Quick Eats

Quick fixes for the evenings when time isn’t on your side

Salmon Fishcakes

I LOVE salmon, but we’re looking for ways to cut down the cost of our weekly food shop and make our shopping go further. This recipe is PERFECT. I use frozen salmon fillets and two will make 4 large fishcakes. I serve with salmon and potato wedges and you have 4 meals for less than […]

Sausage, Red wine, Basil & Tomato Pasta

Once you master the perfect homemade tomato pasta sauce, I promise you, you’ll never go back to the jar. Full of flavour, no hidden nasties and super easy to make! I make a big batch and freeze it in portions ready for a lazy lunch! This is also a perfect store cupboard dinner – if […]

Egg Fried Rice

There’s something about a big bowl of egg fried rice – it’s like a bowl of pure comfort. Something so simple, but so tasty. I’d happily order it from the Chinese and nothing else! It might sound strange (especially considering how faithful I am to the weekly Sunday roast), but I LOVE this as a […]

Herby Chicken and Peach Salad

A salad. For dinner?!?! This is something that really doesn’t happen very often. Because, who really wants a salad for dinner? Someone who has spent 16+ weeks in lockdown with nothing to do other than bake & eat. And has far salads go this is pretty good. Maybe that’s because it actually grilled chicken breast […]

Creamy Mushroom Pasta

Another dish on the table in less than 15 minutes – packed full of flavour and with only a handful of ingredients! Perfect for a stress-free dinner or a speedy lunchtime snack! If you’re looking for something slightly lighter for lunchtime, (or even breakfast!) try the mushroom mixture on toasted sourdough! Serves 2 Ingredients Half […]

Mushroom Chilli Con Carne

Chilli Con Carne – one of the most versatile dishes there is. Have it with rice, on a jacket potato, on chips, in a burrito, with salad…the list goes on. We always batch cook this and have portions in the freezer for a panic lunch prep, or a quick comforting dinner. Chilli cheese chips is […]

Carrot Top Pesto and Mushroom Pasta

The perfect lazy dinner. Pesto Pasta. So simple, but so satisfying. Pesto pasta is another go to quick meal for us and brilliant for last minute lunch prep. We’ve always got a couple of jars stashed in the cupboard but nothing beats homemade. I’m usually a straight up basil pesto kinda gal and have been […]

Spinach and Mascarpone Pasta

For those of you London foodies who have been to Flour and Grape in Bermondsey, it is likely you will relate when I say their Spinach & Mascarpone pasta dish is out of this world. It’s proof that the best dishes are the simplest. And whilst we’re in lockdown and unable to get our hands […]

Roasted Chorizo Cod with Crispy Potatoes

My favourite way to cook fish is by wrapping it in parchment paper with some veg and letting it work its magic! For this, I used frozen cod pieces which I love. They’re great to have in the freezer for a last minute dinner and also to save a few pennies! A great dinner to […]
