Banana Pie Rolls

We’ve all heard of apple pies and love them too. This is a twist on the classic using bananas to make Banana Pie Rolls. Yummy Banana Pie filling rolled in a thin rice pancake and fried to a crisp golden brown. Top it with ice cream and a sprinkling of icing sugar and eat away! This recipe is also great for when you have a bunch of bananas lying in the kitchen about to get spoilt. What more do you need?!

Leek & Mushroom Pastry

Whether it is home made pastry or store bought, the crisp and flakiness of the layers just go with anything with cheese. To make my leek & mushroom pastry a whole meal, I decided to add some of my favourite ingredients into the mix. I had to have mushrooms, leeks and rice, not to forget, a whole lot of cheese. I braided the pastry and brushed it with an egg wash to give it that beautiful golden design.

Tuna Fish & Brown Rice Cakes

Home-made fish cakes are so much better than store-bought. For one, they contain less artificial ingredients and secondly, home made are just more healthier using fresh ingredients and whole grain options. These Tuna Fish & Brown Rice Cakes are bold and richly flavoured. They are not just your typical fish cakes.

Chicken & Rice Pot Pie

Who doesn’t love a filling and flavourful pot pie? This is one dish that I first cooked for my husband, who at that time was just my boyfriend, and my father-in-law. My Chicken & Rice Pot Pie is a combination of chicken and vegetables mixed with a rich and creamy sauce and layered with a pastry that is baked to a nice golden and flaky crust. This version also has rice in it however, feel free to leave out the rice if you’re not keen on a very heavy meal.

Baked Salmon Stuffed With Mushroom Rice

This super quick dish is an easy baked salmon stuffed with a beautifully flavoured rice cooked with mushroom and capers. The salmon cooks very well in the oven to form a crispy skin which is a delight to eat with the soft rice inside.

Fish Fingers With a Simple Tartar Sauce

I love this classic combination of fish fingers and chips with my easy peasy tartar sauce. I do sometimes go the long way and make some mayonnaise from scratch, but sometimes I like to cheat too. So this is my quick and simple version, yet so delicious!
