Moroccan Butterflied Chicken

I love a good free range, succulent, crispy chook. I don’t so much like the carving part so I’ve been doing some investigating *googling* and I’ve managed to teach myself how to debone a chicken. Why would I want to do that you ask? Well, the husband, every now and then, likes to display his … Continue reading

Pumpkin, Leek, Spinach & Ricotta Frittata

  It’s that time of year when we have lots of places to go and people to see, this usually goes hand in hand with lots of plates to bring (you can’t turn up empty handed can you?). Not that I mind providing a dish for the festivities…that way I know there is at least … Continue reading

Rocket & Pomegranate Salad

Tis the season…fa la la la la etc. Have you ever noticed that men seem to enjoy the silly season far more than the ladies? Perhaps that’s because the lion share of duties seems to fall squarely on the shoulders of feminine persuasion. Well, for the next few posts I’m going to pop up some … Continue reading

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Now don’t let this post fool you…I’m not a firm believer that carbs/grains/whatever are the enemy and should never pass the lips, it’s just that sometimes I like to get some extra serves of vegetables into my day and substituting rice with cauliflower is an easy way to up the intake and lighten the load. … Continue reading

It gives you two good servings of … Continue reading

Garlic prawn pizza

Garlic Seafood Pizza

Happy pizza day! Once you get in the habit of making your own pizza dough you will never again buy those store bought ones. These are thin and crispy and taste utterly delicious. No comparison at all. It may seem a bit time consuming but really it’s just waiting time for the dough to prove, … Continue reading

Chicken, beetroot and feta salad

  So I’ve discovered a new product in the refrigerator section of the supermarket. Love Beets have produced a ready to eat beetroot product. Now normally I’m a little against the processing of foods but this small package is quite the time saver and more importantly there has been nothing untoward added to the goodness … Continue reading

Spanakopita

Spanakopita is a Greek classic. Spinach and feta encased in gossamer thin filo pastry. The husband’s grandmother (Yia Yia in Greek) used to make it from scratch, rolling out the pastry herself, a skill I definitely do not possess. As luck would have it though, those lovely whisper thin pieces of pastry are in the freezer … Continue reading
