Simple summer prawns recipe

Simple summer prawns recipe for one

So, with the kids off to their Mum's for a few days, it was time for this dad to let his hair down. Sadly not this week though. Work, housework and other stuff to catch up on…… I knew before I left for work, that I was going to be late home, so rummaged through the freezer and stumbled on some prawns I brought when on a yellow sticker at the supermarket, so got them out to defrost and trotted off to work. Simple summer prawns it was going to be.


roast pork fillet

Roast Pork Fillet with shallots and apple

The middle boy found this recipe online and asked me to try it. I needed to make some adjustments to make it work with the herbs and spices we had in the cupboard. It turned out amazing and will be back on the dinner table again at some point in the near future.

orange and ginger glazed carrots

Orange and Ginger Glazed Carrots

If you want to jazz up you Sunday roast then check out these amazing and simple orange and ginger glazed carrots. This time I used some sweet baby carrots because they were on a yellow sticker and cheap. But you can use any variety of carrot for this recipe.

I am always looking at ways to get the kids happily eating more vegetables and this recipe didn't fail. It added a delicate extra flavour to the plate and all three of them asked for more. If you don't like ginger, you could always experiment with other flavours. We have cooked similar but used honey instead. I also plan to try to experiment with garlic in the future.


Easy Apple Sauce

Easy Apple Sauce

Simple, cheap and a lot better than the stuff you find in jars. I needed something to accompany the belly pork I recently cooked as part of my budget Christmas dinner recipe. So thought I would share it with you guys too.


decorated cupcakes

Cupcakes - Dad's Delicious Bake Off

The little lady decided for her Egyptian Topic Homework this week she would make cupcakes, with little pyramids on top.

Not to be outdone. The middle boy, in turn, wanted to make some cupcakes of his own.

One thing led to another and we now have enough cupcakes to feed a small army.
