This is a well loved one from my personal files ;)

Also great topped with butter and jam.
1/8 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups cake flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 large eggs
1 cup chilled plain yogurt

Blend 2/3 cup sugar, flour, cake flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and baking soda in large bowl. Add butter, rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Beat eggs in medium bowl. Transfer 1 tablespoon beaten eggs to small bowl; reserve for glaze. Whisk yogurt into remaining eggs in medium bowl. Stir yogurt mixture into dry ingredients. Gather dough into ball.

Gently knead dough on lightly floured surface until dough just holds together, about 6 turns. Roll or pat dough into 1-inch-thick round. Using 2 1/2- to 3-inch-diameter cookie cutter, cut out biscuits. Gather dough s****s, reroll to 1-inch thickness and cut out additional biscuits. Place biscuits on ungreased baking sheet. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover biscuits and reserved egg glaze separately and refrigerate.)

Preheat oven to 400F. Brush biscuits with reserved egg glaze. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake biscuits until puffed and light golden, about 18 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes about 12 biscuits.

These are amazeing!

Mmm! I want some now! :D

Chicken, bacon and cheese baguette:

1 baguette
2 or 3 bits of bacon
A couple of strips of chicken
Cheese of your choice

Slice the cheese and line the baguette with it.
Fry or grill the bacon and the chicken, then place them in the baguette on the cheese.
Put the baguette in the oven or the grill to melt the cheese, then enjoy! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Don't you have to stir it a bit while it's cooking too? Wouldn't it just go solid otherwise?

Has anybody got a good recipe for Speghetti Bolognese please? I don't want one which you add alcohol to and it dosen't have to be fancy. I have two recipes for it which I use but I am looking to try somebody else's recipe for a change. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

2 tbs olive oil
3 large onions, sliced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 cup beef broth
2 (14 ounce) cans peeled and diced tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup apple juice
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

1 Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic until onions are tender. Stir in red bell pepper and saute 2 minutes.
2 Place ground beef in the skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Stir in beef broth, diced tomatoes, wine and tomato paste. Bring to a boil and add celery, bay leaves and Italian seasoning.
3 Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour, or until sauce thickens.

I've made this and it's delicious. I prefer using the wine but there are certain people in my family who can't have alcohol. The apple juice is a nice substitute, believe it or not!

Hi Everyone,


I think a forum 'cookbook' is a great idea for a thread! But maybe we should start with basics. For example: 'How not to drop your dinner on the floor' (Roxy ;) ).

Then we could get to the complicated stuff like toast, boiled eggs etc:-! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

Maybe more seriously:- What about themes, like seasonal or 'national'. (Eg: we've had Xmas and pasta).

Or maybe just by request? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

If possible, I'd like (from scratch) recipes for hummus and pitta bread! (Please, hint, hint). I can't get either here!

Hard Boiled Eggs:

1 egg (or 2, depending on your hunger)
1 small saucepan
As much water as is needed to cover the eggs

Stick eggs into cold water in saucepan, then put onto cooker, and turn cooker on. When the water's boiling, turn heat down to simmer for about four minutes.
Remove eggs.
