If you can't buy them: make them.

Corn & Chorizo Chowder

I'm not sure I can improve on this Corn and Chorizo Chowder. Rich, spicy and warming; and we all need a bit of that.

Next time I'm making these homemade onion bhajis, I'll invite you all round so we can share out the calories.

Sausage Casserole

I'm sure that you all already know how to make a sausage casserole...maybe some of you buy a sausage casserole mix from the supermarket. Who am I to judge?

Don't you think it's so much easier to eat salads when the sun finally comes out? This isn’t just ANY salad though, it’s a ‘Claire and Ed’s Spicy Satay Noodle Salad’

Just Chilli

This Summer seems to be about cagoules, umbrellas and drying off soggy chickens. So I cooked a chilli to warm our bones.

All Day Pork

May 31, 2012

Some things are worth getting up early for. The first one is a cup of tea and the second is the promise of a pulled pork pitta. This pork is dry rubbed with coffee and cooked all day. You're welcome.

Slow Cooked Massaman

December 5, 2011

15

I had long thought that stewing beef would work well in a slow cooked curry, but it was only recently that I tried it out. I’m pleased to report that it works very, very well. The meat is soft and delicious, the potatoes take on the subtle flavours of the spices and the coconut milk […]

Pork Thai Curry

June 8, 2011

5

When I slow roast a shoulder of pork to make pulled pork, there is always enough left for at least two more meals. I am the queen of making the most of leftovers. I have to be because I am greedy so I always prepare enough for 10 people. I had a notion that the […]

Peanut Wednesday

April 13, 2011

8

Today I feel the need for peanuts, and a peanut butter and jam sandwich just isn’t going to cut it. A while ago I made this very moreish Peanut Sauce within minutes of seeing it on David Lebovitz blog. The darkly roasted peanuts ground up with hot tea have an amazing aroma. It’s even better once you […]

Jambalaya

December 7, 2010

1

When I don’t feel like standing at the hob stirring a risotto and I’m craving something warming and spicy, we have jambalaya. This is my take on the creole dish which has been tempered down to be child friendly. It is also made with things we very often have in the fridge or freezer and […]

Chutney 2010

A fab chutney to use up all those green tomatoes.

Gyoza

August 13, 2010

9

We’ve loved Gyoza, or pot sticker dumplings, since we first tried them. We make a regular trip to Wagamama’s or Yo Sushi! for a fix. After a visit to the chinese supermarket in Derby with Apryl of Meridian Ariel we finally had some dumpling wrappers so I set about making them myself. I was a […]

Pulled Pork

May 24, 2010

18

I have wanted to write a post about Pulled Pork Sandwiches for a goodly while. I wanted to try eating one for even longer. But as Derbyshire is not quite the food centre of the universe we had to make our own. Apologies that I didn’t manage to photograph the glorious shoulder of pork when […]

Fresh from the Oven – Curry Stuffed Buns

September 28, 2009

12

I have recently joined a group called ‘Fresh From the Oven’ which is a monthly bread baking group. In essence the group has a monthly challenge to all bake their version of a given bready recipe. This months challenge was curry stuffed buns. I made them really early in the month and have been desperate to post this […]

Chutney 2009

September 16, 2009

4

2008′s Courgette Chutney, made by Ed, was a resounding success. We ate plenty of it ourselves and also gave some to friends and all agreed it was really quite good. A good dollop with cheese on toast or with crusty bread and ham was always welcome. We even ran out before Summer, so this year […]
