Peter’s Paella is a classic Spanish dish that the whole family will love. You can pack it with any number of vegetables, meat or seafood. The spices give the rice an authentic flavour. My father-in-law, Peter, is not Spanish himself but he has taken this on as his signature dish after the family visited Spain […]

Cold soup? Sure it sounds a bit strange to a culture that didn’t really grow up with it, but the Spanish can’t have been wrong for all these years! Gazpacho is an incredibly delicious offering, and just the thing for a light meal on a stinking hot day. I like it as cold as absolutely […]
Tempura is like the Japanese version of our fish and chips but infinitely better. The batter is so much lighter. Consequently, it won’t leave you with that queasy feeling people often get after eating greasy food. It is not reserved for fish and potatoes either. The Japanese deep fry everything: from green beans, eggplant and […]
Ben and myself are very lucky if we get to eat mango in our home. When mango season is here the kids run straight to the van as I drive into the driveway every Thursday afternoon shouting “are there any mangoes this week Mum?” I’ve since worked out the best away around this to make […]
When our lives get busy it is easy to fall back on ready made food. Luckily for me we have an amazing local cafe that makes delicious home-style pies and pastries which I often buy and freeze for crazy days. I recently bought the most delicious roast veg and egg pie there as a lunch option for myself and saw that they also sold them in a family size. It was simple to heat up in the oven at the end of a work day and serve with some steamed veg from The Organic Place.
It got me thinking I should try and replicate my own pie to freeze. Whilst there is a lot of cooking time, unless you’re using leftover roast veggies, it was very easy to make. This dish is great for Meat Free Monday or to be portioned out for lunches or even breakfast!
Spaghetti Bolognese is is a hit for everyone in our home. We all love it and for something that is so easy to cook the flavour is amazing. Ben and myself use to have competitions on who could cook the best version then one day Ben added all his secret ingredients (of which I hope he gives me for this recipe post) and what I think is the star of the show, beef ribs and he nailed it! And the longer you cook, the better it will be! I love to cook a big pot and freeze the leftovers for a busy day or for Ben’s lunches throughout the week.
