Ratatouille Bake
I added a little white wine to the veggies before simmering. Perfection.

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo
This is good, and healthy! I make this for my husband as he's on a high protein diet to gain more mass (started weightlifting again). I did change a few things: some spices (cumin, pepper, thyme, paprika), a little more onion and garlic, some green onion, carrots, and mushrooms, omitted the green chiles, and used the dry beans that you soak overnight instead of the canned ones. I also add a little bit of beer about 500g of lean braising steak, which I cut into 4cm pieces and seared first. I slow cook it for about 2 hours, so the beef gets very tender, adding the rice and mushrooms for the last 30 minutes so they don't get too soggy. He loves it! The beef is so tender and the beer makes the sauce so rich, not bitter at all! I make a big pot so he can easily reheat more for himself later. My kids like it too, it's a great recipe!

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken
This was so delicious! Even my two and four year olds liked it. I used skinned chicken thighs, Lurpak Garlic butter (which eliminated the need to mince up some garlic), light soy sauce and fresh parsley, popped it in the oven to bake for about 20 minutes, then broiled in on each side for about 5 minutes like the other posters suggested. Really tasty! Also quick and easy. Next time I will cook it with the skin to give it that extra crispy taste. Yum!
