Dinner Win!!

I totally had an amazing win for dinner last night!  It was so good that The Boy declared it one of my best kitchen experiments, ever! After coping a mouthful of abuse from a dickhead on Facebook, I was a bit disheartened in my Slimming World cooking efforts.  I felt that I should be making…

Ripe Market, Al Barsha Pond Park

I am a food fan, in case you’ve not guessed.  I love pretty much all foods – except anything with those pesky nuts in!  When a friend of mine offered me a trip out to the local organic farmers market, I jumped at the chance! I was slightly more prepared this time however.  I had…

Avoca-do or don’t?

  According to Slimming World rules, avocados have syns.  10 syns per 100g to be precise.  It seems like a lot. The avocado pear is one of the most nutrient packed fruits around.  It has vitamins B, C, E and K for a start.  It also has a bunch of other things that I can’t remember and…

Over Night Oat Pancakes – Version 2

Following my previous post about pancakes (here) which I wrote ages ago and forgot all about, I thought I would update you on my new discovery straight away… I couldn’t find where I had written down the ingredients and measurements to make pancakes the same way as before, and was not having my brightest day…

Over Night Oat Pancakes

Bit of a jumbled name there, but you get what I mean. Now, these pictures are not going to be pretty because I manage to eff up the actual cooking every time.  The one time I didn’t, I was so hungry I stuffed them in my face before I could even think “camera”! American Pancakes…

Self Sabotage

Hands up who does self sabotages?  No, seriously.  Do you?  I need to know.  Am I the only one? I am the queen of self sabotage.  Today is just the latest example.  I can pull 101 excuses for it but I honestly don’t know why I actually do. Let me explain….

Naughty, naughty!

I was having a little shuffle through Instagram this lunch time and found an account full of other peoples pictures, including mine.  What was even more cheeky is that they had listed my recipe and claimed it as their own. Now, I’m not a vain person and I don’t do this to collect followers or get…

Burger Blow Out!!!

This past weekend saw my Dubai Anniversary.  I landed in this weird adult Disney World 6 years ago.  I don’t think I ever meant to stay so long, and have certainly spent a chunk of that time planning where to escape to next, but this is my home. (I also am far to lazy to…

White Choc & Raspberry Baked Oats

I ran out of week this week.  I had planned on making some more breakfast burritos but with bacon instead of beef.  I am still going to make them at some point, but not today! I knew that I would need something different for breakfast after the same for two days, and 4 days of…

Finding My Happy

On 8th September 1997, I broke my first ever pair of ice skates.  I hadn’t used them in a couple of years and hadn’t stored them with any kind of care and attention because I was an unappreciative asshole as a teenager.  As I was doing a lap of Guildford Spectrum’s ice, the ankle padding…
