As I’ve said before, my recipes aren’t really recipes – more the assembly of stuff I like. Still, I thought I’d share! Some things I have been cooking lately –

Kinda-Mexican Eggy Bread

2 eggs

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp chilli flakes

splash of milk

2 slices of bread

Whisk all but the bread (duh!) in a baking tray or other fairly flat dish. Soak each side of the bread in and fry over a medium-high heat in a non-stick pan. Top with salsa and chow down!

Smoky Bacon and Pea Risotto

4 rashers of bacon

150g arborio risotto rice

300ml chicken stock

handful of frozen peas

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

Snip the bacon into lardon-sized pieces and dry fry in a large saucepan. Add the risotto rice and paprika, then stir fry for two minutes. Add the stock a ladleful at a time, letting it simmer and be absorbed into the rice. Once half the stock has been added, add the peas. Keep adding the stock until it’s all gone and the rice is softer than al dente. Serve to yourself and your hungry companion!

Carrot Cake

I can’t claim this next one, because it was cooked by my beloved and not me, but I just think the colours are so pretty and autumnal!

Well, I suppose I’d better go for a nice walk to start burning it all off!

    That’s how I feel when I cook and post a “recipe” – does it really count as a recipe if it’s common sense?

    Ha! That is totally me: its not a recipe, it is an “assembly of stuff” — perfect explanation!

    I’ll have to try this risotto; you’re right—there is something therapeutic about stirring for half an hour or so 🙂
