Cheesy Topped Potatoes and Peppers - Panasonic CS894S Steam Oven

Having had my Panasonic Steam Combination Oven a few weeks now I've been busy experimenting with the steam function.  Of course it's not necessary to have a steam oven to make this recipe since you could par-boil the potatoes and cook in a regular oven.  But the Panasonic Steam Oven really does make life easier as everything is done in the one oven, so there's far less washing up, which can only be a good thing!


You can read my review of the Panasonic NN-CS894S for more information.

My Cheesy Topped Potatoes and Peppers are tasty enough on their own or served as side dish.

Hungry Healthy Happy - Book Review

I'm so pleased to have been asked to review this book; Dannii is a fellow blogger friend that I really admire.  She is the award-winning author of Hungry Healthy Happy, a blog about healthy eating, exercise and weight loss.  Her personal journey with weight loss began when, in her mid-twenties, she found herself overweight and suffering with health problems as a direct result.  But Dannii decided to reclaim her health and change the way she related to food.

By cooking home-cooked meals from scratch and combined with regular exercise Dannii lost 98 lb (7 stone) and reached her goal weight in just three years.


Before this Dannii says she had mainly survived on store-bought ready meals and takeaways but now started cooking healthy, home-cooked meals discovering a passion for cooking in the process.  Her new-found love of cooking and increased awareness of what she was putting into her body. She has since been maintaining a healthy lifestyle by developing nutritious versions of her favourite meals and sharing them on her blog.

Copper Kitchen Gadgets from Stellar Cookware

Check out these stunning copper kitchen gadgets from Stellar Cookware.  Reminiscent of the Victorian kitchen but with a modern twist.  Engineered from zinc alloy composite with a food safe finish which means the copper will not tarnish or lose it's sheen.

The collection includes this lovely Garlic Crusher which I've found does the job perfectly.


The Y-Peeler is a gadget that years ago I never used to think was necessary as surely a small knife does the same job?  But, I've since discovered they are most definitely necessary and even life changing!

Vegetarian Stew with Peppers and Cannellini Beans - ThermoCook Recipe

An easy to make, vibrant vegetable stew packed full of flavour.  The addition of cannellini beans makes this a filling meal especially if served fresh crusty bread for dipping and mopping.   Of course you don't have to own a ThermoCook to make this recipe, but it does make it extra simple to make and really does cook stews perfectly.


All stews taste even better if reheated to following day making this the perfect quick mid week meal or to take to work for a tasty lunch; just heat it up in a microwave.
Of course the ThermoCook can chop everything but since we want chunks of vegetables rather than finely chopped for this recipe it's better to cut them by hand.

Review - Panasonic Steam Combination Microwave NN-CS894S

I'm super excited to have been asked to review the Panasonic NN-CS894S Combination Steam Microwave Oven.  Oh yes, this is one very stylish, family sized microwave oven with Microwave, Convection, Grill and Steam functions.  I've used this oven many times over Christmas and New Year more than any other combination oven I've ever had; I truly love it.  I found it fantastic for entertaining as it means I effectively have the space of two ovens when used along with my main oven.


Flatbed means no turntable:
In my opinion this is far better than the usual turntable as the large flatbed gives you a much larger cooking space and also means you can cook two dishes at the same time since there are 3 shelf positions plus you can use the base of the oven too.  There's none of the usual bother when you want to use your own dishes and find they are too large to turn around on the turntable since it doesn't have one!
