My Recipe Book Wish List: Spring 2017

If you read my post all about how I meal plan, you’ll have seen a sneak peak of my recipe book collection. It may look like it’s getting out of control but I’m happy with how it’s coming along. Yes, it isn’t complete yet. My collection currently houses around 50 books from a variety of authors, but I want to expand it! A lot of sad little secrets about me are revealed in this post so keep an eye out to learn all about me (you’ll just realise how dull my life is).

My Go-To Baked Cheesecake Recipe

I’m not a dessert person. Don’t get me wrong, I love to eat them but I’m just not very good at making them. However, this is my go to recipe when I have to make a dessert (aka when my dad volunteers me to make one for Easter Sunday – hence the mini eggs on top). This is a baked cheesecake is adapted from the Jamie Oliver Baked Cheesecake recipe, and I’ve made it so many times now that I know it’s always a crowd pleaser.

The Easiest Bread Roll Recipe

If I’m having a bad day, all I want to eat are carbs. Pasta, potatoes and bread are pretty much my nutritional life. When I have bad days, I want to bake. When I’m stressed, I want to punch things. Making bread basically puts all of these things into one afternoon! This recipe doesn’t need anything fancy – everything can be picked up at your local supermarket and all you need are some scales, a bowl and your hands!

Vegan Bean Burger Recipe

I’ve actually really enjoyed compiling my last two recipes on here – even more than I thought I would. So today I’m sharing a vegan recipe for you. I’m trying to be a little more sustainable and reduce the amount of animal products I’m eating so this seemed like the perfect recipe for me to do this. This recipe makes enough for four burgers which was two servings for me. They’re suitable for freezing (just defrost before cooking) and can be baked, grilled or fried. This batch were oven baked as I was cooking Jacket Potatoes to go with them and I’m trying to be a little healthier.

Lasagne Recipe

If I could only eat one type of food for the rest of my life, it would be a toss up between Italian and Mexican (or a traditional English roast). My boyfriend feels similarly, and since we were both having a huge lasagne craving, I thought I’d roll up my sleeves and make one from scratch for the first time in about 7 years. I always make bolognese but I never quite stretch to lasagne – probably because I’m terrible and making cheese sauce. However, it was Sunday and we needed a treat. So here is my “make it up as I go along” lasagne (I had to write the ingredients as I went through as I honestly have no idea what I throw in).
