Stir Fry is one of my all time favorite meals to make and meals to eat. It’s the ultimate therapy for me – lots of chopping, washing, and prepping. Perfect to fill my mind space with nothing but food, and perfect to fill my tummy space when finished cooking. It’s a straight forward meal that can be adapted to fit your preferences.
First, Marinate the chicken with the stir fry sauce. Then cook all the veggies individually. Next cook the chicken. When everything is cooked, combine and EAT.

Much of the American appetite for sweet rolls and cakes comes from the German and Dutch settlements in New York, New Jersey and Delaware. Colonial cooks made fruity, buttery breakfast or coffee cakes from recipes that vary only slightly from methods used in the twentieth century. They also share some of the responsibility for the national zest for doughnuts.
Scandinavians were even more responsible than anyone else for making America as coffee-break-conscious as it is, and for perfecting the kind of food that goes well with coffee. German women had already brought the Kaffeeklatsch to their frontier communities, but it was in the Scandinavian kitchens where there was always a pot brewing on the back of the stove and where hospitality and coffee became synonymous.The term “coffee klatch” became part of the language and its original meaning–a moment that combined gossip with coffee drinking–was changed to define the American version…

We all know Stacey’s mum makes a mean omelette (and very little else) in Gavin and Stacey. A really easy meal centre for a midweek meal but a Spanish Omelette is a simple meal centre for the whole family. It only takes half an hour and can be thrown together. You can chop and change the fillings but this one is my favourite.
To feed 4-6 you will need:
Chop the onion. Peel, wash and thinly slice the potatoes. Place both in a medium sized frying pan at least an inch deep. Pour over a good glug of oil and seasons liberally with ground black pepper.
Over a medium to high heat, sauté the potatoes…
