Sausage and Ale Cassoulet

Sausage and Ale Cassoulet

What’s better than a sausage casserole on a Sunday evening? A sausage casserole with ale, of course! You may remember back in October I wrote about Crocktober with my Bakewell Macaroni Pudding. Well, as part of the ongoing celebration of all things slow-cooked, Crock-Pot challenged […]

Crocktober: Bakewell Macaroni Pudding

Crocktober: Bakewell Macaroni Pudding

I was recently contacted by Crock-Pot as they wanted to tell me about something they are calling Crocktober. Rather than all of those October events that try to make you give up on things, Crocktober encourages you to break out the Crock-Pot and celebrate all […]

Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks

Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks

I love lamb shanks. Not just because they’re completely delicious but also because they make the perfect dinner party dish. One shank is a fairly generous portion for one guest and left on the bone it looks very impressive when served. A few simple accompaniments […]

Caramelised White Chocolate & Carrot Bundt Cake

Caramelised White Chocolate & Carrot Bundt Cake

I had a couple of days off work this week as we had the roofing repair man coming to fix the leaking roof. Rain water dripping through the loft, down the light fitting and onto the BED was not my idea of fun! So, as […]

Super Simple Chocolate Fudge Cake

Super Simple Chocolate Fudge Cake

As you’ll know from my Slow Cooker Banoffee Cake post, I have been experimenting with the Wright’s Baking mixes recently and I have been very impressed so far! Being short on time today, I decided to use one to whip up a deliciously decadent dessert […]

Slow Cooker Banoffee Cake

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Breakfast has always been difficult in our house. Partly because our dog needs 45-60mins of walking every morning and partly because neither of us are particularly ‘early birds’, we never ever have time to make and consume breakfast before going to work. Shocker! Conscious of […]

Mum’s Beef Stew & My Dumplings

Mum’s Beef Stew & My Dumplings

When I think of stew, I think of cold Sunday afternoons in the middle of winter, a roaring fire and a blanket. Isn’t it a bit strange, then, to be cooking stew in the middle of August?!  Perhaps it’s because we have just returned from […]

Coconut Rice Pudding

Coconut Rice Pudding

This is one of my go-to desserts for the slow cooker. It is so easy and yet so delicious you will want to make it again and again! I used my new Netherton Foundry slow cooker for this recipe again and was very impressed with […]

Indian-Inspired Bread and Butter Pudding

Indian-Inspired Bread and Butter Pudding

This week I bought myself another new toy! I do love a good slow cooker, so when I saw this one by Netherton Foundry, I could not resist! I already have 2 slow cookers, but this knocks the socks off them… It’s cast iron, so […]
