Stir-Fried Chicken With Ketchup
Just chicken, flour, oil, seasoning and regular store-bought ketchup? Okay, I’m doing this. #   ·

Sugar-free tiramisu recipe
Well, except for the rum, which is made from sugar. I mean it’s basically boozy molasses. #   ·

I have journeyed to the soul of chocolate and I bring you good tidings
Very tempted to try this, if I can find a lower-budget method. I make cold-brew coffee all the time, but nothing fancy: just steep it in a cafetiere for 12 hours (I’ve got one on the kitchen counter right now) then keep it in the fridge in a Volvic bottle. #   ·

Momofuku Pork Belly
Deceptively simple; it’s all in the execution. I spot a similar preparation for pork shoulder there, too. Haven’t had pulled pork in ages, over a year it must be… But we’ve got our own thing with the overnight dry rub. It’s good, trust me. #   ·

Why food allergy fakers need to stop
It’s depressing that this is even a thing. No one thinking about the real consequences of their actions. Also, it’s deeply insulting to people who actually have serious allergies or intolerances. [c/o Kottke] #   ·

Aubergine rolls with spinach & ricotta
Made this twice last week, but with a twist: those rolls are a pain in the hole, so we just stirred the roasted aubergine slices right into the spinach and ricotta mixture. Delicious. #   ·

The foodie traveller on … reinventing poutine in Toronto
If these count as poutine, then Abrakebabra taco fries should too. I’m serious! #   ·

Recipe for creamy macaroni and cheese
I think this could do with some tweaking; I doubt it needs a pound of cheese. #   ·

Simple Rules for Healthy Eating
Exactly what it says on the link. #   ·

Jason Wilson: Paleo isn’t a fad diet, it’s an ideology that selectively denies the modern world
“The paleo diet is premised on a false image of stasis and harmony projected from an entirely arbitrary point in the long history of human evolution.” This is as damning a debunk as you’re ever going to find. #   ·

How to Make Caramelized Onions in the Microwave
Although it takes about as long as it would to do them on the stovetop, I’m not sure why I’d bother. Still, they are delicious [c/o Lifehacker]. #   ·

What it’s like to compete in the Chopped kitchen
Decent interview with a past contestant giving a pretty detailed behind-the-scenes at the Food Network’s best show. #   ·

Cauli gosh: Yotam Ottolenghi’s cauliflower recipes
Yes, yes, it’s the cauliflower/Ottolenghi singularity. But just look at those recipes and tell me your mouth isn’t watering. #   ·

Cauliflower pizza crust
Yes, another low-carb recipe for future reference. I don’t think this really needs the ground almonds, though. #   ·

Vietnamese Cauli-Fried Rice
We’ve done fried ‘rice’ with cauliflower a few times, and this looks like a lovely variation to try. The sauce looks fairly simple, too. #   ·

Give Me Five: Hummus with lamb
This is good: only five ingredients (unless you make your own hummus, which is dead easy once you have all the bits you need) to make a proper hearty meal that’s relatively low in fat and carbs. #   ·

A simple recipe for chimichurri
Used this easy recipe the other night to go with sirloin steak and it turned out great, though I think we could use a little less oil next time. #   ·

Mama knows best: how to make a great Persian stew
We’ve done apricots with chicken before, it’s a great combo, so looking forward to trying this dish. #   ·

Slab happy: Yotam Ottolenghi’s meatloaf recipes
Meat with a bunch of stuff in it, baked in a tray? Sounds easy enough to me. (Though I’ll have to watch the carbs-to-protein ratio; I’ve been eating too many carbs as it is.) #   ·

Here are Ireland’s top 10 biscuits, in order of popularity
Definitive proof that the vast majority of Irish society are morons. No Crunch Creams? No Viscounts? Zero credibility. #   ·
