    Caramel Shortcakes......mmmmmmmmm

    Ok now heres what i believe is the best caramel shortcake recipe i have ever used

    THE BASE
    --------
    You Need:
    4 oz margarine or butter* 2 oz caster sugar* 6 oz self-raising flour

    THE FILLING
    -----------
    You Need:
    1/2 a large tin or 1 small tine of Nestle's Condensed Milk* 4 oz margarine or butter* 4 oz caster sugar* 2 tablespoons golden syrup

    TOPPING
    -------
    You Need: 6 oz plain chocolate

    *INSTRUCTIONS*
    --------------
    Heat the oven to 350oF/180oC Gas Mark 4. Grease a 7" x11" swiss roll tin. To make the base, cream the margarine and sugar together until light and fluffy.
    Sieve the flour and fold into the creamed mixture. Press the mixture evenly over the base of the prepared tin and bake in the centre of the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
    To make the filling, place all the ingrediants in a saucepan, heat gently until the sugar is dissolved then boil for 5-10 minutes stirring continuously. Spread quickly over the cooked base and allow to cool!
    To make the topping, place the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water and allow to melt over a low heat. When melted, quickly pour it over the caramel filling and if you want your dessert to loook a bit on the fancy side, swirl ontop of the chocolate with a fork to make a design. Mark into portions before the chocolate sets firm and make sure you keep in fridge for up to 1 hour before serving.

    Nice Chicken-ey thing

    Serves: 2

    Sear 2 chicken breast fillets for one minute in a pan. Take them off the heat and place on a plate.

    Chop up an onion and some mushrooms and fry them for about 3 minutes in the pan. Add some chopped garlic.

    Pour in some white wine.

    Place the chicken breast fillets in the wine and cover the pan with a lid and let it simmer. Add salt, pepper and some oregano.

    After about 5 minutes place two big dollops of creme fraiche in the sauce and stir it in.

    After about another 5 minutes, check to see that the chicken is thoroughly cooked through.

    Serve with saute potatoes and vegetables.



    It's delish!!!

    Rhubarb crumble........

    simmer some rhubarb, water, sugar (lots), and a bit of ginger in a pan.


    Blend together butter, flour and sugar for the crumble, place on top and bake.


    It's delicious!

    This is THE BEST thread!!

    Ok i have a really really good one for vegetable soup..... :top:

    I make this without a recipe - i made it up so the quantities may vary a bit sorry! :rolleyes: But for about 4-6 people:


    You Need:

    butter/oil
    Big pot/pan
    Hand Blender/blender/really good masher and mashing technique :p:
    dried herbs (provenciale are good!)
    water
    2 vegetable oxo cubes
    salt and pepper
    2 med-large onions
    5 potatoes
    4 carrots
    and some kind of green vegetables (brocoli, cabbage, leek) - whatever you want really! Just do about the same amount of vegetables for each person as they'd eat with a meal.


    Ok take a large pan/casserole dish (with big sides) and peel and chop up the onions.

    Sautee (fry lightly) the onions in the pan with quite a bit of butter/oil.

    Peel and chop the other vegetables into little cubes and add them to the onions.

    Wait for them to brown slightly and then add water - add just enough so that it's nearly covering all the vegetables.

    Add the oxo cubes, salt and pepoer and about 2 tsps of the herbs and bring to the boil. Once boiling turn it down and leave to simmer for a while (if you have a lid for the pan put it on - it will take less time)

    Check that the vegetables are cooked - they should be really soft (poke them with a knife or something)

    Get a hand blender (these are probably best but you could tip the soup into a big blender or if you don't have one use a potato masher and mash very hard! (Tried and tested hehe) and just zzzz (blend) it a bit until it's the texture you want it to be (whatever your preferences are)

    And voila - there you go! This soup is magical honest! I only hope i've given you the right recipe :rolleyes: lol

    I actually love cooking and am glad to help so if anyone wants any recipes PM me or post or whatever and i'l find them for you!

    Cornish Pasties by Scubar

    Ingredients
    For the Pastry ( This is for Short-crust)

    One and a half Cups Plain Flour
    Lard or vegetable fat
    Pinch of salt
    Water
    For the pasty filling

    Chuck steak
    Two Large potatoes
    Half large turnip (swede)
    One large onion
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Water

    Cornish Pasty Recipe Method
    The Pastry
    Place flour and salt in a bowl, rub in the fat, until the mixture is so fine that it falls through the fingers. Tip mixture onto a lightly floured table top. With your index finger make a well in the centre of the mixture. Add water a little at a time until it forms a pliable but stiff dough.

    The Cornish Pasty Filling
    Finely chop the steak. Dice the potato, turnip (swede) and onion. You may prefer to slice them. Add seasoning. Mix all in a bowl or to be really authentic use your kitchen table top.

    Using a floured table top roll out half the dough to a circle the size of a plate. Make a mound of the filling in the centre of the dough. Dampen round the edge of the dough with either water, or milk. Fold over the dough, to make a half moon shape, crimping the edges. Make a slit to let out steam. Brush with beaten egg to glaze.

    Cooking your Cornish Pasty Place on lightly greased metal baking tray in the middle of a preheated oven, for around 40 minutes at 450 F . The pasty is cooked when their undersides turn brown and crisp.


    and they are so nice its unbelievable

    And even though I know this is a meal recipe thread (from what I know :eek: ), I thought it wouldn't hurt to add some info about healthy snacks I eat from time to time :p:

    One of which is the creamed corn and cheese on toast thing, where you lightly toast some bread, then add cheese and creamed corn on top, put in griller on medium for 15 mins. Or around then, depending on your griller.

    Other snack is the fruit and nuts one. Have recently discovered 'Fruit & Nut's' by Sunbeam and haven't looked back ever since. Perfect for 'in-btw-meal' snacks, when doing an assignment or something :cool

    Filling, but not heavy. Just right Happy cooking/creating snacks!

    This is the quickest meal ever to make, I nicked it offa that bloke Gary Rhodes.

    Grilled Cod and Sauté Leek

    (or fish 'n' veg)

    Ingredients:

    Cod
    leek
    mayo, lemon juice & mustard

    Zis is vat you do:

    Mix up a little mayo (~1 tablespoon) with a little mustard (1 t/spoon again) and a tiny winy bit of lemon juice to make a dressing for the fish. Spread this over the cod fillet and stick under the grill until the dressing is bubbling hot and dark brown (not burnt of course) and the fish should've cooked by this time too. Wayhey.

    Whilst the cod is cooking, slice up some leek and chuck it into a frying pan with a little hot water and some butter. Keep this over a hot flame for a few minutes (until the leek has softened). I guess they call this sautéd leek.

    Can't possibly take any longer than about 10minutes and it tastes suprisingly good, although it looks a bit weird. All complaints to Mr. Rhodes please, not me.

    I'm adding this because I'm just about to make it and I thought I'd share.
