Salted Caramel Sauce

You may have seen my recent post for frozen yoghurt which is delicious all by itself but what isn’t enhanced with the flavour of caramel? With the permission of our friend Adam and Joanne at Inspired Taste I’ve tried out they’re Salted Caramel Sauce recipe and I’m glad I did… Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups sugar 1/3 … Continue reading

Frozen Yoghurt

I scream, you scream, we all scream for frozen yoghurt… Gotta love a bit of frozen yoghurt in your life. There’s been little stands popping up in high streets and shopping centres for a while now but it’s really easy to make it at home – and pretty cheap too. Ingredients: 500ml greek yoghurt 250ml … Continue reading

Braised Red Cabbage

I was cooking a large shoulder of pork and I didn’t want to go overboard on the side dishes so I just went for some roast potatoes and this braised red cabbage with balsamic vinegar. There are many recipes for this out there, you can find it with apple or juniper or a myriad of other … Continue reading

Roast Potatoes

Some would say these are the perfect accompaniment to any roast dinner – who am I to argue there? The only place we might come to a disagreement is in the size of the perfect roast spud. Personally I like them quite small, less than the size of ping pong ball. I find you get … Continue reading

6 Hour Slow Roasted Pork

Once again I’ve succumbed to a Jamie recipe. I can’t really envisage roasting a joint without first consulting either Jamie or Delia, it just makes me feel more secure in what I’m doing. No doubt I’ll be able to wean myself off them in the fullness of time but for now I’m going to keep them around as my … Continue reading

For those who don’t know the difference, Shepherd’s Pie uses lamb, Cottage Pie uses beef. As I do a lot of Jamie and Delia dishes I thought it only … Continue reading

Jim’s Spicy Peanut Brittle

Before we go any further, working with molten sugar can be dangerous so, if you’re not sure, don’t bloody do it! Peanut brittle is an absolute favourite of mine, I’ve loved it since I was a little kid and I think I always will. I’ve been making my own for a bit now and I recently … Continue reading

Apple, Ginger & Carrot Juice

We’ve had a juicer in the house for about a year now and it’s seen some good use. Wife hasn’t been too well lately and we had a few extra apples in the house so I said I’d make her a nice healthy juice. Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a simple 2 minute … Continue reading

Jim’s Garlic Pork Loin Steaks

This was supposed to be something completely different, until I realised I had the wrong ingredients in the house, read on and see how easily you can avert a disaster with a quick Google search and a bit of creativity. Pernil is a Puerto Rican dish that is usually a slow roasted joint of pork … Continue reading
