I love the simplicity of this rocket, caper and parmesan pasta. I love how fresh it tastes. I love how the peppery rocket/aragula is made milder with the addition of the sour capers and i love that the nutty, gritty parmesan compliments it perfectly. I didn’t call it spaghetti because the recipe works well with any pasta! YAY!
OK, first things first. Recently we released a post that was named ‘cookie dough’ but perhaps was better described as a deep pan cookie. We ate it directly from the cast iron pan it was made in and whilst hot, it was gooey and rich and amazing. Whilst everyone who contacted us loved the recipe, some of you didn’t have a cast iron pan. So i practiced and finally came up with this recipe for a Pizza Hut Hot Cookie Dough Copy Cat.
The post for this roast tarragon chicken has been a really long time coming. This is a Gordon Ramsay recipe and i cannot explain to you, just how absolutely delicious it is. It is based on a french classic and involves copious amounts of butter, plenty of aniseedy tarragon and a to die for, chickpea filling. As my pictures demonstrate, i sometimes use rice instead. This is the kind of recipe you always want to have in your back pocket. It is also a recipe that needs to be followed properly to get the best results. Deviate at your peril. Muhahahahaha. Ok, i need to get out more. When i first read the recipe, i did a kind of chicken neck shock move (you know that one, where you take your next back suddenly) when i read the amount of butter in the recipe but when i tasted it, i let that go. Moist, juicy, succulent, rich, melt in the mouth chicken with crispy skin and mushy buttery chick peas. Yes please!
It is a truth universally acknowledged that an indian person with things on their mind will require half a cup of masala chai to solve all their problems. So the success of Chaiiwala (based in Leicester, UK) was inevitable.
I have always loved crispy oven baked potato wedges but only recently started making them myself. Crispy, crunchy potato wedges seasoned perfectly and served with sour cream sounds like a perfect side dish to me. I remember going out in my younger years and devouring a plate of potato wedges dipped in sour cream. I am not really a fan of the frozen variety. In fact I am not a fan of frozen anything. I don’t tend to keep ready meals of any variety in the freezer. I have plenty of frozen fruit and veg though for shakes/granitas/sorbets.
