When I walk in the door at 6.30pm on most weeknights, my mind is often frantically trying to decide what’s the quickest dinner I can whip up in under 30 minutes. If it takes any longer, all hell breaks loose. It’s like my kids have alarms that go off at 7pm and they become like little vultures preying around the kitchen for snacks. It’s at those times I curse myself for not being more organised. Then there are times when I walk in, heat up a made-ahead dish and, before you know it, the family is enjoying dinner at the table.

SHE’LL BE APPLES I have always loved baking, and grew up with apple pie as a favourite dessert. So when I saw this gluten-free Free Form Apple Pie (March 2005, p78), I was excited to give it a go. I added blueberries to make it into a beautiful crostata and presented it at a big family get together. There are four of us with coeliac disease so this recipe was a hit! Lisa Olthof, via Instagram “THIS RECIPE WAS A HIT!” TWO THUMBS UP I cook for my husband and then we love to rate the recipes like we are judges from Masterchef Australia. I made the Slow-cooker Malaysian Nyonya Curry (July 2018, p44). The recipe is now marked as a favourite. Donna Jack, via email TEATIME TREAT My 93-year-old mum and her friend came over…
