Spicy Chicken Livers on Toast

I was fortunate enough to be treated to a full on Spaghetti Bolognese experience this weekend. Wife went all out and even included chicken livers which really brought a great depth to the sauce. This was doubly brilliant as Wife isn’t usually an offal fan so there’s rarely any in the house. The result was … 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

Vietnamese Chicken Salad

On Sunday we had Roast Chicken and that means leftovers. I imagine there’s going to be a lot of cooked poultry knocking about over the next week or two and I can easily see this recipe working just as well with turkey. It’s not your usual winter dish but it’s a nice change and if anyone … Continue reading

Broccoli Soup

Sometimes you just want something very quick, simple and healthy – look no further. This dish was seen on tele due to one of Nick Nairn’s outings on Ready, Steady, Cook. The recipe is on the BBC Food website and you can find it here. Before we go on, a little word about broccoli. This … Continue reading

Shepherd’s Pie

It’s a classic of British cooking isn’t it, the superb Shepherd’s Pie. I’m thinking if I should just call this blog – “Cooking with Jamie and Delia” as it feels like all of my recent recipes have been from one of these two giants of English home cooking. It’s probably not the case, so I’ll … Continue reading

French Onion Soup

Well it’s been a while hasn’t it? Moving house is hellish, that is all I have to say on the subject! I’ve managed to get a lot of new things cooked over the past 6 weeks but just not had the opportunity to take pictures and write about it. There have been some really good … Continue reading

Lomo Adobado (Pork Loin in Adobo)

Continuing my little experiment with traditional Spanish foods I came across this pork recipe which, by all accounts, is an absolute staple in Spanish households. I’ve seen a number of recipes for this dish but I thought I’d go for the simplest I could find and I found it in the Spanish food section of … Continue reading

Yakitori – Japanese Grilled Skewered Chicken

I’ve been cooking this for so long I really didn’t think I’d remember where I got the recipe from but just in the bottom right hand corner of the scrappy page where it’s written I can just read a web address which would take you here where you can find the recipe I started using a … Continue reading

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

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
