A classic, comforting pud. Using ready made frozen pastry makes this a cinch.
I have made this many times in the past few years and its great on a cold wintery evening and has a feel good factor!
I had a few left over veggies which I didn't know what to do with, so I thought I would do this lovely warming soup! You can vary the ingredients to what you have in your cupboard.
A traditional bread and butter pudding that puffs up and cooks to the perfect consistency. I've named the recipe my mothers favourite as she adores this dessert and always finishes it off in one day.
I made this recipe to deal with a "green day" on Slimming World. If you use the pasta as free food, the gammon as a healthy B choice and the soup as a Healthy B choice, it is "syn" free! Fabulous. It works; I lost 4 stone.
Basic beer batter, good for almost any firm white fish, such as lemon sole, halibut, cod or pollack.
An easy, cheap, comforting soup that always makes me think of my mum's.
Also known as cranachan, this easy pud is perfect for Burns Night - or any night, really!
Straight from Orkney, here's a traditional clapshot recipe for Burns supper. Serve hot with oatcakes or haggis.
i was pretty short of cash one day and this was all i could find in the fridge. its now become a firm favourite with all the family and my friends cook it now also
This is something fairly healthy that my older children love, it's also a great way of getting rid of any leftover vegatables you have.
Very quick and easy pasta dish. Ideal for children/families.
A resurrected " used to bake" for my children years ago, lost the original recipe so tried and succesfully baked them again. They are very simple and I think very yummy
This is quite possibly the poshest jacket potato i've ever tried, and certainly the most delicious!
Delicious, naughty, gorgeous and really easy to make! No baking required! If you can melt chocolate and bash biscuits this is for you!!
This is a cheap and tasty recipe. This recipe is for 2 people, but ingredients can be altered for more! A nice summer dish!
This is a very cheap, tasty and filling meal ,ideal for families! Ingredients can be adapted to make more and you won't have to make a roux so saves a lot of time and hassle!
Daft name, I know. I asked my granny (a retired chef) what they actually were and she said they were a kind of truffle (the choccy sweet, not the fungus). I looked up truffles and they are made from cream, sugar and grated chocolate. They are NOTHING like these. I guess Granny was bluffing. So I am going to stick to the daft name above until someone has a better suggestion.
I always used to run to the kitchen when I was little and my mum was cooking this for tea. Another one of her family's simpler recipes, this makes for a very cheesey treat in winter time, just serve it up with some crusty bread and Bob's your mother's brother! I find it always tastes better with a mild rather than a mature Cheddar. I have also suggested white potatoes, as I prefer their texture in this recipe. But this is also up to your own personal taste (or whatever's in your cupboard!).
The ultimate in comfort food! A heavenly, light cheesy cross between a pie and a souffle - perfect with freshly baked bread or a green salad. As it only takes half hour to make, it's a wonderful, quick supper.
