We love pasta, and have recently been trying out lots of new recipes 🙂 You may have guessed from the picture that we didn’t use fusilli here, but instead went for some elk-shaped pasta that I found in Ikea (we love novelty pasta too, haha!). This is a simple but delicious dish that is perfect for a week night – if you’re making it veggie then make sure you use a veggie substitute for the Parmesan.
Lemon posset is one of those things that I’ve seen on loads of cookery shows, but have never got around to making – until now! It’s surprisingly easy to make and tastes delicious, so if you’re looking for something to make for friends I’d highly recommend it. The amounts here serve 2 people, but you could easily double up the quantities. Serve in some small glasses or ramekins (my UK followers might recognise these ones if you’ve ever eaten a Gu dessert – we’ve recycled the ramekins they came in!).
This weekend looks set to be a lovely sunny weekend, so get your picnic baskets out and get out there! This recipe for Ginger Crunch is the perfect to make to take out on a picnic – it really is so SO good 🙂 Ginger is definitely one of my favourite flavours, and if (like me) you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love this recipe! The fudge topping is really easy to make, and will set really quickly at room temperature, so no need to put it in the fridge. The original recipe says to use a 24 x 34 cm baking tin, but I used my brownie pan to get a much thicker version!
When it comes to fish, I must admit that I’m not particularly adventurous. I basically don’t like eating anything if it can look at me, so that rules out quite a lot (I know that’s ridiculous, but…)! In addition to that, I don’t really like the fact that a lot of fish is just a bit faffsome to eat. So this recipe is perfect – you flake the cooked fish before adding it to the rest of the ingredients, and the chorizo works so well! Yum 🙂 We made it for the second time tonight, and it’s one of those recipes that works well every time, so I just had to share it.
We made this dish using leftovers from the roast shoulder of lamb with herbs and honey, and both dishes are truly delicious. I must apologise for the photo of this one – I was so hungry when I took it so it’s a bit blurry, oops! But I promise you it is worth making! Continue reading
