Chilli Soy Chicken

It’s been an absolute age since I’ve posted on here and I’m not going to bore you with the reasons why, there are reasons though. Anyway, so I’ve been thinking about simple, tasty food recently that can be cooked without a lot of bother. As you probably know by now I love South East Asian … Continue reading

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

Crisp Cider Braised Pork Belly

I had my parents coming over for Sunday lunch this weekend and so I wanted to do something a bit special. My Dad’s always telling me how he struggles to get pork juicy so what else could I do but a nice piece of crispy pork belly. Also, I didn’t want to be cooking for … Continue reading

Pork Loin with Orange Sauce

I found out this week that pork is the world’s most used protein which initially shocked me but then I thought about bacon, all the different sausages, prosciutto ham, parma ham, shu mai, etc, etc… There’s loads! This time I’m going with one of my favourite cuts of pork, the loin and I’m trying something … Continue reading

Pork Saltimbocca

Saltimbocca is an Italian word which means “jump in the mouth” and if you’ve ever tried the dish you’ll understand why it’s called that. The original recipe calls for veal and I have no problem with eating veal but I couldn’t get any on the day I needed it and so I substituted the veal … Continue reading

Lamb Steaks with Shallot and Sticky Red Wine Sauce

Tesco had a half price deal on lamb steaks this week so a pack ended up in the fridge and I thought I’d go for a kind of ‘summer roast dinner’ so I went for this recipe alongside a really simple recipe for roast summer vegetables. You can find the original recipe for this dish … Continue reading

Jim’s Honey, Mustard & Thyme Chicken

This all began with a rather poor shopping trip earlier in the week, didn’t pick up half the things I was going to need so I either had to go back to the shops or be a bit creative. I went for the latter. Ingredients: 400g boneless chicken thigh 3 tbsp wholegrain mustard 2 tbsp … Continue reading

Chimichurri Sauce

Continuing with my week of sauces I finished off on Friday last week with a great sauce from Argentina which apparently goes really well with both chicken and steak – we went for steak. It’s not known where the names comes from, although there are many ideas, but it’s very popular in South America and … Continue reading

Pork Loin with White Wine Mustard Sauce

I’m definitely still looking at sauces a lot more at the moment and I’m surprised at how effective some of these really simple recipes are. I can’t believe that I was once ‘afraid’ of trying to cook a sauce… So last week I went for a red wine sauce with balsamic vinegar and lots of … Continue reading

Moules Provençale – Mussels with Tomatoes, Herbs & Garlic

I’m still thinking a lot about simple protein plus sauce dishes and a flick through the Epicurious website led me to a few dishes that I fancied trying out. I made my order for delivery at Tesco.com and I thought the first thing I’d cook would be the mussels so they were as fresh as … Continue reading
