RatingDifficultyBeginner

A short while ago I was sent the recipe book and Diary from The Diary Diary team. As soon as I opened the package, I was thrown straight back to my childhood. every year around Christmas time, my mum would get these delivered with her special Christmas delivery from the milkman.

I can honestly say that I didn't know that they were still producing them. But was pleasantly surprised how good they were. On top of a week to page diary, you get some amazing recipes to try in the actual diary and the recipe book is full of some wonderful recipe ideas for the family.

There is a range of mouth-watering breakfasts, lunches and weekday meals and to top it off some lovely weekend specials.

All of the recipes are fairly easy to follow and the ones that we have tried have been delicious. The recipe that I am doing today was very popular in our house and even got the kids eating asparagus! It took no time to prepare and less than half an hour to cook, so perfect after a day of home learning.

  1. Oh my word, the Dairy Diary! Yes, my mum had one every year without fail too! Great recipe Ian. I’ve not eaten too many warm salads but I’m tempted.
