Hotdogs – an incredibly quick and easy meal that kids and adults both seem to love! You can jazz yours up with extra fillings like this one, or stick the classic hotdog with cheese, tomato sauce and mustard. I do love the addition of potato chips as a side to the hotdogs.

Chicken Finger Wraps – this one is a regular on the dinner table in my home! It’s such a simple dinner idea, and easy enough for the older kids to help make (my teenagers can cook this for themselves now).

Salmon and Avo on Toast – when you’re in the throws of a busy week, I am all for simple meals! Salmon, avocado and feta on toast with a little lemon and pepper is so easy and tasty! This option with a poached egg looks pretty delicious too.

Banana Yoghurt Loaf Cake – one of my lovely long serving supporters shared this recipe with me, and it is so yummy! He puts the freshness down to the use of greek yogurt instead of oil and butter.
