What is better than a plateful of pancakes, on a cold and windy day, to warm the kids up when they come home from school? Asha is back with another #SimpleTastes recipe, and this is one we can’t wait to try out.
I know this series was supposed to be about ideas for weekday dinners, but I couldn’t resist putting this one in. And, to be honest, if you try it, you will see why. So many pancake recipes – and I’m talking about American-style thick pancakes here, not your thin French crepes – seem to involve multiple processes like separating eggs, melting butter and carefully spooning mixture into ring moulds, and, quite frankly, who has time for that, let alone the ensuing washing up? This recipe is simplicity itself, involving little more than forking together a few ingredients in a jug.
Asha is back with another quick and easy recipe for busy parents. While our Simple Tastes recipes are aimed at families, sometimes parents yearn for a ‘grown-up’ meal. It’s a great idea to get kids used to lots of flavours when they are little, but there are some dishes that most children will eye with suspicion, including anything too spicy.
This is another Nigella-inspired dish (I have aspirations to be a Domestic Goddess, but, oddly enough, the rush of domestic life gets in the way), but is probably isn’t one for the kids unless your children have adventurous taste buds. What it is fantastic for, however, are those nights when you have given the children something easy for dinner (for we all have fish finger evenings!) but want something yourself that is delicious but hardly little effort. This is the one. Trust me.
Does this sound familiar? The other week, I opened the fridge to start preparing our evening meal. I had plenty of ingredients, but couldn’t decide what to make. Spaghetti Bolognese, Fish Pie, Lasagne, Pizza, Steak and salad… all the old favourites, that I’ve made week in week out, and am just fed up making, never mind eating. I need some fresh ideas, and thankfully I’ve found someone to provide them to me – and you.
This is the first in a new series of recipe posts by Asha Fowells, called Simple Tastes. Every week or so, she will supply a new recipe that you might want to try and, if successful, then add to your regular rotation of meals. You can join in the discussion on our FB group, and add a photo of your creation.
