This is my absolute favourite dish. Then again I have to say that as it's my wife's recipe. Some of the ingredients aren't traditional to a carbonara but wait to you try it. What makes it so special is that with every mouthful, you can taste every one of the ingredients.

Using a rich homemade cheese sauce with a touch of mustard makes a huge difference. This comforting recipe will have you returning for seconds... and thirds... just ensure you make plenty!

These pizzas are so easy, so adaptable and so much fun to make. Once you try this recipe, you'll never go back to supermarket frozen pizzas again. Homemade dough is so nice and the great thing is that you can literally put what you want on top.

Who doesn't love a pie? A buttery crisp puff pastry top that, when removed, reveals a heavenly thick filling. This is my tasty take on the classic Chicken Pie.

Some ingredients are just meant to be together and roast pork with cider is a great example. Pork tenderloin is such a succulent cut that it lends itself perfectly to the addition of a mushroom stuffing.

This is a dish that has suffered from being a student favourite containing only mince and cheap supermarket sauce. With a little care and attention though, spaghetti bolognese should be a dish that's the ultimate in comfort and packed with flavour.

This recipe entails just enough cooking to make you feel like a cook, but it's a true 'throw everything in' dish. Lamb shoulder, cooked until tender with chopped tomatoes and cannellini beans.

This is the ultimate comfort food. So rich, delicious and moreish. This recipe is for 4 people and is freezable, but I dare you not to go back for a second helping. Just don't expect to be able to walk for a while after!

This is a great recipe - homely, really tasty and perfect for a Sunday afternoon. The effort is really minimal - just chopping a few vegetables and throwing everything in a pot. Using chicken thighs rather than breast means that the meat will still be nice and juicy

This is a delicious chilli - perfect to warm you up and a great, easy recipe to make in larger quantities. You can serve the lot in a big dish in the middle of the table to share with family or friends, or divide it up into freezer bags to keep for a later date.

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.
