I love Monday leftover lunches and baked bean and potato pie is hard to beat. Homemade baked beans with mashed up baked potatoes.
Honey and mustard chicken, roasted new potatoes with rosemary and sea salt, green salad and yogurt dressing. This is a simple midweek meal that ticks all the boxes. About 12 years ago (before kids) this was one of my go-to midweek summer dishes. We were living in London and particularly after a long day and […]

This is and easy no hassle chilli. Chicken and Aubergine Chilli makes a great change from a beef chilli. Also there are loads of vegetables in there, stealing all the glory. I know this goes against most other recipes and traditionalist will say that chillis should be made in a pot. However don’t knock it […]
Bacon chilli is quick to make, cheap and tastes amazing. Kids love it and it’s a great alternative to beef chilli.
School night noodles
