The Deep Hull - Review

We were recently invited to visit The Deep in Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire. We do not live far from  Hull so we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to have a day out as a family.

The Deep is one of the worlds most spectacular and deepest aquariums in the world. After opening in 2002 it has attracted over 4,000,000 visitors. It is not only an award winning attraction but is also the countries most successful millennium project!

If you do not know Hull, The Deep is really easy to find as it is clearly sign posted all the way from the Humber Bridge. We visited on a Saturday and when we arrived the car park was very busy. We also did not realise that the car park would be pay and display but thankfully we had some change for the ticket. So if you do visit go prepared!

When we entered the building we were greeted by the big welcome sign and beautiful dolphin statues hanging from the ceiling.

Summer Vegetables, Chicken and Rice Dish

Regular readers will know that I love creating new meals with leftovers!

That is how this meal came along. I had half a chicken left after a Sunday roast. I normally end up cooking a Leftover Curry but as we are wanting to increase our vegetable intake I wanted to create a healthier leftovers meal.

I have combined the leftover chicken with plenty of vegetables and brown rice.

This is what I did...

Full of Veg Crustless Quiche - Family Favourites

Now that the hot weather and summer has arrived we long for lighter meals. Quiche is great for summer but as we all know pastry is not great for us and contains a lot of fat. But you can still enjoy quiche without the pastry! 

This week for my Family Favourites recipe I thought I would share my crustless quiche recipe. This is a great meal to cook if you need to use some eggs up. Now that we have three chickens we have an abundance of eggs so this really is a great meal! It is also great of you grow your own vegetables!

Not only is this an easy summer meal to make but is also full of vegetables and goodness.

This is what I did...

Sweetpea Pantry Review

Today I am sharing a delicious company, the Sweetpea Pantry.


Sweetpea Pantry have created some amazing baking kits. I am not usually a fan of cake and bake mixes however I did get really excited about Sweetpea Pantry mixes. You may be wondering what makes these mixes different. Sweetpea Pantry are not your regular mixes, they are 100% natural ingredients and contain superfoods!

Yes superfoods for kids!

Since we changed our diets we have been adding a lot of superfoods to our diets and I have been looking for ways to incorporate the goodness into meals and bakes that the children will also like. Sweetpea Pantry keep it simple, they only use 100% natural ingredients, cut down refined sugar and get as much goodness into each pack as possible.
