SPICED EASTER LOAF

Spiced Easter loaf filled with a cinnamon fruit swirl and served with deliciously moreish hot cross bun flavoured butter – yum! This is an exciting, easy twist on homemade hot cross buns. Perfect served warm from the oven or toasted, and even better turned into an indulgent French toast the next day. The hot cross bun flavoured butter really takes […]

CREAMY PUMPKIN PASTA

This vegetarian creamy pumpkin pasta is such good comfort food! Grab yourself a bowlful and get cozy on the couch. Do you usually avoid cooking with pumpkin because it’s such a pain to cut up?! I had a conversation with my sister recently where she admitted to this, and I used to be exactly the same. My top tip is […]

EGGPLANT, BACON AND HALOUMI SALAD

Don’t be fooled by the word ‘salad’ – this cheesy eggplant, bacon and haloumi salad is loaded with delicious ingredients and served with a creamy yoghurt dressing and warm garlic bread. Coating the eggplant slices in a mixture of egg and parmesan is quite a different way to cook eggplant (credit to mum for this one). They taste a little […]

BUDGET BEEF WELLINGTON

This budget beef wellington uses a less expensive cut of steak and is served deconstructed, making it quick and easy to prepare. Accompanied with veggies and simple roast potatoes, it’s a tasty weeknight meal. While I love a proper beef wellington, and eye fillet steak is delicious, I don’t feel like I can justify it for a regular weeknight meal! […]

MEDITERRANEAN ROAST CHICKEN

An easier version of a full roast meal. This Mediterranean roast chicken uses butterflied chicken for quicker cooking, and is served with roast kumara mixed into a tasty salad. I like to cook the kumara pieces on the same tray as the chicken, to infuse flavour (and a bit of fat!) into them. They don’t go as crisp this way […]

LAMB AND PESTO PASTA

This lamb and pesto pasta dish is full of really yummy ingredients, including some hidden veggies. It’s super quick and easy to make. If you haven’t heard of ‘wide lasagne’ before, have a look in the dried pasta section of the supermarket. Rather than lasagne sheets, it’s smaller pieces of pasta with frilly edges. Layering the pasta together with the […]
