Spanish Omelette

This is one of Wife’s favourite dishes. Put simply, it’s peasant food with simple flavours in a classic combination, it’s not hard to understand why. We had a lot of eggs in the house for some reason which is why I decided to grab a bag of new potatoes and try this particular Spanish omelette … Continue reading

Baked Potato

Hello again. Wife and I have both been feeling a little bit under the weather so no big culinary efforts have been made for a few days. Last night we just decided on baked potatoes, easy right? As I seem to do with everything I cook these days I just had a quick look on … Continue reading

Cheese & Onion Omelette

I was talking to someone the other day who told me that their 21 year old brother wouldn’t know how to make an omelette. I was shocked but it got me thinking that he’s probably not alone so while I was making myself a little snack today I thought I’d get it on here. You … Continue reading

Chicken Pathia

As I’ve said elsewhere on this blog I get my recipes from everywhere and this is no exception. All I can credit it to is a chap / chappess called Little Web Wizard who simply posted this recipe on The Motley Fool website which you can find here. I just wanted to cook a pathia … Continue reading

Salmon Teriyaki

As I mentioned yesterday I’m just pulling meat out of the freezer for this week’s evening meals and yesterday I had some cheap salmon fillets to work with. There really isn’t that much in the house as we’re trying to run down stocks before we build them back up again so I thought I’d go … Continue reading

Chilli Keema & Chapatis

Hello again. I decided this week that I was just going to eat whatever is in the freezer and last night’s protein was a 1/2 kilo portion of mince. I didn’t want to go for spag bol or chilli con carne so I thought I’d have a look at some keema which is a traditional … Continue reading

Jim’s Leftover Chicken Soup

We had a roast chicken on Sunday, nothing special, just roast chicken, carrots, peas and gravy. Don’t get me wrong, it was very tasty but what I mean is that there wasn’t a mountain of food and so really the only leftovers were the chicken itself. We’d got it from Tesco and it was pre-stuffed … Continue reading

Cod & Lentils

I was looking on the LoveFood website for an easy fish dish to prepare as I had some cod fillets in the freezer when I came across this recipe for cod and lentils from Omar Allibhoy. Omar trained under both Ferran Adria (El Bulli) and Jason Atherton (Maze) before becoming head chef at El Pirata … Continue reading

Francis Lam’s French Onion Soup Sandwich

I was scouring the Twitterverse again last week and came across a really intriguing recipe for a French Onion Soup… …Sandwich??? I love French Onion Soup and a friend of mine makes a great version which you can find here. I’m also a rather large fan of the simple sandwich so anyone who’s found a … Continue reading

Simple Miso & Chilli Noodle Broth

Last week I put up a recipe for Chaophraya Thai Fish Cakes and I served them with what I called a simple miso and chilli noodle broth. I just thought that what’s simple for me might not be for everyone so I thought I’d expand on it a little. For those who don’t know, and … Continue reading
