What do I do when I’m bored? Get in the kitchen! 😄

I pulled out an old weight watchers recipe book and decided on a beautiful summer dessert in homage to the glorious weather we are having here in Cheshire, U.K.


This is such a satisfying recipe to undertake, watching the egg whites transform into a heavenly, shiny, marshmallowy mix is just such a great thing to experience. 


It’s slightly time consuming but really requires little effort….just some waiting. Once you have mixed the meringue you can take 60minutes for yourself (I watched some “4 in a bed”!) whilst you wait for it too cook and cool. Then it’s simply a matter of filling and rolling.


Now I’m normally quite good at weighting but I had to dive right in and cut a slice. Heaven!!!

It’s a really versatile recipe too, I think next time I plan to make this for friends but I’m going to fall to the darks side and use cream and caramel! 😈

Cod with a summer grilled salad

Fish

Summer is here, we have the reddened skin and smily faces to prove it, and one thing I love more than anything in summer, is the light tasty meals that keep us content. We don’t need steaming hot bowls of soup or the comfort of stodge, it’d s great time to feel healthy!

This dish is a summer doozy, it’s the epitome of simple and its fresh zingy taste makes it a great lunch or dinner for a high temp day.


All you need to do is:

  • Put the griddle on high, slightly oil your asparagus, chopped red peppers and Cod and when hot, griddle for about 3 minutes each side, turning everything in the pan for an even cook.
  • Meanwhile, slice some fresh avocado and a lemon
  • When the fish is cooked and the veg charred, serve it all together with a wedge of lemon and a drizzle of a sticky balsamic glaze.

Beautiful, refreshing and light!

Chorizo is delicious isn’t it? 

I wanted a tasty dinner to end my working week but by the time Friday hits me I need a dinner which quite frankly doesn’t take too much effort. So, I found this easy and fast pasta recipie which has chorizo in and thought, perfect!

Cooking this simply entailed frying and boiling, it could not have been more simple but the outcome was deceptive! A spicy, moorish hug in a bowl.
