Sausage and apple toad in the hole

Sausage and apple toad in the hole on feedingboys.co.uk

Waitrose are championing the British apple this month, and will be stocking loads of home grown varieties that you may  not have heard of like Estivale and Suffolk Pink. Do you tend to stick to the same varieties no matter how far they’ve travelled? Well I’ve been challenged by Waitrose to try using a British […]

Winter one pot recipes

Mediterranean vegetable bake - photo by Sharron Gibson

If there’s ever a time for one pot recipes that you can sling in the oven with minimal fuss, then it has to be now. First week back after half term and we’re all trying to adjust back into functioning on a schedule, rather than schlepping around in PJs for the best part of the […]

Sausage, cider and potato pie

Hello lovely pie...

Matthew was away and his parents were in town, the meat eaters out numbered the lone veggie… so I decided to knock out some flesh dishes… we had roast beef and yorkshires one night, and the next I made this FABULOUS pie! I nabbed the recipe from the Pieminister cook book which is on my […]

Adventures with a slow cooker

Flavour Savour Digital Slow Cooker

Bunging a load of ingredients in a casserole and then leaving it to transform itself into a one-pot wonder, is my kind of cooking. It’s not glamorous but it’s highly practical. There are so many plus points: You can do the preparation hours in advance avoiding that stressful witching hour just before serving up a […]

Roasted sausages with rosemary potatoes and a disgusting pudding!

A one pot supper - no messin'

Playdate food can be a minefield when you’re catering for other people’s kids. You know what your kids like, but their friends are another matter. And let’s face it, all kids have their foibles when it comes to grub. My boys are pretty good eaters, but will take sudden loud dislike to random things like […]

First I bought you pimped up mash, now I’m unleashing tarted up sausages – and this is meant to be a family show! I cook sausages once a week for my boys, they really REALLY love them. They’re not the healthiest of foods, and are processed, but they’re irresistible. And after a long day when […]

Toad in the hole

Toad in the hole – a golden oldie but a classic!! It’s a guaranteed hit – what’s not to love?! Juicy bangers encased in a festival of Yorkshire pudding. It’s not remotely diet friendly – but perfect fodder for hungry boys and my husband who’d rowed 21 miles up the Thames! Toad in the hole […]

I’m writing this entry through the fog of extreme fatigue. The boys wouldn’t go to bed last night and then Arlo screamed non-stop from about 4.30am – delightful. I feel rough as a badger’s behind. Anyway, enough of my whinging. On a more positive note, last night’s dinner worked well. You know you’re in with […]
