I’m desperately trying to get out of the ‘same old same old dinners’ rut, because I always seem to be making the same things! BORING!┬áIn a quest to fix that I’ve been trying some new recipes.

chicken tarragon

After having a chicken tarragon dish at a friends house the other week I thought I’d try my own. This creamy mustard & tarragon chicken was dead easy and super tasty. The kids were a little unsure of the sauce but they still ate it. I loved it! What a great combo of ingredients.


I’m also going to try and use my slow cooker more. I mean how easy is it to chuck a load of ingredients in a pot, leave it cooking all day and then come dinner time you’ve got a delicious meal ready and waiting. My type of cooking. This lamb tagine recipe isn’t specifically for a slow cooker but I just browned the onion, carrot and lamb before throwing everything else in for about 6 hours on low. We all really liked this, kids especially! Winner!


Bank holiday weekend meant I got the chance to try a couple of new recipes. And with spring comes our favourite jersey royals and asparagus.


This Waitrose tart was dead easy and really tasty for Saturday lunch.


And then on Sunday I made *Jamie’s tray baked cod. I love a dish that not only looks and tastes great, but also gets cooked in one pan! Minimal washing up. Yes.

* Sorry this is the closest link I can find to the recipe I used from his app
