Chick Pea and Potato Curry

April 16, 2015

6

This is a standby meal for us when it looks like the cupboards are bare but for a couple of handfuls of new potatoes rolling about in the salad drawer and some fresh herbs. We had this last week on our return from a sunny day at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, hence the quick tray photo […]

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.

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?

Just Chilli

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

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

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 […]

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

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 […]
