Basic Mince for Bolognaise or Cottage Pie

This is my base for all my mince recipes

Lemon and Sultana Slices

You can use orange or lime juice to make these into orange or lime and sultana slices instead.

Beef Stir Fry

Lemon Squares

These lemon squares use a meal replacement vanilla shake to add additional protein, you can use a protein shake powder instead to increase the protein for a post workout snack.

Tasty Oat Squares


Sizzling Steak Stir-fry

Great tasting, very quick to make

Baked bolognaise

An alternative to spaghetti bolognaise. Freezes great too.

Banapple Muffins

From Weight Watchers Your Week magazine. Nutrition information based on 10 muffins.

Apple and Mincemeat Crumble

Most definitely not low calorie or low fat but very nice as a treat.

Breakfast Cereal Bars

Nutritious, delicious breakfast bars which are great for breakfast on the run or a quick snack. They'll last for up to a week in an air-tight container

Pumpkin Muffins

This recipe asks for tinned pumpkin but as we can't get that in the UK, I make my own pumpkin puree and use 7fl oz (or 212g)

Rock Buns

Please note this recipe uses self raising flour - if you can't get self raising flour use plain or all purpose and add 1tsp baking powder.

Yogurt Gingerbread

Lovely gingerbread with candied ginger pieces. Serves 12.

Ginger Biscuits (Gingerbread Men)

This is an old recipe handed down through my family. The nutrition information is for 50 biscuits but I can often make more, or less, it depends on the size and shape of the cutters. Please note that the prep time of 20 minutes does not include the 1-4 hours it takes for the dough to cool to a workable temperature.


Please note that I have put the prep time as 20 minutes but it does require standing time of 4-12 hours.
This is an old teabread recipe passed down to me from my mum. It cuts better if you leave it overnight before eating.

Incredible! (2 ratings)
Mincemeat Sultana Muffins

These are a great alternative for mince pies at Christmas (or any time of year). Please note that they are NOT a low calorie substitute.

No Bake Chocolate Cookies

BEWARE: These are very sinful, not low in calories (157 per cookie) and very moreish. They are quite rich in chocolate flavour and are a great sweet treat, if you can stop at one. Please note that these contain coconut.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

A very basic quick and easy sweet and sour chicken recipe. Serve with rice or noodles.
I sometimes use different veg, depending on what is in the house. It is also good using pork instead of chicken.


Very basic flapjack recipe. You can add dried fruit if you wish

Toad in the Hole

This is a very basic recipe. Please note I weigh all of the ingredients for the batter.

Homemade Beefburgers

This is a basic recipe for beefburgers which was passed down from my grandma via my mum. You can add herbs and spices to make them different.

Grandma's Shepherds Pie

My Grandma used to make this and it has passed down through the family with each of us adding our own little bits. You can substitute the potatoes for pasta if you want to use the mince for bolognaise.

Mum's Lunchbox Cookies

I loved these as a kid. My mum used to put them in our bags for mid-morning snack at school to keep us going till lunch. Great for after school too.
