My 2013 200 beer challenge – and a Top 40

Last year I started using the Untappd (drink socially) app to track the beers I drank. I covered most of the familiar, usual brews that I drank so for 2013 set myself a new challenge – to try 200 new beers in the year. Unlike many (all) of the other New Year resolutions that I’ve […]

My 2012 200 beer challenge – and a top 20

As well as a love of cooking, I’ve always had a keen interest in beer – particularly in seeking out and trying new and different beers to try. With a real explosion in real ales and craft beers over the last couple of years this has become much easier (and more enjoyable). At the start […]

Cauliflower cheese

Cauliflower cheese

Such an easy dish, this. Takes no time to cook and livens up a tea time very easily – perfect to make a pork chop or chicken thigh a little bit more exciting. And saves on making a separate sauce. Pop the oven on to 200 decC to get warm. Separate a cauliflower into florets […]

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D A couple of weeks ago I had a tweet from Worldfoods asking me if I was interested in joining a team to take on a few culinary challenges.

A short series of fishy ideas – introduction

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D I said in my first post of the year that I was looking for ways to eat more fish. Then along came Channel 4’s fascinating and shocking Fish Fight series, raising the issue of widening the repertoire of fish we eat. They’ve already had some great results for their campaign.

Top Five Easy Teas of 2010

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D I had a new year’s email from the nice chaps at WordPress this week with lots of useful facts and figures about my blog. I sort of keep an eye on the stats I see in terms of how many people are reading, but I don’t really have much of an […]

Been away, but back now

I’ve been a bad bloggist, sorry. First Christmas and then a new kitchen being put in disrupted my cooking – I’ve built up quite a backlog of ideas for easyteas so will be working hard over the next couple of weeks to share those here. I’m missing pics for many due to cooking in a […]

A big pot of chilli con carne

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D I think the key to a good chilli is time. It’s very quick to put together but does need about an hour on the hob. It’s something I’ll often cook for tomorrow’s tea at the same time as something quick for tonight’s. I think red kidney beans are the work of […]
