Couple cooking.

Caesar salad shells

Quick and easy Caesar salad shells make an excellent snack, lunch, or starter.


Sweet potato hash

Sweet potatoes are rich in antioxidants, fibre, potassium, and vitamins A and C, making this a healthy, quick, and easy, lunch.

Stir Fry.

Tasty vegan stir fry

Love a good stir fry but have gone vegan, fear not, this tasty Chinese treat is entirely plant based.

Cornish pasty lunch.

Traditional Cornish pasty

The pasty is a much loved traditional warming treat. We don’t recommend eating them all the time, but they can make a warming occasional lunch, or cold on the go snack. Strictly speaking the only people that can make a Cornish pasty are people actually located in the county, as the name has protected status, however using this recipe you can make yourself a perfectly acceptable Yorkshire, Aberdeenshire, Flintshire, or County Down pasty!

Sausage rolls,

Sausage rolls

Looking for a warming snack for winter nights, or a tasty cold treat for picnics? Well the sausage roll might not be the healthiest snack around (we advise them as an occasional treat only), but it’s certainly versatile …and tasty!

Egg in a hole.

Egg in the Hole (‘V Eggs’)

Whether there is enough to this to consider it a recipe at all is debatable, but it is a really nice snack for when time is short! In the US they call it ‘toad in the hole’ (they don’t have the real thing). In our house, we call them V eggs, because the first time we saw it was in the film ‘V for Vendetta’.

Greek salad.

Greek salad

A Greek salad is a tasty but light starter, leaving plenty of room for the main course. Also you can prepare it earlier and throw it together when you’re ready, and left overs (remember to store without dressing) make good lunches if used up in the next couple of days.

Baked camembert

Baked camembert

Enjoy one of the best-known French cheeses in a delicious way, bursting with flavour and coated in breadcrumbs. Make sure the cheese is not too ripe and freeze before cooking to ensure the centre melts when baking.
