Back to Basics: Overnight Oats


Overnight Oats Quite some time ago, I started a Back to Basics section on here for foods which I am so used to making that I sometimes forget that others might not know where to start!

So simple but so delicious! Have them for breakfast, snack or dessert. You can add as many layers as you like (or that fit in your pot)! The spice I have used is cinnamon as this pairs so well with apple, but you could also used mixed spice, nutmeg or even ginger to suit your own tastes. It is important…

Oaty Bites! with Chocolate!


Oaty Bites! with Chocolate! Bites there were… several of them! 😛 I really can’t believe these disappeared so quickly, but I guess it’s just like eating a perfect bowl of porridge yes? Well it has almost all the same ingredients that my breakfast oats would have (okay, maybe not the chocolate), so that makes it similar …nutrition-wise at least! 🙂…

Fast Food with a difference! It’s fast & it’s cake-y!!!


Fast Food with a difference! It’s fast & it’s cake-y!!! So, I’m sitting in my kitchen thinking I need more ‘rest’ time after my very busy week last week! Rest = tea & biscuits (cookies) or coffee & cake right? Of course it does! 😀 I have tea – green tea, mint tea, earl grey tea, English Breakfast tea, flower tea…
