Do you have those days when cooking is the last thing on your mind? You’re tired and a bit fed up but family demands food? Today’s recipe for my Cheat’s Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas (Beans) is perfect for one of those days. It’s an uncomplicated, home cooked meal with some easy shortcuts thrown in for good measure. And guess what? It delivers on flavour too and with a little bit of planning it can be on your table in under half an hour!
Coleslaw must be one of the most popular Summer salads and you really cannot beat the homemade one. My Creamy Summer Coleslaw has couple of extra ingredients added for some crunch and a bit of colour, all covered in most delicious creamy dressing! Perfect picnic, potluck and bbq accompaniment!
Do you remember my Sweet Blueberry Buns with Lemon Glaze I shared with you couple of weeks ago? I warned you back then that another blueberry and lemon bake was coming your way. And here it is – Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze!
Asparagus must be one of my favourite spring vegetables! I absolutely adore these gorgeous spears and am guilty of eating them straight from the steamer or a pan. Many a time they don’t even make it to the plate but in case of my Pancetta Wrapped Asparagus Soldiers with Fried Egg they obviously did but only just. 🙂
Welcome to #BakingCrumbs May 2018 round up full of fabulous recipes linked up during the month of May! On top of that, I will also reveal which recipe I decided to recreate in my kitchen!
I haven’t really blogged many Polish recipes since I started Jo’s Kitchen Larder but today’s recipe is one of them and it is a gem! Sweet Blueberry Buns with Lemon Glaze, called Jagodzianki in Polish are well known and truly loved treat.
I don’t know about you but despite the fact that weather is finally heading in the right direction with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures I still cannot say no to some comfort food cooking. Having said that, this particular Wild Garlic Pesto Chicken Casserole with Cheesy Dumplings (I know it’s a mouthful lol) has in fact really summery feel to it and is full to the brim with veg too.
Couple of weeks back I shared a snap of my photo shoot set up for this Easy Rhubarb Cake on Instagram Stories. It was a lovely, sunny day and slightly passed my lunchtime so you will not be surprised that I ended up scoffing the slice as soon as photos were taken! Definitely not my everyday working lunch but once in a while it’s ok plus I had to stay true to myself and my “waste not” philosophy so that was that! 🙂
Summer is finally here! Ok let me rephrase, it definitely popped in for a visit over the Bank Holiday weekend and wasn’t the weather glorious! Glorious and hot and when proper hydration becomes priority. Having had rhubarb delivered in my veg box on Friday I thought it would be only appropriate (having already baked a cake which I shall be sharing with you soon) to concoct some sort of refreshing drink. This Rhubarb & Ginger Cooler with Mint & Lemon turned out to be a perfect thirst quencher during last weekend!
We are huge roast chicken fans here and eat it quite a lot. As much as we all love proper full blown roast chook dinner, when it comes to midweek cooking roast chicken thighs and drumsticks will win every time! This Roast Chicken with Wild Garlic Pesto & Shallots came about when I was looking for ways to use my gorgeous Wild Garlic & Walnut Pesto and as I had a bag of shallots from my weekly veg box still untouched I decided to throw these in for their lovely sticky sweetness. The result was incredible!
Continuing my love affair with wild garlic, today I’ve got for you this fantastic Wild Garlic & Walnut Pesto! Its flavour is simply incredible and quite different from the store bought one due the use of wild garlic of course but also walnuts instead of pine nuts. Pesto is super versatile and can be used in so many dishes either as a main player or flavour enhancer. Did I mention that it is super quick and easy to make plus if you make your own you know exactly what’s in it!
