Chili Bulgur with Roasted Autumn Veggies and a Balsamic Beetroot Puree

I have had a great day, I’m just back in from the Les Mills Tribe event and it was great, a little crowded perhaps, but we expected that and I think I may have lost the hearing in my one good ear from the thumping music and microphone screaming! We kicked off the morning with a Body Balance class, then there was Body Attack, followed by Sh’Bam and then we finished off with Body Pump. Our instructor Soula was up there on the stage for Sh’bam and she was fabulous, followed by Nicolas with the Body pump crew, the 2 […]

BBQ Lentil Chilli with Guacamole and Mexican Rice

Back to Zumba again this morning, I was told there were a few new tracks in the routine so I thought I’d go have a looksie and get in on the new moves, I liked it, a little more high octane than the previous couple of classes which I quite like especially when it’s to The Black Eyed Peas “I got a feeling”, I’m dancing away as I type! Then a nice stretch out with Body Balance straight after, so feeling suitably worked out for the day. I’m really looking forward to Sunday this weekend as I’m heading to the […]

Orange & Cranberry Scones, perfect for afternoon tea.

I think I may have slightly overdone it at the gym today, I stared off with a Sh’Bam class then took myself off for a solo half hour on the spin bike, then decided that I should try out the Zuzana Light workout that I saw on facebook yesterday and now I think I’m broken! I was doing fabulously well, felt great after the workout and now, well, now my legs have taken on a personality of their own and are not at all happy with me! But it was great and I feel great too. I was doing all […]

Veggie Haggis Burgers with Guacamole and Paprika Spiced Wedges

Success at last for my veggie haggis burgers, I managed to photograph them this time without them looking a little sorry for themselves! I think I got burger buns last time that were just way too big and my little guys were lost in the middle of it, but not this time, no siree, I got out the big cookie cutter this time to make monster burgers, so it’s veggie haggis quarter pounders really! Now go with me on the addition of guacamole, I too thought it was sacrilegious to veer away from traditional haggis, neeps and tatties, but the […]

Curry Chickpea & Potato Pie, ideal comfort food.

I think I might have pie on the brain at the minute, so much so I think I may have dreamed about them last night. I made this curry pie as I wanted something spicy and had just bought some lovely Indian pickles that I wanted to get into. I was originally going to do something with mushrooms, but that can wait until next week. It is pie season after all and I can’t ever pass up the opportunity to make spicy food. I’m sure when I was falling asleep I was thinking about making almond croissants from the remaining […]

Cinnamonbread Men with a touch of Orange Zestiness

Yes, yes, I know, it’s supposed to be gingerbread men, but a certain man of the house doesn’t like ginger so I thought it was an acceptable trade off to make them from cinnamon. I’d originally thought of making these for Halloween along with a strawberry sauce for gory bits but I didn’t get the little cookie cutters I needed, then I saw a post on cookingstoned this week for sweet potato gingerbread men and it reminded me that I was going to bake them and so I finally got around to it. Looking at my finished product, the men […]
