Lamb and Beef Kebabs

Mince lamb and beef kebabs

We’ve had the most amazing summer this year, and I’ve made these several times. You can make them with just lamb, or just beef mince but I like the combination. The only way to mix them is to get your hands into the mixture. I challenge you to try these rather than the shop bought … Continue reading Lamb and Beef Kebabs

Potato Salad

Potato Salad

Early season potatoes are the best for this, and it’s a great side for my Lamb and Beef Kebabs. My hubby doesn’t like the mayo loaded potato salads that are commonly available; so I make this version for him, and if I’m honest I prefer it now myself. I often make it and take it … Continue reading Potato Salad

Carrot and Cumin Salad

I sent a portion to a friend who was recuperating in hospital, I packed some curry along with basmati rice and popped in into a tiffin box to … Continue reading Summer Greens, Beans and Lentil Curry

Oat and Apricot Savoury Biscuits

Oat and Apricot Biscuit

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that these biscuits were created entirely by accident, however, once I got over the shock of them not being sweet they were actually quite nice.!! We ate them with a bit of cheddar as a snack and even my husband, who normally turns his nose up … Continue reading Oat and Apricot Savoury Biscuits

Coconut, Oat and Apricot Vegan Biscuits

Coconut, Oat and Apricot Biscuit

Coconut, Oat and Apricot Vegan Biscuits These biscuits are quite crumbly so you definitely need a nice cup of tea to go with them, but then who wants to eat a biscuit without a cuppa???? I don’t really have a sweet tooth so they are great for me, however if you do like your biscuits … Continue reading Coconut, Oat and Apricot Vegan Biscuits
