Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Dessert Cook-a-Long

Sunday April 18th at 4-5.45pm

I have listened to your feedback. You want to learn how to make more snacks, chicken dishes and easy meals!  
So, for our next Cook-a-Long, I have planned a delicious variety of dishes that you can eat throughout the day, taste delicious and are healthy, as well as easy to make.
 
 We will be making: –

  1. Granola – can be eaten for breakfast, as a snack, on its own and is delicious with yoghurt and berries.
  2. Roasted Vegetable & Herb Salad with optional feta – Whenever I serve this at dinner parties (remember those???) I always gets lots of compliments. It’s dark, sweet, fresh, creamy, salty, and colourful all in one! It can be a main meal or a side dish
  3. Italian Olive & Herb Chicken – Super quick and simple, the kind of recipe we all need. If you are vegetarian – substitute the chicken for cauliflower florets   
  4. Apple & Honey Muffins – big chunks of sweet apple encased in cake – what more could you want? They freeze brilliantly and every mouthful tastes delicious

Hope to ‘see you’ on Sunday 18th April 4-5.45 (ish) UK Time
Thanks,
Judianne

Below is some feedback from the last one…..

Hi Judianne, 
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday’s cook-a-long! I have cooked lots of your recipes previously after following you on Instagram and have always been very impressed. Having never done a cook-along I didn’t know what to expect but your set up & instructions were brilliant and the food all tasted amazing! My 5 year old son loved the kale crisps – something I never thought I would say! 
We will definitely be signing up again! 
Thank you again,
Laura  

Cookery Lessons & Cook-a-Longs

I teach individuals, small and large groups of people to cook.
I teach children, adults, families, siblings, colleagues, grandparents and friends.  I run zoom classes, in person classes and demonstrations (when allowed!)

I also run monthly Sunday cook-a-longs where anyone can sign up and join a live class. See front page for the next one….

‘Duck’ and Pomegranate Salad

Looking for a filling and nutritious Salad? This salad is the perfect way to use up leftover Duck (Turkey) from the Fake Duck (Turkey) Pancakes by turning them into a delicious sweet and tart salad.

Turkey is a low fat source of protein, which we need for a healthy immune system. The pomegranate is a good source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K.

Israeli Salad

This salad is found all over Israel. It’s called Salat Katzutz (Chopped salad) and is served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, with shawarma, falafel etc…

Just like Jewish Chicken Soup, many of us make it differently. I make mine with just tomato, cucumber & lettuce. When the kids are around it’s with tomato, cucumber & gherkins, for a dinner party I’d probably add parsley & red onion. Either way its super simple, delicious and goes with everything…well almost!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Why do Chicken Nuggets always seem to be a success? I think because the chicken is moist and flavoursome and the crispy breadcrumbs just taste so good.

These chicken nuggets are baked not fried so they contain less fat than usual chicken nuggets. The mayonnaise keeps them moist whilst crispening up the breadcrumbs. The paprika, garlic and herbs add flavour and the seseame and flax seeds and boost the health benefits.

I guess that’s why these are always a success!

If you’re making them for passover – just swap the breadcrumbs for Matzo Meal

Chocolate Bark

Make your chocolate taste exactly the way you love!
Everyone in our family likes different flavours, so I add them all and everyone can have the one they like the best.

My favourites are the passion fruit and the salt

Za’atar Chicken with Caramelised Onion & Garlic

We all love Za’atar and my Za’atar plaice with harissa recipe is a flavour we all love but we don’t all love fish so much, so I have adapted it for my meat eaters.

Now everyone is happy (even my vegan who can have a Cauliflower & Chick Pea version) It’s seriously easy and the vegetables just cook away absorbing the chicken flavours.

Video Recipe coming very soon….

Pesach Recipes

If you are looking for Pesach recipes, click on Pesach Recipes and you will find lots. There is also a meal plan for the whole 8 days

PLEASE NOTE – many do contain kitniyot – so if you avoid kitniyot, just avoid those. The occasional recipe…such as the falafel does use flour – wherever you see flour – just substitute for the same quantity of matzo meal. The Banana and Blueberry Cake contains Baking powder – just leave it out.

Vegetarian Bolognese

This is the text I wrote on my Beef Bolognese recipe….

I laughed out loud in the supermarket last week….. Little boy to mum…”Who doesn’t love bacon?” She replied “Vegans”
So……. Who doesn’t love Spaghetti Bolognaise? 😉

Well….vegans need worry no more, as here is my vegan Bolognese recipe.

This Bolognese is made with veggie mince and tomatoes, carrots, onions and mushrooms, so contains lots of veggies and it freezes brilliantly too.

Vegetable Spring Rolls

When you wrap something up in pastry it just tastes so good doesn’t it?

So for these Spring Rolls I have taken lots of delicious crunchy vegetables, added some ginger, garlic, sesame and soy and then wrapped them up in pastry!

If you have an air fryer….spray them with oil and pop them into a preheated air fryer for 10-20 mins at 180. Turn half way and you will LOVE THE RESULTS!

If you don’t have an air fryer, spray or brush them with oil, then bake at 180 degrees for about 35 mins. They won’t be as crispy but will still be delicious. Or you can shallow fry them for about 5 mins – its not the healthiest way to cook them but choose the method that works best for you.

Either way, you’re eating lots of delicious vegetables that are providing you with lots of vitamins

If you enjoy these as much as we do, I’d love it if you could leave a comment below.

Thanks,

Judianne
