Peanut butter Chocolate truffles

Chocolate, desserts, Vegetarian

If you want an easy peasy little sweet to make, this is the one for you!

Simply do the following:

  1. Mix 250g cream cheese with 50g of peanut butter (or more if you fancy a stronger peanut taste) 2 tbsp powdered sugar and 50g chocolate chips.
  2. Spoon out the mixture and roll into bite size balls. Place these in the fridge to chill
  3. Melt 300g dark chocolate. When melted, cover the balls in chocolate. That’s it! But you can decorate them if you so desire…..I did.

They are quite decedent, very creamy and sweet. My top to you would be to make them slightly smaller tun your tempted to do.

Lemon glazed turkey noodles 

Weight watchers seasonal recipes

Noodles!!!!! 😊

I often swoon at the thought of noddles, I really have an extreme enjoyment for them but paired with Turkey (not a meat I  particularly like), well I just wasn’t sold. However I trooped on and followed the recipe. 

My oh my was I proven wrong! The turkey stayed tender and soaked up the sweet and tangy honey, lemon glaze and the noodles packed a savoury, salty punch. Thoroughly delightful!!!


  1. Fry enough turkey strips for two for 3 minutes
  2. Add a bunch of chopped Spring onions and 200g of mange tout to the turkey and fry for a further 3 minutes
  3. Add the juice of 1/2 a lemon, 2 tbsp honey, salt, pepper and 1 tbsp sesame seeds and fry for an additional 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile boil 150g noodles in water and 2tbsp hoisin sauce until soft
  5. Serve!

Fast, tasty, healthy. Bing, bang, bosh.


Mystery stew

Food, Foodie, Kitchen

I have been a little lax on my household responsibilities over this festive period and haven’t yet done this weeks household shop, but that’s not all bad as its given me an excuse to use up all the things that need eating before either:
A. They go off, or
B. They get thrown for being unhealthy (new year starts Monday for me 😊)

So lastnight I pulled a bag out of the freezer that I had quite literally labeled “yummy liquid to be used for stewing”. So I didn’t really have a clue what it was but had vague memories of it being a stock I had cooked some meat in that was simply soooo tasty, I didn’t want to discard it.

I chopped up some onion, courgette and carrot and fried in olive oil.

I then added some chopped up pork sausages that needed eating, added the mystery stock and left to simmer for around 3 hours.

I made some chips and served the mystery stew with chunky buttered bread…..absolutely beautiful.

It was sooo tasty Gav proclaimed I should enter master chef (I wish), shame I won’t ever know how to recreate the recipe!

*note to self: must label better!!!!!!
