A mug of nourishing roasted root vegetable soup with a spicy Thai kick to savour on a chilly day. Make a batch of this recipe at the weekend, and you’ll have some warming lunches to look forward to during the week. You don’t have to roast the sweet potato and carrots, but it does bring […]

Broccoli and Chorizo Mac and Cheese Pots

Broccoli and Chorizo Mac and Cheese Pots by Katie Bryson for Parentdish.co.uk

Macaroni cheese is one of my all time favourite family suppers, you just can’t beat it for a spot of autumnal comfort food. My mum’s macaroni cheese was always so inviting, especially when she popped some bacon on top with cheese and breadcrumbs and whipped it under the grill until it went crispy. Divine. So […]

Sausage and Sweet Potato Skillet Supper

Sausage and Sweet Potato Skillet Supper by Katie Bryson for Parentdish.co.uk

Skillet recipes are having a moment, it’s officially a thing. I put it down to the continuing obsession with the cooking habits of our neighbours across the pond in the US of A. That and Pinterest. But really,  a skillet has become a hipster foodie word to use instead of frying pan. Sounds funky though eh? Massive […]

Chicken, Sweetcorn and Broccoli Pot Pies

Chicken, Sweetcorn and Broccoli Pot Pies for Parentdish.co.uk on Feeding Boys

A great way to use up leftover roast chicken, these ultra tasty pot pies have a creamy filling and crisp criss cross pastry crust. I know it’s not got cold yet, but i’m still in the mood for autumnal comfort eating. So with this in mind i’ve been experimenting in my kitchen, coming up with […]

Veggie Packed Lasagne

Veggie Packed Lasagne on feedingboys.co.uk

A hearty vegetarian family supper using Quorn mince and borlotti beans to pack the protein in, and a whole bunch of lovely vegetables blitzed into the sauce. My boys love vegetables, but if i’m making a sauce for pasta they prefer it smooth. The texture of food can be a touchy subject – so if […]

Roasted Tomato and Basil Filo Quiche

Roasted Tomato and Basil Filo Quiche by Katie Bryson on feedingboys.co.uk

I’m a huge fan of the quiche, but i’m really trying to be mindful of my diet at the moment. Pastry, cream and cheese are delicious, but can leave you feeling bloated and uncomfortable. So i’ve given my favourite pastry dish a lighter makeover, hopefully without compromising on flavour. I adore the crispness of filo pastry, […]

An easy but impressive pasta dish that’s great for a weekend lunch with friends. It’s a Gennaro Contaldo recipe for the Good Food Channel website that was part of the Spring photoshoot I cooked for last month. I got a bit stressed about not being able to source giant pasta shells, so in the end my […]

Lemon, honey and mustard chicken drumsticks

Lemon, honey and mustard chicken drumsticks by Katie Bryson for Parentdish.co.uk

These chicken drummers are simple to prepare, have bags of flavour and can be served up with any number of sides depending on your family’s tastes. I think they go well with crusty bread to mop up the juices and a big bowl of fresh green salad, but they’d be equally at home with fluffy […]

Endives au Jambon

Endives au jambon

Now before you get confused and think i’ve started focussing on French Cuisine, I’d like to introduce my lovely friend Hélène who writes over at the very lovely blog Croque-Maman. I met Hélène on the food photography course at Leiths before Christmas, and we instantly bonded fiddling with camera settings and composition. Turns out the […]

Spicy Thai noodle soup

Thai noodle soup on feedingboys.co.uk

A tasty Thai inspired soup packed with noodles and pak choi in a light coconut milk, ginger, lime peanut butter and coriander broth… The firefighter’s shifts have meant he’s been around daytimes during the week lately, so i’ve been celebrating this fact by making an effort with bounteous lunches. I spotted a fabulous looking Thai […]
