Salt dough thank you tokens

A post by 2 Girls with a Food Blog at 2 Girls with a Food Blog

School is out and summer is in and what better way to say thank you to Teacher, than with a handmade thank you token. We were hard at work in the kitchen today making ours. They are very simple to do and we did not have to go to the shop. We had everything in the cupboard….. even better.
This is how the final pieces looked – MM (3) was very  happy with the outcome and can’t wait to deliver them on the last day of school.  Continue reading »

The weather is sunny and it’s time to have dinner. The last thing we want to do is cook. So here’s some ideas for no-cook dinners in the Summer where the toughest bit of heat you’ll have to handle in the kitchen will be the kettle.
Couscous Bean Salad
Couscous is a fantastic carbohydrate that cooks in just 5 short minutes once you cover it with hot water. Use about 50g per portion and use 75ml of hot water per person.  Continue reading »

These glossy, sticky, chocolate coated hazelnut financiers are the perfect afternoon indulgence. I know it may seem like I have a chocolate hazelnut obsession, ( Chocolate Hazelnut Torte, Chocolate Hazelnut Shortbreads, Chocolate Hazelnut Tart) but it’s just such a great flavor combination – I personally blame Nutella for fostering this flavor addiction during my formative years.  Continue reading »

On my first visit to Bangkok, it was a hot and sticky night when we arrived and this was the dish we tucked into after wandering the streets. The rather interesting addition, to what would otherwise be an ordinary beef dish, is the toasted ground rice, which adds both texture and a surprisingly smoky, nutty flavour. The original dish doesn’t feature the extra leaves, but I think it makes a wonderful healthy salad.  Continue reading »

Sassanachs!

A post by The Beer Nut at The Beer Nut

I have no idea what’s in these glasses

Even though it has an on-site brewery and is a staunch supporter of local beer, the Hanging Bat beer café in Edinburgh can generally be relied on for a selection of English beers, especially from the more interesting and progressive breweries south of the border. And the readily available third-pint measures means ticking one’s way through them is disturbingly easy. So…

Take 1 Chicken, Meal 3 of 3

A post by Wholesome Ireland at Wholesome Ireland

So this week I’ve made:
Meal 1: Roast Chicken (also the shopping list is in this post)
Meal 2: Chicken Broth
Now it’s time for Meal 3. Again it’s a simple, filling and uncomplicated meal on a budget. I raided my fresh sage in the front garden to pop on top of this roasted squash with chicken and spaghetti meal. It really added to the flavour.
This is a big comforting bowl of food. Just the kind of thing on a day like today.  Continue reading »

Blog Guilt

A post by icanhascook at I Can Has Cook?

Like almost everybody I know, things have been action packed in my world this year. I’ve been having a wonderful time with forkful, making videos and writing columns and plotting next steps. I’ve been writing for different newspapers and magazines and talking about food on the radio.  Continue reading »

Recently, this blog has been accused of not being ridiculous enough. Let’s rectify this, shall we?
If you don’t already have spices knocking around your kitchen, acquiring the ingredients for this dish could end up being quite pricey. I’ve used individual spices, because that’s what I have. But if you don’t have any of them, and don’t think you’ll use them after this dish, a spice blend.  Continue reading »

Thai Garden
Spanish Arch, Galway
(091) 567 865
Earlier this year – the folks from Thai Garden participated in the Galway Food Fest.
Watch their little video here. It is just gorgeous.
 

If Trip Advisor is anything to go by, and let’s face it, they do have some serious clout when researching restaurants and hotels online, then there is no reason not to put Thai Garden on your list of places to eat next time you are feeling peckish in Galway.  Continue reading »

Ferry Nice Magneau Double

Graves vineyards, near Podensac

Came home from the recent holiday in Bordeaux with a stash of wine. Nothing unusual about that! The advice that came it was to leave it rest for about three weeks after its travels. Could have done with three weeks rest myself!

Three weeks without touching the St Emilion and Sauternes could be fairly frustrating, I thought.  Continue reading »

Blushing Beetroot Burgers

A post by donalskehan at DonalSkehan.com

Beetroot are easy enough to grow, and there is a huge selection of varieties to choose from like pale pinks, candy-striped and even golden yellow ones. These vegetarian burgers are a great way of showing them off. I have served them here in baps but they are just as delicious served on their own with a healthy bulghur-wheat salad.  Continue reading »
