Rosemary & Lemon Chicken Risotto

There’s one rule in our house when it comes to making dinner: If in doubt, cook a risotto. I am confident that we will always the ingredients in the cupboard to make a perfectly...

Monkfish and Prawn Curry

I’ve deliberately avoiding giving this delicately spiced Monkfish and Prawn Curry a geographic moniker. It’s partly for the inevitable fear that I’ll cause offence – something many cooks do on a regular basis. Though...

Toad in the Hole

I’ve heard it said in the past that everything tastes better when it’s covered in batter. In many ways that’s not too far from the truth… Fish and Chips. Tempura Prawns. Deep-fried Ice Cream. All...

Pepperoni and Mozzarella Chicken

When I first created this recipe I wanted to call it Pizza-Stuffed Chicken. Mostly on account of the pepperoni and mozzarella filling, but also because it sounds good. Trouble is pizza comes in so many varieties...

Yasai Cha Han

I admit that I’ve been very rude about Tofu in the past, so posting a recipe where it’s a main ingredient may seem a little odd. The jury is still out on whether I...

Meatball Pasta Bake

If there’s one thing I know that my husband, family or friends will say about me it’s that I have a flair for the dramatic in life. Indeed, for many years one of the...

Viennese Whirls

I love baking but find that I mostly stick to what I know (i.e. cakes) and rarely venture into the world of biscuits. Part of me worries that there’s more that can go wrong....

Firecracker Prawns

Two spicy meals in the space of a couple of weeks? Lucky me! Once again, Michael was away with work which meant that I could go crazy with the chilli and make these Firecracker...

Slow-Cooked Venison Ragù

You may have noticed that I’ve got a bit of comfort food obsession of late, but then again you can hardly blame me at this time of the year. We may have had a...

Lemongrass Chicken

This dish has had quite a long gestation in my repertoire… It all started many years ago – and I mean many years – when I was out for dinner with friends. As is so...

Lamb Curry

You may have noticed that this is the first Lamb recipe in my collection, and what a place to start! This slow-cooked curry uses neck fillet, braised in a lightly-spiced tomato sauce for well...

Spinach, Chard and Courgette Lasagne

I often like to plan a week’s meals in advance. I’ll sit down with my recipe books, websites and a blank sheet of paper and come up with some ideas of what I’d like...

Chilli Pork Ramen

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that Michael and spicy food do not go well together. As far as I can tell it’s not a flavour issue, it’s a comfort one. Spicy food causes him...

Chicken, Pancetta & Leek Filo Pie

I admit that there’s not much original about combining chicken, bacon (or in this case pancetta) and mushroom in a pie filling. However, I do think that this succeeds where so many others can...

Breakfast Pizza

It turns out that I am a total sucker for online advertising. I kept seeing an advert in my Instagram feed for a low-calorie, gluten free pizza dough that was only 39kcal per serving....

No-Cook Pizza Sauce

For me the tomato sauce on a pizza can be a make or break ingredient. No matter how much effort you go into with the toppings it can all be for nought if you...

Extra Crispy Fish Pie

As far as I’m concerned you’d have to go a long way to find a dinner more comforting than a homemade Fish Pie. I suspect it’s the combination of a cheesy sauce, mashed potatoes...

Crispy Marshmallow Bites

Happy Halloween!  Even though I’m not a huge fan of Halloween a lot of my friends really get into the spirit of the season and enthusiasm can be infectious. Though rather than dressing up...

Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto

I fear that as I add recipes to Scott’s Food Rocks you’ll start thinking that I’ve gone a bit Risotto mad! This is my second recipe for risotto in a month and there are...

Pork Loin with Roasted Apple and Calvados Sauce

When my parents go on holiday to Continental Europe by car they always manage to bring me back the perfect gifts – namely food and drink. If they’ve been through Spain and Portugal it...

Oven-Baked Pork Belly Tonkatsu

The Japanese have pretty much perfected the art of making food extra delicious by covering it in a crispy coating. I’ve already shared my Chicken Katsu Curry recipe with you this week and hot...

Tonkatsu Sauce

Although I pretty much only make Tonkatsu Sauce to go with Tonkatsu Pork I suspect it would work well wherever you use Barbecue Sauce. Much like my regular Barbecue Sauce this starts with a ketchup...

Chicken Katsu Curry

Every time we go to Wagamama Michael will order the same thing: Chicken Katsu Curry. I can’t say I blame him as it’s a cracking dish and always guaranteed to taste good. The main reason...
