The Ultimate Chilli Con Carne!

Making Chilli has become a bit of an obsession of mine. It’s one of my favourite meals to cook for so many reasons. The ease of chucking the ingredients into a pan and letting it slow cook for hours is brilliant, and the resulting tender, succulent meat and rich flavour is so satisfying. Its a… Continue reading The Ultimate Chilli Con Carne!

Lunchtime Vegetable Wrap!

I swear I must eat this 2 or 3 times a week, and I somehow never seem to tire of it.

Posh ‘Kitchen Sink’ Noodles!

I had no food in the house, but didn’t want to spend ridiculous money on a take-away, so I thought I’d wing it a bit using only store cupboard ingredients (with a few exceptions) I had at the time. I ended up experimenting a bit, and making these noodles. They turned out to be really… Continue reading Posh ‘Kitchen Sink’ Noodles!
