  • Lamb ste..eugh
    on Aug 30, 2010 in lamb stew
    Tonight's delight: lamb stew with courgettes, recipe number 798. It was quite nice as far as these things go, although the aubergines, courgettes, peppers and tomatoes were all quite bland and rather watery, so the stew was rather watery too. And th...
  • Some successful dishes...I'd rather do anything than clean the kitchen...except for ironing. Ok, so I'd rather do anything than clean the kitchen OR do the ironing.But I can't cook in an untidy kitchen...or even eat, if the dishes aren't done (and I have a dishwasher so ther...
  • Fish for a fisherwoman
    on Aug 22, 2010 in Salmon seafood
    How could I resist a dish entitled 'fisherwoman's salmon baked with prawns and mussels' (632), although I am no fisherwoman. I served it with squid because that was the only combination I could buy plain uncooked mussels in (they came in a bag togeth...
  • Hardly haute cuisine...recipe number 199 (Chinese-style rice) sounds like the kind of vegetable-packed dish that should be suitable for vegetarians but in reality is the kind of dish that makes you want to be vegetarian, containing as it does carrots, green pepper and b...
  • Do fried onions count as one of your five a day?
    on Aug 19, 2010 in onions
    Never mind cooking my way through 1080 Recipes in one year, I could occupy myself for 365 days writing a blog about the things I hate (now there's a thought), like how the postman ALWAYS leaves my gate open after delivering the mail (why?), how workm...
  • Chemma's trifle
    on Aug 17, 2010
    I haven't been on here for over a week because my computer and my laptop both broke (so did my car and my TV but they are different stories...) all in the same week. I do actually despise technology, and yearn for an almost-Amish state of being. I ha...
  • Walnut pâté en croûte
    on Aug 9, 2010 in Walnut pâté en croûte
    I am amazed at myself- today I went on the world's very first boat lift, then I came home, went shopping, did my washing and washing up and then made the dish below...yes, I know other people do all this on a daily basis, but I have been unemployed f...
  • Bonito marmitako
    on Aug 7, 2010 in bonito tuna marmita marmitako
    I've wanted to make this for ages- the photo above doesn't exactly do it justice. I think it may be my new favourite- along with all my other favourites. The Ortegas' brisk and efficient writing style doesn't usually allow for background prose about...
  • Holy moly, what a guacalmoe!
    on Aug 5, 2010 in guacamole
    I never thought that anyone could top my own recipe for guacamole (a Mexican speciality gleaned from a Scottish girl I met in Spain and honed in England over the years). The perfect recipe- up until now- included finely grated garlic, the grated fles...
  • Lemon yoghurt is an exotic ingredient, apparently
    on Aug 4, 2010 in Sponge cake
    The other day I made the sponge made with yoghurt and lemon, recipe number 933, in order to try out my new Lakeland mini-star tin. Voilà:How magnificent does that look? I should mention that it's my second tin (kindly replaced by the lovely customer...
