How to Cook Bacon: Simple Steps to a Delightful Meal

How to Cook Bacon: Simple Steps to a Delightful Meal

Bacon is one of those foods that really does tickle the taste buds, the rich meat can accompany almost anything from Full English breakfasts, to pasta dishes and much more. But how do you cook bacon to perfection? We are about to show you just how this popular ingredient can be cooked, whether it’s part of a hangover cure or a delicious meal at a dinner party. Sit back, relax and let us take you through the steps to cooking…

Cooking Bacon on a Griddle of Frying Pan

Cooking Bacon on a Griddle of Frying Pan

The classic way of cooking bacon is to use a frying pan or griddle; these are usually the quickest and most effective ways of getting the meat cooked.  If you decide to use this method to cook then you can cook 3-4 rashers in a decent sized frying pan but make sure that each rasher is lying flat on the pan (no overlapping).

If you are using a griddle then we suggest a heavy cast iron griddle is the best choice but any griddle will suffice.

One big tip is that you don’t need oil, the grease from the bacon itself will provide enough fat to cook each rasher in. When the bacon begins to curl up you can then turn the bacon onto the other side in order to get both sides cooked properly. Usually it takes about 8-15 minutes to completely cook bacon using a griddle pan or frying pan.

Top tip: Keep the heat on a low-medium or the bacon may stick to the pan and be hard to remove.

Cooking Bacon in the Oven

The second popular way to cook the salty delight that is bacon, is to oven cook it. It has to be said that this method is much cleaner than frying the bacon as you won’t have that splatter across your counter tops.

Fire up your oven to around 400F and then place the bacon on a middle shelf where the heat is at its highest temperature. The bacon rashers will take less time that frying and you can expect a complete cook in around 10 minutes using this method.

Top tip: To keep things clean make sure that you use aluminium foil to line your backing tray or grill, this will help collect the fat that drips from the bacon and saves you from having to clean the oven tray after use.

Cooking Bacon in the Microwave

Cooking Bacon in the Microwave

This may seem like a strange way to cook bacon, but never neglect your microwave as a form of cooking, it may seem like a bit of a cheat but it really can work wonders for you. Take the bacon rashers and pop them onto a plate, then cover the plate with some paper towels (this is to help control the grease that will squirt out from the bacon when it’s cooking).

By using the microwave as a form of cooking you can literally get your bacon from raw to cooked within about a minute per slice. So if you have 4 rashers placed onto a plate you will need to set the microwave to a high cooking level, and then cook them for around 4 minutes.

Of course, if you want extra crispy bacon then you should add another minute onto the clock which will give you that crunchy texture.

Cooking Bacon under the Grill

Cooking Bacon under the Grill

The final method that we wanted to look at was how to cook bacon under a grill, this method will cook the bacon in about 10 minutes if you flip the rashers over after 5 minutes of cooking. You don’t want to cook on a high heat however, which is something that many people do. You want a medium-high heat which will give you a great tasting result.

Be careful of the grease splatter as you won’t be able to control this and more often than not you are going to be left with a clean-up job at the end of cooking in order to de-grease the grill filaments.

Once cooked, go ahead and enjoy as part of a breakfast, lunch or tea time dish!

How to Cook Asparagus: The Way to a Healthier Life

How to Cook Asparagus: The Way to a Healthier Life

Asparagus is arguably one of the best things you can eat because it contains so many good nutrients. Fresh asparagus can be part of a tasty dish, and will fill you with calcium, iron, vitamins A and C and even potassium. The only downside is that people just don’t know how to cook the fresh vegetable, and even if they do they have no idea on what dish to put it with. Luckily for you guys we are about to show exactly how asparagus can be cooked and what meals it complements.

Preparing the asparagus

Preparing the asparagus

The first and most important point in getting your asparagus ready to cook is cleaning it. This a step overlooked by many people but please don’t neglect this step. Why? Well asparagus is grown around sand, and the very tips of the vegetable have plenty of cracks and crevices where the sand can creep into. If not washed properly you are going to get a crunchy, gritty taste in your mouth.

Run the asparagus under cool water which should remove the sand.

After you have done this you will want to chop the base ends off your asparagus as these aren’t really palatable, unless you like eating tough wood!  Usually a 2-inch chop is enough to cut the unwanted base away.

The Three Healthy Ways to Cook Asparagus

How to Cook Asparagus: The Way to a Healthier Life

Now we get stuck into some of the ways you can cook this delicious vegetable. There are three many healthy ways and they are to steam, boil or to blanch.

Blanching is notably the most popular method as asparagus doesn’t need long to cook. Just get yourself a bowl of water, drop in 2 teaspoons of sea salt and let the veg cook for about 2-3 minutes. You don’t want to overcook the asparagus as it will become limp and lifeless, you want an asparagus that crunches on each bite, so test a spear to make sure it’s ready to come out of the water.

In literally 3 minutes of cooking and about 3 minutes of prep you have some tasty blanched asparagus to tuck into.

Tip: Try serving it with a crispy fresh salad.

The Three Healthy Ways to Cook Asparagus

The second way is to boil the asparagus which takes around 5 minutes but you need to keep a close eye on the spears because this veg is quick cooker and it takes just an extra 30 secs – 1 minute to ruin them.

You don’t need to fill a saucepan to the brim with this method either, you only need enough water to cover the asparagus so a few inches deep with about 2 tablespoons of sea salt is all you need to do the trick.

Tip: Place the asparagus into the saucepan when the water is on a rolling boil, and then cook for 5 minutes once the water returns to a boil.

Finally we come to the steaming option which unlike boiling keeps a lot of the nutrients in the asparagus, and there is also less of a chance you are going to overcook it using this process. Usually you will need to steam them for around 7 minutes depending on what kind of steamer you are using, but just test one spear for crispiness before you serve up.

The Three Healthy Ways to Cook Asparagus

You can also roast and sauté asparagus for different kinds of tastes and finishes. The sauté option will allow you to create the beginning of a fantastic stir fry where you can add onions, peppers, mushrooms and carrots at the same time you add the asparagus. This crunchy little dish can be served anytime of the year and just adds an extra element into how asparagus can be cooked and then served.

Dishes to Add Asparagus Into

Asparagus is a very versatile veg that will go with almost anything, but surprisingly some of the best recipes are soups and chicken dishes. For example you can make a creamy potato and asparagus soup, or you can wrap bacon around your asparagus spears in a chicken and bacon dish.

If you prefer a lighter bite, then you can add asparagus to summer dishes such as fresh salads or Asian spring rolls. The choice is yours!

How to Cook Salmon: 4 Unbeatable Recipes

How to Cook Salmon: 4 Unbeatable Recipes

Salmon is very much one of the favorite types of fish out there, and with so many different ways to cook it, and more ways of complimenting it into certain dishes we wanted to show you 5 different ways that you can enjoy that next piece of Salmon that you guy from the local fishmongers, or grocery store. Take a look at these 4 unbeatable ways we have explained for you below.

First of all, you need to think about how much time you actually have to cook the Salmon, by this we mean; are you in a rush? Or are you preparing a spectacular dinner party where time doesn’t particularly matter?

Oven Cook the Salmon with Aluminium

Oven Cook the Salmon with Aluminium

The simplest way, and the quickest is to oven cook you salmon. With a little olive oil on the top and some sprinkling of black pepper and sea salt you are all ready to get underway.   For each half-an-inch piece of salmon you want to cook it for a good 4 – 6 minutes on each side, and usually you find that the thickest part of most salmons usually averages around the 1-inch mark, so you can have both sides cooked in around 15 minutes.

Watch out for:  The fish becoming less opaque, and use a fork to see if the fish is flaking (key signs the fish is cooked and ready to eat.)

Now you are ready to eat the salmon you can choose some extra dressings, the obvious choice is lemon and fresh herbs that really bring out some of the flavors of the salmon, but you can also try pesto and other herbs and spices that may be in your kitchen cupboard.

Place the Salmon in a Bag

Place the Salmon in a Bag

You would be surprised at just how much this cooking option works (with any meat or fish). Find a sealable bag and place you salmon inside, now start to dress the fish in a marinating sauce. You can use garlic, salt, olive oil, pepper, lemon juice etc.

Once you have done this start moving the bag around so the juices and ingredients all start to spread evenly and the salmon is fully coated for maximum flavour.

You can then add the salmon to a baking tray and then allow the fish to cook thoroughly before serving.

Note: Another option is to put the bag into a refrigerator for around half-an-hour prior to cooking, to allow the juices to really marinate the fish.

Grill Your Salmon

Grill Your Salmon

The third option is to grill your salmon which is another popular choice for many people, this step requires you to preheat your grill, and keep the temperature at a medium to high heat in order to give it those grill lines that run diagonally across the fish.

Prepare your salmon in the usual way with some salt, pepper and oil and then place it diagonally on the grill (for those grill lines). Whereas oven cooking requires about 4-6 minutes per half-an-inch, grilling usually takes 3 – 4 minutes so keep that in mind when you are cooking under a grill. Usually you can cook a 1-inch thick piece of salmon in around 6 – 8 minutes (don’t overcook it).

To make sure its cooked, look for that flakiness and make sure that the salmon I less opaque and more firm.

Watch out for: Make sure your grill grate is well oiled as the salmon can easily stick to this and ruin your presentation.

After grilling the salmon you can add yourself some lemon juice, and the serve it with herbs, broccoli or just eat it on its own as it came out of the grill…the choice really is yours!

Additional Tip: Pan Searing your Salmon

Pan Searing your Salmon

One method not used much is pan-searing, which can take as little as 6 minutes.  All you need to do here is coat a frying pan in cooking spray or oil and then increase the heat to a medium level so its not smoking but it is hot.

Add your salmon to the pan and then cook on both sides for 3 minutes. Again, you will need to check the salmon can flake in the center when you break it with a fork, and it should no longer be translucent to the eye.

Tip: Use a spatula to pick the salmon us as tongs or any other kitchen tool will break it (especially if you need a good presentation).

How to Cook Quinoa The Best Way: Our Secret Tips

How to Cook Quinoa The Best Way: Our Secret Tips

If you are not a fan of white rice or couscous then Quinoa could be the alternative you have been looking for, but take note that you need to cook it to perfection in order to benefit from its fluffy and light texture. If you have already cooked couscous or rice before then you are half way there to getting the consistency right for Quinoa but we are going to give you a little helping hand by showing you some quick and effective tips to cooking it the best way.

How to Cook Quinoa

Firstly the process of actually cooking Quinoa is straight forward, so here is the recipe that you will need to follow:

  • 1 cupful of Quinoa
  • 2 cupful’s of water

Put a saucepan onto your hob and turn up the heat to medium and add the 3 cups mentioned above to the pan. You want to keep them on a rolling low boil and cover the saucepan with a lid so the Qunoa is allowed to simmer. After about 15 minutes lift the lid and just check to see how things are going, what you want to see is most of the liquid being absorbed into the Quino, if there is still quite a bit of liquid leave the dish to simmer for another 5 minutes.

Once cooked, take the saucepan of the heat and then fluff the Quinoa with a fork, it should be light a fluffy and enough for a good 3 servings (or 3 cupfuls).

Useful Tips for Quinoa

Using Quinoa in the same way can get boring, just like any other food type really. What you want to do is look for new ways you can enjoy this food, but bring out different tastes of this nutty delicacy.

Tip 1: Toast Them

Toast Them

It may sound absurd but you can add a lot of flavour to Quinoa just by toasting it in a skillet and adding some oil. Do this for about 5 minutes so the uncooked Quinoa becomes a golden bronze color and then add it to the boiling water as you normally would (per our instructions above).  Notice the taste difference?

Tip 2: Alternatives to Water

Alternatives to Water

You don’t have to cook Quinoa in water, instead look for alternatives such as chicken stock or beef stock cubes that can give a little pizaz to the overall taste. Other flavors can include vegetable broths or mushroom broths, anything to add a little bit more excitement into your dish. Give it a try you won’t be disappointed.

Tip 3: It’s Not Just For Lunch

Alternatives to Water

Oh no, you can actually use Quinoa to make a really tasty breakfast cereal, much like you would with oats. By adding aromatic spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger you can really bring out the best from Quinoa and enjoy it as your first meal of the day.

Tip 4: Quinoa Lasagne Anyone?

Quinoa Lasagne Anyone?

If you are a vegetarian then have you ever thought of a quinoa packed lasagne instead of meat-free or noodles? You can add cheese, herbs, vegetables and Quinoa to each layer of your lasagne and even thought it sounds stodgy it’s actually a very low calorie dish, and tasty too, Just give it a go and see what you think.

Tip 5: Keep an Eye on the Time

Keep an Eye on the Time

This may sound like an obvious pointer but take it from us, it’s the most important because of the way Quinoa cooks. Usually if you follow the 2 cups of water and 1 cup of Quinoa instructions it takes 15-20 minutes to cook on the correct heat, but don’t just take that for granted. Always lift the lid to make sure that your Quinoa isn’t drying out too much, or the water isn’t being absorbed as quickly as you need it to.

Cooking Quinoa can take some practice, but like anything, the more you do it the better you are going to become by learning from your previous attempts. Soon enough you will be cooking the perfect Quinoa dish before you realize it.

7 Easy Steps To a Stunning Outdoor Kitchen

There is no limit to cooking when you have got an awe-inspiring outdoor kitchen and no fear of experimentation when the design is spectacular but smart. In older days, outdoor cooking was only limited to barbecuing and serving cold sodas, but in the present it is much more than that. You can make anything from shakes to pizzas and whatnot! Here today, we will get you to know with all the prerequisites of designing/re-modelling your own outdoor kitchen.

We have divided the entire procedure into easy stages for you to have your dream outdoor kitchen:

ambience2

1. Kitchen Site

The first thing that will come to your mind is where to establish your outdoor kitchen. Remember these points before choosing your sweet-spot:

  • It could be near the main house to allow easy supplies of gas and electricity
  • If you’re not worried about the utility supplies, then feel free to find one nice spot near the pool, under the sun in a shade
  • You could also set it up on the terrace if it is big enough to accommodate the kitchen and still have space left over to move around

2. Making the measurements

This is the most important part of planning, as it will be the deciding factor of how stunning your kitchen is going to look. So take your time, talk to your partner and draw a rough layout of how to assemble the kitchen so as to allow easy flow of food and utensils while and after cooking, and also take risk mitigation measures into account while laying down the plan.

3. Allotting the cooking space

Allot an open space for cooking if possible, as you won’t be using any chimney or smokestack. Also, checkout the typical arrangements of appliances and sinks which increase the efficiency of the kitchen while still upholding its beauty.

4. Putting up the decks

A wooden or marble flooring would not only make the kitchen look more sophisticated but also keep everything at level on an uneven ground like that of a lawn or backyard. If you live in a cold climate then you could add extra elevation to your kitchen by adding some hefty reinforcements so the steps are semi-covered in the snow adding more beauty to it, obviously, if it fits within your budget. Be open to experimentation!

5. Assembling all the appliances

Make sure that your kitchen has all the essential appliances that cover all your fancy cooking needs but be wary with things that you don’t need, for instance, do you really need that tandoor grill? Your kitchen should have just the right number of essential, nothing extra and nothing less.

6. Setting up entertainment sources and lighting

This is the most fun part about having an outdoor kitchen, as this is what transforms your kitchen from a sweet get-together place to a total party frenzy!

  • You could add some feel-good ambiance and vibe by putting some designer lighting using various LEDs and dim-lit bulbs or make it rocking with a nice home theater system or just add a big screen TV with additional speakers at specific places to add surround sound.
  • You could also set up a minibar with a neat fridge rigged with all the thirst-quenchers and snacks

a,bience

7. Make it amazing with a Shed

You should add a top to your kitchen. Do not worry, it will still feel outdoor and it won’t make it like a shell. Instead, it will save you from those sudden showers and winds and give you ample time to pack up your stuff and head into your home.

Also, do not forget to use leftover space, if any, as you could add fenced pathways, a little garden and all that jazz. Final suggestion is that keep the kitchen loaded but a little loose to allow a free ventilation passage and prefer sturdy and professional appliances/decorations over cheap ones as you will be using it for at least years if not decades.

So why wait? Let’s start experimenting right now!
