Pickled Beets

May 21st, 2014 by Michael | Comments Off on Pickled Beets

  Pickled beets are delicious! Hey, don’t give me that look… I’m not talking about the canned variety that live out their lives in grocery store purgatory, red and flat flavored, tasting as much of the can as the beets. I’m talking about homemade pickled beets here, jarred alongside red onion and rosemary in tasty tarragon […]

Apr 6th, 2011 by Gemma | Comments Off on Vegan Cupcakes – Ponyo Themed

These are the cupcakes that went with the Ponyo cake we showed you on Monday, vanilla with a vanilla frosting and sugarpaste figurines. Best of all – they’re completely vegan. I picked up the book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World a while back, it looked interesting and they had a lot of good looking […]

Chicken And Sausage Gumbo

Feb 21st, 2011 by Michael | 1

Being a native of Southern Louisiana, naturally I have several staple recipes from that region that I cook semi-regularly, learned at my mother’s knee — one being chicken and sausage gumbo.  And much to my mother’s dismay, I’m going to give that recipe up at the end of this post.  *grins* A gumbo is a […]

Sesame Chicken

Jan 31st, 2011 by Gemma | 1

I came to Chinese food later in life, I don’t know why, it’s not as if we never had it when I was young.. But, like kids are wont to do I decided it wasn’t for me and always got fried chicken instead. I’ll admit, even though I’ve been eating Chinese food for several years […]

Chili

Dec 1st, 2010 by Gemma | Comments Off on Chili

Chili is a dish best made when the weather is.. well, chilly. The weather has turned and we’re snuggling under a blanket, it’s the perfect time of the year. A while back we had been wanting to find a good, tried and true chili recipe… a full-bore, proper chili that didn’t use chili powder or […]

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Oct 4th, 2010 by Gemma | Comments Off on Pumpkin Ice Cream

Pumpkin ice cream is a little confusing, the flavours, the warmth of the spices all taste like pumpkin pie. But pumpkin pie has neither this texture, or the temperature of the ice cream! To have something that is cold, frozen in fact, but gives off a warmth tricks the palate so it no longer knows […]

Brownies

Sep 22nd, 2010 by Gemma | Comments Off on Brownies

The brownies were calling my name, I tried to resist, really, I did! But I failed, they called too strongly. I am weak to their siren song. It all started after the brownie mention in the weekly roundup a couple Fridays ago. I had intended to bake that afternoon, and after re-reviewing the article I […]

Butterscotch Pecan Ice Cream & Hot Fudge Sauce

Sep 13th, 2010 by Gemma | Comments Off on Butterscotch Pecan Ice Cream & Hot Fudge Sauce

Got given The Perfect Scoop back in July (for my birthday), yes, I asked for it. But on some level I like to think that perhaps my Mum was dropping some hints for when she next visits! David Lebovitz is a fantastic chef, this is the only book of his that I own but I’ve […]

Fresh Pasta With Tomato, Pepper & Herb Sauce

Jun 30th, 2010 by Gemma | Comments Off on Fresh Pasta With Tomato, Pepper & Herb Sauce

Once again with the Italian food! You’d think I was obsessed or something. I’m having a week of savoury before all the sweetness that lies ahead during July. Now, I love fresh pasta, it is truly one of the fine things in life, once you’ve had it you’ll never want to go back to dried. […]
