    This is the ultimate comfort food on a rainy night - and quick to prepare. Add the crushed chillies if you want a bit of spice.

    This is a luxurious weeknight supper that is both quick to make and delicious. Serve over rice, pasta, or a bed of green veg.

    This is such a flavourful, nutty, fresh tasting pasta salad. I always serve it at my parties. I think it's the combination of fresh spinach, the crispy bacon and the pine nuts that make it so good.

    A fresh, satisfying chicken salad that makes a great filler for crusty baguettes.
