Cheese & Chilli on Toast

Breakfast. Simple cheese and chilli on sourdough toast. Normally I wouldn’t have sourdough in, this recipe doesn’t require any speciality bread. You could do it on a bagel, on a slice of wholemeal or white bread, on a crumpet if you wanted to. Its about using what you have in. We only have the sourdoughContinue reading “Cheese & Chilli on Toast”

Mexican Inspired Arancini

I hate food waste. When we make big meals we batch cook to freeze half or eat it for lunches during the week. Yesterday I attempted to make a Fakeaway KFC Rice Box because I really had a hankering for one but it wasn’t in the budget to go to KFC. I ended up makingContinue reading “Mexican Inspired Arancini”

Vegetarian Chilli & Jacket Potatos

I don’t eat mince meat, not for any belief or reason other than I despise the way beef mince smells when cooking, its always bothered me. When I met my now husband nearly 10 years ago he was horrified, absolutely horrified that i made all mince dishes with Quorn or Soya Mince. Truthfully if iContinue reading “Vegetarian Chilli & Jacket Potatos”

A little introduction

The world has gone to hell in a handbasket,  i am sure that is a saying… many people are losing their jobs, businesses are closing and we are reaching a crisis.  People can’t afford to feed their children and foodbanks across the world are being utilised more than ever.  I have always cooked for pleasure,Continue reading “A little introduction”
