Sunday Lunch – Roast Lamb and Garlic Crushed Potatoes

This recipe is probably my favourite type of Sunday roast lunch or dinner. Slow cooking a good quality shoulder of Lamb in Rosemary, Garlic and Red Wine is a delicious way to enjoy flavoursome and tender meat and it’s really simple as the gravy makes itself in the pan! Get a good quality joint –…

French-Style Summer Roast Chicken

I like this dish because it’s nice to have a roast dinner on a Sunday afternoon (and in this case a chicken with crispy skin as it is one of my favourites), but in the summer a full winter roast can feel a bit rich, heavy and stodgy. So this, I think is a great…

Lean, Mean, High Protein Omelette

I eat omelettes a lot. For breakfast, lunch and post gym workouts. They are so versatile that you can adjust and personalise them as you wish. Add meat or fish and they are very high in protein, contain good fats and I also chuck in a load of green veg and mushrooms too. You can…
