This recipe is packed with flavour - it has a zingy crust and the subtle warmth of chilli running through the salad. I hope that you try this one because I think you'll love it.

This recipe combines two great fish - meaty cod and zingy, crispy whitebait. Round it off with a light watercress and potato salad and you'll be making it again and again.

Barbecues are often meat-heavy feasts so here's a great recipe for vegetarians or if you just fancy something a bit different. Sweet and juicy charred peppers are stuffed with delicious mushroomy couscous and sun dried tomatoes.

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!

There are just a few things that go wrong with risottos - under or overcooking the rice and the final consistency being too mushy. Normally you would laboriously add stock, a ladle at a time, however my recipe removes the effort as I've worked it out for you!

This dish is perfect for a weeknight after work. There's hardly any preparation and the whole dish takes just 10 minutes to cook.

Nothing epitomises 1980's cuisine more than the Chicken Kiev. My version, with delicious garlic and parsley butter and fresh light breadcrumbs, makes for a fantastic meal.

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 great vegetarian dish that's easy to do, tastes great and looks really fantastic. In that lovely puff pastry parcel is a large portabello mushroom stuffed with a mix of chopped mushrooms, ricotta and fresh thyme.

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

This is a great recipe for seafood lovers out there. The wonderful taste and texture of prawns are given a punch of chilli heat, balanced with the freshness of chopped coriander. This dish is a comforting bowl of food, yet still light enough for a summer evening.

The reason that I love this dish is because it's a little bit different and contains cannellini beans which are super healthy. There are loads of different textures and flavours going on, but no one flavour overpowers the dish.

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.

This looks like a dish you'd be served in a fancy restaurant but is really nice and easy to do. This recipe combines melt in the mouth goats cheese and poppy seeds with the lovely warm flavour of rosemary, all complemented by a rich and fluffy mushroom foam.

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.
