Lazy Weekends

Orange Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

Orange Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

Roasted carrots and parsnips are a staple of roast dinners here – but I feel the orange is underrated in the festive period. We have mackerel pate and clementines for Christmas lunch (the roast is in the evening), and Santa often leaves a clementine in […]

Smoked Mackerel Bake with Stuffing Topping

Smoked Mackerel Bake with Stuffing Topping

  This smoked mackerel bake is designed around one of my favourite ingredients. We even eat smoked mackerel on Christmas day in the form of a pate, mixed with cream cheese. It’s got a lovely fishy taste, and comes ready to eat. It’s just perfect  […]

Homemade Apple Sauce with Braised Onions

Homemade Apple Sauce with Braised Onions

A homemade apple sauce with braised onions – perfect with a baked ham joint, or nut roast. Try it with my Slow Cooker Marmalade Glazed Ham or Pork Leg in Apple Juice. This dish isn’t over sweetened so is half way between condiment and side dish. Do […]

Oven Bacon Chop with Apple and Mushrooms

Oven Bacon Chop with Apple and Mushrooms

This oven bacon chop recipe is so easy – and bacon chops have so much flavour. If you don’t have bacon chops available you could try this recipe with gammon steaks. Bacon chops, though, are one of the yummy reasons I enjoy shopping at my […]

Sausage Crumble with Apple and Cheese

Sausage Crumble with Apple and Cheese

  This recipe was originally unexpected.  It wasn’t something I planned to plan- I thought sausage, my husband said crumble, and the rest is history! One of those surprises where you know from the first forkful that you will eat it many more times. I first […]

Slow Cooker Lamb Roast with Spices and Minted Yogurt

Slow Cooker Lamb Roast with Spices and Minted Yogurt

This spiced slow cooker lamb roast is the perfect fusion of middle eastern cuisine and a good old British roast. You can serve the meat with roast potatoes or middle eastern sides. Even better, it cooks in the slow cooker with no added liquid and minimal […]

Easy Slow Roast Goose in Apple Juice

Easy Slow Roast Goose in Apple Juice

This slow roast goose makes a succulent Christmas roast a breeze. I love eating Christmas dinner, but I have better things to do with the day than spend it in the kitchen fretting over whether the meat is done. I love eating goose at Christmas […]

No Peel Roast – Side Dish Ideas

No Peel Roast – Side Dish Ideas

No peel side dish ideas for a lazy roast. If you’re looking for easy side dish ideas give this a try. The worst part of a roast for me is the peeling. Roast potatoes, carrots and parsnips are tasty, but gosh, the chopping and peeling. […]

Slow Cooker Marmalade Glazed Ham

Slow Cooker Marmalade Glazed Ham

Slow cooker marmalade glazed ham – pretty foolproof, but fancy enough for a special occasion. Our first married Christmas, Christmas Day itself was just the two of us, so we boiled the meat, a gammon joint, and roasted the vegetables. It was a veritable feast – […]

Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast with Tarragon Fried Potatoes

Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast with Tarragon Fried Potatoes

This cheese stuffed chicken dish is the perfect chicken fix for summery weather – or a good way to get summery vibes going when the weather doesn’t feel too warm. This recipe is based upon one I first cooked 11 years ago in my now […]
