I live near a lot of grocery stores. When I get out of the tube, to the left on the corner is a Sainsbury local and to the right on the corner is a Tesco metro. Just a short walk away from that is a full sized Waitrose – but before I even get to that there are a few small independent market and a new organic market. And the truth is, I go to all of them. If I need something quick I’ll go near the tube. If I want a proper shop I’ll go to Waitrose. And if I’m feeling curious, then the organic market. It’s a little bit of overkill, but when I can’t find an ingredient at one place, it helps to have so many others.
Balancing the vegetables with noodles and the flavourful sauce is the success of this stunning dish. Stir fries are incredibly quick way to cook and the short time means all the ingredients retain most of their flavour, texture and nutrients. The idea is to constantly toss the ingredients so they stir fry rather than fry. You can vary the vegetables, but I found these truly bring out the ethnic chow mein flavour. Enjoy
This succulent Grilled Chili Lime Shrimp with Fresh Salsa is easy to make. Just slice an avocado, top with fresh salsa, and add some grilled chili lime shrimp. Mild and creamy avocado contrasts perfectly with piquant salsa and spicy shrimp.
Empire Biscuits, also known as Imperial Biscuits, German Biscuits or Double Shortbread, are sandwich cookies popular in UK, particularly Scotland. It is very similar to a linzer cookie, being formed by sandwiching 2 shortbread cookies together with raspberry jam. Nothing out of the ordinary till here, but then the cookie is glazed with a simple sugar glaze and decorated with half of glace cherry and that brings these cookies out of anonymity. Honestly, these biscuits shook my world the other day when I made them. I wasn’t expecting them to be this delicious, I thought they would turn out good, but nothing special and they blew me away.
