Yeah I'm hoping to make a bunch more for x-mas gifts, so I think I'll wait and do a whole batch post!

This one I gave to lisaisab for her birthday, I think she's using it for notes in guitar class Cheesy

Oh, but the book I found in a little goldmine of a second-hand shop in my town in Vermont; every time I go in there I spend like $3 and get so much awesome stuff!! When I saw this I knew right away what I wanted to do with it. And as an added bonus, Lisa's been reading the book out loud to me! XD

sounds amazing Wink a lot of the places I used to get good books from have shut down now, but I'm always on the look-out. I want to get into dyeing pages with tea etc. for a weathered sort of colour & texture, I read about someone using walnut husks to dye their paper too.

but definitely making some for gifts, too. I'll look out for your post Smiley

speak to you soon.

I love making cous cous , make it as it says on the packet but  add a vegetable stock cube to the boiling water aand serve with mixed vegetables ( or dried apricots is gooood)

and ( a bit more expensive) is butternut squash risotto (takes 20 mins in microwave)

250g risotto rice (can use short grain rice just cook it a biit longer)
700ml hot vegetable stock
1 small/medium butternut squash
a big handful of parmesan cheese ( cheddar tastes goooood too)
and mushrooms

- Tip the rice into a large bowl & add 500ml of stock, cover with clingfilm & microwave for 5mins (high)
- peel (easier said than done) and cut the squash into medium chunks
- stir the rice and add the squash and the rest of the stock.
- cover with clingfilm and microwave for another 15mins stirring halfway
- Oh, i forgot to say cook the mushrooms seperately at some point
 - stir in the mushrooms and leave to sit for 2 mins
stir in cheese
top with more cheese
EAT ( The cheese really is amazing)


Oh and i have a recipe here for home-made pot noodle
 - 600ml boiling water
1 vegetable stock cube ( we go through them like crazy in my house)
1 1/2 tbsp medium curry paste
100g of instant egg noodles (e.g. supernoodles)
1 tomato - chopped
4 tbsp frozen peas
1 spring onion - chopped

 - boil a kettle and pour in to large bowl
 - crumble in the stock cube
 - add curry paste and stir
 - add pot noodles, tomatoes , peas and onion ( make sure noodles are covered by water)
 - microwave on high for 3 mins and eat ( put in plastic cups for the pot noodle effect haha)

Oh , and another great recipe (word of mouth)

if you get an eggy custard ( my recipe: 2 eggs, 200ml double cream and 2 tbsp sugar)
dip slices of brioche in (cheaper than normal bread)
fry it in butter until its golden browny and serve with tinned peaches (like eggy bread but sweet?)

And, this post is getting really long, so one more
Baby baked alaskas

1 loaf madeira cake
3 tbsp raspberrie jam
1 tub vannilla ice cream
6 egg whites
250g caster sugar

 - cut the madeira inyo 6 thick slices and cut a circle out of each
 - spread 1/2 tsp jam over each one and put on a baking sheet lined with paper
 - put a scoop of ice cream on each one
 - freeze for an hour
 - heat the oven ro 200 c or 180 c fan oven
 - whisk egg whites to peaks and add sugar in 4 batches , whisking constantly
 - cover each alaska with a thick layer of meringue and make it spiky Cheesy

Grilled peaches: Quick and extremely easy

cut peaches in half remove the seed
spray or brush lightly with oil
sprinkle on cinnamon
grill for about 2 minutes on each side (keep an eye on them, you don't want to burn them) Grin

they taste just like peach pie...mmmmmmm!!

I love your book! It has a nice rugged look to it.

I've been a vegetarian for 2 and a half years now, it was pretty hard in the beginning since I didn't eat a wide variety of vegetables! xD
I don't usually write down many recipes, but I'll give you what I can think of off the top of my head.

Stir fry vegetables (mushrooms, water chestnuts, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, bamboo shoots, snow peas, etc...) and tofu with sesame or peanut sauce.

Fried cabbage. =9

Pan fried tofu in olive oil with chipotle pepper, garlic and ground ginger.

Grilled tofu with barbeque sauce.

Taco salad made with Boca meatless crumbles.

Dress up Ramen noodles by replacing the seasoning packet with vegetable broth (or bouillon cube) add vegetables and tofu, or Quorn meatless "chicken"

A great way to use up leftover pasta is: Brown butter in a pan with minced garlic and dried rosemary. Pan fry noodles in sauce (I like using tortellini for this). Top with shaved parmesan and toasted walnuts, season with salt to taste.

Ants on a log using dried cranberries, almonds, walnuts, pecans, etc.....

Hope this helps!

I love the idea of a homemade recipe book. I also love this chili, it seems like a lot of cans, but it makes a lot of chili. You can also use just one type of bean, fresh tomato (add some salsa to make it juicier), and fresh or frozen corn.

    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 cup chopped carrots
    1 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1 cup chopped red bell pepper
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    1 1/2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms
    1 (28 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes with liquid, chopped
    1 (15 ounce) can black beans, undrained
    1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, undrained
    1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, undrained
    1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 tablespoon cumin
    1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
    1 1/2 tablespoons dried basil
    1/2 tablespoon garlic powder

Directions

    Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir the garlic, onion, and carrots in the pot until tender. Mix in the green bell pepper and red bell pepper. Season with chili powder. Continue cooking 5 minutes, or until peppers are tender.
    Mix the mushrooms into the pot. Stir in the tomatoes with liquid, black beans with liquid, kidney beans with liquid, pinto beans with liquid, and corn. Season with cumin, oregano, basil, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
