Cheap Family Meals FM Podcast
Welcome to our cheap family meals Podcast. In January we showed you how to make a cheap KFC at home, last month we showed you how to bulk cook meals using clearance vegetables and this month we want to show you how to grow your own fruit and vegetables.
Something that we started the process of back in October. What we wanted to do was give ourselves a couple of months to allow things to grow and then feature it as part of our Podcast. Well today as I record our Podcast, take videos and photos it is the 20th of February. Exactly 4 months to the day, that we started planting and turned into the accidental gardeners.
Accidental Gardeners You Say?
Yes, I am no gardener. In fact, I am so rubbish at it that I would probably manage to kill a tree, if I was left in charge of it. Which is crazy considering how many amazing gardeners I have in my family.
My Grandad Tom was obsessed with plants and had a back yard full of beautiful plants, they even looked good after Kyle (who was a toddler at the time and was named after him) hit them with his football.
My Grandad George (who my youngest son Jorge is named after) was not just a plant grower but had a massive allotment too. It was full of fruits and vegetables and I loved to eat his carrots raw, just after they had been picked out of the ground and rinsed, or binge on his gooseberries.
My Mum also grew a lot of beautiful flowery plants. She had a small patio and made good use out of them and her garden looked like something out...]]>

The Art Of Making A Massive KFC Feast
* #1 Leftover Christmas Soup
* #2 The Ultimate Leftover Soup
* #3 Carrot & Coriander Soup
* #4 Greek Eat Your Greens Soup
* #5 Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Cheap Family Meals FM Podcast
Welcome to our cheap family meals Podcast. Last month we showed you the art of making a massive KFC feast for you and your family using your Air Fryer and reduced price chicken. But this month we wanted to share with you in more depth how we do our reduced price food.
Reduced price food has different names around the world. In the US they call it clearance, in the UK it is yellow stickers and here in Portugal it is pink stickers.

I go absolutely crazy for them and have turned into a pink sticker hoarder.
I decided to see how bad my problem really is and to bring everything out of my freezer that is a pink sticker deal and see EXACTLY how much of it I had. Dominic took the pictures as I wrote everything down.

It turns out that my pink sticker addiction has resulted in:

* 5 Large Christmas Turkeys
* Pack of 2 Pork Chops*5
* Packs Of Sausages*4
* Tray Of Chicken Wings*3
* ½ Whole Duck
* 3 Rump Beef Steak Pack*2
* Beef Strips Steak
* Tray Of Pork Bifanas*2
* Packs of 2 Chicken Breasts*8
* Single Chicken Breast

As well as this I also got pink sticker deals for the following items that thanks to my supermarket loyalty card were free:

* 1 Spatchcock Chicken
* Chicken Strips Pack
* Packs Of 2 Chicken Breasts*4
* Packs Of 2 Chicken Legs*4
* Packs Of 4 Chicken Thighs*3

But they are a true life saver. As a family of 5 we want cheap family meals. We don’t want to spend a small fortune on our meat and we want to be able to have a good supply of it in the freezer, that way when we do have to cut grocery shopping costs then we can.
I also have a really good batch of leftover meals that have been built up over time too. Each time I cook, if there is enough to make up a portion for another day, then I will.

Here is the grand list of leftover food from my freezer:

* Thanksgiving Soup
* Carrot & Coriander Soup*2
* Homemade Tomato Sauce
* Pork Stock*2
* Sausage Stock
* Homemade Jerk Sauce
* Cheese Sauce*2
* Bean Dip
* Homemade Ginger & Garlic Coconut Sauce

Cheap Family Meals FM Podcast
Welcome to our cheap family meals Podcast. Last year on RecipeThis.com we talked about foods in season and this year we want to focus on cheap meals instead. Don’t expect boring recipes (or cooking tips podcasts) for chicken and rice but family meals that you and your kids will love.
To start off our new monthly Podcast I was thinking to myself, which of our regular family meals I adore the most. Especially, for ones that are much cheaper than going out and I have to say a homemade Air Fryer KFC Chicken dinner.
I love to have a KFC supper. I love the taste. I love the flavour. I love deep fried chicken. But I hate the cost. I can queue for a KFC and easily spend 20-30€ just on some chicken and chips. This feels like daylight robbery and its crazy if you think of the mark up on your favourite takeaway.

A while ago, I kept my receipt from my KFC feast and it was 33,95€/$39.96. Now that is huge. Its not like we had 6 buckets of chicken either, we had:

* 2 Bucket Lovers
* 3 Extra Krunch
* Small Coleslaw
* ½ Corn On The Cob


That was it! I was rather shocked when I got home and saw my receipt. 33,95€ for some chicken in a bucket with a few sides! This is crazy money. Back in late 2008 we actually spent this amount on a weekly grocery shop for 2 adults and a 7-year-old. Even now 2 of these KFC meals is the same as our weekly grocery shopping costs.
Then there are the KFC calories. I mean seriously, KFC has more calories than any of the other fast food restaurants that I used to visit:

Therefore, we thought it would be great fun for this Cheap Family Meals Podcast to recreate a KFC at home. Dedicated to all you lovely families out there and all you amazing families that can’t afford to eat out at KFC.

A delicious Australian style of garlic potatoes that is a MUST for serving to your family.
I have actually been eating these for years but nobody ever told me they were Australian and I found out by chance that they were a couple of weeks ago and it felt just right that I would share them on Recipe This.
I have always called them my crushed garlic potatoes. I cook them in a similar way to traditional French saluted potatoes. They come with a lot of garlic and olive oil and bring a boring white potato to life.
Whenever I cooked them I would always get asked when I would be doing them again as the family loved them so much.
Normally I could serve up my garlic crushed potatoes with meat and salad. Usually as a Saturday night supper with pulled pork and a cobb salad. We would always argue over who was getting the last potato and I would normally steal it when nobody was looking.

I know BAD WIFE.
To make Aussie style Hot Crash Potatoes instead of just giving it a quick sauté the potatoes are cooked again with fresh thyme and a bit of fat and then served like they are baked potatoes that have been crushed.
I suppose you could say they are like a lazy loaded potato. No need to remove the contents of the potato and mix it with anything. Instead you are just pushing the baked potatoes down, adding a topping and cooking some more.
Very simple and OMG these luxury baked potatoes are just amazing cooked in the Instant Pot.
Once you have these Instant Pot Crash Hot Potatoes you will want them time and time again.
You can also change the flavours for what fresh herbs that you have available. For example, I used fresh thyme but rosemary would be just as nice. You could also swap extra virgin olive oil for butter. Or be naughty like me and have BOTH!
When you cook your Instant Pot Crash Hot Potatoes it is like cooking baked potatoes, but with less time and then giving them an extra cook. If you over cook the baked potatoes in the Instant Pot though it will turn them to mash. So, beware of your cooking times.

I grew up on the same types of pastas and would have them all the time if I could. It would either be macaroni cheese, broccoli gratin with pasta and of course root vegetables along with pasta and a big cheese sauce.
Clearly, I had a certain theme and pasta al forno would always feature on the menu. Thanks to how easy it is to cook and how frugal it is too, it is always a family winner.
But confession time….how often do we cook the pasta in a pan of boiling water, make the cheese sauce in another pan and then finally the broccoli will be boiled in a third pan. It will then be transferred to a huge tray and then finished off in the oven so that is can bake.
I mean how ridiculous does this sound?
Plus, so many of us have done this until we have learnt the art of pasta al forno in one pot.
But a normal one pot would of course be a big Dutch Oven or maybe in the Instant Pot. But I bet nobody has thought (well until now) the benefit of doing so in a frying pan and then having a frying pan that handle just comes nicely off so that you can finish the cooking in the oven.
You start by frying your onions, making your stock, then add the broccoli and pasta in and it will cook in the stock. Then reduce it to reduce the stock, add your sauce and then the cooking process can then be finished in the oven. Plus, it is so fast to make that it is just PERFECT for a quick mid-week dinner for you and your family.
If you don’t like broccoli or don’t have any in, then swap it for a different vegetable with a similar texture.
I love to also do it with:

* Cauliflower
* Cabbage
* Butternut Squash
* Sweet Potatoes

Don’t do it with:

* White Potatoes
* Carrots
* Courgettes
* Pumpkin
* Aubergines

This is because aubergines, pumpkin and courgettes hold too much water and run the thickness of your favourite cheese sauce. Then with the white potatoes and carrots they are very hard and require a lot more cooking.
Plus of course you could also go with pretty much any type of pasta. I love to throw in all the little bits of pasta that I have leftover in my pantry.
Even better the same can be said for cheese. You can grab all the little bits of cheese that you have leftover in the freezer and add it in. It’s so much nicer with a cheese sauce when you use a variety of delicious cheeses.

Welcome to my Instant Pot Baked Potatoes. An Instant Pot baked potato is incredibly quick and easy to make and perfect for a comforting meal for you and your family in the Instant Pot.
OMG give me Instant Pot baked potatoes. One of my true best friends and something that I love to cook for myself and my family.
It is one of those things that time speeds up in the Instant Pot compared to the old bake it in the oven way of cooking.
The way I have always seen baked potatoes, is as something that I always forget to get in the oven on time. Then I decide to cook them and Dominic is complaining at me that his lunch is 2 hours late.
I know BAD WIFE/BAD MOTHER.
Plus, don’t get me started about how long it takes me to make my baked potatoes into loaded potato skins. We should not go there….
So, I stopped cooking baked potatoes, just because I forgot and I was slow. Instead it was something that I ate when we went out for lunch instead. I would have my baked potato loaded with butter, cheese and sometimes coleslaw too and it was so, so delicious.
Then I got an Instant Pot and my world changed forever. All of a sudden I was having the most amazing Instant Pot Baked Potatoes.
Instead of taking over an hour in the oven (and that was a small one) I could suddenly make these HUGE Instant Pot baked potatoes in the Instant Pot in less than half the time.
You can then load them with whatever your favourite baked potato toppings are and hey presto you have dinner on the table. Our favourite toppings for our baked potatoes is butter, cheese and mince but we also love tuna and mayonnaise on top like how they have the traditional British jacket potatoes.

Instant Pot Jacket Potatoes vs Instant Pot Baked Potatoes

Okay so a lot of people asked me when I published my jacket potatoes recipe in January what they are actually are. Well they are the same thing, just a different country = a different name for them.
Us Brits call them jacket potatoes meaning that it is potatoes in their jackets and the jacket is the skin. Compare to the Americans that have a more simple explanation which is a baked potato because they are simply thrown in the oven and baked.
Instant Pot Baked Potato Cooking Times
There are 3 different types of ways to cook baked potatoes in the Instant Pot or other electric pressure cookers. Both actually cook for exactly the same time and it just depends whether or not you would rather cook it all in one go or leave it to rest.
Instant Pot Baked Potato Version 1 – This involves cooking it for 10 minutes on high pressure on the manual setting. Then you allow it to naturally release pressure for 20 minutes.
Instant Pot Baked Potato Version 2 – This is where you cook it for 30 quick minutes on manual, then you quickly remove pressure. No letting it rest, just cook it and get it out of there just like you would with an oven.
Instant Pot Baked Potato Version 3 – Us Brits often do it by cooking it for 20 minutes on the manual setting and then 10 minutes of natural pressure release.
As you can see the end result still comes back to different ways of cooking it for 30 minutes in the Instant Pot. All of them do a fine job in producing delicious Instant Pot Baked Potatoes/Jacket Potatoes it just depends how you prefer them.
Below we have done version 2 just because it’s hard to remember when it has done x amount of natural pressure release. As like with many mums you can go off and do your thing and totally forget about them. So at least with no natural pressure release, you know when it beeps dinner is ready to be dished up!
Though if you are using the Instant Pot Baked Potatoes to transfer into mash ...]]>

I love carrots and they can taste even better than baked carrots, with a lot less calories, when cooked in the Airfryer. Airfryer carrots are perfect for a side for dinner, Welcome to my Airfyer Carrots Recipe here at recipethis.com. I love carrots and they can taste even better than baked carrots, with a lot less calories, when cooked in the Airfryer. Airfryer carrots are perfect for a side for dinner, to go with lunch or just for a snack for your kids.
My first ever memory of carrots is my Grandad growing them on his allotment. They tasted delicious and it was at a time when it was normal to eat the skin and there would be no harm done to you if you just gave it a quick rinse and ate it as it was.
Nowadays you would call that an organic carrot. Though I prefer to just call them homemade.
My Grandad also grew a lot of other great food in his small allotment. It amazed me because it was only a small space but OMG did he grow a lot.
I would enjoy homegrown carrots, gooseberries, strawberries, raspberries, cabbage, tomatoes and so much more. To be honest there was so much I just couldn’t remember it all.
My Grandad passed away in late 1993, so I dread to think what we would make of the Airfryer and all the other kitchen gadgets that are doing the rounds today. Or the idea that freshly grown vegetables that have the “organic” tag cost a small fortune nowadays.

Carrots have yet to make it into our homegrown garden so for now we are relying on the cheap bag of carrots from the supermarket. They are sold in big bags of 1 kilo weight and are perfect for peeling and chopping ready to make Airfryer carrots with.
Airfryer carrots can be very much like making Airfryer fries. A bit thicker though so that they don’t end up burnt but still lovely for a side with your meal.
Plus if you are on the Paleo diet and want to cut back on your spuds then it is a great way to do so.
When we cook our Airfryer carrots we do so with some olive oil, some seasoning (depending on the mood) and then leave them to cook in the Airfryer.
They really are that simple. As simple as making Airfryer Fries just a little healthier and are perfect for both kids and adults and so, so frugal. Plus if your kids are the type that claim they HATE vegetables then throw some carrots their way and see how things change.


Airfryer Carrots Recipe


Enjoy just like roasted carrots in the Airfryer. So delicious and so easy to make as well. Plus you and your kids will love them.


* Airfryer
* 6 Large Carrots
* 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
* 1 Tbsp Oregano
* Salt & Pepper
* Fresh Parsley



* Peel and slice your carrots length ways so that they are like really thick chips.
* Place them in the Airfryer basket with a sprinkling of olive oil.
* Cook for 12 minutes at 180c/360f.
* Give it a good shake, add the seasonings and cook for a further 2 minutes at 200c/400f.
* Serve with extra fresh parsley.


Make sure you keep the carrots of a similar size. Otherwise some will be cooked and some wont. Plus there is nothing worse in cookery than carrots that are crunchy. Also make sure the carrots are not too small as they shrink when they are cooking and you will end up with carrots as thin as crisps.




Whole30 Airfryer Carrots

These Airfryer Carrots are PERFECT for the Whole30 and Paleo. Full of nutritional goodness and will become a family favourite. They are also vegan friendly too.

From a calories point of view these Airfryer carrots work out at 108 calories per person. In my mind blink and you will miss it as you have a very low calorie side here. Compare this to cooking in the oven with lots of butt...]]>

How about a stir fry in the Instant Pot? Forget those times when you have a beef and green bean stir fry and the meat is really tough, this is how to make the cheapest cut of beef into an amazing beef and green bean stir fry.
I love the Chinese buffet and very rarely go to a Chinese restaurant. In fact I was trying to think recently when was the last time I actually went to a Chinese restaurant and it dawned on me that the last time, was back in 2011 with a friend of mine and Dominic’s.
It was a Chinese restaurant that I had been to quite a lot, but as it wasn’t in the area that I lived anymore it has been forgotten about.
We had a mixed platter of Chinese food that included the usual suspects. There would be French toast, crunchy seaweed, spare ribs, chicken wings and a few other bits and pieces. Then you would have crispy duck and pancakes with sliced spring onion and cucumber.  After all this you would have some sweet and sour chicken or some beef in a black bean sauce. You would then have a side of egg fried rice.
All in all you would be stuffed and you would easily spend £20 each on your meal. Plus drinks.
Then compare this to a Chinese Buffet.

If you take a family of four to a Chinese Buffet even with them making the money back from the drinks you would still be paying less. On average we will pay 12€ each including drinks and then you can eat as much or as little as you like.
I can start with my prawn toast (like I used to) I can have sushi (never on offer in the Chinese restaurant) and then my beef and green bean stir fry.
We go about once every 2 months and have a great time and also when you have small children like us (we have 2 under 3s) then they don’t have to wait for their food to arrive.
But my big complaint is that you can never tell until you start eating what the beef and green bean stir fry is going to be like. It is always in the buffet warmers and is a delicious flavour, but you’re always worried whether the beef will be tough or not.
That is why now when I cook a beef and green bean stir fry that I always cook it in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. It makes it so tender and you never have to worry that your meat is tough as you are guaranteed a tender taste sensation.
Then you can also follow the same format for most types of beef Chinese dishes. Have teriyaki, sweet and sour, black bean and even lemon chilli this way.

BEWARE Foodgasm territory is about to come at you and attack you in full force. We are talking about succulent beef fillet covered in homemade pate, followed by the most amazing shortcrust pastry. It is then cooked in the Airfryer. Add them together and you have the Airfryer Beef Wellington of your dreams.
When you think about beef wellington it is one of those kinds of foods that you always remember where you were when you first had it. The first time you ever tasted fillet at the same time as pate and pastry.
For me it was a French restaurant in the town where I grew up.
We went a lot of times throughout my childhood and into my teens.
Major family birthdays were celebrated there and since moving out of town I have not been. The last time I went was my 21st birthday and YES I had the beef wellington!
It was always the house special. The meal deal that everyone always got excited about (including me) and that was a big part of the A La Carte Dining.
But beef wellington has often been associated with high quality French trained chefs. Something that the average Joe cannot cook. But YOU CAN, and it is actually easier than you think.
It is no more difficult than making your own pasta, cooking a Sunday roast or even making your own birthday cake.
To make this version of beef wellington in the Airfryer, easy to prepare we make the homemade pate and homemade pastry first then it is just a case of putting everything together.
Plus you are likely to have some pastry and some pate leftover that you can use for another family meal.
For those of you that are new to beef wellington or cooking it in the Airfryer here is 2 questions I get asked a lot:
What Is Beef Wellington?

Beef Wellington is a fillet steak that has been coated with pate and that has then been wrapped in pastry. It is then baked until the beef fillet is medium.
Some beef wellington recipes include wrapping it in filo pastry, shortcrust pastry or puff pastry.
There are often many different versions of pate used, depending on the meat and the end flavouring you want to achieve.
As well as beef wellington people often follow a similar recipe with salmon, pork tenderloin, venison and hare.
Why Make Beef Wellington In The Airfryer?

When you cook beef wellington in the oven it can sometimes be soggy thanks to all the pate that you use. The pastry might not be as crispy as you would like either.
However your Airfryer is like a deep fat fryer and is the true star for crisping up your food.
The Airfryer is also a great size for being able to fit a beef wellington into.

Instant Pot Beef Brisket you say? Well count me in. I can’t believe my former vegetarian self is so addicted to beef brisket.
I used to be repulsed by meat. I hated the look of bacon, thought that fat from minced beef was vile and couldn’t even stand looking at ribs.
I mean what happened to my teenage self?
Well I just stopped. After 5 years of being a vegetarian I just returned to meat. Being a vegetarian is really not a fun place to be when you HATE mushrooms and are ALLERGIC to nuts.
Try going out for a pub meal and not having a choice that didn’t include mushroom stroganoff or a nut roast.
It just became a nightmare and in the end I just gave up.

But within 5 years of not being a vegetarian I met my husband. A person obsessed with meat and who would rather just eat meat for the rest of his life. He taught me to love meat, put up with removing the fat from the bacon just for me, cook my steak to well done as I hated any pink juices, would chop up the chicken for me because he knew I hated doing it and would accept it when I fed him vegetarian food for 2 days in a row.
When it is his day to cook you can guarantee there will be meat involved, whereas when it is my turn it will either be vegan and vegetarian. I have educated him on how delicious vegan food can be, while he has showed me that meat can taste amazing if cooked right.
He has even got me eating beef (and enjoying it too) when it is rare to medium. Something that I never thought would happen. I get excited now when we take a trip to the Brazilian restaurant and have the Brazilian barbecue and I will be the one digging into the rare sirloin that is on offer.

Now in my mid 30’s my body gets excited whenever someone mentions beef brisket. I know. I know. It’s not beef fillet is it? But Beef Brisket in my mind is one of those totally underrated meats that we should all eat more often.
When you cook beef brisket correctly it can be so tender that you will be lost in foodgasm world.
You will savour the delicious flavour and how beef can be so soft. Forget those cuts of beef that end up giving you toothache all day, this is the real deal.
But a lot of people fail to get beef tender because they over cook it, cook it on the wrong temperature and all sorts of other reasons. Or it’s the blame of the cut of beef being too tough and you end up needing a lot of paracetamols while your teeth recover.
However if you cook beef brisket in the Instant Pot instead, all of a sudden you have the most tender Instant Pot Beef Brisket that you have ever tried. Follow this up with a quick crisping in the Airfryer and OMG. And of course even though I have used my Instant Pot for this you could use any pressure cooker for similar results.

I must confess now that I never eat enough pork roast. It’s not that I don’t like pork roast because I do, it’s just one of those one pot pork recipes that gets forgotten about.
Instead the pulled pork, Spanish pork, pork chops or even gammon come out in front instead.
So I decided it was about time to bring pork back for its original classic way of being eaten and that is in a delicious pork roast.
With a pork roast it carries such a lovely flavour and such amazing juices. This means that it is naturally easy to cook with.
You can add your choice of vegetables to the bottom of your one pot, add the roast pork on top and then tuck in as the juices from the pork flavour the vegetables.
It is also a great way of cooking if you want to use less oil when you cook. This is because the juices from the pork roast work as an alternative to the oil, giving you a lower fat plan B.
This one pot pork roast can also be easily adapted to suit your tastes. You can also cook it in the Instant Pot, Slow Cooker or even in the Airfryer.
Though I personally cooked my One Pot Pork Roast in my shallow casserole dish. Then I could start the cooking process on the hob and then finish cooking it in the oven.
Or if you are bored of pork you can also adapt this recipe for beef roast, lamb roast or venison dishes.


One Pot Pork Roast


A delicious roast dinner all cooked in one pot with lots of sweet potatoes, carrots and a moist pork shoulder.


* Dutch Oven
* Knife Sharpener
* Medium Pork Tenderloin (Pork Shoulder)
* 4 Large Carrots
* 4 Medium Sweet Potatoes
* 6 Medium Garlic Cloves (peeled)
* 4 Tbp Olive Oil
* 250 ml White Wine
* 1 Tbsp Pork Seasoning
* 1 Tbsp Mustard Powder
* 1 Tsp Sage
* Salt & Pepper
* Vegetable OXO Cube
* Handful Fresh Rosemary
* Black Peppercorns (optional)



* Peel the carrots and the sweet potatoes and chop them up into chip shapes.
* Place them in your one pot and cook with the fresh garlic cloves and 2tbsp of olive oil on a hot heat for 5 minutes. Keep turning them with tongs so that they don’t stick.
* Take off the heat. Season with salt, pepper and rosemary.
* Place your pork on a chopping board. Put medium sized slits into the sides and top of it.
* Rub the olive oil into the top and sides of the pork. Then rub in the pork seasoning, mustard, salt and pepper.
* Pour the white wine and the litre of stock over the vegetables and give it a stir.
* Place the pork on top of the carrot and sweet potatoes.
* Cook in the oven for 40 minutes on 180/360f.
* Slice up the pork and serve with the carrots and sweet potatoes.


I always have chopped fresh rosemary to hand. It’s perfect for adding to a pork roast. Just clean it chop it into 1cm pieces. Fresh garlic cloves with the skin removed is perfect for the bottom of a one pot. It gives an amazing flavour and you don’t need to mince it.
 
To make my litre of vegetable stock I mix together 1 vegetable OXO cube with a teaspoon of dried sage and 1 litre of boiling water.]]>

You can move the girl away from Yorkshire and get her to live in a beautiful hot country like Portugal, but you can never take the Yorkshire out of the girl.
I grew up in a small town called Bridlington in the North East of England. An Aussie singer once named it as “quaint little town” in her autobiography. I would say it was a town, with not many opportunities for young people (hence why I left) but a place where you are guaranteed a delicious beef roast.
There would be a carvery on every street and you could pay a set price to have roast beef, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, loads of vegetables and gravy.
We knew these places so well and you would find them packed out with locals and holiday makers on a Sunday afternoon while they waited for their beef roast fix.

 Dominic worked in many of these places during his chef days during the mid 90s until the dawn of the new Millennium. I also worked in a few of them as a waitress when I was still at school.
He often said that the biggest perk to working at one of these lovely places is the fact that you got plenty of the leftovers when the customers had gone home. Sadly I worked in the one place where the food was rather horrible, so I would instead help myself to Yorkshire teacakes instead.
To me my memories of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding is well before you could have an Instant Pot Beef Roast. It was also when your mum used to make it for Sunday dinner.

My mum made (and still does make) a fantastic beef roast. It would come with the biggest ever Yorkshire Puddings that you have ever seen, vegetables in a cheese sauce, homemade gravy, savoy cabbage and never enough roast potatoes.
She would start it at lunch time and everything would be ready in time for dinner and the house would smell of delicious home cooking.
But now we have an Instant Pot and can make a Sunday Beef Roast in a fraction of the time. We can cook the roast in the Instant Pot, make roast potatoes in the Airfryer and steam our vegetables in the soup maker. Gone is the 3 hours that it would once take to make a quality roast dinner and instead we can do the whole thing in under an hour.

Our grandparents would find this surreal and some kind of magical event.
But it is true and that is why I will carry around with me my Pressure Cooker Instant Pot Beef Roast recipe, so that I can save time and focus more on being with my family as time can be so precious.


Instant Pot Beef Roast


A delicious beef rib roast in the Instant Pot. Tender beef with a beautiful colour and perfect for being the star for any Sunday Dinner.


* Instant Pot
* Work Sharp Knife Sharpener
* Beef Rib Roast
* 3 Tbsp Sage
* Salt & Pepper



* Place the beef rib onto a chopping board. Using a sharp knife score the meat so that your beef will be flavoursome.
* Rub salt, pepper and sage into the top and sides of the beef.
* Place 1 cup (240ml) of warm water into the bottom of your Instant Pot inner pot.
* Place the rib of beef on top, set the lid to sealing and cook for 40 minutes on manual.

Perfect for vegans, vegetarians, healthy eaters, kids and adults alike.
The worst thing about following the Whole30 or the Paleo diet has to be the lack of pulses. I love my beans and my peas. I love how easy they are to cook with and how they make a fine alternative to using pasta or rice in dishes.
I also find that they fill me up for longer, thanks to their fibre content. But the best thing of all about them is that they can bulk up a meal.
You could simply add some chickpeas (or some other peas or beans) to a vegetable dish and suddenly you have a lot more food to go at and it no longer feels like you have a limited supply.
My favourites are chickpeas and black beans. Both of them are very versatile and I can air fry them in a whole range of different dishes. Though I must confess that most of the time it involves burgers!
But what if you used chickpeas properly as an alternative to rice? What if you had it at the bottom of your plate as your fake rice. Then you air fried the chickpeas for this delicious meal?

Air fried chickpeas is just so fast to make (and easy too) that it is truly a case of blink and you will miss it.
You simply cook the chickpeas in your baking pan, inside your Airfryer for 5 minutes to give it a head start. The baking pan is like an oven dish to the Airfryer so they wont make a dreadful mess in the bottom of your Airfryer. This will also harden them up and dry them out, making them like a crunchy alternative to fries.
Then after this add your seasoning to your air fried chickpeas, a little oil and then cook some more.
Then hey presto you have air fried chickpeas of your dreams.
I made mine with a touch of India. That is because I had just been out for a delicious Indian Buffet a week or two before and they had delicious deep fried chickpeas and I wanted to make something a little healthier.
So these Indian Air Fried Chickpeas came out to play instead!
You could of course make them with any of your favourite flavourings. Do a Mediterranean flavour, a spicy one or even with just salt and pepper.


Air Fried Chickpeas Recipe


A delicious side dish of air fried chickpeas. Perfect for the plant based life, healthy eating or just because you are bored of rice.


* Airfryer
* Airfryer Baking Pan
* 250 g Chickpeas
* 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
* 1 Tsp Garam Masala
* 1 Tsp Tandorri Spice
* 1 Tsp Cumin
* 1 Tbsp Coriander
* Salt & Pepper



* Place your chickpeas into a sieve and rinse them with cold water until they are clean and drained.
* Place the chickpeas into the Airfryer baking pan and cook in the Airfryer at 200c/400f for 5 minutes.
* Remove from the Airfryer, add the oil and seasoning, give a good shake and then cook for a further 7 minutes at 200c.
* Serve.


You will need an Airfryer Baking Pan (or similar) to cook your chickpeas in. Otherwise a lot of the chickpeas will fall into the bottom of your Airfryer. I get my tins of chickpeas in a big 520g can.
 
I used just under half a can and it’s amazing how many it makes. For the best results carry out instruction 1 an hour before cooking them. This will help them dry out more and give a more crispy end result.
 
I recommend you check out our Air Fryer Accessories to see what accessories you need.

Because I have the food sorted for the dream fakeaway. Incredibly low in Syns and super tasty, you just need to plan your movie.
I love movie nights in. I have a huge DVD collection and it’s nice to just grab a DVD and settle on the sofa with the hubby for a nice night in for two.
Of course, we have 2 under 3s so that doesn’t happen as much as we would like these days. But when it does it makes a great evening.
So whether you have DVDs, Cable TV or a Netflix subscription (well we have all 3) then you need this Airfryer Fakeaway in your life.
We are talking a great selection of quick to eat snacks. Movie snacks if you like.
If you have girlfriends coming around that are not on a diet and you want to make something nice, without making them feel like they are joining you on Slimming World then a fakeaway should be the order of the day.
You then do a quick prep and then throw it all in the Airfryer. Put it on one of these trendy warming plates, then hand out the wine and cocktails and you’re done. Relax and enjoy the rest of the evening with your friends or family.
This is also the kind of food that I put together on Valentines Night or on our Wedding Anniversary.
And it’s all because that Philips Airfryer of mine is like a deep fat fryer, grill, microwave and oven all in one!
Why An Airfryer Is A MUST On Slimming World

If you are on a low fat diet whether that is Slimming World, Weight Watchers or any other similar one then you need an Airfryer in your diet like you need a dressing on your salad.
An Airfryer cooks things with a lot less oil. So if you are on Slimming World and still want your Slimming World Chips then you can simply have them whenever you like for just a tablespoon of olive oil rather than that the deep fried alternative.
You can also make food incredibly crispy such as chicken wrapped in bacon, homemade KFC, onion rings or even big juicy burgers.
If you look inside the diet books at Slimming World they are always recommending jacket potatoes because they are so low in Syns. Well when you think of Slimming World Chips in the Airfryer instead and instead of the teaspoon of butter you have the olive oil instead.
Just think you could have a KFC everyday forever and lose weight thanks to the great combination of the Airfryer and Slimming World.
Then think of everything that you can’t have on Slimming World and just think what you can make in the Airfryer instead!
This is the Airfryer we have:

My Big Fat Airfryer Fakeaway Recipe
Okay first of all I am sure you want to know what is included in my Big Fat Airfryer Fakeaway?
Well we have the following on the menu:
#1 Airfryer Onion Rings

Airfryer onion rings are the best and so easy to make. You slice your onion, you batter it in a healthy batter and then cook it in the Airfryer.
They are Syn Free if you use the oats from your healthy extra B allowance.
#2 Airfryer Slimming World Beer Battered Fish & Crisps

This must be the most delicious thing on the menu. Succulent pieces of fish, breaded like what you would get at the Fish & Chip shop just minus the high calories. You can also use the same concept on some chicken strips too if you prefer?
Oh, and instead of serving it with chips make some crisps instead. Follow our recipe to the letter for the Slimming World Chips and instead using a grater,]]>

Welcome to my Airfryer Pumpkin Tortilla Chips recipe. A delicious seasonal use of your leftover pumpkin and perfect for a quick snack for you and your kids. Made with homemade pumpkin tortillas and air fried to a perfect crisp.
But without further a do…..Happy Halloween.
Halloween in my world is the birthday of my mum and her twin sister. A day of watching my mum get ready for a party in fancy dress as I was growing up to  a day taking my kids out for pizza.
Pizza you say? YES because for many years we have always spent Halloween at Pizza Hut. Where we lived in our 20’s the neighbourhood would be full of trick or treaters and there has always been the urge to flee.
The chance to go out and have a family meal instead of answering the door every 5 seconds. Plus I am sure compared to handing out a LOT of sweets that we were better off financially sharing a pizza. We would share a cheese stuffed crust, some potato wedges, some cookie dough and then head home.
I know. I know. Not very Halloween spirited. BUT they never stopped and half the time they would come around late and it would wake up our baby (he is now 16) or they would be teenagers looking for cigarette money!
I have also spent many, many Halloweens in countries that simply don’t celebrate the tradition. The Greek Isles, Spain, Portugal & France have all taken my attention on Halloween and apart from sharing the special day with my mum it has always passed me by.
But now having 2 under 3s on Halloween there is this urge to get involved. To in celebrate the day with lots of pumpkin and other in season food.
So today instead of just eating excessive amounts of
pumpkin soup we decided to make some pumpkin tortilla wraps. Then wrap several of them up for dinner and then save the rest to make Pumpkin Tortilla Chips in the Airfryer.
I mean imagine that for a moment. Not just potato chips, but pumpkin flavoured in the Airfryer. Now this is something different, that is for sure!
Then you could serve them up with some pumpkin flavoured hummus for the dream Halloween feast.



Airfryer Pumpkin Tortilla Chips Recipe


Delicious pumpkin flavoured tortilla chips. Cooked in the Airfryer and a great all year round snack.


* Airfryer
* Airfryer Grill Pan
* 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
* 1 Tbsp Nutmeg
* Salt & Pepper

Make the pumpkin tortillas

* 300 g Plain Flour
* 25 g Butter
* 25 g Pumpkin Pie Puree
* 60 ml Whole Milk
* 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
* 1 Tbsp Nutmeg
* 1 Tbsp Mixed Spice
* Salt & Pepper



* Make the pumpkin tortillas just like you would with regular wraps just substituting less butter and less milk for pumpkin puree. Then cook them in a frying pan like you normally would.
* Prepare the chips – brush oil on one side of each of the 6 tortilla wraps. Then stack them and cut into tortilla chip shapes. Arrange them on the grill pan for your Airfryer and sprinkle with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
* Air fry at 200c/400f for 18 minutes or until golden brown.
* Serve with pumpkin puree dipping sauce.


Use whatever your favourite pumpkin pie seasonings are. Here in Portugal we can’t get pumpkin pie spice, so instead we use nutmeg with mixed spice.
 
You could make whatever flavour tortilla chips that you wanted, based on whatever ingredients you had in. My original tortilla wraps recipe makes 6 wraps.
 
This is the amount we used to make them into Tortilla Chips. Depending on how many you wanted you could increase/decrease this recipe.

Welcome to my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Macaroni Cheese recipe. A delicious mix of macaroni cheese, made meaty for extra flavour and perfect for a quick comfort food extravaganza in your Instant Pot or other pressure cooker.
These delicious little pots of macaroni cheese are sponsored by Ekovana and their awesome stainless steel pressure cooker pan inserts.
Come on….let’s be honest……we all have that incredibly fussy eater in our household. The one that doesn’t like every vegetable, that doesn’t conform when you want to do a family meal.
You have 7 of you to cook dinner for and then there is the special one, that hates everything and that you have to make a separate meal for. Or they are vegetarian or vegan and you wonder what on earth you’re going to make, as it is new to the way you cook.
My dad is one of those special cases. It was always a case, that “Tom doesn’t like this, let’s make him this instead”. As a result my dad hated a lot of things and it felt so difficult to come up with meal ideas for him.
He hates mayonnaise, the majority of cheeses, butternut squash and anything weird that is modern. Plus he would live the rest of his life with pie and mash if he could.

I wouldn’t consider myself to be fussy though. I am allergic to nuts, hate mouldy cheese, get queasy over smoked food and hate mushrooms, but apart from that I find that I am rather easy going. If a salad is being made I will eat anything on it and end up with the biggest salad because I love everything. The same goes for vegetables. It’s hard for me to find a vegetable that I don’t like and then the same goes for fruit.
My daughter and son are the same, they love all fruit and vegetables and are really easy to cook for.
So it’s no surprise that we will all share a meal and everyone will be happy.
But not all households have that. I call it a blessing. But what do you do if they all don’t like the same? Well in my mind the great thing is to make cute little pots of pasta and then you can keep everyone happy.
That is exactly what we did with our Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Macaroni Cheese. We made 2 cute little pots of macaroni cheese. One with sausages and one with ham. Then everyone is happy. It only took a couple more minutes than usual to be able to do different pots and they are so, so cute.
Plus you don’t just have to be in fussy eater territory in order to make these. You can also do it for parties too. A girls night in would be a great example, as would a date night. It’s just something fun and different from your traditional macaroni cheese.
We used these pan inserts inside our Instant Pot Pressure Cooker in order to achieve our macaroni cheese bowls. The big deal here is that you normally have that awful splatter problem when you release pressure on your Instant Pot after cooking. That moment with your milk substance ends up on the ceiling when you do pressure release.
But in this Instant Pot recipe for macaroni cheese, instead you have these delightful pans instead that are fully sealed and then you no longer have this HUGE problem.
These pan inserts are also rather BIG so that you can do a huge batch of Instant Pot macaroni cheese if you wanted to!

A delicious Mexican recipe, chicken enchiladas is often known for being very high in fat with lots of tortilla wraps to make up the recipe. However, Welcome to my Syn Free Slimming World Chicken Enchiladas recipe. A delicious Mexican recipe, chicken enchiladas is often known for being very high in fat with lots of tortilla wraps to make up the recipe. However, in my Slimming World Syn Free version these chicken enchiladas are low fat and incredibly delicious.
10 days ago, I showed you my genius way to cook with a plain omelette. The idea that a plain omelette is very versatile and stretchy that it can double up for a lot of high carb classics.
You can use it as an alternative to cannelloni pasta, as bread or even as tortilla wraps.
Well just like with making my Slimming World Cannelloni (which is also Syn Free) we are using it in this Slimming World Chicken Enchiladas recipe as an alternative to tortilla wraps.
If you make an omelette slightly bigger and slightly thinner than usual and laid it out on your chopping board, then you will find that it is of a similar size and texture to a tortilla wrap.
Then fill it with the chicken enchiladas mix as usual and PERFECTION you have a much lower Syn/calorie take on Chicken Enchiladas.
Plus it is so quick and easy to make.
You could also follow the same principle if you were to make tuna and sweetcorn wraps for your packed lunch for work, or if you wanted to make a shortcrust pastry alternative.
What we did was make it together. It was me and my son Kyle in the kitchen cooking it while Dominic was working hard in the office. Jorge and Sofia were happily playing together on the kitchen floor and we were having a jolly time together.
As I just adore cooking with me and my babies ?
Kyle used our cast iron frying pan to make the omelettes. Though am I allowed to say that he burnt the first one? So he needed to mix more eggs! Then I made the tomato sauce, put it to one side, cooked the chicken breast, mixed everything up and then we layered up the chicken enchiladas with a good amount of cheese and plenty of spice.
BIG Confession time – I did technically cheat when I was making this. I have a huge stash of homemade sauces in my freezer from when I have recipe tested other recipes and it has needed to be used up. One of those was
the marinade from when I made fish tacos. So what I did was use that up and mix it up with the tomato sauce for the spicy kick. It made cooking so much quicker and makes me ever so grateful for my huge chest freezer.
I recommend that you do the same. You can then make a big batch of my Mexican marinade and use it whenever you have tacos, Mexican lasagne or even another batch of these Slimming World Chicken Enchiladas.

Welcome to how to make French toast in the Airfryer. French toast bread loaded with cinnamon and a splash of sugar for the ultimate French toast recipe. Perfect comfort food via the Airfryer that both adults and kids alike will love.
Those of you that have been following along for a while will know that I am addicted to simple foods that can be cooked in the Airfryer. Also many of these Airfryer recipes are also rather frugal and perfect for families.
We also have a lot of fast food classics made into healthier food such as burgers, fries, onion rings and even chicken nuggets. But one avenue in the Airfryer that we rarely focus on is breakfast. It is not that we are against breakfast as it’s the best meal of the day, but because we are always thinking about our main meals. But breakfast in the Airfryer is terrific and French toast is a MUST!
I have featured this version on the blog before with a delicious fruity topping and it has become one of my daughters all time favourites. Plus our readers have loved it too with more than 5000 people sharing it.
You see our little girl is a fussy eater.
She likes a whole range of food and getting fruit and vegetables down her is not a problem. I can’t even have a little fruit to myself, she will be behind me shouting “PLEASE” in her cute little 2 year old voice. It must be at least 18 months since I have been able to enjoy a banana to myself.
She also loves pasta, meat, beans and of course bread.
But we can have one day when she refuses to eat anything to one day when she polishes every meal. We are always waiting for her to finish and her little brother that is just over a year old will eat everything and anything without question.
I know I should be grateful.
After all many parents complain that their kids won’t eat fruit and veg, but it would be nice to know how much she is going to eat, or whether or not she is going to eat at all.
But one thing she will eat straight away is French toast and she absolutely worships cinnamon. It is her go to food and so much healthier in the Airfryer too.
I use real French Bread Sticks in my Airfryer French Toast and when you taste it when it is cooked it is like cinnamon doughnuts. No wonder Sofia will eat them no matter what!
They are also about 90% less calories than cinnamon doughnuts and taste just as good!
The benefit of learning how to make French toast in the Airfryer is that it’s so simple. It’s actually shockingly simple.

I love teaching my kids to cook from a young age. Therefore Sofia will sit on the worktop and mix the milk and egg together while I crack the eggs in for her. Then she will learn how to sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top of the cooked French toast. Though I have to keep a very close eye on her, otherwise she will put a whole jar of cinnamon into her French toast.
They are also great fun to cook and you can also use the most stale of French bread that you have and then get excited by how good they look once cooked.
Another benefit of learning how to make French toast in the Airfryer is that it is free of oil. Traditionally you might have made it in a frying pan with some butter or olive oil. But this version is totally oil free.
Once we have finished cooking our French toast in the Airfryer you can throw it all in the dish and then serve it to your kids.
Though it’s not just for kids as I love French toast too. You can also make it with different flavours, different shapes and even as croutons. It’s just something fun and quick that anyone can make, after all if I can teach a 2 year old how to make French toast then anyone can make it in the Airfryer.

Syn Free Quick & Cheesy Slimming World Lasagne https://www.recipethis.com/syn-free-quick-cheesy-slimming-world-lasagne/ Tue, 24 Oct 2017 06:42:45 +0000 https://recipethis.com/?p=9003 https://www.recipethis.com/syn-free-quick-cheesy-slimming-world-lasagne/#respond https://www.recipethis.com/syn-free-quick-cheesy-slimming-world-lasagne/feed/ 0 <p>Welcome to my Syn Free Quick & Cheesy Slimming World Lasagne.

Welcome to my Syn Free Quick & Cheesy Slimming World Lasagne. Lasagne can sometimes take forever to make and can often be loaded with Syns. But I decided to put the clock on to see how quick I could make a lasagne and how delicious it could be while still being Syn Free.
I am sure you are probably wondering why we have another Slimming World Lasagne, after all we had one last month and a leftover version yesterday. But this one I promise is the last one for a while. Well until I come up with a new and exciting way to do it – because lasagne is my life!
It is just one of those classic pasta dishes that are so good for getting your family involved in. Plus this new version is a quick option for when you can’t be bothered to cook or you are too busy or too tired.
I made this one night when I was so, so tired. You know that feeling when you’re so, so tired it is an effort to walk from one side of the room to another. Then all you want to do is ring a takeaway, eat excessive amounts of Ben & Jerry’s and of course lay on the sofa and wish that you didn’t have to cook ever again!
I had been up during the night with my colicky baby, it was so hot so doing the housework was tiring and I hadn’t had 6 hours sleep (I wish!!!) for more than a year. The thought of standing over a hot stove for ages to make a traditional lasagne just didn’t sound great.
I just wanted to get into the kitchen, cook something that was low in Syns and then get back to the sofa. Then I can use my spare Syns on a chocolate binge (or two) instead.
The benefit of this particular Syn Free Slimming World Lasagne is that it is cooked in one pot (my cast iron casserole dish to be exact) and therefore less washing up. The best thing about doing it in a Cast Iron Casserole Dish is that it can be used in both the oven and the hob. This means less washing up and less pan scrubbing.
In making this Slimming World Lasagne I used:

* Cast Iron Casserole Dish
* Medium Mixing Bowl
* Fork
* Teaspoon
* Cheese Grater
* Chopping Board
* Sharp Knife

Compare this to when I make a traditional Slimming World Lasagne. I would use all of the above plus I would also use:
A large pan for my cheese sauce, a large pan for my Bolognese and then a blender for making my tomato sauce, a steamer for making the tomato sauce and then of course lots more utensils for all the preparing of the meal.
In the end you have this huge mountain of washing up to do and you’re hopeful that someone will come and do all the cleaning up for you.
This is also another reason why I don’t have a Slimming World Lasagne very often – I just don’t have the time or energy.
But this new version of a Slimming World Lasagne is loaded with 2 types of cheese, uses just healthy extras and is a dream come true for a quick evening meal for you and your family.
So next time you want to have a lasagne but think that it is too much effort, then think again and make this.


Syn Free Quick & Cheesy Slimming World Lasagne Recipe


A quick take on cheesy Slimming World Lasagne. Plenty of minced beef, cheese, lasagne sheets and flavoured with oregano.


* Cast Iron Casserole Dish
* 600 g Minced Beef
* 2 Cans Tinned Tomatoes
* 1 Large Onion
* 12 Lasagne Sheets
* 300 g Philadelphia

Welcome to my Slimming World Lasagne Cups In The Airfryer. A delicious use of your leftover Bolognese, cheese and broken lasagne sheets. Perfect for the Slimming World diet too as they are completely Syn Free. Cooked in the Airfryer they are a busy mums dream come true.
I love lasagne. I mean I really LOVE LASAGNE. It is one of my go to foods and is perfect for if you are on Slimming World and want something Syn Free.
You probably think Slimming World Lasagne can never go together but they can. You see last month on the blog I did my Slimming World Lasagne recipe. It involved lots of homemade Bolognese, plenty of cheese sauce and even more lasagne sheets. Providing you use my Slimming World Lasagne recipe then you can keep it completely Syn Free. As no butter, flour or oil is used in the recipe and instead it is loaded with vegetables and lean mince.
In this Slimming World Lasagne recipe we are putting the lasagne into cups. It is a big trend at the moment, but NOT like how I do it. The trend right now is to use filo pastry instead or any type of Chinese pastry. Both can be good of course but come with a Syn value, which why use them when lasagne sheets are completely Syn Free?
For example I tried making these Slimming World Lasagne Cups with filo and they worked out at about 2 Syns each and I would rather save the Syns for more chocolate as I am a HUGE chocolate addict!
These lasagne cups are also a great use of leftover lasagne. Though I should confess that I have a 16 year old that considers lasagne to be his favourite food, so we only have leftovers when he is at school!
Whatever you have leftover from your lasagne can be used:
Lasagne Sheets – you know those broken up bits of lasagne sheets at the bottom of the box? Well they can be used. Just like the half sheets and the quarter sheets can also come in handy. On top of this you can also use full sheets in this recipe too. But you don’t need as many of them compared to if you were making a regular full sized lasagne. This means that if you have cravings for lasagne and just have 2 lasagne sheets left in your packet then you can make these lasagne cups with it.

Bolognese – say you have loads of leftover mince from a spaghetti Bolognese, meatballs, sloppy joes or even from making cottage pie, then it can be used to make this. No need to reheat either as it will warm up as you cook the little lasagne cups in the Airfryer.
Cheese Sauce – I confess now I always make too much. I will pour my leftover cheese sauce into a plastic container and then freeze it for later. But instead it can be used to make a dish like this instead.
Or for a plan B you could just place grated cheese over the top of your little lasagne cups instead of using a cheese sauce. The idea here is that you have something quick from leftovers and that you can cook them quickly in the Airfryer.
Plus even better…..we did an olive oil vs none olive oil test. We greased the bottom of the little cups with olive oil and then did some without and some with flour. We found that those that were NOT greased were non stick and you just rinsed the cups under the tap after use and they required no scrubbing at all.
Compare this to a big lasagne tray that takes ages to scrub away the grind and this is a dream come true.
Ideally, this recipe should really be renamed to No Washing Up Slimming World Lasagne Cups In The Airfryer!

A delicious homemade beef cannelloni with a genius change in the recipe to not only make these beef cannelloni gluten free but also Syn free on Slimming World too. Welcome to my Slimming World Beef Cannelloni Fakeaway night in. A delicious homemade beef cannelloni with a genius change in the recipe to not only make these beef cannelloni gluten free but also Syn free on Slimming World too.
Let me start by saying that this Slimming World Syn Free Beef Cannelloni recipe is sponsored by Speedrange Ltd and their Italian Seasoning Herb Blend.
I love Italian food. From the ages of 7 to age 17 I was lucky enough to have a pizza restaurant at the end of my street. It was a big restaurant and I spent many birthdays here as I was growing up.
I would love to watch them as they made the garlic bread and OMG it smelt out of this world……AMAZING. Then they did the most amazing calzone pizzas that were filled with cheese and bacon. It was like food heaven and for a kid this was the closest to heaven that you were ever going to experience.
Though of course, go on a day when the main chef was on the night off and the food was awful. But apart from that I could never complain.
It eventually closed and the building was changed into a Chinese Buffet and that was me done with my favourite childhood Italian restaurant.
When I ate there I always had a garlic bread, then this would be followed up with a calzone, then I don’t recall dessert though I am sure I would have had plenty!
A couple of years after it shut its doors my mum had found a good replacement for us in town and we went in a girl gang. I was heavily pregnant with Kyle at the time (OMG he is 16 years old now) and I remember being forced into this small seat in the corner so that I wouldn’t get in the way of the waiter.
I had beef cannelloni just because I love it and it is so good. It was the first time I had eaten it at a restaurant compared to making it myself. Even though it was so good, it was so unhealthy too with the really thick cheese sauce, the cannelloni pasta tubes and of course the mince wouldn’t be low fat!
So what if I go back to before my first was born, get excited over those 2001 flavours and make a delicious Slimming World Beef Cannelloni version. A beef cannelloni that is Syn Free, flourless, gluten free and delicious too. I have done one before on RecipeThis.com but it was not that healthy and I felt I owed it to myself to make a super healthy version!
Gluten Free Cannelloni
The idea for this came when Dominic was making my lunch one day. I was on the Whole30 at the time and I was sick of always having a cooked lunch so he made me an omelette instead. Nothing fancy but just a quick red pepper one. Then he folded it in two and added some leftover pork in the middle.
I thought at first glance that even though the texture was slightly different, that it looked JUST like a tuna and sweetcorn wrap that he used to make me all the time.
It gave me food for thought and I thought just HOW PERFECT it would be as an alternative to tortilla wraps. If you want to be gluten free, or you are sick of always having pasta or bread with your lunch to try this instead.
We then followed this method to replace a lot of our pasta and bread and realised we were onto something special.
Just think just 1 egg and you have a make do wrap, a sandwich, tortilla chips and so much more.
From a Slimming World point of view you’re probably SHOUTING what are you doing you can have cannelloni tubes for free on Slimming World. This is of course completely true. But what about when you are on your speed days? What about when you think about the cost and how much cannelloni tubes cost compared to 1 egg?
Or are you like me? When if you eat a big pasta meal you end up with a big fat weight gain that week? As I eat pasta and that’s it I am 3 pounds heavier.]]>

Welcome to my Instant Pot Homemade Strawberry Cake recipe. A delicious and addictive strawberry cake with a vanilla frosting. It is perfect for birthdays and an easy family treat.
This Instant Pot Strawberry Cake is sponsored by Mindspace and their fantastic silver caddy.
We all have our little ways in life. Our issues. Our addictions. Our faults. Our flaws. Our personality.
I am not perfect. I like a tidy house. I can’t go to bed without making sure all the kids toys are tidied away. I can’t leave the office without it being tidy. I also have to make the bed as soon as I get out of bed and never leave it unmade.
Dominic on the other hand, is obsessed with laying his clothes out the night before. This happened because he used to start work at 6am and wanted everything done so that he didn’t wake me up in the morning (what a gentleman!) and even now still does it out of habit a decade later.
Sofia is obsessed with putting her toys away in a certain place, with passing me my glasses and passing me a mixing bowl whenever she wants me to bake for her.
It makes us giggle and makes me realise we all do, these little things and I call them our little quirks.
But even though I like keeping my kitchen tidy, I have the most annoying kitchen ever. Until we build an extension and totally renovate the house, then I am totally stuck with it. Yet the blog needs to increase its income before I can even consider this, so I expect this will be our kitchen for the next 2 years (at least) and that is why I get so excited each time our traffic grows.

The kitchen is split into 2 areas.
We have an area that is more like under the stairs storage and is so small. It has 2 cupboards wide on one side and the same on the other. It also has crumbly walls due to damp and has the stairs going up to the 2 loft bedrooms. It is also really dark as there is no windows in this section and with the 1 light on its not enough. We keep our kitchen gadgets in here and sometimes it feels like we need a torch to cook with. It is also the area that we have our main worktop for peeling and chopping vegetables.
Then there is the 2nd area. It is bigger and has our oven, hob, fridge/freezer, sink/drainer and a few cupboards. It is much lighter and better. The only problem is a lack of electric plug sockets. We have just 1 and its rather high up. So this means to use a hand mixer we have to use a window sill.
On top of this the 2 rooms are joined together by a very thin doorway. This means that we can’t move anything wide into the second area and it is everything BUT practical.
We then are constantly moving from one area to another to cook and it gets annoying.
Add to this that you have a toddler following you everywhere and one of you always ended up being bashed against the fridge freezer.
This is why we use the Mindspace Caddy. You can simply use it to store all your utensils that you’re using for a particular recipe and go from room to room. It can hold my seasonings, my vegetables, my utensils and so much more. No more angry kitchen moments that is for sure.
Though one day we do plan on improving the kitchen and when we do, we sense a lot of walls being bashed down and having a light open plan kitchen. But until then, there is hoping and there is dreaming.
In this Instant Pot Strawberry Cake recipe we loaded all the main ingredients we needed and then set to work. It helped us when we made the sponge base, the strawberry filling and of course the amazing vanilla frosting. I must have saved 20 minutes by doing it like this and I am sure we will have another Instant Pot Strawberry Cake very soon.

Welcome to my Slimming World Curry Sauce. A delicious curry sauce that is perfect for chicken, potatoes, vegetables or even fish. If you want a quick Slimming World Curry then use this quick soup maker curry sauce as your base.
Have you ever wanted a quick Slimming World Curry Sauce?
One that you could just put on while your chicken is cooking on the stove and it be ready before your chicken. Then you can throw it into the wok and then mix in with your chicken and you have a healthy Slimming World friendly lunch, dinner or supper.
You see the thing that I HATE with a PASSION about Slimming World is the obsession with processed foods. Processed foods are really not good for your health and I’m noticing a trend here among Slimming World members.
You just have to look on the Slimming World hashtag on Instagram and it is full to bursting with people using processed foods as part of Slimming World. There is the flavoured Muller Light Yoghurts, the pasta sauces, the ready meals and worst of all the pot noodles.
I believe they have a similar opinion to me because they have replaced the obsession with pouring in a jar of pasta sauce over their food and more and more are turning to more wholesome diets like Paleo and Whole30 that allow you to break away from processed foods.
That is why I put together this Slimming World Curry Sauce as I wanted an all-purpose sauce. One that I could link to in a range of recipes and one that could be made with very little preparation time and be done and cooked in the time that the rest of your dish cooks.
Plus wouldn’t it be amazing if you could make this homemade curry sauce, your dinner and still be all done in less time than it takes for you to ring up a takeaway and have it delivered!
This Slimming World Curry Sauce is literally a 5 minute preparation and then it cooks as you are cooking the rest of your meal. Then a quick blend and in it goes.

It is also:

* Vegan friendly
* Vegetarian friendly
* Paleo friendly
* Whole 30 friendly

Plus best of all it is made from wholesome ingredients and you can actually feel proud of the fact that you are using a homemade curry sauce.
Then use it as your base for:

* Chip Shop Curry Sauce
* Chicken Curry
* Beef Curry
* Lamb Curry
* Fish Curry
* Seafood Curry
* Vegetable Curry
* Chickpea Curry

The list can actually go on and on. It doesn’t just have to be a Slimming World friendly curry sauce, that is just the starting point. There is just loads and loads of opportunities to use this in your home cooking.
Then you no longer have an excuse when you reach for a takeaway or when you open that big fat processed jar of curry sauce.
Though never mind just the health benefits of making your own curry sauce from scratch, also think of how much money that you are actually saving yourself!
My favourite way with this Slimming World Curry Sauce though, is to have this cooking in my soup maker, then when it is, I will dice some onion and chicken into the wok and cook it with some extra garam masala and some tandoori spice. Then I will add in some chickpeas, courgette and leek, then once they are cooked, add the blended curry sauce.
I then have lunch and a big filling nutritious lunch too.
I will then serve it with some of my favourite homemade Whole30 cauliflower rice and combined it makes a huge meal and I am always stuffed for hours and I forget how low carb it has all turned out.

If you want a delicious double layer pumpkin mousse then you need this in your life as it is a true, life changer. Made with Greek yoghurt, soft cheese, vanilla and caster sugar, Welcome to my easy pumpkin mousse recipe. If you want a delicious double layer pumpkin mousse then you need this in your life as it is a true, life changer. Made with Greek yoghurt, soft cheese, vanilla and caster sugar, it is not just easy but quick to make too.
I should shout out now and admit that I am GUILTY to loving a cool mousse. I love the texture and I love how simple a good mousse is to make and how delicious it can be.
I also love the fact that I can get my battered and bruised hand mixer out of the cupboard, brush off the dust and let it save my wrists and do the work for me.
I can make a double layer, a triple layer or even a single layer, put it in the freezer for a quick setting and hey I have delicious easy mousse.
Or if you fancy a delicious easy pudding on a Sunday, then why not have a mousse over a fruity jelly, for an amazing family friendly take on the British trifle.
My trifle would always involve a big layer of strawberry jelly, followed by a layer of vanilla whipped cream, followed by a layer of strawberry mousse, finished off with crushed up flake.
Actually – I can’t really take credit for that, as that is how my mum used to make it for Sunday dinner after we had the roast beef and Yorkshire puddings, but I do make this myself for my husband and the kids, so you could say it has been passed down a generation or two!
Or in this case – add in some delicious pumpkin puree and I have the BEST EVER easy pumpkin mousse. Then follow this up with a vanilla layer and sprinkle it with pumpkin seeds.
I always think of mousse and the separation of eggs but you can make a really quick and delicious one, by using a similar mixture to what you would use if you were making a cheesecake.
You can have the eggs, the soft cheese (it has to be Philly of course), the caster sugar and a Greek yoghurt to give it that creamy wow factor.
Then you use this as the base for many of your mousse recipes:

* Add in cocoa powder for a chocolate mousse
* Add pumpkin puree for a pumpkin mousse
* Add fresh strawberries for a strawberry mousse
* Add vanilla essence for a vanilla mousse
* Add banana and custard powder for banana custard mousse

And the list goes on and on and just makes me want to eat a LOT of creamy mousse!
Plus if you want a dessert and normally head out to buy a big tub of Ben & Jerry’s, then think next time you could make yourself something much lower in calories and much cheaper too.
In my easy pumpkin mousse, we start with a big fat pumpkin mousse layer, then we freeze it while we make the topping, then we add a vanilla layer on top. You can then serve this easy pumpkin mousse in your dessert glasses, in ramekins or in little serving dishes on the beach.
When we had our pumpkin mousse, we did so in the garden on a lovely warm day and we all commented that it was so nice having something so cool and refreshing. We even thought that it would make a great option in an ice lolly/popsicle too.
Now that is a possibility!
But my biggest reason for making an easy pumpkin mousse (and all my other mousses for that matter) is because I love to use my leftovers, I love to get a deal from some leftover food and I love to make new uses out of my food that I have not tried before.
I love trying new recipes and that is one of the great things that owning recipethis.com has given me.
I find, that even as complete foodie addicts that we often have a type when it comes to food. Food recipes that we eat regularly that are our favourites and we get really boring. As I know I used to. I would maybe have 50 recipes that I would cook all the time and it would be rare that I would try anything...]]>

Welcome to my half and half pumpkin pizza dough recipe. A delicious quick and simple pumpkin pizza dough recipe. Using half traditional pizza dough and half pumpkin pizza crust. The perfect in between if you want a squash pizza crust with some real pizza dough.
I love my pizza dough made from vegetables. It is the best. It’s a great way to reduce your carbs and then you feel less and less guilty about what you have just eaten. Then you can load it up with your usual favourite pizza toppings knowing that you can have that bit of cheese, knowing that your pizza dough is lower in calories than usual.
We have had that opinion so much, that so far, we have made the following veggie pizza doughs:

* Broccoli Pizza Dough
* Butternut Squash Pizza Crust
* Cauliflower Pizza Crust

But it got me thinking that whenever I do make a pizza dough from my favourite vegetables it is always rather costly. It’s the one time when people say that eating healthy is expensive that I agree with them.
I mean when you do a cauliflower pizza for example you will use a whole cauliflower. Then you will squeeze out all the excess water out of it after you have cooked it. This is a lot of water to go and then when you are done you will end up with a cauliflower dough ball of cauliflower, egg and cheese.
It will be a small cauliflower dough ball and then when you are done you are left with this small bit, that if you are lucky will cover a 8 inch pizza tray.
And you are like is that it????
You kind of wonder if there is a magician hiding somewhere with the rest of your cauliflower. I mean that can’t be it can it?
But it is.
But you want to reduce your carbs, you want to save money and you still want pizza so what do you do…….
Well instead you make yourself a half and half pumpkin pizza dough.
That way you have reduced your regular pizza dough amount by half, you still have a healthy portion of vegetables in your pizza crust and it will taste truly amazing.
Trust me when I say, this is the perfect in between for you.
A pizza dough that still has olive oil, flour, vegetables, egg and cheese.
It also allows you to have your flour, but you can at least say that you are eating it in moderation and getting healthier. Just perfect for if you are on a diet!
It’s a winner in the Milner house and you can use this pumpkin pizza dough for an entire range of pizza toppings. You can also swap the pumpkin pizza dough for butternut squash, broccoli, cauliflower or whatever vegetable that you have in.

Welcome to my Airfryer Pumpkin French Toast recipe here at recipethis.com. A delicious sweet pumpkin loaded French Toast in the Airfryer. Perfect for autumn when you want a big dose of warm comfort food. Fast and easy to make and both kids and the grownups will love it.
I used to hate French toast when I was little. Or anything for that matter that had a big egg presence. I would eat the yolk from a boiled egg and I would love the eggs used to make cakes with, but that was about it.
I am adding in the cake thing though, because like most grownups my grandparents would say that you can’t say you don’t like eggs and eat our sponge cake! But surely sponge cake doesn’t count right?
My mum would always try to wean me onto them and come up with a nicer way to have eggs, but she never got that far with me and even to this day I still don’t enjoy the white of a fried egg and will leave it for Dominic or Sofia to eat.
My aunt always made the most amazing cheese quiches (in fact this is her recipe) and there would always be a lot of cheese and a good mixture of egg and milk into the quiche centre. This meant that it never really felt like you had a huge egg explosion and then when I tried quiches away from hers, I never quite liked them.
When I was growing up though French Toast would always be called eggy bread as that was the British name for it, or my Grandma would call it Gypsy bread as that was the Irish name for it and she was Irish born.
I hated it though as it would literally be cheap white sliced bread, drowned in beaten egg and then cooked in the frying pan with loads of butter. There was no flavour to it and it was horrible.
But it is amazing how much our taste buds can change over the years. I like egg more than I did then but I don’t love it either.
I also love coloured peppers now but hated them as a kid, plus as a kid I loved mushrooms but can’t stand to even look at them now!
But if someone had presented me with Pumpkin French Toast in the Airfryer then I would have been sold on the fact. The idea that you have a delicious pumpkin flavour rather than feeling like your life has been taken over by eggs. Now that is my dream French toast that is for sure!
Yet the eggs still make the pumpkin French toast taste amazing and give it that delicious outside crust on the bread.
To make the pumpkin French toast you start by mixing together the pumpkin puree, milk and eggs. Then toss the sliced bread in the delicious French toast mixture and then after removing excess liquid, you cook it in the grill pan in your Airfryer.
It really is as simple as that to make Pumpkin French Toast.
My eldest son is also like me and is not that keen on eggs. I still haven’t managed to get him to eat boiled eggs, fried eggs or poached eggs. But he does love quiche, baked goods and my French toast. So if you do have someone that is not that keen on eggs then this is your plan B.
I would also add that it works out at less calories in the Airfryer, just because you are not needing butter or oil to cook it with. You simply lay the pumpkin French toast (uncrowded of course) into your Airfryer grill pan and then let the Airfryer do the work for you.
Plus if you have some leftover pumpkin puree that you want to use up and want something quick for breakfast then this is absolutely perfect for that.
So never mind talking about it, as I am getting super hungry at the thought, let’s just make a big batch of Pumpkin French Toast!!!


Airfryer Pumpkin French Toast


Introducing you to a delicious Pumpkin French Toast cooked in the Airfryer. Beautiful looking toast with a touch of autumn. Perfect for a quick comforting breakfast or lunch.

Delicious pumpkin pie flavoured pumpkin bread, cooked in the Airfryer and incredibly moist thanks to the added ingredient of Greek yoghurt.
To be October is the birth of the pumpkin:

I am referring to the time of the year when we are actually allowed to eat pumpkin rather than just eating it for eating pumpkin sake. The benefit of living here in Portugal is that unlike many other countries pumpkin is in season all year around.
We eat it for Easter, have it in dessert for the summer picnics, grill it on the barbecue in spring barbecues, have it in stews in December and love it when its traditionally eaten in October.
If you read any seasonal content on the internet and it’s a foodie theme, then I am sure you will be sick to death of pumpkin. Well you better turn away for the week as we have pumpkin week going on at RecipeThis.com this week. Well technically a squash week with 4 pumpkin recipes and 1 butternut squash recipe – but that is just me being particular.
And OMG we have had a fantastic time recipe testing all these different pumpkin recipes. To us it’s what autumn is all about.
The leaves are falling off the trees, it is no longer 40 degrees outside and instead is just 30 and the tourists are here in their 100’s rather than the 1000’s.. We can also get excited over pumpkin stews, pumpkin pie and best of all pumpkin bread.
That is why I decided to kickstart this week with teaching you how to make pumpkin bread in the Airfryer. It is one of those shockingly easy recipes to make.
Throw in the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, add the ingredients, mix well with a hand mixer and “hey presto” you have the most amazing moist pumpkin bread.
If you’re looking for good uses out of your leftover pumpkin pie filling, then it is great for that too.
Though for me, the attraction to learning how to make your own pumpkin bread is the fact that you can dump your ingredients into the bowl, mix with your hand mixer, throw them into a baking pan inside your Airfryer and then 15 minutes later you have pumpkin bread.
Not to mention that the pumpkin bread takes just 5 minutes to prepare. So that means that you have delicious pumpkin bread in just 20 minutes. Just think you couldn’t even get a takeaway ordered and delivered in that time.
Though it gets better – because sometimes you just don’t have the time to measure out your ingredients, this entire pumpkin bread recipe is made with tablespoons, so get out your tablespoon and let’s get making pumpkin bread.
This pumpkin bread is really healthy too, though it is not quite Paleo thanks to the Greek Yoghurt that turns it into my moist machine. But there is no gluten in it, no unwanted E numbers and if you want your kids eating a healthy bread for supper for when they come home from school then give them a slice of this.
My sons and my daughter loved my Airfryer Pumpkin Bread. They were so fast that there were not seconds left for me and surely mummy cook should get some seconds? Well it seems not!

Today would have been my Grandmas birthday. If she had lived to read this she would be 88 years old. She died from a fatal asthma attack just after I had turned 18 when she was just 70 years old.
I remember at the time what a shock it was. I mean when people have asthma, you just think they will be fine, they just have a lot of oxygen tanks, but you expect them to have years left in them yet.
It left my Grandad in complete shock and shocked us all. And she has been well missed ever since.
She was my dream grandma in many ways. She worshipped the ground I walked on and I worshipped the ground she walked on too. We had amazing picnics together, baked lots of rock buns, ate way too much cake and watched lots of British TV.
If it wasn’t for her, then I doubt I would be able to bake and she taught me a lot of the basics that I cook on a regular basis with my family now. I remember her showing me how to make the best ever shortcrust pastry, the most amazing melting moments and I was always in love with her sausage rolls.
I use her shortcrust pastry recipe whenever I can. It went into quiche, sausage rolls, picnic swirls, to name just a few.
But one thing that gets me is that she taught me how to be frugal. It was a case of:

If it is not broken, then don’t fix it!
Whenever there is the mention of a new camera, a new mobile phone, a new washing machine or a new kettle I always ask myself this.
This is probably the reason why we still have the same iron that was a wedding present in 2003, that I finally replaced my trainers last week after the soles fell off (I had worn them everyday for 5 years) and why I always get edgy about replacing my mobile phone when it still turns on but has faults.
But when it comes to kitchen gadgets I like to buy one that will last. I don’t want to be replacing it after a month, I want it to see out 5 years.
My favourite Philips Airfryer was in our kitchen for 5 years before it broke and we replaced it earlier this year. The same can be said for our soup maker and our favourite slow cooker is a 1980’s addition.
As well as this, we also own an ice cream maker, hand mixer, food processor, soup maker, Instant Pot, slow cooker and plenty of little gadgets like our Briefton Spiralizer.
We don’t mind spending money on the kitchen gadgets we own, they just MUST last and be something that we would use regularly.

Best of all. They’re built to last and we know that each of them will be here in 5 years time.
We know that thanks to the way our Grandparents taught us about frugality, that they are all important purchases that will last for a long time.
So thank you Grandma Kitty for teaching me to look after our kitchen gadgets and we just wish that you had been around to test out the spiralizer yourself. As I would have loved to giggle uncontrollably while you tried to get your head around yet another, modern piece of kitchen gadgetry.

Enjoy a delicious homemade pizza night in with a butternut squash pizza crust, plenty of cheese, lots of fresh tomatoes and plenty of oregano. Perfect for if you love pizza but want to keep it Syn Free.
Come on confession time please……how often have you supposed to be losing weight and watching what you eat and then you ring up for a Friday night pizza to be delivered to your door???
I probably should say that I have done this a lot and probably the reason why I went from arriving at university in the autumn of 2004 weighing in at 10 stone to moving abroad in the summer of 2008 weighing in at just over 16 stone. I mean where did those 6 stone come from?
Yes you guessed it – the takeaway leaflets through the door got me hooked!
We used to have a 10 inch cheese and tomato pizza, a couple of burgers, fries and onion rings. Dominic loved his burgers and I loved my pizzas. So this meant we would have both. He would enjoy his burgers, some fries and a slice of my pizza. I would enjoy maybe half the pizza along with the onion rings and fries.
But my big mistake would be warming up the leftover pizza for breakfast.
No wonder I put on so much weight. Maybe if we had shared a pizza and we didn’t have leftovers for breakfast that maybe I would have just put on 2 stone instead of 6 stone, but who knows?
Needless to say, I should have been making my own pizzas at home instead. Not only is it more fun to make a pizza yourself, but you can then make a much healthier version and have a Syn Free Slimming World Pizza Fakeaway.
Butternut Squash Pizza Crust
I love butternut squash and it is true addiction of mine. I often get lazy with it and just have it baked and then served with Bolognese, after all it is so easy and simple to do. But there is so much more you can do with butternut squash and making a butternut squash pizza crust is like a dream come true.
You see whenever I made a traditional vegetable pizza crust I often do so with cauliflower. But there is a REALLY big problem there you see cauliflower holds a LOT of water and can drive you a bit crackers with how much cauliflower you end up left with once you have squeezed out all the excess water.
But butternut squash on the other hand carries a lot less water than cauliflower does, making it a bit more economical and OMG a butternut squash pizza crust is truly amazing.
It’s one of those things, that until you try it, you don’t know what you’re missing out on.
To make a good quality butternut squash pizza crust you just need a few simple ingredients:

* Butternut Squash
* Eggs
* Cheese
* Oats
* Seasoning

That’s it. It’s a case of draining the water from the butternut squash, combining the easy ingredients and then “hey presto” you have a delicious butternut squash pizza crust. Then just like if you were making a regular pizza you would just load it up with all your favourite ingredients.
I am a cheese and tomato girl when it comes to pizzas. I normally don’t put anything else on them beyond that as I love the simplicity of how well cheese and tomato go together and they taste so good don’t they?
Also in this butternut squash recipe I am using the grill pan in the Airfryer because it gives it a great shape, lets it breathe just like cooking in the oven does, plus you have a brilliant bottom crusty texture.
When you bite into this pizza your guests will be surprised that it is in fact a butternut squash pizza crust and would just assume that it was the real thing. But it tastes so good, like I said is Syn Free and is so quick to make as ...]]>

Delicious quick prep hassleback potatoes with garlic and cheese, perfect for a quick side in the Airfryer.
I will not lie. I have had a long, long addiction to potatoes and I doubt it will end anytime soon. If I want comfort food then out comes the humble spud.
I used to love scrubbing the dirt from my grandads potatoes that he had grown on his allotment. I would then use them to either help him make jacket potatoes, his homemade fishcakes or his famous winter soup. My Grandad if he had still been alive today would be 100 years old and unlike many men of his generation he loved to cook and cooked more than my Grandma did.
All his fruit, vegetables and potatoes from his allotment were delicious and I would hold onto them as I sat in his front basket on his push bike as he rode us home.
Then as I got older and started cooking for my own family, I found that as I learnt how to cook that the potatoes played a key part in the meal. You would have roast potatoes, more jacket potatoes, garlic potatoes, fries, potato gratin and best of all pizza fries.
But one thing I have been yet to embrace on RecipeThis.com has to be hassleback potatoes. I have no idea why not, it just has not come into our meals….well until this summer.

This summer has been the year of trying lots of new Airfryer potato recipes and top of the list has been hassleback potatoes. I love jacket potatoes and in my mind they take too long to cook and it never feels like the potato can breathe enough. It has its couple of pricks from the fork and that is it.
But if you make hassleback potatoes it is like jacket potatoes meet the sautéed potatoes. You have a delicious crispy potato, it has been able to breathe as it has cooked, yet it still reminds you of the old school jacket potatoes.
My dream airfryer potato really.

It takes just 3 minutes to prepare, then you cook the hassleback potatoes for 15 minutes, add some more delicious flavourings, cook for another 10 minutes and then hey presto you have the Airfryer potatoes of your dreams.
You can make these for your kids for their dinner, have them as a side for your meal or even smash them up afterwards to make crushed garlic potatoes. The choices are just endless.
Just think in the old days, people used to spend an hour making jacket potatoes because of how long they took to bake in the oven. You didn’t even have a microwave to speed up the process back then. But now you have an Airfryer and hassleback potatoes are the best of both worlds.


Airfryer Hassleback Potatoes


Delicious cheesy, garlicky hassleback potatoes cooked in the Airfryer. Quick prep and quicker to cook than jacket potatoes.


* Airfryer
* Airfryer Grill Pan
* 4 Large Potatoes
* 20 g Cheddar Cheese
* 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
* 1 Tbsp Garlic Puree
* 1 Tbsp Fresh Rosemary
* 1 Tbsp Parsley
* Salt & Pepper



* Place 4 large potatoes onto a chopping board. Using the hassleback potatoes method slice the 4 potatoes.
* Sprinkle salt, pepper and parsley over the potatoes (so that some of it makes its way into the gaps) and then place in the Airfryer inside the grill pan.
* Cook for 15 minutes at 180c/360f.

Welcome to my Airfryer Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe here at recipethis.com. Filled with a delicious flourless banana muffin mixture, then topped with delicious creamy and cheesy cream cheese vanilla frosting. Lower in calories than most cupcakes, gluten free and as delicious as any banana cupcake should be.
Today’s banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting are sponsored by UEi Test Instruments and their folding pocket digital thermometer.
Yesterday on the blog we had chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, so today we decided to go with banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, but to make it slightly healthier so that there was less guilt in each bite you take.
Yes we really do have healthy cupcakes.
Plus it doesn’t mean that they don’t taste good, because they do, but just by being selective with ingredients, we have created a newer kid friendly version.
They are free of:

* Butter
* Flour
* Caster Sugar
* Brown Sugar
* Icing Sugar

And instead we have:

* Bananas
* Gluten Free Oats
* Greek Yoghurt
* Soft Cheese
* Honey

So as you can see you are getting your sugar kick from the honey instead. It also uses gluten free oats as a flour alternative, along with bananas as an alternative to fat.
Plus it is great on bananas that have gone brown on the outside. I mean do you have kids that refuse to eat bananas from the fruit bowl just because they have some colour on them that is not bright yellow?
Well I know I have. He looks at them like they are mouldy food, that should be left there to rot. But what I do is either use them to make banana cupcakes (like these) or they end up going into banana bread instead.
Plus they also become very light and fluffy thanks to the Greek Yoghurt and the gluten free oats. Plus if like me you hate almond flour, coconut flour and such like, then this is your plan B and gluten free are a lot cheaper than coconut flour too.
These banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting are just so easy to make too.
I actually call them my Blend & Pour Banana Muffins:

That is because you literally add all your banana muffin ingredients into the blender, blend it and then pour your mixture into your muffin/cupcake tins.
Then while they your banana muffins are cooking in the Airfryer (7 at a time in just 7 minutes) you can be making your cupcake topping with your hand mixer.
Then fridge and serve.
As simple as that.
Then you could change this for other fruit that you like, add an extra flavour to it such as maple syrup, or like me just have them with a lot of vanilla essence as they make banana cupcakes taste so good.
We served these banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting as part of one of our summer picnics. Plus we often give them (minus the cream cheese frosting) to our 1 year old and he loves playing with them (rather than eating them) and you will need the hoover out after he has tucked in.


Airfryer Banana Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe


Delicious flourless banana cupcakes with a flourless banana muffin base and topped with a delicious cream cheese frosting = the perfect banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.


* UEI Test Instruments Folding Pocket Digital Thermometer
* Airfryer
* Hand Mixer

Banana Muffins:

* 2 Large Bananas
* 2 Large Eggs
* 250 g Greek Yoghurt
* 175 g Gluten Free Oats
* 4 Tbsp Honey

Welcome to my Airfryer Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe here at recipethis.com. Discover the easiest way EVER to make chocolate cupcakes with a moist chocolate cupcake batter, followed by the most delicious ever chocolately cream cheese frosting.
These chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting are sponsored by KPKitchen and their cake decorating kit.
The first time I ever tried chocolate cupcakes I absolutely hated them. I mean I actually gave them away to my son as I just couldn’t finish them. I mean, seriously this is me, the biggest chocolate addict to ever live and here I was finding a chocolate cupcake too sickly and unable to finish it!
We were actually at DisneyWorld at the time and it was 5 years ago and it was my first time in the United States.
My baked goods prior to this was usually a slice of chocolate cake, lemon buns, chocolate chip cookies, or a mountain of chocolate.
Yet I had always wanted to try a chocolate cupcake, but just hadn’t had the chance as there is not much call for such a thing here in Portugal. We are more like France and Spain and into pastries with lots of butter instead.
I think the reason I didn’t like it, is because here in Europe they just don’t add that much sugar to them and the icing sugar we use is not as strong.
It was a case of being brought up on different flavours.
Well I spent ages thinking this.
Then I had a chance to test out another Americans chocolate cupcakes and found that they tasted amazing. I think I had just tried a bad one and the real deal was so much better.
It is such a shame that my first taste of an American chocolate cupcake was a bad one and I was now having this brand new love affair with chocolate cupcakes especially if they were made with a cream cheese frosting.
But when I got home, I decided that I loved the idea of cupcakes and I wanted to make my own. I wanted them with less sugar and a creamier texture. I also felt that the cupcake I originally tried wasn’t moist either and tasted heavy.
You know that horrible feeling when you try a chocolate bun or a slice of chocolate cake and it turns out to be heavy and doesn’t have that light, moist feeling of a quality cake.
But since then there have been a lot of experiences and I am very much a chocolate cupcakes convert.

In these Airfryer Chocolate Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, I am showing you my favourite ever way to make a cupcake. I am using my chocolate cake batter as the base of the cupcakes and then the cream cheese frosting is made with my favourite soft cheese along with organic cocoa powder, lots of brown sugar and a few extra added ingredients.
It’s a dream come true for chocolate cupcakes. Just because it is so easy to use and is perfect for when you have some leftover cake batter from when you are making a cake and for using up some of your soft cheese that you have stored in your fridge.
In our house, we have all of these ingredients in, so it is perfect for when you have a chocolate cupcake craving and you want to make some with some delicious homemade cream cheese frosting.
I think they went down well in our house though as they were gone within a blink of an eye. I am sure someone stole my last one…..I wonder who I can blame for that????
Well he is 16 years old, is skinny, has the best toned abs that I have ever seen and makes me sick that he eats more chocolate than me and never even puts a kilo on.
I wonder who I am talking about ?

If there is just ONE Instant Pot recipe that you MUST make it has to be Instant Pot Caramel.  I often get emails from either potential (or brand new) Instant Pot users. Welcome to how to make Instant Pot Caramel from condensed milk. If there is just ONE Instant Pot recipe that you MUST make it has to be Instant Pot Caramel.
 I often get emails from either potential (or brand new) Instant Pot users. They are all fascinated by the electric pressure cooker trend and want to know (considering they can cook good) what is the point in them owning the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker?
Well you can see it from their point of view can’t you?

* They like cooking
* They hate the idea of batch cooking
* They are not in a huge rush so a 40 minute chicken doesn’t appeal to them
* They are good at peeling their boiled eggs
* They like the smell of a warm stew in the oven

Actually, I think I just described me and the hubby!!!
Instant Pot cooking is very much about being able to cook an 8 hour pulled pork in less than an hour, being easy for people that are terrible at cooking and a fantastic option for if you hate peeling eggs.

But if none of that bothers you then why get an Instant Pot?
Well for me it comes down to one thing and one thing only. You can turn condensed milk into caramel in just 40 minutes instead of 4 hours. I mean that is a truly amazing time saver. This has nothing to do with whether you are an excellent cook or not, but about an act of magic.
Dominic (my husband of nearly 15 years) was a chef when we met. He is excellent in the kitchen and has a natural ability when it comes to cooking. When I said that I was getting an electric pressure cooker he was far from pleased, as we like to cook so much.
But when he realised he could make his favourite caramel so fast I had him. He was hooked.
Therefore if you are trying to sell the Instant Pot to someone then tell them about the caramel and that same caramel can then be used in loads of your favourite dishes and you can save a lot of time in your kitchen.
 Our favourite so far is our Airfryer caramel cheesecake. The main cheesecake is cooked in the Airfryer but the caramel is made in the Instant Pot. Or a take on the classic dessert Banoffee Pie with the pie being made in the Instant Pot.
It saved us over 3 hours in the kitchen that’s for sure. Plus if you make the Airfryer cheesecake then you can cook in the Airfryer while the caramel cooks in the Instant Pot and it makes you sound so organised.
One Ingredient Instant Pot Caramel

Start with a big can of condensed milk, remove the labels, place in the Instant Pot cook for 40 minutes on manual and then you have the most delicious caramel ever.
Though maybe I should level with you. As a child I never ever had caramel from a can of condensed milk. In fact I never even knew you could until Dominic mentioned it after we got our Instant Pot. He told me how he always had it cooking on the stove for 4 hours when he was little. Now I am making up for lost time and a childhood that was missing a lot of caramel binges.

Welcome to my Slimming World Pepperoni & Cheese Pizza Chips Fakeaway night in. Munch your way through a Slimming World Fakeaway of pizza and chips with very little Syns. Perfect for a Friday night in for two.
Come on be honest…what were your pre-Slimming World takeaways like? Did you ring for a pizza? A doner kebab? A curry? A Chinese?
Well for us we used to ring for a takeaway pizza.
I was at university so we lived in the university district of a big city and that meant that we had a LOT of different special offers for students. There were about 5 leaflets that had been pushed through our door when we moved in.
They all came with buy one get one free on the pizzas and the pizzas were absolutely delicious. I would order a cheese pizza with cheesy chips (I was always a sucker for those) along with some Diet Coke and some onion rings.
Totally bad for you and so tasty at the same time.
Dominic preferred a burger so that would mean that I would have a pizza all to myself. I could never manage it all though so it was no surprise that I had the leftovers the day after.
When I arrived at university I weighed in at 10stone and 2 years later I was 15stone. No wonder really. Add to this a couple of all inclusive holidays and I had gone from being slim to clinically obese.
Plus because there was never enough hours in the day we would be having our pizza and chips takeaway up to 4 times a week. I was at university full time, then I was starting my online career, then I was a mum to a toddler and a wife too. It was just a crazy time.
I am now around the 12stone mark with a couple of stone left to lose to get me back to where I was and that is why I don’t have any of those real takeaways anymore and the inspiration behind my Slimming World Chips fakeaway.

Beat The Takeaway 20 Minute Slimming World Chips
In the old days when we used to ring a takeaway, we were so lazy that we would argue over who would ring up. Neither of us wanted to go to the door to collect it or ring it up. So it was one got one job and one got the other.
But by the time we had rung up and ordered our dinner and waited for it to come it would often be a good half an hour. They promoted a 20 minute turnaround time, but it was NEVER that quick! Then after that, you would have to put the food in the microwave to warm it up as it had got cold on the way to deliver it.
So I decided to set us a challenge. Unlike 2014 when we were spending our evenings watching British Cable TV and ordering greasy takeaways, we now have Netflix along with an Airfryer and with a Netflix marathon being planned we have 20 minutes to put together a delicious round of Slimming World friendly pizza fries.
Even better than that they will be Virtually Syn Free and be as low in calories as you could possibly get!
So the question is – can you put the timer on and achieve delicious Slimming World Chips with pizza loaded on top in 20 minutes or less???
Well the timer has been set….

Welcome to my Airfryer Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe. I love banana bread and this is even better loaded up with quality cacao powder and plenty of honey and bananas. If you’re looking for a Paleo chocolate banana bread recipe then look no further.
This delicious Paleo Airfryer Chocolate Banana Bread recipe is sponsored by Kakosi and their quality cacao powder.
Okay confession time. Not just a little confession but a really BIG one for my fellow Paleo and healthy eating followers……
When I was growing up (well actually I was still doing it when I turned 30) if you wanted chocolate powder in your baking you would buy some hot chocolate powder such as Cadburys and use that as your chocolate ingredient.
So if you wanted to make chocolate biscuits, chocolate muffins or even a milkshake then you would turn to the hot chocolate.
It was like many processed foods and the use of them, you did what other people had taught you to do and you never really truly questioned it. You just did it. A bit like when you are very small and you learn from other people around you.
I had never questioned the fact that the hot chocolate might be full of processed rubbish, additives or excessive amounts of sugar, or even mass produced in factories. I just did it.
In fact, the only thing I did question was the price. I mean it always feels like branded hot chocolate powder costs the earth considering it is something that in reality is mass produced. I remember accepting the cost on the grounds that we would be using it for months and how many chocolate chip cookies it would make.
Then I went Paleo and my thoughts on processed foods and in particular products stuffed with sugar changed my opinion on how I baked.
I suddenly wanted healthy and tried the real thing and realised that baking (whether Paleo or not) tasted amazing when you had real cacao in it. Plus compared to branded hot chocolate it actually worked out at the same price. And lets face it, we would much rather pay the same for a quality product rather than something that is overpriced rubbish.
This is what our grandparents used to have in their bedtime cocoa and I just don’t know why the generation in between became so obsessed with processed foods or in this instance processed drinks.
I love the fact that when it comes to cacao you can just get your container out of the cupboard and then use it for whatever baking you are into at the time.
Today I am making Airfryer Chocolate Banana Bread. I have done banana bread in the past and it was amazing and I thought it was about time that I did a chocolately Paleo version.
When we first got into Paleo food a couple of years ago, our teen son would do a runner out of the kitchen. Yet now he embraces it and loves it. When we made this chocolate banana bread recipe there was plenty of leftovers and before I knew it, I found him in typical teenage boy position, eating it with his hands from the fridge with the fridge wide open. I am not sure at what age they discover how to get a plate out and slice food, but we are not quite there yet!
In this banana bread recipe I will be using a good mix of bananas, honey, gluten free oats and this cacao powder. Mix everything together in a mixing bowl, throw it into your Airfryer baking pan and hey presto you have chocolate banana bread.
Yes it is really that simple.

Delicious warm garlic bread that takes just 6 minutes to prepare, cook and serve. A perfect use of your leftover French bread and perfect for a quick snack or a side for lunch or dinner. Welcome to my Airfryer Garlic Bread Recipe. Delicious warm garlic bread that takes just 6 minutes to prepare, cook and serve. A perfect use of your leftover French bread and perfect for a quick snack or a side for lunch or dinner.
Just look at this scary food waste statistic:

680,000 Tonnes Of Bread Is Wasted Every Year In The UK
You could cure world hunger with that amount of bread.
The UK as you are aware is just a small island. Its tiny, you can even get from the North of England to the South of England in one day. People in the UK love their bread, yet as a tiny island that loves its bread it throws away 680,000 tonnes worth of the stuff.
I mean isn’t that crazy?
Plus if the UK waste this much for a small island then how much does Europe waste as a whole? The USA? Australia? Asia? I just dread to think.
I may add I used to be a food waster too. But never bread. After all, it is so easy to freeze if you have some leftover and it’s very hard not to eat bread as it is just so, so delicious.
But people do.
I was more a lettuce waster.
I would buy some lettuce to have in a salad. Then forget about it and realise that my lettuce had turned colour in the fridge and suddenly looked disgusting. But I am always trying my best not to waste any food that is for sure!
But with bread it is hard to remember sometimes especially if you have just a little of it left over.
I was in this position a few weeks ago.
I had bought a French stick for bread the day before. Well actually, we had bought two, because we love them that much!
I had decided to make my little girl some French toast with it. But like most toddlers she doesn’t have much of an appetite. So the leftover bread and had been left on our worktop overnight and the next of the day it was really hard.
I am talking so hard that you could crack eggs on it and use it as a rolling pin. It was crazy hard.
But what amazes me is that if you attach egg to hard bread as if you are doing French toast it will come back to life and it’s amazing how soft and lovely and warm you could make your bread.
You can rescue any bread like this. Dip it into some milk and egg (that have been mixed together) than add your topping as usual, then it is like your bread has a heartbeat again and is as good as new.
In this garlic bread recipe I am using my hard bread to make the softest Airfryer garlic bread with a lovely crunch on the outside, but so soft in the middle.
The garlic bread has a lovely flavour to it and then you wouldn’t believe in a million years that it was using your old bread. You would in fact think that your garlic bread recipe is a result of some just bought premium bread.
Plus it is so quick to make garlic bread in the Airfryer. I used my Airfryer Grill Pan as it does the business in style and the end result is the most amazing garlic bread you have ever tried.
Though just a thought – am I allowed to call it Airfryer garlic bread recipe or should it be named hard as nails garlic bread with a touch of French toast?
I think I will stick with Airfryer Garlic Bread Recipe as it sounds more elegant ? ?
But all jokes aside, if you are like me with leftover bread that has seen better days then just think you can create the best ever garlic bread in the Airfryer in just 6 minutes and it’s a bit more original (and less mess too) than just getting out the food processor and turning it into breadcrumbs. Plus I have more breadcrumbs in my freezer than I know what to do with!

You can’t live on the Mediterranean and not adore Italia... Welcome to how to make bruschetta in the Airfryer. A delicious quick lunch, dinner or supper in the Airfryer. If you want to learn how to make bruschetta then this is the Airfryer recipe for you.
You can’t live on the Mediterranean and not adore Italian food. In fact you can live pretty much anywhere on planet earth and not love Italian food as it just so, so delicious.
I love pizza, pasta and can’t turn down some meatballs. I also love garlic spinach, risotto and of course the way the Italians cook a cabbage bake. I am also addicted to my local Italian Pizza Buffet too. And don’t get me started by how delicious Italian bread is.
Quite often at home we will be cooking Italian food.
The pan will always start with some onion, garlic and olive oil and then we will decide on the spare of the moment, exactly what Italian food we are about to cook.
For example tomorrow we are hitting the beach and are making a delicious tuna pasta to take with us as part of our beach picnic. We will also be having leftover bruschetta from tonight and we will have a great day out.
The sun will be shining, the kids will be playing with their footballs and the ocean will be beautiful and clear, perfect for the adults to do some watersports.
Oh wait mother living in fantasyland alert – I have 2 under 3s and they never let me sleep through the night. So more likely that I will not have the energy to move, let alone hire a pedalo!!!
My ideal day out is all about a reminder of how much I love the slow paced Mediterranean way of life.
Back in July, we celebrated 9 years living in the Algarve and we wanted to celebrate it with some delicious bruschetta. After all it is one of those simple suppers to make with fresh ciabatta bread, fresh tomatoes, fresh garlic and plenty of Mediterranean cheese.
As soon as I said to the kids that we were having this for dinner they were all excited. They too love the flavours of the Mediterranean and you can see that their noses are on full alert as our kitchen smells of fresh garlic and tomatoes.
This morning Dominic headed out to the supermarket and bought a really big ciabatta roll for us all to share. We then chopped it into pieces and made bruschetta in the Airfryer. There is very little preparation involved, so in between making our picnic for the beach for the next day, we made this lovely Airfryer Bruschetta.
If you are new to your Airfryer or have the new Airfryer Grill Pan and you want to try it out, then I thoroughly suggest that you give bruschetta a go. It’s something different to do with your bread and so delicious.

I wanted to talk to you today about my battle with Photosensitive Epilepsy and what it is really like for people like me when it comes to food videos. I know. I know. Welcome to Photosensitive Epilepsy and You Tube Food Videos. I wanted to talk to you today about my battle with Photosensitive Epilepsy and what it is really like for people like me when it comes to food videos.
I know. I know. We all hate it when a food blogger goes off topic and talks about something really random on their food blog and then calls it LIFESTYLE content. As I note more and more people are doing that.
I am normally the one doing the moaning and shouting that they should JUST post food content!!!
I mean I don’t want to know that somebody’s kids have started school and then have 50 pictures of them in their school uniform. Or when they have had a bereavement and there are 100 pictures in one post of their deceased Grandma.
Then they follow it up with another 10 posts over the month with more granny posts. I mean come on everyone – I am here for recipes and even though it is a sad and my grandmas have died too, it’s not something that you want to see in the masses.
Plus its great for the odd personal story on Instagram, but if you are there visiting a food blog. Then HELLO bloggers you want to see actual FOOD.
That is why there has never been a post dedicated to the birth of my latest child (he is a year old this month BTW) or how it went introducing my daughter to solids or her nappy training moments.
Of course I mention them a LOT. I mean how do you not as a mum that is super proud of her 3 amazing kids? But it will be within the context of the recipe or the cooking tips and not as them being the main topic of conversation.
I have shared with you my daughters favourite yoghurt, making custard creams with my little girl, Easter baking, Christmas baking and so forth. But at the end of the day, on all accounts there would be a recipe featured on the blog and it would just be a theme in the cooking.
But now I wanted to talk to you about Photosensitive Epilepsy as I have it and it’s such an important topic when it comes to food blogging and the experience of your readers.
What Is Epilepsy?

Some people are confused about exactly what Epilepsy is so here is the facts:

* Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by different types of seizures
* Some types of epilepsy are more serious than others
* Epilepsy can vary from staring into space to severe shaking fits
* Many physical injuries can occur from epilepsy
* There is often stigma attached to epilepsy
* Brain injuries are often linked to epilepsy
* Over 39 million people suffer from epilepsy
* Epilepsy means “seizure” in Greek

My Epilepsy Back Story
When my mum gave birth to me in the January of 1982 I had a stroke while she gave birth. It was a birth trauma that left me with slight brain damage. This wasn’t made aware of for many years as when my mum questioned my appearance with the midwives she was put down as being a crazy new mum that was having an overprotective, hormone moment.
Fast forward to my school years….The teachers quizzed my parents that I might be deaf (or hard of hearing) because I didn’t always respond as quick as what the other kids would. It was like I didn’t hear them or something.
Several tests later it was revealed that I had epilepsy.
It was called “Petit Mal Epilepsy” and is also known as Absent Seizures. In other words, you stare into space mid conversation without meaning to. On a plus point you would not have a proper seizure though.
I was told that I might grow out of it and that it is associated wi...]]>

Welcome to my Airfryer Falalfel Burger recipe. A delicious veggie burger that is perfect for any season and jammed packed with flavour. It has also been bulked up with cheese for the ultimate Falafel burger.
I did a Slimming World Greek Fakeaway night last month on the blog (thanks to everyone that has sent their kind messages about the recipes) and it was great fun.
It gave me the chance to explore more the Mediterranean food that not only do I love, but that I bring my kids up on. I got to eat the best of the Greek food including homemade hummus, dipping sauce, homemade pita breads and not to forget the most amazing falafel balls ever.
If you are new to falafel and falafel burgers then basically they are the most delicious meatballs for vegans that you will ever try.
Here is a picture of them:

They are also equally popular as really big juicy vegan burgers. But even though I love vegan burgers todays falafel recipe is a falafel veggie burger.
Just because I love something in between that is loaded with cheese. A vegetarian option that is high cheese, high chickpeas and perfect for a very quick Airfryer burger. Something that you can make in a rush without having to worry that time is not on our side.
Introducing you to my Airfryer Falafel Burgers. They have everything that you need for a filling dinner. Including chickpeas, onion, lemon, oats, garlic, cheese and plenty of herbs and spices.
You can then finish them off with a delicious Greek sauce. Then of course they wouldn’t be the same without the hubbys most amazing pull apart bread buns.
You can also use my falafel burger is a base for other great food. For example the chickpea, oats, onion and garlic is the base for any burgers. Then you could go on a tour of the world to make them suit your favourite cuisine.

* Add coriander, curry paste and lime for Thai
* Add Moroccan spice blend and some lamb mince for Moroccan
* Add jerk paste along with pineapple to make them Jamaican
* Add jalapenos along with Mexican seasoning to make them Mexican
* Add garam masala along with extra coriander and make them Indian

Just think chickpeas are like your best friend and even though I love them in a falafel burger, they are so flexible and can be used for a whole range of things.
The great thing about owning RecipeThis.com is that I have explored a lot of foods that I would never have thought of before. I had never bought chickpeas, haricot beans of black beans until I started this site and it is truly amazing how great they make burgers in the Airfryer.
So whether you are a vegan, vegetarian or a BIG meat eater, get involved with chickpeas and great a wonderful masterpiece and make good use out of your Airfryer as they are a truly remarkable bit of kit.

A new and exciting way to enjoy avocados. Dipped in a delicious coriander and lime gluten free crust and perfect for sharing. A new favourite in the Milner household. Welcome to my Air Fried Avocado Slices. A new and exciting way to enjoy avocados. Dipped in a delicious coriander and lime gluten free crust and perfect for sharing. A new favourite in the Milner household.
Let me start by thanking PureBoo Bamboo Cutting Boards for sponsoring this air fried avocado slices recipe. We got to slice and dice our avocado in style thanks to their unique chopping board.
I must admit I was a virgin as far as avocados were concerned until my late 20’s. In fact the first time I ever had one was in my favourite detox smoothie. It was a diet one that was doing the rounds at the time and was written for Katie Price while she lost weight ready for her wedding. I gave it a go (its on the blog here) when we still lived in England and have done it a couple of times since moving to Portugal.
But whenever I did, the recipe called for some avocado and I would never eat it and it just looked like fat to me and I would hardly drink olive oil, so the avocado was going to go directly into the smoothie and not into my mouth in solid form.
That is how it was for several years until I discovered Paleo and decided to see what the fuss was all about with eating avocados.
I tried one. And OMG I fell into foodie heaven. All of a sudden I was hooked on them and couldn’t stop. I would buy 12 a week from my local street trader and avocados were my new best friend.
I would have them with my chicken because it’s the law that a chicken salad must involve chicken and avocado. I would have them in a nice pretty boat with a fried egg just because it’s a great healthy start to the day or best of all as the most delicious avocado sauce to cook your meat in.
It also became my pregnancy craving while I was carrying my youngest. I used to eat at least 2 of them a day and even now as he is learning to walk he still loves avocado just as much as when he was growing inside of me.
But did you know?..…..I have never actually tried them warm. They have always been cool. Even when I had them with the fried egg I would wait until they had cooled down.

I just didn’t like the idea of it. But I am all for trying new things and my new thing is finally here in the shape of Air Fried Avocado Slices. They are my new addiction and served with a delicious thousand island sauce and I am in. I just want to eat air fried avocado slices all the time now and have found that air fried avocado is one of those things that we should all have in our diet.
You can take them to work, take them to school snack on them, have them for breakfast or for a side for dinner.
However you have your Air Fried Avocado Slices just remember these are Whole 30 compliant, Paleo, perfect for low carb diets and so much more.


Air Fried Avocado Slices Recipe


Air fried avocado slices breaded in the most amazing topping. Cooked in the Airfryer, giving you the ultimate wow factor. Your girlfriends, husbands and kids will adore this avocado recipe.


* PureBoo Bamboo Cutting Board
* Airfryer
* Airfryer Grill Pan
* Blender
* 2 Large Avocados
* 200 g Gluten Free Oats
* 3 Limes (juice and rind)
* 3 Tbsp Thousand Island
* 4 Tbsp Coriander
* 2 Tbsp Mexican Seasoning
* 1 Tbsp Basil
* Salt & Pepper



* Place your avocados onto your cutting board. Remove the skin and chop the avocados into similar shapes to potato wedges.
* Squeeze lime juice of one of the limes over the avocados.]]>

The Slimming World Lasagne dream come true with a real cheese sauce (no eggs mixed with cheese) and perfect for veggie loaded days on Slimming World. Where should I start with my love for a lasagne? Welcome to my Syn Free Slimming World Lasagne. The Slimming World Lasagne dream come true with a real cheese sauce (no eggs mixed with cheese) and perfect for veggie loaded days on Slimming World.
Where should I start with my love for a lasagne? It is one of those meals that I absolutely adore and can never get enough of.
When I go to Pizza Hut I love their mini lasagne cups and I also love making a really big one that is loaded with extra cheese and then baking it in the oven. We will then serve it with either a salad or some chips.
It is also my son Kyle’s favourite food in the world and he is always asking me when is he going to get the next lasagne. He is as skinny as a rake and sometimes he wishes we were still the size of a house, so that he could have lasagne all the time.
But the thing is lasagne can be made healthy, with a lot less calories and still be full to bursting with loads of cheese and a creamy cheese sauce, along with mince beef, tomatoes, loads of oregano and plenty of garlic.
I love lasagne so much that this is the third lasagne that I have made on RecipeThis.com. I also have a pork lasagne and of course a vegetarian version. But I decided to make one especially for Slimming World as I have been getting so mad about the Slimming World Lasagnes that are doing the rounds. They are made like an omelette with loads of eggs and no cheese sauce. I am like…..what no cheese sauce?
There must be a better way surely?
Therefore this is my Slimming World Lasagne – totally Syn Free by just using healthy extras for your cheese and milk.
I have to say that the big winner with me on Slimming World has to be the Healthy Extra A’s. You see I absolutely love my cheese. I am a cheese and milk freak, so having these healthy extras means that I can keep my Slimming World Lasagne completely Syn Free. Then have my lasagne whenever I like without having to worry.
To start with, one thing that really annoys me about my fellow Slimming World members is the lack of fruit and vegetables in their diet. You see plate after plate of dinner pictures on Instagram with very few vegetables on their plates (if any) and a plateful of processed foods and that is NOT a healthy lifestyle.
When I lost weight (we have lost more than 4 stone each) the biggest difference to our health was an increase in vegetables and a majority reduction in processed foods.
Food optimising on Slimming World should be about the speed foods and the protein foods. The foods that should be the star of your dinner plate and that is EXACTLY what I want to achieve with this lasagne.
There are more vegetables in this dish than anything else including:

* Tomatoes
* Red Pepper
* Onions
* Cauliflower
* Leeks
* Carrots

This Slimming World Lasagne also includes fresh garlic and is great for a family dinner and I bet your family wouldn’t even be able to tell that this is a Syn Free Lasagne and would just assume it was a traditional unhealthy one.
I am also cooking the Slimming World Lasagne in the Airfryer. This helps crisp it up better and because we have the Airfryer baking pan, it makes it the perfect size. Plus as it is smaller than a big oven tray it means that you don’t over eat and then you can serve it with a healthy salad.


Slimming World Lasagne Recipe


The most delicious ever Slimming World Syn Free Lasagne. Loaded with several different vegetables and perfect for Saturday night family suppers.

Welcome to my Slimming World Beer Battered Fish & Chips Fakeaway night in. Enjoy delicious beer battered fresh cod fillet with delicious homemade chips and served with my favourite garlic mayonnaise.
I grew up in a boring seaside town in the north east of England. I say it was boring because it really was, especially through the eyes of a teenage girl. You had to jump on the train for 40 minutes to the nearest city and the shops were very limited.
There were druggies in the town that wondered where they would shoplift from next in order to get their next fix. There was a bit of petty crime too but nothing too serious. In other words it was one of those towns where nothing ever happened.
The job prospects were either working as a waitress or working in a care home and that is exactly what the majority of the people I went to school with now do. Well apart from the lucky ones that escaped the town and moved somewhere with more prospects.
Though maybe I took it a bit far? I moved 2 hours in the opposite direction for four years, followed by our move to Portugal nine years ago.
The elderly visited the town for their summer holidays, religiously every summer and it had more people than walking space and looked interesting and well loved. My parents ran one of the local holiday flats and I would love the elderly visitors that came through in the summer.
Their favourite place to go was always for fish and chips as the town was famous for it. On every street corner there would be a fish and chip shop and I would estimate that throughout the town there was about 50 of them.
Throughout my teenage years I must have worked in about 4 of the fish and chip shops. I would watch as they battered the fish and served it with chips and mushy peas.
I must say, it made me absolutely hate fish and chips. All that grease looked horrible. I would much rather have my fish as seafood served with rice in a Paella. Which was probably a good thing as otherwise I would have eaten it all and got seriously FAT!
Dominic on the other hand, believes that fish should only ever be battered and as a true Yorkshireman adores his beer battered fish and chips.
But even though I never really cared for it much from a fish and chip shop I do truly love making my own beer battered fish and chips in the Airfryer. This is because there is a lot less fat involved and you can really taste the flavours without it feeling like grease on a plate.
This is also a Slimming World Fakeaway type too. So this means it is lower in calories and much lower in fat. And OMG if you used to go to the fish and chip shop with your grandparents for supper on a Friday night then you will love this.
The real deal beer battered fish and chips!
How To Make Beer Batter

The idea behind a good beer batter is that it is nice and thick so that it sticks to your fish or chicken. If it is thin it will just fall off. The beer batter is best if you make the beer batter an hour before you plan to use it.
To make the beer batter mix together 150ml of beer with 100g of plain flour and seasonings of your choice.
We seasoned our beer batter with a teaspoon each of salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, turmeric and garlic puree.
If you want to change the amount of beer batter than simply follow the rule of 2/5 flour to 3/5 beer.


Slimming World Beer Battered Fish & Chips Recipe


Dominic’s amazing beer battered fish and chips recipe is made in the Airfryer. A delicious beer batter that you can use for any battered food such as prawns, chicken or fish. Low Syn too for that perfect Slimming World Fakeaway.


* Airfryer
* Airfryer Baking Pan
* 500 g Cod Fillet
* 2 Large Potatoes
* 100 g Plain Flour
* 150 ml Beer
* 1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Welcome to my Slimming World Crinkle Cut Airfryer Chips recipe. A quick easy crinkle cut chips recipe that is perfect for if you want easy Slimming World Chips without the high Syns.
But these crinkle cut Airfryer Chips was never planned for the blog today. I plan my recipes in advance and right now I have plans for late September and October. This is because I am the only one writing them and because I have other work to do in order to run the blog, I keep my content in advance then it takes the pressure off me.
So today (as I write this) it is the 29th of July. I am sweating buckets because summer in the Algarve is just so sticky and sweaty. I cook in the Airfryer and the Slow Cooker the most because the oven heats up the house so much that you just feel like you’re living in a sauna.

Spoiler Alert – Tomorrow on the blog we had a recipe planned for Slimming World Fish & Chips. Then today the plan was to review a local Fish & Chips restaurant in our area so that we can talk about the difference in calories/Syns and what the real thing tastes like compared to an airfryer version.
Well what happened is that we went out for a fish & chips supper last night and it was the meal out of our nightmares. I could of course write a negative review but as a food blogger I can’t do with the hassle, so if something is rubbish I will just never feature it on the blog.
For example with the Airfyer we have the Philips XL which we truly love. But I have also had the chance to try 2 other brands Airfryers and absolutely hated them. My cousin (who has specialised in reviews for years and is an expert with them) tried one of the other brands too and absolutely hated it.
What Went Wrong?
I am a huge fan of eating out in the Algarve. There are some amazing places to eat out and we have lots of favourites. We love places that are great for families and love to go out in a gang together.
Well on the evening in question:

* Our reserved table was in the middle of about 10 tables of heavy smokers
* Out of 3 of us eating they only provided cutlery for 2
* No proper menus
* Over priced meal
* Unfriendly staff

The smoking was so bad that when I got home I needed a shower (it was 10.30 at night and I was shattered) and the thought in the eating area that so much smoking was going on was ridiculous. Add to this the fact that our 2 under 3s were exposed to so much smoke. It was an outside eating area but the other family had been placed out of the way and out of the way of the smokers – so why wasn’t we as ours was a reserved table?
Trying to eat with no knife and fork in a restaurant is horrible and so ridiculous.
They also did not have menus and Dominic ordered me the wrong meal by mistake and even though we mentioned this less than 3 minutes later, they wouldn’t let us change it.
We also found it be very overpriced. Typically if we go out for dinner with the under 3s and ourselves we will pay approximately 20€. With our favourite place costing us about 16€. So it was a super shock to find out that this place was 32€. There was also no breakdown of costs so we really didn’t know how much everything was.

We also found the staff to be unfriendly, it had hired a terrible band for the music and it looked scruffy and run down.
We ended up returning home earlier than we would normally do and feeling ripped off and unhappy about the experience.
It was an English place and we always find that whenever we eat out at English places In Portugal that the experience is always awful. It is like they just wake up one day and think “lets open a restaurant abroad” and don’t have the natural ability.
Or that they are overpriced. Even on holiday in Spain we discovered a Spanish tapas bar ...]]>

If you love apple pies and milkshakes then this apple pie smoothie will be your dream dessert this autumn. When I think of apples I am always thinking of autumn. When the leaves are falling from the trees, Welcome to my quick blend apple pie smoothie. If you love apple pies and milkshakes then this apple pie smoothie will be your dream dessert this autumn.
When I think of apples I am always thinking of autumn. When the leaves are falling from the trees, the weather is not that hot that I feel like I am going to pass out and apples are in season. They are shiny and red, shiny and green or a mixture of the two. They are lovely and sweet and perfect for eating.
Don’t get me wrong I eat apples all year around. I love them in the summer when they are a little bitter and when they’re perfect for apple chips.
My daughter’s favourite way to have apples is diced in their skin with a little cinnamon sprinkled on top. When she has her afternoon nap we will wake her up after about 90 minutes with her apple and cinnamon along with some warm milk. She loves it and will sit in silence eating away while she comes around from her drowsy state.
Plus if you are in doubt here are the top reasons to eat more apples in your diet:

So if in doubt about eating apples this autumn then there are plenty of reasons to do so.
But have apples in autumn (or fall if you’re American) and OMG it is a food heaven moment. They are big and tasty and so frugal to buy too.

Here are 5 more of my favourite ever apple recipes:

* Mini Apple Pie
* Airfryer Apple Chips
* Apple Butter Pulled Pork
* Apple & Cinnamon Pancakes
* Apple & Butternut Squash Soup

In this apple pie smoothie recipe I will be taking my favourite mini apple pies that I make in the Airfryer. Then I will be blending some of the apple pie with my favourite other smoothie/milkshake flavours.
One of my true addictions at the moment is smoothies made with cheesecake batter and I thought I better have something a little different hence why this recipe is happening instead.
I have added extra sugar (well I am addicted after all) along with a creamy thick milkshake with loads of apples, cinnamon and whipped cream.
I will level with you and say that I am not a huge apple pie fan. It was something that I had too much growing up (my dad adores it) so as an adult and because Dominic & Kyle don’t like it, means that I rarely eat it. Instead I go nuts for apple crumble instead.
It was one of the first things that I learnt to cook at school and OMG that lovely crumble over the warm apples is amazing. Plus as the boys hate it then it means more for me. But my daughter who will be 3 in November, loves so many different foods that the boys hate and I love, so this is another thing to tick to the box with that she gets excited about.
I didn’t want to make a huge apple pie, just in case she didn’t like it so I bought her a pack of Mr Kiplings Apple Pies instead and she ran out of the room with a huge box of them, so its safe to say she is a HUGE fan!
So I thought I would be in luck when I made the apple pie smoothie for her. I gave this to her to try and she wouldn’t stop eating it. I think I have a new apple pie smoothie addict in the family too!

A delicious quick blend smoothie that is perfect for your little ones this summer and beyond. It only takes a couple of minutes to make and perfect for when you are weaning your little ones. Welcome to my Avocado Mango Smoothie for babies. A delicious quick blend smoothie that is perfect for your little ones this summer and beyond. It only takes a couple of minutes to make and perfect for when you are weaning your little ones.
I read an interesting debate on a mother and baby Facebook group recently. The mum was saying what a rubbish mum she felt like because her kid was nearly 3 years old and she felt like she had not introduced enough food to her baby. That she felt like it was her fault that her baby just wanted to breast feed or eat soup and that she wanted advice moving him onto solids.
At first I thought the replies would be judgemental but they were not. You see she had struck a nerve, so many other mums felt the same way, but were too embarrassed to come forward about it.
When you become a new mum there is a lot of talk that breast is best (YES before you ask all of my kids were breastfed and Jorge STILL is) and that our school kids should all have fruit and vegetables in their diet.
But nobody talks about that difficult age after breastfeeding when you are slowly introducing food to your baby.
That time when you spend ages preparing food for your baby, for them to spit it out, sick it up or generally just pull a face at you, as if to say that they don’t want to touch that!
This is an old picture of Sofia in 2015 as we introduced her to carrots:

You would think that given the fact that we are doing it for the second time in 2 years should make it easier, well it doesn’t! Babies are hard work when it comes to introducing food and unfortunately it’s a case of sucking it up and looking forward to the time when you have found them a handful of food that they like.
Sofia for example would eat loads of soup with no problems at all. This meant that when we were eating out, we would simply order her a soup from the menu with some bread. Then it saved the hassle of bringing a meal out for her and having to keep it at the correct temperature.
Now that we are going through the process with Jorge, it seems easier as we have just done it, but its still trial and error.
My main focus though is to introduce to him foods that are super healthy for his growing active body and secondly are easy for him to eat or drink.
He is on majority breast milk and will turn 1 year old at the end of the month. So from month 9 I introduced him to this delicious Avocado Mango Smoothie.

I could add it to his baby bottle, use it as a thickener for his blended baby food and best of all as ice lollies.
Living in Portugal means that it is very hot in the summer months and you just want something cold and refreshing and the same goes for babies. Jorge would be sweating just like us and would wish away the 40 degree heat, just like us. And while we could tuck into a big tub of Ben & Jerry’s it was nice to be able to offer Jorge something of his own.
So I made a big batch of this Avocado Mango Smoothie with my blender and gave him some of it to have as a drink, left some to drink in the fridge for later and froze the rest of it as avocado mango smoothie ice lollies.
Yes really. We did smoothie ice lollies with the avocado mango smoothie too. And personally I think they are nicest as lollies!

Welcome to my Slimming World Chicken Doner Kebab Fakeaway night in. A delicious homemade chicken doner kebab meal with lots of sides and so easy and quick to make too. Discover just how simple it is to make chicken doner kebab at home with all the trimmings.
Nowadays we have this huge obesity epidemic. There are more fat people than skinny people and it is killing us. All the fat in our diet, all the processed foods and don’t get me started with the lack of vegetables that way too many families have these days.
One of the biggest blames is the fast food establishments. McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut, KFC and of course the British kebab and pizza takeaways.
Yet they were around 30 years ago and there was not as many fat people then. Yet its all their fault in the eyes of the rest of the world.
Fast food was available long before then and always will be. But there is one common difference. Back then fast food was a treat. Sometimes once a week or sometimes once a month. I grew up with the grandparents that would treat themselves to Fish & Chips on a Friday night. And that would be it for greasy unhealthy food. Yet now the takeaways are busier than ever with people reaching out for the phone and to ring up a takeaway at least 4 times a week.
Yes 4 times a week…..
And now the takeaways will do buy one get one free so that takeaway of a doner kebab and fries, is suddenly a doner kebab fries and a pizza and some onion rings and a full sugar can of drink. The calories have suddenly tripled in size and are happening 4 times as often.
That 750 calorie treat has suddenly turned into a 3000 calorie treat and 3000 calories 4 times a week. All of a sudden fast food is 12,000 calories a week and vegetables are only ever heard of in the garnish of a burger.
So no wonder we have such a problem.
I remember having a doner kebab takeaway when I was in my teens. I would sit on my tummy next to my mum and we would have a doner kebab each while watching a movie. It was the 90s and the chances are it would either be an Eddie Murphy or a Goldie Hawn film. With one portion of fries between us. That was it. There was not this greed like there is today and it would happen maybe once every 2-3 months. Not several times a week. There was no guilt in having it and you were not fat.
Apart from this you might eat out in a restaurant once a week and there would rarely be any other fast food. We still had several fast food places and there was of course temptation everywhere, there just wasn’t the greed like there is today.
But if you are on a diet like Slimming World and you are in need of losing weight, then I have a real treat for you in my Slimming World Chicken Doner Kebab Fakeaway. No guilt at all and so easy to make at home. I even have the sides covered. It is also very easy to make and you could do it like we do, where one of you is in charge of the bread and then the other the chicken, then share out the jobs of the sides.
Plus don’t forget you can save yourself a small fortune by making it yourself compared to the cost of buying a takeaway. We used just pantry items plus a couple of chicken breasts. We made the chicken doner meat in the
Airfryer and then used a large wok for cooking the pita breads in.
So lets start with the homemade chicken doner kebabs and then we can add on the sides.


Slimming World Chicken Doner Kebab Fakeaway

Homemade Pita Bread:

* 300 g Plain Flour

Home baked chocolate chip blondies with 2 different types of chocolate chips and a taste that is so good, you wouldn’t be able to stop with just the one chocolate chip blondie. Welcome to my Easy Traybake Chocolate Chip Blondies. Home baked chocolate chip blondies with 2 different types of chocolate chips and a taste that is so good, you wouldn’t be able to stop with just the one chocolate chip blondie.
These chocolate chip blondies are sponsored by Checkered Chef and their large baking tray and cooling tray two in one set.
Where do I start when I am talking about chocolate traybakes? They are just part of the diet, something that you grow up on and something that you adore from a small age.
It wasn’t until I was about 15 that I ever heard the word “brownies” and it wasn’t until last year that I had heard of blondies. You see I grew up in England and their idea of brownies (or their version) would always be either chocolate cake or chocolate shortbread made via a big fat traybake.

At school growing up you would have a really big slice of chocolate shortbread and it would be served with flavoured custard. My favourite was always the one with strawberry custard. It was the best. I sat next to a really skinny girl that hated pudding so I would always finish hers. Maybe why I was chubby and she wasn’t? But it was so good, it was worth the extra bit of puppy fat.
But I also loved the chocolate sponge cake version that they served up with warm chocolate custard. It would have a delicious sprinkling of icing sugar on top and have loads of chocolate. Plus the big difference between a British traybake and an American one would have to be the butter. Us Brits are butter obsessed and believe that everything tastes better if you have extra butter. So butter would come first.
Actually, better just say that I liked all desserts from school that were nut free. And that I was never bothered for the main course, but wanted to get my spoon into the dessert.
It would also be very simple to make the school puddings at home. Especially the chocolate shortbread. It had butter, plain flour, caster sugar and a cocoa and that would be it. It was also one of those things that I learnt first to cook for myself when I left home.
Here in 2017 though, I still have found memories of those school dinners. But now I am venturing into cooking blondies instead. Blondies are just like Brownies the only difference is that they are made with brown sugar being the star, rather than chocolate being the star.
Instead of cocoa you will add one main extra to the recipe as your classic add on. This could be chocolate smarties, chocolate chips, lemon or caramel. In our version though we have been greedy. We have gone with white chocolate chunks and milk chocolate chips. It gives it the total wow factor and makes you a massive batch of chocolate chip brownies.

We also found that because it’s a traybake there was very little washing up and it was very fast and easy to make. This recipe is certainly going to be a keeper and we will be going back to it time and time again.

Delicious summer fish tacos with the help of our Airfryer. Loaded with fresh mango and fresh cod it’s a recipe keeper for your family. I love white fish. I am the granddaughter of a fisherman. Welcome to my Airfryer Baja Fish Taco Recipe. Delicious summer fish tacos with the help of our Airfryer. Loaded with fresh mango and fresh cod it’s a recipe keeper for your family.
I love white fish. I am the granddaughter of a fisherman. I used to love going out on the boat with him and the smell of the fresh fish he was catching. Even now when I am at the harbour and smell fresh fish I think of him.
Unless you are catching a high end piece of fish such as the fish caught on Deadliest Catch then the chances are is that the money will never pay well. It is a poor job with often a case of going weeks without a living wage and many fishermen work below the poverty line.
But the one perk is that you have an endless supply of fish to take home with you for supper. Delicious fish that you can make a huge amount of different dishes with. My grandad also grew his own fruit and vegetables in his allotment so this meant that the money spent on food was very, very little.
BUT OMG he made the best ever fishcakes, fish stew and I absolutely loved the way he cooked batter with a piece of fish.
Though if he had a few too many beers, then the food would be very salty as he would have added the salt more than once, because he would have forgotten in his drunken haze.
He also loved a variety of food in his diet and he would absolutely love these:

I could just imagine if he was a fisherman today, that we would be sat on his bench outside in the summer sunshine, tucking into them and commenting on how great Mexican food can be and why cod is just the best!
Sadly, he died when I was 11 years old at Christmas 1993, so this moment is not going to happen. BUT he will always be the grandad that made cod exciting.
My husband Dominic on the other hand, will only eat cod if it is battered, as he says like a typical Englishman that it’s the only way we should eat cod. Here in Portugal the way we eat cod is salted in a bake. A bit like how the Brits love their Oceans Pie but with some cheese in it. Bacalhau as they call it is one of my favourite Portuguese foods and my own personal way for enjoying cod.
But I talked him in to making a big batch of this and he was in love.
Though with a teenage boy at home too, I will be lucky if I get just one of them to myself:
 
To make these delicious Baja Fish Tacos we made our homemade tortilla wraps first, tossed our cod in a marinade, cooked them in the Airfryer, made our mango salsa and served it all up.
You’re probably expecting something over complicated but it really is not. It is simple, hearty and so easy for a delicious family supper. We original recipe tested this on a Thursday night when we just wanted something simple.
You can even be frugal load it up with extra vegetables and then you will need less cod in the tacos and then one piece of fish would stretch enough to feed six of you!
All 3 kids joined us in the kitchen and we love it like that as it’s so much fun.
Jorge at 9 months spent the time running around the kitchen in his baby walker and you need shoes on, so that he doesn’t run you over! Sofia spent the time trying to steal all the food and flooding the kitchen with her toddler washing up skills. But thankfully having Kyle around and him being a teen around means that you have someone that is exceptionally good at preparing the food and makes it feel like there are 3 adults present.
And that is how our kitchen rolls during recipe testing evenings!
I may add that they tasted delicious and it’s amazing what a great job the Airfryer does of making Baja Fish Tacos. It is like genius and is a must have if you want a really nice fish taco.

Welcome to my Airfryer Cheese & Onion Nuggets recipe. A delicious dose of nuggets for when we fancy a meat free cheesy moment. An addiction in the Milner household and perfect for a quick snack for your kids when they come home from school.
This recipe is sponsored by Kyle’s Mayonnaise and it was his small batch mayonnaise that gave me the inspiration for putting together this awesome recipe for the Airfryer.
I don’t know which side of the fence you are on, but when it comes down to a choice between tomato ketchup and mayonnaise I am the mayo girl. I have never really got the addiction to ketchup and just can’t say no to mayonnaise. I even use it as a replacement to butter for my bread.
When I first tried this mayonnaise it wasn’t like any mayonnaise that I had ever tried. I have always had the cheap supermarket brands and not really thought much about the mayonnaise and always assumed that it was supposed to be really thick.
But last summer I did make my own and Kyle’s Mayonnaise is just like that and it got me thinking….classic shop bought mayonnaise is not great for cooking with, but a real mayonnaise like this one is just the right consistency for home cooking.

You could mix it with your cheese for that delicious sloppy filling inside a nugget or inside a burger (think a Juicy Lucy) or in cheese toasties.
Just think anything with a soft cheese filling and this is just perfect. And then of course it is the law to have some saved to one side for dipping your nuggets into.
Plus it tastes so amazing you will wonder why you ever wanted to eat chicken nuggets for all these years.
This gives you the filling of your dreams. coconut oil, Kyle’s Mayonnaise, cheese, spring onion or chilli. Then cover this up with homemade shortcrust pastry and cook them in the Airfryer.
I’m a cheese and mayo addict so I am in foodgasm heaven recipe testing this so look away now if you are on Paleo!


Airfryer Cheese & Onion Nuggets


Delicious cheese and onion nuggets filled with a creamy cheese and mayonnaise centre. Perfect for sharing and your kids will love them!


* Airfryer
* ¼ Shortcrust Pastry
* 200 g Edam Cheese
* 2 Spring Onions
* 2 Tbsp Kyle’s Mayonnaise
* 1 Small Egg (beaten)
* 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
* 1 Tbsp Thyme
* Salt & Pepper



* Clean and thinly dice the spring onion. Grate the cheese.
* Add to a medium mixing bowl the onion, cheese, mayonnaise, coconut oil , salt, pepper and the dried thyme. Mix well and make into 8 small balls and fridge for an hour.
* Roll out your shortcrust pastry and make into 8 nugget shapes. Make sure they are big enough for the 8 cheese fillings without being too big or small.
* Place the cheesy mixture into the centre of each of the pastry shape. Then seal it up so that there are no gaps.
* Using a pastry brush, brush egg over the pastry so that it will have an eggy glow when cooked.
* Cook in the Airfryer for 12 minutes at 180c/356f.
* Serve warm and while the cheese is still melting.


Edam is fantastic for this recipe as it is not too melty so is perfect for cooking with.
The benefit of fridging the cheese mixture is that the coconut oil goes hard when cold and it stiffens up the mixture enough so that it wont explode later when you cook it.
For a plan B you can also make a chilli version by thinly slicing ½ a small green chilli pepper instead of spring onion. Very nice but too hot for me and my kids.

These are made especially for my under 3s and are perfect for if you want something healthy this summer. These Smoothie Ice Lollies are completely Paleo friendly too and full to bursting with four different fresh fruits.
On the 26th of September 2016 I achieved something that I once thought was impossible. That was to complete my family. After lots and lots of heartache my third and final child entered the world.
There was never loads of pregnancy pictures on Facebook or on Instagram. Not because I wasn’t excited because I was over the moon, but because of fear that something was going to go wrong and how would I cope with everyone’s sympathy. So old school friends were rather shocked when Dominic revealed my pregnancy at 34 weeks when hardly anyone even knew I was expecting.
But I was and the amazing Jorge entered our world in September last year:

He is now a beautiful soon to be 11 month old. He is mischievous just like his big brother, full of character like this sister and is at that wonderful part of his life when everything is an adventure as he learns everything for the first time.
One thing on his mind is always the food.
That crazy transition that as new parents you always have. They have started off with breast milk which is easy. You just stick them on the breast every 4 hours and then bingo they are fed.
But then four months hits and then six months and then seven months and then of course nine months.
All key times when you can introduce more and more regular food into their lives. You are still incredibly cautious to make sure it is a food that a young child can have and is not going to damage their development or make them sick. Days out and meals out have to be pre-planned. And something simple like dessert and summer food can be very much like hard work.
But some foods that I have always found can be perfect for them after 9 months is the following:

* Honey
* Coconut Milk
* Fresh Fruit


You just can’t go wrong and combined into smoothie ice lollies and you have something amazing for the little ones. Something that you know will give them something that is their dessert and then they don’t look at you so wantingly as you eat a piece of summer cheesecake without them.
So this is for Jorge. His first ever smoothie ice lollies and a batch that I am sure he will be sharing with his soon to be 3 year old sister. Though I think she believes her big sister role is to lick up any spillages.
Ice Lolly Vs Popsicle

An ice lolly, a popsicle or an ice pole is the exact same thing. The Europeans call it an Ice Lolly, the Americans a Popsicle and the Australians call it an Ice Pole.
The popsicle is a brand of American Ice Pops and if you asked for an actual Ice Pop many Americans would have no idea what you’re talking about.
No matter what you call them they are one of the same. Usually associated with lots of frozen fruit, along with liquid and sugar for a delicious summer treat.
Or if you are really lucky a fruit split, that is instead filled in the centre with ice cream.


Paleo Smoothie Ice Lollies Recipe


With four different layers of fresh fruit, honey for sweetness and coconut milk for creaminess this is heaven for both you and your kids this summer.


* 50 g Fresh Blueberries
* 50 g Fresh Mango
* 50 g Fresh Strawberries
* 50 g Fresh Kiwi
* 1 Large Banana
* 400 g Can Coconut Milk
* 2 Tbsp Honey



* Clean the fruit. Peel and dice the mango and kiwis.
* In a blender place your honey, coconut milk and banana. Blend until smooth. Add 6 ice cubes and blend again.
* Keep ¼ of the mixture in the blender and put the rest to one side in a mixing bowl.

A healthier version of the classic frugal sandwich with premiums sausages, homemade cheesy chilli and a sprinkling of salad. They’re served in our homemade hotdog rolls and are best for some summer party fun.
When I was growing up there was only one way that you ever enjoyed hotdogs….and that was out of a can with some baked beans and tomato sauce. They tasted good at the time and when you’re a kid, you really don’t know any better.
In fact they are like a heart attack waiting to happen. They have even been named by scientists and nutritionists as being worse for your health than smoking. Yet we wouldn’t allow our kids to smoke, yet many, many families feed their kids these hotdogs for dinner ever day.
Or if you don’t get them with the beans and tomato sauce, then the chances are, you have had them bought from the can in brine and then had them served into hot dog buns. You might even have had them with some mustard or some ketchup on top. Or the closest they have been to healthy would have been the onions that you had thrown on top.
Even worse – since researching for this Chilli Cheese Dog, I have even heard that the chilli comes out of a can too. I mean “hello” chilli is just so easy to make yourself and so economical too.
I am pleased to say that I have not touched cheap hotdogs for years. I am trying to think of the last time but can’t. But it must be at least 5 years ago.
Plus think of the costs for a big bowl of chilli mince vs the cost of one can and just think how many you can feed and how much you would have leftover for later.
But let’s face it, there is nothing that shouts out healthy. Everything says that you should avoid them like they are the plague and get them as far away from your kids as possible.
But we all love a chilli cheese dog, so how do we make the best ever Airfryer Chilli Cheese Dog and keep it fairly healthy for them at the same time?
Well what I do is use the best ever German sausages, they are Whole 30 friendly so you know that they are super healthy, along with homemade bread, homemade chilli and of course soft cheese. It gives you the complete wow factor and things are loaded up so high into your sandwich, that you will need to eat a bit with a fork because you can tackle it.
And OMG if you offered this to your kids when they come home from school, I doubt there will be a kid that would say that they would rather have a can option.
Plus if you want to win in the “team parents”, then the sauce made with the chilli cheese comes with loads of fresh and tinned tomatoes and I bet they wont even notice that it includes vegetables.
What Is A Chilli Dog?

A chilli dog is the generic name for a hotdog served in a hotdog bun and topped with delicious chilli mince, such as chilli con carne or bolognese with chilli seasoning. Often it also includes mustard, fried onions and melted cheese.
In many parts of the world the name varies but the main ingredients and the idea behind it often stay the same.
For example in the United States Of America they call it a Chili Dog, spelling it slightly different to the rest of the world with one less 🙂
There are also a few different varieties via different states of America including:

* New Jersey = Texas Wiener
* Michigan = Coney Island Hotdog
* Rhode Island = Hot Wiener
* New York = Michigan Hotdog
* North Carolina = Carolina Style
* Washington DC = Half Smoke

Hotdogs also originate from Germany and are often referred to as Wiener.

A delicious alternative if you are out of butter and want some sugar cookies for supper. Made with a good balance of coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil it is a recipe keeper. Welcome to my Airfryer Butterless Strawberry Sugar Cookies recipe. A delicious alternative if you are out of butter and want some sugar cookies for supper. Made with a good balance of coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil it is a recipe keeper.
These came about because I had a terrible chocolate craving. I just wanted some cookies or some cake or some doughnuts. In fact I really didn’t care what I had, just as long as I had something……
Then I looked in the cupboard and I had zero butter, zero chocolate chips and absolutely zero soft cheese. You see normally if I have chocolate cravings I would have some homemade cookies or some homemade cheesecake.
I also live out in the country. We live in a beautiful little village., There is no café, a small church and several country cottages and villas. It is great for long walks and we have the most amazing views. I love nothing more than taking the kids for an evening stroll. But it does mean that you are away from shops, restaurants and bars. So we always make sure we have a chest freezer and many cupboards full of food just in case we are running low.
We bought the house because of its location. It is 20 minutes in one direction for the beach, the same another way for the waterpark, 10 minutes to our favourite café, 10 minutes to the local supermarket and 10 minutes to our favourite park.
This means that it is 10 minutes drive to get some chocolate, so if you crave some it just doesn’t seem worth the effort to go and do something about it.
In my cupboards I had a look to see what I had and all I had was:

* Cocoa powder
* Gluten free oats
* Olive oil
* Coconut oil
* Caster Sugar
* Honey
* Loads of flour

And before I knew it, I had played around with the ingredients and made myself some homemade sugar cookies. The cookie batter itself was really greasy and not as delicious as homemade cookie dough but it was okay.
I crossed my fingers as they were cooking in the Airfryer and hoped for the best….I bit into them and I was pleasantly surprised by how nice they turned out. They were still a little too oily but they were perfect for the sugar cravings.
So I made another batch a week later. Less oil this time and made a strawberry version instead of a chocolate version. They were the most amazing butterless sugar cookies that I had ever tried. And OMG they were truly amazing and I just can’t believe that these were just from experimenting and from leftovers we had in the house.
They certainly make a totally different use out of strawberries and remind me of the local Portuguese cookies that we often have at cafes and restaurants.
Airfryer Butterless Strawberry Sugar Cookies Recipe

* Place the sugars and the oils into a mixing bowl and mix until smooth and creamy with a hand mixer.
* Add the honey, the vanilla essence, eggs and give another whizz with the hand mixer so that the eggs are well beaten into the cookie batter.
* Using a fork mix in (a bit at a time) the flour and the oats. Until the cookie batter is well combined.
* Add the strawberries and mix them into the batter with your hands.

Welcome to how to make a homemade custard cream cake recipe. Discover how to make your very own homemade giant custard cream cake. One that will taste like the best ever cake you have made, but with the flavours of a traditional British Custard Cream.
This custard cream cake recipe couldn’t happen without MoldyFun and their Giant Custard Cream Mould and we are so pleased that they are sponsoring this recipe.
Many of you know, that before we moved to Portugal in 2008, that we lived in England. I was born in London, raised in Yorkshire & had the first half of my 20’s in Manchester. If there was one thing that stays close to my heart then it has to be British baking.
My grandma taught me how to make the most amazing buns, my aunt taught me how to make shortcrust pastry and my love for baking started at a very young age.
I loved the biscuits the most. The Jammie Dodgers is my absolute favourites and I also love custard creams, party rings and chocolate digestives.
One of our treats when we were first married was the broken biscuit boxes from Aldis. It was a huge cardboard box and it would be filled full of all the top British biscuits that was not fit for general sale. They would be broken or missing a key element and were basically the factory rejects.
Plus because they were not perfect you got a huge box of them for a very low price.
Sadly we ate them way too fast and could go through a box in four days and it clearly didn’t help my abs, that were slowly disappearing with each of the biscuits that I was consuming.
But for the £3 that we paid for them, it cost about 90% less than what you would have paid for the biscuits if they had been complete. So it was one of those amazing money saving family things. We still get them every now and again from Iceland Portugal and they cost about 4,00€ so the price hasn’t changed that much over the years.
But it is thinking about those broken biscuits that has given me a totally different idea of how today’s recipe is going to roll. You see we live in a food blogging world where we want perfection. We want the perfect looking salad, the perfect biscuit and of course the perfect looking burger. We read too many magazines when the glossy pictures look back at us and we believe that is what life is like.
But in reality it is not. We have the dirty flour face on our kids, we don’t use a blow torch to make our food look good and we certainly don’t take 200 pictures of one meal, to then choose the best one for our blog.
So I gave my kids the ingredients list to make my custard cream cake and set them to work. They took the pictures, even though they never even used cameras and did the first attempt of the custard cream cake recipe, until I did the finished piece.
It was a bit of fun and we all had a great time giggling away, licking lots of cake bowls and having a great time and this is what true baking is all about.
Sofia Making The Custard Cream Cake Mix

At 2.5 years old there is nothing more fun than mixing all the ingredients together and then when nobody is looking, helping yourself. I swear she ate more mix than she made.
Sofia Making the Mould Non-Stick

I pointed out to Sofia that for the mould to work that it needed to be well oiled and needs to come away easily and for the custard cream print to show. She was a girl on a mission. She started with loads of butter down the bottom and sides, with plenty more butter in her hair and followed this with rubbing and shaking lots of flour in. The picture above was the end result.
Sofia’s Just Cooked Custard Cream Cake

Next was the custard cream cake out of the oven. Only problem with leaving under 16’s in charge is that they fail to check what time it went in the oven. This means that it cooked for about 10 more minutes that it should have done.]]>

Dive into a night of Greek food with our family focused Slimming World friendly Greek takeaway menu. Slimming World Hummus, Slimming World Greek Dip, Slimming World Falafel, Slimming World Salsa and finished off with some Slimming World Pita breads.
I have to say that I just LOVE Greek food. I am lucky enough to have visited several of the Greek Isles when I was growing up and loving the local culture and the local food.
My favourite island was always Crete as the food was always spectacular and I would love to visit again one day. The only problem though is that its so difficult to visit the Greek Isles from Portugal especially when you have 2 kids under 3. You have to get a connecting flight as there are no direct flights for us, plus the flights are always late at night.
Yet we can just drive for an hour in the car and we are in Spain or we can fly out to Madeira in an hour. So this means that Greece and the Greek Isles are often on the back burner.
But wow the food.
It is so family focused and everyone just thinks about family and eating together.
I love this quote from My Big Fat Greek Wedding:

“We are always together eating…eating….eating…”
As it is so true. Portugal which is also on the Mediterranean has always had a similar opinion on food. Plus I can imagine if any of my kids marry into a Portuguese family that it will be like the movie.
I remember disappearing on holiday in Crete when I was little and my parents going frantic. They looked everywhere for me and we were eating out at a restaurant at the time. In the end they found me in the back room of the restaurant with the kids and their family eating Greek food.
But when you think of Greek food it is often bumped up with oils and butters and carbs and is not exactly Slimming World or low calorie friendly.
So we decided to instead make a healthier version for a Slimming World Greek Fakeaway. With loads of food (after all the Greeks eat a lot and love their food) and to keep the Syns in check at the same time. So jump in and order in the ingredients as this is a Greek fakeaway that you will want time and time again.

Delicious king prawns breaded and then crisped up in the Airfryer. Served with chunky chips and drizzled with lemon. It’s the perfect family mid week meal. OMG scampi and chips you say? Welcome to my Airfryer Scampi & Chips recipe. Delicious king prawns breaded and then crisped up in the Airfryer. Served with chunky chips and drizzled with lemon. It’s the perfect family mid week meal.
OMG scampi and chips you say?
Talk about taking me back to my old British pub meals. The meals were never that great and it was more about being cheap and cheerful. But I still loved it and it was always about the amazing atmosphere that you got with being down the pub.
I can also credit the fact that I met my husband down the pub, my mum and dad met down the pub and so did my grandparents. So its certainly a place to go for true love!
I always remember though that there was a huge amount of traditional meals. There would always be scampi and chips, fish and chips, steak and ale pie, lasagne or even liver and onions on the menu. There would also be a large pudding menu too with everything coming with warm custard. You would then get a meal for a fiver and be proud of what you got for your money.
Quite often one of us would be having scampi and chips. Those little prawns deep fried and served with fresh lemon and chips was always a favourite for many people.
But in reality I have not been in a British pub for more than a decade. The last time I was in a pub was back when we lived in England.
It had the pub on one side and then a massive kids soft play centre on the other. Dominic would be watching the football while I was next door with Kyle having fun kids time. He was about 5 or 6 at the time when we last went there. Then we would meet up together and have a delicious pub meal afterwards.
It was bliss.
And I wish they had more like that in Portugal. We only have a couple of soft play centres. One has poor hygiene and the other is way too far away. But of course I can dream.
But even though I don’t have the soft play centres I can make the best ever Scampi & Chips at home in the Airfryer.
It of course has to be with real prawns and not that rubbish you buy from the freezers in the local supermarket. You have to know what you’re eating and this version is much healthier. And it tastes so crispy being cooked in the Airfryer.
And the chunky chips of course finish off the meal don’t they?
Though in the British pubs they would always be served with garden peas. Well I am not much of a fan so that side of things is going to be left out. But the delicious pieces of scampi will be there would all their glory.
What Is In Scampi?

With £50 million worth of scampi being sold every year in Britain its no surprise that so many people search every day on the internet to find out what is in it.
It should be either langoustine, langoustine tails or Irish king prawns which are all the smaller cousin of the lobster.
But in reality you’re more likely to find pangasius catfish which is mass produced in Vietnam and in Thailand. There is often as little as 7% of actual langoustines in scampi that is served in British pubs. The rest if made up of this Asian catfish and mass amounts of water. It is then breaded so that you don’t know any different.
Many scampi products served in pubs or purchased from supermarkets have more water than actual fish.
Many food experts name it as the worst type of processed foods you could ever eat. Especially because of all the additives included in it. The best thing to do (like us) is to make your own!

A genius quick blend recipe in any blender and perfect for getting you through these hot summer months. If you like a refreshing summer drink then you’ll love learning how to make strawberry lemonade at home.
One of my biggest addictions as a child was the fizzy drinks. I loved lemonade, orangeade, cherryade, limeade and I could go on but you will probably get sick of reading the word ade.
I also doubt before the age of 16 that I had drank any water without complaining at the thought of drinking water.
I even remember being on a school trip when I was 10 and being disgusted by the fact that they were serving us all water with our meals.
I mean I don’t drink water and I hate water.
Well that was me back then anyway as a grumpy 10 year old!
Since then I have fallen in love with water and easily drink 3 litres of it a day, if not more.
I remember we used to always have a lot of orange squash in the house. It was the go to drink. It had no added sugar so it was considered to be okay, even though it was not great for you. But at the time nobody really told you any different.
But there was a plan B. Whenever we ate out I would have a can of Diet Coke and it was so refreshing and nice. Or if I went to the corner shop for some sweets with money from my Grandma I would always get a fizzy drink at the same time.
But there was one drink that always got my attention above all others and that was lemonade. I just loved my lemonade and could guzzle it if given the chance. The one that was in fashion during the 90’s was the pink lemonade and it just tasted so good and made me feel like I had something amazing while my parents drank their wine over dinner.
When we would head off on our yearly holiday I would stock up on the pink lemonade to take with me. But nowadays it costs a small fortune, has so many chemicals in it that I would never let my kids near it.
Well my option for them was to teach them how to make strawberry lemonade instead. It is full of additives, is made quickly in our blender and is so refreshing during these hot summer months.
It is like give it to me now! Or else!!!!
So get in the kitchen with your kids and make a delicious homemade strawberry lemonade in the blender and fill up your fridge with it. Your kids will think that you are amazing and might actually forget that a) it is good for them and b) that water is not that bad after all.
Oh and on a final note – did I mention it was less than 5 ingredients?

How To Make Strawberry Lemonade


How To Make Strawberry Lemonade


A refreshing summer drink loaded with lots of fresh in season strawberries. Store it in the fridge to keep you nice and cool this summer.


* Blender
* 200 g Strawberries
* 1 Tbsp Caster Sugar
* ½ Medium Lemon (juice only)



* Remove the cores from the strawberries and add them to your blender. Add in the sugar along with 300ml of cold water.
* Blend until coarse.
* Add the lemon juice, give it another whizz and then serve with ice cubes.


I find that if the strawberries are not very sweet that you need to add a tablespoon of honey to it too.
If you want a more citrus flavour then double the lemon and add a lime.
This keeps really well in a big jug in the fridge for a refreshing drink throughout the summer.

Welcome to my Airfryer Strawberry Scones Recipe. Delicious best of British strawberry and cream filled scones. Perfect for afternoon tea or a creamy dessert. Bringing you back to amazing British home baking at its best.
I can’t remember the first time I experienced British Scones, just that they were always part of my daily diet and were a staple for many Brits.
When I was 11 years old and started secondary school, it was the first thing you ever learnt how to make in cookery class because it was so easy. The basic mixture is made up of flour, butter and milk and a little seasoning.
I mean how easy is that?
Then if you want cheesy ones then add a bit of cheese, or more sweet ones add some sugar and raisins.
Or my favourite way to have them is to add some herbs and some mustard and a little wine and serve them over a big fat beef stew. Or if you were having an Irish stew to use some leftover beer instead.
But my best ever scone recipe moments are with my Grandparents. My Grandma would bake them with me. There would be a mix of the traditional rock buns or the cheese variety. So good and there was nothing better than tucking into a warm cheesy scone. Of course there was nothing better than a warm cheese scone with MORE cheese. As that was always the law. Or for the ultimate moment….more butter too!
Then when my Grandma passed away when I was 18 in the year 2000, My Grandad started taking me out for a mid morning scone. We would head out to a nice tearoom and have a cheese scone (or a piece of quiche) with a warm cup of tea. Talk about Yorkshire foodie heaven.
In this Airfryer Cheese Scone recipe we will be using the basic scone mixture, sweetening it up a bit and then cooking it in the Airfryer. Once it is cooked fill it with strawberries and cream and have a real British Scone moment!
British Scones Vs American Biscuits

If there is one debate between British food and American food that needs explaining it has to be the British Scone vs the American Biscuit. I have heard so much wrong information over the years that I believe it has completely confused people.
I think they get talked about so frequently because of how alike they look, yet their flavours and uses are some what different.
American Biscuits tend to be used as an alternative to the British dumpling. It is served with a meal such as American Chicken & Dumplings. Where as the British dumpling will be served inside a beef stew or hotpot. The only similar British alternative is the cobbler scone that is used as an alternative to the dumpling in meals such as a beef cobbler.
British Scones comes in a lot of varieties. There are the rich scones with raisins that you often find in cafes, the cheese variety that many British kids learn to cook at school and plain scones that are used as a basis for many different recipes. There are of course many other varieties but those are the most common.
British Scones are most common as a savoury food as are American biscuits. British Scones tend to be very flour based and many are egg free and have a small amount of butter, compared to American Biscuits which has a much bigger buttery flavour.
Both the British Cheese Scone and the American Biscuit are perfect as a side for a casserole or stew. And are very similar in many ways.
So next time you are travelling to the other country, you now know what to expect and what to ask for!

An easy to make strawberry jam recipe loaded with fresh strawberries and perfect for when you have more strawberries than you can handle. Prepare it into spare glass jars and use it whenever you fancy a strawberry jam fix.
What? You said Homemade Strawberry Jam in the Instant Pot? Well count me in. Wherever that is happening I want some!
Like many 30 somethings that grew up in the North of England in the 80s and 90s strawberry jam was a staple of the diet. You always had at least one jar of it in the door of the fridge and then whenever you had some spare bread, then out would come some bread, butter and strawberry jam.

It was always amazing and always felt like something luxury when it reality it was not. It was cheap to make, delicious and nearly always served for breakfast on a Saturday morning.
My most fond memories were always of my paternal grandparents serving it up. They loved their jam or marmalade on toast. On a Saturday they would start the day with a single boiled egg, followed by loads of buttery toast with lots of strawberry jam or orange marmalade.

I never cared much for the marmalade as I always thought that it tasted disgusting (and still do) but the strawberry jam with the melted butter was out of this world amazing.
It would have come from either the supermarket or a Yorkshire jam and pickle shop.
But on the other hand if you have fresh strawberries and an Instant Pot then making your own Instant Pot Strawberry Jam is an absolute must.
When we made our first batch in the Instant Pot we were so, so tired. It was a heat wave and the temperatures was well into the 40’s and we felt like we had been suffocating from global warming. We had also been up all night comforting our under 3s. As if there is something a toddler and a baby don’t like then it is super hot houses.
But we had a lot of strawberries that needed using up. It was a case of them being super hot and we needed to use them up before they turned and went mouldy. So here we are on little sleep in the heat making strawberry jam.

Thankfully the great thing about the Instant Pot is that it is quick and effortless. You probably put more effort into sterilising the jam jars or eating the jam than you do in making the jam.
Plus as homemade strawberry jam is often 5 ingredients or less than it becomes something super frugal to have in your kitchen.

Here in Portugal everything is always about frugality. So its no surprise that in the hospitals all they seem to give you to snack on is bread and jam. There was so much of it when I was in hospital having my kids that by the time I came out, I didn’t touch jam for a long time.
Well until now that is!
When we made this Instant Pot Strawberry Jam version it made loads of jars and gave us the chance to give some to our next door neighbour. She is a lovely elderly lady and is always giving us fresh fruit and vegetables from her allotment so it gave us the chance to give some back.
Plus even though I love strawberry jam I struggle to eat it all in a reasonable time, so a big batch like this would last me months.
So let me take you back to childhood with some Best of British Strawberry Jam. And next time you have some spare jam, fresh scones or want a roly poly then you know what to do with it!

It is Slimming World friendly and a gluten free winner. A family go to recipe our household and great fun to make with your kids too.
I can’t actually take the credit for these delicious strawberry and cream crepes as I didn’t make them. I watched them been made and then I ate them! Which makes a change because 95% of the recipes on RecipeThis are personally recipe tested from me. But for today I got to have a day off.
Instead it was Kyle making these strawberry and cream crepes. My amazing 15 year old that loves to cook as much as his parents do, was showing me just how talented he is and being part of the latest recipe on the blog. Fresh healthy crepes cooked in the frying pan and then the filling made super fast in the blender.
At the time it was a Sunday morning and it was super hot and it was just one of those nice and tasty breakfasts that we should all have more often.
I sat on the chair in the kitchen as he crafted together some amazing crepes that were filled with soft cheese (Philly of course) along with honey and stevia, then loads of fresh strawberries. Because fresh strawberries rule the world right???
Then a sweet eggy mixture to make the crepes.
A very simple breakfast and a perfect start to the day. It is also rather quick to make too so perfect for if you’re in a rush. Though I may add it is hard to stop with just one of these strawberry and cream crepes as I want to eat loads and loads of them.
But first I am sure you’re probably wondering “why strawberries again”? After all they were only featured on the blog yesterday. Well we just LOVE fresh strawberries and right now in Portugal they are in season. They are everywhere and you can’t escape the beautiful red berry.
It is full of flavour and perfect for all kinds of summer treats.
Plus don’t forget its nutritional benefits:

I even got a shedload of strawberries from the market especially so that I could blog about them over 6 different strawberry recipes. We had an American cocktail on the 4th of July, Slimming World Eton Mess yesterday and then today these amazing strawberry crepes.
We got nearly 7 kilos of strawberries and in Portuguese culture got them for a real bargain. They cost just 3€ a kilo making them 15€. Plus we were charged for just 5 kilos and a couple of elderly ladies packed them all up for us and chose the nicest ones, as Sofia happily ate all the free cherries that they gave her. I don’t think I have ever seen her face so red!

We then brought them home and thought we had way too many of them, but then with how much Sofia loves her fresh strawberries we will be lucky if there is enough to make the recipes with!
In fact after we bought them she made a detour to the park to tuck into some before we went home:

We actually got our fresh strawberries yesterday and decided that the perfect use of them would be some fresh strawberry crepes for a summer Sunday breakfast. So out they came on a very warm late June morning. We have put Kyle in charge of them as he loves this kind of thing and he often has them turning out just so perfect. So if you want to teach your kids to cook then start out with something simple like this!
Crepes Vs Pancakes?

One question often asked is what is the difference between crepes and pancakes? Well the main difference is that crepes are made with plain flour compared to pancakes with self raising flour.
Though some recipes use self raising flour for both and then when they make crepes they just make them with much less batter.

Welcome to my Slimming World Eton Mess Recipe. Enjoy a delicious Slimming World take on Eton Mess. Loaded with extra fresh strawberries, freshly made meringues and a creamy cheesecake style filling this is a Slimming World members best friend!
You’re probably wondering what took me so long. I mean come on, Eton Mess is like the dream dessert for a Brit and I am British born. It is just one of those simple desserts that anybody can make and is perfect for showing off your cooking skills to friends and families, or just a perfect use of leftover fresh strawberries.
Eton Mess has always been a staple in my life and I have always had many different versions. One of my all time favourites (which Dominic and Kyle still love) is when you have a bottom layer of strawberry jelly, then whipped cream and then a layer of Angel Delight, loads of strawberries and then grated milk chocolate.
Or another favourite is when you layer a sundae glass with fresh strawberries, meringue crushed up and loads of strawberry flavoured whipped cream.
Though this version is a little different and is totally Slimming World friendly. It involves freshly made meringue made in the Airfryer. Then we have several layers of fresh strawberries along with strawberry yoghurt style mix. It screams out “EAT ME NOW” and I can guarantee that you will haver the kids arguing over who gets to lick out the bowl when you have finished making it.
Edit – Though in our house when we made this, we found it very funny when our 2.5 year old stole the bowl of our 15 year old and refused to bring it back. The bowl actually looked bigger than her!
Then layer it into glass or plastic sundae containers and serve it to someone special.
Or for summer what we do is take them with us to the beach as they are a perfect beach snack for having with your picnic.
You can also vary it too depending on what fresh fruit you have in. Though I prefer it with strawberries for the ultimate treat. After all strawberries are so fresh and amazing at this time of the year.
What Is Eton Mess?

A traditional Eton Mess is a quick dessert originally aimed at students as a way to impress their date or to impress their parents when they were on a visit. The idea is that it is cheap but cheerful and very easy to make.
It involves broken up meringue, whipped cream and fresh strawberries.
Popular versions of Eton Mess include ones using raspberries, pineapple or bananas instead of strawberries. For dinner parties port is often used to give it a kick.
There are also many versions using traditional cheesecake mixture instead like in my recipe.


Slimming World Eton Mess


In my Slimming World friendly Eton Mess I will be using fresh strawberries, soft cheese, quark and plenty of homemade meringue. It will taste amazing and keep your sugar cravings at bay.


* Blender
* Airfryer
* Airfryer Baking Pan
* 50 g Fresh Strawberries
* 1 Tsp Pureed Strawberries
* 1 Egg Whites
* 50 g Caster Sugar

Bottom Layer:

* 225 g Quark
* 4 Tbsp Greek Yoghurt
* 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
* Red Food Colouring
* 1 Tbsp Honey
* 1 Tsp Stevia



* Start by making the bottom layer. Using a blender add together all the ingredients and blend until smooth. Then using a hand whisk give it a good whisking so that it is thick and creamy.
* Slice up the strawberries and decorate the sundae glass. Add strawberry slices to the bottom and round the sides. Then cover them so that the glass is about ½ full with your bottom layer. Though reserve 4tbsp to one side for your top layer for later on. Fridge for an hour.
* Secondly make your homemade meringues.]]>

Exactly how us at the Milners like our summer chicken sandwiches.
I know I know another Airfryer chicken recipe coming your way. But I love chicken and I love my Airfryer! Plus every recipe you will find on RecipeThis.com are all ones that have passed the kids test so if they like it, then it must be good!
Chicken is so cheap here in Portugal and we often pay as little as 1,40€ for a whole chicken. We will buy 16 chickens from our local Makro and then put them in the freezer for whenever we want some. Then for making this recipe we used 2 large chicken breasts from a whole chicken and along with the bread it was a big portion size for the four of us for lunch.
If you have not tried chopping up a whole chicken yet then you MUST and here is a quick guide to doing so.
Also because chicken is so versatile you could get some chicken out of the freezer the night before for cooking the next day, have the Airfryer in mind, then the next day make a delicious random meal.
As I write this I have my Chicken Spiedie next to me. I can smell the warm bread, the garlic and lemon from the chicken along with a big scent of oregano. It is served with my favourite homemade mayonnaise and it feels truly amazing that my Airfryer is responsible for such a great lunch.
As I bite into it I can’t believe how good something so simple can taste. The chicken is so succulent and the bread is so soft. And I have the best ever husband in the world for making it for me!
I asked him how long it took him as something so good must take hours right? And I was happily mistaken when he said 5 minutes for the prep.
Plus if course making the marinade which I did myself. But it took me about 3 minutes for my part and I love the fact as a family that we can have some teamwork to get family food on the table.
If you’re one of those families that never feels like that they have time to cook then this recipe is for you. Its fast, its simple and it will deliver the lunch of your dreams.
Plus because of the carbs it is great this summer for filling up your kids up. I saw a post on Facebook this morning with a mum complaining about how expensive it is to feed her kids through the summer. Well I realised I spent a lot less than her on food and we have a teenage son, which trust me….they eat a LOT.
What Is A Chicken Spiedie?

A Chicken Spiedie is an Italian sandwich most popular in New York. The chicken is chopped into chunky cubes and are marinated in a specific Italian marinade. Then it is cooked with skewers and served inside fresh homemade bread.
Other variations include pork, lamb, veal, venison or beef instead of the chicken.
The meat of choice is always chicken because of how cheap it is to buy. It is also commonly served in a warm Italian bread roll.
The same marinated chicken is also well known for being served in stews, casseroles, stir fries and summer salads.
There is also a festival in New York every summer where a cook off takes place for the best Spiedie recipe. This has happened every August since 1983.

The bread of your dreams that you can make over and over again and use for a whole variety of dishes, not just pull apart bread. Make this pull apart this bread for supper and serve with your favourite soups and casseroles. Plus it is so simple to make, that even your kids can make it!
I love easy pull apart bread. It is one of those things that is so shockingly easy to make yourself you will wonder why you ever bought bread instead of making it. The bread suppliers have a huge mark up on what they charge for bread and this easy pull apart bread is a life saver for saving money and making amazing things for your family to eat.
I have this love affair with bread that has been going on for a number of years now. I can’t remember when it started, it was just always there. I love fresh bagettes bought from the supermarket and then brought home to eat with a warm pasta salad. Or another favourite is Welsh Rarebit.
I love warm homemade just cooked bread, where you spread it with a little butter and then it melts in your mouth. Or if you are feeling really naughty add a little melted cheese for the ultimate lunch time moment.
Sadly, when I eat loads of bread, I end up fat so the love/hate relationship is in full swing. But I do have some homemade bread at least once a month and when I do it is this exact recipe that I follow.
Or my favourite excuse is that I am a food blogger so I must recipe test. Not that my big helpings of fresh bread with melted butter, ever make it onto the blog!
The bread proves in the Airfryer (I better you never knew you could do that with an Airfryer????) and then you cook it in the Airfryer once it has risen. The Airfryer is also the perfect shape for pull apart bread too and then you can serve it for lunch or dinner.

We tend to have ours in warm sandwiches and our all time favourite filling is meatballs and then use this recipe as your go to bread and then make it into your own homemade meatball sub. Or if you are a soup addict then it is perfect for dunking your freshly made soup into.
Whatever your use is, then save these pull apart bread rolls for your next bread moment, or reshape them for traditional hotdog buns and then you have your next mega bread foodie moment!
Though one thing I can guarantee, is that like us you will fight over the last piece of this easy pull apart bread!

* Knead the bread for 5 minutes. Place a damp tea towel over the bowl with the bread dough in it and find a hot place for it to sit. After an hour repeat the kneading and proving process but for 30 minutes this time.
* After it has proved make into bread roll shapes.
* Easy Pull Apart Bread. For it to become pull apart bread rolls, make them into medium sized bread buns but make sure that they are touching each other and don’t have room to breathe. And place the bread rolls directly into the Airfryer. This will give you the pull apart look.]]>

Welcome to my Airfryer dark chocolate chunk cookies recipe. Featuring delicious chunks of dark chocolate in the best ever vanilla flavoured cookies. Perfect for a quick cookie sensation via the Philips Airfryer and a family favourite here in the Milner household.
I have this problem. It’s a really big problem…..I am addicted to cookies. They are just so addictive and I can never just stop at one.
The smell. The texture. The chewy sensation. The melted chocolate in the middle. Need I go on?
Even talking about it now and I want a big fat dark chocolate chunk cookie.
Maybe that is the reason why people with discipline are super skinny and I am not. But I would rather have cookies than be a size zero, as life is for living and life is for these dark chocolate chunk cookies!!!
Well can you blame me?

What I tend to do is overload them with vanilla essence, then break into them tiny little chunks of dark chocolate. I will buy a big bar of dark chocolate and then each square will be broken up into about 3-4 and then I will add them to the cookies last.
I will poke them into the top of the cookies and then they leave a nice surprise as you bite into them.
Or at Christmas what I will do is have a flattened out cookie shape, add a little dark chocolate and then wrap the cookie round it. That will leave a chunk of cookie in the centre, I will then turn it into a ball.
Then the person getting the dark chocolate chunk cookies will not know about the dark chocolate and then all of a sudden the ball will explode in their mouth to reveal the best ever chocolate sensation.
Dominic asks for these all the time, but I point out that we would end up the size of a house if we ate them all the time. Though I have to have a LOT of self discipline as otherwise I would eat dark chocolate chunk cookies all the time.
But best of all I cook them in the Airfryer. This is a fantastic way of doing things as Airfryer cookies taste so chewy, goey and crunchy all at the very same time. They really do taste 300% better than ones that are oven baked.
Plus if you are anything like us, if you forget about them, the Airfryer will stop after the time is up. Then you wont feel like such an idiot, if you normally burn them by forgetting that they are still cooking away in the oven.

Chocolate Chunk Cookies Vs Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is often a big fat cookie debate over whether or not to use chocolate chunks or chocolate chips.
Chocolate chunks give you a melt in your mouth sensation, but less of them feature in the actual cookie.
Chocolate chips however tend to be more expensive to buy, but more of them go into a cookie.
Both are perfect for the cookie addict and for the frugal family its best to use a mix of both or whether the cheapest type is.
I will leave the decision up to you!

Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Airfryer Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Melt in your mouth dark chocolate chunk cookies made with delicious 70% dark chocolate, brown sugar and honey. A chocolate addicts dream come true.

* Airfryer Grill Pan

* 125 g Butter
* 100 g Brown Sugar
* 50 g Caster Sugar
* 2 Medium Eggs (beaten)
* 1 Tbsp Honey
* 2 Tsp Vanilla Essence
* 125 g Dark Chocolate
* Pinch Of Salt



* Beat the brown sugar into the butter until it is nicely creamed and you don’t have that gritty brown sugar feeling.
* Stir in the white sugar, honey, vanilla, salt and egg. After a quick mix return to the hand mixer for a couple of minutes or until it is well mixed. Use a fork to get the excess from down the sides of the bowl.
* Add the flour and mix well and then use your hands to form cookie s...]]>

Welcome to Nandos Beanie Burger In The Airfryer recipe. Delicious vegan friendly black bean burger, perfect for if you are vegan or vegetarian and want to eat Nandos food.
If you have visited RecipeThis.com before then you will know that we are addicted to cooking burgers in the Airfryer. We have made lots of different ones over the years both meaty and vegetarian. We got from one to the other depending on what burger ingredients we have in the house.
Right now we are done to just one pack of minced beef left in our freezer and need to go shopping for some more. But we have loads of cauliflower and black beans in for some delicious veggie burgers. Or we have loads of whole chickens in our freezer for a delicious homemade chicken version.

These are our most popular burgers for the meat lovers:

* Best Ever Airfryer Burgers
* Airfryer Leftover Turkey Burgers
* KFC Zinger Burger
* Burger King Whopper

For our veggie burger lovers:

* Cauliflower Veggie Burger
* Courgette & Chickpea Burgers
* Vegan Lentil Burgers

Thank you so much to everyone that has shared our main 7 recipes above. It means a lot and helps spread the word about delicious Airfryer cooking.
But apart from our recent vegan lentil burgers we really do lack in the vegan department. So if you are a vegan apologies in advance and I will try and do more and more vegan food!
Though I think this is because I love my meat and cheese that I find it hard work to cook without them.
But as part of my Nandos range I decided to put together the best of the best vegan burger for those that don’t like lentils and want a really tasty vegan experience.
There is nothing worse than going out to eat (or eating in) and the rest of your party having all this lovely meat and you feeling like you’re missing out because you are a vegan or vegetarian.
In these Nandos Beanie Burger the star of the show will be the black beans. Just because black beans are so fantastic and are so underrated. They are used a lot in both Portuguese and Brazilian cookery and we always have quite a few cans of them in our cupboard for whenever we need them.

Then garnish up your Nandos beanie burger with all your favourite salad items, add a quality bun and a side of some sweet potato fries and then you’re ready to rock and roll.
Another great thing about these beanie burgers is the fact to spice them up you just need some of your leftover marinade. So if you are cooking loads of the traditional Peri Peri Nandos Chicken for your friends and you have a vegan or a veggie coming for dinner. Then reserve some of the marinade for them.
They will also love you for it as they will think that you have gone to such a great effort to make them feel special, when in reality it is so easy to make.

Welcome to how to make Nandos Spicy Rice In The Instant Pot. Discover the secret behind delicious Portuguese spicy rice cooked to perfection in the Instant Pot and then served with the Peri Peri Chicken of your choice.
 I must say that I am totally and utterly addicted to rice. In fact I can’t remember a time when I didn’t like rice as it was always part of my diet and something that I always got excited over.
Though it has never been good to my abs. I literally look at a Paella and I have gained 9 pounds in weight!
But it doesn’t mean I don’t dream and always want rice. It just means that there is usually some cauliflower rice involved instead these days!
Looking back though my first memory of rice is probably in local restaurants.
I would have some pilau rice at the Indian restaurant with my butter chicken along with a garlic naan bread and it would be foodie heaven. Or trips to the Chinese restaurant would involve a good helping of egg fried rice.
Then as I got older I discovered a love for seafood paella and would be lost without the staple Spanish dish whenever I visited Spain. Even now when we cross the border into Spain I am always talking about where I am going to get my Paella fix!
But now as I find myself celebrating the 9th year of living here in Portugal and I am head over hills truly in love with the food and in particular the rice.
I have eaten out at many Portuguese restaurants and there are 2 staples you will always find with every meal. One would be the delicious Portuguese spicy rice and the other would be a Portuguese salad. Then whatever your main dish would be, would be served with these two.
There would be Piri Piri Chicken with rice and salad, steak with rice and salad, chicken kebabs with rice and salad. And the list goes on and on. Oh and I better not forget the bread and olives that you eat while you are waiting for your food to arrive. Clearly we are talking a lot of traditional Mediterranean food here and that you can see that the Portuguese wouldn’t last even a day on the Paleo diet!
The spicy rice would always have a kick to it, but would never be that spicy that it would blew your face off. I like to taste the flavours of my food without feeling like it is so spicy that you can’t taste what else is in it.
In reality what I like is to taste all those great flavours that go into the rice. The garlic, the saffron, red pepper, parsley, coriander and the green peas. Then of course the spicy element that brings the rice dish alive.
Then I tend to keep some in the fridge and serve some cold as it is perfect for the beach at this time of the year. Or take it to a friends barbecue for something different to taking a bottle of wine.
To make it into a cold spicy rice afterwards, simply allow it to cool overnight, then add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise along with a little Greek yoghurt. Then you could also do the same with pasta dishes too.
If you are new to making Nandos Spicy rice then you need to learn first:

* It’s all about the Mediterranean flavours
* Garlic is the star of the dish
* It’s has a beginner spice volume
* You can add leftover chicken to it to make a big family hearty meal
* Use your marinade into the stock for the best flavours

Plus we make it in the Instant Pot and with a pan for a really quick spicy rice dish. It saves a lot of time and blink and it is all cooked.

Welcome to Nandos Chicken Wings in the Airfryer recipe. Enjoy delicious truly crispy chicken wings the Portuguese way, with Peri Peri flavoured chicken wings. Full of flavour and perfect for date night or family suppers.
Today as this blog post goes live we will be celebrating a whole 9 years living in the Algarve in Southern Portugal. We wont be around as this post goes live as we have a family tradition that on this very special day that we hit the beach. So our love from the beach!
There is not a day that goes by when we don’t think about how much we love living here and the culture of the country we now call home.
We escaped the bad weather, the high cost of living and the high crime of the north of England nine years ago today and we feel so blessed.
We love the beautiful sunshine, the low cost of living and the low crime rates. Though out of everything we get most excited over the food. I mean who doesn’t just adore Mediterranean foods? They are nutritious yet they taste so good that you forget they are healthy for you.
Take these Nandos Chicken Wings. Made with the wholesome Piri Piri Chicken marinade they are perfect for families that want something special yet simple and want to spend time with their families rather than all night in the kitchen.
You soak them overnight in the Nandos marinade and then place them straight into the Airfryer the next day when you want to eat them.
I actually use the baking pan that you can get as an accessory for the Airfryer. Just because it has no holes in it, has a handle for carrying it with, makes it great for Airfrtyer to dinner table cooking experience. You can then serve it up on your dinner table with the spare marinade that can then form as a dipping sauce.
Also if you are following the Whole 30 or Paleo and want something good to serve your friends without making them feel like you have forced them on a diet, then this is the dish of your dreams.
Plus everyone loves a good chicken wings recipe!
Then you could also serve them up with our Nandos whole chicken along with a salad and your guests would be very impressed.
But first if you have only ever known spicy chicken wings to be buffalo flavoured then you are in for a treat when you try out Nandos. They are the next big thing to hit the globe, as they have grown a lot in recent years around the world.
But if you haven’t heard of them then read on:
What Is Nandos?

Nandos is an international food chain specialising in barbecued chicken. Its chicken is cooked with the famous Peri Peri marinade. It originated in South Africa by a Portuguese born man by the name of Fernando, hence its famous name.
The chicken is also served in quarters, halves and wholes just like it is in Portugal.
It also serves a range of other dishes including burgers, salads, wings and wraps.
It has a big worldwide fan base with outlets in Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe & North America.
The Nandos brand is constantly growing as people love the spicy flavours alongside authentic African/Portuguese cuisine.

Welcome to how to make Nandos chicken in the Airfryer. Get ready for a taste sensation of crispy whole chicken with a medium spiced peri peri marinade. Served with mixed potato wedges and giving you an authentic Portuguese meal experience.
I will be sharing with you my fail safe plan for a delicious Nandos whole chicken with the famous peri peri marinade. As well as this I will be sharing with you 2 different versions along with the dream Nandos sauce. You can then print it and save it and have a Nandos takeaway at home.
For me Peri Peri (or Piri Piri as I know it) is one of my favourite ever foodie moments and it makes me so glad that I can call Portugal my home country. I am a British Expat so I can’t say I was born with it in my blood, but I have called it home for the last 9 years and I dread to think in that time, how many times I have binged my way through the spicy Portuguese chicken.
Our favourite way to enjoy it is from our local supermarket. You see here in Portugal (well unless you live in a big city) there is no such thing as ringing up a takeaway. Those British days when you rang up a takeaway and pizza came to your door 20 minutes later are well gone. Instead you grab something to take away from the supermarket instead.
We will buy a Piri Piri Rotisserie Chicken, some fresh bread, some pate and some cheese. Then cook some potato wedges in the Airfryer and that will be our dream takeaway night.
We are also not alone with this though, as we also see a lot of Portuguese doing the same thing. Though many of them will add some ham to the list as they can’t live without their cheese, ham and bread.
So when I upgraded from the standard Philips Airfryer to the XL Philips Airfryer, I learnt that it was now big enough for this kind of feast.
How To Make Nandos Sauce

To start with we are talking about the marinade. That amazing homemade sauce that Nandos makes to go over your raw chicken before you cook it to crispy perfection in the Philips Airfryer.


How To Make Nandos Chicken In The Airfryer


Its actually a really quick marinade and then you throw it in the blender to blitz it, then brush your Nandos marinade over your chicken, air fry the chicken as usual and then you have the most amazing Nandos Peri Peri Chicken. Then tuck in and drink lots of wine!



* Airfryer
* Blender
* 1 Whole Chicken
* 400 ml Olive Oil
* 150 ml Homemade Baked Tomato Sauce
* 1 Tbsp Garlic Puree
* 1 Tbsp Paprika
* 1 Tbsp Parsley
* 1 Tbsp Piri Piri Seasoning
* Salt & Pepper



* Chop your chicken in half so that it is halfway through the breastbone and so that each side has equal parts of everything.
* Place the chicken onto a sheet of silver foil as it will make it easiest for marinating with less mess.
* In a blender add to it everything apart from the chicken that you see in the ingredients list. Blitz until you have a coarse marinade.
* Season your chicken on both sides (over the silver foil) in extra salt and pepper. Then using a pastry brush, brush over the marinade onto all the skin parts of the chicken, so that it is well coated.
* Fridge for an hour then place them in the bottom of your Airfryer.
* Cook the 2 halves for 15 minutes at 180c/356f with the bone side down and then 10 minutes with the bones up at the same temperature.
* Serve.


The Whole chickens that we buy average a weight of 2 kilos (4.4 pounds) so adjust your timings if you use a bigger or a smaller one. But because we are cooking in the Airfryer (for best results) you will want to make sure the chicken fits in!
You can use either one tablespoon of garlic puree or 12 crushed medium sized garlic cloves.

For the next six days here on RecipeThis.com we will be sharing our love for the Portuguese spicy chicken. Known in some parts of the world as Peri Peri and in others as Piri Piri chicken it has become a much loved food staple. We plan to share with you five days of delicious recipes and then finish with showing you how to turn it into a Slimming World Fakeaway for the ultimate homemade takeaway. So come back later for the foodie experience of a lifetime.
Where do I start about Nandos and their Peri Peri Chicken? Well at the beginning of course….. The first time I heard about the spicy Portuguese chicken was when I first tried it in Portugal. We had recently moved house and had just started renting our first apartment here in Portugal.
It was in a small town in the Algarve in Southern Portugal and even though we don’t live there now, we are still just 10 minutes drive away if we fancy a chicken fix. The town itself has a busy Saturday morning market, a few shops, a beautiful river, a great park that the local families love but where you can exercise too.

We lived there for just short of six years and had a great time.
But I still remember the day we moved in as if it was yesterday. It was a bank holiday and unlike countries like in England when things are still open, if it is a major bank holiday everything is closed here and it is like a ghost town.
So we ended up having to drive hours into the city to get some grocery shopping as we had absolutely nothing in to eat.
On the phone to my mum, she said that we must try the chicken place within the week or else. Like my life depended on it. All she said is you will know which one it is and it cooks Chicken Piri Piri outside.
Well in our typical bad luck style we went to the wrong one. We went next door and it was horrible. And of course that was our first proper taste of it. As all we had tried before this was a bad campsite experience that was over spicy and with a huge amount of soggy horrible fries.
What we were looking for was the real thing. Something authentic that would get us excited about spicy barbecued chicken.
So eventually we made it next door to the right one. And we wasn’t disappointed. We had the most amazing piri piri chicken served with homemade chips, Mediterranean salad and served with bread and olives. Plus it was washed down with white wine for the perfect chicken experience.
We were hooked. So when people started talking about Nandos and Peri Peri Chicken we realised there really wasn’t much difference between one and the other. It was also nice to say that we had the real thing here in Portugal at a much cheaper price. To say that we were paying (and still pay now in 2017) just 8€ each and it includes drinks and desserts is truly magical and makes us so grateful for our life here in Portugal.
You can actually read our review on one of our local Portuguese restaurants that serves Piri Piri Chicken each Wednesday. We published it yesterday and if you’re ever on holiday here in Portugal then you must try it.

We have lost count now, how many times we have tried Piri Piri Chicken over the years. Even the rotisserie chicken sold in the supermarkets here is Piri Piri.
So as we are celebrating nine years living in the Algarve this month we thought of nothing better than getting our Airfryer out and showing you how to make the most amazing Nandos Peri Peri Chicken yourself.
Plus if you cook it like we do, then it is so healthy too. Perfect for if you are on the Whole 30, Paleo,]]>

I am a HUGE cinema addict. I just love the movies. I have a collection of over 300 movies and I have favourites that I have seen over and over again.
Off the top of my head I can think of a few favourites that I have seen more times than I would admit to….Death Becomes Her, Naked Gun, The Shawshank Redemption, Philadelphia, The Lion King, Goodfellas, Breakfast At Tiffanys, The Next 3 Days, Saw and the list goes on and on.
I never found anybody (well until I met Dominic) that would enjoy a good movie as much as me. So before I met him I would head to the cinema solo and enjoy back to back movies.
I think the first time I did this was when I saw Toy Story for the first time. It was in a boring small town in East England and I was on holiday with my parents and there was nothing to do. I had a wonder into the town and found a cinema. So I was happy. I sat down with my popcorn and was lost in the movie.

I was 13 at the time and I have seen 100’s of 100’s of movies since and had a LOT of popcorn.
But there is a big problem with popcorn as far as I am concerned…..It is either too boring (just salt) or too unhealthy (the caramel version). There is no in between that I could get excited about, well that is until I made this:

Imagine just adding some really delicious cheddar cheese instead along with coconut oil? It gives you a delicious in between method rather than it being too low in calories vs too high in calories.
It is flavoursome and if you love cheese and you want something really special to snack on during the evenings then this is the snack of your dreams.
Make a quick batch of this for your next Netflix marathon, the next movie you plan to watch or even take it to work with you to snack on.
Though a bit of advice – keep it away from teenage boys (well if you want some) as they can eat a huge bowl of it in under 20 minutes. And then make you super jealous as they maintain their size zero body while you struggle to keep your flabby belly under control.
Plus you can change this for whatever cheese you fancy. I used some really nice cheddar cheese. Because being a British Expat that is the cheese of choice, but Swiss cheese like you would use in a cheese and ham toastie is equally perfect.
But never mind that, get out your Instant Pot, get it hot and lets dive in and make some popcorn!!!

Welcome to my Copycat Air Fried McChicken Sandwich recipe here at RecipeThis.com. Whether it is spring, summer, autumn or winter you can guarantee that a McChicken sandwich will be cooking in our Airfryer.
I have always loved the McDonalds chicken burger. For me it has been the simplicity that has always attracted me to it. How something can taste so good when there really isn’t that much to it. You have a delicious piece of breaded chicken, followed by a big portion of mayonnaise, a handful of lettuce and a nice bun.
Not really a lot to get excited about, but the McChicken Sandwich has always done it for me. I used to have them in McDonalds a lot in my teens and would have them with some medium fries and a milkshake. It was lunch time heaven and to show how long ago it was, it would cost just £2.99. They cost close to double that now in Portugal so times have certainly changed from the mid 90’s.
I notice that whenever you go the local shopping centre here in Portugal that its rare that you see a Portuguese family eating there.
The reason…
Fast Food at McDonalds is too expensive and is considered a luxury. You compare spending 5-6€ per person in McDonalds to eating at the local Portuguese café and there is a big difference. You can get a full meal there rather than a McDonalds that rarely fills you up for about 30% less. Or pay the same amount as McDonalds and you can expect to have a filling fairly healthy Mediterranean meal, including a drink and small dessert.
I am with them on that.
I can often go to McDonalds and end up spending 20€ and looking down at our tray and feeling like we really don’t have that much for our money.
But make your own McDonalds at home and its amazing how much money you can save, how delicious the food can be, how filling it can be and how much fun it can be to make one together as a family.
In this McChicken Sandwich I will be showing you how to make a delicious homemade chicken sandwich in the Airfryer, then you serve it with our Airfryer French Fries, Airfryer Onion Rings, Airfryer Chicken Nuggets and our Airfryer Chicken Wrap and then you have a huge McDonalds style feast. Plus don’t forget to wash it down with my strawberry frappe!

How Many Calories In A McChicken Sandwich?

A McDonalds McChicken Sandwich or a McRoyal Chicken (as they call them here on the Mediterranean) comes in at 357 calories. It is a lower calorie option for calorie counters compared to the Big Mac which is 563 calories.
However the McChicken Sandwich is unlikely to fill you up and keep hungry at bay thanks to it being just 131g compared to the 219g of a Big Mac.
If you added medium fries to a McChicken Sandwich then you would be looking at a total calorie consumption of 697 calories.

Welcome to how to make homemade mozzarella sticks in the Airfryer. Experience the Airfyer wow factor by learning how to make homemade mozzarella sticks. A family favourite in our household with delicious buffalo mozzarella and a healthy crispy coating.
There is some people out there that like cheese a little and then there are others that like it a lot. My mum is one of those true addicts. She would eat it from dawn until dusk and then back until dawn again if she was given the opportunity. Normally served up with bread with big cheese boards or on toast.
In fact she was the first person to ever get me addicted to cheese. Starting off when I was in the womb.
I have fond memories of snacking on cheese with my mum, loads of cheese on toast and don’t get me started about trips to Betty’s for Welsh Rarebit.
I would say that out of everything I ever give up to do the Whole 30 (did I really do that for 30 days last month???) cheese was one of the hardest.
It is kind of that staple that is always in your fridge and makes meals taste just so good. How often do you really enjoy a meal and then remember that some cheese has been added?
Often during the Whole 30 the comments from the boys will always be that they loved the food, but it was missing some cheese.
But when you eat cheese you can often end up eating loads of hard cheddar cheese which is really not very good for you. BUT quality buffalo mozzarella is so good for you and is completely natural.
It tastes horrible on its own as it lacks flavour, but cook it and you have a cheese goddess moment. Then cover it in a gluten free coating and you have a great flourless option for a quick snack with your leftover cheese.
My kids also love it when I serve them up with sweet potato fries or if I cover other things in oats for a tapas moment.
Though the best thing is that I use the baking pan with my Airfryer as it fits perfectly inside the basket and then you don’t have to worry about the coating getting stuck in the basket wires of your Airfryer.
Burger King Mozzarella Sticks

Burger King Mozzarella Sticks come in at 350 calories for four of them. This works out at 87.5 calories each. They are deep fried and are often bought as a side dish for the Big Whopper along with French Fries.
However they are so easy to make yourself at home with a few simple smart ingredients. Homemade mozzarella sticks can be made gluten free and can come in at 66 calories each. This includes a generous portion of cheese for all us cheese addicts out there!
In our recipe a pack of four (the same size you get at Burger King) works out at 264 calories saving you 86 calories per serving.

Welcome to Airfryer Honey Glazed Pineapple Fries recipe. Delicious fresh pineapple cooked to perfection in the Airfryer. Seasoned with cinnamon and honey for the ultimate sweet fruit moment.
One of my biggest ever foodie addictions in the Milner household is the Brazilian barbecue. If you have not experienced one then you MUST as it is a meat lovers dream. It is where they serve up lots of different cuts of meat in a garlic marinade at your table. They literally keep feeding you until you BEG them to stop.
It varies from restaurant to restaurant with what you actually get, but usually you can expect thick Brazilian sausages and several varieties of red meat. My favourite is always the sirloin that is so garlicky that I can’t stop at 3 slices.
But then the meal finishes on fresh pineapple. It is a case of you always make sure that you have enough room for the warm pineapple.
It will be warm rather than overcooked and will have a delicious cinnamon flavour. Dominic has never really been a fan of cinnamon, but with this it is a small portion rather than overpowering and tastes so, so good.
You can read all about our favourite Brazilian restaurant in Spain, that we visited last summer and see some more examples of the great food.
And we have been to a few Brazilian restaurants over the years and it was the inspiration behind making this honey glazed pineapple fries below:

I mean looking at that, isn’t it enough to turn you into a Paleo addict on the spot? I know it has for us.
Though beware you can’t just stop at one portion. They are so addictive and perfect for these summer months when you want a big family fruit moment.
Or you can swap the Airfryer for the outdoor barbecue if you prefer.
Best Ever Airfryer Fries Recipes

If you have read my blog for a while you will know that I absolutely love fries. My blog is famous for the Airfryer recipes and with Airfryers being originally made for fries, it is no wonder that I have a few.
I decided to put together some honey glazed pineapple fries, because I am often on Paleo and want something really sweet to eat that is Paleo approved without having to get out the coconut flour.
For many people coconut flour can be hard to use so if you can find a sweet alternative without using it, then it will make life so much easier. Plus I love coconut but I prefer it in a savoury dish (think Thai curries) rather than in Paleo cookies.
Plus these pineapple fries are so easy to make, you will wonder why you didn’t make them for the last few years.
For other recipes though here are my other Best Ever Airfryer Fries:

* Traditional French Fries
* Vegetable Fries
* Sweet Potato Fries
* Sloppy Joes Cheesy Fries
* Must Try Curly Fries

Airfryer Honey Glazed Pineapple Fries


Airfryer Honey Glazed Pineapple Fries


Delicious and flavoursome but with just 3 ingredients. These pineapple fries are a super healthy, sweet tooth, family favourite. You will never think of pineapple in the same way again after trying these.


* Airfryer
* Airfryer Grill Pan
* 100 g Fresh Pineapple
* 2 Tbsp Honey
* 2 Tsp Cinnamon



* If your pineapple is still whole, peel and chip the pineapple into chunky chip shapes.

Taking you on a foodie travel journey to Germany we have delicious chicken schnitzel. Enjoy an authentic chicken experience with a healthy take of the traditional deep fried classic. Welcome to my simply the best Air fried chicken schnitzel recipe. Taking you on a foodie travel journey to Germany we have delicious chicken schnitzel. Enjoy an authentic chicken experience with a healthy take of the traditional deep fried classic.
Whenever I see chicken breast at the supermarket I always get excited. That is because chicken is just so versatile and I can think of loads of different favourite recipes I can make with it.
I can make a stir fry, I can cook it in a coconut sauce, I can make a curry, I can serve it in coconut oil with garlic potatoes, I can make chicken fajitas, I can make chicken noodle soup, I can make a chicken pie. The truth is the ideas are endless.
But one thing that I am super addicted to doing with my chicken breast is breading it. My favourite fast food is KFC and the fact that I can use my Airfryer to make delicious breaded chicken instead of battered, means that I can enjoy healthier versions of the old classics. In fact by breading it like in this Chicken Schnitzel recipe you can be looking at reducing the calories by up to 70%.
Whenever I bread my chicken (which is never as often as I would like) I will often use this method in this recipe where I use gluten free oats and then it makes it completely Whole 30 and Paleo and perfect for the health conscious cook.
SO I always feel especially cheerful and excited that you can make something so healthy and in your head you’re thinking that you’re eating out at KFC when you are not.

When I was doing my usual research when recipe testing this delicious Chicken Schnitzel I was rather shocked by how many different versions there are around the world of this classic. A classic that is most famous for Germany but many other countries in Europe have as a dinner staple. Some versions use spicy flavourings and some don’t even bread it.
But this is my version, just like how we have it here in Portugal but with a more German  feel. So if you ever fancy putting some Chicken Schnitzel into your Airfryer and giving your kids an amazing dinner, then here is your chance!
What Is Chicken Schnitzel?

A schnitzel is basically the German word for meat and is usually the type of meat also known around the world as scalloped. The meat is often flattened out with a meat tenderiser, coated in bread crumbs and beaten egg. It is fried or baked and even though chicken is the most popular meat it is also popular with veal, beef, turkey or pork.
Here in Portugal though we have what is known locally as “panado de frango” and it is served in restaurants and cafes with salad and rice. It is absolutely delicious and because the chicken is pounded flat it can make an incredibly frugal dish.
Chicken Schnitzel


Simply The Best Air Fried Chicken Schnitzel


Chicken seasoned the classic German way, rolled in beaten egg and a delicious gluten free mix, then air fried until beautifully crispy. Serve with either white potatoes or roast potatoes and prepared and cooked in less than 20 minutes. Also perfect for feeding a family of four.


* Airfryer
* Blender
* Airfryer Grill Pan
* 2 Chicken Breast
* 12 Tbsp Gluten Free Oats
* 2 Medium Eggs
* 2 Tbsp Mustard Powder
* Salt & Pepper
* Fresh Parsley
* Garlic Potatoes (optional)
* Lemon Wedges (optional)



* Place your chicken breasts onto a clean chopping board. Then following either of the methods below (see the notes section) flatten out your chicken so that you have 4 flat pieces of chicken breast.

A delicious dose of Greek food on your dinner plate this summer with a classic take on Greek Souvlaki cooked in the Philips Airfryer.
This Airfryer Greek Chicken Souvlaki is sponsored by California Home Goods & their 3 compartment storage containers.
My cousin and I chat a lot on Facebook messenger. We put the world to rights, talk about what we have done that day, talk about what we are eating and what we are doing. Before we know it a couple of hours has passed and Dominic wants to know what is so interesting considering we just chatted the night before.
Sadly though, we live thousands of miles away from each other. She is based in Vermont in the US, while we are based here in the Algarve in Portugal. We haven’t seen each other face to face for 5 years and its so sad that it has to be like that, as I would love her to be on my doorstep.
But the conversation often ends up being about America Vs Europe. As there is a lot of cultural differences that we end up chatting about.
I am envious whenever she sends me pictures of her eating the latest flavour of Ben & Jerry’s (we only get about 4 options here in Portugal) and normally that picture will come through when I am craving some sugar during a Paleo/Whole 30 day.
Then I will talk to her about the low cost of living in Portugal, the amazing olive oil, our lemon tree, the street traders with the fresh oranges or the fresh seafood.
We will then get engrossed into each others cultures and it can be rather exciting even though we live miles away from each other.
One conversation that came up recently was the summer and we each do and what the local traditions are. Clearly I have priorities and I am spilling all the gossip about the super size doughnuts filled with a cutard and cream, that are sold on the beach for a Euro. And that on those days we make a picnic and hit the beach with our homemade quiche, sausage rolls and tuna salad.

I ask her what they have. To which she tells me that they have barbecues that you can use on the beach. You bring your cooler with your raw chicken and then start cooking.
This is something we don’t have (though I wish they did) and it got me thinking and inspired me with todays Greek chicken Souvlaki recipe. You see my lovely cousin writes the reviews for me for products that we work with that our US based. It saves on shipping costs, customs issues and we make an excellent partnership!
So after she put together some chicken and packaged it up for the beach (see the review further down) I decided that whether you Air Fried or barbecued these little Greek Chicken Souvlaki were just perfect.
Let me explain a little more.
Imagine that you are either going to someone’s house for a barbecue, having one at home and want all your food together, or like my cousin Tracy you are hitting the beach with your barbecue.

You then use these 3 compartment storage containers to make your marinade in and then package everything up and take them down to the beach.
You can pack up lots of them and take them with you on your day out.

Or alternatively (like we did with them here in Portugal) is to use them for preparing your home barbecue food and then it saves dragging lots of marinades outside, then you have everything all in one place.
You could do them for all kinds of chicken marinades. BUT I am a huge fan of Greek Chicken Souvlaki and felt that if I was going to make something it would be these. And as well as a barbecue you can have the delicious just barbecued flavour from the Philips Airfryer. Then don’t think it just has to be summer because you could make them all year round.

A refreshing drink for the 4th of July and beyond, perfect for toddlers that want an elegant cocktail and a must have for adults at summer barbecues.
If you want to make an amazing drink for your kids this summer then look no further than a Virgin Daiquiri.
Our 4th Of July Virgin Daiquiri is filled with three different fresh fruits:

* Blueberries
* Strawberries
* Lemons

As well as this we have fresh lime juice along with stevia to give it that amazing summer flavour.
If you were one of those mums (like I was once) that gave your kids things like Robinsons Squash and assumed it was healthy when it wasn’t then you’re not alone. I did this too. The label that said “no added sugar” always made me feel safe until I realised it was not as healthy as I first thought.
Like many you buy into the TV adverts and get excited about and then when you learn the truth you soon realise that making your kids Virgin Daiquiris from scratch can take as little as three minutes.
YES THREE MINUTES.
That is all it has taken me to make this refreshing summer Virgin Daiquiri drink for the 4th of July. I say 4th of July and the anniversary of the declaration of independence, as that is when I am at my hottest and desperately need to pick the lemons from our lemon tree to make it.

Plus when you have your wine its nice for the kids to have some special to get excited about. But first you might be wondering what a Virgin Daiquiri is?
What Is Virgin Daiquiri?

A Virgin Daiquiri is basically a cocktail that is free of alcohol and has a strong citrus focus. The citrus fruit is commonly lime though you can often see lemon being used. After fruit the second most common ingredient is sugar.
There are many variations on a Daiquiri with some featuring just rum, strawberries and sugar and many having a twist on famous cocktails.
The name Daiquiri comes from an American mining engineer. He was working in Cuba at the time and named the drink after a local beach. It then became popular in America when it was tried out among the cocktail scene in New York City.
The drink was originally served in a tall glass packed with cracked ice and a teaspoon of sugar would be poured over the ice. It would then have fresh lime squeezed over the sugar.
It has been modernised a bit since but that is the basics.
Happy 4th Of July From RecipeThis.com
Well its hard to believe that it is the 4th of July already. For us 4th of July tells us that summer is here and that we must wear our suntan cream at all times and avoid the sun at the hottest part of the day. We will get up early and then lock ourselves indoors once it hits lunch time and then enter the world again once it is early evening.
You see we grew up in England. Therefore unless there was a heatwave you would be lucky if you saw better than 25 degrees on a good day and 16 on a bad day. You would go on nice holidays abroad in order to get your sunshine fix.
But having spent the last 9 years living in Portugal it is very hot come July time. As I write this Virgin Daiquiri Recipe, we have just got back from a trip to the market for fresh strawberries. It was 40 degrees and at the time of writing it was the 17th of June. A heat wave for June and so, so hot.
So we always think that once the 4th of July comes it is going to be super hot everyday up until early September. And that you must have access to a really good beach or swimming pool to cope.
Also as a food blogger (and an internet marketer before that) with a big US customer base, I have always taken off the 4th of July. It’s a time to celebrate my wonderful American family and because our readers are not online we treat it as a day off.
We also thought it would be fun to look back at last 4th of July photos so here it is:...]]>

Welcome to how to make Syn free burgers in the Airfryer. This is a REAL taste sensation for anybody that loves burgers but is on a diet. They’re made completely fat free with absolutely no oil. They are full of amazing flavours and transform you back to the old fashioned American diner experience.
My first ever experiences of homemade burgers growing up was one of two. Trips to McDonalds or family barbecues.
McDonalds was something that my Grandparents mainly took me to as my parents were not that keen as they realised how rubbish the food was and it was only ever done to keep me happy!
But then I got older and I earned my own money and when you were working about 5 doors away from McDonalds you could nip in there for your lunch in between shifts. It was great and I could get what I wanted and then know that I would burn the calories off at work. I would probably do this most Saturdays in my early teens.
I would have either the McChicken sandwich or the Big Mac and then wash it down with a delicious banana milkshake. It was teenage heaven!
Then also in the summer months there would be a family member having a barbecue. We would have thick British sausages, freezer bought burgers, hot dogs and loads of other things.
But that was about as good as the burgers got. I just didn’t know any different. A trip to Hard Rock Café in 2012 and then a trip to the US six months later soon changed my mind. I realised that burgers that have a little effort put into them, can be so truly amazing.
While we were in America we experienced some delicious burgers. We went to a 50’s style diner, we had big fat burgers at Planet Hollywood (the burger was amazing but the service was terrible) and my late uncle introduced me to Wendys. This was five years ago (we were there exactly 5 years ago to the date this was published). Even now Dominic still mentions that he wishes there was a Wendys in Portugal.
Though maybe a good thing, as we would only get fatter!
But it was also around the same time that we got our first Airfryer. We soon realised that we could make the most amazing homemade burgers that would rival a good burger diner and that we could make them without fat. In other words eat these burgers and they will help you lose weight!!!
Syn Free Burgers



You’re probably wondering how they are Syn Free as after all burgers can’t possibly be Syn Free can they? Well yes they can and they are ?
Featuring cheese and bread from your healthy allowances, absolutely no oil added and then crisped up in the Airfryer.
It works out at 1 healthy extra A for the cheese and then 1 healthy extra B for the bread. Easy to remember and perfect for if you want to save your Syns.

Welcome to the latest Podcast here at Food Blogging FM and today is all about a very simple look at food blogging and what you need to be doing in order to turn your zero traffic into a lot of traffic.
If you want to reach 1000 page views a day, 2,000 page views or even 10,000 page views a day then this is how to make it happen.
This is our own method for the success of Recipe This and we have used it to go from zero to a million page views and it works perfectly!
This involves a lot of rinse and repeat for each and every new recipe that you produce or any other post you put out on your blog.
None of it is rocket science and none of it is difficult. I find it is more of a case of people wanting to sell you software or programmes that make it seem like you can’t achieve decent traffic without it, or that you need to pay for an expensive Pinterest training programme when you really don’t.
Just follow these as your 3 step plan, like rules of your food blog and you will hit the high traffic levels before you know it.
Stage 1 = The Content
No matter what people tell you content will always be king and traffic will be queen. You have to have the amazing content in order for you to build traffic through to your content. You have to keep your readers engaged so that they will share your content and join your mailing list.
The idea is that every piece of content is your best, is of excellent quality and if you were the reader you would love it and return for more.
Next on the agenda is to see what your readers already like and give them more of the same. We are all in different micro niches so you have to ask yourself what you would be looking for if you were them and give them more of the same.
Take me for example and the content at RecipeThis.com.

My blog is already 14 months old. I started it on the 15th of November 2015 with a selection of back dated blog posts so that it didn’t look bare and so that I could start sharing my food experiences with my readers. That was the start and it is hard to believe that we have been at it for 14 months as it feels like it has been a lot longer than that.
But we have loved it and the best thing about our food blog is connecting with our readers and growing a business from scratch.
If we had not learnt during the last 14 months who our audience was and what they wanted we wouldn’t have grown to more than 140,000 social shares during that time. We wouldn’t have a regular reader base and we wouldn’t be making money from our blog.
We have done all this over the last year and a bit by lots of market research and lots of content calendars planning exactly what we were going to publish and why that content would be important to our readers.
Along with this we have spent time and effort on making sure this is content that we like making ourselves and is not just for the sake of making money or traffic growth. What we wanted to share in this food blogging Podcast is the minimum steps that we should ...]]>

My blog is just over a year old. In that time I have an average of 350 shares for every recipe that I have published to my blog. Some have been better than that some have been worse. It is thanks to all this social sharing that I have excellent SEO results with SEO being the leader in the traffic that comes through to my site.
But if you want to safeguard 500 social shares to your next blog post there is nothing better than doing a round up. In case you’re wondering what a round up actually is, then it is those blog posts you see such as “top 10 chicken recipes” that feature recipe images and links to other people’s blogs.
People do them in the hope that the people featured will go on and share the content via their own social media channels and that it might just go viral and get them a lot of shares.
But I personally find that they can be rather time consuming and like them to be good quality content and this has meant that I have not got that many of them out.
But looking at the ones I have done I have achieved the following results:

Air fryers have actually got so popular in 2016 that even Paula Deen and Gordon Ramsay have started getting excited about them. Yet a lot of us out there still don’t own one and still make their trusted French Fries in the deep fat fryer.
With an air fryer it is a great diet aid. Instead of having a deep fat fryer with 2 litres of unhealthy oil in it you have the Air fryer that like it says cooks with oil instead. This means for the average portion of fries you will use about a tablespoon of olive oil instead.
This means that from a calorie point of view your French Fries have less calories than a jacket potato with baked beans. For those of you that are on a diet it can mean that you could lose weight by eating delicious homemade fries.
I personally hassled and nagged my husband into buying me one until he eventually agreed after I gave him a review of it in a diet magazine. He was amazed by the idea of it and a week later we bought our first Air Fryer from our local electrical store. But this is Portugal which means we pay a lot more for electricals and with the air fryer being so new and not having any competition it meant that we paid more for our Air Fryer than we had for any other small...]]> Recipe This clean 12:33 Food Blogging FM 018: 101 Ways To Promote Your Next Recipe On Your Food Blog https://www.recipethis.com/food-blogging-fm-018-101-ways-to-promote-your-next-recipe-on-your-food-blog/ Wed, 16 Nov 2016 07:11:15 +0000 https://recipethis.com/?p=3355 https://www.recipethis.com/food-blogging-fm-018-101-ways-to-promote-your-next-recipe-on-your-food-blog/#respond https://www.recipethis.com/food-blogging-fm-018-101-ways-to-promote-your-next-recipe-on-your-food-blog/feed/ 0 <p>Welcome to our latest food blogging Podcast and here we are with Food Blogging FM 018.

* The Cook N Home Roaster

For me Christmas would never be the same without the turkey roast dinner. I have had turkey at Christmas for many years (well apart from my teenage vegetarian phase) and we introduced Thanksgiving into our lives about 6 years ago and it was only right that the turkey would join us too.
The funny thing is away from Thanksgiving and Christmas I rarely have any turkey a all. That is because living here in Portugal it is not a common meat to eat. The traditional food will always be the pork followed by the chicken and then after this people eat a lot of fish. This means that turkey will be overlooked and you only ever see it being sold in the supermarkets over Christmas and then you have to really go looking for it the rest of the year.
It doesn’t mean we don’t love turkey because we do, but we save it for these two times of the year when it feels like that extra special treat.
But when it comes to turkey people are often overwhelmed by it. Is it cooked right, will it taste dry, will it be flavoursome enough, will people like it and the list goes on and on. We don’t react in the same way when it comes to other meat and my reasoning there is that Christmas turkey is such a big deal and with it having such a centre stage then it needs to be absolutely perfect!
Plus I also find that with a turkey due to its weight we are spending quite a lot of money on it and then have lots of leftover meals to get out of it, so if it doesn’t live up to what is expected out of it, then it will leave us really disappointed.
This is when Dominic & I come into the conversation to help you out a little with your roast turkey. Many of you know this already that read our blog and listen to our Podcasts, but for those of you that don’t Dominic used to be a chef and his speciality was working as a carvery chef in charge of cooking the best ever roast dinners for locals. They were brilliant and when he left that line of work behind, I was still lucky enough to enjoy Dominic’s roast turkey but this time he was just making it for me!

Today I wanted to talk to you about going Paleo. I remember when I first discussed it with my mum (who I may add has spent most of her life attached to processed foods style diets) and she asked if it was the raw foods diet and when I said it wasn’t she assumed it was a modern version of the Atkins diet.
I tried explaining the rules to her of going Paleo and she still didn’t get it and in the end I ended up giving up.
Though the compliments of how much weight I had lost and how healthy I looked helped me get over my frustrations!
But the thing is most people just don’t get it. They don’t get what Paleo means, what it can do to their health and how just because you are following Paleo doesn’t mean that you are looking for weight loss.
A lot of the time it is just about re-conditioning your body and eating the food that we should all eat if we are not kidnapped by the powerful adverts that we often watch on the TV from the brands that want us to eat their processed foods.
For us though we changed one bit at a time. We didn’t go from eating lots of canned and frozen produce to suddenly cooking fresh everyday. It was a gentle progression. Having said that we still have a soft spot for a few non-Paleo foods and for this reason we stick to a 75% Paleo way of life. This means that 75% of our plates are full to bursting with Paleo foods and shows that you can make a huge difference with just small changes.
Health experts have said that just by reducing our processed foods in our diet that we can make a huge impact on our lives.
So listen away (or read away if you are accessing the transcript or the blog post) while I explain to you all about Paleo and why we should all follow the Paleo way of life!
The Ultimate Guide To Going Paleo

If you are reading this you will be able to see the infographic above. If not you can access it at recipethis.com/gopaleoinfographic.
The starting point of Paleo is that it bans (or asks you to limit) the consumption of certain foods. These include:

* Processed Foods
* Grains
* Beans, Peas & Pulses
* Refined Oils
* Soy

Today I wanted to talk to you about sponsored opportunities and making a good living from your food blog. This is a very big part of running a food blog or a blog in any niche for that matter and is something that you should be thinking about from day 1.
I used to read in the past that food blogs should not try to monetise their food blogs until they hit 100,000 page views. Well I have never heard anything so crazy in my life as when you hit this level should be the time when your income has really taken off, not that it should start at that level.
I also know of two very popular food blogs that have been around for 6 years and didn’t actually monetise at all until they had passed the 250,000 monthly page views threshold. I cry for them when I think of when they could have started and how far they could have gone by that point.
So whether you are just starting out or have an older blog that has got traffic but you have not quite figured out how to monetise it then this is for you. It is also a Podcast based on our own case studies of what has happened to us as we have gone from zero traffic to 60,000 page views a month.
So get comfy and let’s dive straight in!
Understanding Sponsored Opportunities
First things first let’s think of this from an earnings point of view. If you read income reports (or write your own like we do) then you’ll know that unless they do a lot of recipe development work for other bloggers that the bulk of their income will be sponsorships.
Advertising networks are of course great and we have been with Adsense for 10 years now so we appreciate what they are all about and how they bring us regular money. But the sponsored reviews, recipes, social media is what will make you the most.
The worst thing for us though is we live in Portugal, we have a good US, UK & Australian readership base and many American companies will not touch you if you don’t have a US address with a US Amazon Prime account. It can make it very difficult and frustrating ...]]>

Today I wanted to talk to you about the Tailwind tribes. Last month we talked about Tailwind and how important it is for your Pinterest promotional plans. But the hot topic on every food bloggers mind at the moment is Tailwind Tribes and what they can do for them.
It reminds me a bit of when Twitter first became popular. You had this new social media tool that was perfect for social media and for building up your brand but nobody really knew for sure what to do with it.
I remember when I said I was joining Twitter and someone said to me “you do know you have to tell people when you go to the toilet?”. And that you don’t have to do that when you’re on MySpace. Clearly it was 2008 and things have changed a lot since then and people have a much better understanding of what social media is.
But when you first discover the tribes on Tailwind it can be really scary because they are so new that hardly anyone is talking about them at all.
The Tailwind Tribes are free to use and are still in beta and it is so much fun to get involved in something that is in its early stages. But gaining an understanding is tough and I must admit it took me about 2 weeks to get my head around them and fully understand what they were about and how they could help my food blogging site. Therefore with them being free you could get to grips with the tribes before you look into Pinterest group pinning to see what kind of traffic it can bring you.
So let’s get started!
The Tailwind Tribes
First things first you will need a Tailwind account to get involved with the tribes and you can get yours for free by clicking here. No obligation to sign up and the Tribes offer you a fantastic way to get your name out there and to kickstart your Pinterest traffic machine.

Today I wanted to talk to you about using knives in the kitchen and how to make the best use of your knives. I remember when I was growing up because there was not that much cooking going on there really wasn’t that many knives available.
I remember one for peeling the vegetables with, one for chopping up the cheese and I don’t really remember any beyond that. There was also this weird looking electrical one that was very 80’s and was for carving the roast dinner meat at the table.
Everyone had the electric carving knife and it was for the man to show off his knife skills to the guests while everyone was sat around the dinner table on a Sunday afternoon.
I never used the electric one but always loved the other two. There was no peeler around and I was the worst potato peeler with a knife that you had ever seen. It was a case of doing a giant potato and peeling it ready for chips and losing ½ the potato as I did it. I would get shouted at for that and clearly I was never allowed near the carrots! It actually feels weird saying that and that there was a life before the trusted peeler!
With the cheese knife I absolutely loved that. It was perfect for chopping cheese or bread with and even better for chopping up bacon.

But when I look back there was never any thought to knife safety and I don’t recall anyone (other than a chef) ever owning a knife sharpener. Eventually the knife died and it would go in the bin and another one would be bought.
But now we are in the modern world and what was in the kitchen in the 1980s is so different as to what you have now. We now have knife sharpeners, different coloured chopping boards, huge knife ranges, good quality knife holders and so much more. It makes cooking so much easier and nowadays there is no excuse for chopping your fingers with the knife. Not that we will ever totally stop this as I think we all get side tracked in the kitchen every now and again.
I have cut myself about twice in the last three years so I must be improving!
The Ultimate Knives Guide

There are so many knives out there that is hard to know what you need and what is just a waste of your money.]]>

Today I wanted to talk to you about Tailwind. If you’re not familiar with Tailwind then put in simple terms it is a scheduler for Pinterest. Here at RecipeThis.com we have tried other schedulers but not one of them has matched up to this one.
We are also the frugal type of food bloggers so we don’t spend money on our food blog unless we have to. So for us to spend just over $100 a year for something it has to give us something special.
Well most people are on Pinterest for traffic and to use it to grow their social media activity and it has certainly done that for us.
Here is our Pinterest traffic the day we started on Tailwind:

1685 sessions was what we had for the last 30 days. This had become the norm and for a food blog that was just six months old we were relatively happy with this result. However we were still looking at our former site that got a lot of traffic from Pinterest and wish we could have the same success.
But  Pinterest has changed a lot since then and you could just post your recipes in 2013 and not have to make any effort. But with more and more people using it and promoted pins you have to go that extra mile.
So we started on Tailwind and this was our first full month on Tailwind:

3672 sessions was what we have had in the last month in comparison. This means that we have more than doubled our traffic. We have also added approximately one thousand new followers to our Pinterest account too.
Normally to have that kind of growth you would need one of your updates to go viral but thanks to Pinterest Groups and incorporating it into Tailwind you can achieve this on your own. So let me explain how:

Welcome to our fourteenth Podcast at Recipe This and welcome to our latest cooking tips Podcast.
As I write this we are back at home having had a lovely two weeks in Spain. We ate out a lot enjoying lots of Spanish tapas, great restaurants, great days out and a four star hotel with three swimming pools. We also drove there and back from our house in Portugal and even after all these costs we still spent half the price of what we would have done if we had been on a package holiday in a three star hotel.
It actually rather amazed us in the savings that could be made on a holiday if you shopped around.
We had an amazing time and it was a great family holiday for the four of us.
But it did give us a reality check about the cost of package holidays and how if you are frugal you can go on holiday and save a small fortune. That money can then be spent on other things instead of being wasted on a holiday.
 Now we plan to do the same thing again next year and we want to share with you in the CTFM 014 how we did it.
This Podcast will be split into the following main areas:

* Introduction – I will be sharing with you about mistakes I made on other holidays and how you can save money just by following a few basics.
* Eating Out On Holiday – I will show you how to have the best ever meals out as a family without it breaking the bank. Can you believe I had delicious tapas for just 60 cent?
* Frugal Holiday Breakdown – Discover how much money we spent on our holiday and how to have a holiday full of delicious great food without it breaking the bank.
