Cannelloni al forno

Mmmm … pasta, I love it. Simple, versatile and it fills you up. Functional and economical, yes, but that doesn’t mean you sacrifice flavour. Pasta served with butter is just as satisfying. Today I am making one of my favourite baked pasta dishes which is also vegetarian friendly – stuffed cannelloni with a ricotta and spinach filling. I have made this many times in the past and it never disappoints … so I am putting this up on the blog in the hope that you try it as well.

Beef Stroganoff

Winter has come and gone. We now wait in anticipation for spring to show its lovely face, bringing with it rays of much needed sunshine and crisp morning air. The chills still linger on however, so one must still nourish the soul with creamy comforts whenever one is able to indulge. This is my first time making Beef Stroganoff and it came out amazing. Super easy, super tasty.

Creamy Spinach and Shrimp Fettuccine

I always preferred pasta in cream sauces to those made with red sauce. Lots of garlic and a splash of cream makes for a lovely bowl of comfort on a cold winters day … just don’t forget the grated cheese and smokey bacon bits as well. Mmm, so good! This dish is pretty simple to make and will be done in about 30-mins from start to finish.

Yupp, I did it … I have made a warming chicken, mushroom and leek casserole in the dead of summer, and I have no regrets. Welcome to Ireland, where we seem to have waltzed from spring directly into autumn this year.

Croquette of Cod & Smoked Trout

Here is a great way to get your kids eating fish, and also a way to clean out your fridge of any leftover mashed potato in one fell swoop. These babies have all the characteristics of a fun snack to have at garden parties or simply just to eat whenever. Crispy and crunchie on the outside, yet moist and creamy on the inside… delicious!

Lamb Kofta Curry

Welcome one and all to my very first food post from Ireland. Feeling very happy and in spite of the obvious startup hiccups here and there, we are settling in very nicely. Ireland is well known for their lamb so here I present a dish using 100% Irish lamb mince, using it to make this intensely flavourful Indian curry.

Swedish Meatballs in Cream Sauce

Everybody loves those Swedish meatballs they serve up in IKEA stores … c’mon, admit it! Yummy meatballs smothered in their signature brown gravy … mmm! But what to do if you don’t live near an IKEA or cannot be bothered queuing up for a plate of these delectable treats? Well, make them yourself of course. I did, and they came out really well.

Mughlai Chicken & Jeera Rice

Chicken Mughlai is yet another famous dish bourne out of the royal kitchens of the great emperors of northern India. It is a beautiful dish of tender chicken cooked in a rich, creamy nut gravy. With it I am serving jeera rice … a wonderfully fragrant rice dish made by adding toasted cumin seeds, onions and coriander.

Kheema Mater {Minced Mutton & Peas in rich gravy}

Kheema Mater is a rich minced mutton dish cooked with peas in a wonderfully savoury gravy and it comes straight out of the royal kitchens of the great Mughal dynasty. While a large portion of India observes a purely vegetarian diet, those living in the north in particular relish rich meaty dishes cooked to perfection in creamy sauces. Many of these dishes were influenced by the Muslim rulers of the time, and obviously if it’s feeding the king, then it’s got to be good-eats.

Oozy Ham & Cheese Crepes

Did not get to the shops today. Actually, I simply did not want to leave the house for various reasons (pure laziness) so this meant by the time dinner came round I had nothing to cook. I could have had oatmeal or an omelette but I really wanted something ‘off-menu’. Therefore, this happened …>> Oozy Ham & Cheese Crepes.
