Baked Brie with pesto and roasted tomatoes

Posted on December 15, 2016 by in cheese

Baked Brie

Baked Brie is from the gods. Seriously, I don’t do it often, because I have no control. Baked Brie is brie on steroids, it takes this already delicious cheese to another level. It is definitely a showstopper too. Whether you make individually  wrapped cheeses or one big round, your guests will love it. It is […]

Toasted Ham Cheese Sandwich – for us it is Sunday night’s treat. I kid you not, we eat toasted sandwiches most Sunday nights, well maybe not when there is Leftover Leg of Lamb Sandwiches. Toasted Ham Cheese sandwiches can be with just plain old cheese and plain old ham and to me it would be […]

asparagus

Asparagus, oh the luxury of Spring and Summer! During the year, we have to settle for the tinned variety or if the cravings overtake common sense the imported ones, but come September and October we can feast on fresh asparagus.

Toasted Cheese

Toasted Cheese and tomato sandwiches are our stock standard Sunday night grub. Lots of cheese, lots of black pepper on white bread. Sinful, I know, but delicious. What is it that is so irresistible about melted toasted cheese? If I don’t put a stop to it, my children put grated cheese on a plate and […]

De-boned Roast Chicken

De-boned roast chicken has been on my to-do-list for a very long time. Roast chicken, I think I have perfected ( according to my family), but de-boned roast chicken I have avoided for far to long. The fear of failure is my downfall in life and it was also what kept me from trying to […]

Mediterranean cuisine or style of cooking fits me like a glove. I love all the flavors form this region. I think in my previous life, I lived somewhere in the Mediterranean. My favorite herbs such as basil, thyme, oregano, parsley, sage and mint are associated with dishes from the Mediterranean. Add to that tomatoes, garlic, […]

Camembert

Camembert must be the cheese I use most in my kitchen. I know the children go through blocks upon blocks of cheddar for toasted sarmies and in their omelets, but I am talking about me and my recipes. Camembert is a soft cheese made with cows’ milk. It has a furry white rind speckled with […]
