really unhealthy but really yummy too!

get 3 digestive biscuits put them in a plastic bag and smash them with a rolling pin or some such to make crumbs

put the crumbs in a bowl and add 2 tsps margarine and 3 tsps brown sugar - mix until you have sticky crumbs

press crumb mixture into the bottom of a ramekin dish like a cheese cake base then fill the rest of the ramekin with squirty cream

sprinkle some more sugar on top and devour!!

its great for when you really just cant be bothered

Here's my favourite breakfast...

Take:
  • 4x rashers of bacon

  • 2x eggs

  • A load of grated cheese, not too strong


This is pretty simple really. Stick the bacon on the grill until it's crispy. Meanwhile, fry the eggs, trying to leave the yolks runny. Bunch the bacon up and, leaving it on the grill, place the eggs on top of the bacon. Simply sprinkle the cheese on top and grill it till melted.

Very unhealthy, but it's unbelievably satisfying.

Shami (Palestenian, Jordanian, Lebanese and Syrian) Dessert. Its name is Muhallabia but at home we just call it Maulabia as most Muhallabias out there are made without the ground almonds which is what makes this one special! Besides, it's way easier to pronounce Maulabia than Muhallabia:-

1/4 C ground rice

1/4 C sugar

3/4 C ground almonds

3 C milk

1tbsp rose water (you can add up to 2 tbsp)

pinch salt

handfull of pistachios (roasted + chopped)

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Method: Put aside 1/4 C milk to mix with ground rice. Heat the rest of the milk on medium flame. Blend the milk/ground rice mixture, sugar and salt into milk that is on the fire. Stir continuosly over medium heat till mixture bubbles slightly. Simmer for 5 minutes all the while stirring. After the 5 mins are up, stir in ground almonds till smoothe. Take off the flame, add rose water and continue stirring for a minute or two.

Dish into individual bowls. Sprinkle chopped pistachios on top of each portion. Leave to cool (preferably eaten chilled).

Enjoy!

--

ps. I am not an Arab but enjoy Middle-Eastern food and have been making the abovementioned dessert for quite some years now.

on this one, i dont know the actual measurements, but usually you can just use what looks right! sorry ...

tomato, mozarella and pesto bruschetta

ingredients!
-fresh tomatoes - chopped up quite small
-1/2 an onion - chopped
-mozarella cheese - chopped
-around 3-4 tbsps of green basil pesto (depending on how much tomato and mozarella is used - just need to well coat the other ingredients)
-fresh french baguette
-oil for cooking

method!
-take the onions and tomatoes and light saute in the oil - don't brown, just cook
-while this is cooking, slice the baguette into discs and v.lightly toast in an oven
-when the onions and tomatoes are soft, add the mozarella cheese and the pesto - and take off the heat
-spoon mixture onto the lightly toasted baguette discs and place back into a hot oven (about 200degs for a fan assisted oven) for around 10minutes or until the mozarella is melted!
ENJOY

Nice!

I'll go really basic!

Basic (French) Omelette (serves 1)

Time: 3 or 4 minutes

Heat some oil in a saucepan
Crack 2 eggs, in a jug.
Chuck in half an eggshell of water
Season. (Salt, pepper, herbs) (basil's good!)
Whisk. It doesn't have to be even. Use a fork if no whisk!
Pour into the hot oil. Keep it on a high heat.
Leave for a few seconds, it'll start to set.
Using a spatula, pull the edge of the omelette inwards.
The uncooked omelette will rush to the side of the pan and start to cook.
Keep doing this.
Once the omelette is almost set, chuck in any cheese/ham, and fold in half.
Serve immediately.

Don't wait until the omelette's fully cooked, it'll overcook with its own heat before you can eat it.

Cheese and ham are ideal fillings. You can replace the water with milk, or skip it completely.

You can double the portion size for a bigger omelette for two people, but really it's better to make two, it's so quick.

If you have an omelette sized pan, you're lucky! It'll be easier to stop it spreading out.

It'll take pratice to get right!

Hey guys, this inspired me to post in AAM about setting up a sticky for the Food & Drink section on this very topic.

A new thread would be created so that the TSR Wiki will be involved, with the original post including links to the both the original posts made and also the Wiki page.

Really just wanted to use your idea and take it further, as at the moment it'd just slip down the thread list and disappear.
But yeah, i'll update you when more happens, and contributions would be great .

Brilliant idea - I might add on a few pages for you to get started (see as you're having trouble getting on there for now) and link to the pages in a new post here. Then hopefully someone with mod pwoers in here will be able to sticky a thread about this!

EDIT: looks like we already have a number of recipes on the wiki - will collect them all together with these ones here too!

Flatbread Pizza

This is dead easy to make! And so yummy! Serves 1 but you can double the recipe for 2 if you prefer.

Ingredients for the flatbread:

3tbsp plain flour + extra for dusting
1-2tbsp water
2 tbsp olive oil

Optional but makes the flatbread more interesting- 1 tsp basil and 1 tsp coriander

For the topping:

The original recipe suggests tomatoes, but I use a tbsp red pesto on mine, tomato puree would also work pretty well
Grated cheese
Anything else you wanna put on it!


1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
2. Place the flour, seasoning to taste, oil and the water into a bowl. Mix well to bind, then place onto a lightly dusted surface to roll out, to form a 20cm/8in circle.
3. Place the flatbread into a frying pan over a high heat for 1-2 minutes, before removing from the hob and placing onto a baking sheet.
4. Add your topping and put in the hot oven for 4-5 mins until the cheese has melted
5. Enjoy!!
