I have made no secret about my love for the colder months. But, my ultimate favourite thing about it is the fact I get to eat crumble! I think if I knew when my last meal on Earth was, I’d have crumble for pudding. I love it, especially with a lot of custard on the …
It is the season for apples. If you happen to come across an apple tree, if the apples haven’t fallen already by now then the branches should be laden with them. My parents own an apple tree which supplies them with quite a number each Autumn. They are sweet enough to be eaten as they …
  Following on from last week’s post on 3 healthy breakfast recipes on a budget, I thought I would continue the theme with some ideas for lunch time. Now, lots of people go out for lunch, or end up rushing something whilst sat at a desk working at the same time, but lunch is the …
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, though it is often the most skipped too. A lot of people are so rushed in the morning, that you inevitably end up having a quick slice of toast, or some sugary cereal eaten as fast as possible. But there are so many …

A little tweak on an old favourite, this is a perfect biscuit for the festive season. Pair these with a cup of tea, a Christmas film and some candles, and you can’t go wrong!   I love shortbread. In fact, I actually have to restrain myself from eating the whole tray, especially when they’re still …
As the nights draw in and the days are getting closer, the more we seem to eat comfort food; soups with chunky homemade bread, stews with gravy and mashed potato, chicken with tasty sauces and homemade chips. I think as the seasons change, so does our eating patterns. It almost feels like we’re preparing ourselves …
I hadn’t even heard of tea loaf before I met my (now) husband, but it gets made quite often in our house now. It is a simple recipe with doesn’t contain any fat at all so it would be good as a low fat pudding. There is quite a bit of sugar though!   Ingredients: …
Although I love cooking, I’m also a big fan of easy, quick cooking. Because, at the end of a long working day, I just don’t have the energy or patience to trawl through a complicated recipe that takes a lot of time. I save those for the weekend where I can take my time and …
One of August’s aims was to make a lemon drizzle cake for my husband. I made one, then made another as they’re that good! The best part is the crunchy topping that’s tangy and sweet at the same time. I got this recipe from my father-in-law who is a great baker as well. I don’t …
