Sesame Lamb Rissoles with Salad – a delicious rissole recipe, perfect for a quick weeknight meal.  I served them with a fresh veggie salad, but they could be teamed with almost any salad.

Pulled Beef Burgers with Chilli Mayo – I love to cook this meal on a day when I am pottering around at home, and can just leave the meat to slowly cook away. It’s a nice change to the traditional beef burgers I’d normally cook.

Paleo Fish Tacos – The perfect meal if you’re looking to up your weekly fish intake. We don’t follow a paleo diet, but these were delicious.

Thai Chilli Chicken and Basil Curry – I love to create meals with produce that’s in season because it makes for fresher cheaper meals. This dinner was inspired by my basil bush which is currently in full bloom. I teamed this dish with coconut rice, as they complemented each other beautifully.
