Banana and pineapple loaf

I’ve really started enjoying fruit recently. I have a (somewhat deserved) reputation as a chocoholic within my friendship group, but I feel my fruit consumption of late might have redeemed me. I got sent a selection of Nature’s Finest fruit pots a little while ago and it was just a bit too easy to take the majority of them to work for lunch. I also appreciate … Continue reading Banana and pineapple loaf

Sausage, sweet potato and spinach lasagne

This recipe is one for those days when only something a bit more carb heavy and comforting will do, but at the same time you don’t want healthy eating to go completely out of the window.

JimJams’ Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake

Anyone who knows me know’s I have a weakness for chocolate spread. I think its one of those foods that turns me a bit greedy to be honest. In fact, I often think if I had to eat my way out of a vat of food I would definitely hope it was some sort of chocolate theme spread..anyway I was very kindly sent some JimJams … Continue reading JimJams’ Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake
