Gyoza virgin no longer

Jamie's comfort food, Pork

I love weekends which give you the time to experiment in the kitchen and that’s exactly how I used my time this weekend.

Yesterday I decided to try making Gyoza for the first time. I wasn’t alone, alas Mr Oliver helped me through the media of his comfort foods book.

  
I found it a really straight forward recipe to follow but you defiantly need a good hour or two for the prep.

I enjoyed making the Gyoza dough but found it a real workout session trying to get it nice and thin.

  
But it was all totally worth it!

   
   
The Gyoza were perfectly formed and perfect in taste. They were nice and light (which meant I ate about 15!) and they were fantastic in the dipping sauces (although they were equally tasty without!). The ginger and spice really fired through, a taste sensation!

Stir fry steak (noodles again)

Beef, Easy Everyday Fast recipe book

This dish seriously fills me with excitements and has my mouth watering far too much.

Avid followers of this blog will know I’m a recent convert to the almighty noodle but this dish reached heights which are near to ecstasy…..no fibs.

I’m can quite literally taste and feel the moist, buttery, chunky steak pieces filling my mouths with sweet juices (*Homer Simpson food appreciation noise)

As always it was a super easy, super fast recipie with stupefying results. Best of all…..healthy.

   
 

Smoked haddock and Parma ham risotto

Cook book, Easy Everyday Fast recipe book, Fish, Food

A perfect Sunday afternoon dinner.

Picture this. It’s brisk and bright outside and after sprightly, nippy dog walk, we come home to a toasty house. We crack open a bottle of Chardonnay (of course) and I whip up this scrumptious dish.

This is a great recipe for s number of reasons, it’s pretty fast for a risotto, it’s creamy and it has huge depths of flavor from the fish and ham. I highly recommend this dish, it’s wonderfully satisfying and rather filling.

  
    
 

Something I MUST share with you!!!

Breakfast, Food, Foodie

I always have a small stash of quick bites in my drawer at work, it’s really incase I miss breakfast or become super starved.

I’ve worked my way through all kinds of cereal bars and healthy biscuits etc but I have just found the holy grail!!!!

With only 98 calories for two bars and less than 0.8g of saturated fat I can hardly believe they taste so darn good!

The raspberry one are sweet and creamy but the caramel ones, oh the caramel ones, they taste like your eating a sinful treacle tart…amazing!!!!

Try them! Its a must!
