Thermomix Devilled Sausages – this is an affordable meal for filling up the troops! It’s tangy sweet and an absolute hit in my household. I love to serve mine with creamy mashed potato. If you haven’t got a Thermomix, you might like my Sausage Stroganoff recipe instead.

Bruschetta – who says you can’t have breakfast for dinner?! Bruschetta is a lovely, fresh, and healthy option for nights when you’re wanting a simple and light dinner idea.

Bacon, Leek and Corn Risotto – a super easy melt-in-your-mouth mid-week meal. I served mine with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and a side of crunchy garlic bread and it was delicious!

Sausages on Bread – you don’t get much easier than sausages on bread, and it seems to be a favourite for most kids! You can also jazz up this dinner idea with caramelised onions and parsley (like in this recipe below).

Curried Salmon Rice Pie – whilst this may seem like a winter dish, I could eat this pie all year round! It is a rice crusted pie, with a layer of salmon over the base with a creamy curry sauce and sprinkle of cheese over the top.

Takeaway – because we all need a night off every now and again – LOL!


Roast Chicken and Veggies – I love one dish dinners – particularly on a Sunday night when the last thing I feel like doing is the dishes. This is an easy, healthy, and yummy meal to end the week with.

Coconut Raspberry Loaf – I have been making this Coconut Raspberry Loaf for years. It’s one of those easy mixes that can be easily whipped up in a mixing bowl with a spoon. There’s no need to get out the heavy mix master which makes cleaning up a breeze.
