  • Crisp Parmesan chicken

      'View complete recipe' link is defunct.

  • Steak with grilled peppers and coriander salsa

    • Agaillard on October 09, 2016

      Simple - yet soooo enjoyable. I loved it with a perfect medium rare but grilled outside steak, the flavours combined each other very well. Miam :)

    • Agaillard on March 30, 2020

      Made yesterday... I still like it, but it was not as nice as I remembered. I think I have very slightly overcooked the steak and I like it quite grilled outside and very rare inside, I should cook it for a shorter time on a higher flame I think. The sauce also was less nice that I remembered, I am really not sure why. Yet this dish is so simple to make, healthy and flavourful, that I will make again. I served this time with a serving of rice.

  • Lizzie's Kitchen Irish soda bread

    • Agaillard on August 13, 2019

      Quick and nice! Be careful to respect the baking instructions, in particular temperature and baking time - I messed up with this, but my family loved it anyway and asked me for the recipe - will bake again. Note that the link to the recipe doesn't exist anymore. They put a similar one but changed the flours to add wholemeal flour (which I am not really a fan of, and am afraid will make this too heavy on the stomach). Anyway, it is there : https://www.olivemagazine.com/recipes/family/soda-bread/

  • Orange drizzle cake

    • Agaillard on October 26, 2016

      Nice and easy :) My two French guests loved it and asked for more ;)

  • Griddled asparagus with Berkswell

    • Agaillard on April 09, 2016

      I rated 3.5. Because I really did not need a recipe to pan fry asparagus with olive oïl and sprinkle it with cheese. But this is so good and so simple. One of my favorite ways to eat asparagus :)

  • Smoked salmon with Asian dressing

    • Agaillard on July 17, 2019

      Nice, tasty, and healthy - though it was not necessarily worth writing a recipe for, in my opinion (I would have easily had the idea to combine those by myself!)... Enjoyable nonetheless!! :)
