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 one of my favourite recipes and a perfect meal for a cold winter evening. The recipe uses pork tenderloin combined with the earthy flavour of beer, cooked until the pork is melt in your mouth tender.

The sweetness of the roasted butternut squash with the earthy mushrooms and lentils works so well. Throw in a good whack of fragrant basil at the end and top with a drizzle of truffle oil for the ultimate in richness.

Ditch the takeaway menu and try your own curry for a change! Homemade curries are so easy to make and taste fantastic... they're also far nicer than a jar.

Gently flavoured with cardamon and cinnamon, a Pasanda is warming but mild and a great alternative if you find yourself choosing Korma time and time again.

For a quick, easy and delicious meal look no further than this! A moreish bowl of creamy pasta with the gentle flavour of fresh basil running through it.

This is my take on the classic and is a really easy, fail safe version. Only taking 15 minutes of your time, this recipe is also so much healthier and tastier than a takeaway.

This is a really tasty healthy dish with the mix of veg creating really nice contrasting texture and flavours. Add in the the syrupy sweetness from the reduced balsamic vinegar and it's just fantastic.

This dish is like me, simple but effective! It's is great recipe that shows why you don't need 30 things on a plate. The chicken that gets wrapped in bacon and roasted works so well with the creamy onion flavour of leeks.

The heat of the chilli is offset by the creme fraiche, whilst the freshness of the coriander running through the couscous binds everything together.

This is a great dish for a quick weeknight meal. Homemade pesto is a delight. Not an E number in sight, the taste is so fresh and vibrant. The ribbons of tagliatelle pick up all the fresh flavours whilst the sausages add a lovely homeliness.

A delicious stir fry combining fresh healthy Asian flavours! There is so much going on in this recipe with coriander and ginger and the gentle heat of chilli.

This is a great weeknight meal. It doesn't take any effort to make, is super simple and super tasty. I love the risotto rice in this dish as it binds the whole thing together in a creamy delicious delight.

The chunky bits of salmon are the stars of this recipe. Cooked in stock, with the smokiness of bacon lardons and finished with single cream and chopped dill, this is a supremely tasty dish.

This dish is so lovely and rich. By slowly cooking the pork in the cider, the pork becomes melt in your mouth tender. Add in some iron rich spinach and creamy mash and you have the perfect dish for a cold Sunday afternoon.

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.
