Creamy Smoked Salmon Linguine

Creamy Smoked Salmon and Spinach pasta
A super quick and easy creamy smoked salmon pasta dish with the added goodness of baby spinach. The horseradish in this is a must, it gives it a wonderful flavour and subtle heat. You can have this on the table in 10 minutes and it's a popular week night staple in this house.

  1. Although I love pizza I don't think I could pass up a plate of this smoked salmon pasta:D

  2. I will indeed. It sounds and looks lovely. As for 15 minutes...

  3. Can't believe that your husband would pass THIS up! It looks wonderful! I would much prefer this pasta to a pizza.

  4. Beth I'd have your Creamy Smoked Salmon Linguine any day!! This looks so yummy.


  5. I'm loving the Horseradish you've put in - looks delish!

  6. WOw this sounds and looks amazing! Love the addition of horseradish.

  7. Gosh, he's MAD! I've only just had breakfast but I'd still give quite a lot to have that plate in front of me right now ;)

  8. I think I'd be more than a little mad at my husband if I prepared him a lovely meal & he insisted on having a pizza

  9. Oh heavenly .. sitting here wondering what to fix for dinner, I have some salmon in the freezer, guess I could improvise ?

    Your pic has me drooling :)

  10. Salmon and can't go wrong!

  11. Your husbands loss. This looks so creamy, rich and delicious!

  12. I've made a very similar to this before using smoked salmon and creme fraiche but never thought to add horseradish, that's a nice touch!

    I love this dish, way better than a pizza!

  13. 15 minutes, I'm impressed, this is definitely a must try. It looks delish. Your hubby must be crackers, but at least it would have meant more for you and Lowen. :-)

  14. Wow- he missed out! Looks fantastic!

  15. More fool him, indeed! This would win over pizza every time for me.

  16. I have my eye on this one, looks wonderful!

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.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.

TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
