Keto Roast Brussels Sprouts

So people whose palates are sensitive to bitter tastes will tend to find Brussels sprouts unpleasant. When cooking Brussels sprouts make every effort to make sure…

Eggplant (Aubergine) Parmigiana

For my version of the classic Italian dish Eggplant Parmigiana, I like to add some minced beef to the tomato sauce, make the dish more substantial. Adding meat also makes this dish into a meal, instead being considered a side dish. I like to make the tomato sauce using a mixture of passata and tinned ratatouille,…

Roast Lamb Shoulder Recipe – Low temperature Method

After my success with cooking roast beef by the low-temperature method, I decided to give a  Lamb Shoulder the low temperature treatment.

Slow Cooker Pork Ribs and Chicken Wings Recipe

Occasionally I like to cook up a large slow cooker full of Low Carb Pork Ribs and Chicken Wings. I do most of the cooking in the slow cooker then I finish the Pork Ribs and Chicken Wings in the oven. The long slow cooking makes the meat very tender while the time in the oven crisps…

feta cheese and bacon salad

Feta Cheese, Olive and Bacon salad

This Feta cheese and bacon salad was concocted from some ingredients I found in the refrigerator.

As a contrast the lovely salty but creamy texture of the feta cheese is…

Pickled Egg Recipe

You will either love or loathe these pickled eggs. I’m not a great fan as I don’t enjoy other types of pickles, I just don’t find a strong taste of vinegar pleasant. However, I make these occasionally for my husband who LOVES them. For the husband the spicier the better so I add plenty of spices…
