    Family favourite burgers

    December seems to be a time when the pace of life speeds up. At times like this it is good to have some favourite recipes that are quick to prepare and can be reheated to serve those who get home later. It's not all about main meals either - a couple of standby desserts may be just what everyone needs!

    Quesadillas with chorizo and cheese

    Try cooking these in a toasted sandwich plate. Quesadillas are delicious hot from the oven but also perfect to take for work lunch. They reheat easily in the microwave or can be eaten at room temperature. While they are filling on their own, they could also be served alongside a meaty dish such as chilli con carne. Serves 4, ready in 50min.
