Chocolate Chip Cookies


Chocolate Chip Cookies
My maternity leave is looming, so I thought a nice batch of homemade cookies for my colleagues would be a nice gesture before I departed. Don't worry I'll be back in 9 months!!

Ingredients
100g dark chocolate
125g unsalted butter
100g golden caster sugar
75g soft brown sugar/ light muscavado sugar
1 free-range egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
150g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt

Method:
Step 1. Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment. Chop the chocolate into little chunks and set aside.
Step 2. Heat the butter in a small saucepan very gently until it has just melted. Meanwhile, put the two types of sugar into a mixing bowl. Pour the melted butter on top of the sugars and beat well with a wooden spoon.
Step 3. Add the egg and the vanilla and beat until well blended.
Step 4. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixing bowl and stir them in, then add the chopped chocolate.
Step 5. Dot heaped pudding spoonfuls of the mixture over the lined baking sheets, leaving plenty of space in between them--they really spread out while baking.
Step 6. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are just turning golden brown.

Best served straight from the oven with a nice cuppa!!

Abel and Cole's Cauliflower and Three Cheese Comfort Supper


 Cauliflower and Three Cheese Comfort Supper
Abel and Cole very kindly sent me a copy of their new cookbook recently which certainly helped me get over the disappointment of finding out they don't yet deliver in my area - one of the downsides of living in Cornwall! This recipe leapt out at me combining two of my favourite meals, cauliflower cheese and macaroni cheese! I obviously had to make it...and give it a few tweaks too.

I love the fact the recipe uses mug and dollop measures so you don't even need to get the scales out!
Cauliflower and Three Cheese Comfort Supper

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE CAULIFLOWER AND THREE CHEESE COMFORT SUPPER

  • Use different cheeses, such as gruyere or grana padana.
  • Up the veg by adding some broccoli florets too.
  • It can be made a couple of days ahead of time or even frozen.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies


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.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE GOLDEN SYRUP AND OAT COOKIES

  • The cookies freeze well so make a double batch and freeze half.
  • Change it up by adding a handful of raisins or chopped walnuts to the mixture.

Creamy Beef Stroganoff with Linguine


Creamy Beef Stroganoff with Linguini
I used some thin cut frying steaks for this easy stroganoff recipe. I usually serve stroganoff with rice but I felt like some pasta today so cooked some linguine to go with it. It's on the table in 30 minutes so a quick mid week meal idea.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE STROGANOFF

  • If you don't like mushrooms just replace with some extra beef.
  • A teaspoon of smoked paprika adds a nice subtle warmth to the dish.
  • The stroganoff can be frozen so why not make double and freeze half.
