Monday Meals – easy mash!

Monday Meals – easy mash!

It’s been a while, I know, but I am back with a Monday Meals – albeit, not a very detailed one! But, it’s mainly to highlight the most AMAZING utensil I’ve had in a long time! My mum went to a Pampered Chef party and brought me back a potato masher. She said the host … Continue reading

Monday Meals – Hot Dog Canoes!

Monday Meals – Hot Dog Canoes!

The rain in the UK is getting me down. It’s getting everyone down. We should be enjoying at least some sunshine, temperatures at around 60 and summer food – BBQ, salad, long, cool drinks.

Okay, so this isn’t a meal at all – but chocolate fills my kitchen this morning – gorgeous Easter Eggs from lovely people! Who says Easter chocolate is for children?! I was lucky enough to receive a package of eggs a few weeks ago from Marks and Spencer, and managed not to eat all of … Continue reading

One Pot Chicken and Couscous

One Pot Chicken and Couscous

Every Monday I’ll bring you a recipe, or something that I’ve eaten out, or someone’s recommendation for some good food! I love cooking. I love eating too. (This is a problem, because I hate exercising, hence my expanded waistline since my skinny twentysomething days!) This recipe, for One Pot Chicken and Couscous,  is one I … Continue reading
