Chicken and Cannellini Beans

Kerri -

While I get on with clearing the backlog, here’s a quick and easy dish you can throw together in no time. I cooked this on Monday night while waiting for something from the freezer to heat up. It went into the fridge overnight and just needed heating up the next day. You could eat it […]

Chilli Wraps with Garlicky Greens

Kerri -

Another quick and easy dinner from the freezer of chilli with more of those garlicky greens I talked about yesterday. We usually have lettuce in Mexican-style wraps but the greens worked well, not as fresh or crunchy as the lettuce obviously but an interesting change. Since these were already in the fridge and the chilli […]

Halloumi, Avocado and Lentils on Toast

Kerri -

Today‚Äôs tube strike meant that any exciting plans we had for dinner where shelved fairly quickly since both of us got home too late and too tired to do anything other than the bare minimum. The lentils, avocado and halloumi we had a couple of weeks ago was a huge success and it was the […]

Spaghetti Bolognaise

Kerri -

I had a little spare time on Saturday so decided to cook up a couple of things for the freezer. I think something may have gone wrong with my posting though because, according to the Dinner Diary archives, we haven’t eaten this since July 2009 which just can’t be right. I love spaghetti bolognaise and […]

Black Eyed Bean Curry with Red Lentil and Moong Dal and Chapatis

Kerri -

A meat-free dinner is pretty rare in our house and I would hazard a guess that it’s actually never happened before on a Saturday night. Saturday night is usually all about treating ourselves and being indulgent and, as much as I love pulses and lentils, I don’t consider them to be indulgent. The reason for […]

Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce and Scallops

Kerri -

Stephen cooked this last night and I’m sure he won’t mind me saying that it didn’t turn out quite as planned. He had intended to use prawns but couldn’t find any and used scallops instead. The delicate flavour of the scallops didn’t really stand up to the tomato sauce and they became a bit lost, […]

Smoked Mackerel with Butter Beans and Kale

Kerri -

I cooked these beans on Sunday with the intention of adding some white fish today. At the last minute, Stephen suggested we have mackerel instead and that worked out much better than I imagine the white fish would have. The mustard in the beans cut through the oiliness of the mackerel very well and the […]

Jamie’s Sausage Pasta

Kerri -

This recipe comes from Jamie’s new 30 Minute Meals book which we were sent recently. It’s always the pasta recipes that catch my eye when paging through Jamie’s books and, having highlighted this one and with no plans for dinner, it seemed like a good option for a rainy Tuesday night. I actually saw him […]

Pizza Party

Kerri -

Last Saturday, Stephen’s sister, her husband and their little girl came over for lunch. We thought Stephen’s niece might enjoy making pizza so we made up a huge batch of dough and some tomato sauce and laid out lots of toppings for everyone to choose from. I’d intended to experiment with a blue cheese and […]

Cavolo Nero Pasta

Kerri -

Another week without any posts. This is becoming embarassing. And, as is usual when this happens, there isn’t anything particularly worth waiting for. This had potential but I can’t quite remember what that potential was since it was so long ago that we ate it. There was chilli, garlic and anchovies in here, along with […]
