Triple Chocolate Muffins

Feeding Time Blog

You might think a chocolate muffin is a simple recipe to find, an easy thing to make. I thought I’d found it here. But we were wrong. I’ve been looking for a long time for a recipe that’s worth making repeatedly and I’m fairly certain this Donna Hay recipe is the one.

Blitva

I like to serve mine up with a sweet …

Warm Halloumi Salad

Warm Halloumi Salad

I found this recipe in the Waitrose magazine of all places. Created by grain & gluten-free bloggers Hemsley & Hemsley, this salad combines a few of my favourite things, one of those being halloumi cheese. Wilted lettuce is another feature that doesn’t get much press but is truly a sensation. Once you can get over your preconceived notions of how lettuce should be eaten, you’ll be throwing lettuce into your stir fries and including it as a warm side in no time.

I love that this salad is warm. I love that most of the ingredients will probably already …
