Ultimate lazy tuna fishcakes

My daughter and I are home in the day quite often. We tend to go out together in the afternoon, to help the day go by a little quicker. As we are off to the park, running errands or visiting soft play I like us to have a nice lunch together before we go out. I typically want something that is simple, cheap and makes minimal mess. These ultimate lazy tuna fishcakes are perfect for knocking together in just a few minutes and using up a few leftovers 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!

Slow cooker beef casserole – super lazy version!

Fancy making a nice slow cooker beef casserole? Don’t want to put too much effort in? I’ve got you covered! This slow cooker beef casserole takes just 5 minutes to get ready and you can even cook dumplings in the pot. You can make this for under £5, serving 3-4 hungry people. Obviously this depends on the appetite and the quality of the ingredients that you buy. If your budget is small then you do what you can. Anyway, here we go. My slow cooker beef casserole – the super lazy version!

My super simple and cheap banana bread recipe

Recently I had a day at home where I had lots of time on my hands. I gave the fridge a bit of a clean and when doing so I saw some sad, brown bananas. Usually I would blend these up in my Nutribullet for my daughter Daisy. However, this time I decided to make a banana bread. We had company coming for dinner and I knew a slice of this would be a lovely dessert. Anyway, here is my banana bread recipe. It is cheap and it takes just a few minutes to make and throw in the oven.

Sage and onion stuffing recipe

Before my daughter was born I would make us a roast dinner every single weekend. Over time I learned to make everything from scratch. Stuffing, gravy, yorkshires etc. My dinners just got better and better but also more and more time consuming. Then my daughter Daisy came along. Life got busier. I started to resort back to using Paxo and Bisto. Nothing wrong with that but it just isn’t the same! Anyway, life is getting back on track for us now and I’ve been able to start cooking from scratch regularly again. This is my sage and onion stuffing recipe. It takes around 5 – 10 minutes to prepare and then it cooks for around the same time as packet stuffing. Best of all this sage and onion stuffing recipe will set you back about 30p! If you add sausagemeat then this will bump up the price – depending on the quality.
