Delicious beef hotpot that can be in the oven in just 15 minutes!

I love making a hearty dinner at the end of a long day. Sometimes, like with this beef hotpot, I like to prepare the meal in the morning and then have it to eat in the evening. A beef hotpot is a great way to use up lots of leftover vegetables and have a nutritious meal too. It’s SO simple and I have been preparing the base in the morning and then topping with potatoes just before putting into the oven.

Homemade croutons – Make use of your oven when cooking

I’m someone who loves to save money. A pound saved is the same as a pound earned. Often I try to make use of my oven being on. I will bake treats such as midnight cookies, or even cheese straws, when I already have my oven on. By making the most of the space in my oven I am saving energy, have nice treats at home and save money too. Homemade croutons are super simple, take just two minutes to prepare and taste delicious too!

Blueberry muffins recipe

Lately I have been really enjoying baking more. Finding great ways to add more nice snacks in to our day, that are suitable for Daisy too, has been lovely. I’m really enjoying trying out new recipes, and sharing them here of course. These blueberry muffins can be made using ‘normal’ ingredients (with dairy) or they can be made using my method. Which makes them dairy free. They are also free of soya and other things that Daisy can’t have too. They are a little paler looking than normal ones but they are really tasty. Hope you enjoy my blueberry muffins recipe!
