Grilled Lemonade

That’s right, you read it – grilled lemonade.  While it may initially sound totally impossible, you’ll soon see that not only is it possible – it is THE way to drink fresh lemonade.  Fresh lemonade has a delicious mix of sweet and sour that provides a cool, crisp freshness on a hot day.  By dipping…

Sweetcorn and Red Pepper Cornbread

Cornbread!  So named for the cornmeal that gives it that vibrant orange colour.  Not a true bread, in the sense that it isn’t a dough so much as a better, but it serves some very important purposes.  It also comes together far quicker, taking only about 40 minutes from start to finish!  Perfect for mopping…

Lollipop Buffalo Wings

I didn’t even realise buffalo could fly!  *pause for applause…3…2…1 I grew up hearing about buffalo wings on US films and TV, but being from a sleepy countryside town in Norfolk it was never really on the menu.  Eventually through the marvels of the internet and the developing presence of global cuisine in Britain I…

Bizarrely, something about the banana peel in…

BBQ Cola Chicken

Introduction Cola truly is a versatile drink, lending itself to anything from Mint-based explosions to street cleaning.  Did you know, however, that it also creates one of the easiest, tastiest, stickiest BBQ sauces you could make at home?  You do now. Funnily enough, this recipe works with Diet Cola, despite its lack of sugar.  Exactly why it…

The Guesscipe Burger

Introduction We’re a little wary about the implication that this is some signature dish that we can claim – when it comes to the burger world, just about everything has been done.  Furthermore, we maintain our stance that all guesscipes can/should be adapted.  However, without simply listing all the ingredients in the title (or coming up with…
