Nigella Lawson’s emergency brownies
Who wants to live for an extra decade anyway?
Louis Tikaram’s cucumber and snow pea salad
Squiz tip: We had this with some grilled fish. We went a bit light on the dressing, but you do you.
Karen Martini’s Baked blue-eye with olive, lemon and spiced rice pilaf
Squiz tip: We used salmon when we made it. Delish.
Chicken pot pie
Note: no pastry making required…
Squiz tip: Top with a squeeze of lemon and light sprinkle of sugar. Simples.
Nigella Lawson’s pea soup
Squiz tip: don’t worry about the fuss with the Thermos because let’s face it, you’re not going anywhere… Just put the water in a pot and go for it.
Matt Moran’s roast pumpkin with lentils, tahini and za’atar
Squiz tip: Sub out the kale (aka Satan’s tongue) for baby spinach leaves.
Adam Liaw’s sticky ginger roast chicken
Squiz tip: Do the butterfly thing (it’s not too hard…) or use chicken pieces. It’s literally a winner winner chicken dinner.
Simple lemon caper sauce
Squiz tip: We add an anchovy to ours just ‘cos. Extra nice with white fish/chicken/pork too.
Squiz tip: Don’t skip the gremolata
Adam Liaw’s slow-cooked beef ribs
Squiz tip: We made them into tacos
Clearly we’re in the kitchen a lot more in the cooler months…
Hellenic Republic’s Cypriot grain salad
Squiz tip: We had it with some roast lamb.
New York cheesecake
Squiz tip: We topped it with fresh blueberries instead of passionfruit just after the top layer cooled. Delish.
Jamie Oliver’s minestrone soup
Squiz tip: We skipped the chestnuts last time, but if you get a chance to procure some, do. They’re yum.
Karen Martini’s roast chicken on baked rice
Squiz tip: We like ours with a sharp salad and some Greek yoghurt with lemon, mint and a little garlic. Yum.
Beetroot salad with barley and hazelnut –
Squiz tip: It’s super good with a lamb or pork chop. Or even a takeaway BBQ chook if it’s been that kinda day.
