A Recipe has no soul, YOU as a the cook must bring soul to the recipe.

Pasta Bake
Meat-free Monday treat – Pasta Bake loaded with mushrooms, red pepper, broccoli, onions and mozzarella.

Shepherd’s Pie
This wins on two fronts, the weather is a bit damp here so I wanted something soothing and warm to eat and this is the best way to sneak veggies into my youngest. The meat sauce is loaded with courgette, onions, mushrooms and carrots.

Freezer Thursday
Thursdays are a nightmare for me with picking people up at different times and so I am introducing Freezer Thursday. This day I need food my eldest can cook for herself as she needs to eat earlier than the rest of us.

Chickpea Curry
I love the spicy kick and simplicity of this soup. The autumn days have me hankering for a bowl with large chunks of warm bread.

After a few months of Hello Fresh meals I have a hankering for a good ol’fashioned lasagna, with a rich creamy sauce covered in melted cheese.


I feel meal times are a daily gift to myself. When I get to just be with my family.
