Eat well for less

The hit BBC show Eat Well For Less strikes a chord with us parents who need to balance our household budgets, but you don’t have to skip the treats to enjoy hearty suppertimes. This month, we're tucking into pizza with nifty toppings including Italian, Spanish and veggie, or for an even thriftier meal, create your own using leftovers from the weekend roast.

The spice of life

Who can resist a curry? It’s the nation’s favourite food and we’re celebrating with some fiery recipes from BBC favourites Cyrus Todiwala and Chetna Makan. Cyrus shows how to make roasted sweet potato, pumpkin & lentil soup, Goan pork & bean stew, and spicy purple sprouting broccoli, while 2014 Great British Bake Off contestant Chetna gives a masterclass in baking with exotic spices. Try her spice-tastic pistachio, cardamom & white chocolate cake.

Strictly eating

Strictly Come Dancing makes a welcome return to our screens, so get your friends round for a viewing party. On the menu is Bakewell trifles, posh ice cream sandwiches, mini choc-orange tarts and an ice cream bombe. But be warned: you might need to do the rumba to work it all off!

Let's get ready to crumble

As the nights draw in, our thoughts turn to comfort food, so what better than a good old-fashioned British crumble using fruit from the late summer harvest? We’ve got four to choose from: our best-ever apple crumble, a perfect pear & blackberry crumble, a no-bake plum crumble, and an awesome apricot & blueberry crumble cake.
