Lamb and avocado wraps

Certainly healthier than a kebab 🙂 With my husband away, I have free rein to eat all the things that he normally doesn’t like or tend to eat. I’d bought myself a lamb steak but with it being so warm and sunny last weekend, I really didn’t fancy a piping hot meal. I wanted finger … Continue reading

Pan-seared salmon in a ginger and garlic infused oil

In a pink frame of mind As you may know, I’m fending for myself at the moment. I spent Sunday making some spaggie boll sauce (as you do), most of which I will freeze but some which I’ll keep to re-heat quickly during this week. However, just because I had to cook for myself this … Continue reading

Flour-less chocolate cake

Sadly carb free doesn’t mean fat-free When we invited our friends over for Sunday lunch last weekend  and I decided to make a flour-less chocolate cake, I thought I’d be doing a ‘good’ thing ie producing a carb-free cake as my friends were all trying to cut down on the amount of carbs they ate. … Continue reading

Butter-free banana, apple and walnut bread (no ‘fun’ doesn’t mean no taste…)

A healthier way is possible Banana bread has to be the most versatile and universally well-loved recipe ever. Every week, I’ll come across someone posting their take on a banana bread recipe. When I got back from Spain recently, my husband asked me if I could make another banana bread because we had 4 sad … Continue reading

A Spanish-influenced Three Pork Casserole with Chorizo and Puy Lentils

Cooking with chorizo I’m still in a Spanish frame of mind after my recent trips to Spain. I was there two weeks ago but what some of you might not know is that I actually had to go back again last week for a couple of days. This last trip was for a different work … Continue reading

Bulgar wheat salad with roasted veg in paprika

I actually made this salad some three weeks ago before my business trip but I simply forgot to post it so here it is… A bit of this and a bit of that. I couldn’t really decide what to call this recipe. It’s again a union of two different salads that I love and, typically, … Continue reading

A taste of Spain: Croquetas de Jamón / Serrano ham croquettes (reposting as I’m entering this to the easyJet competition)

Please send me on holiday to Barcelona! A taste of Spain: Croquetas de Jamón / Serrano ham croquettes These little babies were my lifesaver when I was in Barcelona last week… My colleagues and I were so busy that we barely found time to eat so it wasn’t until about 10pm on Day 2 of the … Continue reading

A Conundrum

So bigfatnoodle is away at the moment, and I have promised to post a story in her absence,  so here goes. I have a big problem with Anchovies. I can’t stand them in any shape of form, especially draped onto pizza or in pasta. Fresh, bleeurgh. In oil, double bleeurgh. SO why, then is it … Continue reading

What’s better than a baked butternut squash? One that’s smothered in raclette cheese…

Hola y adiós! I’m flying off to Barcelona today for a few days for work. In all honesty, I’ve been a bundle of nerves these last few weeks getting ready for this conference, and while it’s like my umpteenth time working there, the stress never gets easier. If anything, it gets worse! I’ve barely seen … Continue reading

Vegetarian delights: A savoury fried (white) carrot cake from South-east Asia (chai tow kway)

South-east Asian street food at its best 🙂 One of my earliest posts for thebigfatnoodle was about how I taught myself to make a local dish from South-east Asia called fried carrot cake. Traditionally, it uses mooli (also called daikon) – a white radish – but I can’t always get hold of this unless I … Continue reading
