Fast Fry Beef and Kale

This meal is so easy and so fast you wonder how it can satisfy your hungry crew. That is precisely the beauty of this dish. I used the kale from my kitchen garden and threw it in a little at a time so some bits were cooked but still a [...]

Scalloped Sweet Potatoes and Thyme

This scalloped potato recipe was an instant hit. I used Lancashire White Cheese instead of the cheeses listed and it was great. Use any cheese that strikes your fancy. A great opportunity to try something new. There are 19.6g net carbs, 6.1g protein and 9 Weight Watchers points per serving.

Pad Thai Salad

This spectacular summer salad is very high in protein and adds beautiful colour to your summer table. To julienne veggies I would suggest purchasing a julienne peeler. They usually come with 3 different blades and are a handy little gadget to have around the kitchen.
