Three Cheese Muffins

These Three Cheese Muffins came about when I was looking for something to serve with Leek and Potato Soup for lunch, sometimes you just don't fancy bread. I had some odds and ends of cheese in the fridge so figured I would combine them and make some muffins to dunk into our soup.
You can use whatever combination of cheese you fancy(or have left in the fridge), I used a mixture of Red Leicester, Cheddar and Mozzarella in ours, Not set amount of each, just what we had. I did have Alex pinching bits of cheese while we baked so I may have ended up with a little less in ours! The recipe made 10 mid size muffins.
Three cheese muffins

250g plain flour
200g cheese, grated
1 tsp mixed herbs
240ml milk
2 eggs, beaten
6 tbsp oil
Pop your flour, baking powder, mixed herbs and most of the cheese into a large bowl. Add the milk, eggs and oil and combine the ingredients untill a lumpy batter is formed. Spoon the batter into a muffin tray, sprinkle over the leftover cheese and bake for 18-20 minutes until golden.

Easy Creamy Tuna Pasta

We all like those meals that can be thrown together in a few minutes with minimal preparation. This Easy Creamy Tuna Pasta is one of those meals.
I'll be honest this is so simple, that I feel a bit guilty about calling it a recipe but a recipe it is and one so easy that anyone can make it. Pasta is a staple in our house, we usually have it twice a week and sometimes more if we have it at lunch time too so I am always trying new ways to eat it.

Cook pasta in a large pan and drain. Pop the pasta back into the pan and add the cream, cheese and tuna. Warm over a low heat while stirring until the cheese has melted. Serve
Told you it was easy! Of course you can add sweetcorn or anything else you fancy but this is the simple meal.
