A basic MSMQ backed WCF server and client
Creating a simple pair of apps that talk to each other using WCF over Microsoft Message Queueing. It might be a bit retro, but it's still out there!
Braised beef shin with thyme dumplings
Beef shin is a cheaper cut that needs a long and slow cook to get the most out of it, but after it's had the time, the result is well worth the wait!
My take on beef stroganoff, made as a mushroom free dish, with Sirloin steak as a happy medium between fillet and rump
Sea Bass parcels with asian flavours
This recipe is based on one by Donal Skehan, tweaked to account for what I had in the fridge and rustled up solely on the desire to use some Sea Bass fillets I had, but not to go for my usual 'go to' choice of serving it with a fresh mango salsa. It also has the bonus of being super quick to cook and the parcels keep the amount of washing up down, win/win!
Breakfast Pizza Bagel
Another quick breakfast snack, this one using up what's left over in the cupboard and fridge
Shepherds Pie - with roast lamb
The photo isn't a particularly good one, though it is hard to make melted cheese on top of mashed potato look attractive, unless you've got professional lighting and a photographer. Do trust me though, this tasted delicious - what's not to love though, lamb, onion gravy, mashed potato and cheese
