Easy Beef STEW

31 January, 2014

IMG_2051

Winter always screws with my emotions, not to mention my skin tone; yep us mixed chicks get pasty, pasty come winter time. I don’t know about you but as soon as the cold and dark winter months hit in, all I want to do is eat something hearty, curl up on the sofa, poooooossibly include some alcohol, (always include alcohol) and just lay there, like a stick of broccoli staring gormlessly into the distance whilst I watch trashy TV. Oh wow I sound attractive, but I’m ill, forgive me! Right now I would happily hibernate on my sofa until the summer. I’m not a winter girl, the whole, “oh wow look at the snow isn’t it pretty!!” That’s not me, God no, I’m more of a, “oh wow look at this beach and look at my sun lounger isn’t it fetch!!” Yep, more me.

Lasagne, cottage pie, stew chicken, stew anything thats Bexy come winter time, I’m really not that hard to figure out. Yesterday I went with beef stew served with mashed potato, seriously mashed potato and I need to get a room because I cannot control myself when I’m around it. It’s just so soft, so thick, so creamy, so sexual?

Hmmm, okayyyy. Recipe after the jump!

Lobster Mac & Cheese

4 September, 2013

Right well, what can I say about this other than you need this recipe in your life, trust me you do.

Two things before we go any further… 1) My photography skills are clearly still not the best but hey I’m over it and I’m sure you are too. 2) This recipe isn’t the healthiest, I’m over that too and no I don’t eat like this everyday, think of this as a special treat dish. To be honest I hate that I even have to write that it’s just there will always be certain individuals who will comment on how I need to post more healthy dishes and ask, is this how I always eat? My theory is you all know how to make a salad, roast a chicken or cook a piece of salmon right? Course you do! Plus what would life be without cheese and pasta and lobster and cream!! Ok moving on! :)

Now at first I was just going to add lobster to a standard mac & cheese simples… That was until I saw THIS RECIPE. This woman takes Lobster mac & cheese to a completely different level, just have a read of her bio she’s cooked for JFK junior for christ sake! After I saw her blog post normal lobster mac & cheese ( stirring lobster bits into a cheese sauce then mixing it in with your al dente macaroni) seemed like an embarrassment; I mean she calls it an abomination. This woman is clearly my mac and cheese spirit animal.
No, no, no I knew what I had to do and I was ready no matter how hard the task to face the consequences. This way was the only way.
Yes the recipe is alot more intimidating, yes it includes fancy cooking instructions such as, start by cooking our crustacean friends in a court-bouillon.” and yes you all couldn’t give a flying fuck about my little intro here you just wanna know how to make this so let’s just get on with it because oh baby it is worth it.

This recipe is my take on the scallops you can buy from Borough Market in London, pictured below. If you haven’t tried them yet you must because they’re incredible. As you can see they used three scallops compared to my one. I promise I’m not being stingy, I bought queen scallops which are much bigger than the ones you see below, I served my dish as a starter so it was just the right amount. This recipe also involves bacon (yep my love affair continues…) I think you can actually convert a non scallop lover with this recipe, the combination of stir fried vegetables and a shit load of bacon completely switches up the game. Oh and on top of all of that it’s super easy and super quick to make woop de woop!
