#lovemyfridge

 

 

It seems I have recipes all over the place at the moment, but I know this is one you’re going to enjoy.  I’ve joined Bosch in their #lovemyfridge campaign and shared with them my favourite leftover recipes.

BOSCH Chicken Honey Mustard Pie 178

Sunday roasts are a regular occurrence for my family, a trait I’ve inherited from my Mum (I still can’t do them as well as Mum can!)  Time being short during the week for hearty family meals I always try and plan to stretch that roast out into a meal for the week.  My recipe for Honey-Mustard Chicken Pie is a great weekend extender – using up leftovers, kept tasty and fresh in a great fridge!

Browse the recipe and add it to your collection – we all need a little bit of #lovemyfridge action!  There’s plenty of other weekend expander recipes from other international bloggers to peruse through. Continue reading

The Great British Bake Off with Stork

 

 

Summer holidays is always bedlam in our house, but it does always mean the start of a new series of The Great British Bake Off – and that’s definitely a reason to be happy!

This year I’m joining in (although without the stress and eagle eyes of Paul and Mary watching over me) and baking along to the Bake Off in partnership with Stork.  You’ll find my recipes over on their website Bake with Stork.

So, if last nights biscuit episode got you in the mood for something savoury then my Blue Cheese Bites might just tickle your fancy…

Officially hailed as ‘one of the best things you’ve ever made Mum!’  I reckon this is a recipe you don’t want to miss out on.  A twist on the classic Millionaires Shortbread but with a brilliant chocolate caramel instead.  Four full batches in our house this week (and I’m sorry to admit I only gave one of those away) – better add the ingredients to your shopping list! xx

Ingredients:

Shortbread

125g butter, softened

50g caster sugar

175g plain flour

Chocolate Caramel

315g condensed milk Continue reading

Cheese & Onion Pie

 

Cheese & Onion Pie 030

 

This has to be one of the very best things to come out of my kitchen – you may have to save me from a Cheese & Onion pie addiction!

I have a great friend, Dor who shared a Cheese & Onion pie with a great group of ladies recently and I have dreamt about it ever since, plus with Father’s Day approaching and knowing my Dad loves this pie as much as I do I knew I had to give it a go. Yes this is my Father’s Day present to my Dad, and no not just the recipe I have him a pie lined up ready to go!

Some of you may know Dor (Doreen Simpson) from her La Difference catering days but she has a new facebook page Dorlicious which I know you’ll love to so if you’re a facebooker please do go and give her a visit, her food and allotment shenanigans are just brilliant.

Now for the recipe for gorgeous short short crumbly pastry and a glorious cheese and onion filling.  No potato in my pie just unadulterated cheese and onion, just how I like them. Continue reading
