    There are some recipes here- mine included
    I shall, to use the very useful German term, "(ein)glieder" your recipes into the wiki! You certainly made a good effort with them, loser! (haha, that sounds weird, but it's kindly meant... I mean, your username is loser after all :rolleyes:).

    EDIT: Loser88, I notice that you don't include exact measurements... I would be forever in your debt if you could add the ingredients proper, although I realise your cooking style's very much like mine, I'm an improviser, and don't go for exact measurements. Thanks! If you don't know wikipedi'sch, then this template should help you:

    ''You will need:'' <br />
    *Ingredient one <br />
    *Ingredient two <br />
    *Ingredient three <br />
    *Ingredient four <br />
    *Ingredient five <br />

    *Ingredient seven <br />
    *Ingredient eight <br />

    Loser (hihi), just write them out here, and either I or Assos'll format them - although I've already put your recipes on the site, so it might be easier to do it there...

    Can you link me to the site I've not been on Wiki before and I'll have a go- may not be immediate though as going away for a while

    Cheers Assos!

    lazy meatballs

    250g minced lean beef or pork
    50g flour
    one egg
    half a large onion or one shallot
    few cloves of garlic
    any other fresh savoury herbs - thyme, rosemary, sage
    salt & pepper
    sunflower oil

    chop the onion, garlic and herbs. put these in a bowl with the mince and the flour, and the egg. put the oil in a frying pan, and put on medium heat. mix meat etc well (use hands). shape mixture into small balls, about the size of the palm of your hand, and pat flat-ish before putting in the frying pan. turn over after a couple of minutes. reduce heat, cover up and leave to cook for 15-20 minutes. serve with mashed potato (use butter and milk in the mash)

    alternatively, these can be boiled: mix all the ingredients in a bowl as before, but put a large saucepan of water on the boil. add rice to the mix (as much as will fit in the palm of your hand) and mix it in. then shape smaller round balls and once the water is boiling, drop them in gently. skim the fat off the surface for a minute or so. then cover and simmer for 15-20 mins, or less if you have quick-cook rice. these are nice in a clear soup with veg and noodles or just served with a garnish of steamed carrot/runner beans/asparagus
    Had these for dinner tonight they were scrummy

    Given the popularity of the Food & Drink board, and the fact that (to the best of my knowledge) this hasn't been done already, I was wondering if a great big thread of recipies should be created, with users adding their favourite/best dishes to it?
    I afraid it had...

    Merged into the old thread, as there seems no point in reinventing the wheel

    It is a good idea though ... I always missed this thread, it's almost as old as I am, UKL/TSR wise

    Sorry! I guess it was so old it had been locked. :p: Once I have time I shall go through the old <s>UKL<s> stuff and put the recipes in the wiki - it should certainly bolster it.

    Some of my fave recipes:

    Moroccan chicken with cous cous - costs about £3, serves 2/3

    Ingredients

    small courgette - cut into chunks or sticks
    2 chopped chicken breasts (or even thighs, or quorn pieces)
    chicken stock (about a pint?)
    finely chopped onion
    cumin, salt, pepper, chilli powder
    olive oil
    clear honey
    lemon (half really)
    small tin of chickpeas

    Fry the chicken and onion in the olive oil until cooked, add spices, and honey then stock

    throw in the courgette and chickpeas and cook until courgette is soft

    Add the juice of half a lemon, season to taste

    Serve with cous cous made with some lemon juice and black pepper, but a word of advice, don't pour the juice on your cous cous as it is very spicy!

    200 ml milk (add to veg stock)
    1oz butter
    2 tbsp flour

    Black pepper

    Method:

    Fry chicken for 5 mins, add leek and garlic to pan and fry until softened.

    Put milk and stock mix in a saucepan, add butter & whisk in flour. Heat on med high until sauce boils and thickens. Turn down heat and cook sauce for 1 minute.

    Add chicken & leek mix to sauce and stir. Then add herbs, cheese, chilli sauce (or cumin) and pepper & simmer for 15 to 20 mins or until chicken is cooked through.

    Serve with rice or pasta, it also makes a nice filling for a pie.

    Very easy:

    Pasta and Pesto

    Ingredients
    The only vital ones are pasta, and a pot of pesto. But I tend to add:
    - bacon
    - onion
    - mushrooms
    Oh and capers and parmesan on top.

    Method

    Put your pasta on to cook.

    As it's cooking chop some onions/bacon and fry them. I normally fry the bacon, and then when that's done take it out and chop it up (I hate touching raw meat haha) and while I'm chopping it fry the onions in the same pan the bacon cooked in, so they get a bit of the taste. It's yummy.
    Chop up and cook some mushrooms.
    Drain the pasta, and mix in some pesto.
    Add all the other cooked ingredients and mix them all up!
    Serve (add parmesan and capers if you want)

    It's so tasty and so easy. Obviously you could experiment with different ingredients, too. Pasta and pesto on its own is a good snack, too.
