Today’s recipe is a brilliant mid-week one – the cooking time is super quick, so no need to worry about suffering for long from those post-work hunger pangs. Advertisements
It’s been a while since I popped an Easy Dinner up on here. I got myself into a rather unhealthy routine in the run up to Christmas. There was an abundance of tasty choices in the fridge – namely a cheese board-worthy selection of fromage. I discovered the deliciousness that is blackcurrent jam and creamy … Continue reading Easy Dinners: Mid-Week Chicken Curry
Before I get going – I would like to announce that I just got half way through a ham and cheese roll before realising that the funky taste was in fact mould on the bread and not the cheese. So if this is the end of me, then please know that it has been an absolute … Continue reading Easy Dinners: Black-Eyed Bean Quesadillas
Trying to be healthy when all you feel like doing is curling up on the sofa with a bottomless reservoir of comfort grub is difficult.
Pasta was a go-to when I was at university. It’s cheap, quick, and easy. Which is all you really feel like at the end of a long day. In my uni days, and actually still now too, if I’m making dinner for me, myself, and I, it’s rare that I’ll do anything very extravagant.

And if you pop it in some fancy shmancy serving dishes, it can actually look quite impressive!
I used to make bean chilli ALL the time back in my university days. It’s super simple to put together, and this recipe makes bucket loads – so you can either feed your chums or freeze/refrigerate it for future consumption. I’ll quite happily make a batch at the weekend, and then live off it for the … Continue reading Easy Dinners: Bean Chilli
Another old favourite here. My mum has been making beef stroganoff for years, and this is my take on it. Perfect for those chilly winter evenings when you want a home-cooked meal, but can’t be bothered to wait hours and hours for a stew to simmer away.
I love a good beef stroganoff. It’s one of those wintery dishes that has all the charm of a tummy-warming stew, but minimal prep time. I wrote about my go-to stroganoff recipe last year, so you may be thinking why one could possibly need a second option. I wasn’t aware of any other way of … Continue reading Fiery Stroganoff
Feasting is a regular feature throughout the winter season for my family. There is just something about the combination of cold(ish) weather, and the seasonal festivities that bring about a need for warming, rich, feasts of delicious grub.
