Hello Again

It has been a long time since I posted on this blog and hopefully new recipes will be appearing soon. But this quick little post is to tell you I’ve started a new blog for my undergraduate History degree. Here’s the link if you are interested: A Young Academic’s Blog. You’ll have to visit it to see what it’s about. Enjoy!

Cold Meatloaf with Squashed Tomato & Pepper Salsa and Rocket in Ciabatta Rolls


On Mondays I make lunch for me and my mum to have on Tuesday. Last Monday I made meatloaf and a tomato and pepper salsa from a recipe from BBC Good Food. The recipe can be found here: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/691652/cold-meatloaf-with-squashed-tomato-and-pepper-sals. I halved the recipe and used ciabatta rolls and rocket to make up sandwiches which I kept in the fridge overnight till the next day. The salsa tastes absolutely amazing as does the meatloaf. The salsa would be great with other foods too and you can adjust the amount of chilli flakes to your liking. I spread the salsa on two cut ciabatta rolls and then layered the rocket and meatloaf slices to make a sandwich before wrapping them up to eat the next day. Enjoy!



Soy and Honey Chicken with Coconut Brown Rice


Last Tuesday, I made a wonderful meal. It was easy to make and the steps were straightforward. It tasted really good too. This recipe comes from Monica Galetti and she cooked it on Food & Drink a few weeks ago. The recipe can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/soy_and_honey_chicken_37066. I used desiccated coconut instead of coconut oil which I mixed into the rice before serving. Enjoy!

Mozzarella & Winter Fruit Salad

On Saturday, I made a really good salad using blood oranges and mozzarella. The recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s website and can be found here: http://www.jamieoliver.com/magazine/recipes-view.php?title=mozzarella-aamp-winter-fruit-salad. Enjoy!


Braised Chicken with Kale

Yesterday, for dinner I made a wonderful meal of baked chicken legs braised with kale. The recipe is from Cooking Light and can be found here: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/braised-chicken-kale. I served the dish with roast potatoes but I think it would be great served with rice. I also added a bay leaf to the pot before baking the dish. I will definitely be making this meal again. It was very easy to make and tasted amazing. Enjoy!
