What's for Dinner Tonight

Lemon Grass Fish Cakes with Lime Spiked Mayonnaise.


I'm just not ready to give into Autumnal stodge yet. This recipe manages to eke out Summer a little longer but still has the comfort food factor. Hope you like it... 


Coconut and Mint Lamb Curry.


I have spent the weekend discovering new food blogs, there are some really inspiring ones and so many brilliant and inventive recipes. Here's a lovely dish that I'm going to have a bash at this week.


Sicilian Pasta with Anchovies and Bread Crumbs


I add chilli to this. Lovely with a cold, crisp glass of Prosecco. That'll do nicely thank you. 

Brilliant blog too.

Keralan Coconut Prawn Curry


If ever there was a recipe to cradle you in joy and contentment this is it. I have nothing else to add, what can I say? Perfection.


Easy Fish Tagine


O.k this is really easy bung it in a pan food. Stick a lid on it and wait until done. I am sometimes even too lazy to marinade the fish first. I just make up the marinade and add it to the pot along with the rest of the ingredients. Hope you like it. 

Peanut Butter Cups 

As it's my brother's birthday I'm going to sneak in an extra recipe today. If you love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, you'll be amazed that you can make your own that taste just as good. I use cornflakes instead of Graham crackers and your favourite milk chocolate can be substituted for chocolate chips. Happy Birthday M.W


Spanish Chicken with Chorizo and Potatoes


This is amazingly easy and satisfies that chickeny craving. Without wishing to improve on Nigella's perfection, I prefer this recipe without the orange zest. I add a tin of tomatoes (drained of juice)  ten minutes before the end of cooking time, makes it a bit more saucy!


Sweet Potato Tortilla with Pepper Sauce


Perfect Monday night fare! O.k I know it's not strictly authentic, but it tastes gorgeous, so who cares! Tortilla is a real standby for us, we always have too many eggs from our chickens. I chuck in any veg that I have around and lots of fresh herbs (or dried!). This one is a little more sophisticated and well worth a try. Enjoy!


Greek Roasted Vegetables (Briam)


I love this recipe. It is a real staple dish in Greece, served as a main course. We eat it with pita bread, garnished with lots of feta, a squeeze of lemon and good drizzle of olive oil. Contrary to what it says, this one seems pretty authentic. Use about a tablespoon of dried oregano if you haven't foraged for the wild stuff! Dried mint is fine too, use about a teaspoon. Happy eating...
