You may have seen my last takeover of Mummy's writing, anyway, I'm back. She's busy on her phone pretending to work when really I know she's on facebook, looking up people she used to know but didn't like well enough to stay proper friends with. Mothers are funny like that. If I don't like someone I just throw a plastic brick at them. Or bite them. I like to be clear.
Last week I was asked to judge The Great British Bacon Off. Well, given I ate bacon with not one, but two meals on the day before the contest, I reckon I was fit for the job. This recipe, made by Sophie, was the winner.
Madrid was littered with rookie mini break errors. We have just booked Rome. Rome will be different. We will ace Rome. And until Rome I will mostly be eating this soup. Because I really want to look slim and chic in Rome and I reckon this is a delicious way to get there.
Serve with a simple tomato sauce made by heating chopped tomatoes with a tbsp of olive oil, a little salt, pepper and a teaspoon of sugar for 20 minutes. Add some dried oregano and you're done. These are delicious with any pasta and of course, rice too...
I love an oven baked quiche as much as the next person but sometimes I have neither the time nor the inclination for making pastry. This recipe is a nifty way to get that quiche flavour; the carby hit usually provided by the pastry, instead offered by the egg soaked bread.
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Place the pork in a large roasting tray and bake for 30 minutes, turning the pork once. In the meantime mix all the other ingredients together and set aside.
Here's a recipe for a takeaway classic that's incredibly easy (plus cheaper and healthier) to make at home, whether looking to fill the freezer or just wanting an easy mid-week supper. Serve with the veggie ribbon noodles to get all of your five a day in one meal.
We're set for a heat wave. Did you hear? It starts tomorrow. Let's eat outside and what's more, get the kids making the food. Put that Prittstick away! These three recipes provide lots of short term concentration span activities.
Summer's on the way and it's time to make the most of our beautiful strawberries. I'm not going to suggest you serve them with black pepper. I'm not going to suggest you drizzle them in balsamic. I'm just not in approval of going in that direction...
I'll stop being emotional now (and no, I'm not pregnant). Onto the recipe. This is another of my granola recipes. Gosh, if I carry on at this rate I'll have enough for a book. Though I'm not sure anyone would buy '101 granola recipes', what do you think?
