 We eat a lot of chicken in our house and I am always looking for new things to do with it so that it doesn\'t get boring. I don\'t think that I, personally, could ever get bored of it, but my husband sure could!  (Men!)  I do like to please...

Lemon, Lime & Ginger Curd

Lemon, Lime & Ginger Curd

 I have to say that one of my absolute favourite things is Lemon Curd.  I could sit down and eat it with a spoon.  I have always made my own. Its not all that hard to do and tastes unbelievably better than the store bought stuff.  Seriously. I...

Potato Chip Cookies

 Have you ever wondered about the complexities of language"  I mean . . .  English is supposed to be English right, but here in the UK a potato chip is called a crisp.  French fries are called chips over here and my family always called them...

Portugese Custard Tarts

Portugese Custard Tarts

 I have a husband who totally adores custard in any way shape or form, but custard tarts are his very favourite way to enjoy it. He loves nothing more than a traditional British Custard tart, chilled and wobbly and heavily dusted with nutmeg. ...

Bake Shop Chocolate Chip Muffins

Bake Shop Chocolate Chip Muffins

 Every time we go to Costco, I look at the muffins.  They look so good, but they are soooooo huge. Most muffins that you buy in the shops are huge, probably twice as big as what you should realistically be eating. I think one of those Costco...

Pork Chops with Spicy Rice

Pork Chops with Spicy Rice

 Red meat is not something we eat a lot of in our house.  We eat it only very occasionally, and when we do, it is bound to be either a steak or pork chops, with the odd bit of lamb here and there, and we both enjoy a good roast or a stew now and...

Five Cup Ambrosia Salad

 When I was a girl and at school, I could hardly wait to be old enough to be able to take Home Economics.  You had to be in Grade 8 to take it, in other words, 14 years of age.  It was divided into three sections or units of tutelage.  One was...

BBQ Beef Sliders with Caramelised Onions.

 We quite like sliders in this house.  Sliders are small sandwiches or burgers baked all together in one  sheet in the oven, and then cut apart into single servings after baking. I have done a few versions of them on here in the past, including

Creamy Sweetcorn Mac & Cheese

 I admit I am a person with quite a few weaknesses when it comes to food . . .  pasta, mac & cheese, creamed corn, tinned tomatoes, cheese, chocolate ANYTHING, oatmeal cookies, salad, hot dogs,  . . .  just to name a few.  Occasionally there is...

Nutmeg Muffins

Nutmeg Muffins

 One of my favourite things is nutmeg.  I love the way it smells and I love the way it tastes.  It is a member of the sweet baking spices, and very fragrant, but its very unique, sweet, nutty and almost astringent flavour, enables it to be able...

Lemon Sauced Crispy Chicken

Lemon Sauced Crispy Chicken

 We do eat a lot of chicken in our home.  Mostly because it is fairly economical and also because you can do a LOT with it.  As there are only two of us now, I tend to buy organic, free-range, cornfed chicken, but I totally understand why larger...

Chive & Shallot Vinaigrette

 I don\'t think I ever had a ready made bottled salad dressing the whole time I was growing up. My mom always made her own salad dressing from scratch.   It was always the same, and never varied, but we didn\'t mind because we loved it.  We...
