Tomato and bacon pasta is simple home cooking. It’s a great meal for busy weeknights. I’ve used wholemeal penne pasta, but you could use other types of pasta instead. Do you like wholemeal pasta? I’ll happily choose brown rice over white rice and wholegrain bread over white bread (for everyday eating, anyway), but wholemeal pasta definitely feels more of a […]
These chargrilled chicken sandwiches are so easy to make yet still taste so delicious! Chargrilled steak would make a nice alternative to chicken. Burgers always go down well in our household, so I’m forever looking for ways to add a healthy twist and try something different. This meal can be whipped up in half an hour and is satisfying enough […]
Almond coated fish has such a yummy texture and flavour. Serve with honey roast veggies, steamed green beans and a generous dollop of lemon aioli. This recipe would work well with salmon fillets too. If you’re not a fan of fish, chicken tenders would be great alternative. Just make sure you cook them for a bit longer (I recommend finishing […]
Jumbo stuffed pasta shells with spinach and fecotta are the perfect nourishing comfort food. The beef and broccoli stir fry is an easy mid-week meal - it's saucy, mild and family-friendly. And if you've ever wondered how to get sausage rolls into your dinner rotation, I've found a way: add some veggies and serve with a big helping of spring slaw.

The inspiration for this slaw recipe comes from my Auntie Kerri – she made it for dinner one night when I was visiting her and my uncle […]
Beef and broccoli stir fry is a popular Chinese dish. With its rich yet mild sauce it’s a great family-friendly meal. As per usual, I’ve snuck in a few extra veggies! I would use rump steak if you can. I know it’s quite a lot more effort than using pre-cut beef stir fry, but you’ll be rewarded with tender beef […]
You won’t notice the lack of meat in these delicious vegetarian stuffed pasta shells. Fecotta makes a yummy alternative to ricotta, if you can find it in your local supermarket. I’ve just realised this is the third week in a row I’ve included a recipe with the word ‘stuffed’ in the title! Last week we had spinach and feta stuffed […]
For a really yummy, lower carb dinner, chicken caesar burger bowls with pickled red onion and homemade croutons are hard to beat. The second meal - seafood chowder in homemade bread bowls - is moreishly good. Miso paste really helps to balance the flavours. Finish the week off with spinach and feta stuffed lamb with a delicious minty dressing.
