Often in the shadow of their starchy distant relative the potato, sweet potatoes are just as cheap, versatile and delicious as the mighty jacketed staple food. At around 79p per kg at Lidl (that’s about 3 big ones), there is no excuse not to have a go at some of our tasty and cost cutting recipes. Don’t be put off by their coloured skin and mutated shapes; it’s what’s inside that counts. Equality for the potatoes!
A healthy salad that is also filling and satisfying is a fine thing indeed
The perfect Valentine’s Day gift? Or is your loved one sweet enough?
This recipe comes from my godmother Mary, who is a phenomenal cook. Going to her house is amazing – she measures her cookbooks by the yard (and apparently they’ve all been left to me in her will!), and she’s a brilliant source of cooking tips and interesting new flavour combinations.

Nothing expresses your feelings better than a big old basket of muffins, so give these lemon and raspberry buns a go.
Josephine Harrington whips up sticky marinated chicken drumsticks. The longer they’re left to soak up the sweet and sour goodness the better!
This is another family recipe I wanted to share. Rosalie is my uncle-by-marriage’s mother, a wonderful Jewish lady whose recipes I have recreated many times over the years. Her cheesecake is the best I have ever tasted, and although I don’t have much of a sweet tooth I can’t resist it. For the base: 9-10 […]
Food shopping on the curry mile can feel a bit like you’ve been transported back to your gap year; rows of mysterious fruits and vegetables stacked up on the street, a bollywood soundtrack and questionable food-hygiene standards, or at least it does until the famous Manchester drizzle starts to dampen the dragon fruit. It’s easy […]
