Posted on November 30, 2015 by in Chicken

Christmas Chicken

Christmas Chicken – What makes it so Christmassy? Well, Christmas is about presents and opening parcels…….. Christmas Chicken is like that present under the tree. As you cut through the chicken roll, you fist hit the crispy pancetta, then the soft white chicken meat, then a layer of spinach and in the middle you get […]

Ultimate BLT

Ultimate BLT with bacon Mayo! How dare I make such an assumption. What makes my version of this classic sandwich so “ultimate”? My Ultimate BLT is made with wood smoked hand-cut bacon, the bacon is glazed with syrup and if that is not enough, the Bacon Mayo gives this sandwich the “Ultimate” stamp of approval. […]

Eclairs had me sweating the last 2 days. Not because they are difficult to make, but because I doubted my recipe. You see, as a food writer and recipe developer, we put our tested and trusted recipes out there and hope people will not only try it, but actually like it and make it again. […]

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 […]

homemade pasta

Homemade Pasta is without a doubt my favorite thing to make. If Baking Bread is my therapy, then making my own pasta is self-indulgence. There is just something so magical about 1 egg and flour, gently converted into your own homemade pasta. After all that is in essence what pasta is, egg and flour. We […]

Stuffed Beetroot

Stuffed Beetroot is delicious. It also does not mess all over your plate and the stuffing……. is a personal matter! Last week sometime I discussed a beetroot recipe on my Facebook page and one of the readers commented on how much she hates beetroot. She said it tastes like nothing and it messes all over […]

Caramel Popcorn Rocky Road with Sea salt

Posted on August 28, 2015 by in baked goods

Caramel Popcorn

Caramel Popcorn is my Achilles heel. Put that Caramel popcorn in some milk chocolate and you have a sugar rush of epic proportions. The sea salt will send you over the edge! I have never made Rocky Road before, not exactly sure why, maybe this American invention of milk chocolate marshmallow was just overkill sweet […]

Cowboy Beans – The best and easiest recipe!

Cowboy Beans

Cowboy Beans takes me back decades when we were all glued to our neighbor’s lounge floors watching Bonanza as he was the only one with a TV in the neighborhood. Cowboy Beans, as we eat it these days are definitely not something the Cartwright boys from Bonanza would have made, because they only had one […]
