Vegan Watermelon Ice Lollies

Summer is just around the corner! There is nothing better than a nice refreshing ice cream on a hot summers day unless, like my son, you can’t have cows milk. These watermelon ice lollies are a great alternative, they are also free of additives and artificial sugar.

Simple Cheese Straws

This is a great recipe to make with kids, plus my two love eating them as a snack! You can add extras such as herbs, sesame seeds or even different types of cheese. With the leftover dough I used a small cutter to make biscuits.

Eating on a budget A-Z

Apples – Try being versatile with popular food items. As well as making treats like apple crisps or apple crumble, you can also try adding grated apple to a curry instead of mango chutney.

Bananas – We are all guilty of wasting bananas so why not try some of these recipes with your squidgy bananas. Banana and oat pancakes and banana bread.

Cornish Pasty – Pasties are great for using up any leftover meat or vegetables. Why not try my cheese and bacon pasty?

Simple Biscuits

These cookies were made by my 3 year daughter. They only require 3 ingredients so as you would imagine, they are very cheap and easy to make. We put jam inbetween two of ours but you could cut them out in any shape, ice them or even add chocolate chips!

Flower Lunch Box Ideas

I have been posting pictures of my 3 year old daughter’s packed lunches on my Facebook page for quite a while but I have never put them on my blog so here is one!

When she first started nursery, she had their cooked meals but after a few weeks it came apparent that she wasn’t enjoying them. So she has been having packed lunches ever since!

I don’t have any fancy equipment, just a few cookie cutters, eye picks and plastic pots. All of the lunches take under 10 minute and just me a bit of creativity and imagination! I also try and make them cheap and keep waste to a minimum. They include stuff she likes (she changes her mind everyday!) and at least one thing she either hasn’t tried or isn’t that keen on.

This lunch was inspired by the biscuits she made the day before and insisted to have it for lunch at school to show all her friends.

  • Ham and cheese sandwich
  • Pepperoni
  • Kiwi fruit
  • Homemade jam biscuit

More or less everyone I know is attending Slimming World (apart from myself!), so I thought I would try some recipes and I have been impressed. Recently I attempted to make a Slimming World cake and I found it too bitter so I developed this one which I much prefer. I worked it out as 1 syn per slice but please correct me if I’m wrong!

Make It Gluten free review 

The last few months I have been experimenting with gluten free baking, it hasn’t gone well! I had more or less given up on the idea of successfully baking anything edible for my family when I was offered the chance to review some gluten free mixes from Make It Gluten Free.

Homemade Naan Bread

Do you ever get stuck in a rut of just buying something ready made from the shop instead of making it yourself? This is exactly what I have been doing with naan bread! When I found out they were incredibly cheap and easy to make, I haven’t brought any since.
