This gingerbread house is not for the faint hearted, but wonderful to have a go at. Even if it isn't a total success, disasters are usually more memorable! If you have bought a Dinner Ladies gingerbread kit, ignore the parts of the recipe for making dough and icing.

Pulled pork just got more irresistible with a sticky Asian marinade. This is a brilliantly versatile dish - use it to fill rice paper rolls or Chinese-style puffy omelettes or, as we do, stuff it in a baguette with pickled vegetables, a squiggle of sriracha chilli sauce and some mayo for a sort of easy banh mi. If you have leftovers, you could toss them through cooked hokkien noodles with steamed Asian greens, chopped into bite-sized pieces.
