Walnuts | In the Pantry

By Erin Alderson When it comes to ingredients in your kitchen, it can be easy to forget that non-produce items come with ‘best by’ dates. I’ve witnessed many a spice cabinets with bottles dating back years, if not decades. Olive oil that should went rancid ages ago. And nuts that are questionable at best.
And so, I’m working on a series based around the notion that all ingredients in your kitchen should be treated as if it were kale or tomatoes. Fresh is best and care needs to go into all ingredients you keep on hand. Knowing how to store and use in a …read more

Crispy Garlic Breadcrumb Chicken – No Fry, Not Dry, Must Try

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Trying to convert a fried recipe into a baked one is usually a disappointing exercise in futility, but this crispy garlic breadcrumb chicken turned out to be a very enjoyable exception. While not exactly the same as a pan-fried, breaded cutlet, if you want to eat tender, flavorful chicken with lots of crispy, crunchy bits, then this significantly less-messy method is for you. One of the keys to this technique is to use panko breadcrumbs, which are much larger, and more jagged than regular, fine breadcrumbs. If you can’t find them, you can easily make you own. Just pulse chunks …read more

Bring out the Branston!

I love a good pickle, and Branston Pickle has always featured on our family table here at Chez Lavender and Lovage.

I always add a dollop of Branston Pickle to my curries, stews and …read more

Madagascan bean stew

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche A simple but super tasty vegan bean stew made entirely in an ActiFry!

I love to play around with different cuisines – Italian, Tex-Mex, Indian, Chinese, Greek… but Madagascan cuisine is definitely new to me! So when Tefal asked me to try out this Madagascan bean stew in their ActiFry Genius* air fryer, I was really excited to dip my toe into the Madagascan water (not literally, though that would be pretty amazing too).
I’ve never been to Madagascar, so I can’t vouch for the authenticity of this recipe, but as usual, I’m far more concerned with how something tastes than how …read more

Mexican Chocolate Lava Cake [Sponsored Post]

By Irvin This Mexican Chocolate Lava Cake is a twist on the classic with a touch of cinnamon & cayenne. It comes out perfect because it’s made in a pressure cooker! (Jump directly to the recipe.)

This post was sponsored by The Crock-Pot® Brand. I was compensated for this post and for developing the recipe. However, all opinions below are completely my own.
The chocolate lava cake gets a bad rap. It’s one of those desserts that you see everywhere, from fine dining establishments to chain restaurants. Pastry chefs often groan at the idea of putting it in on the menu, but the general …read more

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries + Tutorial {Gluten-Free, Paleo, Whole 30, Vegan}

By Bintu Folks, I am obsessed with my air fryer recently. It’s giving me delicious comfort foods I normally steer clear of because of its high calorie content. The air fryer is a little magic machine that uses 2 tbsp of oil or cooking spray max, a high powered fan and crispy and crunchy food comes out every single time. It really is amaaaaaaaaaazing.
Recently I was working in the garden and feeling a bit peckish.

Farro Risotto with Walnut Cream and Roasted Butternut Squash

By Erin Alderson Post sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill. See below for more details.
There’s nothing quite like a comforting bowl of risotto. There are endless seasonal flavors and thanks to a myriad of whole grains, many bases you can use. A creamy, vegan risotto is within reach thanks to help from a bit of farro and an easy walnut cream sauce.

Whole Grain Risottos

Traditionally, risottos are made with arborio rice. This variety of rice has a high level of starch which translates into a creamy risotto everyone knows and loves. However, it’s rare I have arborio rice on hand. This has led to a …read more

Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

By Grace Hall Pumpkin season is well underway and I’m sure I’m not the only one whose Facebook timeline is full of photos of friends and family visiting pumpkin patches with their children! Shops and cafes are full of pumpkin spice everything, so I thought I’d leap on the bandwagon with these fun pumpkin spice energy bites.

I have to admit, until last year I didn’t actually know what pumpkin spice was. It wasn’t until a reader asked me what on earth our English ‘mixed spice’ is that I did a little research and discovered that it is pretty much the same spice mix …read more

Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings with Parmesan {Gluten-Free, Low Carb, Keto}

By Bintu Chicken wings have been more or less off limits in my book. Something that OH and friends would indulge in on when watching a really important match, or the family would eat on a special occasion, but otherwise far too unhealthy to be served up on a regular basis. But then the air fryer came into our lives and changed all that.
Now I can whip up all sorts of formerly blacklisted foods and enjoy them guilt free.
