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, […]
This week is all about cooking yummy, nutritious meals with budget-friendly proteins. Toad in the hole with caramelised onion gravy is the perfect winter warmer. Try the lemon garlic chicken drumsticks for an easy, inexpensive dinner. Tuna mornay pasta bake is macaroni cheese with a twist - if you don't like tuna, there are plenty of other options!
