BIG recipes

Recipes we like. Not necessarily to share with the kids.

Easi Risi E Bisi

by

We had everything we needed for this recipe in the pantry and fridge, except the shallots and fresh peas (although we’ve a few packs of frozen peas, so we could have coped quite well).

Potato And Leek Soup

by

I love making this soup. Not because it’s easy, although it isn’t hard. And not because it’s quick, because it takes about an hour and a half from start to stop. The reason I love it is that my wife loves it, and I love making her happy.

Delicious Gourmet Mini Cheeseburgers

by

The first time I made them I was really only trying to impress Tracey and I didn’t take into account my kids would devour them eagerly as well, so unfortunately I ended up eating baked beans for dinner. Is there a greater measure than this?

Grandma’s Lambs Brains

by

These are not for everyone. Judging by the reactions of the members of this family only one in seven people find the idea of eating lambs brains tenable. And even amongst us who love to eat them, I think there’s a real drop off in numbers of those who are prepared to make the dish.

Dukkah

by

If you’re looking for something simple but awesome to set in front of the telly or for pre-BBQ nibbles, you really can’t go past this sort of thing. It can all be prepared ahead of time (by which I mean ‘bought’) and takes only minutes to assemble.

Homemade Hummus Dip Is Easy

by

Hummus is one of those things you buy without realizing how simple it is to make. And by simple I mean this took longer to assemble all the ingredients and processor than it did to put together.

Holy Guacamole

by

Bought dips are great but there’s nothing quite like putting together fresh ingredients to come up with something far superior to really treat your taste buds.

Tuna Pasta Bake

by

In keeping with the idea of showing you our family’s favourite tummy fillers – favourite for us because they’re easy and for them because they’re tasty and lots of it – here’s our tuna pasta bake.
