Spicy Roast Chickpeas

I’m currently on an anti-inflammation diet to try and rid myself of various ailments and looking at what I had to do it seemed quite easy, then I tried it. I didn’t realise how much processed food and snacks I used to go through. In order to find a snack that only used ingredients that … Continue reading

Sweet Potato Hummus

As Wife and I are currently looking at going for an entirely anti-inflammatory diet I’m trying out a few recipes and this one really jumped out at me. I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t like hummus, so with a hit of sweet potato through it, well… The recipe is from a site called … Continue reading

Frozen Yoghurt Blueberries

We all love snacks, they’re just so unhealthy – in the main. As I was trawling the internet for a bit of inspiration I came across this post from Sara on the fluffimama blog, you can see the original for yourselves here, and within minutes I was on my way to the shop to collect … Continue reading

Eggy bread, otherwise known as French Toast, is a classic from childhood. If you were like me however there were never … Continue reading

Simple Salted Caramels

When it comes to confectionery both wife and I can be a little over indulgent at times, a tray of peanut brittle can be devoured in an evening quite easily – well it’s just so moreish. I thought I’d go for something even more indulgent this time and so set about looking for a good … Continue reading

Jim’s Spicy Peanut Brittle

Before we go any further, working with molten sugar can be dangerous so, if you’re not sure, don’t bloody do it! Peanut brittle is an absolute favourite of mine, I’ve loved it since I was a little kid and I think I always will. I’ve been making my own for a bit now and I recently … Continue reading

Cheese & Onion Omelette

I was talking to someone the other day who told me that their 21 year old brother wouldn’t know how to make an omelette. I was shocked but it got me thinking that he’s probably not alone so while I was making myself a little snack today I thought I’d get it on here. You … Continue reading
