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.

Be prepared to have your preconceptions challenged. Lentil stew might not sound the most appetising of recipes but try this one and you'll be amazed at just how much flavour there is. This recipe is unbelievably healthy and really easy to do

These delicious fish cakes are the result of lots of testing! Different fish, different herbs, until I found the perfect balance. Tasty salmon with soft fluffy potato, the hint of heat from the chilli, and the freshness of coriander.

This lovely, simple recipe replaces pasta with courgette strands and contains only 294 calories per person. Succulent grilled salmon with a punchy tomato sauce, on a bed of gorgeous courgette spaghetti. This is food that tastes good, looks good and is good for you!

This recipe is the epitome of simplicity and it's so quick to make. Succulent steak & fresh tagliatelle bound together with melted butter that's infused with the beautiful aroma of chopped fresh rosemary.

This is a proper classic. The creamy peppercorn sauce works so well with a succulent steak. If my wife would allow me, I'd eat this every day!

This dish will get your taste buds going. The fragrant butter infused with thyme, melting over a perfectly cooked steak into creamy cabbage is a great indulgent quick dish.

My sticky chops are infused with a gooey mix of lemon, thyme and honey. The flavours go great with pork and they couldn't be simpler to prepare. These chops are great to throw on the barbecue or pop in the oven and serve with a nice salad.

This is the ultimate after work meal that's nice and healthy too. Cod fillets are taken straight from the freezer and there's almost no preparation. The martini adds a great sweetness against the iron-rich spinach. Light, delicate and flavoursome

This is a perfect example of how healthy low-fat food doesn't need to be bland and boring. What could be better than a guilt-free version of the takeaway favourite - sweet and sour chicken? My version contains virtually no fat and has the taste to rival any takeaway.

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.
