Start the week off well with hot smoked salmon cakes and rocket and avocado salad. This is a delicious and nutritious meal. Sweet and sour pork has all the flavours of the takeaway version but can be made in the comfort of your own home. The final meal - meatball subs - are an indulgent and satisfying Friday night dinner. Don't forget the serviettes!
Meatball subs make a super tasty, indulgent meal. We like to cosy up inside on a weekend evening and eat these while watching a movie! My favourite rolls to use for meatball subs are corn-dusted torpedo rolls. They’re light and buttery, and help to make this meal extra delicious! If you make these, leave a comment below and let me […]
Sweet and sour pork is our usual pick when we go for a Chinese takeaway. This homemade version tastes pretty similar but is much more nutritious! Instead of being deep fried, the coated pork pieces are lightly fried (with much less oil) for a couple of minutes, then finished off in the oven. This makes for a less stressful cooking […]
These flavoursome salmon cakes use chickpeas instead of mashed potato, making patties that are much quicker to put together and hold their shape nicely. I love regular fish cakes but we don’t have them often because I find the process of making the mashed potato, cooling it down and then making the patties too time consuming for a weeknight. Using […]
Making the most of delicious comfort foods this week! Leek and potato soup with cheese and garlic quick bread is a satisfying vegetarian meal. For a mild, rich and nourishing curry, chicken korma should definitely hit the spot. Finish off the week with loaded Mexican fries - a super yummy alternative to nachos.
Crispy, oven-baked fries loaded with alllll the toppings. Yum yum! These loaded Mexican fries are a great alternative to nachos. You can bake the fries without boiling them first, but par-boiling helps to make them nice and crunchy on the outside and fluffy inside, so they taste more like deep-fried chips! This meal does take a while to cook but […]
This mildly spiced chicken korma curry is rich and satisfying. With no cream and a few extra veggies thrown in, it’s a little healthier than usual but still really delicious! I only tried chicken korma for the first time recently and was pleasantly surprised – I usually don’t stray far from chicken tikka masala when it comes to Indian curries […]
Creamy leek and potato soup with homemade cheese and garlic quick bread – this is truly scrumptious! Soup might not seem like much for dinner but this is a deceptively filling meal. The quick bread is the loaf version of a savoury muffin (but better!). It’s loaded with plenty of tasty ingredients. Warm from the oven, brushed with garlic butter, […]
