Posh Bubble and Squeak and the New Radiant Range from Judge

I love bubble and squeak but since it requires leftover potatoes and greens we hardly ever have it; why? Because being greedy we never have 'leftovers' but if you do happen to have any leftover cooked potatoes then this is a great way to use them up.

Just throw the pancetta or bacon into a pan; no need to add oil and cook until crispy then remove and set aside.  Add the cooked potatoes to the pan along with a teaspoon or two of smoked paprika and cook until heated through.
Add the bacon back in along with a handful of spinach (for good health ๐Ÿ˜Š) and cook until it wilts. Season with black pepper and serve straight away with a nice fried egg; free range of course.

Apart from a quick lunch it was actually just a was a good excuse to try out my shiny new chefs pan from the Radiant Range by Judge Cookware!

About the new Radiant Range from Judge:
New Judge Radiant benefits from Teflon’s very latest Radiance non-stick surface which is PFOA free. This is a 3 layer non-stick which uniquely integrates ferrous particles which accelerate heat transfer through the non-stick layer, creating a very even heat throughout the pan.

Induction Granite Enamel Ovenware from Judge - Review

I must tell you about my two latest kitchen lovelies both from Judge Cookware; the Induction Granite Enamel Ovenware range.

First up is this Induction Granite Enamel Bake Pan (JS06) which is made from heavy grade steel with an enamel coating.  As it doesn't claim to be non-stick I have to be honest wondered if it would be up to the job of turning out perfect roast potatoes, but as you can see it was and my roasties didn't stick at all. Happy me ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Roast Potatoes in Enamel Dish from Judge Cookware

It's a good size too at 32cm x 19cm although there are larger versions available.  A chicken fits in nicely as does a joint of beef.  Of course and can be used for loads of other things besides roasties.   Dishwasher safe and oven safe up to 240°C

No Stress Electric Carving Knife - Judge Cookware

Now I must admit I've always been a bit scared of electric carving knives plus I've never thought they were really necessary and that I could do just as good a job with a good sharp knife.

But after testing this one from Judge Cookware I've been converted and have decided an electric knife is the way to go.

I used it to carve the Sunday roast chicken and getting nice thin slices was effortless; this is going to be great for carving the turkey at Christmas.

Check out my video to see it in action!
Apologies for the video being not too amazing quality; turns out we had the video camera on the worst quality setting but as I didn't have another chicken to carve I will soon record another and replace this one.



I find really fresh bread is always a problem to slice, but this Judge Electric Carving Kknife made short work and it was easy to get slices of even thickness.

Perfect Partners - Coffee Grinder and Cafetiere from Judge Cookware

Forget 'instant' coffee and instead grind your own beans with this Stainless Steel Coffee Bean Grinder from Judge Cookware.

I'd never used a manual coffee grinder before but it's really simple to use.  All you do is pour in your coffee beans, turn the handle and you have your very own freshly ground coffee.  It does take a good few turns but the smell is amazing which makes it so worth the relatively small amount of effort.

Coffee

Depending on the way you are going to brew your coffee you can easily adjust the grind setting from coarse to fine - I had the grinder set to fine.

Coffee Grinder

The ceramic burr mechanism means that coffee beans are ground rather than cut which gives maximum aroma and maintains nutrients.

The perfect partner for your Coffee Bean Grinder is this Judge Glass Cafetiere.

Cafetiere

The Cafetiere is made from Borosilicate Glass which is scratch and thermal shock resistant (0 to
180°C).  It has a stainless steel filter so it will last longer and has a stylish polished lid and plunger and the whole thing is dishwasher safe too.

With Christmas just around the corner either one of these (or both) would make a great present for any coffee lovers; or of course you could just treat yourself!

Mini Chopper JEA75 by Judge Cookware - Review

If you're reading this then chances are you may well like cooking, but if you hate the bother of chopping onions and carrots etc. and are looking for a neat little chopper to do the job for you, then this is one of the Best Mini Chopper's I've seen.

It's easy to operate, just by pressing down the power button in short bursts until the desired level of chopping has been achieved.  The glass bowl allows you to see your ingredients and check how things are going.

Mini Chopper

The above image has been supplied by Judge Cookware as this product is almost impossible to photograph unless you want to see me in the shiny part of the power unit taking the photo  - not recommended!

Judge Double Walled Highball Glasses

I say milkshakes and hot sunny weather are made for each other.  It's such a lovely day here again that I've stopped all housework to make banana milkshakes.  So it's also a good time to tell you about these thermally insulated Double Walled Highball Glass from Judge Cookware.  They're perfect for keeping drinks cold.  Hot drinks stay hot whilst the exterior remains cool to touch; ice cold drinks like my Extra Creamy Banana Milkshake stay nice and cold without any producing condensation. Great for food photography!


As milkshakes go banana milkshake is my favourite.  
Makes 4 good sized milkshakes. 
3 nice big bananas, 700ml milk, a few generous scoops of vanilla ice cream and about 3 tablespoons of banana milkshake mix (I used Nesquik).  

Put the lot into a blender and whiz for a few seconds - that's it job done.
Of course these Highball glasses and the Tumblers are more suited to long drinks, beers or cocktails and milkshakes; for hot drinks there are Cappuccino, Espresso and Latte glasses which I have previously reviewed; click here to read my review and I think you'll agree they are the nicest looking Latte glasses ever!  

Scratch and heat resistant (0 to 100°C) and made from borosilicate glass.
Dishwasher safe
Available as a set of 2 glasses (350ml) 
Product Ref JD640

Perfect Combo - Slate and Wood Serveware by Judge

Now I do love a nice bit of real slate so I'm quite excited about the new Slate and Wood serveware collection from Judge Cookware.  Altogether there are 8 pieces in the collection; 5 Platters, a Lazy Susan, a Cheeseboard with Cloche and a Cheeseboard and Knife Set.

The platters and lazy Susan are great for displaying tasty nibbles for sharing such as my Goats Cheese Mini Tarts; some with Roasted Peppers and the rest with Caramelised Red Onion.

Goats Cheese

No proper recipe for these as they are so simple to make.  Just cut circles out of ready rolled shortcrust pastry and put them into a Yorkshire Pudding or Muffin Tin - this will give them a little bit of curved shape to enable a filling to be added later on.  Bake in the oven 200C 400F or Gas 6 for about 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and top with a small amount of soft goats cheese then add caramelised onions or roasted peppers (the peppers I used come in a jar) just drain them from their oil.  Pop the tarts back into the oven for a further 4 to 5 minutes to heat through.

Automatic Egg Cooker Review - Judge Cookware

This rather cute Automatic 7 Hole Egg Cooker from Judge Cookware allows you to cook any amount from 1 to 7 eggs at the same time.  It's energy efficient, really easy to use and works by automatically adjusting cooking time according to the quantity of water used; simple but clever ah?  I think so.


There's a small jug that has clear and easy to understand measurements marked on the outside.  All you so is decide how many eggs you wan to cook and how you would like them cooked; Soft, Medium or Hard and fill the water level that corresponds with your choice.

Judge - Sabatier Kitchen Knives Review

I say these kitchen knives from Judge Cookware are excellent.  Judge has teamed up with Sabatier to bring a range of quality kitchen knives designed with the professional/home chef in mind.


Made from hardened stainless steel with smooth, ergonomic handles and are comfortable to hold and use.  The riveted handles make these knives robust and the Sabatier endorsement assures that each knife is designed with professional Sabatier standards of material, weight, balance and safety in mind.

How to Make - Leek Brie and Bacon Quiche using a Pie Maker

Regular readers will know all about my amazing, life changing pie maker from Judge Cookware! 
Now, my first attempt at quiche wasn't brilliant as the filling didn't cook enough while the pastry was getting a little too done for my liking.  Well I've been experimenting and after a couple of attempts, I think you'll agree I've now perfected quiche. 


Of course you can use Cheddar cheese if you don't like Brie.  I just happened to have some in my fridge left over from my Moroccan dinner party the weekend before; and yes I know Brie isn't in any way very Moroccan, but after dessert we ended our meal with cheese and biscuits.

Apple Pie with Rum Soaked Sultanas - Judge Cookware Electric Pie Maker Review

Everyone likes a good pie whether it's sweet or savory.  New in my kitchen is this Electric Pie Maker from Judge Cookware and I have to say I'm seriously loving it.  In a word it's brilliant; the pastry cooks perfectly and the deep fill pie moulds allow for 'proper' good and filling pies to be cooked in just 15 minutes once you have the filling ready.

Apple Pie made in an electric pie maker

Far quicker than waiting for the oven to heat up, so in a way this is also a money saving gadget too!

Sizzling Steak with Peppers Onions and Chilli - Judge Sizzle and Serve

Steak needs to be cooked quickly over a high heat so that it seals, keeping it tender and juicy.  All you need is a good piece of steak, sliced along with onions and peppers; coated in tiny amount of oil, soy sauce with a bit of seasoning, and a few chilli flakes and you have dinner ready in just a couple of minutes.


But of course your pan needs to be HOT really hot, and this cast iron sizzle platter from Judge Cookware is perfect for creating sizzling meals or side dishes that can be taken straight to the table thanks to the maple wood stand that's included.  Sizzle and Serve range is suitable for all hob types and barbeques, and is oven-safe up to 240°C

Judge Calorie Counting Kitchen and Diet Scales - Review

If you're counting calories these very nice looking Kitchen and Diet Scales from Judge cookware are perfect.  Anyone on a diet will know how hard it is to keep track of the calories in home cooking.

Diet Scales

As these scales are so shiny and white it was hard for me to get any decent photos without reflection so please note all photos have been supplied by Judge. 

Once you turn these scales on the word 'Hello' shows up and you can measure ingredients by weight and volume, in grams, ounces and millilitres.  The one-touch measurement conversion and a tare function makes it easy to add other ingredients.  Since they can weigh up to 10kg they are perfect for pretty much any recipe and are easy to wipe clean after use.

Double Walled Glassware from Judge - Review

I'm really loving the new range of Double Walled Glassware from Judge - they're extremely nice looking don't you think?


The latte glasses are also a good size for a nice cup of tea (if you're like me and not a coffee drinker) whats more, they really do keep drinks hot for longer.  Perfect for sitting at the PC as I always seem to be, there's nothing worse than a lukewarm cuppa!

Hob Top Glass Tea Pot - Judge Cookware

This rather nice and very stylish tea pot from Judge Cookware has cloud-resistant glass and can be used on all hob types including induction to boil water and keep tea warm.  Having been sent one to review here's how it went....


It has a capacity of 500ml-900ml so will make between two and five cups of tea or two big mugs.  I'm thinking this would make an ideal for a Mother's Day gift.

Orange Flavoured Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce and Caramelised Orange Slices

With Pancake day just around the corner, now's the time to get creative in the kitchen and serve up something other than the normal everyday kind of pancake.  Come on, get cooking!  That said, personally I actually like and prefer pancakes with a just sprinkle of sugar and a good squeeze of lemon - I'm easily pleased!

Pancakes

First job is to get yourself a good decent non-stick frying pan that's up to the job. This rather nice looking frying pan from Judge Cookware Continental range is the very fellow.  This pan heats up quickly making it perfect for pancakes.  Of course this frying pan isn't only for pancakes. Great for everyday use and perfect for that Saturday morning bacon sandwich or a good fry up.

Great British Sunday Roast - Made Easy with Judge Cookware

The Great British Sunday roast is a meal that is actually quite easy to make.  Once you have the vegetables peeled, chopped and ready to go, the meat or poultry is a doddle to cook, but of course like everything, having the right tools makes any job easier.
This Judge non-stick Roast Tin and 'V' Roasting Rack has been designed to cook meat to perfection.  It's made from heavy carbon steel, with a non stick coating and was both great to use and easy clean. 

 
The tin provides even heat distribution, while the rack has been fashioned  into a V to allow fat to drain away from the joint, giving you a crisper, healthier cut.  The excess oil can then be poured away, or used to make gravy.  As you can see the chicken cooked on the V rack came out of the oven with nice crispy skin.

Vegetable and Barley Soup

A good bowl of soup is always a good thing and a great way to eat lots of lovely veg if you are someone that usually doesn't.  Add pearl barley and I say this soup just has to be good for you.  Pearl barley is similar to wheat in its caloric, protein, vitamin and mineral content and is great for adding to soups and stews.

Vegetable and Barley Soup

Pearl barley does take a bit of cooking though so you will need to rinse it then into a saucepan with plenty of cold water.  Cover with a lid, bring to a boil for 10 minutes then reduce the heat and simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until tender before adding to your soup.
