EASY LUNCH: GRIDDLED HALLOUMI WRAPS

September 28, 2016


When I want a lunch thats filling and tasty, halloumi is my number one go to. It's meaty texture means you feel full and satisfied and I admit I'm addicted to the stuff. Continuing my theme of student food from last time, this wrap is perfect for an easy meal. 


For this wrap I took a wholemeal wrap, chopped plum tomatoes, chopped cucumber, a bit of sweet chilli sauce and added a stack of griddled halloumi. I also like to sprinkle some dried chilli onto the cheese while its cooking for an extra kick!


STUDENT ESSENTIAL: EASY SPAGHETTI BOLOGNESE

September 22, 2016




So last week my little sister went off to university. A few days later I got a phone call off her to ask how long she needed to microwave pre-prepared spag bol for. This made me realise how much I took being able to cook at university for granted! As a student you don't have much spare cash but this easy meal can be frozen for a few days worth of home made ready meals, or stick a tin of beans and a couple of teaspoons of chopped chilli and paprika to turn it into an easy next day chilli!



 Most of these ingredients are pretty easy to get hold of and once you have them in the cupboard they can be used to add a bunch of flavour easily to any meal. I like to shop in places like Aldi as you can't beat value for money!


 Ingredients 

500g Mince meat (Beef, lamb or turkey its up to your preference!)
1 carton Pasata 
2 tsp garlic puree (fresh or cheat and use a tube!) 
2 tbsp Tomato Puree 
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
1 red onion finely chopped 
dash of paprika 
1 beef stock pot (oxo, knorrs or bits any works!)
salt and pepper for seasoning 
Dried Spaghetti 
2 tbsp Oil for frying 


First of all get a decent size pan and whack your oil in. Heat up the oil and then add in the onions fry for 2-3 minutes then add the garlic fry for a minute more then add the mince meat. Add the paprika and then cook off till brown.

After this I like to drain some of the fat off, even if it's just a couple of tablespoons. Then add the tomato puree, stock pot, Worcestershire sauce and pasata. Give it a good stir and bring the heat down to a simmer.

Meanwhile, pop a pan of water on to boil, salt it well and add your pasta in. This takes about 8 minutes to cook. Keep stirring your sauce and add salt and pepper to season. Once your pasta has cooked, drain it, pile it all on a plate and tuck in!


Review: Whittard Of Chelsea Turkish Apple Tea

September 04, 2016



This instant tea from whittard is one of my ultimate favourites! It's super fruity and a perfect drink as these days are starting to develop a crisp autumn edge. 

The only downside is that it only lasts me about a week as I drink cup after cup. 

MARS BAR FRIDGE CAKES

May 23, 2016






I'm back! Its been such a long time since I've blogged. The main reason being that since moving I don't actually have a proper kitchen which doesn't really help when you're a food blogger...

Without further ado I present a very easy no bake recipe. My mars bar fridge cakes. A favourite in my house but very rich!



Ingredients: 


  • 2 x Large 390g bars galaxy chocolate
  • 4 x regular mars bars
  • 500g of cornflakes
  • 5 x Tablespoons golden syrup 


To begin, break up all the chocolate including the mars bars and place in large microwaveable bowl. Microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate in melted. Add the golden syrup and mix well. 

Add the cornflakes bit by bit and mix in until covered and sticky, you should know when you've added enough. 

Spoon into a tray lined with greaseproof paper and press down well. Leave to set in fridge and then cut into pieces. Enjoy!
