Chicken and Roast Pumpkin Pasta Bake

I’m not a fan of pumpkin so I rarely cook with it, but I must say I LOVED this Chicken & roast pumpkin pasta bake, it was delicious.  We will definitely make this again and perhaps add a little garlic to the cheese sauce.


Pan fried fish with roast potatoes and vegetables



Moroccan Chicken Salad

This Moroccan Chicken Salad really is the bomb. It’s flavours are crazy good and you’ll want to make it over and over again. Seriously. There are a few different elements to making this salad, but they’re all easy as!



Scrambled eggs on toast


BBQ Steak, potato bake and salad


Beef Macaroni

This Beef Macaroni recipe is a dinner that the kids will love, you can’t go past mince and macaroni.  Plus the bonus is you could double this easy dinner ingredients make enough to have it on toast tomorrow night!

4 ingredient Apple Slice

Banana Pecan Muffins

These muffins were delicious warm, very light and fluffy with a crusty top. Remove the nuts from these muffins so then they can be added to school lunch boxes.  Perfect for freezing.
