Burns Night Haggis Balls | The World of Suzy Homemaker - @SuzyHomemakerUK

Monday is Burns' Night and in honour of the occasion, I'm sharing with you my homemade Haggis Balls recipe.

Burns' Night is a celebration of all things Scottish and a tribute to Scots poet Robert (or Rabbie) Burns, who was born on 25 January 1759. Celebrations include a Burns' Night supper which centres around the haggis, a traditional Scottish dish to which Robert Burns dedicated an ode (poem).

Beloved and I only discovered haggis a few years ago, having been introduced to it by the Scots/English Besties, but it immediately made the favourites list. We've cooked it several ways - in its traditional casing in the slow cooker as well as from the tin, where a fried slice is delicious either with a cooked breakfast or in sandwiches.

The only question was why it took us so long to try it!

Salmon Teriyaki and Wild Rice Recipe from The World of Suzy Homemaker | | @SuzyHomemakerUK

Do you Yo?

Yo! As in Sushi I mean, not throwing around the stringed toy variety (although that's a lot of fun, too).

We're rather partial to Yo! Sushi and this throw-it-together recipe was inspired by Beloved's hunt-the-2nd-helping love of Yo's Chicken Teriyaki.

Never fear, there's no raw fish here. Just a delicious salmon and rice recipe you're sure to love.

Finger lickin' spicy barbecue chicken | The World of Suzy Homemaker @SuzyHomemakerUK

It's July and the sun is shining. That can mean only one thing...

It's Barbecue season! Whoop! Yay for al fresco dining!! (Even though Beloved hates it.)

If you're planning a barbie this weekend, I have the perfect recipe for you. More aptly named "Nicki's Kickin' Chicken" (try saying THAT after a few margaritas!), I shamelessly stole this dish from my friend Nicola who served it during a girlie get-together for the final of Ultimate Big Brother #UBB.

Don't judge me.

How to cook perfect, gorgeously fluffy boiled rice… EVERY TIME! by The World of Suzy Homemaker

When you boil rice, does it stick to the saucepan, or worse - turn out looking disturbingly like a bucket of stodgy wallpaper paste?

If so, you've come to the right blog post!

For years, I relied on packet rice, because I just couldn't trust myself to cook the loose stuff properly. Yep, I'm not too proud to admit that I've ruined many a good saucepan in my quest for the fluffy grain. Then along came Bev, who taught me this awesome and totally fail-safe method for cooking perfect boiled rice… 

EVERY time!

Magnolia Tree |

Ahhh... spring. Don't you just love this time of year?

Longer days, lighter evenings, warmer weather, new leaf, baby baaaa lambs...

But do you know what I love most?

Hands-down, my absolute favourite thing about spring, THE thing I look forward to most every year, is the splendour that is the magnolia.
