Prawn cocktail revisited

I've recently rediscovered my love for prawn cocktail. It was always my starter of choice at restaurants when I was younger and I suddenly realised I'd not eaten it for years. Now it's regularly back on my lunch menu.


BBQ Season: Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is one of my barbecue favourites, far preferable than any sausage. It's very simple to make and is a great dish for entertaining as it once you have it in the oven, a bit of gentle forking just before serving is all that's needed.

Low FODMAP Staffordshire Oatcakes

Growing up with relatives in the Midlands, one of the special landmark treats of staying with my grandparents was having bacon and oatcakes for breakfast.  Lightly fried and served with a couple of rashers of bacon and a blob of ketchup, it made for a delicious start to the day. 

Low FODMAP Beef Satay

I love this recipe and it's quick and easy to make. The satay sauce is lovely, thick and flavoursome and the dish has loads of vegetables in, which I love.

Chocolate cake, igloos and poo

It wasn't intentional, but personally I like the imagery that the title of this thread conjures up. But if you're feeling a bit queasy, then please be assured there are no tales of a terrible dietary incident on a winter holiday...
