BAKED SWEET POTATOES WITH CHEDDAR, BLACK BEANS AND GREEN SALSA

Baked sweet potatoes make for such a good lunch or dinner! You can make these ahead of time and just reheat things when you’re ready to eat. They take a little bit of time in the oven but you’re just waiting for most of that time – there’s not lots you need to do to make them delicious. You can read a book, dance round the kitchen, have a glass of wine etc while you wait for the oven to do it’s thing.

BAKED CHICKEN KIEV WITH HOME MADE WEDGES

Hey there 80’s classic I’m coming at you with both my wardrobe and my food right now. In terms of wardrobe there’s this pair of vintage jeans I own which are a stone grey with an elasticised waste, they’re sort of baggy and sit up high and I roll them up and sometimes wear them with platforms, a black silky cami and probably not a bra. They’re fantastic. Pretty much all men hate them, but I love them and that’s the part that matters. I also love Chicken Kiev and I’m bringing it back. Even if it’s only at my own table.

SPICED CRISPY KALE CHIPS

Kale chips, yes yes I’m a bit late jumping on this bandwagon but I swear I’ve been making them for years now. It’s just that I didn’t think my kale chips with just olive oil, sometimes chilli, and salt were ground breaking enough to share with anyone. Not that every recipe I share is always groundbreaking! Clearly not! But these kale chips are next level. I ate 2/3 of a bunch of kale in one sitting because of these. That’s a lot of kale, who does that?

BUFFALO CHICKEN AND RANCH SLAW SALAD

We’re getting a little trashy today! Buffalo chicken for the win. I love love love spicy things and buffalo chicken wings are the bomb. But they’re also not great for you… So I’ve tried to lighten things up a little here with a baked, not fried version of them. And they’re not wings, because I figured they weren’t going to be easy to eat in a salad bowl and this is essentially a ridiculous chicken salad.

GLUTEN FREE LAMINGTONS WITH RASPBERRY CHIA JAM AND CACAO ICING

These aren’t your usual lamingtons. The title probably gives that away! They’re gluten free, refined sugar free, made from wholesome ingredients and include a yummy layer of raspberry chia jam in the middle.

ONE PAN ROASTED CHICKEN WITH LENTILS AND FARRO

ONE PAN ROASTED CHICKEN WITH LENTILS AND FARRO 5I’m all about less cleaning up, so one pot dishes are my jam. This dish has so much flavour, great textures AND it can all be cooked in one pot. You don’t even need any bowls for prep. Just a chopping board, knife, and a dish to bake it all in. The flavours from the chicken make the lentils and barley so tasty and the apricots add just the right amount of sweetness.
