Flattened tandoori roasted chicken Dine in

If you haven’t done a “flat-roast” chicken yet, now is your time! The chicken cooks more quickly compared to the traditional method and the meat still stays moist, so it’s perfect for a school night dinner. This recipe for tandoori roasted chicken is super simple to pull together and if you have time, prepare the chicken the day before so it can marinate for extra flavour. Kitchen scissors are best to cut out the backbone of the chicken, you can google for a video or follow my pretty basic instructions. Put the whole chicken breast down on a chopping board...

Chilli con carne with coriander cornbread Dine in

Winter is the best time of year for slow cooking and I love it even more when I can cook everything in one pot in the oven for hours, warming the house and scenting the air (and clothes… and hair..!) with the delicious smells of dinner. The warming spices of this chilli con carne are mellowed by the crusty cornbread top which you can use to mop up the gravy. I think there are enough vegetables in this dish for it to be considered a meal, but a side of guacamole doesn’t go astray particularly if you have over-chillied the...

Slow cooked massaman curry with lamb shanks Dine in

This is the ultimate slow cook dish for winter – lamb again, I know… but it’s a lovely twist on a more traditional beef massaman curry. Massaman curries are not as spicy as traditional Thai curries can be, but it’s still full of flavour and delicious. There are plenty of recipes for home made spice pastes around and when I have the time I love to make my own. However, sometimes I just want to rely on a good curry to save time, but not compromise on flavour! Maesri make heaps of different varieties of curry paste and they are...

Greek lamb and lemon potatoes Dine in

Butter soft lamb served with lemony garlic potatoes. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, it should be! I have made these recipes a couple of times now and I recommend you find an occasion to serve it yourself. Soon! I make both the lamb and potatoes the night before so on the day of the dinner I just need to remove them from the fridge and then put them in the oven. So easy! So good! Served with a greek salad or greens and you have a super delicious dinner… so good there probably won’t be leftovers. Greek lamb Ingredients 1...

Showdown mushroom omelette Dine in

Cooking omelettes have traditionally been Stu’s domain as one thing he offers to do for me (in addition to always asking me if I want floss when once a week he heads upstairs at 8.30pm to grab said floss so he can multitask while watching GoT). Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of Stu’s omelettes as they always have absolutely everything he can find in the fridge. Bacon, spinach, mushroom, capsicum, cheese, tomatoes plus a huge number of eggs to bind it all together. It ends up being a massive egg stew (!) on my plate which I have no hope of finishing. We usually...
