Ikea meatballs

Ikea Meatballs

A trip to Ikea is never a quick thing. It always seems to take up the best part of a day and about 10 minutes after getting there, once you’re trapped in a maze of never as comfortable as they…

Beef ragu

Slowcooker Crockpot Beef Ragu

I absolutely adore Italian food but I’m ashamed to say, more than often, I tend to stick to my tried and tested old favourites. The word ‘ragu’ gets bandied about in Italian cooking and going by previous restaurant experience, I…

Bacon, mushroom and blue cheese burger

Bacon, mushroom and blue cheese burger

Here’s another great burger recipe from the ol’ kitchen. I’m not normally the biggest fan of burgers, but recently, I think because of summer, I’ve definitely taken a wee notion for them. Problem is, I’m just a little bit fussy….

Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese

One of my all time favourite comfort foods is spaghetti Bolognese. You just can’t beat it for an instant pick me up. Spaghetti Bolognese isn’t my any means fancy or exotic but it does have a certain something that other…

Hungarian beef goulash

Hungarian beef goulash

A goulash is a rich wholesome stew – consisting of slow cooked meat in a thick tomato sauce, which is often creamy and spiced with paprika. Proper stick-to-the-ribs comfort food. Goulash traditionally comes from Hungary but many other european countries have their own…

Steak, mushroom and Guinness pie

Steak, mushroom and guinness pie

On a cosy night in on a cold blustery night, there is nothing more comforting and satisfying than a huge plate of rich and tasty steak pie, accompanied by heaps of creamy mash to mop up all of the lovely…

Mozzarella stuffed meatballs

Mozzarella stuffed meatballs

Today is a rather special day. Exactly one year ago today I started up The Glasgow Scullery on a whim. Admittedly, I get easily bored with new projects and at best, I thought I would keep it up for a…

Beef Bourguignon

Beef Bourguignon

I remember making Julia Child’s recipe for Beef Bourguignon a couple of years ago. It was absolutely divine but truth be told, it was a wee bitty too consuming and pernickety for my liking. It took the best part of…

Mexican chilli

Mexican chilli

The thing I love about Mexican food is the flavour complexity. I love the way each ingredient hits your taste buds and performs its own stunning one man show before pairing up with its buddies and banding together to put on a…

Malaysian beef curry

Malaysian beef curry

Growing up I was never really a big fan of curries, I think mainly because the only ones I had tried tended to me heavy on the curry powder and not much else. Over the years I’ve discovered that I…

Beef and pearl barley soup

Today I screwed up big time. Scotland basked in glorious sunshine today, and I, the numpty that I am, went to work wearing wooly tights and a cardigan. Bad idea! If that wasn’t enough, guess what I had for dinner?…

Cottage pie

Cottage pie

Cottage pie is a British classic. Essentially consisting of a meaty base, topped with gloriously creamy mashed potato, then baked in the oven. Many argue that cottage and shepherds pie are the same thing but traditionally a cottage pie is…

Lasagne done my way

Lasagna

No two lasagne recipes are the same. Apart from shop bought ones which are universally horrible. Even restaurant lasagne is a bit of a let down if I’m honest. A good lasagne starts in the home, cooked at leisure by…
