Pork Chops with Cherry Salsa
The pork looks a bit frazzled on this photograph but I can assure you is wasn’t, it was lovely. Mr S even cut the fat off mine for me once cooked as he knows what I’m like! I thought he might have got rid of the bones too, I’m such a child.
This was my slight adaptation of a recipe on the M & S App.
Heat the oven to 190ºc (fan)
Brown some pork chops for a minute on either side.
Mix olive oil,…
Pot Roast Chicken with Lemon, Fennel, Peas & Beans
What a great summer alternative for Sunday dinner. The flavours in this are so fresh and it’s a good excuse for a Sunday afternoon bottle of wine.
The recipe is in last months Delicious Magazine and can be found here. It;s an easy one too.
Heat the oven to 180ºc (Fan).
Gently separate the skin from the breast of a chicken (not my favourite job, I admit) and pop a couple of knobs of butter under.…
Pasta with Chorizo & Prawns
I was looking through my old posts for inspiration and decided upon this one although I didn’t add any extra spice. A lovely and fresh pasta dish.
Pop oil and diced shallots along with a bit of black pepper into a frying pan, turn on the heat and cook gently until the shallot is softened.
Add sliced chorizo and turn up the heat a little, as it begins to release it’s oil and chopped fresh tomatoes…
Asian Spiced Kedgeree
The first comment I got when I said we were having a kedgeree was ‘Is it Christmas?’, a well worn joke in this house as it’s boxing day fodder. Obviously we don’t need that excuse for a meal like this but let me just take a moment to point something out – Christmas is only four months away – FOUR!!!
Nigella’s recipe serves 6 but as there is only two of us, one decent sized piece of salmon was…
Rostis with Bacon, Sweet Shallots & Poached Eggs
I applaud you if you can make your poached eggs look as good as the chefs but I can’t, I can cook them right but they are not the prettiest. It’s all about the vortex apparently but still, mine were perfectly cooked yolks with a long stringy white tail.
Here’s what we did.
Peel and grate a few potatoes. Using a tea towel, strain out as much liquid as possible. Season and divide into rounds, I…
Chilli Chicken with Salsa
We were having a discussion on how I came to own Delia’s How to Cook: Book Three and not books One and Two. The reality is – price offers. A lot of my early cookbooks, I bought just because they were a good price at the supermarket. I’m not sure I’ve even used this book before, maybe once.
This combines my love of a chilli and Mr S’ love of chicken. It takes a while but is well worth the wait.…
