  • Special Breakfast Tomatoes
    This is a bit of a childhood favourite, it doesn't lokok pretty but it does taste amazing!

  • Lamb Hotpot
    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
    Soda bread is a 'quick bread' which means it's great when you're short of time and need a bread fix

  • Sausage Ragu
    An attempt at re-creating a dish I had when dining with colleagues. It's a long, slow cook time but well worth it!

  • Banana Bread
    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

  • Braised greens
    This recipe for greens is a nice way to lift them a bit for variety and make the meal a little bit richer

  • Creamy Chicken
    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

  • Yorkshire Puddings
    An essential accompaniment to the roast dinner, I think there's actually a law that says you can't have one without the other!

  • Ham and Mozarella Panko-crumbed Kievs
    The Chicken Kiev has got a bit of a bad reputation now thanks to the mass-manufactured ones made from formed chicken rather than a whole chicken breast. Once you've had a Kiev that's been made from a breast rather than processed meat, you'll probably never want to go back!

  • Tomato, Mozarella and Basil plated salad
    Another of the sides I roll out when we BBQ, a bit of variety other than a green salad makes a nice change

  • Blueberry and Banana Mini-Muffins
    Gooey, sticky and full of fruit. These mini-muffins disappear into hungry litte ones very quickly!

  • Pork Loin steaks marinated in hoisin, ginger, garlic and chilli
    It's nice to have something different on the BBQ from time to time, a marinade with sugar in it works really well with pork because the sugars in the honey help to carmelise and crisp up the fat on the BBQ

  • Fish Pie
    Fish Pie is such a comfort food, I have to confess that even in the height of summer this is something I'd contemplate eating though perhaps with a salad rather than steamed vegetables
