Turkey Cottage Pie

We follow the same basic recipe for making this traditional British dish, altering only the herbs used depending on what type of meat we have. Substitute chicken or beef for turkey. Any vegetables can be used. I like making this dish to use up left overs after a roast dinner

gluten free bread sauce

Bread sauce goes very well with chicken and turkey. This is a modification of our recipe for bread sauce using white wheat bread.

Gluten-free meatloaf

Meatloaf is a family favourite around our house, so I made a few changes to add some hidden vegetables and make it gluten-free for me.

I've modified this recipe for myself from another that I found here at SP recipes.

Venison Casserole

Venison is high in iron and naturally low in fat. This savoury winter dish goes very nicely served alongside mashed potatoes or rice.


We make this as a side dish to go with pork loin steaks. Serve it warm, it tastes much better than the ready made apple sauces

Old English Apple Pie

More cake than pie, I found this recipe in an old Kansas Cookbook I picked up before moving to the UK. This recipe most resembles a traditional English Eve's pudding.

French toast

made just the way we like it.

Spicy butternut squash and chickpea soup

A nice hearty soup for a cold winter's evening. I modify this recipe by cooking up 2 rashers sliced smoked bacon in the pot, cooking the onions down in the fat. Also does nicely with chopped roast gammon added for non-vegetarian winter fare.

family meatloaf

a family favourite, coarsely chop all the veg in a food processor to hide from finicky kidlets

Easy salmon loaf

quick and easy to make

the anchovy and capers add a nice depth to the dish
