Last night I made AWT's whiskey & ginger ribs from the slow cooking book. Bloody brilliant and much nicer than the shop bought glaze that we compared it with. Used a normal yellow pepper instead of a long chilli/pepper thing and used whiskey instead of bourbon but it was just fantastic.

I'm trying to be more adventurous with cooking so please, tell me what new recipes you have made recently, how did it go and would you recommend it!

i've fallen madly for the HF-W shin of beef with ginger and soy receipe. I've made it loads and it never fails to please, my mum liked it so much she's started making it too

Jamie Olivers "Proper Blokes sausage fusilli" is my fave new recipe to cook at the moment. The combination of fennel seeds and the chilli are delicious - I could eat the whole pot of it.

Mmmm whiskey and ginger ribs sounds fab will have to try it!

Sleepless which book is that recipe from please?

Breedy, it really was fab. We had the leftovers last night stripped off the ribs and mixed with pasta sauce made from tinned chopped toms, an onion, a yellow pepper and some philly cheese.

Last week I started meal planning and used 5 new recipes (food obsessed grin) and the best was IMO a Moroccan chicken lemon and olive stew with cous cous from Drlicious mag's website. DH liked Bill Granger's lamb curry from Bill's Basics. This week it's more Bill, a Jamie at Home fav and a couple from WW books, and have managed to loose a stone in the last 5 weeks too!grin

Lamb and butternut squash tagine from cook yourself thin (ch 4 I think)-google it and you should find it no probs. I've made it a few times recently as, apart from a butternut squash and an onion (which both keep well for ages anyway), you can keep lamb in the freezer and everything else is store cupboard stuff. I added dried apricots for.extra nutrition.

Nothing very fancy, just Swedish meatballs with gravy, from an old book I bought at a sale. They licked their plates though.

Black beans and rice (moros y cristianos). It was swooningly delicious - don't have a slow cooker so I soaked the beans for 6 hours and then simmered with fried onions, peppers and garlic for an hour, mixed in uncooked white rice, a tin of tomatoes and some smoked paprika and baked in the oven for an hour to the top went crusty and it was all velvety underneath. Absolute heaven! Served it with a chopped salad of tomatoes, coriander and salad onions, and some warm tortillas from the supermarket. I costed it up and it served 6 for under £5 (ingredients for beans and rice about £2.50, 6 tortilla wraps £1).

How much water did you put in tyelperion?
I have been experimenting with stuffed tomatoes. I made yummy ones stuffed with breadcrumbs ,cheese and chives and the tomato middles and I made some interesting ones in which I mixed uncooked rice with the tomato middles and it cooked really nicely (basmati) but lacked seasoning and spices as I didn't put any in as I thought it wouldn't work.

I soaked in loads of water and changed the water twice.

When simmering I just kept topping up with boiling water as needed, so that the beans were always bubbling gently with enough water to cover. When I mixed in the rice I didn't add any additional liquid besides the tomatoes and then just bunged in the oven and left it for an hour.

ComradeJing Thu 01-Sep-11 14:38:28

Tyelperion that sounds delicious. Was it a recipe or just something in your head?

Xiaoxiong Thu 01-Sep-11 14:44:34

The bean part was in my head but got the idea to mix in uncooked rice from a recipe - I wasn't 100% sure it would work but it was perfection.

I think next time I may throw in some little chorizo sausages too.

Rick steins paella with chicken and rabbit, fantastic and tasted authentic for my fish hating family.
Going to try the pork in almonds tomorrow

Sushi rolls. I've now mastered perfectly slightly sticky but separate sushi rice.
