Macaroni Cheese Pasta Recipe

I always have these ingredients in the house (pasta, flour and milk) so this a great standby-by recipe. Plus it only takes 20 minutes to make.

American Pancakes

This is what we call our “New York Breakfast” (also known as Drop scones and Scotch pancakes). Before Emily, I used to make a Lorraine Pascal’s pancakes.

This recipe makes roughly a...

Cheese and spinach muffins

  These are a great idea to bake if you have a bag of spinach left over and need to think of more creative ways to use it up! These muffins are fab as you can stick them in the freezer and just get them out one at a time. I like to warm them in the microwave for a few mins and the cheese will go gooey again! Prep time: 20 mins (getting into cases takes 5 mins) Cooking time: 20 mins   Ingredients 300g self-raising flour ½ tsp of mustard powder ½ tsp paprika  75g butter 185g grated...

Ham and Cheese muffin recipe

I really started to get back into cooking and baking in a big way again when my daughter was just starting to wean, simply because I knew what was in it - and what wasn’t. Now, it’s more about having something fun to do with her. These muffins never fail to smell amazing when you open the oven door. This is one of my favourite recipes from Tana Ramsay. Once you’ve got your head around the fact that these muffins aren’t sweet, you’ll love them. They’re really easy to make and handy as you can freeze them. I then just get out...
