  • Baked Potato Chips

    Chip long edited

    Let us be honest, potato chips are quite irresistible. However, heavy processing of them has effectively rendered a favourite snack or side dish with very little nutrients and a few nasties in there.

    This recipe of mine is not fancy by any measure but turns our humble potato, skin still on into a homemade version which will be gobbled up (by big and little people) in seconds flat!




  • Whole Chicken Curry Crockpot

    2017-07-03 12.37.55

    It is no secret that I love slow cookers, also know as crock pots! We easily have at least two a week. Being a working mum they literally save my sanity come 5pm.

    Every year we do a special slow-cooker week so I was keen to create something new for this year. Based on the requests of some of my lovely VIP members I made this chicken curry using a whole chicken. Not only does this make it really...

  • Spiced Meat Loaf

    This is a little taster for you of one of the most popular recipes from my first cook book, Healthy Easy Dinners for Busy Mums.

    Meat Loaf

    This meat loaf is an old school recipe with a bit of jazz. The spices and herbs can be easily adjusted to your liking and according to what you have in the cupboard. This can be made in the morning and re-heated for dinner and any leftovers make a great lunch option.
