ROAST VEGGIE SALAD

A simple roast veggie salad is a great meal to have in your cooking repertoire. It’s super versatile and a great way to use up any veggies you have on hand.

JAPANESE CHICKEN CURRY

This Japanese chicken curry is mild, a little bit sweet and super tasty. A delicious family-friendly curry! I had intended on trying out a packaged Japanese curry paste for this meal – until I looked at the ingredients list and realised it was loaded up with MSG and palm oil! This version is made from scratch, so you know exactly […]

CREAMY SPINACH ARTICHOKE SALMON

Creamy spinach artichoke salmon is just a little bit gourmet, and really easy to put together! There are lots of possible variations if you don’t like any of the ingredients. The look on Royce’s face was a very obvious “not impressed” when he asked what was for dinner and I told him about this meal! Neither salmon nor artichokes are […]

SWEET CHILLI CHICKEN BOWLS

These easy sweet chilli chicken bowls tick all the boxes. Quick to make, loaded up with plenty of veggies and wholegrain carbs, and (most importantly) absolutely delicious! Grilling the chicken right at the end of the cooking process thickens up the sauce and makes the chicken irresistibly sticky. Just make sure you watch it very carefully – things can so […]
