One of Erin’s favourite foods when she was about 1 was parsnips. If we would go out for a carvery or a roast dinner these would be her food of choice. Sadly, she’s been going through a fussy stage lately and won’t each much at all so I thought cooking up some air fryer parsnips might do the trick. The great thing about air fryer parsnips is that you can do them a few different ways. If you follow the recipe below you can either serve them with a roast dinner or you can have
I am a pretty fussy eater and I don’t actually eat that much veg. However, something I have with every roast or Christmas dinner is carrots. I love them but I have only ever cooked them in the same way and they can get pretty boring after a while. While I was in an experiencing mood I wondered whether or not you could cook carrots in an air fryer. Here’s out the air fryer carrots turned out! To start with, I cut the carrots into bigger chunks and I quickly realised that they would take
One of the best bits about a roast dinner for me is the roast potatoes. I know some people tend to choose mashed potatoes instead but I’m quite happy cook both normally because I love them both. The problem for me though is that roast potatoes tend to take forever. If I cook them in the oven I par boil them first and then they still take a good 35-40 minutes to cook. We also have quite a small cooker and when you add in meat or sausages etc. and Yorkshire puddings, it doesn’t leave
Brussel spouts, whether you like them or not, are a traditional part of Christmas dinner. I, personally, am not a fan myself but my husband John LOVES them. The problem with Christmas dinner is that there is so much to do, only a certain number of hobs available on the cooker and not enough time to really do everything you want. I want to spend Christmas Day with my family, watching Erin opening her presents and having fun so I decided to experiment a bit and see what I could cook in my air fryer.
Ever since our holiday and wedding in Orlando back in 2013 I have had this massive love for American breakfast waffles but unfortunately, have never been able to make any. Earlier this month we received a new waffle maker from Dunelm to help us out for Christmas Day breakfast and it is amazing! American breakfast waffles are so much easier to make than I thought they were. I had visions of me messing them up like I normally do with crepes and I thought I’d do something really wrong with the recipe. The problem with
A camera shy blogger isn’t something you hear of too often, especially when this is what they do for a living. For the longest time I have been really camera shy. I hate having my picture taken which is probably due to self-confidence issues. The majority of the photos you see on here or on social media are either of Erin on her own or with John or other family members. It’s quite rare for there to be pictures of me. Last month I realised something though. If I want to move forward as a
AD | Post contains gifted items Erin is an outdoor girl. A few years ago I would have laughed had you told me any child of mine would grow up loving the outdoors and exploring. However, moving to Norfolk certainly changed who I am and now I want to be out there with her. I’ll still scream at a wasp or bee but I’m much better than I used to be. The problem with having a child who loves to be outside is that they want to do that whether it’s warm, cold, snowing or raining.
It’s the middle of December and the weather is getting worse and worse. Unfortunately, we don’t get lovely snowy winters here in the UK and instead we tend to get loads of rain and some slush after it snows. I don’t think I can ever remember having a white Christmas here and it’s things like this that make me want to go away for Christmas. So, today I thought I’d bring you my 5 dream Christmas holiday destinations. Lapland Who doesn’t want to go to Lapland? What better place to celebrate the magic of Christmas
