Leftovers Shepherd’s Pie

Leftovers Shepherd’s Pie

After making the Slow Cooker Roasted Shoulder of Lamb I had a decent amount of meat leftover so I decided to make a shepherd’s pie. I hate the thought of food going to waste and I always use up leftovers the next day. Benefits of Using Up Leftovers: IT SAVES YOU MONEY! You basically get (at least) […]

Slow Cooker Roasted Shoulder of Lamb with Garlic & Rosemary and Lamb Gravy

Slow Cooker Roasted Shoulder of Lamb with Garlic & Rosemary and Lamb Gravy

This is another tasty recipe using a cheaper cut of meat. I really like lamb, but it can be quite expensive. The shoulder, however, is very reasonably priced and tasty. I really like slow cooked meat, it’s always wonderfully tender. Using a slow cooker is a really energy efficient way of slow cooking meat, and […]

Leftover Chicken Hot Pot

Leftover Chicken Hot Pot

Bored of always doing the same thing with leftover roast chicken (pies, pastas, sandwiches, or just having it cold) I decided to come up with a new recipe. Leftover lamb and beef can be used up in a shepherd’s or cottage pie, but I didn’t really fancy a mash potato topped dish. So I thought […]

My Fool-Proof Method for Roasting a Chicken: Roast the bird on […]

Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes

A bit bored of having jacket potatoes all the time with roasts, as the healthier (and easier) option to mash or roast potatoes, I decided to search through my cookery books and online for a new way to cook potatoes. The winner: hasselback potatoes! I’d had them before (ready prepared from M&S) so I knew […]

Chocolate Muffins with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Chocolate Muffins with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

This recipe makes really moist, light muffins, with the added decadence of a rich chocolate buttercream frosting, and they’re super easy to make. This recipe makes 12 muffins, so you’ll even have enough to share! I’ve only had a hand-mixer for the past 6 months, but if you intend to make lots of cakes I’d […]
