Top 10 tips for a junk free picnic

Top 10 tips for a junk free picnic

The sun comes out and we’re embracing the picnic blanket, but eating al fresco doesn’t always mean we put a lot of thought into the food. Picnics are often spur of the moment and see us dashing to the shops and grabbing the nearest ready-made treats you can just break open and thrust into the […]

Feta and sunblush tomato salad

Feta and Sunblush Tomato Salad on feedingboys.co.uk

This is a super speedy salad that was put together on a very muggy hot day at the weekend. Apologies for the lack of food and prop styling, but this was not a planned recipe, more a spur of the moment iPhone snap. Nevertheless as it tasted so fine I wanted to share it. I […]

Healthy mushroom soup

Healthy mushroom soup by Katie Bryson on Feedingboys.co.uk

I’ve had a bit of breathing space from work and i’ve finally got myself back in the kitchen for long enough to do a spot of batch cooking. The fridge was totally out of control with surplus amounts of random vegetables and Greek yogurt from the various recipe work i’ve been doing. It felt good […]

Thai Spiced Yogurt Marinaded Pork

I’ve created a special recipe for Yogurt Week (19-25 May), an event created by The Yogurt Council to blow the horn about one of the UK’s favourite foods. Brits eat enough yogurt every week to fill more than 3.5 Olympic size swimming pools – that’s the same in weight as 737 double decker buses. That is […]

Roasted Tomato and Basil Filo Quiche

Roasted Tomato and Basil Filo Quiche by Katie Bryson on feedingboys.co.uk

I’m a huge fan of the quiche, but i’m really trying to be mindful of my diet at the moment. Pastry, cream and cheese are delicious, but can leave you feeling bloated and uncomfortable. So i’ve given my favourite pastry dish a lighter makeover, hopefully without compromising on flavour. I adore the crispness of filo pastry, […]

Bacon and Egg Puff Tarts

Where would we be without the great British staple of bacon and eggs? If we’ve ever feeling low in this house, that’s our go-to fill the frying pan meal! Me and the boys go streaky, Matthew has his weird veggie bacon, but we’re all happy I’ve taken the classic and i’ve made it into puff […]

Cheese and apple quesadillas

After school snacks are essential in my house, if calories don’t get injected into my boys as soon as they’re out of the playground we get meltdownage, and I mean BIG TIME MELTDOWNAGE ON A THERMO NUCLEAR SCALE. Arlo is still adjusting to his first year of school, and being a summer baby the tiredness […]

Leek and cheddar quiche with coleslaw

Leftover Lunches: Leek and cheese quiche with crunchy coleslaw

A comforting lunchtime treat of shortcrust pastry tart filled with buttery leeks and mature cheddar with a light crunchy coleslaw on the side. I’m still on a mission to banish boring lunchtimes, and have been working in association with Vouchercodes.co.uk to develop a recipe for under £10 that not only perks up a dismal January […]

Spicy Thai noodle soup

Thai noodle soup on feedingboys.co.uk

A tasty Thai inspired soup packed with noodles and pak choi in a light coconut milk, ginger, lime peanut butter and coriander broth… The firefighter’s shifts have meant he’s been around daytimes during the week lately, so i’ve been celebrating this fact by making an effort with bounteous lunches. I spotted a fabulous looking Thai […]

Parsnip soup with parma ham breadsticks

First of all Happy New Year to you all! It’s a huge cliche but I think a lot of us are feeling more than a bit toxic after the grand feasting of the Christmas holidays. I turn 40 this year *gulp*, so I’ve made some resolutions to kick off my fourth decade with a healthier […]
