Chicken Bouillabaisse Recipe

Chicken and potatoes cooked in a rich sweet garlic and tomato sauce along with saffron, Pernod, white wine, fennel seeds and rosemary.  Totally delicious and easy to make too as it's all cooked in one pot. 
 Oh yes this is now in my top five dinners of all dinners and has to be made again soon.
After seeing Ina Garten cook this the other night the Food Network TV show 'Back to Basics', it had to made there and then.
I believe this is usually made with fish and served with rouille (garlicky mayonnaise).  Because of my rush to make it I didn't have enough garlic to make the roullie so just served it with nice crusty bread.
According to Wikipedia, Bouillabaisse is a traditional Proven├žal fish stew originating from the port city of Marseille.

Rosemary and Sea Salt Focaccia - Easy to Make

I came across this fantastic recipe by Lorraine Pascale in her book Baking Made Easy and it has to be said - this was easy!  Foccacia is an Italian flat bread and you can vary the topping to suit your taste - for example  Caramelised Red Onion or Cheese would be good!
As you're probably already aware, I don't do baking!  But this certainly turned out rather nice indeed.  Of course a good baking tray is vital and the Eazistore I reviewed a while back is still looking like new.

Chicken Roasted with Lemon and Garlic - Quick Midweek Meal Idea

A simple roast chicken becomes something special when it's roasted with lemon and garlic the perfect combination.  But with the addition of a few herbs to the baking dish, you have a perfectly delicious midweek meal that can be conjured up in less than an hour from start to finish! 
 You can of course, use chicken portions (skin on) if you can't be fussed with cutting a chicken in half or simply want to feed more than two greedy people.

Chicken with Tarragon and Marsala Mushroom Sauce


 Now, I've made Tarragon sauce before, but this is my best recipe yet.
Yes, this is the bees knees of Tarragon sauce recipes!
  The sauce was an experiment and I'd say the use of Marsala instead of the usual white wine really makes this recipe.
Of course you can serve more than two - just double the recipe ingredients for four.
 Marsala wine is available in any good supermarket and can be used in many other recipes.  If you can't get it, or simply don't want to buy it, just use a sweet white wine instead.  The sauce, I'm sure will still be delicious - just not as good as this was - sorry!
