This evening, I got home to find a nearly-empty fridge. Not being in the mood to cycle out in the pouring rain, I decided to deal with it, and see what I could make with what was there. This rather tasty meal was the result.

The other day, I ‘borrowed’ my mum’s Good Food magazine, and came across this lovely, simply recipe. I didn’t expect to be trying it out so soon afterwards, nor immediately after walking in at the end of a long day at work, but try it I did, and the result was more than satisfying.

 It’s been a while since I posted here, but I’ve been accumulating recipes and photos of said recipes in action during that time. One of those recipes that I’m particularly please with is this one for chicken noodle soup, from Smitten Kitchen.

This week, I’ve been lurking around some friends’ kitchen a fair bit, mostly due to not being able to get into my own until yesterday. Some of the meals we cooked up during that time were things I probably wouldn’t have thought of on my own, but I am glad we did. This apple sauce was part of one of them. It’s very simple, and beyond looking up ingredients for a rough gauge of quantity, we didn’t really use a recipe to make it. Nonetheless, here’s one for future reference.

It will probably become apparent as I add more to this blog that I really like soup. I’ve not always been a fan, but since I started cooking more, it’s fast become a favourite. Cooking soup is simple and relaxing, and the result is both tasty and convenient – a few days’ lunches just a microwave minute away.

One of my old faithfuls is tomato soup. It’s trickier to make perfectly in my student kitchen during term time, but it’s seriously tasty nonetheless

Checkered cookies have been a love of mine for years now, ever since a friend and I made pink-and-yellow ones to mimic slices of Battenburg back in sixth form. I’ve tried to make them a few times since, but as the recipe was in the friend’s recipe book, I’ve had mixed levels of success in recreating them. Over the Christmas break, though, I finally managed to make some that looked and tasted delicious.

Risotto is the perfect leftovers dish. You can put pretty much anything that takes your fancy in, and it’ll taste just fine. It takes me about 40 minutes to cook, from fridge to plate, and I’ve cooked it so often now that I don’t really need the recipe (though I can thank the little bit of card in my mum’s recipe binder for being there for me before my memory had caught up).
