Fakeaway duck pancakes, lemon chicken and salt&chilli prawns

I love Chinese food, especially dim sum and Sichuan hot pot, but when it comes to takeaway, naff English style dishes are my weakness. There’s something about crispy fried things in a slightly gelatinous sauce that really hits the spot.

Quick roast vegetable tea

Tonight was one of those nights where I wanted something quick, tasty and passingly healthy. “Vegetable corner” of the kitchen looked like it needed a clearing out, so it was a good excuse to roast it all.

Beef and mushroom chilli with sweatcorn cornbread muffins

This year I’ve had more success than last year growing chillis, so it was high time I made a chilli with them. I also managed to grow a tonne of herbs, so I thought I’d make use of them too.

Blooming onions and fried chicken

Many years ago, whilst watching Buffy, Spike (the best Buffy character) mentioned Blooming Onions. The idea piqued my interest, and then I forgot about it.

Green beans with pork, peanut and lentils

A quick writ eup for a quick tea. I had a big bag of green beans that I neeed to use up and some diced pork shoulder in th freezer.

Saag Black Pudding

Recently I’ve been cooking a lot of spiced spinach dishes. It’s a tonne of green vegetables, full of spicy goodness and if you squint you can convince yourself it’s healthy.

Day long marinades and lightly smoked wings and ribs

I’ve not had a lot of time for fun cooking recently, but I’ve bene really enjoying simply cooked meat on the BBQ with fresh salad.

BBQ Garlic mint lamb

My garden is producting a tonne of mint and parsely this summer so everything at the moment is being made with as much of both as I can get away with.

Saag paneer

After a busy week mostly fuelled by snacks and black coffee we needed a dinner full of vegatables than was also satisfying. The combination of a tonne of spinach and cheese fitted the bill.
