It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve been drowning in admin and feeling like I’m being pulled in ten different directions all the time – it’s been hectic! The busy year end season has definitely started and now more than ever I need recipes that I can get on the table fast. Did I mention that they need to deliver on flavour too? A quick pesto pasta is definitely a great option for those crazy days (plus pasta = comfort food = happiness).

Hi foodie friends. Anyone else feeling slightly panicked at how quickly this month is going? The kids have just started their final term of school for the year, and it’s always jam packed so I’m bracing myself for that. Between school, recipe testing and book writing, house guests and two family birthdays (and I haven’t even thought about Halloween) there is a LOT going on right now, and I’m leaning on my repertoire of easy week night suppers more than ever to keep the troops fed and happy.

When I made this pie for the first time a few weeks ago the family really enjoyed it. We love chicken pie, and it’s been a while since I made something with phyllo pastry (I happened to have some in the freezer that needed to be used) so I put the two together in this very easy recipe – yummo!

Ah, I see the weekend on the horizon! We love Fridays around here. The end of the work week, no homework to worry about and a chance to kick back and engage relaxation mode. Friday nights are often movie night around here, and this pizza is regularly requested by the kids. As tempting as it is to rather pick up the phone and order in (and don’t get me wrong, we do that too!) this pizza is worth making from scratch and actually doesn’t require too much effort in terms of hands on cooking. It’s super delicious – perfect movie night food!

I’ve been making lots of galettes these last few weeks, they are my favourite thing to bake at the moment! The buttery, flaky pastry is easy to work with and there are lots of different toppings and flavours to play with. I also love the perfectly imperfect nature of galettes, and their rustic appearance.

We’ve enjoyed this meal a few times over the last few weeks, and if you’re a mushroom lover like us then I’m sure you’ll love it too. This meat free stroganoff is so creamy and comforting, and thanks to the texture and umami flavour of the mushrooms you probably won’t even miss the meat.

There is definitely a winter chill in the air! Bring on the boots, scarves, hot chocolate and cosy evenings by the fire, I love it all. Also, what better excuse to embrace comfort food (although if I’m honest I do that all year round) and dishes like this easy one pan chicken meal.

I recently got my hands on a beautiful new cookbook by Zorah Booley (creator of In The Midnight Kitchen). “The Everyday Low-FODMAP cookbook” is filled with delicious recipes designed around good gut health, to help soothe inflammation and reduce the symptoms associated with IBS. The book includes everything from comforting side dishes to breakfasts, easy meals to decadent desserts, and more. And with such a gorgeous selection of dishes no-one ever needs to feel left out or deprived when following the Low-FODMAP diet.
