5 Delicious Recipes To Try at Home

I’m not a natural cook. I go through phases of getting into scouring Pinterest for my favourite recipes and then a few weeks later, I go back to buying quick and easy things to eat for dinner. So when I see other bloggers sharing their delicious recipes week after week, I am quite simply in awe of them. They all look so delicious and over the past few weeks I’ve been bookmarking a few of them to share with you all. Here are my top 5 recipes, which as it happens make a little 3-course meal in itself.


For your starter, Homemade Hummus by White Camellias

I’ve been following Pat’s gorgeous blog since my first day of blogging and all her recipes are to die for. This one caught my eye particularly as it looks so simple to make and Emma absolutely love hummus. I thought this would be perfect with some warmed up pitta bread!

Onto the main course, Spicy Sausage Pasta by Sparkly Mummy

We love sausages in our house and pasta always goes down a storm too, so this recipe looks perfect. I am always on the look-out for recipes that both Emma and James can eat, otherwise I end up cooking for most of the afternoon. A wonderful hearty meal for the autumnal nights to come.

Or how about something a little spicier, Potato, Spinach & Chickpea Curry by Clementine Rocks

I eat rice almost every day and this recipe is right up my street! I particularly love the potato and spinach dahl from our local Indian so this is one I would love to try soon. It’s another easy to follow recipe which suits me down to the ground and I imagine it would be easy to add in a meat option too if we fancied.

Another one I loved was Mini Ham & Cheese Quiches by Firstooth

As Emma is still quite a fussy eater, I am always trying to find finger food recipes, and this one looks fantastic. She loves frittata and quiches, so we’ll be trying this one soon. It would be great to have a picnic favourite that we can take out and about at the weekend, so we’re not so restricted to having lunch in the house.

Let’s not forget about dessert and it’s got to be Mumzilla‘s Gin & Tonic Loaf Cake with Sloe Gin Icing

This cake looks incredible! I saw this recipe in a magazine a few years back and I have still never tried it but it looks absolutely delicious. It also looks like quite a light cake and I would love to try it. I was especially surprised that the sloe gin made the icing pink, need to up my game in gin knowledge 😉

Hope you enjoyed my recipe round-up and do let me know if you have any favourite recipes in the comments below. Can’t wait to give some of these a try-out in the kitchen soon!

    These all sound yummy – I’ve seen most of these mentioned over the last couple of weeks except for the spicy chickpea one which sounds amazing. I’m like you, I go through enthusiastic phases then go back to the staples because our week is fairly disjointed, some days Mouse eats at nursery and either Adam or I are going out so it needs to be something really quick and easy. I did prefer it in summer though where I could perfect 6001 variations of salad!

      Ah totally with you there, it’s so much easier when you can just do a salad! It’s suddenly become much easier on the days Emma eats at nursery…

    What a great idea for a post. I spotted the chickpea curry but not the others. Loooove Hummus. I was grinning when rading the intro because you sound just like me!!! I go through phases of buying all of the ingredients for my store cupboard (My spice rack of about 15 jars has the seal still on all but the mixed herbs, parsley and chili 😉 and then it’s back to tortelloni and a yoghurt for dessert!! Love the sound of the slo gin pud!

    If a guest were to come to my house for tea 1st visit = Lasagna 2nd visit = Beef stew 3rd Visit = Chilli 4th Visit = Lasagna !!!

    I have only done one recipe post in 9 months. My speciality…Tzatziki

      Haha I do love a lasagna!! Have you ever seen the Michael McIntyre bit about the spice rack…I must find it for you, it had me crying with laughter 🙂

    Thank you for including me. I’m definitely going to be making my own hummus from now on. x

    I shouldn’t have read this while hungry! Could use some gin cake right about now.

    I love homemade humus, in fact I might make some for a dinner party next week. Al the recipes look yummy, cooking with sloe gin sounds interesting. #MarvMondays

    The spicy sausage pasta sounds just up my street. I could happily live on pasta dishes. #marvmondays

    The curry sounds lovely. I might give that a bash. I love cooking but even for me it’s so easy to slip back into eating the same things. Thanks for sharing these recipes you’ve found! #MarvMondays
