The cowboy's diet packed in a single dish: Steak and coffee.
This is a delicious diabetic and diet-friendly recipe for quiche. I created the recipe for two servings for my wife Laura and me. I put it together on Saturday evenings; cover each bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate. When I get up on Sunday morning, I let Laura sleep in while I make the coffee and put the quiches in the oven. We love the crusty texture that is created on the outside edges when cooked in the Pyrex bowls. The inside stays moist and tender.
This is a classic recipe for Curried Sausages. There's nothing like the taste of a slow cooked sausages in a classic curry sauce. This dish is great for a meal in cold times and can be served with fresh steamed vegetables of your choice. This recipe has been a traditional recipe in my family for years. Very tasty!!
This is a salmon marinade that I created and I really enjoy. Although the ingredients sound spicy, it actually comes out zesty. I cook my fillets in the marinade on a small George Foreman style grill. I create a "boat" out of tinfoil with an open top, so the top burner is touching the meat. They take about 8-10 minutes to cook using that method.
A simple delicious risotto with sun-dried and Roma tomatoes. I like to add in turkey polpettini (small meatballs about the size of a nickel).
If you are tired of plain old oatmeal, spice up your breakfast with this tasteful and healthy recipe!
No, I am not making this up! This is a very old Irish recipe for lobster. Somehow the idea of boiling your lawyer (lobster), then flambeeing him before dousing him in cream, is somehow a justice to the world! Not only is the name fun, but it is an excellent recipe which is great when you have a few quid to spare! If I don't want to go to the hassle of cleaning and boiling the shells, I will sometimes just serve this over toast points, or a pasta of some kind. But the shells make a great presentation!
English muffin pizzas are the ultimate between-meal snack. Ready in minutes and always tasty.
This easy steak marinade will have your friends bringing their steaks to you, asking you to marinate it for them! It adds a delicious, elaborate flavor to any cut of steak.
Simple breakfast, like an omelet but with the eggs substituted for haloumi. Haloumi browns on the outside and doesnt melt, allowing you to mix it with ingredients in the frying pan. Don't be put off by its slightly rubbery texture - it is supposed to be like that and the taste is well worth it. Can be served on toast, or by itself. The haloumi is a good substitute for those who dont like eggs, and tastes good enough for those who do.
Steaks seared in real butter topped with sauted capers. My brother substitutes canned green peppercorns in place of black pepper.
