Courgettes are quite bland and so it can be difficult to get children to eat them as a vegetable. So what I always do is bake courgettes in the oven, stuffed full of tasty and fresh ingredients and suddenly they are turned into the main event.
These cupcakes are something I made for the school fayre. They sold out pretty fast, I'm sure due to their white chocolate dribbleness. The other cakes I made did not sell out fast. It was very stressful watching them sit, lonely and ignored. I won't be making anything other than these for the school fayre, ever again.
We all know that a homemade lunch tends to be more nutritious, less expensive and better tasting than grabbing lunch from the work canteen or local cafe. However, there seems to be a few myths lurking that may be holding us back from having a really enjoyable lunch experience.
We are singing, dancing and cheering our way through the week as we welcome two beautiful new faces to the Food Tube family! ... Check out the sort of delicious goodness you can expect on the menu...
Some people bring a bottle of wine or bunch of flowers when they come round for a meal. Our friends Jill and Bruce did both - and topped it with the munificent gift of a large piece of home-smoked salmon.
These crêpes are fluffy and light, they balance well with the compote and slip down like heaven. You can prep the batter and compote in advance and make these mid-week as well as having them on a lazy Sunday.

I've added a can of tuna fish in this easy recipe because I know that foraging enough razor clams to lunch upon, is a matter of experience. If you find a quantity to dine royalty, forget the tin of tuna in this Seashore Salad. When foraging wild ingredients, take enough for your own need and no more.
I wish, wish, wish I'd appreciated my body between the years 1996 to 2013. It really wasn't that bad. Yes, I often sported a few extra pounds, and no, I wasn't a size 10. But really, compared to now, I was in great shape... Here's a cake that almost includes one of your five a day.
I often ask people what their top roadblocks are to eating a healthy meal each night. The answers I hear the most include finding the time, motivation and energy to prepare dinner. Especially after a long day of work, when you're tired and hungry, this is when dinners go to the wayside.
This is a hotch-potch of a recipe but the umami flavour of the miso paste works really well with the traditional English ingredients of honey, apple and sage.
You know the feeling. You're at home and you have to eat. The menu must be simple, quick, and healthy. As a chef and nutrition expert, people frequently ask me what I prepare for myself when I'm pinched for time. I'm inherently lazy when it comes to preparing my own meals, but I never sacrifice quality.
Here's a really lovely quiche recipe. It's not that hard, but if it's a bottle of wine day then maybe buy the pastry...
If you've been brambling and have an armful of scratches and only a small bowl of blackberries to show for your efforts, this is a good way of getting your own back. Tangy and fruity with a touch of warm spice, this sauce would work well with duck breasts, lamb or venison as well as the pork chops I plumped for.
My grandmother loved food but hated cooking, and saw it as unnecessary drudgery. Imagine my surprise after she died to find a well-worn recipe book in her house with this handwritten into it. Not once did she make these for me and yet they are wonderful! Here's the recipe translated into metric.
It's hot outside AND in the kitchen, as Food Tube turn up the heat and take you to paradise with this week's lip-smacking, tummy-teasing, joy-bubbling recipes.
