, but in the hotter months, I actually have to put a little bit of effort in!
Recently though, I’ve stumbled on some really simple and easy-to-make recipes which we’ve been absolutely loving, so I’m sharing them with you, in case you’re looking for some summer lunch inspiration 🙂
So this is going to be one of the easiest recipes you’re ever going to make. Seriously. It takes less than 15 minutes, and pretty much all of that is just waiting for the spaghetti to cook!!
Lemon meringue pie is one of my favourite desserts and always reminds me of Sundays spent at my parents’ house having a roast with pudding after. My mum always used to make different puddings every week; I loved her cherry pie and treacle tart too!
As my cake-making confidence is growing, I thought I’d have another stab at making my own cake (well, I say my own, I mean following someone else’s recipe!) And when the latest newsletter from the Happy Foodie popped into my inbox, one particular recipe caught my eye straight away!
If you’re not aware (and I can’t think why on earth you wouldn’t be, unless you’re not from the UK I suppose), it’s only blimmin’ Pancake Day tomorrow!! WHOOP WHOOP!! As you might have guessed, I’m a bit of a pancake fiend. I just absolutely love pancakes. So I thought in celebration of tomorrow, I’d share two of my favourite pancake recipes that you could try out yourselves!
For years I’ve been saying that a lot of people just don’t know how (or can’t be bothered) to cook anymore and it’s bloody terrifying. I did a food technology GCSE and instead of learning basic skills like different ways to make eggs or how to cook different meats, (you know all the important life skills), we spent hours learning about how a microwave works. Yeah thanks education, that really came in handy.
I’m back with my first recipe post of 2017 and I have to say, it’s a blimmin’ delish fish dish. (I’m not even sorry … Well okay, maybe a little bit. I feel ever so slightly ashamed)
I do love a nice fish pie, especially on a cold winter’s evening, and with a nice bit of garlic bread on the side! I like to make this on a Saturday evening so we can have leftovers on Sunday and I don’t have to cook again #resourceful #lazy
Every year my mum makes these amazing Christmas pudding cookies. They taste absolutely incredible and exactly like Christmas pudding, but in cookie form, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you all! (And thanks to my mum for letting me ♥)
My favourite thing about Christmas has to be yule log. I absolutely love it. Especially with a nice glass of milk! The best kind are the ones with the hard chocolate around them, but to be honest, I’m not too fussy!
I’m pretty sure if I didn’t have this blog there’s no way I would have attempted to try making my own yule log, especially as it’s so easy to buy them, but I do love a challenge!
I’m definitely in the Christmas mood now. We’ve bought the goose for Christmas dinner, there’s the remains of a yule log in the fridge waiting to be eaten (recipe will be up next week) and the house is looking beautifully festive.
However; there is one thing missing, a good old Christmassy cocktail. Well eggnog cocktails to be more precise! Because let’s face it, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without them and be honest, who doesn’t love snuggling under a blanket watching Christmas films while drinking eggnog?
