How about recipes that are either a favourite, you made up yourself or made adjustments to suit diet.

To make lasagne first I make buckwheat pancakes and use these rather than lasagne sheet, I also use buckwheat flour for the sauce. Reason the other half can't do wheat (there's no wheat in buckwheat flour). It makes a passable lasagne.

Another for people struggling or with shops being bare is pasta spaggetti snapped in half 2 tins of sasuages dliced into 3 and thread a cut sasuage onto 4 bits of pasta cook pasta as normal with sasuage on them and serve and i call it spider spaggetti with cheese and ketchup. This one has been a life saver when times are hard on the bank balance

I use a spaghetti recipe frequently that's cheap & easy. Boil pasta in a pan. In a separate pan add a very good lashing of olive oil & fry some garlic (I use lazy garlic for this), Add a couple tablespoons on tomatoe puree. Add some water to the sauce from the pasta water. Coat the spaghetti in the sauce & add parmasan on top. Delicious!

Comfort food for me is grilled bacon chopped up, diced onion, mushrooms, garlic, mushroom and Tom purรฉe (both optional) all mixed in to a tin of Heinz spaghetti. Cheap cheerful and can feed 5000 better than than loaves and fish

Blimey doesn't anyone cook proper food anymore? So simple to brown some mince and diced onion (you can buy bags of frozen diced onion) put into slow cooker with a load of store cupboard or frozen ingredients like box of passatta, beef stock cube, mixed herbs, garlic, chilli, Worcester sauce, tomato puree and water then just simmer away for a few hours until time to cook spaghetti.

Do the same with mini chicken fillets, into the slow cooking after searing with the diced onion and a selection of suitable veg/mushrooms and add a colmans/Schwartz casserole mix serve later with some mash which you can buy ready made if you have to.

I always cook from scratch, no packets, only frozen item is peas, no pasta - can't eat it.

My boyfriend does all the cooking in our house as I would probably end up poisoning us both with my lack of culinary skills!

I am an a extremely fussy eater, so it is a struggle to cook for me, and we always have a separate meal because we donโ€™t like the same stuff so he has to cook 2 meals every night!

I normally have just plain chicken breast with a small amount of season all on it, cooked in the oven and I have that with golden vegetable rice! That is what I have most nights lol x
