This is a family recipe I learnt from my Dad. In this recipe we do something a bit different (and lazy) with our potatoes: They are sliced instead of mashed. If you don’t believe it’s better then give it a try yourself and tell me your verdict.
Easy to make, but expensive to buy, salmon and pasta is a great treat after a long day. I had never cooked salmon before so I opted for pre-cooked smoked salmon from Tesco. This dish can be made in less than 10 minutes! Here is what you need:
Pasta (I used spaghetti)
Step 1: Add pasta to a pan of boiling water with some oil and salt. Stirring occasionally. Should take between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the pasta you use.
Step 2: Grate the cheese and chop up the salmon. Add the cheese and double cream to a pan at a low heat.
Step 3: Stir the cream and cheese until they have formed a smooth sauce, then add the salmon and some pepper.
Step 4: When everything is ready drain the pasta and put it all into a dish. Then dig in!
Quick and easy to make in under 10 minutes. Great when you’re in a rush, but still want a delicious meal.
Chocolate Mud Cake: This is a cake that I am famous for baking at home, however I am also famous for cocking it up. So when I decided to bake it for my university house mates as part of our fake Christmas Day I was a bit scared to say the least. Normally I use too much self-raising flour and the mixture ends up baking beautifully… all over the oven… and not necessarily inside the cake tin.
So for the sake of this recipe I halved the ingredients and didn’t use any bicarbonate of soda went to Asda to gather the ingredients my house mates and I did not already own. The recipe makes about 12 brownies – or one if you choose to eat it in one sitting.
Since discovering the price of mince I have not had spag bol at University and settled for quorn. However I feel like I lost the point a bit by using a meat substitute by adding my favorite ingredient… BACON!
This time i forked out £3 and bought some mince. I also divided the mince into two so I could make two lots of bolognese. So this is my make shift – no instructions- spag bol from sctrach.
I actually forgot to take any of my own photos for this dish, I guess I was just too excited. Tuna pasta bake is the first thing my mother taught me to make successfully and when im cooking it my university house mates get jealous of the delicious smell.But this is NOT a hard recipe, and this is NOT and expensive recipe. It isn’t even overly messy or time consuming. It is PERFECT.
(use however much of each as you wish)
-Pasta: half a pack is usually enough for too servings.
-Tuna: half a can per person
I was unimpressed by Jamie Oliver’s carbonara, as I am with many other peoples versions. So here is my version. It is quick to make and so simple. In fact it really only has five ingredients.
I kicked off my cookbook with a yummy sweet recipe, so I decided to try savory this time. I like pasta, and I am very proud of my own (and incredibly simple) version of a carbonara. However, since I need to start trying new things I downloaded a Jamie Oliver app and found this recipe.
