Uplifting Spinach, Mint and Lemon Soup

Spinach, mint and lemon soup

With a relocation 300 miles north underway and the start of the Birds Eye campaign, my life is more than a little hectic right now. Simple recipes are definitely how I’m rolling. Minimal ingredients and short cooking times but something that’s going to fill you up and feel nutritious. Soup is the food you turn to […]

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Tagine

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Tagine by Katie Bryson

First of all – Happy New Year everyone! I’m SO sorry it’s taken me so long to post my first recipe of 2015. Feeding Boys still looks like it’s Christmas, when all everyone wants to do is cut back on the calories… ooooops! Well there is a good explanation for this. We’re in the middle […]

Sweetcorn, Carrot and Coriander Fritters

Sweetcorn, Carrot and Coriander Fritters by Katie Bryson for Parentdish.co.uk

Quick and crispy veggie treats, these sweetcorn fritters give an autumnal evening a little golden glow.

I want to build up a selection of videos showing you first-hand how to make some of my favourite family recipes. I started with home-made pizza, and this week it’s time for the trusty puff pastry tart to make an appearance. It really could not be any easier to put together… and here is the […]

Video: how to make pizza

Home made pizza

I’ve been making my own pizza every week since I discovered how easy it is to rustle up a couple of generous pizza bases using a packet of bread mix from the supermarket. I wrote a post about it before Christmas, but I’ve now made a little video to show you just how easy it […]

If there’s ever a time for one pot recipes that you can sling in the oven with minimal fuss, then it has to be now. First week back after half term and we’re all trying to adjust back into functioning on a schedule, rather than schlepping around in PJs for the best part of the […]

Mushroom and halloumi burgers

Mushroom and halloumi burger

Burgers used to be the firefighter’s absolute favourite food. Even if we were at a really swishy restaurant he would still order a big fat burger. But with the horse meat scandal in full swing I’ve never felt more glad that we don’t eat much meat in our house anymore. Matthew turned vegetarian nearly two years […]

Cheesy potato quorn pot pies

Cheesy potato quorn pot pie

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 […]

Simple home made pizza

Christmas Tree Pizzas

I put pizza on the table every week for the boys. It’s one of THOSE foods, you know, the cherished ones that they’ll eat no matter what and takes 10 minutes to cook. For too long though, have I been putting up with the crappy supermarket versions because I’m too befuddled to think about faffing […]
