Chocolate Brownie Mug Cake

Mug cakes are so popular right now, they are all over Pinterest and Instagram. When we were in Las Vegas last year we picked up a mug cake recipe book. It’s by Monica Sweeney, there are so many recipes to choose from, but this one is so simple and perfect for a quick sweet treat….

Pork With Cider And Mushroom Sauce

My parents used to make this all the time when I was younger and I never really enjoyed it, I think it’s because i’m not a huge fan of pork. However, at the weekend I was at my parents house scouring their recipes for inspiration, and came across this recipe. I thought I would give…

Greek Chicken Gyros

Happy Sunday everyone, I feel in love with chicken gyros about 7 years ago, when my Husband was a manager at a Greek restaurant. I would go most lunchtimes and take advantage of the free food.

The Best Bolognese Sauce

Spaghetti bolognese is a classic. I can remember my Mum making me and my brother strip to our vests whenever we ate this when we were younger. I usually make mine with penne pasta, just because I find it easier to cook. Grated parmesan over the top is a must!! Ingredients 1 white onion 3…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are amazing, they are crispy round the edges and soft and chewy in the middle, for me they are the perfect combination. You need to be careful as these can go from being raw to burnt in 30 seconds in the oven, I just watch the oven like a hawk until they are…

Halloumi and Courgette Skewers
