Cinnamon Rice Crispy Treats Rice Crispy Treats are one of my favorite snacks to make. Not only because I can have them done in less than 10 minutes, but also because there are 1001 variations you can use. I love to add peanut butter or frost them with something made of chocolate. But this variation easily makes it into my Top 5 Rice Crispy Treats of all time list.

Black Bean Chilli with Avocado Salsa - Mexican The now familiar chilli con carne has suffered from its fair share of convenience shortcut versions but when it's made properly, with the right ingredients, it is still a wonderful concept. I think this version is even better than the original, using black beans and introducing the subtle flavouring of lime and coriander – and adding a contrasting cold garnish at the end. Serves 4-6 This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Winter Collection. Either pre-soak the beans overnight or start this recipe 3 hours ahead of time and begin by placing the beans in a large saucepan, covering them with cold water and bringing them up to boiling point and boiling for 10 minutes. Then turn the heat off and let them soak for 3 hours. Towards the end of the soaking time, pre-heat the oven to gas mark 2, 300°F (150°C). After that, take the casserole, heat half the oil in it and cook the onions, garlic, coriander stalks and chillies gently for about 5 minutes. Then remove it and brown the rest in 2 batches.

Fennel & How to Use It All About Fennel & How to Cook With It On the whole, the foods that restaurants deliver to the consumer use basically the same ingredients that a home cook would use. There is, however, a short list of ingredients that are commonly used in commercial kitchens that are underused by home cooks. If you ask Anthony Bourdain, one of those ingredients is shallots. What is Fennel? Fennel is a plant whose leaves look very much like dill thin, waving frondy filaments of bright green. Fennel bulb, which looks kind of like a cross between an onion and the base of a bunch of celery, has a sweet, perfumy, anise-like flavor. How Can Fennel Be Used at Home When raw, the texture of fennel is cold and crisp.
