Speedy Suppers #6 and June Round Up


If you’re after quick and easy pasta recipes, i’ve got a tasty little run-down of the little gems entered into June’s round of Speedy Suppers.

Lemon and Mint Pesto with Tagliatelle

Lemon and Mint Pesto by

  A light and summery pesto of mint and lemon makes a wonderful quick sauce for a speedy pasta supper, or brushed onto fish wrapped up and baked for a hit of flavour. I blitzed up a whole heap of mint leaves with the zest of a lemon, some toasted pine nuts, Italian hard cheese […]

Lime, Mint and Chilli Chicken Kebabs

Lime, Mint and Chilli Chicken Kebabs

A simple marinade of lime, mint and chilli with a little olive oil and soft brown sugar transforms chunks of chicken thigh into glorious sticky and spicy BBQ treat. I prefer to use the dark meat on chicken as it’s far juicier with bags of tastiness. With all the South American flavours in my little chicken […]

I’ve had a bit of breathing space from work and i’ve finally got myself back in the kitchen for long enough to do a spot of batch cooking. The fridge was totally out of control with surplus amounts of random vegetables and Greek yogurt from the various recipe work i’ve been doing. It felt good […]

Weigh-in number four, and after a fairly naughty weekend, but clawing it back with a frugal week I dropped another two pounds. This brings my total weight loss to 11 pounds since I started four weeks ago. One more week to go of the challenge, but I plan to keep going for the rest of […]

I’m into my second week of taking part in the Weight Watchers #stepintosummer challenge, and drum roll….. I’ve lost five pounds! Very happy with that result, and long may it continue. The secret? First and foremost i’ve been keeping a food diary, so i’m far more aware of how much i’m putting away. I’ve eaten […]

Thai Spiced Yogurt Marinaded Pork

I’ve created a special recipe for Yogurt Week (19-25 May), an event created by The Yogurt Council to blow the horn about one of the UK’s favourite foods. Brits eat enough yogurt every week to fill more than 3.5 Olympic size swimming pools – that’s the same in weight as 737 double decker buses. That is […]
