Easy Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

27 Jan

Last week I tried something new for dinner and Sir Husband liked it so much I decided it was worthy of sharing! However, a word of warning: if you’re not fantastic with spicy food (like me) don’t put quite as much curry paste in as I did 😄

I found this recipe in a random food magazine from 2009. I think it was Recipes+, but I’m not 100% sure on that.

Anyway, here we go:

Delindel, the Queen of Last Minute Meals

14 Sep

Ever gotten home quite late at night, felt exhausted at the thought of cooking dinner, and then realised you forgot to get meat out to thaw anyway? Yeah that’s what happened to me tonight. So I thought I’d share a fantastic last-minute-I-forgot-I’d-have-to-make-dinner dinner recipe! Continue reading

Bagel Pizza Melts

11 Sep

I have been trying hard lately to inject some different dinner ideas into my repertoire. I have been reading the New Zealand Healthy Food Guide like mad trying to get some inspiration. One of the latest recipes I gave a go was Bagel Pizza Melts.

They are super easy to make and are super yummy! It turned out so well I thought I would share the recipe with you. I did alter it a little to suit what a like, so I reckon you could also things like bacon, etc to it too.

Tutorial: Crumbing Your Own Schnitzel

16 Aug

Today I have for you a very quick and delicious dinner idea! When I’m feeling a bit lazy or busy (as I usually am), cooking dinner always seems like such a chore, and my lads don’t have a clue how to cook (Brother-In-Law once messed up re-heating frozen chicken patties). However, my home-crumbed pork schnitzel is a simple and delicious meal that is just that little bit more special than the store-bought crumbed stuff (blech!). I forgot to take many photos unfortunately, but I’m sure you’ll all survive.

Delindel’s Kick-Ass Butter Chicken Recipe

13 Aug

For my very first solo post, I will be presenting you with my quick, easy, and oh-so-well-received butter chicken recipe. Now this ain’t no pre-made sauce icky rubbish! This is… THE REAL THING. I figure that we have to start off the real posting sometime, may as well start with a recipe for tonight’s dinner!

I never actually measure out how much I use of stuff, so just play around with it until you find what works for your taste. I will give some vague indications…

  • Chicken breast – one large breast can feed 2 people, I use 2 breasts because I feed 2 ravenous lads in addition to myself.
  • 1/2 cup uncooked white rice per person, cooked to however you like it! Since this is a “quick” recipe, I’m going to admit that I do it in the microwave.
  • 1 tsp (that’s a TEASPOON) turmeric                                               
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chilli seasoning
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp (that’s a TABLESPOON) butter
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • About 3/4 of a 500ml bottle of cream
  • Around 3 or 4 tbsp of tomato paste
