00Salt n Chilli Chicken TraybakeWho doesn't love a traybake? Its a one tray meal that is full of flavour and is a great timesaver. It can be served as its prepared using all the ingredients or adapted to make 2 meals by removing 1-2 of the Chicken breasts after cooking and using for another meal-(these can then be added to pasta or sliced for a salad or sandwiches), then shredding the remaining breasts to make them go further. The choice is yours. The Spices make up enough for 2 portions so can also be used again. 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 00Garlic Mushroom Linguine with PrawnsThis dish is perfect for lunch or dinner as its so quick and easy. The combination of garlic,mushrooms and pasta is a base for most of my quick and easy dinners I must admit. I've added prawns but you can easily use chicken or chorizo instead or just leave it out all together. The choice is yours.

Then why not make them into a delicious dessert instead? This looks great, doesn't take a lot of time or effort and is fun to do. The children will love doing this with you. You can let your imagination go wild and create fun toppings or just keep it more traditional. The choice is yours. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x00Cowboy Pie LasagneThis was one of those - I fancy lasagne but have no mince so what can I use instead ? recipes. We are real advocates of substituting what you need for what you have. Hence the Hotdogs instead of mince and the beans instead of another tin of tomatoes. I bulked it out with a few regular sausages too but you can easily just use all of one kind if you prefer.This turned out delicious,filling and fairly cheap which again is our mantra. I think the kids will love it but its suitable for all the family. Its really just sausage and bean lasagne but Ive called it Cowboy Pie Lasagne as its more fun.

Roast beef, roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings are one of our favourite combinations, and once you’ve cracked how to make the perfect beef joint, you will never look back.
From lavish to thrifty, a hunk of roast beef spans all the budgets, and is simpler to cook than you think especially in the Slow Cooker as it does most of the work for you and no need to baste continuesly as you would in the oven. I've given the timings for a medium cook here but if you want it Well done -add an extra hour or Rare- subtract 1 hour. I've only added onions to the SC but of course you can add any other vegetables you like including potatoes. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below.

00Slow Cooked GammonGammon is a great staple to serve midweek and is relatively cheap. Even a small joint can feed 4 with enough scraps left over to add to soups or pasta. Most people think of poached egg or pineapple as an accompaniment but I love peaches.The sweetness cuts through the saltiness of the ham and they caramelise beautifully in the heat of the SC making their flavour more intense. This will be a family favourite I'm sure. 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 Pork StacksPork is sometimes thought of as dry so not everyone's favourite, but this recipe ensures its anything but dry. I used Loin steaks as they are economical but you could use chops or medallions. I also used my own stuffing (recipe on the website) but a pkt of stuffing is fine too. This is quite a substantial meal so its a good alternative to a Sunday Roast, but don't be afraid to cut it in half and serve in portions if you prefer- especially for the children where this amount of meat may be too much.. Its essentially a Pork & stuffing sandwich lol. This can be adapted 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 00Strawberry Cream PuffsPerfect for Mothers Day, Afternoon Tea or just as a wee treat. This is a quick,easy bake with minimum ingredients-perfect for the children to help with. Its adaptable too as you can use any jam you like or even chocolate spread if you prefer. The strawberries can also be swapped for raspberries or banana's. 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 00Butter chickenButter chicken is one of my favourite Indian dishes. It has a nice mild spice taste and is creamy without being over the top heavy. It is also simple to make which is a huge bonus! Enjoy!
