Chicken Enchiladas – Chicken Enchiladas are one of our family favourite Friday night dinners, I think I say this all the time when I share a mexican recipe, but we truly do love anything and everything mexican in our household. I love that this recipe is so quick and easy to prepare, with the option to poach your own chicken or skip this step and save a few minutes and buy a BBQ chook.
Ricotta Gnocchi with Eggplant Sauce – My kids helped, boy the kitchen got messy, but we had a lot of fun making dinner together
Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon – Typically mac and cheese is just that, macaroni and cheese sauce, but my kids love a little bacon flavour and crispy breadcrumbs on top.
