DINNER IN A BOWL TAKES THE CLASSICS AND GIVES THEM A SPIN As you can see from my picture, I’m not what anyone would call a ‘beach bunny’. I do like to be beside the seaside on a winter’s day, all rugged up, staring off into the dark horizon like a character from a Gothic novel. But even I’m feeling the cold this winter. It just seemed to come on so quickly! No time to bring the heaters out from under the house, or pull the pullovers down from the top of the wardrobes. So to warm myself up, I’ve taken to the kitchen – having the oven on makes the whole house feel toasty, even if I am just making toast! For some reason, it’s the classics that we return to every year as…

“I HAD TO MAKE THESE CUTE CAKES!” The burgers are better I had to make these cute Mini Sweet Cake Burgers and Fries (March 2017, p86) once I saw them. Miss Two had fun sprinkling on the sesame seeds (and eating the leftover coloured snakes). I was surprised how good all the flavours tasted together, too. Jessica Garner, via Instagram No-squeal meal After seeing the vegetarian recipe for Spinach and Ricotta Zucchini Cannelloni (March 2017, p36), I knew we had to try it. It was simple to make and absolutely delicious. Even my ‘confirmed carnivore’ husband loved it. Thank you for putting together such a consistently great range of recipes – it’s like getting a present in my letterbox each month!

Beat the winter chill with steaming pots of soups, stews and ‘stoups’. What’s a stoup, you ask? Hearty like a stew, comforting like a soup, stoups are the best of both. Plus, you can make them ahead and freeze for later. Don’t miss: All it takes to make this family of cute waddling penguins is a packet of assorted creams and a bit of creativity. Cool, right? With the days at their shortest, we know you’re even more pressed for time. With lots of one-pot wonders and slow-cooker soups on the back burner, you’ll never be short of dinner ideas.…

“The colour of beetroot is gloriously opulent. It puts me in mind of Thai silk, velvet or even rubies. I love its unique satiny smoothness when cooked and its unusual sweet yet savoury flavour.”STEPHANIE ALEXANDER, COOK AND AUTHOR AND LOOK OUT FOR Butternut pumpkin | Cara cara oranges | Avocado | Medjool dates | Pink lady apples | Spring onions Beetroot Full of vitamins and antioxidants, beetroot can be eaten raw, roasted, pickled or boiled.

Gut feeling Dietary fibre helps keep our digestive system working (if you know what we mean!) as well as assisting in preventing bowel cancer. Bowel Cancer Australia recommends eating five serves a day of non-starchy vegetables, plus grains and legumes. Studies show garlic, milk and calcium probably have a protective effect, too. Or just add a couple of our recipes to your repertoire. EDAMAME is Japanese for ‘beans on the branch’ and is a popular dish of hot, salted young soybeans in the pod. It’s also what we call the young soybeans themselves. You’ll find them frozen in their pods at the supermarket. Super simple to prepare – just steam, or boil in salted water – they’re good for you, too, as they’re high in protein and soluble fibre, which helps you…
