"When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be."........
Some of the recipes that I have tried,tested and tasted..and some that I want to try,test and taste... :) ....and other useful information all collected and saved in one place.....

White Beans and Sausages the T-fal Actifry Way.....
450 g (1 lb) pork sausages/chicken or turkey/cocktail sausages/Chorizos
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 ActiFry spoon sunflower oil (or other oil)
410 g (14 oz) can haricot or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
400 g (14 oz) can chopped tomatoes/or tomato puree
1 ActiFry spoon dried mixed herbs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Chopped fresh parsley, to garnish (optional)
1. Place the sausages in the ActiFry pan. Cook for 10 minutes. 2. Add the onion and cook in the fat from the sausages. If there is insufficient fat in the pan, pour in 1 ActiFry spoonful of oil. Cook for 5 minutes. 3. Add the beans, tomatoes, dried herbs and seasoning. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the sausages are cooked. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired, and serve with crusty bread or mashed potatoes. Variations: If the sauce is too thin for your taste, blend 1 ActiFry spoonful of cornflour with a little cold water, then stir this into the sausage mixture in the ActiFry. Cook for about 5minutes, or until the sauce is thickened.
