Ghoulish Eyeball Pasta With Blood Red Sauce

Ghoulish Eyeball Pasta With Blood Red Sauce

We don't make a huge deal of Halloween here but I do allow the kids to go Trick or Treating to a few neighbours houses. We'll also be tucking into this ghoulish eyeball pasta with blood red meatball sauce on Saturday evening whilst we watch the rugby. It's super easy to make, especially if you use ready made meatballs (I'm all for time saving) and if you can't find spinach tagliatelle just use plain pasta and stir in some pesto sauce to make it green.

The spider is optional!

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.

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.
