Best Ever Lemon & Herb Roast Chicken

Best Ever - Lemon and Herb - Roast Chicken - Recipe - Slimming World - Roast Dinner - Healthy - Roast

Do you ever have one of those recipes that you cook and then obsess over for a full week afterwards? This was one of those for me! I think I probably told everyone I saw for a good seven or eight days about it because I was so pleased (and frankly amazed) at how well it turned out. Think tender, juicey, fall off the bone, roast chicken, infused with garlic-y lemon and herb goodness and encased in a crispy skin which is essentially a meal on its own! Is your mouth watering yet? I know mine is just remembering! Continue Reading…

This Slow Cooker Burrito Bowl recipe is a healthier take on a classic, and is slow cooked in an Instant Pot, making it oh so simple! To keep this super healthy I’ve made it without cheese, but I’ve added that in as an optional extra in the ingredients if you want to add it yourself. Continue Reading…


Crispy Roast Potato & Bolognese Bake

This recipe came together when I was staring into my all but empty fridge, trying to come up with something different to eat. I knew I had some mince in the freezer and my first thought was to make a delicious pasta bolognese, however I’ve eaten a lot of pasta recently and didn’t fancy something so heavy, so I got to thinking. That’s how I put together this Crispy Roast Potato & Bolognese Bake, which combines a rich bolognese sauce, packed with vegetables, with crispy herb covered potatoes, pulled together with a touch of tasty melted cheese. Gorgeous! Continue Reading…


No Waste One Pan Gammon & Bean Bake

No Waste - One Pan Gammon & Bean Bake - Iceland Foods - Slimming World - Syn Free - Healthy - Money Saving Recipe

 

Did you know that UK households waste a massive 7 MILLION TONNES of food every single year? That works out, according to the government agency WRAP, at a loss of £700 per family on average. Just think of what we could all do with that extra £700 each if we simply made an effort to reduce our food waste? Personally it’d go towards a deposit on a house, but you could go on holiday, get a dog, or just put it away for a rainy day. Whatever you’d do with the money, the fact remains that it is ridiculous that we waste so much, something with Iceland believe too, which is why they’ve asked me to come up with a recipe using their food which not only tastes amazing but shows exactly how far one meal can go and how easy it is to reduce waste and save money when cooking! This blog post for my No Waste one Pan Gammon &  Bean Bake doesn’t only give you one recipe, but if you scroll further down gives you TWO MORE recipes for how to use your leftovers and reduce your household waste.  Continue Reading…

Sticky Sesame Chicken Pieces

I’m a huge fan of ‘Fakeaways’ (homemade, healthy takeaways!) because not only are they better for you but they usually taste better too!

If you love Fakeaways as much as I do then this Sticky Sesame Chicken Pieces recipe is going to be perfect for you! Find the recipe and video at the end of the post.  Continue Reading…
