Howdy Peeps, I'm the idiot 🙋♀️ I've been making a broccoli rice casserole for years (I think I saw it on Moneysaving Mom originally). Brilliant for times like these when we want to make the food last. I was just gonna give you the recipe, coz it's easy and cheap but then realised the ton [...]
Hi Peeps! My daughter needed a dessert idea for her catering lessons and we found these gorgeous little pastries.... Easy if you buy puff pastry (of course, the catering student wants to make her own). Also, they have fruit on so are perfectly justifiable! 😉 Fruit and Cream Cheese Pastries from Just A Taste.com They [...]
An Autumn Day
Howdy Peeps! The day started with germs and hailstorms, but got better as the morning went on. I've done lots of cleaning and sorting and holiday prep today. Also, Mr.B is home so we've been tackling a load of paperwork and renewals for bill contracts (that'll be a whole different blog!)...boring but productive. The teenager [...]
Howdy Peeps! It's getting into season for Pomegranates, which I love, so I went looking for recipes to use them. Will totally eat them as they are or on a salad, but I was looking for something different. (Good excuse to buy more, eh?) I was not disappointed! If you go to BBC Good Food [...]
Howdy Friday Peeps!Trying to look for healthy recipes (so I don't eat junk all through my crazy summer shifts) and want them easy and with veggie options (we are a divided house on the whole meat-eating thing). I know, I don't ask for much. LOL! Well I found some trendy one-bowl things that ticked all [...]

I found a cake decorator on YouTube called the Icing Artist and her cakes are amazing... you can find her here. I [...]
Cake, Glorious Cake!
Morning Peeps! I wouldn't exactly call this a recipe blog, but there are some hints, tips and ideas to be had. I'm no artist, but I like crafty stuff and cooking, so baking seems logical. Also, my daughter is taking catering as an option and wants to improve her presentation; so you can often find [...]
Howdy Peeps! My daughter made amazing Focaccia bread this week... ....and I was going to share the school recipe, but like a numpty I deleted it. 😦 So here's a Paul Hollywood version for you to enjoy! (I bet it won't be as good as the one my daughter brought to me at work.) 😉 [...]
Healthy Recipe Ideas
Hey-ho Peeps! Now I'm 3 weeks into new year's health plan and looking for more healthy recipe ideas (please share if you have any). Last year I shared this blog; Healthy Eating, which seems a good place to start. I love a good salad, but get into a groove of the same 2 or 3...but I [...]
Gift Recipe Round-Up
Hey-ho Saturday/Epiphany Peeps! Having dealt with Christmas and New Year's, The shops are straight onto Valentine's and Easter. Think you've had enough food? Ne too, but by Valentine's I might be tempted. So I thought I'd share some recipes that can be used as gifts for any holiday/special occasion. Jenny at This Tiny Blue House [...]
