I’ve fancied making taquitos for a while now and when I eventually got around to it I thought they were really good. If you don’t know what taquitos are, they’re basically a tortilla wrap that’s filled with tasty ingredients, wrapped up like a cigar and then fried in a little oil to create a crispy tube that encases its filling.
These lemon curd cakes were created because I’d been in TK Maxx a while ago and I picked up a mini sponge cake baking tray for the bargain price of £1 which bakes mini round sponge cakes (about the size of a macaron half). I was dying to try making mini victoria sponges, but I didn’t want to fill them with the usual standard whipped cream and strawberry jam. However, one of the staple jams I was brought up with is lemon curd and as a result there’s always a jar of it in my fridge.
Dan Dan chicken is a brilliant meal that always goes down a storm with my family whenever I make it. This recipe has been developed from the traditional Chinese Sichuan recipe for Dan Dan noodles which is normally made with a spicy chilli and pepper sauce that’s filled with preserved vegetables surrounding minced pork and spring onions which is served over noodles. I’m not a big fan of minced pork in noodle or rice dishes though, so I just made mine with chunks of chicken breast instead.
