A few days ago I saw this recipe and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. I’ll admit, I’ve never actually heard of chicken spaghetti and I have no idea what Velveeta is, but cheese, chicken and mushrooms sounds good to me. (more…)

*sings* These are so amazing, I could eat them every day! Mushrooms, cheese and chorizo! Tralalalala! Ahem. Make these and invite me round for tea. Thanks. (more…)

Are they still cookies and cream if I left out the cream? I did have some in the fridge but it was a week out of date and I didn’t really want to poison Chris’s colleagues. Not when they say such nice things about my baking. (more…)

I have nothing to say about this except I wish I’d made four times as much so I could be stuffing my face with more of it right now. (more…)

I know, I know. Courgette lasagne? Really? Surely it can’t taste that good. Or fill you up at all. In fact, it sounds like a stupid idea. But it’s not! It’s a really good idea! I promise! (more…)

I made another cake recipe of my very own! Look how soft and pillowy they look. They don’t make good pillows though, they squish and you end up with cream cheese on your face. (more…)

I am terrible, TERRIBLE, at making decisions. Shall we go to this restaurant or that restaurant? Should I have cheesecake or sticky toffee pudding? Or the chocolate fondant? Do I really want garlic bread if I’m having pizza? (Yes, yes I do). And it’s not just food decisions I can’t make. Do I want to watch my new, exciting Lovefilm or another episode of the Sopranos?

I always mean to plan the following week’s meals at the weekend and buy all the ingredients so that tea in the week involves the minimum possible amount of stress. What usually happens though, is this:

Me: “Umm… I’ll see what we have in the fridge” (more…)

One pot recipes are my favourite to do. Just cut up the stuff and chuck it in a pan, then leave it to simmer for a bit. Easy! And there’s not even that much to clear up after. Not that I clear up. That’s Chris’s job 😀 Stop feeling sorry for him, I cook him nice food. (more…)

Yesterday, I made my own cake recipe. I have, in the past, taken other cake recipes and, say, added chocolate chips to it, or switched the type of sugar used. But this was actual flour, sugar, butter, etc. quantities. I was scared. What if it didn’t work? Cooking is about being creative, but cake making is about science and, well, I’m bad at science. But it worked! It worked! Look at it! All… cakey! (more…)
