Chicken Laksa Recipe

Chicken Laksa Recipe I know, I know, laksa should not have chicken. Prawns, cockles and all that is so not my bag. So I have reverted to have a couple of prawns, and chicken for the main meat elements. This is my Chicken Laksa Recipe, as an alternative to the rather fishy version you are likely to consume in the hawkers and coffee shops. Have a go at something different. This will feed about 6 people. Yes there is a slight cheat, but it's just to create the base. You will need; ...

Boiled eggs with Paprika Sauce

Boiled eggs with Paprika Sauce I was starving one day, and could not be bothered to go all out cooking, and came up with this little dish; Boiled eggs with Paprika Sauce. So very simple, but so very delicious. Looks pretty nice too right? I think inspiration came from Devilled Eggs. This was snack for yours truly only - but if you want to cook for two, simply double up, if for 3 treble up etc. Stick 2 eggs in a pan of cold water. Bash on the heat. Set the clock for 15 minutes and there ...

Deconstructed and reconstructed avocados

Deconstructed and reconstructed avocados I saw some pictures somewhere of a really interesting concept for an avocado type dish and thought I'll have a go at something similar, and in turn created my deconstructed and reconstructed avocados. This is a superb side dish or starter. It's quite acidic so it would be great with beef, or something with a strong sauce to cut through that. Plus I think my deconstructed and reconstructed avocados looks really nice back in the skin/shell. OK ...

Breakfast sandwich 0900am one day. I was so sleepy. And then I get from Ollie; "Dad where's my breakfast?" Despite my tiredness this turned out to be spanking. Truly spanking. Ollie gave this a major thumbs up. I had one bite, and man oh man do I agree with that verdict. A simple, and simply delicious brekkie sandwich - my Breakfast sandwich. . There is  no need for me to list the ingredients for my Breakfast sandwich, as it all happens in sequence. It is such an easy, but bloody ...

Roman Stuffed Bread – a 2000 year old recipe

Roman Stuffed Bread - a 2000 year old recipe Quite a few years ago now, we had a UK jaunt that included a trip to Stonehenge.Whilst there, we wandered around the gift shop, and I procured a rather interesting cook book.

A meandering journey through British food, offering up true historic recipes through the ages from the Celts, Romans, Anglo Saxons, Normans, the Medieval Period, Elizabethans, the Civil War, ...

Asian beef and popcorn

Asian beef and popcorn You simply just must try this, sounds crazy but it is so so good. Some of the ingredients for Asian beef and popcorn will sound a tad crazy, but believe me together they work so so very well. You get flavours and textures all in one. This received a massive thumbs up from all that were eating it this day. I made this recipe up having seen an article in an inflight magazine that used popcorn. With my impending birthday/house-warming BBQ coming soon I have been ...
