Macaroni cheese – ultimate comfort eating?

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D After another week of solid rain and daytime darkness, I’m falling back on comfort food. Anything with mash in/on it is my ultimate comfort dish I think, but macaroni cheese is a serious contender.

Waste not, want not – Great British Waste Menu

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D Just finished watching the Great British Waste Menu. It was a BBC challenge in which four top chefs had to produce a banquet for 60 from food that had been (or would have been) thrown away. The scale of waste is shocking – from farmers ploughing crops which don’t meet supermarket […]

Roasted stuffed tomatoes

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D As the saying goes, life’s too short to go around stuffing mushrooms. So stuff a tomato instead – much quicker and easier. The garden’s full of them at the moment so I’m looking for different things to do to use them up. It’s also a good way to use up leftover […]

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D I’m writing this on Saturday morning so naturally thinking about the weekend breakfast choices. I often make this for a treat on the weekend as it’s a nice change from the usual suspects. I’m justifying  including it here as it’s a lovely light dinner dish too – quick, very little work […]

Sausage pasta in tomato ragu

This is pretty much my all-purpose pasta sauce recipe (the tomato version, anyway – see below for the cheese version). Tonight I’m making it with sausages cos they were on offer in Marksies – got up too late for the market this Saturday. We eat it with turkey quite often too for a good low […]

If there’s a box of eggs in the fridge, you can always make a tasty tea. Just by beating a couple of eggs, you can transform the odds and ends lurking in the back of the fridge into something really rather good in a matter of minutes. Any combination of the following (or anything else […]
