Mixed Bean and Feta Salad

Mixed Bean Salad

This would be my hubby's idea of hell (actually anything with the word salad in it is his idea of hell), but not me though!

It makes a fantastic, filling and tasty lunch to take into the office or eat on the hop. Make up a big batch like this and it will keep you going for at least 3 or 4 days. The salty feta is a must though, it provides a great contrast to the beans and crunchy celery.

  6. I think feta is a magical ingredient - it elevates salad, quiche etc to a divine level of tastiness.
    Am I the only woman with a husband who likes salad?

  7. Well I don’t know why men can’t appreciate a good salad. I mean any kind of salad. My husband doesn’t like salads either, but I guess it’s his loss. I mean this one looks incredible. I can’t wait to try it.

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.
