When it comes to a Sunday lunch, our households favourite is most definitely a good old slow roast leg of lamb.
Roast dinners have almost become a staple for us in the winter months. There is something about the smell of a roast dinner in the house over the weekend, it just feels right. And this slow roast leg of lamb is by far the favourite. It is also an absolute treat to serve up over the Easter period and great if you are entertaining guests.

Cooking up a slow roast leg of lamb on a Sunday is a treat for all of the family. It is one of those dishes that takes very little time to prepare but...
If you are into baking, Easter really is a great time to show off some culinary skills and get the children involved in some marvellous creations! After all, the shops are full of chocolate goodies and they will also help to make some amazing cakes.
Easter is also a great time to get together as a family and if you are hosting or visiting other family members, taking along a creation that you and the little one have created, really is quite special. You may also want to host something yourself at home, in which case, it will be a nice addition to offer.
Many of our favourites are based on what we would call quite simple baking. One of my favourites, and I can still...
Let's all be honest here, we all over compensate on the size of the turkey for the holiday period and end up with some turkey leftovers. I don't know one family that has bought a turkey that has perfectly fed their guests and family with little leftover.
Well, all is not lost! That big bird that you spent ages cooking, that you have now put into your fridge, can still create some magnificent meals from a wide range of cuisines. And more importantly, ones that won't be leaving you feeling bored of a bit of turkey.

What is Scrumptious Simple Spaghetti I hear you say? Spaghetti, by its nature is a nice and simple dish to cook. The Spaghetti itself, if using the dried variety, takes around 10-12 minutes in a pan of boiling water - simple.
However, making the sauce that goes with it will either make or break you meal. This is a super easy dish to make and won't take you much longer than 25 minutes from the moment you pull the first ingredient from the fridge (I've of course assumed that you have already heated the oven!)
This dish uses very traditional flavours when it comes to Italian cooking; tomatoes, garlic, basil and parmesan cheese. Is that all? Yes it is. Well, you can add in a bit of...
As we enter the winter season, there is nothing better than cooking a roast for the family or friends.
A slow cooked cut of silverside beef, is a wonderful meal to prepare if you are cooking for four people plus. As this is a slow cook recipe, there will be ample time to cook up the other elements of the meal such as the roast potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire puddings.
My other love of this dish are the aromas that you get in the house. Cooking with garlic and wine never ceases to impress.
Beef is one of those roasts that can sometimes be quite difficult to get absolutely perfect. However, by cooking it slowly, you can almost guarantee that you end up with a roast that...
Roast dinners are certainly not complete without a yummy Yorkshire pudding. They really are a staple when it comes to cooking up a family roast.
Whether you are cooking up lamb, beef, chicken or pork be sure that you add a Yorkshire pudding to the menu. Easy to cook and using little ingredients.
They are best served straight from the oven onto the dinner table. Timing is quite key and personally I make sure that everything else is on the table before I serve these little gems up.
Whether cooking for guest or family, they will be grateful for these.
Enjoy the recipe.
Yummy Yorkshire Puddings
No roast dinner is complete without a Yorkshire pudding. Whilst you can buy them pre made in the shop, nothing really beats making them...
Almost everyone that I know loves roast potatoes. I think it is fair to say that other than the meat that is served with a good old Sunday roast, the second most important thing is the potatoes. And, believe it or not, every family will have a different take on what is 'the perfect roast potato'.
However, this particular recipe is something of a family favourite and I would call it somewhat 'perfect'.
It's not just the potatoes that I love about this recipe but also the aromas that come as a result of cooking it. Garlic and rosemary are top of the agenda when it cooking roast potatoes and there's no doubt that this perfectly compliments a roast lamb dinner. That said, when you season...
