I have joined forces with M&S for an exciting new partnership, which kicks off with my brand new meal planner to help people serve up delicious, pocket-friendly family meals this summer.

The meal planner is packed full of products from the M&S Remarksable Value* range and includes a shopping list full of great value, quality ingredients with easy-to-follow recipes that’ll give you five mid-week meals for a family of four, as well as my handy tips for any leftovers.

Each of my recipes comes in at under £2 per person giving a quality meal, for less than the price of a cup of coffee. Win, win, WIN. What’s more, all prices of the ingredients in the meal planner will be locked by M&S in stores for the whole summer.

Developed around ‘ALL taste, less waste’ the planner includes recipes such as Chipotle Chicken Thighs with Herby Rice, with tips to turn any leftovers into a burrito bowl for lunch the following day.  Sweet & Spicy Sausage, Carrot & Broccoli Bake, with an amazing hack for turning the leftover broccoli stalk into its very own pesto.

My advice is to have a shopping list and knowing what you’re going to cook over the next five or seven days. Decide the recipes you’re going to use, and only buy what you need – a little bit of structure works really well.

Pick up the shopping list in store and scan the QR code to find the recipes and meal planner online, find it here or click the button below.

You’ll also find my top 10 budget cooking hacks in the latest issue of the M&S Food magazine, launching 19th July in stores, including batch cooking, trusting in tray bakes, and using up often discarded parts of veg like cauliflower and onions.

I’m super excited to be working with M&S and there’s lots more to come, I’ll keep you updated.

Hope you enjoy!
