Favourite Family Meals: A Table Full of Smiles

by | Tanya's Tasty Tips

At The Cookhouse, we are passionate about creating convenient, wholesome meal options for the whole family. By stocking up on a few staples from The Cookhouse, you can make filling, nutritious meals in minutes – real crowd pleasers for smiles around the dinner table every night.

Butternut Mash Mac

Getting the kids to eat vegetables can be a challenge. My eight year old will only eat butternut this way! Decant The Cookhouse Mac ‘n Cheese into a big bowl. Add a tub of our Creamy Butternut Mash and mix the two together, thoroughly. Pop your mix into an oven dish and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake to crispy! It’s delicious and the kids hardly realise they’re eating a good portion of this beta-carotene filled, immune-boosting veg!


Chilli Con Carne a la Cookhouse  

Whenever I make this Chilli Con Carne, it’s an absolute HIT with my family and it only takes a few minutes.

Mix our “Bolognaise Sauce” with our “Pizzaiola Sauce with Bacon“.

Add a tin of kidney beans. Finally, add a generous amount of ground cumin to taste (or our Eighteen Spice sold in-store). Serve with sour cream, cheese, nacho chips, wraps, or whatever Mexican side tickles your fancy!


Pizzaiola Pizza

Top your pizza bases (homemade or store bought) with our Pizzaiola Sauce (with bacon or with olives); then simply top with a generous sprinkling of mozzarella cheese and bake in the oven. All your Italian flavours and ingredients are there already, including the best tomato base, so these sauces make perfect pizzas!



Just the best kid-friendly, fallback, quick and easy, throw-together family meal ever!

Simply decant our 2-portion Mac n Cheese (the whole meal) into a big bowl. Then add 1 x tub of our Bolognaise Sauce and mix. Pour contents into an oven dish and top with grated cheese. Bake until crispy on top.


Tangy Chicken & Pineapple

Because it’s sweet and scrummy, the kids often love this one. If you’re in a hurry, simply make some noodles and toss your Tangy Chicken & Pineapple through the noodles to heat all together in a pot. Otherwise, the dish makes a super filler for lunch wraps.


Country Chicken, Bacon & Pea Pie / Comfort Cottage Pie

As is. The kids tend to just love them!
