crowded house + red wine time

my favourite thing to do is cook. i'm definitely an amateur, one of those annoying food pic people. some of my most treasured memories are friday nights in the kitchen with my family, crowded house playing in the background, red wine flowing, love and laughter, and a bloody good meal.

tonight's indulgent little treat is maggie beer inspired caramelised figs in honey. four fresh figs, washed and cut in halves, caramelised in a hot pan with about a teaspoon of lurpak butter, and a few teaspoons of honey (i have some very special homegrown honey from a friend's father's private hives). served with a generous dollop of pure barambah organic cream. serves two (okay, or one...). happy days xo

I'm seriously surprised at how tasty this healthy this cous cous salad is. I roasted diced sweet potato with a little organic coconut oil, then threw in some sliced red capsicum and grape tomatoes, tossed with salt n pepper and continued to roast til blistered and crispy. The cous cous is wholemeal, made on chicken stock with garlic and diced grape tomatoes. Shaved some zucchini, chucked a handful of baby spinach in, and a little coconut oil roasted chicken breast. Finished it off with feta…

hello roasted butternut pumpkin soup! half a butternut pumpkin slow roasted for about 1.5hrs with a small onion, some aussie garlic and rosemary. blitzed up with 2 cups of chicken stock, seasoned with about 1/4tsp keen's curry powder (yes, you read that right) and a 1/2tsp nutmeg. keep on the heat to let the flavours infuse for a while. serve with a cheeky dollop of crème fraîche and cracked black pepper. a delicious spicy spoonful goes well with a fresh grain roll slathered in lurpak…

i've been hanging out for something a little naughty all week! friday night dinner for one is risotto with garlic, white wine (a 'small portion' as my uncle used to say), chicken stock, lots of rosemary, chicken breast, bacon, zucchini, green beans, asparagus, spinach and a delicious dollop of crème fraîche. such a happy tummy right now :)

today was a good food day. i promised that i would clean the cupboards out if i treated myself to a nice eye fillet for dinner. served it medium with a salad of green beans, kipfler potatoes, roasted cherry tomatoes and baby spinach tossed in salted butter with fresh cracked pepper (and shiraz, always shiraz). i have a very happy tummy, the sun has set and the cupboards are yet to be cleaned, oops

welcome to 2014. my new year's resolution is to cook more. okay, i do cook a fair bit already, but the whole idea is on day's like today, when i had enjoyed one too many glasses of bubbly the night before, i resist the urge to get some greasy (delicious) fried chicken take away for dinner, and just get off my ass and cook! this wholemeal pasta took 30 mins: chicken, garlic, oregano, lemon, olive oil, roasted heirloom tomatoes, spinach, shaved zucchini, cream and some pepper. and it feels…

leftover homemade pumpkin soup became risotto with chicken, prosciutto and rosemary tonight. this is normally where i'd list ingredients, but all i did was precook some chicken breast and San Danielle prosciutto, remove it from the pan, then make your basic risotto (try the Marie Claire basic recipe), put the chicken and prosciutto back in with fresh chopped rosemary, then stirred in a cup of leftover homemade pumpkin soup. little bit of vintage cheddar, cracked pepper and a glass of wine xo
