On a budget?

Saving for a holiday? Waiting for pay day? Burdened with the type of personality that just can't face overspending? Add these recipes to your repertoire and watch your grocery bill plummet.

In a hurry?

As much as I love cooking, the bug doesn't strike every day. There are times when I just want to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible - and these recipes let me do it.

Craving toast?

Seriously, is there anything better than toast? It opens up a world of 5-minute breakfasts, lunches and dinners. And it's the perfect medium for all my favourite ingredients. Feta... mmm...

Counting calories?

Been there. In fact, one year I counted literally every calorie I consumed AND every calorie I expended. It was exhausting, and it was ineffective. But it has given me a sixth sense for what kind of meals will help your waistline.

Empty fridge?

Okay, if it's truly empty you might be beyond help. But if you keep on top of those pantry staples, you might just be able to throw something together using what you've got.

Hate washing up?

When you get home after a long day, cooking dinner is hard enough without having to wash the goddamn dishes afterwards as well. Use these one-pot wonders to make clean up a breeze.

Feeling fancy?

As much as this blog is about keeping meals quick, easy, cheap, and nutritious, it doesn't mean you shouldn't stretch yourself a little from time to time if the results are worth it (and believe me, they are!).

On the go?

Just because you won't have access to a microwave doesn't mean you can't bring a homemade lunch with you when you're on the go. These meals are delicious at room temperature.

Ditching dairy?

Whether you're lactose intolerant, vegan, or just seeing how it feels to cut out animal products for a while, there's something for you here. Don't be thrown by the masses of feta and parmesan in the images: these meals hold their own without it!

Seriously starving?

Shame on anyone that says vegetarian meals are always lacking in protein. These meals will keep you just as satiated as a steak (NB I have no experience to back up that claim).
