Mexican chicken nachos

I have a confession. I’m not great at cutlery. I hold my fork in my right hand. I hold my knife in my left hand. When I have to cut things, I kind of just saw at them a bit and then try to drag them apart. It’s not classy. But this doesn’t need cutlery! No! You can just pick up the nachos, scoop up some chicken and cheese, straight in your mouth. Yes. You might need a fork for stray bits of chicken, but I can totally do fork only meals. (more…)

Gnocchi with bacon and egg

I subscribe to two cooking magazines, Good Food and Olive, and every month I fold down the pages of recipes I like the look of and then happily put the magazines on my bookshelf and forget all about them. When I look through them again, there are always recipes I’ve marked which are a bit different to my normal tastes, and I’m fairly certain I will never make them. This is one of those recipes, and this week I decided I was just going to go for it. If I didn’t like it, I could just not make it again. But I did like it. A lot. (more…)

Philly cheese steak pasta

Philly cheese steak might be the best sammich ever invented, and pasta might be my favourite food ever, so it seemed only natural to combine the two. This is gooey, cheesy and unashamedly tacky. Make it and put it in your face. (more…)

As I love to add courgette to EVERYTHING, I was excited when I saw a recipe for Courgette carbonara a couple of years ago in Jamie at Home by Jamie Oliver. I copied out the recipe and I’ve made it often ever since.  Except that I haven’t, really. I’ve changed it every time until it’s morphed into something which doesn’t really resemble Jamie Oliver’s recipe at all, other than the fact that it has courgette in it. So I’m claiming it as my own. Is that too cheeky? (more…)

Meatball subs

When I was at uni, Chris and I would go to Subway for lunch pretty much every week with our two most favouritest housemates (Hi Dave and Simmo!). I would always, always, always get a footlong meatball marinara and invariably end up with a tummy ache. But I didn’t care. I loved them. Meatballs, cheese and bread. What’s not to love? (more…)

If there’s one thing better than garlic bread, it’s garlic bread with cheese. (more…)

A few days ago I saw this recipe and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. I’ll admit, I’ve never actually heard of chicken spaghetti and I have no idea what Velveeta is, but cheese, chicken and mushrooms sounds good to me. (more…)

The steak sandwich recipe wasn’t meant to be a sandwich. I was flicking through Mexican Food Made Simple and I came across a recipe called “Rib-eye steak with chilli mushrooms”. On the facing page is a picture of the yummiest looking sammich you have ever seen. So I started reading through the recipe and I realised the picture and the recipe didn’t match. At all. But the idea had been planted in my brain, so steak and chilli mushroom sandwich was what we made 🙂 (more…)

I’ve made steak burritos, mushroom and chorizo quesadillas, barbecued steak and chilli mushroom sandwich, barbecued chicken adobado and a yummy caramel and pineapple cheesecake to finish. So, here is the first of many Mexican recipes to be posted over the next few days. (more…)
