The Best Butternut Squash Recipe

I like to try all the different vegetables on offer and this week I had an organic box delivery which had a great Butternut Squash nestled inside.

I wanted to make the most of what I could do with it so I have devised the best butternut squash supper recipe I can imagine which is great for all the family.

Luckily my boys and OH love their food and will try all the different dishes that I come up with. My eldest son loves sweet potatoes and I think that the butternut squash looks very similar. They have had it before but not like this, being made the star of the show!

Seriously Tasty Cheese Scone Recipe

When I was a young girl and staying with my nan on the weekends she would often bake with me. I remember the feel of the oversized apron tied around my waist, folded in the middle so that it wouldn’t trip me up.

One of the staple things we would bake together was scones; plain, fruit or cheese, all these would be made with her big hands over my little ones.

So, when I was looking for a tasty bake to make with my boys then cheese scones were a favourite choice.

The recipe and method are straightforward and ideas for moulding together quickly for a warm and wholesome savory treat.

Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe

This vegan chocolate cake recipe is one to keep. I came across the idea when I realised there were many more people that I know who are either vegan or who are removing some areas of food from their diet. There are so many ways in which we can tweak our favourite recipes to meet our own requirements.

With my vegan chocolate cake it does not contain any eggs or butter. The standard sugar has been replaced with Natvia sweetener – Natvia is made from the stevia plant and is completely natural – and the oil is vegetable oil.

This is a cake that is so versatile. It’s perfect with a hot coffee, if you fancy a summer party then adding fresh fruit will put the sunshine feeling into the day, or if it’s luxury you are after then vegan hazelnut frosting is something that will top this off a treat!

Easy Aubergine Bake Recipe

This Easy Aubergine Bake Recipe is not only super delicious but super easy to make. I find layering up bakes relaxing and what’s great is that you can get this ready in advance and then pop it in the oven when you are nearly ready to have your meal. It only takes 40 minutes in the oven.

What you will need is:

1 garlic clove

5 mushrooms

2 small or 1 large aubergine

1 ball of mozzarella cheese

8 pasta sheets

1 can tinned tomatoes or passata

A couple of sprigs of basil

Grated cheddar cheese

Easy Aubergine Bake Recipe

Crush the garlic clove and mix with the tinned tomatoes. Spread this as the first layer across your oven dish. Then place the pasta sheets, trying to close all the gaps as good as possible.

Tear the mozarella into chunks and place over the pasta sheets.

Crush the garlic, cut the mushrooms and aubergines and unwrap your mozzarella. Place all of these in individual bowls and then relax and enjoy building up this tasty bake.
