If you want flavour: seasoning, seasoning and more seasoning! Don’t hold back!

Foodie Eshe January 8, 2015 - 9:04 PM

Excellent advice Ben! It’s all about the Jerk spice. Goodluck 🙂

If you’re making party food and don’t want to be prepping or monitoring the oven all night, try mini burgers by squashing meatballs into patties and baking Pizza Express dough balls, to then cut in half. Add a leaf of lettuce, seasoned red onion, a slice of tomato/gherkin and a slither of stilton for the sophisticated palate and see if anyone guess!

Foodie Eshe January 8, 2015 - 9:11 PM

I do love a mini burger! Light bites are the way forward! Good luck Hannah 🙂

Hey Eshe! Well, my no.1 tip would be to get someone else to do the cooking! But failing that, I’m really after a waffle maker and I’ve seen a hack where this woman put brownie mixture in the waffle maker. Mind. Blown.

my advice would be not to overpower the dish with seasoning but basic touches are a must

kellyjo walters January 13, 2015 - 8:34 AM

sounds trivial but always pre heat the oven

Foodie Eshe January 13, 2015 - 11:04 AM

I agree. Essential for bread!! Goodluck Kelly! 🙂

when baking I always make sure the eggs are room temperature and if I need to use butter and it’s still hard I microwave it for 20 seconds before adding to the flour 🙂

Foodie Eshe January 20, 2015 - 10:58 PM

Definitely you have to get the basic right too. Always sift the flour in from a height too – it helps make the cake (or baked dish) light and fluffy! Good luck Maggie!

To have a ready supply of ginger, mince in a food processor and freeze in ice-cube trays. You don’t even need to peel it! Easy peasy!

Foodie Eshe January 20, 2015 - 10:55 PM

Brilliant idea! I hate it when you go to the fridge and discover the fresh ginger has dried up. Good Luck Lydia!

Freeze any leftover red wine from dinner in ice cube trays as these can be used when you want to add red wine to gravy, sauces etc.

Foodie Eshe January 20, 2015 - 10:54 PM

Yes! Ice cube trays are awesome for all sorts – I always freeze curry pastes in them. Good luck Kim!

Hi eshe! My sister once told me adding anchovies to tomato sauce for pasta makes it taste awesome, and it did! i absolutely love anchovies though so this could be why 🙂 I’m trying this soon!….

Foodie Eshe January 20, 2015 - 10:53 PM

Hey Mairead – nice one – I’ve not tried it myself but I will have to! Good luck!

Helen Linton January 23, 2015 - 3:57 PM

If you dry fry spices before grinding for curry it saves you using too much oil/ghee when cooking the curry as the spice is already cooked

Natalie Crossan January 30, 2015 - 11:29 PM

Always butter the baking tray!!
