Cooking for two requires a different mindset than cooking for larger numbers. Roasting whole joints of meat or cooking up big side dishes to share are 'off the menu'. As a result of this often much more planning is required, that is not a bad thing, I do it all for you.
Don't worry, if you are cooking for more going in the other direction and scaling up recipes is much easier!
My recipes are all designed with cooking for two in mind. Even those with larger serving sizes will be great for either freezing or repurposing as leftovers.
Chili is the perfect beer and football treat for me and these little cherry bomb chili bites sit right at the top of that tree for me and I will be spending my Saturday afternoons sat in the garden with a cold beer and a load of these and the dulcet tones of the BBC coverage of the football.
I had so much fun planning, shooting and cooking my chip shop Fish & Chips recipe, it is not something we cook very often for obvious reasons but every now and then it is good to say ‘take a stroll’ to all the health nonsense and cook and eat something that makes you clap your hands like a child.
This chicken Balti recipe definitely says more about where and when I was raised than any other recipe here on Krumpli. I was born in the mid-1970’s in the UK’s second City. Birmingham and if it were to be a Country its national dish would almost certainly be a Chicken Balti. Or it would have been back when I was growing up anyway!
My pea & potato vegetable terrine kinda came up by accident and I am really glad it did, a friend in a Facebook group posted the ‘original’ recipe to this and the moment I saw it I knew that I wanted to put my own little spin on it and make it my own.
Calling naan bread ‘the King of Indian flatbreads’ may sound odd but I am from Birmingham and was bought up on Balti and Naan bread, the Balti thing is a whole new post but Naan Bread are leavened flatbreads traditionally cooked on the inside wall of a tandoor oven.
I am sure I have mentioned that we have half a dozen or so plum trees in our garden and given my propensity towards cooking from scratch one of my favourite ways to use a few is in an Asian Plum Sauce…
It would be very easy to take the Donut Recipe and spin it out into a million posts but that will be cheating you guys and a case of writing for writing sake. So here you go just one basic donut recipe and then you can run with it and explore the endless possibilities of coating, glazing or stuffing.
This fennel soup recipe is bright, vibrant and packed full of summer flavour. The aniseed flavour of the fennel is perfectly complimented by almost citrus like sorrel making it the perfect summer soup!
