Golden, crunchy stuffed beef schnitzel oozing with ham and cheese is a scrumptious way to kick off the week. Follow it up with a warm winter salad - an irresistible vegetarian combo of haloumi, roasted mushrooms and pesto. The easy chicken and leek pie is a deconstructed version for quicker cooking, with kumara rounds and a cheesy pastry topper.
Easy chicken and leek pie is such great comfort food. This deconstructed version has kumara rounds for the base and a cheesy pastry topper. Making the filling while the kumara and pastry bake means you can have the pie ready in much less time than usual, while still enjoying all the same flavours. This makes it a great make-ahead meal […]
This warm winter salad is full of delicious, fresh flavours. Garlic, roasted veggies, sundried tomatoes, pesto and haloumi make for a delicious vegetarian combo. I think this might be one of my new favourite salads – I love everything about it! The pearl couscous adds a nice contrasting texture and is actually quite flavoursome when cooked in chicken stock. If […]
Golden, crunchy stuffed beef schnitzel oozing with ham and cheese…mmm. Cauliflower cheese mash is the perfect pairing. I’ve used fresh breadcrumbs as I think they give the nicest texture and flavour, but you could use panko breadcrumbs if you prefer. Pureeing, mashing or ricing cauliflower somehow turns it into a much nicer vegetable! Do you agree? This mash is the […]
Start the week off well with hot smoked salmon cakes and rocket and avocado salad. This is a delicious and nutritious meal. Sweet and sour pork has all the flavours of the takeaway version but can be made in the comfort of your own home. The final meal - meatball subs - are an indulgent and satisfying Friday night dinner. Don't forget the serviettes!
Meatball subs make a super tasty, indulgent meal. We like to cosy up inside on a weekend evening and eat these while watching a movie! My favourite rolls to use for meatball subs are corn-dusted torpedo rolls. They’re light and buttery, and help to make this meal extra delicious! If you make these, leave a comment below and let me […]
Sweet and sour pork is our usual pick when we go for a Chinese takeaway. This homemade version tastes pretty similar but is much more nutritious! Instead of being deep fried, the coated pork pieces are lightly fried (with much less oil) for a couple of minutes, then finished off in the oven. This makes for a less stressful cooking […]
These flavoursome salmon cakes use chickpeas instead of mashed potato, making patties that are much quicker to put together and hold their shape nicely. I love regular fish cakes but we don’t have them often because I find the process of making the mashed potato, cooling it down and then making the patties too time consuming for a weeknight. Using […]
