January Joy: Try some new recipes

One of the things I wanted to do for my New Years resolutions was to eat a wider variety of food. I don’t know about you guys but I feel we are in a rut of eating the same 5-10 dishes night after night, Spaghetti Bolognese, Fajitas, Stirfry, Pasta, Salmon… In winter theres the added problem of eating too much stodge so I wanted warming winter foods that wouldn’t make me look like a polar bear even if I felt like one. I’m not so sure about how I’m doing on that last point but I have found some great recipes I thought I’d share.


The Carb-free comfort dish: Cod, Cauliflower and Chorizo mornay
The healthy breakfast: Bircher Museli with Apple and Banana
The Vegetarian option: Roast Aubergine Parmigiana
The one your kids will eat: Cheesy ham and broccoli pasta

To inspire me with some new recipes I bought Good Food magazine and I really enjoyed it. All of the recipes above have been tried by us from this months magazine and I’m seriously considering a subscription – it’s £5 for 5 issues right now! Despite being carb free the cod mornay was amazingly satisfying and comforting, the bircher muesli is awesome for getting some fruit in right at the start of your day and the cheesy pasta was a massive hit with Bea – including the broccoli!

Have you tried anything new this month? – I’d thoroughly recommend all of these!

Love,

  1. I find I get in a recipe rut at the end of every season – at the start of winter I’m so excited by stews and soups but I’m pretty much done with them by this time of the year! I subscribe to Delicious magazine, which I love and helps me think of some new ideas but I’m just craving the fresh produce of Spring already!

  2. We are the same Rebecca – it’s gets so dull. There are only so many Fajitas and so much pasta one can eat. I recently tried this recipe from Waitrose (I’m a sucker for picking up the cards in the entrance but never actually using them). This was quick, easy and so so tasty (plus I had all the ingredients in the cupboard which was a bonus). The boys (both of them) loved it too. Served with a green salad and some avocado.

  3. I got 5 o’clock apron for Christmas and there brocolli pasta is a hit here and it’s 15 minutes pan to table so WIN
