PRAWN TACOS

These prawn tacos are SO quick and easy. Featuring delicious crispy prawns, Asian slaw and avocado, they’re the perfect dinner for busy weeknights. I don’t often use pre-prepared salads and dressing mixes, mostly because I prefer to make my own dressings without all the additives. But with this week’s theme of quick and easy, I thought I’d give one a […]

CHILLI CON CARNE

Chilli con carne is such a popular meal – I thought it was about time it featured in one of the weekly menus! Serve on rice and load up with all the toppings. Chilli con carne is made in the same way as bolognese sauce, though I’d say this is even easier because you don’t have to boil the pasta […]

EASY CHICKEN FETTUCCINE

An indulgent creamy chicken fettuccine with a few added veggies to make it a little more suitable for weeknights! Lite cream cheese works really well as an alternative to cream in many savoury recipes. It’s lower in kilojoules and has more flavour too. Also great in anything mashed (try this pan fried fish)! This is a really quick and easy […]

STUFFED SAUSAGES

These stuffed sausages are a really versatile meal. You can use vegetarian sausages if you like, otherwise go for a meaty option with either pork, beef or chicken sausages. This meal was the first time I’ve tried vegetarian sausages… the packaging looked great, flavour sounded delicious (parmesan and red onion), all the ingredients seemed to be things I like, and […]

QUICK LAMB TAGINE

This is the easy weeknight version of lamb tagine. It’s prepared on the stovetop and ready in under an hour. Pearl couscous, toasted almonds and a generous dollop of yoghurt make the perfect accompaniments. This isn’t an authentic tagine recipe, but it’s quick, flavoursome and nutritious. I always love a meal with pearl couscous in it! Give it a try […]

CHINESE CHICKEN SALAD

This Chinese chicken salad features plenty of fresh veggies, crunchy noodles and a delicious tangy dressing. A great salad to have in you repertoire! The great thing about this recipe is that all the salad ingredients can be prepped while the chicken cooks in the oven, and you should have a bit of spare time for clean up too. So […]

Chocolate caramel self saucing pudding with scoops of ice cream and caramel sauce on top.

CHOCOLATE CARAMEL SELF SAUCING PUDDING

The ultimate cold evening dessert! This chocolate caramel self saucing pudding is studded with white chocolate and pockets of caramel. Remove a spoonful to discover all the delicious sauce underneath. Yum! Father’s Day this weekend was a great excuse to develop a bonus indulgent dessert recipe (no need to limit this to a once-a-year treat though!). Self saucing puddings are […]

Tuna bake sliced into squares with salad ingredients on the side.

MENU 74

Enjoy the last of soup season with an Italian meatball soup. It’s topped with two cheeses and fresh basil. Tuna bake is next on the menu - but not your typical tuna bake. It’s more like a savoury slice (no pasta!). Round out the week with a Chinese pork stir fry. Full of flavour but not overpowering, it’s a meal the whole family will enjoy.
