Feed Your Family For £20...In A Hurry! The Cookbook
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.

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.

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!
00Haggis NachosNachos are a classic sharing dish to serve up when watching TV with the family. Take some Tortilla chips, add some salsa,guacamole and sour cream...maybe some cheese and jalapeño's or chilli. But why stop there? They can be adapted to your local cuisine by adding one or more ingredients...in this case Haggis! which is a great alternative to mince in Scotland. It adds a lovely flavour and texture to the dish that I think you and the family will love. Don't like Haggis? Swap it for Black Pudding. This may be a good way of introducing Haggis into your repertoire if you've never tried it before. It goes really well with the dips and is definitely a new favourite in my house. You can buy the dips etc but why not make them (-recipes on the website-)then you can truly adapt this to suit your families tastes.Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below.

00Cheesy Cauliflower and Bacon BakeThis started off as a side dish but quickly became the main part of the meal. A tasty and speedy alternative to a roast dinner or for any day of the week for that matter. This can easily be adapted to suit your families tastes and budgets. Don't like cauliflower? Use Broccoli or a combination of both. Bulk it out with more veg if you like. You could even swap the bacon for Pork Steaks, Bacon steaks or just bacon off cuts .

00Rough Puff PastryRough puff pastry is a cheat’s way of making puff pastry, a QUICK AND EASY Puff Pastry, if you will. This only takes 30-45 minutes of your time (30 on a cold day and 45 on a hot summer day), and is just as good as classic puff pastry and tastes downright phenomenal! This method of making puff pastry takes short cuts, cutting down on the time it takes to make puff pastry – thus giving you a “rough” puff pastry.
00Cream of Spinach SoupThis soup was brought about by finding out what I didn't have in the freezer -which was a bag of frozen veg but I had a little bag of steamed veg and set about making it into a lovely lunch by adding little bits of this n that-some peas, some herbs,stock etc and 15mns later I had 2 filling bowls of this. The porridge thickened it and added some creaminess to it. The Spinach added fibre and the chilli a little heat. This can be adapted to feed 4 easily as it is very versatile. You too can easily adapt this to suit your families needs by bulking out with more stock,a little bit more vegetables or some chopped chicken, bacon or crunchy croutons. You can also use fresh or a bag of frozen veg if you prefer. 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
00Halogen Roast Duck with stuffing.Duck is not just to have with Chinese pancakes. Its a delicious change to your Roast dinner and is as easy to cook as a chicken. I used a chestnut,cranberry and sausage stuffing (recipe on the website) to fill the cavity but you can just use a standard packet of stuffing mix if you prefer. I served it with the usual accompaniments, roast potatoes, mash, vegetables and a French onion soup gravy that I added some cranberry sauce to. Soup makes a superb gravy and as its already prepared, is a great time-saver. This will be a guaranteed winner with the family. You can adapt it to suit your families tastes so why not give this a try. Let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
