This all-in-one parcel is a really easy way to cook and serve dinner.




200g new potatoes

120g mixed frozen veggies

2 salmon fillets, skinned

zest and juice of a lemon

25g butter




Pre heat oven to 200C/gas 6. Cut 2 large squares of kitchen foil, about 30cm by 30cm each.

Boil the potatoes until just tender. Drain and halve or quarter, depending on size. Boil the veggies for 3 – 4 minutes, then drain.

Divide the potatoes and veggies between the squares of foil. Put a piece of salmon on top. Add lemon zest and juice and a small knob of butter to each. Season to taste with black pepper.

Wrap up the foil to make 2 parcels, leaving room inside for the air to circulate. Fold to seal the edges tightly.

Serve in the parcels.

Pizza 1


This one is a quick recipe that involves no more than mixing a few basic ingredients and patting the dough into the pan. No need to wait for the dough to rise with this.




375g/13 oz plain flour

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp sugar

75g/1/4 oz dried active yeast

2 Tbsp olive oil

225ml/8 oz warm water




Pre heat oven to 190C/gas 5.

Combine flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a large bowl.

Mix in oil and warm water.

Spread out the dough on a large pan, or 2 pans and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and add your favourite toppings.

Turn oven down to 175C/gas 4 and bake for a further 20 – 25 minutes, keeping an eye on it as it might need turning halfway through baking.


Quick Brownies August 9, 2012

These are delicious and only need a few ingredients.




1 1/3 cups of biscuits crumbs, digestive or rich tea are good

1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips

4 1/2 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted

1 (14oz) can condensed milk




Line a 9 ins square tin with parchment paper. Heat the oven to 175C/gas mark 4.

Blend the melted butter with the condensed milk.

Stir in the biscuit crumbs and the chocolate chips. Pour the dough into the prepared tin and spread it out evenly.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown and slightly puffy. Leave to cool completely then cut into about 16 bars.


Tip: Don’t turn all the biscuits into too fine a crumb, it’s nice to have some small pieces in there too.

If you find you don’t have any chocolate chips the day you decide to make these, just get a hammer, as I did, and whack a chocolate bar a few times πŸ˜‰
