Hello everyone,

I have recently been creating my own gluten free recipes. One of them has been these yummy cookies and I have decided to create some clip top jars full of the mixture ready for my Etsy shop too. If you are interested, take a look over at:

Mediterranean Vegetable Lasagne

Hello everyone!

Today's recipe is for a Mediterranean Vegetable Lasagne. I've been trying to take a more careful approach to what I am eating at the moment - I have been doing a lot more resistance training at the gym and if I want to see results, I know that what I eat will play an important role! However, that is easier said than done when the only thing you want during the day at work is aaalll the cake - and the staff room generally offers this in ample supply!

This recipe creates 4 good-sized portions that come out at 300 calories each (35g carbs, 8g fat and 20g protein). 


- 300g Quorn mince
- 300g Mediterranean vegetable mix (frozen)
- 2 cartons of chopped tomatoes
- 100g lasagne sheets
- 40g cheddar cheese
- seasoning

1. On a medium heat, fry off the mince and vegetables for 7-8 minutes.
2. Add the chopped tomatoes and seasoning (I like to add salt, pepper, oregano and garlic granules).
3. Leave to simmer until all excess water cooks off.
4. In an oven-proof dish, layer the quorn mix with lasagne sheets.
5. Finish with a final layer of the quorn mix and top with the grated cheese.
6. Bake at 180c for 15-20 minutes until the cheese goes golden.

It has been a while...

Hello everyone!

It has certainly been a while, 4 months I think! I have completed my PGCE and now have my first NQT position which I am loving. I really wanted to focus on this for the past few months and didn't want blogging to feel like a chore where I had to rush posts to publish them for the sake of it. We are also moving house soon which is very exciting! However, I am now nicely settled into my new job and have recently been desperate to get back into blogging. So here I am!

I am looking forward to catching up on all I have missed - please send your links my way to have a browse :)

Please keep your eyes peeled for new recipes, days out etc ♡

Thanks for reading!
