Moroccan lamb meatballs with apricots and prunes

Moroccan lamb meatballs with apricots and prunes

I love Moroccan food. For any occasion, there is a dish out there for it, either to snack, or for a warming and hearty supper. The one problem that I have found since I grudgingly started working in London, is that most Moroccan food takes at least 2 hours to cook properly, to bring out...
Mirin-glazed Salmon

Mirin-glazed Salmon

Mirin Glazed Salmon with Rice Noodles and grated vegetable salad I have never been a massive fan of Nigella Lawson. This is mainly because she strikes me a slut, who uses food as her medium to convey this sluttishness. Her cooking and the television shows have been called “food porn,” which is unsurprising, as she...
Easy Green Thai Chicken Curry

I think it’s probably because I feel that is must be healthy and use up many things that I already have in the cupboard or...
The Hangover Salad

The Hangover Salad

This name harbours two connotations..one, that it is a salad, and therefore healthy. The other, that it is hangover food. Which it is. Depending on how you are feeling, you can happily tell yourself that it is sufficiently both! It has all the components of a fry up, so essentially it is ideal for when...

Ox Tail Stew

I made this the other day as an experiment and it was, if I may say, absolutely divine! A real winter warmer, and for those of us who are, more often than not, struggling with the pennies, it is really very good value for money. It is easily obtained from meat markets and there, you...
