    This is the perfect recipe for any family mid-week supper, as well as for a weekend gathering with friends and a bottle of red wine! Especially as whilst the dish is cooking, you can sit down and enjoy the company of your friends, and family. Any leftovers can be reheated the next day and UI have also frozen this too, with great results.

    Recipe #512383

    I hope you enjoy this simple recipe for these stuffed spuds; other ideas for what to add include chopped ham or bacon, chopped peppers, fried mushrooms and cream cheese too. These baked potatoes can be made ahead of time, before the final baking, and then can be finished off in hot oven or under the grill just before serving, making them mid-week family friendly! (I used an assortment of cheeses I my recipe, bits and pieces that were cluttering up the fridge, which included Cheddar, Shropshire Blue, Caboc and some Somerset Brie. However, any British cheese would be wonderful in this recipe and you can add your favourites. I would like to bake these spuds with some Single Gloucester or Double Gloucester, Yorkshire Fettle and some Cornish Yarg next time, all favourites of mine. And, if you are serving these cheese stuffed potatoes to the little ones, then familiar hard and crumbly cheeses can be used, such as Red Leicester, Wensleydale, Cheshire or Lancashire)

    My recipe for Chargrilled Asparagus & Spring Onions with Chive Flowers is simple and yet a painting on the plate with its mauve chive flowers, grass green asparagus and spring onion stems. It is the perfect accompaniment to any grilled meats or fish, especially salmon, and also makes a wonderfully tactile summer “sharing platter” for an “al fresco” lunch or supper.

    Recipe #512381

    An easy to prepare and cook savoury snack with walnuts, smoked sea salt and fresh rosemary. We enjoyed these roasted walnuts with our aperitifs and I also served the rest of them with the cheese and salad course. I plan to make some more of these and use them for salads, they would be absolutely brilliant with a hot chèvre (goat’s cheese) salad, as well as making great gifts for friends and family.

    Recipe #512380

    One dull and drizzly day I devised a creamy concoction that has already become a firm favourite in this house, Raspberry Whisky Cream Pots, and which will be served throughout the year for other special occasions and family-get-togethers and not just Burns Night. It’s an easy pudding to make and yet the taste belies this fact, and I’m sure all of your guests will love this whisky laced cheesecake style trifle with jam, shortbread and fruit.

    Recipe #512359

    A light and luscious meal of Old Bay poached prawns/shrimp, just perfect for an elegant “ladies who lunch” party or a balmy summer evening on the terrace……I used king prawns for this recipe and I also used a high quality ready-made mayonnaise for the dip, for ease and speed, although I do have a great recipe for home made mayonnaise on the site here: Recipe #207690

    Recipe #512243

    This delectable low-calorie chicken dish is packed with flavour but not calories and is perfect for anyone following the 5:2 Diet as well as Weight Watchers. It's a favourite meal for me and my husband when we are on a diet, when I serve it with lots of steamed greens and a grilled tomato. For a gluten free version use crushed cornflakes in place of the breadcrumbs. NB: Please note these don't have any oil brushed on them as they are for a very low-calorie diet! If you are NOT worried about the extra calories, please brush the chicken fillets with a little oil before baking, or pan-fry them in a little oil or butter.

    Recipe #512242

    This is my elderly French neighbour's recipe for a refreshing and popular French tisane, she drinks it almost daily as a digestif, using dried lemon verbena and mint leaves in the winter. Tisanes are popular in France, and most salons de thé serve all manner of wonderful natural tisanes and teas, with exotic herbs and spices, as well as fruit and berries. Nearly all French gardens have Lemon Verbena growing, it also grows wild on the hedgerows this far South in France, and it is added to all manner of things in the kitchen - from soups to sauces, and of course it makes a refreshing and easy drink. This can be served warm or chilled with ice. Garnish with fresh lemon verbena leaves.

    Recipe #429905

    These little cookies, or biscuits, as we call them in the UK, are absolutely delicious - light and yet fresh with the flavour of the dried lemon verbena. Dried verbena is essential in this recipe, as opposed to fresh leaves, to keep the cookies light, fresh and crisp. They make great gifts - pack them in a little cellophane bag with an attractive ribbon, or in an antique tin; they are also wonderful when served with ice cream. (Recipe from a copy of Better Homes and Gardens that was sent to me by a Zaar friend, I have kept the measurements in cups, as originally posted.)

    Recipe #429903

    Too hot for a cup of hot tea? (Mind you, being British, there is never a wrong time for a cup of tea for me!) However, this wonderful ice cream has all the elements of a cup of delicate Earl Grey tea, but with the added lift of lemon verbena. Perfect for a hot day or a sophisticated and elegant dessert for any summer patio party. For a quirky twist, serve the ice cream in a tea cup and saucer, or serve it in little frosted glass bowls with fresh lemon verbena leaves. Remove the ice cream from the freezer at least 10 minutes before serving.(Recipe adapted from Helen Graves and Persia in Peckham.)

    Recipe #429901

    There are numerous recipes for lemon balm lemonade, and I have an old English recipe myself that I make regularly - but, if you find that it is sometimes a little "light" on the lemon flavour, add some lemon verbena for a super charged lemon kick! I have made this several times now and it is so refreshing and zingy, perfect for a hot summer's day. Once the syrup is made, it lasts for several weeks in the fridge, or several months in a cool dark place if you add the optional citric and tartaric acid. Serve with cold sparkling water and slices of lemon and a sprig of either lemon balm or lemon verbena.

    Recipe #429564

    When I was last back in England, I bought a bag of semi-dried mixed summer berries; strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, bilberries (wild blueberries) and cherries, all semi-dried and bursting with colour and flavour. I could not wait to cook with them, having sampled a few of them first of course! I came up with this recipe, a simple classic scone recipe, the mainstay of all English tea tables and they simply flew off the table, with requests for the recipe. The stars of the show are the semi-dried berries, and a good home-made jam and cream of course. Use any semi-dried berries you can source locally, but do try to replicate the summer berries I have listed, for that optimum flavour sensation!

    Recipe #428883

    Whitby and Scarborough on the North Yorkshire coast of England were the places of inspiration for me with this recipe, they specialise in locally caught fish, perfect for this iconic English dish. Whereas fish and chips are usually only accompanied by salt and vinegar (Malt vinegar please!) when eaten out of newspaper, when eaten in a Fish and Chip Cafe or Restaurant, you are always served this tartar sauce with your meal, tangy and wonderful with the fish especially and a squeeze of lemon. If I close my eyes I can almost imagine the sun on my face and the salty smell in the air, with seagulls wheeling around above, and the smell of that special supper or lunch to follow, after exploring the little cobbled streets. This is a bit of a cheats version as it uses ready made mayonnaise; however, if you do make your own, then please use your own home-made mayo for this recipe, as I often do. Now all you need is a sun hat, a deck chair and plenty of time to do nothing before enjoying your fish supper!

    Recipe #428549

    An easy and delightful recipe that makes an elegant starter for a festive cocktail party - served with vodka of course! If caviar is hard to source or is expensive, lumpfish roe can be used. I see this being served for a Midsummer party in honour of the lands of the midnight sun, with assorted vodka cocktails! This festive and very special appetiser was developed by one of the best-known Swedish chefs, Dr Tore Wretman, who served a version of this dish in his Stockholm restaurant in 1958, since when it has become a classic. (This recipe version by Market Kitchen and Swedish chef and cookery writer, Anna Mosesson.)

    Recipe #427773

    Parmesan crusted chicken breasts with meltingly tender aubergines in a tangy tomato sauce and a melted mozzarella topping, this tasty dish is great with ciabatta or baguette and assorted salad leaves. A wonderful version of the Italian classic where the chicken is quickly pan fried to seal in all those lovely juices before being oven baked for ease and convenience. This can be prepped earlier in the day making it a great and tasty meal for a dinner party or company; prepare to oven bake stage and then cover with cling film and store in the fridge - allow to come to room temperature before baking. (Prep time includes pan frying the chicken and aubergines.)

    Recipe #426401

    Slow cooked beef with garlic, onions and bacon in Belgian beer - served with Dijon mustard croutons.......absolute bliss! I have eaten this many times on visits to Belgium and it remains a firm favourite, especially when eaten with piles of fluffy mashed potatoes and a glass of fine Belgian beer! This recipe serves two hungry people, but it can be increased to serve a crowd, and works beautifully in the crockpot too. (The recipe is courtesy of Cecile Loubaud and the Batham's Brewery.) NB: Traditionally, the meat should be grilled on a barbecue - hence the name! The word comes from the Italian carbonate (charcoal-grilled).

    Recipe #425528

    I grew up with this, as well as the meat version which is called Panackelty, (Recipe #423393). It is a cheap and cheerful supper dish, that would satisfy the hungriest of workers and families. Layers of potatoes are fried with onions and cheese for a delectable supper dish, and one of my all time favourites. Historical note: This is a traditional Northumberland supper dish which is said to have taken its name from the French 'Hachis', meaning to chop or slice. Traditionally Pan Haggerty is always served directly from the pan in which it is cooked.

    Recipe #423399

    My grandma's recipe, an easy and tasty way mid-week meal made with corned beef, potatoes and onions - simple and packed with flavour. Panackelty is a corruption of the word Pan Haggerty; Panackelty is a baked dish consisting of meat, usually corned beef, bacon or lamb chops, and root vegetables (mainly potatoes and onions) which is left to bake throughout the day in a pot on low heat. Originating in the Sunderland area of North East England, the dish was a favourite of working-class families and was traditionally eaten on Monday as the leftover meat and vegetables from the previous day’s meal could be used. A local version of the popular dish of Shepherd's Pie or Cottage Pie. I have a vegetarian recipe for this recipe, Recipe #423399. Historical Note: The families of miners and shipyard workers would often prepare this meal as it could be slow cooked by a housewife during the day while she continued with other household tasks. A hungry worker coming home would also be especially satisfied with the high in fat and carbohydrate content of the dish. There are endless interpretations of the dish, with different families using different ingredients. Other popular panackelty concoctions will include bacon, sausages, black pudding, beef stock, and occasionally pork or lamb chops and additional vegetables such as carrots. The vegetarian version is called Pan Haggerty, and it is thought that the meat version is a corruption of that word.

    Recipe #423393

    A classic Indian recipe is absolutely delectable and is a real favourite in our house, frequently served on Curry Friday - a popular family tradition! This world famous recipe is often jokingly referred to as the national bird of Punjab, so popular is it in that region! This recipe is by Gordon Ramsey, and here is what he has to say about it: Gordon: "Butter chicken, or murgh makhani, was one of the first dishes I tasted when I went to India. Its origins can be traced back to Moghul times, but the dish and its history is most closely associated with Delhi's famous Moti Mahal restaurant, where I had the pleasure of eating this fantastic dish. Over time, numerous chefs have attempted to emulate the rich buttery sauce, and flavours vary slightly between restaurants. This is my version of the classic dish."

    Recipe #422848

    This quick dish uses ingredients that make a smart alternative to a jar of pasta sauce. A REAL steal of a recipe which is ready in 20 minutes - from pan to plate! I have suggested conchiglie, but any dried pasta shapes will work. Serve with a big bowl of salad and some cheeky little pieces of ciabatta bread or if you are feeling naughty, garlic bread! (This natty little recipe is taken from Delicious.)
