Considering how often I cook meatballs, it’s a surprise even to me that I’ve never made lamb koftas. I’ll always order them off a menu and so I went hunting online for some recipes – this is a mix of several. First either finely chop or food-processor half an onion, a clove of garlic and […]
This is really just a quick easy marinade for grilled chicken – I’m optimistically banking on a few September barbies. Drumsticks and thighs are good for flavour and they’re good value – but they can take a while to cook through so I always slash them a few times down to the bone. It also […]
You can’t beat a home-made pie – it’s up there with soup and a cracking roast in terms of ‘most comforting things to cook’ in my book. And it doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming, thanks to frozen pastry. Turkey or chicken and ham pie is a fantastic way to turn leftovers into […]

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 […]
[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D Mid September and we’re having our second BBQ of the year. It’s not been a good summer. Quite taken aback when I popped into M&S for some fish to BBQ and the first thing I saw was a rack of advent calendars. Something screwy with that. You can knock up some […]
