We love fajitas, but normally I've made them with chicken, using a pack. This recipe, though, is less hassle than using something like an Old El Paso kit - the prep is about the same, but then you just shove it in the oven and go do something else fo

OK, the name is a travesty, but it means I can easily find the recipe again. There's no Lasagne pasta in there. This is a variation of Mary Berry's Mexican Tortilla Bake recipe - essentially making it easier/lazier to make and boosting some ingredien

The local CO-OP sometimes has steak reduced - not necessarily brilliant cuts, but certainly good enough. As I've mentioned elsewhere, I love Peppercorn Sauce so serve up with the food absolutely drowning in it - you can of course use a little less if

I love the delicate flavours in Thai food, but I really don't like seafood, so I tend to struggle with things like Thai Green Curry - the fish oil in the sauce can leave me feeling quite quesy. However, this recipe strikes a good balance and hasn't c

This is based on a recipe from BBC Good Food. I've amended some of the ingredients, partly for convenience - I've also amended some of the cooking times as I prefer to let the bread pull up some of the juices rather than simmering them all off before

A fairly simple pasta meal that's a bit different to the usual sauces. Additional mustard can be added for more of a "burn", but the mixture of fennel and lemon works quite well if you don't overpower it.

I struggle with many Thai curries because they tend to have fish oil added, and I can't stand even the slightest hint of seafood. This simple recipe gives a fragrant, Thai-Style curry without that problem (though you can add it if you miss it) If you

Nothing goes together quite like Chilli and cheese, but there are so many different presentations that can be had at the same time. Tacos are quick and easy, and make a change from rolling your own burritos. You can go all out and make the chilli fro

Thanks to the Fresh Prince, everyone's heard of a Philly Cheese-Steak, but you can't get those outside of Philadelphia, so this recipe doesn't claim to be one. What it is, is a tasty steak, onion and cheese sauce sandwich. There are multiple variatio

This pot-roast pork loin comes out moist and succulent. It's not quite a replacement for a proper oven roast, but is a good meal in it's own right, and with much less effort going into timings. The joint is cooked in the oven for the last 40 minutes

This recipe gives some delicious moist chicken thighs, balanced by some soft and slightly tart plum pieces. If you add potatoes it can be served as a meal in it's own right, if not then serving with roast potatoes and parsnips works really well.

Bulgogi recipes tend to use crushed pear juice to help tenderise the meat, but using coca-cola works too (and it's probably easier to get). Marinade the meat overnight for best flavour. Variations on this are fairly easy, you can stir some chopped pe

I love Cottage Pie and Shephards pie. But a slow-cooked version of them leads to much, much softer mince and makes the house smell awesome all day Out of convenience, this recipe uses a couple of Shepherds Pie spice sachets - you can make the mix up
