    DS has suffered from eczema since he was a small baby, & when his eczema flares up we find that omitting dairy from his diet is very helpful. He loves the taste of coffee, but being just 7 years old we only let him have de-caffeinated of course! I sometimes swap the tofu for a banana :)

    Recipe #374813

    This is a fantastic beef curry recipe from the book 'Cooking the Thai Way' by Supenn Harrison & Judy Monroe.

    Recipe #374801

    Although this recipe is called pasta, it actually contains no pasta! Alton suggests serving this as a first course but we enjoy it as a light lunch with fresh crusty bread......

    Recipe #374796

    I absolutely adore poached eggs on toast so for me Eggs Benedict is really something to enjoy. If you have a toaster that will accommodate split muffins, feel free to toast them in that instead of under the grill. As I don't eat ham / prosciutto, I make my Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon which also adds a lovely elegant touch in my opinion. Save this recipe for special days such as birthdays & anniversaries, better still drop hints for someone else to make it for you :wink:

    Recipe #374766

    This lovely recipe comes from a book called Vegan Planet. The book says " A stacked salad makes a striking forst course. Instead of eggplant slices, you can substitute slices of grilled portobello mushroom caps, if you prefer ". I love serving these towers as a first course when we entertain. I like to lightly grill the tomatoes with a little salt before placing them on the eggplant.

    Recipe #374756

    A simple dressing created by Jacques Peppin, use it over a crunchy green salad or be a little more creative - I love it over grilled chicken breasts....yum!

    Recipe #374736

    This slightly unusual recipe is actually from Marie Claire Cooking. I love the flavour combinations of this dish and sometimes add a teaspoon of tahini to the hummus. The original recipe calls for a loaf of wood-fired bread which I can't get so I use regular Ciabatta instead! I know that the term 'hummus' is used very lightly here & I have to admit that sometimes I use a classic hummus recipe but blend in the Jerusalem Artichoke before serving.

    Recipe #374670

    I am not entirely sure why this would be called a "Designer" sauce but it is very good. This lemon sauce comes from chef (& cookbook author) Hugh Carpenter. If you want a slightly thick sauce, mix a tiny about of cornflour with water or broth & mix into the sauce then heat until thickened.

    Recipe #374581

    This amazing soup is from the book : New Recipes From Moosewood Restaurant. We like to have this for a change during Ramadan.

    Recipe #374569

    Jugo is a wonderful fruity drink, traditionally drunk in South America, especially at breakfast time.

    Recipe #374512

    This salad is really delicious & comes from the book: Little Foods of the Mediterranean By Clifford A. Wright. The recipe doesn't state this, but I prefer to let the salad sit for 30 mins so the garlic flavour mellows a little.....

    Recipe #374507

    I love the flavour combination of orange with chocolate - it is such a classic combination - & that is why I came up with this recipe. There is nothing difficult about making this dessert, you just need a bit of time & patience…Time to make doesn't include chilling or setting times.

    Recipe #373806

    This is my family's all time favourite curry. Originally this was an Afghani chicken curry - I ended up reducing the amount of chicken & adding chickpeas, potatoes & peas to. If you want to add more veggies, please feel free to do so. Frozen okra also works well in this dish, as does fresh spinach added at the very last minute. My kids, aged 7 & 2, enjoy eating this curry as it is not too spicy, just full of flavour. If you want a hotter curry, add a chilli to the cooking pot! This curry tastes just like the Chicken Bhuna (with added veg!) from our local Indian restaurant.....we now save ourselves a fortune ;)

    Recipe #373553

    There are many, many versions of Basboussa ( and many spelling variations!) throughout the Arab world. Some of these are a spongy cake-like texture & some are more of a grainy texture. This Algerian version is more of a cake-like texture - which happens to be my favourite. I absolutely love the addition of coconut in the recipe, it really adds something to the Basboussa. This recipe is extremely simple to make & is delicious served with coffee or tea. It is definitely a Ramadan staple in our home!

    Recipe #373540

    Baghrir or Beghrir are extremely popular in North Africa. They are small spongy pancakes made with semolina & when cooked correctly, are riddled with tiny little holes. The most common way to east these in Algeria is by dipping baghrir in a honey butter mixture & eating warm as is. They are aslo cut into wedges & easten. It is quite common for the ocassional addition of raisins too. Baghrir are delicious eaten for breakfast or with coffee in the afternoon! These are perfect for Suhor during Ramadan, just make a batch up the night before & warm through, adding the honey butter just before serving.

    Recipe #373303

    M'shewsha is a delicious Algerian dish made with lots of eggs, a little semolina & a little flour. Most traditional recipes call for quite a lot of oil, my other recipe has reduced oil in it but I wanted to find a healthier version - here it is! You pour warm honey over it & allow it to soak in........delicious! M'shewsha can be enjoyed for breakfast or with afternoon coffee - it tastes like a cross between cake, a fluffy pancake & French toast! Traditional, it is thought to give you a lot of strength - manual labourers eat it often, as do women who've just had a baby! This is also great for Suhor during Ramadan - yum!

    Recipe #373298

    Tamina is a very old Algerian recipe. Traditionally it is served to celebrate the birth of a baby, however many people eat it whenever they get the craving for something seriously sweet! It is most commonly served in small plates & people each have a small spoon with which to eat it, you can of course, serve individual portions. Algerian children go crazy for this so don't forget a plate for them!

    Recipe #373143

    The best way to describe these beans is a spicier version of English baked beans! Haricot beans are cooked in a tomato sauce flavoured with lots of garlic, cumin & paprika. This recipe is for the way I cook it most - the slow cook way - but you can make it easily in a pressure cooker; just reduce the water to a total of 2 litres, add a chicken stock cube & take care with the seasoning. It should only take 45-50 mins in the pressure cooker. If you have any Algerian hot green peppers, this is really nice with 1-2 thrown in half way through! N.B: Time to make doesn't include overnight soaking of the beans.

    Recipe #372923

    I came up with this recipe to help use up all the strawberry ice cream I've ended up with. I like to serve these sundaes in tumblers / mixer glasses but you could use any glass you prefer. If you do not have fresh strawberries, frozen strawberries which have been drained are fine (spoon a little juice over the sponge if you like!). This is a very quick dessert to put together & is beautiful to look at.

    Recipe #370451

    This ice cream is a real treat for all the senses. I wanted to make a special treat for dessert but didn’t have a great deal of time so ended up creating this little beauty! Using store bought strawberry ice cream cuts your work & time in the kitchen in half & the strawberry really brings out the delicate rose flavours. If you're serving the ice cream straight away, you can add the meringue nuggets but if it's to stay in the freezer for a while, you may want to leave them out & make meringue nests to serve the ice cream in instead. Prep time includes freezing time. Please note that the recipes does state 10 tablespoons of rose water - this is because the rose water I used here is a very weak one from East End Foods. If you have a nice strong rose water, from an Arab manufacturer, please only use 4-5 tablespoons...or to taste.
