About the Great British Porridge Challenge 

Top TV chef Simon Rimmer and Britain’s oldest family oat miller, Mornflake Cereals, are urging porridge fans to share their oaty masterpieces, for a chance to take part in the first ever ‘Porridge Stir-Off’, at the home of Mornflake Oats, in Cheshire, on Saturday 5th April.

The ‘Stir-Off’ will take place in the scenic, 13th Century Bunbury Water Mill, near Mornflake Cereals, where the winning recipe will be chosen by Simon, Porridge guru and Golden Spurtle winner, Anna Louise Batchelor (aka the Porridge Lady), together with Mornflake MD, John Lea.
The winner will enjoy a fabulous Gourmet Evening-for-two, hosted by Simon, at his award-winning Cheshire restaurant, a year’s worth of Mornflake Porridge Oats and an all-expenses-paid trip to enter their recipe into the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Championships, in Scotland. The recipe will also feature in Mornflake’s annual Oat Recipe Book.
Commenting on the event, Simon Rimmer, said: “The Mornflake Great British Porridge Challenge is a true celebration of what has been the food of the Nation for centuries and you don’t have to be a master chef to enter – we’re just looking for exciting and delicious flavour combinations.
“It’s fantastic that Mornflake, as Britain’s original family oat miller, with their reputation for quality and value, is bringing porridge to the fore in this way and we really hope to get the Nation stirring!
 Fellow judge, Anna Louise Batchelor, said: "The Mornflake Great British Porridge Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for Brits to show just how great we are at making porridge.
“For the Stir-Off we are looking for imaginative and creative recipes - we are looking to find a Great British Porridge!".
To enter, simply upload a video clip or picture of your oaty masterpiece, with full recipe details, to the dedicated web page at http://www.mornflake.com/whats-on/competitions/great-british-porridge-challenge.aspx or Facebook page, where you can also find full competition Terms and Conditions.

    To answer your question I’m going to have to choose, but the real answer is, it depends on what mood I am in, as there is so much I love.

    But to be fair and answer your question properly, I will choose Eggy Bread (French toast).

    Since being on a diet (almost a year now,and 120lbs lost!), I’ve found that the idea of a full English now makes me feel quite ill, so a big bowl of yogurt and tropical fruits granola would be my ideal breakfast, with most of the appeal lying in not having to weigh everything out – that’s a treat for me these days!

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

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.

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.

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…
