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!
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!
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
Cheese scones are a nice Sunday afternoon treat that takes very little time or effort
Braised beef shin with thyme dumplings

My take on beef stroganoff, made as a mushroom free dish, with Sirloin steak as a happy medium between fillet and rump
