ricotta

Ricotta is traditionally made with the leftover whey after the making of other cheeses! Ricotta is very similar to cottage cheese, but the fat content is slightly lower! Some people call it “hang cheese”, because the curds is tied up in a clean cloth and hung up in the fridge to drain all the liquid! […]

yogurt

Yogurt, eaten in tubs-full in my house at the moment! no, not low-far Bulgarian kind….. thick lusciously creamy Greek-style yogurt! Yogurt has practically taken over the dairy aisle! It’s getting more and more difficult to see the more traditional dairy foods, such as cottage cheese, buttermilk and sour cream, in the sea of yogurt options. […]

sandwiches

Sandwiches are my downfall! If it was not for bread I would take to the LCHF, Ducan or Paleo diets like an otter to water, but I love bread and in particular sandwiches! Sandwiches do not have to be boring and that was exactly my topic when I had my first talk on RSG! my […]

mushrooms

Mushrooms, the  spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus with a stem, a cap and gills or spores underneath the cap, that’s if you need a scientific explanation  of this deliciousness! For me, mushrooms add the earthy component to a dish. Mushrooms never steal the show, but rather hang around in the background, but leave them […]

cream cheese

Cream cheese and biltong truffles sound way more interesting to me then chocolate truffles as I am far more a savory kinda of girl than a sweet one. Cream cheese all on its own with a few salty biscuits is quite sufficient as a light mid-morning snack, but add a few tasty ingredients like biltong […]

figs

Figs are on their way out as we slowly but surely move into a new season, but they are still sweet and delicious on their own, or paired with sweet or savory dishes. Figs some of the “sexiest” food items  to photograph and no other fruit really compares with a chilled fresh fig from the […]

cheesecake

Cheesecake  must be near the top of the best-desserts-in-the-world-list.  Almost every food website or blog, claim to have  “Best Cheesecake recipe”.  Some prefer their cheesecake baked, others  “fridged”, but there are very people I know who does not succumb to a slice of cheesecake. Cheesecake is right at the top of my list, don’t know […]

Mini Savory Cheesecakes could also be called quiches, but I  think the occasion calls for things to be a bit fancier than usual. You may have  all by now noticed that things changed here on My easy Cooking, definitely for the better! Our brand new site is much more interesting and dynamic than before and […]
