    I like spaghetti aglio e olio a lot and it's really easy. It's a must that you add extra virgin oil at the end for the taste. I also love to add a sprinkle of salt and pepper.


    recipe - boil the spaghetti. when a few mins left, heat olive oil in another pan and fry 2 cloves sliced garlic (and chilli if you want). when the pasta is done, get rid of water and add the spaghetti to the garlic and swirl it around. when put it on your plate add extra virgin oil and swoosh around. and you're done.

    anyone got a nice easy recipe to share? if it's more complicated that's ok too.

    Really tasty and easy homemade pizza: use a tortilla wrap as the bass, then those squirty tubes of tomato purée, plus whatever toppings you want, then 10-15 minutes in the oven et voila!

    I make a MEAN breakfast burrito that is extremely easy to make and incredibly tasty.

    U need breakfast sausages (porky), smoked streaky bacon (yeah I know...), whole eggs, butter, tortilla wraps (white, wholemeal taste like ****), salt, pepper (for eggs), SRIRACHA sauce and mayo (trust me it works).

    Scramble the eggs. See jamie oliver's YT video of scrambled eggs if u don't know how - American style preferably for this recipe. Don't just make rubbery, crap eggs, you want them to be soft and silky. The key is PATIENCE and low-medium heat. High heat turns eggs hard and rubbery. Blergh.
    Heat the tortilla(s) for 30 seconds each side.
    Cook the bacon and sausages.

    Place the tortilla(s) on a board, add 1 tsp of sirracha and spread it on the tortilla. Repeat the same thing for mayo. Increase amount if you want (I prefer it extra saucy but be careful cos sriracha is hot af). Add the scrambled egg. I use 1,5 large eggs for each tortilla wrap so if I wanna make 2 wraps, I will scramble 3 large eggs. Lastly, add 2 sausages per tortilla and 2 rashers of bacon. Wrap it and enjoy. U can put some extra sauce as you eat.

    Delish.

    A recipe on north African eggs I found on youtube:

    Fry diced onions, diced pepper, garlic and chopped chilli in a pan, add diced tomato, add cumin seeds, make some holes in the mixture and crack eggs into it, cover the dish and cook the eggs on a low heat. Finish with spring onions.

    Boiled eggs

    no not really.. :lol: So here is my very own rainbow rice recipe:

    -------------MY RAINBOW RICE RECIPE*--------------

    You will need:

    • Four or more (variant on amount of people) ‘boil in the bag’ bags of basmati rice
    • Dark soy sauce
    • Pepper
    • Ginger (~half of a small sized one)
    • 1 Red, 1 yellow and 1 green bell pepper
    • 3 medium to small plastic tubs of lardons
    • Spring onions
    • Celery sticks
    • Carrots
    • Ham
    • Garlic
    • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • A large (I’m talking real large)wok or stir-fry pan


    • 1) Right, so you have all the ingredients you will need (I think). Start with gathering 4 separate tubs for the vegetables.
    • 2) Finely chop the carrots, celery, peppers and spring onions anywhere between 5mm and 1 cm^3. Put these into their designated bowls. (The amounts can differ as much as you want, just not too much spring onion 😊 )
    • 3) Grate/cut the ginger and finely chop one separate piece of garlic, whatever you call them XD
    • 4) Pour in the oil until it’s about the size of your palm to your fingers. Set the gas to medium heat.
    • 5) Pour in them lardons!!!
    • 6) Wait. Whilst waiting, prepare the rice into a large bowl and separate them by moving your hands, CLEAN HANDS, in a kneading motion. Set aside. Slice the ham into squares about 3cm^2 (You can tear it but slicing them looks tidier)
    • 7) Once nearly cooked put them spring onions, ginger and garlic in. Up the heat a little bit.
    • 8) You may have deducted or added some vegetables into this recipe which is just why I like it. So you start by adding in the hardest vegetable we have (carrots) and you move down the scale to the softest vegetable which is the bell peppers. Make sure each different vegetable is partially cooked before moving on to the next.
    • 9) Dunk in the rice, stir it in. Sprinkle some pepper and lower the heat to about 1/3. Taste the food on your hand and add the soy sauce necessary to make it desirable (soy sauce is basically liquid salt).
    • 10) Make any edits you want to make and add extra cooking time if you don’t think that it’s thoroughly cooked enough. Turn off the heat and enjoy whilst hot. VOILA!!! MY VERY OWN RECIPE!!!!!!

    Gambas Pil Pil. A nice and easy Spanish/Arabic influence tapas lunch snack, great with a French stick for dipping and served with a glass or two of some Rioja or Cava:

    Fresh uncooked peeled prawns
    A good dollop of Olive oil (two tablespoons)
    Chopped bird-eye red chilli - as many as you dare! (wash your fingers and keep away from eyes, nose and todger. You have been warned. lol)
    2 cloves garlic peeled and sliced or chopped
    Salt to taste and some parsley for garnish.

    Heat the oil in a frying pan until just smoking, add chilli, garlic and prawns.
    Fry in hot oil until the prawns are pink - keep moving the ingredients around to stop then burning.
    Serve in a earthenware tapas bowl sprinkled with crushed salt and topped with parsley for garnish. Make sure all of the oil gets served.

    Prep time 5 mins,

    Cooking time 5 mins.

    Dunking the bread in the oil is the best!

    A variation is to change the prawns for chopped chorizo sausage, add some chopped tomato, heat until piping hot and mix through with cooked spaghetti.
