Breakfast Muffins

Easy to make, batch bake & freeze for when you have visitors




6 lrg eggs

2 Tbsp milk

1 cup of roughly chopped onion (I used spring onions)

1 cup mixed frozen peppers

1 1/2 cups grated cheese, of your choice




Heat oven to 200C/gas 6.

Mix the eggs and milk together in a jug.

Oil a 12 cup muffin tin, I used spray oil as it was the easiest way.

Divide the onion, peppers and cheese between the cups of the muffin tin.

Pour on the egg, milk mixture and bake for 20 – 25 minutes. Once cooked through they’ll be a nice golden colour and all puffed up.

Now all you need is the bacon and hash browns ๐Ÿ˜‰



Smoothie Ice Lollies May 25, 2015

Smoothie Lollies

First off let me say ‘Thank you’ to my new followers and for all the likes ๐Ÿ™‚

Made with fresh and frozen fruit, oats and fruit juice these are a nice healthy alternative to those shop bought lollies.




1 large banana

300g frozen berries (I used strawberries but you can use a mix of berries or just your favourite)

50g porridge oats (shhh don’t tell the kid’s & they won’t know ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

400ml apple juice, unsweetened

1 Tbsp honey, optional





Put the banana, berries, oats and apple juice in a liquidiser. Start off using it on pulse to break those frozen berries up a bit, then turn it up and whizz for several minutes until it’s all completely smooth and there’s no sight of those oats ;-).

Taste for sweetness, depending on what fruit you’ve added it might be a bit tart and need the honey added.

Divide the mixture into ice lolly molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.

If you don’t use it all up in the lolly molds then add some more apple juice and simply serve as a smoothie drink.


Healthy Coconut Macaroons May 20, 2015

Coconut Macaroons 1


This is a nice easy recipe, not sure why I haven’t made them before..


Mix equal weights of Carnation Light (low fat) condensed milk and coconut. Roll into small balls, flatten slightly for the bottom and bake at 175C/gas 4 for 10 – 12 minutes. You can be decadent and coat the bottoms with chocolate or add choc chips (or raisins) to the mix but plain ones are great too.




Summer Berries and Banana Smoothie March 3, 2015

Summer Berries & Banana Smoothie

Just to prove Iย canย do healthy as well ๐Ÿ˜‰




1 frozen ripe banana, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces

1 cup frozen berries of your choice

1/2 cup low fat plain yoghurt

1/2 cup pomegranate juice, plus more if needed

4 tsp honey




Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and purรฉe until smooth. Depending on the type of blender you have, you may need to stop and stir occasionally to help it along. If the mixture is too thick, add 2 tablespoons more pomegranate juice and blend again. Pour into glass and serve cold.

This amount of ingredients made just under 400mls of smoothie.

Make life easier by peeling and slicing the banana then freezing it rather than freezing a whole banana then trying to cut it ๐Ÿ˜‰
