Spiced Fish with Basmati Rice.

This dish is so simple to prepare my daughter the “starving artist” tells me she “whips this dish weekly!”… Mmmm?

Cottage Pie with Garlic and Rosemary Mash

Cottage Pie is total comfort….enjoy!

Chilli Prawn Tartlets

This is a great party stand-by! You can make the tartlets in advance and store in an airtight container. The filling can be made the day before.

Lamb Pie with Feta Mash

I love a boozy pot pie! I had mine with beef, as lamb is my mortal enemy and it tasted wonderful. The only tip I have is not to buy pre-crumbled feta, as like all cheeses that are pre-grated/shredded they can loose a lot of flavour.

Barbeque Chicken with Honey Mustard Vegetables

I consider honey mustard chicken part of the family! My youngest daughter was a “selective” eater but when I served her this dish she didn’t eat it she inhaled it, so I new I was on a winner. These vegetables are also good served for Christmas Lunch as they taste amazing along side glazed ham and pork.

Pork and Pineapple Red Curry

The secret to a good curry is to let the flavours party in the pan before you add the liquid, more importantly do not add more curry paste after you have added the liquid.Curry paste has to be cooked down, you know how much heat your taste buds like so adjust accordingly at this stage.Remember the sauce is the star so as your cooking you might feel it needs more lime, sugar or fish sauce etc so taste, taste, taste!!

Lamb Cutlets with Red Currant Sauce

This dish is easy to make ! I had it with a small fillet steak as I am not a big fan of lamb and all of the flavours still worked well together even though my husband and any Kiwis following my blog would beg to differ!
