Best of Feta Hands

These are the recipes I come back to time and again partly because they're easy to make, but mostly because they're just so damn delicious.

Quick and easy

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.

Slow-cooker sensations

How good is coming home at the end of a long day to the mouthwatering smell of a delicious slow-cooker meal! These easy recipes are perfect for those days when you want to get dinner ticked off the list nice and early, or when you know you just won't have the time or energy later on.

Something special

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!).

Vegan options

Cutting down on our consumption of animal products is the number-one way we can reduce on our personal greenhouse gas emissions. Besides, it's far easier and more delicious than you think!

Gluten-free options

If you or someone you're cooking for is cursed with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance, I offer my condolences... and also a few easy recipes.

Keeping it cheap

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.

Gourmet 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.

Light delights

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 you shed those extra kilograms.

Simple salads

For all those times you're asked to bring a salad and want to do something a little more exciting than the old garden salad. But don't worry, you won't have to spend all day making it - or buy a whole lot of exotic, overpriced ingredients!

Packed with protein

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).

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.

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.

Winter warmers

These meals feature hearty root vegetables or legumes and are best served steaming hot (preferably by the open fire on a cold winter's night!).
