The “Pizza” Omelette

Yes…you read it right! Stay with me.. its not as crazy as you think! In short this is a cross between an omelette, Spanish tortilla and a frittata. Besides being very easy, quick and cheap to make the best thing about this is you can make it with pretty much whatever you have in your…

Skillet Chicken Potato Pot Pie

OK its not a true pie, nor even a true pot pie – but when you’re wheat free and/or being health conscious pastry – of any sorts is a no no … plus you’d probably serve your “pie” with potatoes anyway…right?   This one pot, skillet cooked pie alternative is a tasty, hearty, creamy and…

Spanish Chicken Bake

So let me paint you a mental picture, one I am sure you can sympathise with… Its been a tough, long and frankly awful day, you fancy something hearty, full of flavour, satisfying and most importantly quick to prepare and even quicker to clean up!  This one pot bake is the ideal solution whether cooking…

King Prawn Pad Thai

I really like Asian food, but I’ll admit – its definitely not my strong point in the kitchen! One thing I have learned is that; in order to get those fragrant and fresh Asian flavours, you need a lot of ingredients and many of them HAVE to be fresh! Dried versions (unless specified) just won’t…

Griddled Pork Steaks & Herby Crushed Potatoes

Pork used to be at the bottom of my favourite meats list, but recently I’ve grown to to love it… especially its price tag! Pork offers a variety of cuts and I wouldn’t hesitate to say its just as versatile as chicken !  If you can make it with chicken…I bet you can make it…

Dad’s Hearty Scrambled Eggs

As the title suggests this dish is my late Dad’s. I’m not sure how it came about exactly but I’m sure it has something to do with my dad not wanting to do a load of dishes after making breakfast for a family of five! This ‘one pan’ mini full English dish makes a fantastic…

Tuna Pasta Bake for Grown Ups

OK so I know what you’re thinking…tuna pasta bake? Admittedly in my younger years as a student I loved this stuff! In a sachet or in a jar, I didn’t care I just fancied it!  This dish is super satisfying and sometimes you know only a pasta bake is going to hit the spot!  As…

Loaded Potato Skins

The name says it all!  Loaded with cheese these beauties taste as naughty as they look!  Not recommended for anyone watching the calories!  These are ideal as a snack or a side to BBQ or grilled meats and fish – just as easy to make in large quantities  as they are for two!  And if…

Roast Lamb Shoulder Au Jus

Lamb – a symbol of spring! As I write this its the first day of Spring in the UK and its a Sunday so despite having lots of ‘real’ work to do all I can think about is preparing Easter crafts, planning an Easter cake and of course a traditional lamb roast! So I don’t…
