Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

These were a little bit of an experiment, but actually turned out really well and seemed to be a big hit in our house! I would like to add that I made them before joining Slimming World, as they are definitely a naughty but nice treat!

Slimming World: My Journey Starts Here

Slimming World: My Journey Starts Here

I have been thinking about joining my local Slimming World group for a while now, and Wednesday night I finally bit the bullet and went to my local class.  It wasn’t nearly as scary or daunting as I thought it would be, and I am now excited about the start of my Slimming World Journey.

Chocolate Mug Cake

Chocolate Mug Cake

I bought this great recipe book around Christmas time as I though a mug cake was such a fantastic idea! It’s taken me this long to actually try it.  It really does only take 10 minutes to have delicious chocolate cake for one, and hardly any washing up- bonus!

Mini Mummy Makeover

Mini Mummy Makeover

Since having children, I definitely have put myself at the bottom of my priority list.  However, sometimes it gets me down and I need to schedule in some ‘me time’. Following a period of the lurgy, and a looming holiday, I felt it was time for a little mini mummy makeover.

Freezing Chives

Freezing Chives

I love growing things in the garden, and whilst I have been a bit slack this year, my herb garden is still growing strong.  I love the fact that with minimal maintenance I can grow fresh herbs to use in the kitchen, and with a little bit of effort I have enough to last the whole year.  This is the method I use to preserve my chives for an all year round supply.

Wandering in Bluebells

Wandering in Bluebells

It seems like we have had a household of lurgy for ages now! However a few weekends ago I felt it was time for us all to get out of the house and get some fresh air. We are lucky enough to have this wood not too far from us, and this time of year it is carpeted with a beautiful array of bluebells.

Slow Cooker Chocolate Fudge

I’ve been meaning to try cooking fudge in the slow cooker for ages, and only just got round to it.  It’s really easy and the results are yummy! I’m planning on experimenting with different flavours, but to start with I thought i’d stick to a basic chocolate fudge recipe.
