We have a friend who grows garlic, he normally gives me 4 or 5 plaits made up like you see in France. I break the bulbs up and freeze for during the year. There's about two X 2 litre containers in my freezer. My butter is
1/2 pound of butter
50 mls evoo, this keeps the butter smooth
my wife's fave entree is this, she used to order it from an up market restaurant we used to go to. The chef drowned in his swimming pool at home about 5 years ago. I made one from the net and it was ok, but does anyone have a tried and tested one for me to try? To me this wouldn't be an entree...
We've had threads about our favourite cheeses before - but this is the difficult one. You can only choose one cheese to use/eat for the rest of your life. Which one? Only one choice please and tell us why!

This is a lovely, rich tasting vegetarian dish from the book Italian Feast by Antonio Carlucci. It takes a while to prepare it but its worth it! In the introduction to the recipe Carluccio writes:
"The traditions of vegetable cookery in Italy are the result of using regional grown produce in a...
This is from my Sweet Bones recipe book. We only got the book when out came out in October last year. It sold out very quickly so we were very glad that we had pre-ordered it to collect it in store. The result is that we have a signed cookbook. One of several over the years. The advantage of...
This is comfort food, they sell like hot cakes here.
Ingredients: serves: 36
500g tasty cheese cut into small portions
3 medium brown onions, roughly chopped
1 can of unsweetened evaporated milk
1 packet French Onion Soup mix
2 loaves of white bread, crusts removed
I’d been meaning to try this technique for making pull apart bread for a while now but have been pondering what kind of filling to use. The CookingBites Recipe Challenge: Mustard offered the perfect opportunity to experiment. I used a method (but not the recipe) described here. It was far...
Welsh Rarebit is totally delicious and there are many variations of this classic ‘savoury’. But, to my mind, it has to feature strong cheddar, strong mustard and strong beer. Here, I’ve made it vegetarian by substituting soy sauce for Worcestershire sauce (which is made with anchovies). The...
Home made soft cheese is super easy to make. I think it is sometimes called Farmer's Cheese in the USA. You need just 2 ingredients (milk and vinegar) and the magic happens! Usually any flavourings are added after straining off the whey - but as I wanted the saffron to heat up to colour and...
While this recipe seems long, it is quite easy to make. That is to say, during the prep phase you will be busy, but once the burritos go in the oven you can relax.
Make your own Taco seasoning. Here is how I make my spice mix.
FOR THE GROUND BEEF:

Everyone knows about cheddar, mozzarella, provolone, etc, but what are your favorite cheeses that few people know about?
My favorite is Cotswold cheese. It's so oniony and I love the chives in it. Plus it's the most English cheddar you could ask for.
Share your favorites. I want to learn more...
2 duck breasts, skin removed and minced coarsely
1 tbsp dried breadcrumbs (I used packet Panko)
1/2 tsp salt (smoked, if you have it)
1/2 tsp Chinese five spice
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper.
50g blue cheese (I used Stilton)
Combine all of the ingredients apart from...
Until this week I hadn't thought it possible to have a dairy free cheese fondue. All my previous attempts at a vegan cheese sauce had failed to produce anything even vaguely acceptable to both my husband and I. So I was a touch uncertain about trying a totally new recipe from a totally new...
I’m such a sucker for alliteration. Here, bananas melt into a sweet harmony with salty bacon and blue cheese. This is such a very easy and fast recipe to make. It serves two for a snack or even a light lunch if you add some salad.
Ingredients (serves 2 )
Ready rolled puff pastry...
For this quiche, you don't strictly speaking, need to roast the squash beforehand. You could simple par-boil it but roasting does add more flavour.
Shortcrust pastry (I make my own but you could use ready-rolled or even a pre-cooked quiche/flan shell).
I thought I would share with you, my first cheese cake. Once again, I had a little help from my mother (I really need to grow up!). It was such a simple recipe but I was really pleased with the result and can't wait to show it to my friends at our dinner party tonight!
