Thai Creamed Coconut ChickenServes 4

Thai Creamed Coconut Chicken

Using ready-cooked chicken speeds up this already easy dish, making it a real winner for weekday supper. Coconut milk can be heavy in calories, so dieters may like to know that you can now buy half-fat coconut milk instead.

 
 
Polenta and Ricotta Cake with Dates and PecansServes 8-10

Polenta and Ricotta Cake with Dates and Pecans

This unusual Italian cake freezes really well and makes a nice change from the more obvious teatime offerings: polenta gives the cake a grainy texture while the ricotta and amaretto to add moisture and an alcoholic kick!

 
 
Little Sticky Toffee Puddings with Pecan Toffee SauceServes 8

Why not freeze these gorgeous little puds for a very special dessert? Your guests will love the wonderful flavours of this real treat.

 
 
Pot-roasted Beef in Red Wine with Red Onion MarmaladeServes 4-6

Pot-roasted Beef in Red Wine with Red Onion Marmalade

Pot-roasting used to be popular but then fell out of favour. We reckon it's well overdue for a revival, as you don't have to worry about it drying out as you would with a roast and the meat just sits and cooks happily by itself.

 
 
Thai Prawn Curry with PineappleServes 2

Thai Prawn Curry with Pineapple

Pineapple crops up in many Thai dishes and here it offers a juicy, tangy counterpoint to fat, succulent prawns, all cooked in a spicy sauce. Quick and easy, Thai curries are the perfect midweek solution when you are tired and hungry.

 
 
Canadian Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple SyrupMakes about 6

Canadian Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple Syrup

The Canadian bit comes from the maple syrup - that sticky, sweet, caramelly ingredient that lifts pancakes into the realm of the heavenly. Using buttermilk makes pancakes particularly light and moreish.

 
 
Highland Pasta with Smoked SalmonServes 2 as a main course or 4 as a starter

Highland Pasta with Smoked Salmon

This very quick supper dish for two (or starter for four) has the luxurious addition of smoked salmon and a very moreish wine and creme fraiche sauce. Sure to become a favourite!

 
 
Fried Skate Wings with Very Quick Homemade Tartare SauceServes 2

Fried Skate Wings with Very Quick Homemade Tartare Sauce

This unctuous sauce keeps for a week and so can be called into service for other fish dishes too. Make it with lime and coriander for a more oriental touch. Skate is hugely underrated, easy to cook and well worth the effort.

 
 
Roasted Tomato Soup with Puree of Basil and Olive CroutonsServes 6

Roasted Tomato Soup with Puree of Basil and Olive Croutons

Roasting tomatoes results in a soup that's packed with intense flavour, while the addition of basil brings out the very best in this Mediterranean ingredient.

 
 
Tuscan White Bean Soup with Frizzled Shallots and PancettaServes 4

Tuscan White Bean Soup with Frizzled Shallots and Pancetta

We all know that pulses are a brilliant source of fibre and protein, so if you want to up your intake, this soup is just one way of doing so. The cannellini beans give the soup a creamy texture and the flavour is out of this world!
