Budget Bakes

Bake something special without breaking the bank. Whether you’re looking for a birthday cake or a comforting pudding, we’ve given some of our favourite sweet treats a thrifty twist. There’s rhubarb & custard blondies, red velvet cookies, sticky toffee banana bread, a gooey lemon drizzle sponge pudding and an impressive chocolate & raspberry birthday layer cake.

Star Chefs

BBC’s Ready Steady Cook is back! We chat to new host Rylan Clark and one of the show’s chefs Romy Gill, who shares her vegetable pulao recipe. Gordon Ramsay makes an extra special Valentine’s Day menu for two including pan-seared duck with pak choi & orange sauce and rhubarb & ginger cheesecake pots, while Emma Freud cooks crab & emmenthal soufflés for Rick Stein.

Pancake Party

Make the most of Shrove Tuesday (25 Feb) with our easy, family-friendly recipes for both sweet and savoury pancakes. Start with our spinach & ricotta pancake bake or buckwheat crêpe madames, before moving onto something sweet like our blueberry cheesecake pancakes or cinnamon roll pancakes

Easiest Ever

Think you don’t have time to cook something special for Valentine’s Day? Think again. Our midweek meals for two are simple, yet impressive. Show them you care by whipping up our prawn & harissa spaghetti, smoky steak & Cajun potatoes, or creamy tomato & mascarpone risotto.
