Norman’s Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Lively Salsa

My dad is a pro at barbecuing, especially lamb. This may look like a large, daunting piece of meat, but it’s actually very simple to cook and a hassle-free way to feed a crowd. The marinade and salsa are based on classic Italian flavour combinations and always work.

Sweet Potato and Tomato Soup

Creamy Broccoli Soup

A delicious and healthy soup from Rozanne Stevens

Ginger hoisin beef

This is the very first stir fry recipe I cooked in the wok that my dad bought me when I was 17. The wok is still going strong and so is this recipe. The ish factor is the sauce and the marinade. Hoisin sauce has a lovely sweet plummy taste and oyster sauce is deep and rich, perfect for beef. The pale dry sherry is the substitute for Chinese rice wine,and really enhances the aromatic heat of the ginger. Use extra veggies if preferred and serve with rice or noodles to mop up the sauce.

Friday Fried Rice

This is a great 'catch all' recipe for the end of the week where you can use up bits of veggies and leftover chicken to make a really tasty, filling meal. And as it is takeawayish, it feels like a treat on a Friday evening. Our ish factors fresh ginger, soya sauce and toasted sesame oil add ish pizazz to a recipe that can be quite bland. Aim for more veggie and meaty bits and less rice for an interesting, delish meal.

Baked filled pumpkin

This is one of my favourite recipes- it looks really fun and the flavour combination is really moreish. I have had students get up in the middle of the night to eat the leftovers of this recipe!

Spiced Citrus Cake

This is a wonderfully light, fluffy cake due to the airy whisked egg whites folded in. Subtly scented with spices and lightly fragranced with citrus, this cake is perfect with a cup of tea. Or serve as a dessert with Greek yoghurt and fresh fruit if you want a lighter finish to a meal. I've used vanilla bean paste here which is one of my Pantry Pals (I love the aroma and natural sweetness of real vanilla seeds). The solid ingredients in this cake are measured in millilitres, so use your measuring jug instead of weighing scales.

Black Pudding Burgers

This is my favourite burger recipe. Just the smell of them grilling drives my senses wild. The black pudding gives the perfect amount of fat to the burger and fantastic flavour, so there’s no need for extra salt and pepper. There are five optional toppings, which you can serve all at once if you like!
