Philly cheesesteak traybake with PGI Welsh Beef

Disclosure: This is a commissioned recipe post for PGI Welsh Beef The way to my heart has always been through a good steak, which is why I have created this Philly cheesesteak traybake as a Valentine’s meal! Philly cheesesteak is an iconic food from Philadelphia- a combination of steak, peppers and onions served up in a ‘hoagie’ with melted cheese. I’ve foregone the bread roll, and created a mouth-watering version that is quick and easy to make, and a guaranteed crowd-p...

Herby lentil & potato stew

A recently published study by the World Health Organisation concluded that eating more fibre reduces the chance of heart disease and early death. I've been conscious of how much fibre my family are getting in their diets since a relative contracted diverticulisis a few years ago following a switch to a low-carb diet.  The recommended daily portion of fibre for an adult is 30g, and for a child (aged 5-11) is 20g a day. That is actually quite a lot of fibre to fit in per day, and I've been ...

Easy chicken, pesto and orzo traybake

If you haven't come across orzo before, it's a very small, rice-shaped pasta that is very quick to cook. This makes it ideal for traybakes because you don't need to leave everything in the oven for ages whilst waiting for the pasta to cook.   This is such a simple recipe, doesn't take a lot of ingredients, and is very family friendly. If you are following Slimming World, the only syns come from the pesto, which usually has around 3 syns per tbsp. The great thing about traybakes ...

Easy one-pot BBQ chicken

I had some sweet potatoes and some chicken thighs that needed using up this week, and BBQ chicken seemed like the obvious way to go- I often make this type of dish in the slow cooker, but I wanted a quick, weeknight version of this. I love the combination of chicken and bbq sauce, one of my favourite treat meals is Hunter's chicken. Served with sweet potato fries, some baby corn and any other veg that you fancy (peppers go well too), this is like a Texan treat meal, but is wholly healthy...

Slow-cooker beef brisket with rich onion gravy

I love beef, and particularly when it is slow-cooked- that tender, fall apart texture can't be beaten! Beef brisket is one of the cheaper cuts to buy because it does require a long, slow cook, but you really can't beat it, and it makes a fantastic Sunday roast centrepiece that actually requires very little effort! I picked up a piece of beef brisket in Tesco's a little while ago as it was on special offer, and I really wanted to try something different to anything I had cooked before ...

Slow-cooker Chinese pulled pork

I bought a pork shoulder in Morrisons a couple of weeks ago, intending to make a classic pulled pork recipe- I didn't get around to it, and then a friend threw her husband a 40th birthday party that had an AMAZING hog roast, and then gave me a whole leg that was left over! We were just about to head off on holiday, so I took off the meat and managed to squeeze most of it into my jam-packed freezer (I desperately need a chest freezer- just not sure where to put one!). By that point I had ...

Steamed jam sponge mug cake

I recently introduced my 8 year old to mug cakes, and she was blown away- she just couldn't believe that you could achieve such a good cake in just a couple of minutes! I was testing out a few recipes in my new microwave (read about it here!). I made a full fat and sugar chocolate mug cake for my daughter ( I used this recipe), and then I experimented with a Slimming World friendly version, using my healthy extra B oats. The only extra step you have to go through here is that rather ...

Carrot and coriander soup

Carrot and coriander soup has always been one of my favourites- it's a fuss-free and easy soup to make, it's suitable for the whole family (my fussy children will eat it!), and it's also a great cheap soup to make in bulk. Carrots are one of the cheapest vegetables to buy from the supermarket and with just a few little additions make a delicious, rich and creamy soup that is also healthy and low in fat. I don't worry about peeling the carrots for this, as it's going to be blended anyway, ...

Roasted ratatouille soup

If you've tried my Easy roasted ratatouille recipe then this may seem familiar. I love making a big batch of ratatouille because it's such a versatile dish- I serve it as a side to lots of different meals, on its own with freshly baked bread and pureed as a pasta sauce! It also makes a fabulous soup- the rich flavours from the roasted vegetables work so well as a soup. If you make up a nice big batch and freeze into portions it makes a lovely easy lunch, and if you want to add some ...

Slow-cooker honey garlic chicken

It just takes 5 minutes to put together the sauce for this easy and delicious honey garlic chicken, a simple combination of ingredients, slow-cooked with chicken breasts which are shredded into sauce at the end of cooking. Perfect served with egg-fried rice, stir-fried vegetables and smothered in spicy sriracha.
