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, […]

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!
This creamy tuna mornay pasta bake is really just a jazzed up macaroni cheese – it’s the perfect comfort food. If you don’t like tuna you could switch this out for cooked bacon, chicken or chorizo. Make sure you use a large dish for this one, or try two smaller dishes if you’re having this meal over a couple of […]
These lemon garlic chicken drumsticks are an inexpensive and easy dinner. The warm kumara, kale and feta salad is a nice alternative to regular salads on cooler nights. If you’re not a fan of eating meat off the bone (I know a few people!), you can use boneless chicken thighs instead. Kale works really well in the salad, especially if […]
Toad in the hole is the perfect winter warming meal. Step it up a notch with caramelised onion gravy and steamed veggies topped with feta and pinenuts. My favourite part about a roast beef meal has definitely always been the Yorkshire puddings. When I was younger we sometimes managed to bribe mum into making them to go with other roast meals […]
