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).

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!

An oldie but a goodie, aubergine parmigiana is a scrumptious side dish that I absolutely love. This is classic comfort food that’s perfect for serving to a crowd alongside a main meal, (although I’ll happily enjoy it for lunch with a fresh side salad too).

Yotam Ottolenghi’s “Plenty” contains a wealth of vegetarian recipes and is a fantastic resource not only for vegetarians but for those wanting to include more veggies in their diets. Stuffed inside my copy of the book is a piece of paper on which I’ve scrawled the names of the recipes I want to try out first… needless to say the list is rather long! These delicious leek fritters are from the “Funny Onions” chapter.
