Watercress-Walnut Pesto, Secret Weapon for Pizza or Pasta

I love this recipe. Who needs expensive pine nuts to make pesto anyway?

Slow Cooker Pasilla Pulled Chicken

Made this the other night, it was delicious. I adore the subtle spice the pasilla peppers give to the chicken. For a quick packed lunch I mixed it with some mayonnaise and made a kind of Mexican "Coronation Chicken" sandwich - it rocked!

Ideas for dinner with in-laws

I think they give it a nuttiness that complements the cauliflower nicely. The milk in the recipe harmonizes everything so even if you don't like parnips on their own you may like them in this.

I like the idea of roasting it whole. And the greens. Caulifower is a big favourite in our house. This Chow recipe is in regular rotation, it's a pseudo potato mash that goes really well with lamb (another thing the in-laws don't like alas);

That sounds delicious, never thought of adding cilantro to rice like that. We often make "spanish rice", cooking tomato sauce and onion into the rice, but I would love to try another way. I imagine it would be a great burrito filling too. Yes to al pastor tacos!

Wow, these sound amazing! How do you make your cilantro rice? I like how pappardelle bolognese and pulled pork sliders are elegant versions of the classic, crowd-pleasing spaghetti bolognese and hamburger.

It's bright and sunny here (in San Francisco). I love the idea of BBQ chicken and a cold potato salad with a side of greens. Thanks melpy!

Palm oil; danger to environment

I recently learned that Nutella, one of my favourite treats is made with palm oil, the harvest of which is destroying the rainforest. Luckily Loacker exists as an ecologically healthy alternative, but it will be hard to order a sweet crepe without the lovely Nutella. Is anyone else just learning about the impact of palm oil for the first time? Does anyone know what other foods contain palm oil?

Ideas for dinner with in-laws

My in-laws are staying with us this weekend and I'd like to make something to delight their taste buds. They are suspicious of most fish, so no barbequed sardines or clam pasta for them. They like BBQed meat and chicken. MIL is allergic to avocados. Any ideas are welcome. Thank you!

Thanks iL Divo, these look so yummy. Maybe I'll try a "cinnamon toast" version with butter, cinnamon and sugar on my naan.

Saag with Tofu

Lovely and fresh. Much better than frozen ready meals, and most take-aways. I used jalapenos (no serranos available) and it wasn't hot enough, so I added Sriacha.

Parsnip and Cauliflower Purée

We made this to go with seared lamp chops, and were amazed at how creamy and delicious it is. It tastes like there's a whole stick of butter in it. Our baby also loves it - plus it's a cunning way to sneak in vegetables. ;-)
