Thai Chicken Noodle Soup
Even if you don't have much chicken left over, you should still make this. A few shreds will be plenty. (And this recipe is worth bearing in mind even when your starting point is not leftover chicken: if you were to bung in some frozen prawns at the end, making sure you cook them through, this would make for a fabulous storecupboard supper.) This is a very laissez-faire recipe all round, actually: when I cooked it for the photo shoot I forgot to put the vegetables in and it was still…
American Breakfast Pancakes
These are those thick, spongy American pancakes that are often eaten with warm maple syrup and crisp fried bacon. I love them with the syrup alone, but if you do want bacon, I think streaky is best. You can easily cook these pancakes by dolloping the batter onto a hot griddle (smooth, nor ridged, side) or heavy based pan. For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
Flourless Chocolate Lime Cake With Margarita Cream
There is something about a flourless chocolate cake that makes it so damn easy to eat. This is one of my fallback favourites for pudding when I have friends over for supper. For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
Chicken With Spring Onions, Chilli and Greek Yogurt
The sauce borrows from the idea of tsatsiki and all those Middle-Eastern yogurt salads - it is a cool, pungent accompaniment to the tender, but not strongly flavoured, chicken. For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
I can't tell you how often I get asked to make this at home. This is something of a culinary pun: it looks like a pizza, but its base is made out of meatball mixture, moreover a meatball mixture you don't have to roll into balls but can simply press into a tin, rather like a juicy disc of meatloaf, or polpettone. For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
Gin and Tonic Jelly
This is so far from being the sort of jelly you'd expect at a children's party as can be imagined! The white currant decoration may be unavailable, but what matters is the drink-made-dessert itself! If you are unable to find gelatine leaves, you can use powdered gelatine instead. For the UK we recommend 6 teaspoons unflavoured powdered gelatine and for the US 5½ teaspoons unflavored powdered gelatin. At step 2, put 5 tablespoons cold water in a small bowl and sprinkle over the gelatine. Let…
This is really a free-form pizza-like tart, which I made for the first time while we were doing the photography for How To Be A Domestic Goddess. We happened to have some polenta pastry left over and some spare blackberries in the fridge and I, suddenly rebelling against the planning and rule-following necessary to get all the food photographed, played around. This was the result. And really, you could use any fruit. I'd stick with the polenta or cornmeal pastry only because nothing soaks up…
Strawberry and Almond Crumble
If I’d had to choose one thing that cooking could not make better, I’d have put good money on its being a bad (as in unripe and tasteless) strawberry. I’d be embarrassed even to own up to trying to improve it, were it not for the fact that I read an article by Saint Simon of Hopkinson in which he advised using said strawbuggers in a pie. So I did. Well, that’s not quite true: I am lazier than he is, so I made a crumble. I don’t know what, how or why it happened, but this is a crumble of…
Instant pancakes mix - preparato secco per pancakes
Mitica Nigella Lawson!!! Per chi ama le frittelle americane ,questa ricetta permette di prepararle in pochissimo tempo,basta aggiungere gli ...
Look, the name is meant to be a bit of a joke, but what I'm talking about is a pitta-like bread, glazed golden with beaten egg and sprinkled with nigella seeds. This is what I make when I'm in mezze-mode. It's not hard, and although I love some of the flatbreads you can buy, it gives me more pleasure to make these, doubling the quantity and putting the flat oval loaves in the oven in batches so there's always a wooden board of warm, dippable bread on the table. For US cup measures, use the…
Chicken Traybake With Bitter Orange and Fennel
I don’t think I could say how often I’ve made this since settling into my new kitchen. Not that I’m ashamed of being repetitive – I find that comforting – but I’ve simply cooked it too often to count. This, as it cooks, fills your kitchen with its gentle anise and citrus scent, working as well in midwinter with in-season Seville oranges as it does in summer with eating oranges, their sweetness soured by lemon. I always get the chicken in its marinade a day ahead, but if you don’t have time…
Che cos'è la fluffosa? Me lo chiedono ormai in tanti (2 o 3 persone in effetti e fra queste mia mamma). La Fluffosa è una chiffon cake. Tutto qui? Tutto 'sto rumore per 'na ciambella?? Una torta semplice ma realmente buonissima, che la mitica Miss Fluff Monica Zacchia ha saputo far fluffare talmente in alto da renderla un'icona. Ha così accompagnato il raduno nazionale di noi bloggalline e da allora lega noi food blogger, che abbiamo iniziato a fluffare ... cercate su Facebook con l'ashtag…
Norwegian Cinnamon Buns
The Northern Europeans, and especially the Scandinavians, are wonderful bakers and eating these for breakfast or tea on a cold winter's day makes me feel grateful for a climate many moan about. But then, I've always thought that bad weather has its compensations, most of them culinary. For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
