“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” ― Julia Child
Easy to make sausage rolls, great recipe for kids to help with, or add a few ingredients to make them that extra bit tasty. Great as a snack, for lunch boxes or picnics. My 5 year old son helped make the ones pictured here, and they were delicious!
I would love to take the credit for this recipe, but my husband suggested it and I am glad he did. The dressing goes so well with the salmon, and the carrot and pepper salad accompanies it brilliantly. Crunchtastic!
Or as my husband calls it – Posh Pasty. Delicious main course, that is so versatile. You can use any type of mince and vary the vegetables you use, depending what you have in the cupboard. I was surprised, (but really shouldn’t have been) that this dish tastes like a mince pasty – but better. [...]
Smoked mackerel can be an acquired taste, however the really strong taste can be mellowed a bit by adding yoghurt. This recipe was intended to be a way of getting kids to eat fish – but it is a tasty snack for adults too!
I didn’t want to cook the traditional grilled salmon, vegetables and potatoes (delicious as this can be) so decided to put them together as a topping for a jacket potato – the result was great! Hollandaise sauce on the top goes perfectly with the salmon. This dish has lots of textures, and is great made [...]
A delicious pork and apple dish. Braising simply means cooking meat or vegetables by lightly browning them in fat and then cooking them slowly in a closed pan with a small amount of liquid.

Another great recipe adapted from CBeebies Kids love making this recipe, and it is the most simple but tasty cheesecake I have made!
Basic version of this classic sauce that goes perfectly with salmon dishes.
An easy recipe and method for making shortcrust pastry.
400 year old recipe, and still tastes great! Why “Fidget” I hear you ask – well some sources say apples used to be called ‘fitchets’, some say ‘fitchet’ means 5 sided (as the pie often used to be) and others say ‘fitchet’ is slang for polecat – there are NO polecats in the recipe!
