00Turkey Meatballs in a Creamy Peppercorn SauceThia dish caused a discussion between my sister and I. We were both cooking meatballs but I prefer a creamy sauce to her tomato based sauce and I think it works better with the milder taste of turkey. This is a lovely change to the usual and I'm sure you will agree with me lol. Its creamy richness has just the right amount of heat but if you like it a little spicier then by all means adjust it your preference by adding more peppercorns as the cream cheese takes some of the heat out of the dish. These meatballs are large so I cut them in half before serving and this makes them go further but you could use smaller ones, add a few more or even add 1 or 2 sausages into the sauce too. The choice is yours. Its also a 1 pan dish which is a great saver on the washing up 😀 Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your thoughts x
00Turkey KebabsWho doesn't love a kebab? We normally associate them with late nights, a few drinks, and rolling from the pub into the kebab shop to finish off the night. Its a right of passage when your out partying 🤣 These are a little healthier, and cheaper, as I'm using Turkey breast but you could use chicken breasts or thighs if you prefer. I've wrapped it in a garlic flatbread(recipe on the website) and added side salad and Tzatziki dip (recipe on the website) too, but again you could serve with chips or rice. Its totally adaptable to suit your tastes and budget. 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
00Roasted Pepper, Carrot & Chilli SoupNow normally when I'm making a soup or a curry or anything to do with adding peppers, I just chop them up and bung them in after I've added the onions, but I'd just watched a video of an Italian granny (- I love Pasta Grannies) 😁 - toasting them on her gas stove top and I thought " hmmm, I bet they taste amazing!" So I did my version ...I don't have a gas stove so I did them in my Halogen oven and although they didn't come out black , they are still the sweetest peppers I've tasted so I'll definitely be doing them again. Its worth that little extra time. This is a very simple recipe with just a few ingredients but a lot of taste. You can tailor it to suit you and your families tastes by adjusting the recipe slightly...not baking the peppers, adding less chilli, substituting the cream cheese for double cream or creme fraiche...the choice is yours.

00Moroccan Sweet Potato SaladWhen we think of potato salad we generally think of white potatoes smothered in salad dressing. This recipe changes things up a bit by using Sweet potato, dried fruit and a tangy marinade. You can buy a jar of Moroccan Seasoning / Ras El Hanout but its expensive to buy those small jars....much better to make it from scratch and store it in an airtight container. This can then be used for lamb or pork dishes or even a coating on potato wedgesand tailored to suit your tastes. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below.

00Beetroot SoupWarming, full of flavour and delicious. Exactly what you want from a bowl of soup.Cooked beetroot is a totally different flavour from the stuff you serve at a picnic. This has an earthy warm flavour that works well with the salty tang of the Feta. You could use Parmesan or a strong cheddar too. There's not a lot of waste as the skin, stems and leaves are edible too so don't chuck them away! Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below.

00Chicken & Chorizo TraybakeTraybakes are fab. They save on time,dishes and are minimum prep so they're a great midweek option. I've used a mix of chicken pieces in this recipe-drumsticks and thighs but you could use breast or quarters. This would also work well with Turkey steaks or with Pork chops. You can tailor it to suit your families tastes by adding a little chilli or a different vegetable too. I just used up what I had in the fridge.

00Cream of Celery SoupCream of Celery soup is a new favourite for me. I received 2 lots of Celery in my shopping and thought "What am I going to use all this for?" and Soup was an easy option. This is as filling as it is tasty, and really nice cold too, so would be a lovely change on a warm summer day. Its also low in calories and packed full of vitamins, so whats not to likely?

00Vegetable KormaWe do love a curry and a Korma is one of our favourites. It's mild creamy sweetness is family friendly and you can adjust the heat to the levels you like. I've paired back the spices as I find that Garam Masala contains most of the main ingredients you'll find in most Korma recipes. This of course makes it more purse friendly, but we have a Korma paste recipe on the website if you'd rather use that. This vegetable korma is filling and flavoursome. You can add any mix of vegetables you like or add some chicken or fish if you fancy. 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
00Chicken Tikka MasalaRumour has it that the Tikka Masala we all know and love, was 1st served in Glasgow. The chef was almost finished for the evening but a late request had him scrambling for ingredients to make a curry. He combined the Tikka spices with a can of tomato soup and some cream and Voilà he had a mild fragrant curry. The customer loved it. No matter if you believe this or not, I'm sure you will love this recipe for the same reasons. I've paired down the ingredients of the Tikka paste to what I had in, plus what I've used in the past, so if you don't have an ingredient don't worry too much, just add something else.. I guarantee it will still work. 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
