E warms her cockles with some festive food.
We're all feeling the sudden autumn chill and one of the best ways to combat that, I'm sure you all know, is to get those heart warming recipes on the go.
A chunky soup or stew is always a good idea and if you're interested, Jamie Oliver always has a great chowder recipe...
It's time to batch cook some curry so you can just get it the freezer. And pour yourself a glass of red after a late one at work. You'll instantly be warmed up and revived!
Another quick and easy one is, a warm salad, it might not sound good, but trust me. Roast up some veg of your choice, in smoked paprika and chillies, my favourite is; sweet potato, pepper, courgettes and aubergines, - well anything you have in the fridge works in this one! Then pop it on a bed of spinach or rocket leaves. It's delicious, cosy and super easy, as an end of the week dinner.
Making your own pizza is a great weekend dinner. You've got a bit more time for that preparation but you want something to nibble with your Netflix, plus it's fun to make.
