Recipes I've Shared:

Crunchy Granola

Nutritious for breakfast


Incredible! (1 rating)
Chili Beef for the Crockpot

Just throw the ingredients in the slow cooker first thing, and leave it to cook all day...

Nutty pear breakfast

Nuts, seeds and fruit processed together for breakfast - eat with yogurt

Fruit gingerbread

Traditional British gingerbread - the one like a cake, not the hard one used to make houses or men. Lots of trace elements! Cuts into 48 small pieces.

Spicy chicken soup in the crockpot

Chicken soup using leftover chicken (or turkey), with a bit of curry powder and ginger to spice it up. Good for winter coughs and colds.

Tuna/cheese buns

for a quick and protein-rich lunch

Mince pies

festive treats using home-made pastry and home-made mincemeat

Mincemeat

Traditional at Christmas to go in little pies, and other goodies

Lentil and carrot soup

Warming and filling, easy to make in a crockpot.

Pepper and tomato soup

Warming and delicious for winter. Based on the recipe in Jan Karon's books.

Quick chicken curry (using Knorr sauce)

When time is short, a jar of 'Chicken tonight' curry sauce makes a good curry. Serve with naan or pitta bread, mango chutney, raisins, and perhaps a salad.

lemon and mushroom stuffing for chicken

Different from traditional sage and onion, very refreshing

Garlic chili fish with roasted vegetables

A great way to serve cod or other white fish, popular even with those who generally don't like fish

Cauliflower cheese with onions

Basic veggie dish, serves 2-3 as a main dish, 4-5 as a side dish. Can use low-fat cheese for lower fat, but we like Gouda!

Lemon chicken and veggies for the crockpot

Ideal for serving lots of people. Easy to prepare, cooks all day in the slower cooker

Baked cheesecake

Serves 8-10 depending on appetite. Can use regular fat yogurt and cream cheese, or omit the cottage cheese and use all cream cheese, but watch the fat and calorie levels soar if you do!

Malteser cake

Inspired by, and based on the recipe at http://www.chocolate-source.co.uk/chocolat
e_recipes_cakes_malteser_cake.htm and other similar sites. This one makes a rather bigger version using the same size packet of Maltesers.

Carrot and Ginger Soup

This has quite a bite - use less ginger or omit altogether if you prefer a blander soup.

Chili non carne

Vegetarian equivalent of chili con carne, with lots of colourful veggies. Can use canned or cooked dried beans, and adapt to suit family tastes.

Mildly spicy chicken for the crockpot

An Indian tang to this adaptation of a crockpot chicken recipe. Serves about 8 people; good with rice, or potato wedges, or naan bread, and a salad or some veggies, and a few raisins.

Double chocolate chip muffins

These are the size of fairy-cakes rather than US style muffins, and are light and fluffy. Can use part wholewheat flour instead of white to increase nutrition, and regular milk rather than soya, if preferred.

Stifado

Greek-style beef casserole. Can be made on the stove, or in a crockpot

Wholewheat bread for the breadmaker

My basic recipe - can add herbs, or other seeds, or crushed nuts as desired.

Light vanilla ice cream

Made with light evaporated milk, in an ice cream churn. Serves 8-12 depending on appetite

Teryaki chicken

Very simple recipe for pseudo-Japanese style chicken

Crockpot barbecue flavour chicken

to feed twelve - easily divided into two or three for smaller numbers of servings

Citrus chicken

Quick to cook on the stove top, low in fat; serves 4 (or three hungry people!)

chicken curry for the crockpot

based on this page: http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1939,15918
0-229204,00.html

adjusted for larger size crockpot. Spices not taken into account when calculating calories, fat etc since negligible. Gives an authentic and hot curry.
