ثنائي الخيار الملاح These are brilliant, if I say so myself! Joking apart, if you like your recipes to be quick, easy and more than a little cheaty, you will love these. They are the perfect treat to have up your sleeve when you find yourself with an unexpected play date and more children than you bargained for in your home after school. Proper pain au chocolat are, to say the least, tricky to make. These ones use a block of puff pastry and some chocloate to create a simple treat – lovely after school, in a lunch box or even as a cheeky part of breakfast. Plus, as with all my recipes, they are totally foolproof! Makes 9 pieces Preparation time: 10 minutes Total cooking time: 10-12 minutes 1 packet (320g) all butter puff pastry sheet (ready rolled) 100g good quality milk chocolate bar, broken into pieces 1 egg, beaten Pre-heat the oven to 220ºC/450ºF/Gas Mark 7 Unroll the pastry and lay the sheet out in front of you. Using a sharp knife, cut the pastry into 9 equally sized rectangles by dividing the pastry into 3 lengthways and then widthways. Divide the chocolate into 9 equally sized portions. On the narrow edge of one of the pastry rectangles, place a portion of the chocolate and roll the pastry up. Squash down a little on the edges of the pastry roll to seal it and crimp the edges lightly with a fork. Brush the top of the roll with some beaten egg and put it on a greased or non-stick baking tray. Repeat the process for the remaining pieces of pastry....

شريط الاسهم الاماراتية I did some work with Total Greek yoghurt over the summer and my challenge was to create 9 fun, tasty and healthy new lunchbox treats which would make a change from jam sarnies or salt and vinegar crisps. You have already seen the instant chocolate mousse which I posted earlier on in the week and here are four further delicious recipes. Probably my favourite of the four is my lamb gyro. It’s my take on the classic lamb sandwich, so synonymous with Greece. I had to be careful to ensure that the lamb stayed soft, moist and succulent when cooled down and I can promise you that it does if you follow my technique. Neither of my two kids are of school age but these gyros have become an instant hit in the house. As has the peanut butter dip. After all, Archie loves yoghurt and he loves peanut butter – what is not to like in mixing the two?! Plus it’s a great way to serve fruit slices… The fruit smoothie works brilliantly for breakfast as well as lunch. And the pasta salad uses the yoghurt in place of mayonnaise. A lighter choice, a different flavour – and a lovely snack, enhanced by some moreish crispy bacon. Peanut butter and Greek yoghurt dip This dip takes no time to prepare and is a great accompaniment to fruit. Feel free to slightly up the quantity of peanut butter if you would prefer your dip to be more, well, peanut buttery! Preparation time 5 minutes 3 tbsp Total Greek Yoghurt 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter A sprinkle of ground cinnamon...

الخيارات الثنائية تعرف كيف There’s just about enough time left for you to make this wonderful vanilla fudge before Valentine’s Day. Trust me – make these and wrap them up with a little bow and you will be a Valentine’s hero. I made them yesterday on my BBC Radio Show and they were fabulous. I’ll be honest, unusually for this blog, these are very much a grown up recipe to make. The sugar/butter/milk mix gets very hot and I certainly wouldn’t consider letting Archie anywhere near the boiling saucepan. He didn’t care – and was only too happy to eat the finished product! This recipe will give you soft, melting, sweet and crumbly fudge. Perfect for Valentine’s Day – or any other day for that matter – when only a decadent little sweet treat will do. Better still, you can make them from ingredients which you will more than likely have in your fridge and cupboards. Even if you don’t have the condensed milk, I reckon you can substitute it by doubling the milk quantity, especially if you are using full-fat milk. In other news, Archie and I have been in the kitchen quite a bit this week, in amongst the chaos of our life with our little baby Matilda. I’ll be switching on the cameras very soon and posting a video on here imminently… Listen to my full audio walk-through of the recipe here: http://www.mydaddycooks.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/fudge.mp3 Valentine’s Vanilla Fudge Prep time 5 minutes Cooking time 15 – 20 minutes 150ml full-fat or semi-skimmed milk 170g condensed milk 375-400g caster sugar 100g butter Good drop of vanilla extract Method: Mix the sugar butter and...

متى تداول اسهم اسمنت ام القرى I was all set do post a new video this week but was struck down by a horrid sickness bug. Then I was looking through some photos on my camera and came across some photos taken when Archie and I made this easy hummus recipe 3 weeks ago so I thought I would post the recipe – and the photos – on the blog! It is no exaggeration to say that we would be lost without store-bought hummus. Archie eats it at least once a week. On this particular occasion, there was none in the house – and he was adamant that he wanted hummus for lunch! Luckily I had a tin of chickpeas in the cupboard (I always keep a tin to hand to chuck into hearty soups or stews) and we also had some tahini (sesame) paste too. Admittedly tahini paste is not something you’d expect to have randomly in your cupboard but I had used it for a dip some months ago. It smelt fine so I decided we would make easy hummus! I know that it’s easy to open a pack of store-bought hummus but it’s also really satisfying to make it yourself. Our version was really zingy, had a lovely, thick texture and tasted deliciously fresh. Served with a dusting of mild paprika and some crispy pitta, it turned into a lovely lunch – wolfed down by both Archie and his daddy! You can adjust the quantities as you wish. Taste the hummus and add extra lemon or tahini if you think it needs it. Also, add extra water if you want a looser...

[RADIO] Toffee apples recipe (sticky!)

بيع اسهم الراجحي عن طريق الجوال Ah, sticky toffee apples are such a taste of my childhood and I couldn’t resist making them for my BBC Three Counties Radio show on Sunday, in time for Bonfire Night this week. You can listen to the 4 minute audio recording of me preparing these lovely toffee apples in my kitchen by clicking here: http://www.mydaddycooks.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Sequence-2_1-2.mp3 You can also listen back to the whole show, with brilliant Michelin star chef Tom Kerridge here on BBC i-player. The apples are extremely easy to make – although I would certainly be very vigilant as to when and how you involve your children because it does involve making a scaldingly hot syrup, which is boiled up to 140C. This recipe also makes a slightly softer toffee than I am used to from store-bought toffee apples – and Archie certainly appreciated the easy-to-bite sticky soft coating! Makes 6 apples Preparation time 5 minutes Total cooking time 20 minutes 6 Granny Smith apples 6 skewers/ lollipop sticks 225g demerara sugar 100ml water 1 large tbsp butter ½ tsp white wine vinegar Boil some water and leave the apples to soak in it for a couple of minutes to remove the wax coating. Take out the stems and skewer the apples from the top side. In a saucepan, mix together the sugar and water and bring the mixture to the boil. Simmer for 4-5 minutes, until the sugar is fully dissolved. Add the butter and vinegar and keep boiling until the syrup reaches the “hard crack” stage. You can tell this when a sugar thermometer reaches 140 degrees C. If you do not have a...

استراتيجية فعالة الخيارات الثنائية To this day, my cheese and vegetable muffins remain one of the top three most popular recipes on this blog. For my BBC Three Counties Radio Show, “Three Counties Kitchen” last Sunday evening, I cooked a brand new savoury muffin recipe. I may actually even prefer it to the original on this blog! If you want to hear the recipe from my BBC radio show, click on the player below: http://www.mydaddycooks.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/muffinsfull_1-2.mp3 Makes 12 large savoury muffins Preparation time 15 minutes Cooking time 20-22 minutes 310g self-raising flour 1 large/2 small courgettes 150g freshly grated parmesan 8-10 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, sliced 250ml milk 80ml olive oil 2 eggs Salt Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 5. Mix together the cheese and the flour, then coarsely grate the courgette into the bowl and, finally, add the sun-dried tomatoes. Add the milk, olive oil and eggs and mix to a lumpy, fairly thick batter. Lightly oil the muffin tins and fill each individual cup to the top with the muffin mix. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20-22 minutes. The muffins are ready when they are golden on top and fairly dense to the touch. Best served warm, 5 to 10 minutes after coming out of the oven but they can last a few days in an airtight container or several weeks in the freezer. If you are not eating them on the day they are cooked, just bring them to life quickly again with 20 seconds in a...
