    1 day ago by traceysblog My take on the  @slimmingworld  cauliflower macaroni and cheese from the Comfort Collection Recipe Book. I didn't add butternut squash but added smoked bacon, peas, peppers & garlic. I also added less Cajun spice and mustard powder as my son has zero tolerance for any kind of spice. Oh and I substituted the yoghurt for cottage cheese. Really lovely and nearly nicer cold Packed with speed, like there's a whole bag of frozen cauliflower in there. Really comforting.

    4 days ago by traceysblog Fairly photograph but this was a beauty. Mushrooms, baby corn, mange tout and bok choy stir fried in Chinese 5 spice, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Then add the fish (frozen Hake from  @tescoirl  which I let defrost for 3 hours or so) and pop a lid on the pan reducing the heat to low. Let the fish poach then. Do not overcook. Literally 5 mins with the lid on. In another pot add some Soba Noodles (they're buckwheat based. Again from  @tescoirl  and they were cheap as chips and looked fancy ) to a pot of boiling water.
