Much to my family’s disappointment, I’m just not a fan of Shepherd’s or Cottage Pie. Nothing to do with the taste or flavour, I just can’t handle the texture of mince with mashed potato for some reason! Keep to make a nice, wintery and warming meal this weekend, I decided to put a bit of a twist on the regular Cottage pie by replacing the traditional beef mince with some chunky beef stewing steak and turning the whole thing into more of a Steak and Ale pie vibe. The addition of the stilton to the mash is wonderful, it adds a lovely tang to what is a smooth and comforting pie topper. If you aren’t keen on blue cheese, simply leave this out. If you do, the points are 10sp per portion.
A good tuna steak is a real treat but not something we often eat in the house so this week, after having a real craving for it, I decided to pull together a new recipe which used this lovely fish with a few other fresh tasting flavours.

I’ve had these lovely Chinese steamed buns so many times when I’ve eaten out and I’ve often wondered if I could make them Weight Watchers friendly. After craving them again this week I decided to give it a go and the result was a great success. My recipe below makes 12 buns which are 5sp each so you could either have 2 or 3 as a meal or serve as a starter and have 1 or 2 per person.
When asking what recipes you would like to see me create, Mac and Cheese is without fail, always the most requested so I thought it was about time I got around to creating a healthier version of it.
Lots of people that I speak to often say they love to eat mussels when they go out but are a bit nervous to make them themselves. I would have said the same until I gave it a go for the first time and now they are a regular in our house.
Mussels really are one of my favourite, quick go to meals when I am looking for something both cheap and easy and low in points. You get a huge portion for only 5pp so you can add to it as you please. I’ve cooked some spaghetti and stirred it through the sauce at the last minute and then served the mussels on top or I’ve just served it with a warm WW petite pan.
