3-Bean Chicken Stew with cous-cous
About this Cook
I am a travelling English teacher and food lover. Cooking is a way of relaxation for me and I love experimenting with both new recipes and my own inventions.
My favorite things to cook
I am not particular about the food I like and love to try everything from ethnic meals to traditional favourites. My favourite recipes are those that create surprising and complex flavours in a short time. I am especially interested in soups, pastas and chicken dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hungarian meals made by my grandma will always be among my favourites and I love the traditional dishes cooked on an open fire.
My cooking triumphs
Following and tweeking recipes is easy. My biggest triumphs come from tasty meals I dream up and create myself.
My cooking tragedies
Marinating lemon chicken for too long. Ick!

Pasta with Broccoli and Bacon
Added sundried tomatoes and a sundried tomato stir-through sauce instead of the spaghetti sauce. It deserves a star just for how pretty the pasta looks when you drain it with the broccoli.

Zucchini Mediterranean Style
This is a nice, summery meal. I didn't want it to be so mushy, so instead of a can of tomatoes I used chopped real tomatoes which cooked down nicely but not into complete liquid. Used much greater amounts and variety of dried herbs and chucked in a few black olives for good measure. I think this would be really good with a splash of white wine in the sauce. Actually, I wish I had a chilled glass of wine to go with it, it's one of those dishes!

Penne with Red Pepper Sauce and Broccoli
Really nice and simple if you don't bother to blend everything. I used finely chopped jarred peppers and just sauted all the ingredients before mixing with the pasta. Fast and tasty for a mid-week meal.
