For me this pie is heaven in a dish. Succulent slow cooked beef, rich guinness and puff pastry. It's really easy to cook, throw in the fact it uses the cheapest cut of beef, and you have a sure fire winner!

This is a lovely rich, creamy dish that's packed with flavour and really easy to make. By blending half the mushrooms, you get your very own mushroom sauce but still retain enough mushroom chunks to bite on.

A perfect comforting meal for a cold night, this fish pie is packed with flavour. Even if it's never been your thing, do give this version a try as it's such a homely, tasty dish with delicate herbs and creamy mash!

This is a great, tasty family classic. My take gives it a delicious flavour with lamb mince, a little kick of Worcestershire sauce and the subtle taste of rosemary running through it.

This is a proper dish to brighten up a cold winter day and is a great alternative to a Sunday roast. It's also a great example of the fact that beef doesn't need to be expensive, just cooked with a bit of TLC

Lasagne is such a popular dish, made evident by how many restaurants serve it! I prefer vegetarian lasagne as the meat is never the star of the show anyway. The best bit is surely the delicious sauce?! Made properly, lasagne should have three sauces - fresh tomato, rich white and creamy cheese.

Chicken is our nation's favourite for a roast dinner and this is my take on it. I love the sharpness of the lemon against the sweet honey flavour that runs through this dish. Crispy skin is a must and you won't be disappointed here

An American classic, hot wings are the perfect, if a little sticky, finger food and require no lengthy marinade. Delicious for a barbecue, picnic or served indoors with a nice salad.

When you cook lamb shanks slowly the result is incredible. The meat becomes so tender that it literally falls off the bone. It's a perfect dish for a lazy Sunday afternoon with a nice glass of red wine.

Turkey curry is our nation's favourite choice for Boxing Day.It's a creamy curry that is so easy to make, with mango chutney and sultanas creating a lovely fruity flavour to complement the slight heat of the curry powder.

This week, there are two original recipes on my newsletter which will make Christmas that little bit easier, and taste that much better! My Pork & Pickle Stuffing Balls and my Baileys Biscuits. The stuffing recipe is a great alternative to the traditional sage and onion - filled with pork, apple and chunky pickle, it has a real tang to it and is very easy and cheap to make. My very grown-up Baileys Biscuits have a good whack of alcohol and a delicious chewy, oat bite to them - naughtily moreish!

Throughout December, the theme for my newsletters is, not surprisingly, 'Christmas'! I have 3 great recipes for you this month, from my Grand Marnier Soufflé to Baileys Biscuits. So sign up for free today to get your recipes each week, along with valuable cooking tips for the festive season.
