Chicken Pesto Pasta Recipe

We were recently challenged by Eat Natural to come up with a lunch recipe that is easy to grab in the morning and eat when lunchtime comes. Eat Natural already have a single serving cereal, available in Tesco stores priced at 79p,  that is designed for people who want a ‘grab-and-go’, natural and nutritious breakfast so the challenge was to create something just as simple and healthy for lunch. This recipe is…

Marmalade and Apple Tart Recipe

I was recently sent some Mackays Festive Marmalade to try and instead of eating it all on toast I thought I’d use some of it in cooking too and came up with this Marmalade and Apple Tart.

So here’s our Marmalade and Apple Tart Recipe: Ingredients Ready made sweet pastry case 900 g eating apples 1 tablespoon caster sugar 200 g marmalade Instructions Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas…


Children’s Mexican Recipes

We went to Mexico for honeymoon back in 2009 and one of the things we loved about it was the food.

Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins Recipe

LP and I bake all the time now and I always try and think of something new to bake to keep it interesting for her. We had some old bananas to use up and I didn’t fancy making a Banana Loaf again so instead we made Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins. Why should we make Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins? Banana muffins are a really lovely breakfast idea but also…


Halloween Jelly Oranges Recipe

I saw this idea a few years ago but because Hubby and I don’t really ‘do’ Halloween I have never had a chance to put it into practice! But this year LP is learning about Halloween at school and so there is no escaping it! I thought I would make her the Halloween Jelly Oranges as a fairly healthy treat! Here’s our Halloween Jelly Oranges Recipe: Ingredients Pack of sugar free…
