Salmon and Kale Bombs.

Recently I was very pleased to be passed on some kale. A fair amount of kale that needed using quick, so we’ve been going a bit kaletastic.  Salmon and kale = one of those winning combo’s in my mind. It turns out the small people agreed with me and hoovered up their dinner. One happy […]

Lentil and Date Chocolate Brownies. A revelation!

It’s not often I get inspired to make brownies. Don’t get me wrong, I love a brownie, but they generally aren’t the healthiest thing you can bake and once you make a batch you have to eat them, right? So it’s usually flapjack in my cake tin. However this week Miss K brought home a […]

We’ve just had a wonderful week away in France, where all the food was cooked for us. I love being cooked for. One of the days we had rhubarb crumble. Rhubarb is one of those fruits that I adore but don’t cook very often as the rest of the family are not as keen on […]

Low Fat, Slow Cooker Rice Pudding

I’ve become a bit of a rice pudding addict of late. There is something about that creamy goodness that just appeals to me, I love it cold, straight from the fridge, either on it’s own or with some fruit. I usually buy it, but a bit of a shopping failure meant the fridge was bare. […]
