Otherwise, how do I explain the dead alpaca in the fridge to my kids?” Well, sweet reader. Following that line of reasoning, here are 10-plus strategies for reducing your meat intake. Of course, if you’d like to change anything or add your own suggestion, the comment section awaits. 1) Have one or more meatless nights per week. 2) Buy less meat.

Chef Rowley Leigh, Cafe AnglaisPeach, tomato and basil salad Pour boiling water over six white peaches and let stand for 10 to 30 seconds, depending on the ripeness of the fruit. Refresh in cold water and skin. Do the same for six large tomatoes, which should still be firm and full of flavour. Slice the tomatoes thinly and salt them. 2. We go mad whenever English tomatoes are in season - the kitchens are filled with so many that we could probably fill a bathtub with them. 3.

When it comes to cooking, there's no doubt about it: time is the chief obstacle to getting started. If you’re pressed for it, whipping up a three-course meal can seem as overwhelming as running a marathon in a bunny suit. That’s why it pays to know some tricks. Some cheap tricks.

Get Over The Fear Of Cooking At Home… I love to cook at home, but it wasn’t always this way.

Get Over The Fear Of Cooking At Home…

I remember thinking that boiling vegetables and grilling a chicken breast (pre Vegetarian days) was an adventurous task. If I was feeling particularly frisky I would put some black pepper on before cooking… oh la la!! I ate plain and reasonably healthy but didn’t cook very exotically not because I did not love exotic food but because I had a fear that it would come out tasting awful. Many people have conveyed this same excuse to me when expressing why they don’t cook at home.

Then I became Vegetarian (see my post about Why I became Vegetarian). I have always loved Indian food and even pre-Vegetarian I had often ate Vegetarian meals at the curry house. Later on I became extremely budget conscious and found that Italian food was especially cheap to make so started experimenting with pasta sauces created totally from scratch and often also attempted Chinese style dishes and more and more Indian food.

Start simple. Thanks a million,
