These Bounty Bites were invented one evening when I really fancied some chocolate, but I didn’t have any in the house and I was already in my pajamas so I couldn’t go to the shop! After a rummage through my kitchen cupboards I realised that I could easily make Bountys with the ingredients I had at hand. The Bounty is one of my favourite chocolate bars (a list which is fairly extensive, to be honest, but don’t let that put you off…). I love their soft, sweet coconut filling that’s packed inside a thick coating of good quality chocolate, be it the milk or dark variety.
The other day I was going through my previously posted recipes and it came to my attention that the website was sorely lacking ideas for side dishes, so I thought I’d write a post covering two of my favourite standby sides, citrus green beans and mustard mash. For all that I prefer to create recipes for whole dishes, sides are a really important part of a meal, but it can often be difficult to find ones which are suitable on the low FODMAP diet. However, these citrus green beans and mustard mash are really good options to have in your repertoire.
If you’re looking for a tasty snack to accompany a film you can’t get better than this chocolate, fruit and seed popcorn. A few Sundays ago when we were snowbound by the snowstorm named The Beast From The East (a ridiculous name, I know, but that’s literally what they named it) we settled down to watch a film we’d been planning to see for a long time.
I wouldn’t say that fish is one of my favourite foods exactly, but I do enjoy eating it on occasion because it makes a nice light change from eating meat. I made this fish pie one day when I was feeling cold and as if the winter had considerably overstayed its welcome.
