Bacon and Pea Linguine in a White Wine and Soured Cream Sauce

This was most definitely a throw it in the pan kind of dish as I'm desperately trying to finish off odds and ends in the cupboards, fridge and freezer to make room for all the Christmas food that will be coming shortly.

As you all know Hubby is not a fan of creamy sauces so it was just my luck that he was out at darts tonight - giving me a great excuse to try this.

Ingredients: serves 2 and a toddler
4 rashers bacon, chopped
1 Onion sliced
1 Garlic clove, sliced
Splash of white wine
3 TBSP Soured Cream
Seasoning
Handful Parmesan, grated
Handful Basil, sliced
Toasted pine nuts to serve
350g Linguine, cooked according to packet

Method:
Step 1: Fry onion, bacon and garlic in a little oil
Step 2: Add wine, cream and cheese and simmer for a few minutes then add basil
Step 3:Toss in linguine and serve with toasted pine nuts scattered on top.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
