Cracking Creole Chicken

Another great versatile recipe that can use shop bought Creole seasoning or even Cajun seasoning or to make it extra special, if you have the ingredients or time to get them, you can make your own in 5 minutes and will have plenty left over to use in a variety of recipes.  I’ve calculated this…… Continue reading Cracking Creole Chicken

Truly Taste bud Tickling Turkey and Virtuous Vegetable Cottage Pie

This is a revamped recipe to accommodate Slimming World dieters.  From my calculations it is Syn free if the cheese is used as your Healthy Extra (please double check the calculations and let me know if there are hidden Syns).  You should be able to get about 4 portions and if served with extra veg…… Continue reading Truly Taste bud Tickling Turkey and Virtuous Vegetable Cottage Pie

Mighty Moroccan Mega Lamb Burgers

This is my take on one of Tom Kerridge’s recipes from his diet series.  They are light, gluten free if you need them to be, lower in fat and calories with the clever use of extra vegetables and lean meat but no compromise on flavour.  Great way of sneeking in a bit of extra veg…… Continue reading Mighty Moroccan Mega Lamb Burgers

Spanking Spaghetti with Tingly Tenderstem Broccoli, Garlic and Chilli

As I’m forever watching my weight and cholesterol I usually shy away from too much oil but this dish really does need it.  It is however high in monounsaturated fats which apparently help the high cholesterol battle so it’s not all bad.  This stunningly simple dish is a great little meal and the use of…… Continue reading Spanking Spaghetti with Tingly Tenderstem Broccoli, Garlic and Chilli
