Facebook Twitter Donna Hay - Recipes. Chicken with Hazelnuts, Cinnamon and Maple Syrup. When discussing my plan to make this dish with a friend, she helpfully pointed out that my ‘bizarre’ choice of ingredients for the chicken marinade might be better suited to cake or biscuit then a savoury meal.

Chicken with Hazelnuts, Cinnamon and Maple Syrup

Followed by ‘what are you gonna serve it with a tablespoon of Nutella?’ This coming from the person who could single handedly create a twenty-man raft on the Thames with the amount of Salad Cream pots she gets through in a month – as if i was going to listen.

Meat with a twist of fruit - from pomegranates to peaches. In British cooking, meat and fruit tend to star in separate stages of a meal.

Meat with a twist of fruit - from pomegranates to peaches

Sure, pork has always had its apple, turkey its cranberries, and ham a spoon of chutney, but generally, a savoury dish was exactly that. No longer. Once seen as an exotic combination, sweet-savoury pairings are now commonplace and very enticing. In restaurants and home kitchens, peaches, rhubarb and mango have all moved in on the main course. Bets are that this twist is going to be a big part of your eating this summer, thanks to our growing appetite for cooking from around the globe, and especially the continued march of Middle Eastern cuisine. Yotam Ottolenghi has led the way in bringing Middle Eastern and North African flavours to our tables.

Caribbean flavours are likely influencers this summer, too. So there are plenty of options for adding a fruit twist to your meat and two veg. Serves 4. Recipe: Sticky Spiced Chicken Wings (Gordon Ramsay) - MasterCook. Half Baked Harvest - Made with Love. Can you guys tell what I am doing here??

Who knew?!? Ok ok, I may have noticed a slight dip in the month-long forecast for our stay here when we were driving away from winter in Kansas city. But hey, if a “dip” here means just pulling on a pea coat (vs. my usual puffy-furry-down-lined-marshmallowness at home), walking around town in a crisp breeze (vs. trudging through snow and negative windchills) for just a few days (vs. what I’m pretty sure feels like decades at a time at home)…I’LL TAKE IT.

Spicy Peanut Chicken Soba Noodle Salad

I don’t. Five months of washing dishes by hand means I’ve completely forgotten what life was like back when I had a appliance friend to help me out with my least favorite domestic chore of all the chores, ever. Although laundry is a close second on the list. I think the last time I ironed something was when my mom first taught me how to use an iron. Just kidding Mom! The dishwasher thing was totally on accident, because when we bought this house we were so in love with its charm that we sort of, um, forgot to check for a dishwasher.

And suddenly we found ourselves moving in and there I stood, looking around the little kitchen, imagining all the yums that would be created and how cute it would be after a little sprucing up to the cabinets, and suddenly calling in my Emergency Voice to Bjork in the other room if he knew all along there was no dishwasher here?!?!

Starting us off as the most important part of any recipe IMHO – the sauce. This homemade teriyaki sauce is thick and velvety, sort of like a take-out or store-bought teriyaki in terms of texture, but made from scratch in, like, two and a half seconds, without refined sugar and without cornstarch.

The base of the sauce is made with medjool dates soaked in water and pureed with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and rice vinegar. It’s thick and sticky by nature, but it doesn’t have to stay that way – you get to take full control of sauce consistency (smooth and velvety? Chinese make-away: how to make homemade crispy duck.

I was showing off to my brother-in-law recently, recounting how I once ate crispy duck at an open-air restaurant in Laos. After a starter of cold duck’s blood in a soup dish topped with golden, crisp fried shallots, we were served a huge platter of roasted carcass, and encouraged to toss the bones over our shoulders for the stray dogs to chew on. “Gosh,” said Rupert pensively. “It wasn’t a bit like that at the Mandarin in Lingfield.” His eyes grew moist as he recalled his childhood outings to the takeaway, with its brown smoked glass windows and steamy waiting area at the front.

I’ve been really enjoying reading other people’s blogs lately, I’ve shrugged off my inferiority complex which has been green with envy at the rapier wit of their child’s first day back to school or the renovations they are doing to their vast farmhouse kitchen somewhere in North Dakota.
