Simple White Bread

White Bread

One finds oneself, these days, getting rather sick of all the factory produced bread that litters every supermarket and corner shop in this country. Although it is possible to buy good bread from such places, such loaves tend to be a little on the expensive side. In stark contrast, this loaf is exceptionally good, contains no preservatives and costs next to nothing. It merely requires a little time, but even the effect of this can be lessened by making the dough in advance.

Goan Chicken Curry

Goan Chicken Curry

I’ve been cooking the same trio of curries for quite a while now, and thought it would be best to do something , if not completely different, then slightly different. Most curries made by myself are tomato based; goan curry, however, contains no tomato and is entirely yoghurt based. This does two things: firstly, it makes the curry a lot smoother; and, secondly, it reduces the cost somewhat over a curry which uses both yoghurt and tomato.

Tortilla (Spanish Omelette)

I’ve been wanting to bring you readers this dish for a while now, however my girlfriend decided that each time we had it planned she didn’t like omelette, despite the fact she did this at least twice. Also, my mum hates eggs, yet she eats omelette and quiche, what’s with that? Bloody women. Sorry that slipped out, don’t castigate me.

Stir-Fry Pork

Stir Fry Pork

The problem with coming home for the holiday is that there’s always so much bread, and bread makes you fat quickly, or in  my case… fatter. So I thought I’d throw together something healthy, using many of the left-overs in the house while I was at it. Indeed, left-over pork is ideal for this dish as it makes it even more juicy and means it doesn’t require much cooking at all. This dish is also perfect summer food and if you work out the right balance of flavours, as I’m trying to help you do, it will be very fresh and delicious, the only problem being that it could prove easily overpowered

Penne all’arrabiata

Penne Alla'rrabiata

Recently I’ve been providing more complicated recipes that aren’t on the cheaper side of the frugal scale. Whilst they are still very cheap, I can do better, so I will. There really is nothing nicer than a good, traditional pasta sauce, with simple, yet delicious flavours that don’t try to do anything too complicated. For this reason I have found that basic pasta sauces based around tomato always taste better without any tomato puree or balsamic vinegar, to name but two examples. It is my opinion that the most that should be added are more basic ingredients, chilli or basil for instance.
