Pork, apple and cheddar sausage rolls with spring slaw.


Jumbo stuffed pasta shells with spinach and fecotta are the perfect nourishing comfort food. The beef and broccoli stir fry is an easy mid-week meal - it's saucy, mild and family-friendly.

These chicken caesar burger bowls are a jazzed up version of caesar salad. I’ve thrown in a few extra veggies for more nutrition and flavour. This is a really yummy, lower carb dinner.

Meatball subs make a super tasty, indulgent meal. Perfect for cosying up inside on a

Don't forget the serviettes!

Stuffed baked potatoes take a little while to prepare but the wait is definitely worth it! 
Microwaving the potatoes first helps to speed up the cooking time.


Yum, yum, yum! I really enjoyed creating (and eating!) the meals for this week's menu. Crunchy top chicken with crumpet bread and salad is full of delicious textures and flavours. The vegetarian spaghetti bolognese has haloumi added for extra yum factor, and the stuffed baked potatoes are crammed with chorizo, corn, sautéed red cabbage and cheese.
