Macaroni cheese is one of my all time favourite family suppers, you just can’t beat it for a spot of autumnal comfort food. My mum’s macaroni cheese was always so inviting, especially when she popped some bacon on top with cheese and breadcrumbs and whipped it under the grill until it went crispy. Divine. So […]

Weigh-in number four, and after a fairly naughty weekend, but clawing it back with a frugal week I dropped another two pounds. This brings my total weight loss to 11 pounds since I started four weeks ago. One more week to go of the challenge, but I plan to keep going for the rest of […]

These bite size spaghetti omelettes are perfect for serving up at Christmas parties with a little dip on the side for dunking, or even for a children’s tea. They’re also a great way of using up leftover pasta. I’ve flavoured mine with chopped sundried tomatoes, but you can add whatever you’ve got to hand, ham, […]
