Lemon and Mint Pesto with Tagliatelle

Lemon and Mint Pesto by Feedingboys.co.uk

  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 […]

Healthy mushroom soup

Healthy mushroom soup by Katie Bryson on Feedingboys.co.uk

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 […]

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 […]

Cheese and apple quesadillas

Cheese and apple quesadillas by Katie Bryson for Parentdish.co.uk

After school snacks are essential in my house, if calories don’t get injected into my boys as soon as they’re out of the playground we get meltdownage, and I mean BIG TIME MELTDOWNAGE ON A THERMO NUCLEAR SCALE. Arlo is still adjusting to his first year of school, and being a summer baby the tiredness […]

Creamy tomato rigatoni with veggie meatballs by feedingboys.co.uk

I’ve created this quick and easy vegetarian family supper to celebrate the release of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 on Blu-Ray and DVD on 17th February. I wish it would rain meatballs… it would make a very pleasant change to all this chuffing rain that is making us all so damp and miserable. My […]

Leek and cheddar quiche with coleslaw

Leftover Lunches: Leek and cheese quiche with crunchy coleslaw

A comforting lunchtime treat of shortcrust pastry tart filled with buttery leeks and mature cheddar with a light crunchy coleslaw on the side. I’m still on a mission to banish boring lunchtimes, and have been working in association with Vouchercodes.co.uk to develop a recipe for under £10 that not only perks up a dismal January […]

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 […]

Crispy filo Greek cheese pies

Greek cheese pie

We’re just back from a dreamy week on the Greek island of Zakinthos aka Zante, vivid blue seas, shingle beaches, and delicious delicious food… the culinary highlights as always were the juicy tomatoes and feta cheese, tzatziki, kebabs, greek yogurt drizzled with honey on top of freshly cooked waffles, baklava and of course, Greek cheese […]

Chard and sunkiss tomato pesto

Making chard and sunkiss tomato pesto

I appreciate this looks like a jar of pond sludge, but I can hand on heart tell you it tastes fabulous! Punchy and fresh it’s equally at home stirred into pasta, as it is spread into a goats cheese sandwich or even as a dip with carrot and celery sticks (and kettle chips for that […]
