This is based on a recipe my dad cooked, which he credited to the late, great, Antonio Carluccio. I've never actually seen the recipe as published by him, if indeed it ever was, that said it's not the most complicated of things to cook. You end up with crispy skinned chicken, miniature crispy roasted potato bites, sweet slightly caramelised onion and the icing on the cake is the roasted sweet and sticky garlic that can be squeezed out of the cloves.
Bolognese Conchigli pasta bake
The conchigli that I use for this pasta bake are quite thick, lending them an almost meaty texture that really gives the pasta bake some substance
Peri-Peri Chicken Thighs
Chicken thighs are wonderfully cheap in comparison to breasts, and they have more flavour. A smoky chilli marinade is a match made in heaven!
Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled chicken
Putting all the ingredients in a slow cooker for four hours, then coming back, shredding the chicken and eating it - couldn't be easier!
Special Breakfast Tomatoes
This is a bit of a childhood favourite, it doesn't lokok pretty but it does taste amazing!
Lamb Hotpot recipes normally use chunks of meat, rather than minced meat. This recipe, based on one from gousto, uses minced lamb which keeps the cost and the cookl time to a minimum
Soda bread is a 'quick bread' which means it's great when you're short of time and need a bread fix
An attempt at re-creating a dish I had when dining with colleagues. It's a long, slow cook time but well worth it!
Make this a day or so before you need it, if you can, it gets stickier and tastier after baking!
Ham & Cheese Toastie
It feels like a bit of a stretch to call a Ham & Cheese Toastie a recipe, but I don't care
This recipe for greens is a nice way to lift them a bit for variety and make the meal a little bit richer
A tried and tested tasty dish that takes 30 minutes all-in, yes it's rich, but it's a bit of a treat meal!
Chicken and Ham Pie
Another pie recipe, this time Chicken and Ham with some leeks snuck in for good measure
An essential accompaniment to the roast dinner, I think there's actually a law that says you can't have one without the other!
