Smoked Haddock and Garlic Prawn Kedgeree

Smoked Haddock and Prawn Kedgeree

Torrential downpours have been pretty much the order of the day here. It's rained solidly for 11 hours and heavy enough to interrupt the satellite signal. This meant I had to deal with three over-tired children (we were at a music festival until very late last night) with no Peppa Pig to help me out. On a positive note I did receive a couple of nice parcels in the post today, one of them being a great little gadget from Joseph Joseph to try out - the M Cuisine Egg Poacher.

I love eggs, but poached eggs are my downfall. They NEVER go right. I've tried all the tricks. I've even asked my Mother to watch me make them to understand where I'm going wrong...but no, still not got the knack. Hopefully then, the arrival of the microwaveable egg poacher will mean I can put my past failures to bed!


Instructions are simple. Just fill the compartments with water, crack in an egg (you can make 2 at a time), cover with a bit more water and microwave for just over a minute....it really couldn't be easier. Not even I could get this wrong.

I decided to top this easy smoked haddock and garlic prawn kedgeree, a weeknight favourite here, with said microwaved poached egg and it was a lovely change to the normal quartered boiled eggs I put on top. This is mildly spiced to cater for children, but still very tasty and very welcome at the end of a wet and miserable summers day.

Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming giveaway where I'll be giving away an M Cuisine Egg Poacher to someone who hopefully has as many problems with poached eggs as I do!

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
