I absolutely love spicy nuts. But they’re so expensive and full of rubbish that I decided to have a go at making my own. They’re amazing and I will never be buying the packet ones again!

In a bowl mix a packet of plain almonds with a squeeze of honey, a shake of chilli powder, a sprinkle of dried thyme, a grind of black pepper and little pinch of salt.

Place nuts on a lined baking tray and roast on 180 for 10 mins!


I’ve got a horrible cold. Last night I made my beef casserole and that cheered me up. Today I’m off work so wanted a yummy and healthy breakfast to try kick this snotty nose.

1) put 1 cup oats in a pan and pour over 1 cup semi skimmed milk.

2) stir on a medium heat for 5 mins or until thick/ at your desired consistency.

3) pour into a bowl and stir through 1 dessert spoon of vanilla yoghurt (I used alpro soya as a big pot was on offer!)

4) crush almonds on top and sprinkle over blueberries.

A very satisfying breakfast 🙂
