We love these delicious chicken satay skewers from Norman Musa's Amazing Malaysian – they're the perfect appetiser when served with peanut sauce, cucumber wedges, red onion slices and cubes of pressed rice. The marinade is wonderfully easy to make and gives the chicken a smoky caramelized flavour with a hint of lemongrass, cumin and turmeric. An ideal party dish and a fantastic weekend treat.
Frittatas are easy to make and brilliant to transport and delicious hot or cold, making them a great vegetarian breakfast or lunch option – and this asparagus and tomato frittata slice from The Foodie Teen cookbook is absolute heaven. Try mixing up the veggies to create different flavour combinations.
