ConsNo Vegetarian Option

Welcome to my 50th review. Having had this discussion with a few of the Ciao members I am lucky to call online friends, I have decided to make good the claim that I can actually cook *grin* So, the review below is what I would have on my reasonably priced lunchtime menu, should I choose to run a...

ConsTemptation to eat too many!

PANCAKE DAY - 24th February 2009 Pancake Day approaches and it is usually a day for which I am totally unprepared because it's a moveable feast. This year I am shopping early! Most will know this is the secular title for Christianity's Shrove Tuesday, the eve of the beginning of Lent, the forty...

Since becoming a vegetarian, my repertoire of fresh meals that work well with veggies alone or quorn pieces and mince has been sadly halved and due to intense boredom (and the current scare over ready meals and processed food) I have been scouring recipe sites looking for new things to try. I...

I received this recipe from a work colleague, who currently has two Bulgarian students staying with her, they are both guys and love to cook and in return for free board often surprise her and her husband with various dishes from their homeland.

ProYummy, flavours,

ConsFattening

My ops are usually on food products, however, I realise there are some people out there who much prefer to prepare and cook there own foods and meals from scratch rather than buying a ready meal or a quick bag of chips to heat up in the oven. I dont know how many people actually read the recipes...

Prowarming, filling, delicious

Consmust be eaten by the next day

I am a food lover and in many extents am a traditional dish person rather than a chips and scampi person. Many times I have sat in a pub to eat food and ordered something that is years old by method. As a little girl I've grown up eating foods that generations have passed on the know-how and...

ProTaste of east and tasty as well

ConsRich in calorie, Spicy

Here I am again with another recipe, this is one of my favourite. Well I guess some of you must be familiar with this Dish called 'Biryani'. It is quite common here in Manchester especially on the Curry mile. When I first came here I decided to taste it as this dish is quite common in my home and...

ProTasty, filling, aromatic and "homely"

ConsNot for vegetarians I'm afraid

Twenty years of southern living can’t quite banish the original Yorkshire tyke in me, and on these cold winter evenings "there’s nowt better than a right good stew for us tea". A couple of my new Ciao mates asked for this recipe after I mentioned the stew in my AAM op. I was about to...

ProFairly quick and easy to make.

ConsLots of pans to wash up after.

My husband hates fish, but knows he needs to eat more of it, and cut down on red meat. In an attempt to get him to eat more, I am trying to dress it up in as many healthy ways as possible, especially on a low carb diet (no potatoes, pasta or any fun stuff like that). I am rather bored of fish...

“Champion cheesy cottage pie”

published 03/03/2008

ProTasty, you can control what is going in it

ConsTime taken and mess it makes!

Cottage Pie After much deliberation, I've decided to share my cottage pie recipe. My husband loves this dish (they do say the way to a mans heart is through his stomach!) and it is what I usually cook when we have friends over. I will confess to being a lazy cook and I hate peeling and mashing...

ConsBuying your oven was a waste of money.

The nights are getting darker and there's a definite chill in the air. Salads don't seem half so appealing and there are times when what I really want is a good, old-fashioned casserole. I've got a couple that are posh enough to serve if you've got guests and there's one of them that will delight...

... and Deano after his latest opinion!! I thought I would lend the lads a hand and teach them how to cook, seeing as most of them need to make up for some reason or another (i.e. Lush opinions) and the way to a girl's heart is through her tummy. Actually it's not, it's through the high street to...
