Pasta with Sausages, Salad and Cakes

Pasta-with-Sausages-4Normally I don’t make the whole menu from the Jamie in 30 minutes meals, I think is too much, not only because it takes much longer than that but because you don’t need the dessert, you make a kind of healthy meal a bit unhealthy. But this time was on Sunday I had plenty time and on Sunday you can have a bit of extra cake, so I decided to make the whole menu. It was good, the pasta was fantastic, the cake was too much, as I expected, we were full, but the taste was great.  (more…)

Ossobuco alla Milanese

Ossobuco-alla-Milanese-9Of course being risotto one of our favorites at home and one of my specialties, the first recipe from Jamie’s “Comfort Food” that I would try had to be this one. I think one of the best meals I had in long time. It was a long elaborate meal, even that in the book says 2 hours and 30 minutes, in my case was 1 hour extra, but I really didn’t mind, neither my family, this risotto has turned out to be the favorite at home and I am going to make soon again, I challenge you to make it as well, it is worth!  (more…)

Tortilla de Patatas (Spanish Tortilla)

Tortilla-8I think tortilla is one of the favourites and easiest recipes from the Spanish kitchen that you can make. You can eat warm but also cold, that makes a perfect meal for a picnic or to eat in a sandwich. We always say that if you potatoes and eggs you can always have people for dinner. Of course there is a bit of trick if you want to make the perfect tortilla, it is a matter of practise and to have the right cover to turn it around, that also needs skills. Well maybe you can start practising now, so get ready to start making your perfect tortilla. (more…)

Speedy Scalopine

Speedy-Scaloppine-5On Friday’s normally is only the 2 of us at home for dinner, so I try to find simple recipes but still delicious and of course full of vitamins. This Speedy Scalopine from Nigella from her book Kitchen is one of those. Very simple to prepare and depending on the vegetables/salad you use, can have a lot of vitamins, the great taste comes from spices you use in the scallop, just perfect.  (more…)

Pasta Bolognese

Pasta-Bolognesa-4Pasta Bolognese must be one of the most populars sauces there is, everybody has his/her own way of making and of course I also have mine. The basic is like any bolognese, minced meat and tomatoes, what it makes different from the rest are the spices/herbs that I use plus of course I also add some vegetables, to make it a bit more healthy. Normally I made a big pan, so sauce for 6 people, that way I can freeze the half to eat another time when we don’t have much time to cook.  (more…)

Risotto with Mushrooms

Risotto-with-Mushrooms-5

Risotto is per definition one of the favourites at home, with all kind of ingredients, most of the time I make the vegetarian versions some how they are the most creamy. This risotto with mushrooms is from the book Jamie 30 Minutes Meals, it is is just so delicious, quite easy but as all risotto’s impossible in 30 minutes 😉 In the book is a full menu, risotto, salad and dessert, I only made the risotto and part of the salad, no dessert to keep the meal healthy and all took me about 1 hour cooking, but still I love it and I am going to make again, who cares about the time when a meal is good!  (more…)

Minestrone

Minestrone-3

Minestrone soup is one of our favorites at home, normally I use a basis with passata, but this version from Nigella from her book “Kitchen” is absolutely delicious. The good thing from such a soup is that you can just change the ingredients with whatever you might have left over in your refrigerator, perfect to avoid food waste. Also is just what I called a vitamin bomb, since you are using a lot of vegetables and soup is one of the healthiest ways to have your vitamin portion for the day. (more…)

Pasta with Chicken and Vegetables Ragu

Pasta-with-Chicken-4

At home we are used to eat pasta, most of the time of with mushrooms or minced meat in a good sauce of course, but chicken is something we don’t do much. When I saw this recipe in the book “Jamie 15 Minutes Meals” I thought, that one I need to try and what a fantastic idea that was, a very healthy meal, full with veggies and a bit of chicken, just for the twist. (more…)

Risotto Bolognese

Risotto-Bolognese-4Risotto is one of our favourites at home, actually my daughter says that is my speciality always works, is great and event that for some people might give a lot of work, I enjoy the slow cooking, spoon by spoon. In this recipe from the book Kitchen from Nigella, she gives a twist with another basic sauce the bolognese, something that you will only think to combine with pasta and it is a great combination.
