Slow Cooker Pork Chops ll
About this Cook
28 year old single Mum of 3 fantastic kids aged 6,7 and 12. Work part time (31 hours a week) but love cooking in my spare time. I'm always on the look out for trying new ideas and ingredients in the kitchen that my kids and I can try. I'm hoping to get my kids cooking more and they are very much involved in choosing dinner ideas already.
My favorite things to cook
Main courses involving chicken, prawns, beef and pork go down well in my household. I've been trying new ideas for my crockpot too. I haven't got much of a sweet tooth but will have a go at a dessert recipe if I take a fancy to it. Love pasta dishes and couscous too and want to cook more fish recipes too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making a huge pan of ham and vegetable broth when the weather turns cooler in Autumn. It's delicious with some crusty bread. I also every year make Christmas sandwiches on Boxing Day with leftovers. Turkey, stuffing, sliced chipolatas in bacon, diced roast parsnips, creamed swede and cranberry jelly in thick sliced bread!!! Any leftovers from Christmas dinner are gone by Boxing day evening as any family members who visit always request one of these!
My cooking triumphs
Any new recipe that all my kids agree upon is a triumph in my eyes!
My cooking tragedies
My first try with my bread maker came out flat and hard!

Jumbo Fluffy Walnut Apple Muffins
Wow! These are delicious! I followed the recipe measurements exactly and the only small change was to dice the apple into smallish chunks instead of slicing. I used a regular muffin tray instead of jumbo and I'm taking some of these in to work tomorrow to share as they are so delicious. Fantastic recipe. Thanks

Garlic Pasta with Prawns
I love this recipeIt's great as it is but can easily adapted too. My kids don't like prawns much so I make this and put half in a tub in the fridge. Next day it's delicious as a cold pasta salad for lunch. Also, a quick chamge I sometimes make to this is after draining the pasta and returning to the pan, stir in a coule of handfuls of fresh rocket or watercress. Stir in and return the lid to the pan then continue with the recipe instuctions. It adds a bit of colour and is delicious. Thanks for this easy recipe!

Buttery Lemon Spinach
To be honest I've previously avoided spinach as a side dish as I find it bland and uninspiring but this recipe changed all that. Loved the zingy flavour and the fact that the garlic is tasty rather than overpowering. My kids tried it but weren't keen but I loved it. I served it as a last minute side dish to go with a chicken and bacon lattice pie and some buttered baby Jersey Royal potatoes. The spinach kept the whole meal light and suprisingly was delicious with the pie crust. Thanks
