Crispy Sesame Chicken with a Sticky Asian Sauce

I think I need to get me some bees.

The amount of honey we go through on toast (Gracey's obsession) and in cooking makes we wonder why we don't have a honey store like Winnie the Pooh!

This crispy sesame chicken is another one for the honey archives. Sweet, salty, crispy, sticky and a little bit spicy - it covers all the bases for one of these meals that everyone polishes off. Not a scrap left.

Easy Chicken Curry

A quick curry that you want to whip up, without using ready-made pastes or sauces?



A quick and simple mild chicken curry recipe with bags of flavour. Ready in 30 minutes, it makes a great go-to mid-week meal for the whole family.

Freezer-friendly so you can make a big batch and save some for later.

Creamy Tuna Pasta Bake

It's an easy meal that everyone loves - made with mostly store-cupboard ingredients!



There's something about a pasta bake that just seems to make everyone so happy. Possibly the promise of a luxuriously filling meal, topped with cheese and oozing with some kind of sauce 😍.

This creamy tuna pasta bake is a store cupboard saviour. Pasta, sweetcorn, tuna fish - all make up the bulk of the meal. Frozen peas are a great addition too - but you can use canned or fresh if you like.

Apart from that, we're really just talking milk, cheese and a bit of butter from the fridge.

The Best Crispy Roast Potatoes

An essential component of any roast dinner! Plus tips on making ahead!



You know when you go to a restaurant for a sunday dinner, how disappointing is it when the roasties aren't crispy! They're just a bit browned and chewy at the edges, instead of having that satisfying crunch. So disappointing!!

Nope, give me homemade roasties any time. I want that crunchy exterior you can only get from fluffing up those edges and letting them bubble away in hot fat, with a fluffy, light interior.

And the crispy bits in the bottom of the roasting pan? I want those too. Eaten with a sprinkling of salt flakes.

They're the bonus bits. Salty, crispy morsels, that crunch all the way through when you bite into them.

Honey Garlic Chicken

his honey garlic chicken is so simple to make and it's ready in 20 minutes.



A classic combination of honey, soy sauce and garlic working together to produce a sticky, sweet sauce to coat golden tender chicken pieces.

I love to whip this up to serve over boiled rice for dinner, or as an easy addition to a homemade Chinese banquet. Check out my list further down the post for ideas to include in your homemade Chinese banquet!

Cheesy Pasta Bake With Chicken And Bacon

family favourite (and it makes great leftovers too!).



Cheesy Pasta Bake With Chicken And Bacon is one of those dinners that the kids can polish off in no time - regardless of how many veggies I sneak in there. Peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach - it all gets thrown in.

Sometimes I'll add courgette or kale. If I'm being extra sneaky I might add some finely chopped mushroom too (I'm the only mushroom lover in our house - but they all eat mushrooms if they can't identify them hee hee hee!).

I like it cold for lunch the next day too - although you can heat it up in the microwave with a tablespoon of water - to stop it drying out.
