Tasty lunch or supper dish that the whole family will enjoy. Try to use organic ingredients to enhance the taste of this quiche. I use spelt flour for the pastry although wholemeal flour can be used. Serve with tossed salad leaves dreseed with lemon juice and olive oil for a healthy and balanced meal.
I prefer to make a shortbread base rather than use digestive biscuits - it tastes a little richer. But the choice is yours. Either way, this is a great dessert for a crowd.
For many, traditional apple pie is the ultimate Bramley dish, and this quick and easy version is as simple as could be. Bramley’s unique taste and 'melt in the mouth' texture make it the cook’s choice, especially for pies and crumbles.
Individual tartlets served with a salad garnish make a very appealing starter. This fish filling is wonderfully light as it's made with a cornflour-thickened sauce, without the addition of fat, and whisked egg whites are folded in for an airy souffle-like texture. Serve straight from the oven to really impress.
A Parmesan-flavoured pizza dough makes a delicious case for a ricotta cheese and herb filling topped with sweet cherry tomatoes and black olives. Serve with a salad of mixed leaves and poppy, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, toasted to bring out their flavour, for a tempting and nutritious meal.
A very special fish pie that is sure to please everyone. The recipe uses a mixture of white fish, seafood and vegetables in a quick white sauce, topped with a golden tumeric potato pastry crust.
Carrot tarts, both sweet and savoury, were popular during Elizabethan times because they were naturally sweet and colourful. Here the smooth and creamy filling is made with low-fat soft cheese, plus cashew nuts for extra protein. The oats in the pastry provide a lovely nutty flavour.
With its firm texture, haddock makes an excellent pie filling, especially when teamed with cider, potatoes and prawns. Try serving with steamed savoy cabbage and chunky carrots.
This creamy fish pie tastes luxurious but is relatively low in fat. Pungent capers and gherkins have long been favourite flavourings in Britain and bring piquant contrast to the mild, comforting tastes and textures of fish, eggs and potato.
This classic American dessert is very simple to make, but will definitely impress guests at a barbecue or dinner party. It's gorgeously gooey, nutty and chocolaty.
This is a simple, yet delicious recipe. It's more like a custard tart with pecans.
A favourite among my family and friends. The apples go great with the shortbread crust. Very easy and delicious! Serve with cream.
Yummy comfort food at its best, also a cunning way to get kids to eat lentils. Crispy potato topping covering a tasty blend of red lentils with carrot, onion and celery in wine and stock.
Smoky chunks of haddock and sweet, juicy kernels of corn make a fabulous filling for this luscious tart. Using frozen sweetcorn means that you can enjoy it all year round.
A huge dish of piping hot fish pie is the ultimate in comfort food, and this version with its green-flecked watercress mash is no exception.
This is a classic banoffee pie, sure to satisfy any sweet tooth! Since the most time consuming thing is making the toffee, I like to boil a few tins of milk at a time and reserve some for the next time I make banoffee -- doing this makes the second, third and fourth pies actually quite simple to make!
A traditional Christmas treat, this mince pie recipe is made easy with the use of best-quality shop-bought filling.

This was my gran's apple pie recipe. I have never seen another apple pie quite like it. It will always be my favourite and has won me several first place prizes in local competitions. I hope this pie becomes one of your favourites as well!
