00Honey & Ginger glazed Chantenay CarrotsChantenay carrots are extremely versatile and while they're delicious lightly boiled and served with butter and seasoning, there's no need to stop there! They can be eaten just as they are and are particularly popular with children because of their sweet crunchiness and small size. They can be served halved or whole as crudités with other vegetables and a dip. They can also be boiled,steamed,roasted,grilled,stir fried,microwaved etc. I've chosen to roast them in the Halogen oven but this can be done in a conventional oven too. Whichever way you choose to cook them they are a great addition to a Sunday Roast, a picnic or even to replace potatoes in your usual dinner. I served mine on a bed of Spinach and topped with maple glazed Spare Ribs which was delicious and just shows how versatile the little gems are.

00Creamy Balsamic Glazed ChickenChicken breast fillets are so quick and easy to cook with. They come ready sliced so your just taking them out of the container, seasoning and adding straight into the pan.. They cook in no time so by adding a few ingredients you have a speedy dinner in 20-30mns appr. How good is that? The sauce is the star of the show here and so delicious I actually wanted to lick my plate lol. This serves 2 and would be a great date night meal, but you can easily increase the quantities to serve 4 to enjoy with the family. Im sure this delicious dinner will become a family favourite in no time. It's also so easy to adapt to you and your families tastes. You can use Chicken breasts or thighs, swap the cream cheese for cream for a touch of richness and add more vegetables if you prefer. .

00Vegetable soupIt is sometimes getting harder to get bargains nowadays but when you do its a bonus.These soup packs are sold in most supermarkets for 80p-£1 depending on the content. They are also easy to pick up from the reduced section at a fraction of the cost. The problem is they tend to break down pretty quick so if your not going to use it right away throw it in the freezer to use at a later date. But this recipe will give you an idea how to bulk it out a bit so it doesn't get wasted.This pack ( carrot,swede,potato) was reduced to 10p-I added a few extra ingredients to bulk it out a bit and had a filling lunch in no time. I added some porridge oats- (to thicken it) and some milk- (to make it creamy without the calories) - this also combats the vinegar taste these pack have at times. I adjusted the cooking time also as the packet said 15mns but the veg was still hard so needed longer -45 mns appr. I got 4 portions from this and it was delicious and filling. If you wanted to make this vegetarian then omit the bacon and use veg stock in place of chicken. This is an easy one to adapt to you and your families tastes so why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
00Loaded Hassleback potatoesThe Hassleback Potatoes were invented by a Swedish Chef at Restaurant Hasselbacken in Stockholm, and we have been enjoying them ever since. This particular style of potato is so versatile and easy to do- sliced into thin wedges but left joined at the bottom like a concertina, baked until the layers fan out into rounds of crispiness and served as is, or embellished with toppings of your choice. I had a pack of continental meat and some cheese and voila my humble potato was transformed into a feast of mediterranean flavours. This dish started out as a side but quickly became the main meal as I didnt want to spoil it by adding unnecessary extras and I found it so filling too. Its so easy to adapt this recipe to you and your families tastes by substituting the Salami or Chorizo for cooked ham and bacon or the Goats cheese for Cheddar. You could even let the kids add their own toppings before baking. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
00Pesto crusted Cod HashI set out to use some Cod fillets I had and top it with maybe Pesto, then use what I could find in the fridge to cobble together a dinner. So, I added in a tin of new potatoes and a bit of bacon, but after baking them separately I thought, why not combine this into a hash? so I did lol. You can of course do this at the beginning instead of halfway through as I did lol making it a one pot meal. This feeds 2 but it's easy to double up on the quantities to feed 4. Combining the unique sun-dried tomato, garlic & cheesy flavours of pesto with smoky bacon and the delicate flavours of cod this dish is full of yummy flavours. It's speedy and filling and using frozen cod fillets can be very economical. Its also easy to adapt by swapping cod for pollock or salmon, green pesto for red or bacon for pancetta. You can bulk it out by adding extra vegetables too and even a sprinkle of Parmesan.. It really is very versatile and its easy to adapt to you and your families tastes.

00Slow Cooker French Onion SoupThere are few things more comforting than a real French onion soup - slowly cooked, caramelised onions that turn mellow and sweet in a broth laced with white wine and Cognac. The whole thing is finished off with crunchy baked croutons of crusty bread topped with melted, toasted cheese.....but this is FYF French Onion Soup so no brandy and no wine. Instead, we have beefy bovril cubes and a combination of Worcestershire and Soy sauce to make it as rich in flavour as any that you will get in a restaurant but at a fraction of the cost. I used a mixture of onions-some common or garden ones plus some shallots that I had left from another dish. I also used garlic butter on the bread before toasting the mixture of white and red mature cheddar cheese, adding another depth of flavour to this yummy soup. This is a great recipe that uses minimum ingredients but packs lots of taste and is very filling. It's easy to adapt it to suit you and your families tastes so why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
00Slow Cooked Cashew ChickenAnother Fakeaway meal thats delicious and I'm sure your family will ask for it time and again. Cashew chicken is a Chinese-American dish that combines chicken, with cashews and either a light brown garlic sauce or a thick sauce made from chicken stock, soy sauce and oyster sauce. As this is FYF I have adapted it slightly to our ethos of using what we have available in the cupboards.There's very little prep and the bonus is, by throwing it in the slow cooker, it leaves you to get on with your day. I used White wine vinegar instead of Rice wine vinegar and chicken breasts instead of thighs. You can adapt it to suit you and your families tastes and budget also by adding peppers or other vegetables that you prefer. The choice is yours.

00Kofta KebabsGrilled kofta (or kefta) kebabs are skewers of ground beef and lamb mixed with fresh parsley, onions, garlic and warming spices. They are great for lunches, picnics or a Fakeaway dinnertime feast accompanied by homemade flatbreads (recipe on the website), salad, tzatziki or your own favourite dressing. I've paired it back a little as I didn't have all the spices available but you can add more if you prefer as its very versatile. You can tailor this recipe to suit you and your families tastes adding or substituting whatever meat,herbs or spices you like.
