I was at an antique book fair a few years back and found a lovely old “Good Housekeeping Cookery Compendium” (1957 edition) which I just had to buy. It sits on my recipe book shelf with pride and has some classic recipes which I use all the time.
Ive recently been looking at the soups and found this great Chestnut Soup.The run up to Christmas means there are lots of chestnuts around and in the supermarkets so you could give this recipe a try!

This is guaranteed to get the smell of Christmas wafting through your household. I normally don’t really like the smells that fill the house when the slow cooker is on but this one should even get your family Grinch into the spirit of things.

Chilli Con Carne - easy family meals

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Mar 6, 10:04 AM in . No comments.

According to the latest reports, one of the ways we can save our planet and improve our health is to include more plant-based meals. This doesn’t mean everyone has to go vegan, but it couldn’t hurt to try to cut down a bit on meat and to increase some of the plant-based sources of protein that we have readily available to us. I use a lot of pulses/legumes like chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, butter beans etc in my meals. Not only is this great for adding fibre and reducing the amount of meat the family eats but it’s great for meals on a budget. Tinned beans are absolutely fine and really cheap so using these to bulk up meals is ideal.

Muesli Bar Slice

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Someone asked me for a good home made muesli bar recipe this week and I think this one looks pretty good. Commercially produced muesli bars can be loaded with sugar and saturated or even hydrogenated fats and often don’t contain any natural fruit. Homemade muesli bars are a healthy snack you can put in your kid’s lunchboxes each day. You can be sure of the ingredients and you can add your own touches. Have a go at this recipe.

Slow cooker sausage and bean casserole

Continuing without an oven, I was out all day so did a sausage casserole in the slow cooker. I don’t know why people can tend to be a bit snobby about sausage. Many people don’t want to admit they are having a standard, filling, family dinner rather than a more exciting and adventurous meal with interesting ingredients.

Vegetable Fried Rice

Looking for a quick, easy and healthy meal? This one is easy and can use frozen vegetables, if you have them. You don’t need to worry about your frozen vegetables. These days, they are pretty good quality and the nutritional content is fine too. In fact, frozen vegetables often have a higher vitamin and mineral content than fresh dues to the fact they are snap frozen soon after harvesting.

Easy Lunches - Chickpea Salad

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jul 14, 11:00 AM in and . No comments.

I seem to have gathered quite a collection of cans of chickpeas. The only reason I can imagine is that I must have been going through a strange “prepper” phase. I do love chickpeas, though, so I’d say the truth is that I just said “oh, I could use these” and popped a tin in the cart each time I have been shopping. No problem, finding things to do with chickpeas is fine with me!
So, chickpea brownies? hummus? Curry? Not this time.

My kind of homework - kids' healthy recipes

Last week, my son’s class had the kind of homework I love.
The kids had to find a healthy recipe and record themselves cooking. I’m pleased to say that my son chose a really simple recipe. (Not the least because we were in the middle of moving house and all of my kitchen was packed up at this stage!)

So what did he choose? A smoothie!.
