Pancake Day is next week - hurrah! Our family has a long history with pancakes with varying levels of success. I initially tried making pancakes with E when she was quite small and I think disaster is the only way to describe it. You can read all about it over on my baking blog which has been dormant for few years now. I notice I titled the post Pancake Apocalpse which sums it up perfectly...
We hosted Boxing Day this year and to make life a little simpler I decided to prep and freeze a range of dishes in advance to minimise my time in the kitchen on the day and allow me to enjoy celebrating. With half my family being vegetarians I needed to make some yummy veggie dishes which didn’t involve mushrooms or peppers! I made this Lasagne exactly how I’d make traditional lasagne but substituted the mince beef for roasted butternut squash!
To reach your nutrition goals and enjoy plenty of healthy, delicious, and nutrient-rich meals on a daily basis, you have to regularly evaluate your shopping and food consumption habits. Do you hurry through the supermarket and pick up the first items you see? Do you always plan to cook a healthy dinner at home but end up ordering takeaway?

One of the wonderful elements of Autumn is the abundant squashes and pumpkins. Roasted to perfection these vegetables live and breathe warm, cosy nights wrapped up with furry slippers on. This Butternut Squash Hummus is the perfect accompaniment for Moroccan and Persian dishes or served as a starter or snack with fine crackers. For this recipe it is preferable to roast your squash for a deep, rich flavour.
