Ifits Spicy Chicken & Chickpea Stew

Well, it’s been all change at Tidy Towers (or rather Tidy Towers has relocated three times) over the last year and half, and I’m kind of ashamed to discover that I only managed four recipes in 2016!

Now that I’m settled, let’s put that to rights with this proper winter warmer! It’s a true Ifits – I wanted to knock together something that was healthy, tasty, warming, and filling, so had a look in the cupboards and rustled up this beauty.

Ifits Crustless Quickie Quiche

IMGP3503

This is a real quickie this week! The plan was to blog something more substantial… but I had four eggs that needed to be used before shopping arrived and I figured an Ifits was overdue anyway!

This one is perhaps the strangest combination I’ve flung together…. but it worked in the main! Feel free to swap any ingredients you like (as with all Ifits recipes) and as ever, I’ve suggested some tweaks of my own!

Happy Birthday, TidyMunch!

Yay, we’re a year old! And what birthday would be complete without cake?! Well, technically, it’s a pudding, not a cake. And I’ve taken liberties with the title. It’s a Scrumptious Sticky Toffee Pudding, and the recipe is courtesy of Jamie Oliver in his Comfort Food book (with a small tweak from Nell).

It was my birthday a few weeks ago, so we made this for the occasion – but I decided to hold back blogging it until TidyMunch’s birthday!

I’ve never baked anything that was so easy, yet so rewarding… you owe it to yourself, your friends, family, and various other loved ones, to make this immediately. Go!

Spicy Baked Eggs with Tomato & Bacon Sauce

IMGP3086

I found this simple little beauty in a book called Man up Your MealsIt’s one of those types of books that costs pennies (OK, pounds but very few of them) in those bargain books kinda stores, and doesn’t have the author’s name on the front. Given my well (self)documented large appetite, I’m sure you can figure out why it appealed to me.

There’s a wonderful, earthy-smokey flavour to this dish that’s very satisfying, but I couldn’t help but feel there was one (just one) thing missing. So I added cheese, and my life was complete.

It doesn’t look particularly appetising I have to admit (sweetcorn does that) but the taste more than makes up for it.

So what are you waiting for? Get your Cook on!
