It’s fascinating how every week as I plan out the meals for my family, I find myself consistently gravitating towards dishes that incorporate some form of ground meat.
Pies are a cherished family tradition in our home - everyone has a soft spot for them! They make a great snack or packed lunch for my daughters.
Greece is known for its tasty vegetables and beetroots are no exception.
Why buy veggie burgers, with great lists of unknown ingredients, when making your own is so simple? That’s what I think anyway, since I tapped into this particular recipe.
Sometimes indulgence is the only way forward, and this carb fest is a real treat! Makaronopita, or Greek pasta pie, uses indulgent pastry, pasta, evaporated milk and feta cheese to ensure no stone is left unturned on your journey to the ultimate in comfort.
As you may know by now, I’m a veggie - but the rest of my family aren’t! Although they’re happy to eat tasty veggie meals a lot of the time, they sometimes ask for meat.
This simple and tasty feta pie is best straight from the oven, whilst it’s still crisp-edged, buttery, and warm.
These spinach and feta galettes are a mouthwatering veggie breakfast, or lunch, to satisfy and satiate.

This crustless zucchini pie is the perfect lunch for a sunny day in the garden.
This pasta salad is such a simple dish that it barely needs a recipe; that’s part of the reason I love to make it! The second reason is that it gets some nice veggies into the kids’ diet without any fuss - they love pasta in every form.
As the only vegetarian in the family (and I don’t just mean out of my husband and daughters - I mean every family member on both sides!) it sometimes seems like I can be an extra burden when it comes to catering.
I like to make a good old spinach pie, a Spanakopita, but this mixes up that old favourite into something new.
This whole wheat breadsticks recipe is what we use to keep hunger at bay in our house! Instead of a bag of crisps, we’ll nibble on a wholegrain breadstick whilst watching TV, or whilst dinner cooks in the oven.
Sometimes we all need an evening in front of the TV; a sofa night watching a film is sometimes the only remedy for a hard week! Whether it’s just me and my husband or the whole family snuggled up, this pull-apart garlic bread recipe is a frequently-requested.
