Creamed English Peas with Mushrooms and Pimento

Last night, I did something of a “pub grub” menu with Cottage Beef Pies and Sticky Toffee Pudding, neither of which I prepared personally, but merely heated through what had been purchased from a mail-order gourmet frozen food supplier.  But the menu needed some rounding out and I researched what I seemed to have remembered

Kitchen Tapestry: Crock Pot Chili

This recipe has been updated from the original version posted April 9, 2009.   For something so simple, with relatively few ingredients, chili con carne, or chili with meat, a.k.a. “chili,” has developed a whole lot of mystique, much of which I deem unwarranted. Chili cook-offs as originally created in the late sixties were more drunk-fests

Cauliflower Mash

CAULIFLOWER MASH My partner really dislikes cauliflower, but I have persuaded him to try my cauliflower mash.  He is now an enthusiastic convert.  This very simple dish can be made in 15 minutes and is a wonderful accompaniment to the usual beef, pork, lamb, chicken and fish dishes that are served with the traditional mashed

Year of the Tiger Forbidden Fried Rice

Yesterday marked the second New Moon after the Winter Solstice, and hence, the Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year of 4720, the Year of the Tiger.  According to Chinese astrology, children born in the Year of the Tiger will be imbued with character traits of bravery, competitiveness, unpredictability, and confidence. They are very charming

Kitchen Tapestry: Southern Style Cream Peas

Without the moniker “Southern Style,” the reader might mistaken this recipe for something entirely different, called Creamed Peas, which calls to mind the axiom “grammar matters.”  The past tense of the word “cream” gives a clue to the difference, in this case, English green peas that are creamed after the fact.  The basic recipe are

Roast Beetroot

ROAST BEETROOT I just love beetroot.  I particularly love it roasted or pickled.  This easy roast beetroot recipe is a favourite in our family and although not a keto purist, I have adapted this recipe to be as keto and low-carb friendly as possible.  3 medium beets are used in this recipe and this will

Roasted Romanesco Cauliflower

ROASTED ROMANESCO CAULIFLOWER This is a truly lovely vegetable dish.  This lovely, earthy, dark green and beautifully shaped cauliflower is roasted with lemon and garlic and is the perfect accompaniment to roast beef (and keto Yorkshire Puddings) or with roasted or pan-fried chicken.  The lemon and garlic bring a fresh taste to what is sometimes

“Lundy” Cabbage Casserole

‘LUNDY’ CABBAGE CASSEROLE

This lovely dish is the perfect accompaniment for all meat and chicken dishes.  It is particularly good with pork, bacon, ham and sirloin steaks.  It’s a recipe I’ve adapted from www.dietdoctor.com and is now a firm favourite in our household.  I use savoy cabbage as it tends not to go as soft as other varieties and you can use whichever hard cheese is your favourite.  It’s border-line keto as this recipe comes out as a low-carb 11 carbs per serving.

Broccoli Cheese Casserole

It seems I’ve been on something of a casserole kick lately.  I find it strangely relaxing to expend effort preparing a recipe on the front-end, and then reclining for 45 minutes to an hour sipping a dry martini waiting for the final verdict to come out of the oven.  It’s also a great way to

Brown Rice Casserole

If you conduct an Internet search for brown rice casserole, what you’re generally going to find are a lot of casserole recipes that have brown rice in them, but are not casseroles dedicated strictly to the titular ingredient, many of which contain chicken, broccoli and cheese – not that there’s anything wrong with that.  In

Roasted Green Beans with Parmesan

ROASTED GREEN BEANS WITH PARMESAN

This is one of my favourite vegetable dishes.  It takes seconds to prepare and is a wonderful accompaniment to chicken, pork, steak, pies.  I found the recipe on www.dietdoctor.com and have only added a little more parmesan than they use.  This lovely, and simple, dish is really delicious and only has 6g carbs per serving. 

Rutabaga Fries

    I decided on a lark to make oven fries out of the oddest of root vegetables, a rutabaga. It’s referred to as a yellow turnip in some European countries, but the rutabaga is actually a hybrid of cabbage and the more traditional white turnip. Its texture is less dense than a turnip and
