Blog Description:

Beach Hut Cook is a food, drink and lifestyle blog focussed on simple tasty food cooked at our beach hut which is a short walk from our seaside home. I feature outside cooking either on a barbecue or firepit/tripod, all cooked and photographed in real time. I also showcase my vlogs and how to guides on simple food and drinks. There’s nothing better than a cocktail or two as the sun sets. We have a lot of fun at our beach hut and its furnished in a simple retro style with many vintage finds bought from local seaside towns. My audience is a mixture of age groups as I feature easy to cook recipes that can be easily replicated at home, on a camping trip or out on a woody walk.

A late summer fruit rum based cocktail that is made in a jug which makes the easiest party cocktail to enjoy with friends.

The end of summer comes suddenly, one minute we are basking in the glorious sunshine and the next there’s a sudden cold snap and the autumn scents the air.  However, we’ve got a few more weeks before we fully submit to the new season. So we are making the most of it by having as many beach hut visits and late afternoon strolls as possible.

We are hosting a party soon and I want to great each guest with a cocktail but the thought of making individual drinks every time is daunting.  To keep it easy I decided we needed a cocktail we could make in a jug without all the fiddly individual measuring out but not too strong to make our guests giggly and dancing before 9pm; after is fine.

As the Season Changes …

This recipe can easily be served with blackberries and pomegranate seeds as autumn gathers pace or even once summer is back with us then perhaps strawberries and apple slices.

Late Summer Punch Cocktail with rum, sparkling wine, peaches and raspberries. Perfect for parties.

Honey Mustard Chicken, a simple yet tasty quick dinner which is perfect for after work when you have little time or energy.  

An easy after work dinner. Honey Mustard Chicken, each to prepare and quick and tasty.

After work when I’ve worked flat-out and happy to be in the familiar surroundings of home I want an easy to cook dinner that’s quick and tasty.  I want nothing more than to slam something in the oven, prep some green veg and then sit down and eat with my people.

Normally cooking is fun and relaxing for me especially when family and friends come round but after work, it’s different.  I want to tick off the major food groups, eat something tasty and if I can cook double for a make ahead dinner for another day then I’m happy.  This honey mustard chicken dish ticks all those boxes.  Cooking double means you’ve got chicken sandwiches for lunch the next day, or fajitas for another dinner and maybe even the base for a chicken pasta dish for another after that.  Smug doesn’t even come close.

Date and Maple Granola. Winning at Breakfast.

Date and Cinnamon Granola: Winning at Breakfast The post Date and Maple Granola. Winning at Breakfast. appeared first on Beachhutcook.com.

Deliciously easy granola with oats, selection of seeds, coconut, dates, cinnamon and maple syrup baked until just toasted and stored away to make those breakfasts worth waking up for  

cinamon date granola breakfast beachhutcook

Weekend breakfasts in our house fall in two different camps: the hurried no time to stop or the let’s drag out the morning for as long as possible. The latter being much preferred when it’s a beach hut breakfast. However on either type of breakfast, granola can often be featured.

Lately I’ve been feeling a tad miffed when it comes to paying crazy prices when buying a box of granola only to find it’s nearly all gone after a big family breakfast and it wasn’t cheap in the first place! So I thought surely I could make our own? After a few disasters (overcooking) I think I have found the answer.

cinamon date granola breakfast beachhutcook

Ive leant the secret is in the ratio of oats to fruit to nuts and seeds plus the cooking time. It’s a little like cooking cookies, you need to undercook and take out of the oven when just as its starting to colour. Anything more and you can’t save it and it’s fit or the bin.

I like the amount of seeds and fruit to be quite high but not over the top and I do like the warmth from cinnamon. Come summer I might add less but this blend tastes heavenly when added to a fruit crumble topping.

Of course you can change the type of dried fruit you use and change the seeds and used too but I find keeping to this ratio gives you the right amount of flavour and texture that shop bought varieties can’t.  So far I haven’t added nuts but should you do, please let me know how it turns out.

Ingredients
  1. 350g rolled oats
  2. 50g seasame seeds
  3. 80g sunflower seeds
  4. 100g pumpkin seeds
  5. 100g soft dates, chopped
  6. 60g desicated coconut
  7. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  8. 3 tablespoons rapeseed oil
  9. 1 tablespoons coconut oil
  10. 80ml maple syrup
  11. 60g runny honey
  12. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 140C/325F/Gas Mark 3
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil and add the remaining wet ingredients.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.
  5. Turn out on to two shallow baking trays and spread out.
  6. Place in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes and toss the granola every to ensure even cooking. Halfway through swap the trays over.
  7. Once cooled completely place into a large jar and this will keep for 8 weeks.
Notes
  1. Like baking cookies, it is best to remove the granola from the oven when it looks undercooked otherwise once at overcooked/tawny brown stage it is fit for the bin and nothing else!

A low fat version of spicy piri piri chicken recipe that brings back memories of our holiday in Portugal. Rich and flavoursome with lower calories as baked rather than fried and skin removed.

Once we hit the beginning of February, we’ve already shrugged off the heady festivities of Christmas, and it’s chocolate filled all day pyjama wearing sessions, I am looking forward to the tale-tale signs of spring.  I get a burning need to clean everything (don’t worry it soon passes) and declutter and paint everything white (again it soon passes).  But mostly I start thinking of summer holidays and discovering new food and flavour combinations, in fact, everything new.  Bring on the newness of everything.

A low fat version of spicy piri piri chicken recipe that brings back memories of our holiday in Portugal. Rich and flavoursome with lower calories as baked rather than fried and skin removed.

Last summer we holidayed in Portugal and every restaurant featured piri piri flavoured dishes on their menus.  I became a little obsessed in finding the right combination: not too hot, not too mild, just right.  I think with the dish below I got it just right.

We also drank rather a lot of White Port and Tonics which will always remind me of our trip to Lisborn midway through our holiday. 

Normally Piri Piri chicken is cooked with the skin on and although this is delicious, I wanted to cook a lower fat version, which we happily ate cold the next day.  Perfect for lazy slow days in a villa with the only jobs to do were which book to read by the pool.  Now tell me you’re not ready to hit the new season and embrace the newness.

  7. ½ teaspoon piri piri sauce or Tabasco
  8. Pinch of sea salt
  9. Parsley, chopped
Instructions
  1. Place the onions on the bottom of a large ovenproof dish, cut up one of the lemons, and add.  This will act as a base for the chicken.
  2. Place the chicken over the onion and lemon mix.
  3. Zest and juice the remaining lemon.
  4. Mix together the garlic, oil, smoked paprika, piri piri sauce, salt, lemon zest, juice, and pour over the chicken.  Massage into the chicken.

Notes
  1. Serve with roasted red peppers and potatoes.

After a long day at work or a full on day out, you want an easy go-to dinner that draws a line in the sand from working week to hello weekend.  This easy chicken and chorizo rice bake draws that line perfectly.

It’s our cosy Friday night dinner when we grab a few moments together to talk about our week, discuss weekend plans and relax in each other’s company.  It’s a no frills, easy kind of dinner and I make no excuse for using ready made ingredients.  These simply give you more time to ease into that delicious feeling of relaxation and letting go of the busyness of the week.

You can save time by either prepping the ingredients in advance or even making the chicken and chorizo sauce ahead of time but even from scratch, it’s no hardship.  Whatever works for you.

New Year’s Eve parties are great fun and always something to stay up for but you can flag come 11 o’clock even if your night is just the two of you in front of the TV waiting for the chimes to ring.

To help you through I’ve got a great pick you up cocktail.  Espresso Martinis are the perfect answer as they give you zing you need to party just a little while longer.  Should you have any Christmas spiced coffee leftover that you bought on a whim, this is a great way to use it up.

Using maple syrup as a sweetener gives a layer of smokiness and saves you time in making a sugar syrup.

Another coffee based martini recipe is HERE – Flat White Martini using an Irish Whiskey liqueur.
