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.

CHINESE PORK STIR FRY

This simple Chinese pork stir fry is flavoursome without being overpowering. A tasty meal that the whole family will enjoy. This was another meal with a funny reaction from Royce. When I asked him what he thought, he responded “well, you can’t really go wrong with a chicken stir fry, can you?”! 😂 It was definitely not chicken in the […]

TUNA BAKE

This isn’t your typical tuna bake – it’s more like a savoury slice (no pasta in sight!). Top with asparagus then finish with cheese for an irresistible golden top.  Royce’s reaction when he heard I’d been cooking with canned tuna and asparagus: “Yuck, you can throw that meal straight in the bin!”. I waited a day before I served a […]

ITALIAN MEATBALL SOUP

This hearty and nourishing Italian meatball soup is topped with two cheeses and fresh basil. Serve with bread and butter and you might find you can easily get 5 portions out of this meal. I had to fit one more soup recipe in while the cold weather is still here! This Italian meatball soup is a lot more substantial than […]
