Macaroni cheese bake

Autumn is definitely approaching and what better comfort food to eat than macaroni cheese. Bailey absolutely loves this dish!!! He used to love it with bacon included, now won’t touch it with bacon in it, aarrgghh! But still adores it with home-made chicken strips or just on its own. INGREDIENTS 1 tbsp olive oil 250g…

Tuna Pasta Bake

As you probably know by now, we LOVE pasta in our house. In an effort to try to get Bailey to eat more fish, this dish has become a winner as it doesnt take overly ‘fishy’, and has become a failsafe for family entertaining (sorry for guests that are bored of it by now). It…

Chicken Tikka Masala Curry

Its Saturday night… Apart from being addicted to watching talent shows like X factor /Britain’s Got Talent and The Voice a Saturday night in has become synonymous with a home made curry in our house. Preferably with home made naan bread (SOOO good!) but definitely a curry in whatever shape or form we fancy. So…

RECIPE OF THE WEEK: Chicken and Sausage tray bake

Today we have the return of RECIPE OF THE WEEK. This concept has saved my life from the regularity of cooking the same dishes and helped us add a little variety.  This dish was super easy and all ingredients in one tray in the oven?? Win Win! It really was delicious, we all finished off every mouthful from…

Prawn Jalfrezi Curry

One of my all time desert island dishes would have to be a curry, I love all the spices and interesting flavours of Thai and Indian cooking. I spent a few months travelling around India with my friend Gill when I was young and at college and it truly is a very colourful varied place….

RECIPE OF THE WEEK: Lean in 15 Chicken Fajita Rice

I seem to have been having a break from Recipe of the week for a while, what with holidays and not feeling very inspired, but this week we are back on it with the new dish routine. This weeks dish is from Joe Wicks Lean in 15 cook book 3, and was chosen by myself. Don’t…

Mum’s Hidden Veg Spaghetti Bolognese

I know for the last few years Bailey has become a total bread and pasta monster! Literally if it were left up to him, that’s all he would eat! He always seems to be on the go, he has so much energy running around everywhere I assume his body is craving carbs. The good thing…

RECIPE OF THE WEEK: Four cheese pasta bake

Today we have a whole new category on TheLegendaryBrownie called Recipe of the Week. I have found Bailey goes through ‘fussy eating’ phases where he only wants one type of food (he is mainly a pasta and bread monster!) Or his usual ‘favourite dish’ for no particular reason becomes the most hated dish of all time. And…

Home-made lasagne

With this immense cold weather that feels like its been going on forever I have been craving comfort food big time, so what better than a hearty lasagne! Perfect for making 2 portions and freezing one for later. We love ours with tender stem broccoli but also great in the summer with a nice crisp salad. I…

Homemade pizza

We love home made pizza in our house, and it seems to appear on the menu every week. Its perfect as I usually make 2 at one go, 1 for kids, 1 for adults, its also dead easy to split a pizza in half with ingredients so one side can have cheese, the other pepperoni… everyone’s happy. AND…
