Romany Creams

200g Castor Sugar
250g butter
2 medium eggs
580g Cake Flour
30g Cocoa powder
5ml (1 tsp) Baking Powder
260g Desiccated Coconut (preferably sweetened) OPTIONAL 
200g Good quality milk chocolate.

Pre-heat the oven to 180oC
Soften the butter.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs one at a time making sure they are well blended.
Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder then fold into the butter/sugar mixture.
Fold the desiccated coconut into the resultant mixture, making sure it is evenly distributed.
Mix to a fairly stiff dough , if too crumbly you may add a little sunflower oil.
Form the dough into equal sized balls and flatten with a fork. 
Place the cookies on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes.
Remove the cookies from the baking sheet and cool on a wire rack, do not allow to cool on the baking sheet otherwise they will become soggy.
When the biscuits are totally cool melt the chocolate over a basin of hot water or in a microwave, but do not allow it to become too “runny” as you want a relatively thick layer of chocolate between the biscuits.
Sandwich pairs of biscuits together with a thick layer of chocolate and pop the Romany Creams into a fridge for a few minutes to speed up the chocolate hardening process… Do not leave them too long.

Easy One Hour Dinner Rolls Recipe

1½ cups warm water
1 tablespoon yeast (I used rapid yeast)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups all-purpose flour, 
more or less as needed (I used 3-3/4)3 tablespoons melted buttersea salt flakes, for sprinkling on top

Using your mixer bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water and let stand for five minutes, or until foamy (if your bowl is chilled or your room is cool this could take longer)Add butter, salt & 3 cups of the flour, and mix until combined.Add additional flour, ¼ cup at a time, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and is slightly sticky to the touch (do not add too much flour!)Let the mixer knead 3-5 minutes, until smooth.Cover with plastic, place in a warm spot and let rise 20 minutes.Preheat oven to 400 degrees & spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking sprayPunch down the dough & divide into 20 equal sized piecesRoll each piece into a ball and space evenly in the prepared panBrush with melted butter, sprinkle with sea salt, and let rise for an additional 15-20 minutes Bake 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown ( you can turn on the broiler for about 1-2 minutes at the end to get a more golden top)Remove and brush with butterLet cool slightly before serving.

Sausage Rolls Recipe

6 pre-rolled puff pastry sheets, halved
1 lb ground sausage
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1⁄2 cup milk
salt and pepper
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 425. Lay all the sheets of pastry out on your counter top. Mix together the sausage, breadcrumbs, onion, parsley, milk, salt and pepper. The mixture will be quite sloppy – this keeps the sausage rolls moist. Whisk the egg and 2 tablespoons of milk together in a small bowl. Fill a large piping bag (no nozzle) with the mix and squeeze out a long line of mix down the long edge of the pastry, about 1/2 an inch in from the edge. Roll up. Seal the inner edge with a little of the egg mix. Cut each of these rolls in half. Prick each roll a couple of times with a fork. Repeat this until all the pastry and mix is used. Brush the tops of the rolls with the egg mix. Place in the oven and cook for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to 395 and cook for a further 20 minutes.

Soft layered chapati and stewed kienyeji chicken

1.In a bowl put 2 1/2 cups of flour, add salt and sugar.
2.Add 1 cup of warm water
3.Mix the flour and water to form a thick paste.
4.Add more flour to make it more thick but not too hard. (I love kneading my dough on a flat space until I have attained the right elasticity)
5. Apply the 2 tbsp oil to the dough once you have attained the right extensibility and elasticity.
6.Cover the dough for 30 minutes. This makes the chapati dough to rest and spreading it becomes very easy.
7.Once the 30 minutes are over, roll your chapati dough into small ball according to the number of chapati you want to make.
8.Spread each chapati dough ball with a wooden rolling pin into circular flat bread adding flour where necessary so as to avoid the bread from sticking to the surface.
9. Heat oil in a pan and fry each chapati until they are over.

Kienyeji chicken- It’s the simplest. Boil chicken for about 45 minutes, then add onions and tomatoes, cook till soft the add hoho and dhania.
