    Scallops & Spinach Doria

    The other day I bought a bag of Frozen Scallops that was on special. Fresh Scallops are quite expensive where I live and I rarely buy them, but I tend to jump at Frozen Scallops on special.

    If you have been to Japan, you might have tried a popular dish called ‘Omu-rice’ (Omelette Rice). It is hugely popular, my children loved it when they were young and they still do, but it is actually not quick & easy to prepare for a whole family. I often made this easy version. It tastes …

    ‘Takikomigohan’ is a Japanese dish of Rice that is cooked with other ingredients and seasonings.

    Mexican Chicken Baked Rice

    Today I tried to make my ‘Chicken & Chorizo Baked Rice’ into Mexican flavour. I basically added the same Spices that I use to cook ‘Chilli Con Carne’. I didn’t add Chorizo today, but you can add it. The brilliant addition to this dish is Cheese. I used ‘Cheese Mix for Baking’, that is a …
