Cooking With Nicky

Cooking With Nicky



We’re delighted to announce our new partnership with foodie blogger Nicky! All the way from the Kitchen Sanctuary blog, each week, Nicky will be cooking up easy recipes and sharing foodie cleaning hacks on our social media channels.

In each video, Nicky will take you step by step through the recipes, providing tips and advice
on how to make food taste delicious without spending hours in the kitchen. We know that busy people don’t always have the time to cook up a complicated recipes so we want to bring easy meals and hacks right to your kitchen table.

Nicky is a 36 year old wife and mum of two, who in her own words is ‘a firm believer in sitting the family down at the table as often as possible for a nice home cooked meal and a catch-up on the day’. She is a self confessed food magazine and recipe book addict (a girl after our own heart) and has created some mouth watering recipes for us to enjoy and help clean up afterwards!

    A lighter alternative to regular meatballs, these One-Pot Turkey Meatballs With Courgetti are tender and delicious! One-pot meatballs are a complete revelation to me.

  • Healthier Red Thai Chicken Curry – without the shop-bought sauce!

    The homemade curry paste for this Spicy Healthier Red Thai Chicken Curry is easy and packed with flavour! I love a good curry at the weekend.

  • Baked Fish and Chips with Lemon Smashed Peas

    Baked Fish and Chips! They may be baked in the oven, but they’ve still got all the flavour and crunch of the fried version!

  • Creamy Slow Cooked Pork Casserole

    Creamy Slow Cooked Pork Casserole – perfect comfort food! This is my kind of Friday night dinner when it’s been raining and miserable all day and you just want something really tasty to warm you up from the inside.
