This Easy Butter Chicken is ready in less than 15 minutes and requires minimal preparation. I always cook extra rice and freeze ready for when I need dinner fast.

Butter Chicken

Easy Butter Chicken

Many of the butter chicken recipes I have come across are pretty complex. They require multiple ingredients and long marinating times; some even require ingredients to be blitzed in a food processor. This one is made with the simplest ingredients, and I can have dinner on the table within 15 minutes. The flavour is so intense and delicious. Bite-sized pieces of perfectly cooked chicken in a creamy butter chicken sauce is the perfect recipe for a fast and easy dinner.

Slow Cooker Beef Pie Recipe

Is there anything more comforting than a delicious and warm pie? This is the ultimate comfort food with fall-apart tender beef in a rich gravy and a golden, crunchy puff pastry crown. The best part is that throwing the ingredients together is super quick, and easy to let the slow cooker work its magic. This is a real crowd-pleaser! 

Mussels with Tomato and Garlic Recipe

Mussels with Tomato and Garlic

If you’re daunted by cooking mussels – YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT SPOT! I PROMISE these are so easy to make. This is the perfect recipe for a date night in. I quickly took this photo while sipping a glass of bubbles and celebrating our wedding anniversary. To keep things simple, ask your local fishmonger for a bag of live black mussels that have been expertly cleaned and are ready to cook. I like that these bags display an expiry date, so you know you’re getting fresh seafood. I recommend the small black mussel variety over the large green mussels from NZ  for this recipe. They are sweeter in taste and softer in texture.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

It’s time to elevate the humble pumpkin soup! With its deep, toasty flavour, this roasted pumpkin soup is a must-try. Best of all, the recipe requires minimal chopping and preparation. It only takes ten minutes to prepare this delicious, warm and comforting meal. Then leave the oven to work its magic. I like to top it with a dollop of sour cream, finely chopped chives, chilli flakes and crusty sourdough bread on the side.

Pad Thai

Pad Thai

I absolutely love traditional Pad Thai. It was always a dish I would order out, and making it at home never appealed to me. Making it from scratch requires a few specialty ingredients that end up sitting in my fridge and not getting used up. I have tried many packet sauces, but none compare to the Ayam Hawker Pad Thai I use in this recipe. I have made this many times, and it is simple and quick to throw together with minimal effort. The best thing about it is how authentic and delicious the taste is.
