Although more usually served with pasta, puttanesca sauce makes a great accompaniment for potatoes too!
Risotto is a regular in our house. It’s quick to make, tasty, hearty comfort food.
With this one I use my usual risotto recipe and add shredded turkey, goose, or ham leftovers and sliced and diced leftover bacon, salami or chorizo. This really is a ‘use-it-up’ dish!
This makes a great, healthy snack!
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.
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.

A lovely vegetarian salad, perfect for a lunch with some home baked bread, or as a side-dish with a main meal.
