A few favourite home-made meals

A big hit! Sweet chilli chicken from 'Ching's Chinese food in minutes'
This sweet Chilli chicken dish has to be an all time favourite in our house. Not only is it quick to cook (taking less than 10 minutes) but it is also versatile. You can serve it with rice as in the picture or it's excellent with chips too (depending how naughty you're feeling!)

Tagliatelle alla bolognese (pasta ribbons in meat sauce) from 'Two greedy Italians'
The Tagliatelle dish above is how real Italians eat their Bolognese sauce, not with spaghetti but with a thick pasta like Tagliatelle.

Roast cod wrapped in prosciutto with roasted tomatoes and baby potatoes
Moroccan lamb with couscous, stuffed peppers, pitta and houmous from 'Jamie's 30 minute meals' 
Chicken, coconut and sweet potato curry
This curry has got be something that changes every time I cook it as I don't use a recipe, it's more a case of add a bit of this, add a bit of that!

I may not be the best cook in the world or the best at presentation but if it tastes good that's all that matters!
