Easy Fish Pie

With the arrival of my aunt from New Zealand, I thought easy fish pie was something I could prepare ahead of time and just stick in the oven when I needed it. Now, this is barely a recipe as it involves very little cooking and much more assembling.  So it’s more of an exercise in purchasing […]

Stuffed chicken wrapped in prosciutto

This is a dish of my own invention!  So not particularly difficult then…. All I did was put of dollop of Le Roule cheese in a chicken breast and then wrapped the breast around to cover the cheese.  Then I wrapped each breast in 2 slices of prosciutto (but bacon, parma ham etc. would work […]

Nigella's Spanish Chicken - Olé!

It’s fiesta time in our house tonight!  Well, not exactly.  It’s been a long day and I needed to cook something easy, quick and very tasty.  This recipe is all of that – shove the ingredients into a roasting tin and pop it in the oven for an hour.  Out comes the delicious flavours of […]
