BEEF AND SOBA NOODLE SALAD

This beef and soba noodle salad features caramelised cashews for extra deliciousness! A simple meal that’s full of interesting flavours. This recipe was inspired by a meal I had at The Powderkeg in Ohakune recently. It was also the weekend where I tried snowboarding for the first time. Fortunately all the good food we ate more than made up for […]

CHICKEN TRAY BAKE

This chicken tray bake is so simple. Throw it together, pop it in the oven, then enjoy some free time to do something else while it cooks. Very light on dishes too! This meal might be simple but it’s definitely not lacking in flavour. A great midweek family dinner. If you love chicken roasted in the oven, try this Mediterranean […]

Dish of lasagne ready to serve with garlic bread.

MENU 72

First on the menu is easy Indian spiced fish. Delicately spiced rather than hot and spicy, and perfect served with Indian-style fried rice. Next up is a warm chicken salad. It has maximum flavour from just a handful of ingredients. Finish the week with a true classic - lasagne. Lentils stretch the mince further and taste just as good!

LASAGNE

Lasagne is such a good crowd pleaser, and great for making in advance. I’ve added lentils to mine to stretch the mince further – I reckon it tastes just as good! This recipe does take a little over an hour from start to finish, but it’s well worth the effort! You’ll also have plenty of time while it cooks to […]

It really is delicious! This is another recipe inspired by a cafe lunch. I was unsure about ordering it but so glad that I did! The combination […]

INDIAN SPICED FISH

This Indian spiced fish manages to be delicately spiced yet full of flavour at the same time. Delicious served with Indian-style fried rice and a generous dollop of yoghurt. I always find seafood recipes a little harder to come up with, so when mum suggested I give Indian spiced fish a go I jumped on the idea! I was pleasantly […]
