What could be finer than an easy cheesy meal that’s on the table in 30 minutes or less? Well that was the challenge of last month’s Speedy Suppers, a blog event jointly hosted by Sarah Maison Cupcake and myself here on Feeding Boys. So be prepared to bookmark lots of these comforting recipes sent in […]

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 […]

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 […]

Creamy burrata with pomegranate

Burrata cheese with pomegranate and olive oil

I came across Burrata cheese for the first time at a cookery masterclass run by Finish dishwasher tablets with chef Florence Knight. The Leiths-trained head chef at Soho restaurant Polpetto might have been beautiful and tiny, but she was a steely sort so there was no messing around and any corner cutting like using a […]

How to make halloumi and mozzarella cheese

Making cheese

Mmmmm a big fat halloumi sandwich… imagine having the power to actually create the salty squeaky cheese that is peeking out of this bread by yourself… I never thought to try making my own cheese until I saw a demo at Lakeland over the summer and couldn’t believe how simple it looked. Lakeland kindly kitted […]

Cheesy potato quorn pot pies

Sponsored post Quorn is something of a hero product in the Feeding Boys kitchen, especially since the firefighter turned vegetarian nearly two years ago. So I was genuinely delighted when the brand got in touch with me to see if I would develop a recipe using their mince. Comfort food is top of the agenda […]

Review: Fig and Nut Boursin

Fig and Nut Boursin

Christmas party season will soon be upon us, and shortcuts to quick party canapes are a valuable weapon to have stowed in your fridge. I’ve been sent some fig and nut flavoured Boursin to try, and Matthew and I guzzled it quicksmart. Creamy cheese, sweet figs and crunchy nuts… it’s good stuff. We spread it […]

Spinach, leek and cheese pasta bake

Spinach, leek and cheese pasta bake

I found this recipe in October’s issue of BBC Good Food magazine – it’s the perfect one pot dish for a chilly autumn evening after the kids have got home from a session at the swimming pool. I can’t seem to find the recipe on their website, but as I modified it to suit our […]

Creme fraiche, lemon and pea linguine with soya meatballs

creme fraiche, lemon and pea linguine with soya meatballs

This is super quick to make, it’s very creamy but using half fat creme fraiche means you don’t have to feel too guilty about it. I used Sainsbury’s fake meatballs from their wonderful frozen meat free range. They’re really moist compared to some i’ve tried and you simply bake them from frozen for 20 minutes […]

Sweet potato and spinach lasagne

Lasagne is such a family favourite, that when our family became part-vegetarian the search was on for the ultimate non-meat recipe. After much trial and error I found a fabulous version in Lucy’s Food – one of my favourite cookbooks of 2011. Lucy devises menus for Ski World and filled this book with the recipes. The […]
