Always keen to try new ways to jazz up banana pancakes, I thought the peanut butter and chocolate combo would work a treat and I have to say, I was definitely right. I love these little pancakes as they feel so indulgent and yet they are only 1sp per portion. So whether you are making these for pancake day, as breakfast or for a snack they will be sure to hit the spot!
Having had half a packet of blinis left to use, I thought I would throw together another quick and easy canape recipe for over the festive period. This one is just as easy as the last!! Beetroot and goat’s cheese are a classic pairing and, added to a little bit of beetroot houmous, they make a lovely bite sized treat (they lasted less than an hour in my house!).
Having rejoined classes and now going along on a weekly basis, I’m always interested to see what the topic for discussion will be on the night. In my class in last week of November we spent some time discussing ways in which to tackle to Christmas season, and in particular, parties full of the foods we know won’t get us to where we want to be.
We often treat ourselves to a nice rump steak if we go for a big Aldi shop (they are such good value) and so I’m always looking at new, quick and easy sauces I can whip together to add to the finished dish.
The sauce was inspired by a dressing I had on a steak salad when visiting the ‘big smoke’. I got home and the next day set to work with my blender trying to work out what was in the dressing and how I could adapt it for us Weight Watchers.
Meatballs are one of my favourite go to quick and easy dinners as they take hardly any preparation and can be ready in under 15 minutes. These meatballs in particular are delicious with my other favourite at the moment, 0sp Butternut Squash Noodles, or Boodles as Sainsbury’s like to call them. They made for a lovely filling dish but allow you to keep the smart points for the whole meal nice and low.
Following on with my obsession with all things Korean, I created this recipe after a visit to our local food market where my hubbie indulged in a Korean Fried Chicken Burger. Keen to make my own healthier version, I ditched the deep frying and went for a much healthier griddle instead.
I love a good fish dish so I am always thinking of different ways to combine a light and low smart points fish dish with something that will fill up my hungry hubbie. This week, having had some sweet potatoes left to use up, I thought I would get some mash on the go. This mash is inspired by my lovely Loaded Sweet Potato Skins from a while back, with many of my favourite flavours rearing their heads once again, this time in mash form.
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.

Now as most of you probably know by now, I love food and love discovering new additions to my kitchen so when Weight Watchers set me a new food challenge recently, I was excited to get stuck in and give it a go.
The question…. would I rather spend a Friday evening cooking a Weight Watchers Chicken Jambalaya from scratch or, would I rather have one of the new Limited Edition Weight Watchers ready meals, and, in the time I would have spent cooking, have a bath, chill out and maybe pop on a face mask instead.
I was originally going to post this new recipe a little later in the year but after seeing how well my last Korean recipe went down, and knowing a few of you have already bought the gochujung paste, I thought I would bring this recipe forward a little so you could use it up. Well that and it tastes INCREDIBLE so I was too excited to wait to share it with you.
