Who wouldn’t want to get home from work and find the ingredients for a tasty cocktail on their doorstep?
I’m a huge fan of simple cooking and easy recipes. I also love bread but haven’t had much success in making my own until I discovered this super simple recipe.
If I’m honest, this could be better described as a giant savoury muffin or scone, but it serves every purpose a fresh loaf would. My favourite way to enjoy this would be heating up a chunk in the microwave for 10 seconds and smothering it in butter – ultimate comfort snack!
- 250g self raising flour
- 25g butter
- 180ml milk
- 100g grated cheese
- 1/2 top salt
These brownies really do speak for themselves with their oozy salted caramel spilling out onto the plate – YUM! 😍
Think that sexy and porridge shouldn’t appear in the same sentence together? Well I’m here to prove you wrong – look! Just look at it!
I started buying frozen fruit to use in my smoothies but one day I decided to add a handful of frozen blueberries to my daily porridge. I’ve eaten this breakfast every morning for years – made with skimmed milk, cooked in the microwave and with a spoonful of honey to finish. What a winning decision adding frozen fruit to the mix was! It makes your already very healthy porridge taste so much better, as well as giving you one of your 5-a-day. (more…)
Second in my mini series of recipes (see olives marinated in chillies and oregano here) after my recent Olive it! cookery class experience, is a recipe for olives marinated in ginger, cinnamon and cardamom. Sound like a funny combination? I thought so too but they are delicious, so trust me on this one!
- 1 jar or tin of ‘turning colour’ or black olives
- 100ml of mild olive oil
- 2 cardamom pods
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 kaffir lime leaves
- 2cm of ginger
- Drain the olives from the brine and place them in a bowl.
- Peel and thinly slice the ginger, crush the cardamom pods, cinnamon stick and the kaffir lime leaves, before mixing it all in with the olives and olive oil.
- Leave to stand for 20 minutes then enjoy the freshly marinated olives or keep in the fridge for up to a month in a tightly sealed container.
