Chicken & Bacon in a Rich Cherry Tomato Sauce

Dinner doesn’t come much easier or tastier. This is a regular in my home as it is really quick and easy to do plus I usually have all the ingredients already. I advise getting all the ingredients ready and have them to hand before you start cooking. Use a tin of regular chopped tomatoes if […]

Pappardelle with Mushrooms, Basil & Chilli

This quick vegetarian dish is so tasty and uses creme fraiche instead cream so it is that bit lower in fat and so better for you and your family. It is important that you saute the mushrooms enough to release the flavours which will make the dish extremely tasty. You can also add finely diced […]

Beef Lasagna

A good, homemade lasagne is such a warm, hearty dinner. Egg lasagne sheets are a little bit more expensive but taste better and I think they’re worth it. This dish is brilliant for freezing, so you could also double the portions and freeze some for another day.

Tagliatelle Carbonara

CARBONARA is easily the most popular pasta dish in the world. I have seen it served from Ireland, to Germany, Australia and even in Hong Kong. Unfortunately most restaurants and chefs haven’t got a clue how to make a proper one. Being a big bacon and cheese lover I really love a good carbonara when made […]

Beef Cannelloni

THIS is a pretty simple dish to make and one I am sure you and your family will love. You can finely chop a carrot or two and hide them in the meat sauce or do as I did and use a pepper. The tubes are pretty easy to fill if you allow the meat sauce […]

Pasta Bolognese

Always a family favourite this is far nicer than anything from a jar, it is also way cheaper and far better for you and your family. Remove or add veg to suit your tastes, I used carrots, peppers and mushrooms. Smoked rashers are great in it as well. I choose to make handmade pasta for […]

Lobster Ravioli Saffron Cream

In my opinion you can’t beat handmade pasta and ravioli is one of my favourites esp when filled with something as nice as lobster. This dish may seem daunting but believe me, it really isn’t difficult at all. You can order fresh lobster from your fishmongers but there really is no need to put yourself […]

Tagliatelle, Shaved Asparagus and Poached Egg

This simple dish is very easy and quick to make and makes a great lunch. It isn’t at all heavy, in fact it makes a refreshing, tasty meal. I used fresh egg pasta, you can use dried but try to get a good quality one if you do. Due to there being no sauce in […]

Prawn Linguine

Linguine with Prawns, Chilli & Garlic

Linguine is like spaghetti only slightly flatter so not as rounded. It goes great with seafood especially crab and prawns. This is a really easy dish to make and doesn’t take much time at all so makes a great lunch or even a dinner for those days when you are too busy to make something […]

Pasta Dough, Basic Recipe

If you haven’t tried to make your own pasta, then you really should give it a go, all the kneading can be hard work but is easy to get right and is well worth the effort as nothing else comes close to a good homemade pasta, I have never had any packet pasta, fresh or dried that […]
