Serrano Ham Wrapped Mozzarella Hake!

I was on my own in the apartment this week while my lovely other half worked down the country. I had a fridge full of healthy food but I was generally just throwing my dinners together depending on what I was in the mood for and what was in the fridge. So last Tuesday I had some Hake and some leftover mozzarella that had to be used up so I decided to take a bit of a chance and it turned out delicious.

Chocolate Chip & Oatmeal Cookies

Every couple of months I sort through my recent Weight Watchers and keep any recipes that I think I'll try for my recipe folders. This was a recipe I found in I think this years Easter edition and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to try it. I love to bake but really don't do it enough because of the temptation of having fresh baked calorific goodies around. So I really love when I discover a WW friendly treat to try.

Courgette & Feta Fritatta

I've been in need of some new lunch ideas for a long time now. My bagel thin sandwiches and soups, while lovely, were starting to get a bit repetitive. I usually spend Sunday evenings at my parents house so don't usually have the time to do much prep for the week ahead, but this week since they were away I had a rare Sunday at home. I decided to make the most of it and after spending the morning sorting through my recipe files I spent the afternoon in the kitchen. One of the things I made was this gorgeous frittata for my lunches for the week.

What Am I Doing??

Having a dance at EP, at least I got some exercise!

Last weekend was Electric Picnic and so I knew I was taking  a few days off tracking. It was a brilliant weekend, but I absolutely went overboard on the food and drink, starting from when we arrived right up to the takeaway on the Monday after getting home. Last time I went to EP was in 2008 and leaving I was the lightest I'd ever been (10 stone 1lb) and I remember before I left having all the best intentions of eating healthy. I loaded my bags up with healthy fruits and veg snacks, low pp crisps and cereal bars and light beer. Of course all that meant was extra weight being carried in AND out of the festival - I ate none of it. I was so disheartened when I came home that I gave up on Weight Watchers and regained a stone and a half before rejoining again.

Mouthwatering Meatballs!

I love meatballs and my absolute favourite meatball recipe is my Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs, but every now and then you want something a bit different.... or you forgot to get the mozzarella! Anyway I have been toying around with my recipe for a little while and I have finally perfected the mix of flavours to make a really special meatball.
