Cooking with Kerr – No Risk Roasted Chicken

June 15th, 2013 // 8:00 am @

Chicken has enjoyed a rise in popularity, which is quite healthy, except for the skin. The skin gives chicken its wonderful moist texture, but is full of saturated fat. This technique will give you a great alternative to cook your chicken free from skin, and still moist and delicious.

Roasted Duck Breasts

November 10th, 2010 // 10:04 pm @

Serves 2 Not all ducks are ducklings but then not all ducklings are tender.  We’ve long since decided to treat the breast differently from the less tender leg and thigh meat.  It works wonderfully well so here goes with one “duckling” and three recipes; all of which make wonderful, flavorsome, and nourishing meals for two. […]

October 10th, 2010 // 10:02 pm @

Serves 5-6 Many years ago, whilst serving as the General Manager of the Royal Ascot Hotel I created what we then called the Farmhouse Vegetable Soup with Cream. It was very popular! Since then I’ve continuously upgraded this idea (see F.A.B.I.S. on Page 00). Here is the best to date, but that isn’t the end […]

Chicken Enchiladas

September 10th, 2010 // 9:57 pm @

Serves 4 I know people who will drive for untold miles to eat a specific enchilada. We did, too – all the way to San Antonio, Texas, and it was a triumph.

Serves 10 This is a dessert with a beautiful face.  The colorful fresh fruit arranged symmetrically around the top sparkles with a thin coating of clear melted jelly.  I use apricot preserves to glaze fruit like peaches, nectarines, and kiwi.  Red fruit jelly or preserves highlights strawberries, blackberries and other fruit with a reddish tone.  […]

This jam doesn’t require any cooking and should be stored in the freezer.  It makes a wonderful ingredient for things like smoothies or topping for custards, yogurt, or other fruit.  A bite in the middle of winter will take you right into a warm summer day.  As with all no sugar jams, use a low […]

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

June 10th, 2010 // 9:48 pm @

This recipe looks long and complicated.  It’s not!  The versatile sauce is perfect for spaghetti, pizza or with a little water, can be made into soup.  Double or triple the sauce part of the recipe and freeze the rest for another day.  The vegetables roast while the sauce simmers, and there’s not much else to […]

Baked Salmon in a jacket

May 1st, 2010 // 1:50 am @

Serves 2 This is a fun and fast supper dish providing you have a microwave to bake the potato swiftly. We began this idea as a treat after a long drive in our motor home. We used canned sockeye salmon (with lower sodium content.) but you can just as easily use any canned meat, poultry, […]
