Cheesy Ham Pasta

This has been a firm family dinner favourite here for years. The Husband and I enjoyed it prior to the kids arriving, and as it’s cheesy pasta, it goes down well with the children, too. It’s my fast and easy go-to meal if we’ve been out all day and I haven’t had time to cook, …

Garden Ponderings

I nearly called this post garden ideas, but then that felt a little misleading as I’m not quite at the ‘ideas’ stage. We started Project Garden a couple of summers ago now, and we’ve made plenty of progress. We now have our wildlife garden, we’ve removed a shed and made room for some fruit and a …

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Lemon Drizzle cake always goes down well in our house. It’s one of those favourites that every single member of my household eats, which is actually quite a rare thing for us. My mum sometimes bakes it for us, and it’s also my nephew’s favourite cake, so his birthday cake is often a lemon drizzle cake. …

Ever since the start of spring, I’ve been obsessing over and noticing …

Choc-Anana Fudge Cake

As I’ve been having a few bursts of creativity lately, I decided to have a go at making up my own cake recipe, and it actually turned out to be delicious! And even better than that, it was really easy to make. I decided to adapt my popular banana loaf recipe and make it a chocolate fudge …

My Kitchen Makeover

We extended our home and had an open plan kitchen diner put in several years ago. Whilst I still love the bright, light room and sense of space I get in there, the decor was looking tired, the paint needed re-doing and I was getting bored of having the same look. I loved the purply colour …

My Dream Home Office

It’s a Wednesday, and so my thoughts turn to #BringBackPaper and all things papery that I am loving right now. OK, so my thoughts are often papery, not just on Wednesdays, but you know what I mean! Today I’m feeling the need to indulge in a little daydreaming, so I do hope you’ll come with me …
