On the menu this week are some of my favourite meals! Start the week off well with Asian-style pork lettuce cups - an easy-to-make, fun family dinner. Steak with mash and creamy mushroom sauce is a nutrient-rich and delicious meal to look forward to mid-week. Finish off with an epic fish burger as a great Friday night alternative to takeaways. Yum!
You can’t beat a good burger on a Friday night! The key ingredients that make these ultimate fish burgers taste like the real deal are plenty of aioli sauce and crisp, crunchy lettuce! These burgers use a few more ‘processed’ ingredients than my usual weeknight meals (white burger buns, frozen fish portions…) but we love to have them as an […]
Steak with creamy mushroom sauce – the ultimate dinner! Tender greens and creamy mash combine with a perfectly cooked steak and melt-in-your-mouth mushroom sauce. I’m not much of a meat and three veg kind of person, but it’s hard to beat a perfectly cooked steak on a pile of mashed potato with an epic sauce! I used eye fillet (as […]
Tasty pork and veggies with noodles, roasted peanuts and a sweet chilli soy dressing, all wrapped up in a big lettuce leaf. These pork lettuce cups are a fun and delicious weeknight meal!

Teriyaki chicken on quick fried rice is a mash up of Japanese and Chinese - not exactly authentic but so easy and tasty. The final meal - bacon and egg pie with a twist - is delish and well worth a try.
Bacon and egg pie – YUM! This version with potato, cheese and spinach is truly scrumptious. Using a metal cake tin helps to prevent the pastry base becoming soggy. I know a lot of people say that only bacon and eggs belong in a bacon and egg pie… I really do think the few extras in this recipe add a […]
This mash up of Japanese teriyaki chicken and Chinese fried rice is not exactly authentic… BUT, it’s a yum meal and incredibly quick and easy to prepare. Give it a try! The hardest part about this recipe is chopping up the chicken, especially if you’re anything like me and hate touching raw chicken. Does anyone else use a knife and […]
These cheesy pumpkin quesadillas may not look the prettiest but don’t let that put you off. Served with all the toppings they’re actually really tasty! Royce didn’t notice the absence of meat until I pointed it out to him after we’d finished eating! Perhaps you might be able to trick a meat-lover in your household too?! Don’t skimp on the […]
