Absolutely gorgeous. Nothing quite like a rack of lamb. Well worth the effort!
This recipe comes from the BBC and was introduced to us by Hetty when they came over for a family meal. It is really lovely; I thoroughly recommend it. Takes a bit of time to prepare but so worth it, especially if you are having a dinner party.
This is my dad's favourite meal. Although it is really simple he insists it is the eighth wonder of the modern world. In fairness, it does taste great and is really easy to do. However, we never tell him this otherwise he would be unbearable. This recipe fed three people but really you could do about 4. Give it a go - suggest you have it with ketchup or baked tomatoes. Very nice.
We now have 1000 likes on our Facebook page! To celebrate I just made this. It is rather splendid and great if you don't want to make a huge batch that you might be tempted to gorge on! One cookie made in a mug. Give it a go!
Kedgeree is traditionally eaten at breakfast but really I think it makes for a rather lovely supper. It uses fairly simple ingredients and smoked haddock tends to be on offer. The great thing about this one is that it really fills you up. I also really like the way it can be the centre-piece for a meal - just pop it in a bowl and chuck it on the table and then you can have as much or as little as you like.
This mayonnaise is based on a recipe by Pret A Manger - one of my favourite companies ever. I heard Julian Metcalfe speak once and he was truly brilliant. Thoroughly recommend them.
The most important thing with this recipe is to add the olive oil incredibly slowly otherwise it will go runny and that is not what we want.
Great easy recipes for flapjack. Takes no time and is lovely. Give it a go!
This made Elena wayyyy too happy. She loves what I call "cat food tuna". This is the kind of tuna you get in a tin. To be honest with you I think nothing smells worse. But she loves it. Weird. Anyhow, if you disguise the smell with this recipe you will actually quite enjoy the experience. Good luck.
This is not a great picture, but it really is nice.
Now it's approaching summer I am getting into my salads. This was splendid. Love a bit of fish. Very fresh and lovely in jars.
So Ravi and Chloe have both gone home for interviews (woooopp good luck!) and that leaves Rob, Cora and I still in Durham. Cora is a bit of a basketball queen so 'twas just Rob and I here last night. This is what we made. It is based on a recipe by Paul Hollywood only we used a different amount of flour, no chocolate chips and no semolina.... It's really good.
This was a lovely little supper. Very healthy. In Tesco you get 2 fillets in a pack and there always seems to be a "2 pack for £7" or "3 for £10" on all meats. Suggest you get on it.
Rav made this the other day. It was superb! We had both never really had much contact with cauliflower but I can report it was fab! This recipe is from BBC Good Food, with the (inevitable) addition of some of Rav's chilli powder #SpiceGod.
