A simple and quick mid-week supper dish.
This is real comfort food. Perfect for a rainy autumn day. It’s warming and satisfying but freezes well so you can pull it out of the freezer to make a no fuss family supper. Serves four but, with the addition of a salad and some garlic bread, would serve six.
At last I have perfected this lamb kebab recipe! Everything that is wrong with a kebab is made right with this garlicky, spicy, meaty treat.
This is my adaptation of cottage pie – a true one pot family meal. You can swap a lot of the ingredients depending on what you have available, or what you enjoy eating.
If I’m feeding more than our usual hungry four, I add a couple of handfuls of lentils (pre-cooked and tender) but you could double up the meat if you like.
In January I think that I’ll never see another summer vegetable but then the warmer weather arrives and here we are at last with courgettes, salads, tomatoes and lots more, ripening and growing in the tunnel and outside in the garden.
This is my quick ratatouille recipe which is really a base for so many dishes and can be fancied up to be a meal in itself.
A simple but tasty mid-week supper recipe.

Borsch soup has been a staple menu item on the tables of Eastern Europe for centuries and is made using a wide variety of different vegetables. The version made with beetroot, which originated in the Ukraine, is the one with which we are most familiar in Britain.
Yorkshires are usually popular with the whole family and really complete a Sunday roast! This recipe has never failed me. Just make sure that the oil is really hot when you pour in the batter.
