Super Quick Scallops in the Shell

This is only the second time I’ve cooked scallops.  The first time I’ve cooked scallops in their shell.  The method I’ve used today is extremely simple but wow did these taste good!  I know a lot of people aren’t sure what to make of scallops but trust me, if they are cooked well, they are unbelievably tasty.

Sumac Chicken Skewers by Dreaming Of The Good Life

It has been a couple of weeks since I cooked these beauties but they are certainly worth a mention.  It’s not my creation so I will not take any credit.  This recipe was taken from the Dreaming Of The Good Life blog.  If you like tasty food I would definitely suggest that you go have a look at all of the recipes.

If you like a kebab I seriously suggest you make this your go to recipe for a last minute meal on the BBQ.  It took me no time at all and it was packed full of flavour.  Just be careful not to overcook it or you’ll regret it.

Here are some more pictures from that cook.

The Benefits of Good Charcoal: Sweet Green Chilli Pork Shoulders

What charcoal do you use when you barbecue?  Whatever you can find in the supermarket?  Maybe you’re more bbq savvy and use brands like Big K instead.  Have you ever thought about looking for a local producer of charcoal? No?  I think you should give it a go and here’s why. Continue reading The Benefits of Good Charcoal: Sweet Green Chilli Pork Shoulders

Reverse Sear Steak

Have you ever heard of reverse searing?  No?  Then this is the best thing you’ll learn today.  Yes?  You probably already know everything I’m about to say but by all means, read it anyway.

If like me you love steak, you probably believed you could cook a pretty incredible steak already.  You’re probably right but this method of cooking your steak will definitely take your steak to the next level.  To cook this steak I adopted two new techniques picked up from the incredible community over in the CountryWoodSmoke Facebook group.  Dry brining and reverse sear.  If you are at all interested in BBQ and good food I seriously suggest you go and join that group.  Let’s start with preparing the steak.

“New” Camera. Olympus OM10

So I bought a “new” camera a week or two ago.  The Olympus OM10 35mm camera.  I don’t know how many of you still use 35mm film but I can tell you it isn’t too cheap.  Although the camera itself cost me around £60 (can be much less but I liked this tan version) including delivery – the film and developing of that film is quite expensive.  The 35mm film itself can cost £5 – £7 per roll.  I managed to get a pack of 20 for £10 which is pretty excellent considering.  The developing of this film will cost me £5 per 35mm film if I would like it scanned to a CD.  In the future, I plan to purchase my own film scanner saving me money in the long term.  Film developing would then only cost £2.50 per roll.  Still much more expensive than digital photography.

So why would I choose to use this camera? Continue reading “New” Camera. Olympus OM10

Growing Your Own

When cooking – Nothing is better than using the freshest ingredients possible.  Most of us don’t have the luxury of homegrown meat, for that you will need to visit a good butcher or fishmonger, but we can grow our own fruit and vegetables.  Whether you grow just a small amount in your garden or upgrade to an allotment – for at least a few months of the year, you can enjoy fresh salad, potatoes and almost anything else you feel like growing.

Cooking: Whisky Beef Burgers with Red Onion Chutney.

Today I fancied beef burgers and so I made some.  I was also in a more experimental mood that usual so decided to try something a little different.  At least for me anyway.  Whisky!  Today I cooked Whisky beef burgers with red onion, red onion chutney and gouda cheese in a brioche bun.
