A look back in time: thebigfatnoodle spring clean

Nothing beats a good spring cleaning It was long overdue but it really needed to be done, and what better way to make sure I stayed off my broken foot then to finally finish the blog clean up I started a few weeks ago. It’s taken me almost a month to do so, not just … Continue reading

Red spaghetti… and a grumpy old woman’s take on the rest of my Chelsea Flower Show 2012 piccies

Part food post, part flower show As I’d already posted some of the food-oriented images from our trip to the Chelsea Flower Show, I originally set out to focus this post on a staple recipe that has sustained both my husband and I during these last few turbulent weeks. The idea was that I would … 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

Savoury Jellies: Crab salad served in a pea shoot and tomato jelly

Jelly making with a savoury twist Some of you may remember that last year, my husband and I visited London’s famous ‘Gherkin’ building to have dinner at Searcy’s restaurant on the top floor. The most memorial part of that night out, apart from the architecture, turned out to be the amuse bouche that we were … 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

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

Can you stay for dinner?’s cinna minis (mini cinnamon rolls)

Finding (food) love online – Can you stay for dinner? Guuuuuurrrrrgggghhhhhh….! If you don’t know what that sound is meant to be, it’s actually Homer Simpson drooling whenever he thinks about food. I have had exactly the same ‘guuurrggghh’ moment this weekend – I have found a new blog that I have fallen in love … 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

Crispy and chewy cranberry oat biscuits in less than 30mins

If you’re an impatient baker like me, you’ll love that these biscuits take less than 30 minutes to make and bake Yay, it’s the weekend and that can mean only one thing – a chance for me to tinker in the kitchen! Which is exactly what I did the moment I woke up this morning. … Continue reading
