Ultimate Pasta Sauce

I remember going to uni as a naive 18 year old and being utterly horrified by the general gravitation of my cohorts in academia towards jarred, mass produced and frankly horrible pasta sauce. I understood that they were cheap, and convenient, and easily stored at room temperature in the back of a cupboard where they […]

Roast Carrot Hummus

I think I’ve said before that New-Year-New-Youisms can bore right off for me, however I find myself in this early end of 2018 facing some needed changes in the kitchen, in particular by addressing my nutritional intake. Many sources agree that the end to my woes will come from more protein.

Cheat’s Cheesecake

Back in the days when we still cared what we thought about eachother, the Mr and I used to frequently take a Saturday Cookbook challenge and spend a bit of time mulling through my millions of cookbooks to pick a mildly tricky recipe to prepare for eachother for dinner. Awww. It’s been seven years. We […]

The Skinny Thing: Pizza Tortillas

Some time ago I was the subject of some unduly harsh criticism of my general ranking as a Significant Other  after Instagramming evidence that I was about to serve the Mr a weight watchers esque fake pizza for dinner.

Easy Kale Chips

  Following recent dietary requirements and a constant glut of the superfood-that-we-aren’t-allowed-to-call-a-superfood-anymore Kale recipes, I have had several bashes at making  my own kale chips at home. They are pretty simple to do, though you have to pay attention, and make a fine addition to any nibbles plate or weekend sports observation table. If, like […]

The Skinny Thing- Spicy Pilaf

I came up with this frankly brilliant dinner whilst trying to research a weight watchers friendly dish that I could feed to guests on a Friday night without violating the Geneva convention. One serving will set you back maybe 7 smart points or if you are on no count method no more than 3 of […]

The Skinny Thing – Overnight Oats

Thanks to the direction of my Fat Camp instructress D I have a renewed interest in food labels and sugar content and quite frankly this has ruined my breakfast. My current plan involves avoiding anything processed with a sugar content of over 5%. I say ‘current’, this is something I should have maintained since my […]
