Impossible Brownies Recipe

This recipe is called impossible brownies because it shouldn’t work. It really shouldn’t! Brownies are traditionally made with butter, eggs, flour, and refined sugar, but these brownies have none of this stuff and instead are packed full of fibre and vegetable protein. The beetroot and chickpeas give the brownies a squishy texture even after they’ve …

Simple Chicken Traybake

The beauty of this simple chicken traybake is that once it’s assembled you just bake it in the oven and wait while the delicious smells fill the house.

Vegetarian Bean Chilli With Rice – Recipe

I’ve done the research on this recipe and have a Slimming World, Weight Watchers, and calorie count so that if you decide to make this vegetarian bean chilli with rice you’ll know exactly what you’re dealing with. You will want to allow 100g of cooked white rice per person to add to the meal; this …

Sugar-free Flapjacks

“An é seo folláin?”/”Is this wholesome?” My 5-year-old requires absolute honesty when we go shopping together. He won’t buy anything unless it’s “folláin” (the Irish word for wholesome). As I call out items from the list and he wanders around the supermarket; he’ll pick up items, and check the wholesome factor. It wasn’t always like …

Eton Mess

There are days that I love nothing more than working in the kitchen on “oven watch”. These type of days are when I’m not stuck at my computer for hours on end, and the sun isn’t splitting the stones. Lately though, with the sunny weather and my two boys being that bit older all they …

Take 1 Chicken, Meal 2 of 3

This is the second in a series of 3 blog posts where I’m sharing recipes for a family of 5 for under 63c per portion, based on 1 roast chicken. For the shopping list, and first recipe, check out my first post from Sunday evening “Take 1 Chicken, Meal 1 of 3“.

Take 1 Chicken, Meal 1 of 3

I have this thing about roast chicken. Maybe it’s something from my childhood but the smell of a roasting chicken in the oven makes me feel like a Bisto kid when I walk into a house. It’s the ultimate Sunday roast for me, and I normally cook it once or twice a fortnight. Most people …

Fish And Chips

Fish and chips; not the most thrifty meal if you go to the local chipper, nor is it the most healthy either. Don’t get me wrong, there is a certain allure of a brown paper bag laden with piping hot chips, salt and vinegar every now and again. If you’re feeding a family that sort …

Gluten Free Bargains In Lidl

I do try to eat a lower gluten diet than most. Simply because it doesn’t always agree with me.  Still, it is expensive to eat certain things if you’re on a gluten-free diet and Lidl have some gluten-free bargains this week that are well worth a look.

Steamed Cod With Spinach

Every Friday, we get fish in Howth. If the fishing has been good then we’ll get enough for a few meals over the weekend. If not, then it’s simply a white fish for one meal. 52 weeks of the year we eat fish at least once a week.

Warm Prawn Salad

There’s an hour before bedtime. We call it crazy-hour in this house. This evening it was marked by the two boys running around in circles, shouting and giggling. All I can do is watch and embrace the madness. As himself doesn’t get home until close to bedtime it can be hard to try to eat …

Spice Crusted Potatoes

I’ve reached that point in January where my body just craves healthy food. I think it’s down to the need to feel well and boost vital nutrients in the body. I realise that I normally blog on a sweet-savoury rotation but I’ve not been baking much recently. I’ll try my best to squeeze something sweet …
