Slow Cooker Thai Red Beef Curry
Thai Red Beef Curry is so simple to make in the slowcooker, and is full of vegetables so only needs some steamed rice to accompany it. The curry freezes well, so make double for those nights when you are to busy to cook.

Corn And Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes

Summer was very brief this year, but I took the opportunity to whip up these Raspberry & Chocolate ice cream sandwiches for the few hot days we did have. I love having these on hand in the freezer for a quick, and cool dessert at the end of a hot day. If you've never made your own, give them a try. They are surprisingly easy. . . . #raspberry #chocolate #chocolateicecream #icecream #icecreamlover #icecreamsandwich #homemade #fromscratch #madefromscratch #inthekitchen #freshlymade #fromscratch
Have you ever considered making your own hot chocolate mix? The Princess has decided that all the commercial mixes are far to sweet for her and she has developed her own sugar free version. I've just put her method up on the blog. So with the weather starting to cool, why not whip up a jar for yourself, then you will be ready when the hot chocolate craving strikes. . . . #hotchocolate #snacks #chocolate #vegan #dairyfree #sugarfree #glutenfree #DIY #homemade #gifts #fromscratch #easytomake #madefromscratch #inthekitchen #nosugaradded #norefinedsugar #noaddedsugar #healthytreats
So it's officially the first day of autumn, and the temperatures forecast for the rest of the week are hotter than they have been for most of the summer. There are still some delicious stone fruit around, so I am going to make a large tray of these nectarines in red wine for dessert. They are great hot or cold, so we can enjoy them with ice cream this week.

Day 3 on the zucchini train. Have you tried zoodles? I'll admit I was skeptical, but they are actually really, really good! These Lemon Feta Zucchini Noodles make a great easy dinner on a hot summer evening. And best of all, they use loads of zucchini. . . . #zucchini #zoodles #feta #lemon #noodles #growyourown #growyourownfood #growyourfood #produce #ingredients #seasonal #seasonalfood
Have you ever tried to make your own marshmallows? They are surprisingly easy to make, and are next level compared to anything you can buy in the shops. These ones are flavoured with real strawberry puree, and made without highly refined corn syrup. They are also egg free and gluten free, making them perfect treat for those with multiple allergies or sensitivities. These are a great treat for Valentine's Day, and will be greatly appreciated by anybody you give them to. Promise! #marshmallows #homemademarshmallows #valentinesday #strawberry #makeyourown #eggfree #dairyfree #refinedsugarfree #wheatfree #glutenfree #soyfree
There seems to be a lot of pizza going on in my house at the moment. Probably because it is such a simple meal. Whilst I usually make pizza with a traditional dough crust, when I want a quick and easy meal I will whip up these flatbread pizzas instead. They are great for lunch, and so simple even young kids can assemble their own. Keep some pizza sauce on hand, and freeze some grated cheese, and a meal will never be very far away . . . #pizza #flatbread #flatbreadpizza #dinner #pizzanight #kids #quick #easy #lunch
Sometimes dinner is all about making use of what you have. Rummaging through the freezer today I came across a portion of Beef & Mushroom Stew. I know I have a busy day next Monday, so I will put the stew to good use in these pot pies. All I need to do is slap on a @caremepastry lid, rustle up a few sides and dinner will be done. The stew is reinvented as a new meal with very little effort from me. . . . #dinner #freezer #mealplan #mealprep #leftovers #beef #mushroom #stew #pie #potpie #puffpastry
#slowcooker Coriander #Lime Shredded #Chicken is handy to have in the #freezer for a quick meal. Stuff in into #tacos, #quesadillas and #enchiladas, or just serve it straight over #rice. #dinner #freezer #jerf #wholefood #realfood #paleo
