Passionfruit Cheesecake

One of my favorite restaurants does a passionfruit cheesecake, which is my favourite dessert ever! I can’t afford to go out and eat any more so I thought I would try and recreate it at home. It was actually really easy and simple to make. You will need a cake tin with a removable bottom.

Cheese and Bacon Risotto 

Let me start off my saying, this is the first risotto I have ever made! I was recently watching a cooking show on BBC called The Box (I’m actually a little obsessed with it!), some of the contestants on an episode were making risotto so it inspired me to make one too. I’ve made a cheap and simple one with two of my favourite things in life, cheese and bacon! I have used arborio rice which is used for making risottos or rice puddings but just normal long grain rice will do, plus it is cheaper.

TOP TIP: Never stop stirring!!!!

Serves 4             Costs: 54p a serving

Easy Cheesy Courgette Pasta

This is an ultra cheap meal, 92p a serving! It’s easy to blend down for smaller ones too. I didn’t like courgette until a few months ago, actually I haven’t really tasted it but I’m trying to get my toddler to try everything I can think of and courgette is one green vegetable that she actually likes now. She’s also a big fan of pasta and cheese so this dish is especially for her because she’s been a bit run down with chicken pox the last few days.

Cream Free Spaghetti Carbonara

I love Carbonara but I don’t get to eat it becaue we have a cream hater in the house! I’ve used cheddar instead of parmesan cheese because it costs a lot less. This dish only costs 85p a serving!

Chicken and Stilton Pie

Everyone loves a pie and this one is my personal favourite. I’m not a big Stilton fan but it tastes good in the creamy cheese sauce. This recipe was originally from an Asda free magazine. I haven’t changed it that much. I normally buy readymade pastry because I’m not very good at it but I attempted it and it actually turned out okay… A bit messy but still okay!

Bacon and Pine Nut Macaroni Cheese

Cheese and pasta are two of my favourite foods, I eat cheese every day! So you would think macaroni cheese would be my absolute favourite but I have always found it boring, tasteless and bland. Every time I have cooked it I’ve developed and added things until I finally became happy with it. I’ve added pine nuts and crispy bacon for texture. The cheese sauce isn’t a classic cheese sauce, it’s not really suitable for those on a diet!
