So I started cooking meals from scratch again this week as part of my get my shit straight life changes. Forgotten how satisfying it is and a little therapeutic at the same time, plus I’ve taken back control of what I’m putting in my body.
@ollyclarkdotorg what did you make??
@stardot https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/moroccan-lamb-apricots-almonds-mint I also did a poached egg, spinach and avocado on toast from Alan Murchison's The Cycling Chef: Recipes for Performance and Pleasure
@stardot The eggs was for Brunch
@ollyclarkdotorg we've made that before, not sure if it's from this recipe but pretty close to it, very nice.
@ollyclarkdotorg Got a cookbook recommendation / recipe site that is good? I used to subscribe to America's Test Kitchen, but didn't save the recipes and don't want to pay again :-)
@mnw When I was cooking from scratch 8 years ago I got alot of recipes from http://www.bbcgoodfood.com its not a memership site and the recipes are free to access, you might want to have a look as quite large database. I was given the Grand Tour Cook Book by Hannah Grant that has alot of good recipes which I use. Recentley my Dad bought me The Cycling Chef: Recipes for Performance and Pleasure by Alan Murchison and I'm gong to try a few of the recepies in it.
@mnw Although those books are cycling orientated they are good because you can tailor recipes to specific meal plan/diet i.e. low carb, gluten free, vegan etc which is useful to me when your trying to loose weight. Anyway hope this helps some.
@ollyclarkdotorg this is great. Thanks for the resources I’ll see what the bbc has for me and if the library has one of these cookbooks. Appreciate it
