Giving it Gousto

  Cooking is my solitude. When I’ve had a busy week, I cook. When I can’t get my head round a shed load of worries, I cook. When nothing else will help relax me, I cook. Usually I’m the kind of person that heads to the kitchen and throws together something with whatever’s in the…

Marvy Meringue

If there’s one thing that goes brilliantly with fresh berries at summer is meringue. Last weekend I decided to whip up a few of the crispy, gooey treats to go with a whole bunch of sweet berries for post Sunday lunch. Ingredients 3 large egg whites 175g caster sugar 1 pinch of salt Method 1….

BBQ Pizza

Matt and I have a little addiction. It knows no bounds. Pizza. That heavenly, dough-y gift from the Gods that is pizza. We can’t get enough of the stuff, and with the warm weekends we’ve been having, nothing has seemed more appetising than a cold beer and some home-made pizza. Matt’s been desperate to try…

Low Cal Vegetable Soup

So here’s some bad news in the world of Palindrome Poppet… my new workplace doesn’t have a microwave!!! After living off reheated healthy meals, it’s definitely been a shock to the (digestive) system, but I’m thinking of investing in a new thermos type container to keep some food warm. Come autumn I’m definitely going to…

Peppermint Pudding

Another instalment from my #TryTotal recipes, this pudding is sweet and refreshing! A healthier take on ice cream, this pudding uses a few simple ingredients whizzed through my Yonanas machine. I won my Yonanas machine way back last summer in one of Carly’s giveaways – it certainly makes making banana based ice cream much easier!…

Choco Peanut Oat Bites

As part of a new #TryTotal challenge, I’ve been asked by Total yoghurt to share the recipes I make with their yoghurt. I’m a massive fan of their yoghurt – it is so high in protein, low in fat and sugar and deliciously thick so I thought I’d share a few of my recipes from…

Indulgent Rolo Cake

This cake is incredibly indulgent, calorific and naughty but at the end of the day – sometimes we need to treat ourselves! It’s got three main steps – cakes, filling and topping. The cake is essentially two chocolate sponges sandwiches together. If you want to make this speedy you could use good old Becky Crocker!…

Raisin Pancakes

Clean eating really comes into its own at breakfast. I really love being creative at breakfast time, and one of my favourite meals is pancakes. Although often stuffed with processed flour, cooked in butter, and topped with refined sugar, it isn’t an ideal breakfast when you’re trying to eat clean. Cut out the white flour,…

Cranberry and Orange Bread

Half my problem with sticking to clean eating is finding the right kinds of foods to snack on. Often I won’t fancy digging in to some salads/vegetables. I’d been wanting to make some fruity bread for a while when this recipe came about. It’s sticky, sweet and perfectly filling. Whilst the ingredient list may seem long, its…
