IRISH STEW – MY VERSION !!

by in Recipes March 16, 2020

Tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day so I thought I would make a big pot of Irish Stew.   This is my version, so I don’t know what purists would think of it, but as I am Australian I can get away with it !!! My elderly in-laws are in self imposed isolation with the Corona Virus […]

OLIVE OIL ROASTED SALMON

by in Recipes March 16, 2020

I had some Salmon fillets in the fridge and then on Saturday Lilly Higgins in the Irish Times had a delicious sounding recipe for Olive Oil Roasted Salmon so I thought I would try it for Sunday nights dinner.  Lilly suggested serving it with Cauliflower Puree but I served it with Stir Fried Green Vegetables.  […]

VEGAN BANANA BREAD

by in Recipes March 15, 2020

This Banana Bread is the nicest Vegan Banana Bread I have tried so far.  It is incredibly moist and tasty.  I used the recipe from the book Mildreds Vegan Cookbook but changed it to make it Gluten Free by using Doves Gluten Free Flour.  It worked perfectly, although took maybe an extra 10 minutes cooking […]

ROAST CHICKEN WITH ROASTED VEGETABLES

This dinner is perfect for putting in the oven and just leaving it to do its thing!!!!   The leftovers also make an excellent packed lunch the next day for school or work.  For lunch it can be eaten hot or cold and is very tasty.  You could make it into a Chicken and Roast Vegetable […]

CHIPOTLE FISH AND CAULIFLOWER TACOS

by in Recipes February 1, 2020

We love Tacos in this house and I am always trying new recipes and combinations.   This recipe was originally for chicken, but as I have a pescatarian in the house I wanted to just make one dinner for everyone, so I swapped the chicken for Monkfish.   I made the Pickled Onions earlier in […]

BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING

by in Recipes January 30, 2020

Bread and Butter Pudding is a favourite in my house.  It is a very old fashioned dessert and very comforting on these cold winter nights.  I was given a couple of Panettones for Christmas and was wondering what to do with them, so decided that Panettone would make a delicious bread to use in the […]

FISH CHOWDER – DAIRY AND GLUTEN FREE

by in Recipes November 13, 2019

My challenge was to make a Fish Chowder which was delicous but Dairy and Gluten Free,  still keeping that rich creamy consistency. I am delighted with this Chowder, it is delicious and creamy but also at the same time light. This reheats perfectly as long as you do it gently.  It is perfect for a […]

QUICK AND EASY SALSA

by in Recipes November 12, 2019

This is the Salsa I made to go with my Vegetarian Chilli Bowl. This Salsa is very easy and quick to make with none of the fine chopping involved with making Salsa Fresca (fresh diced tomatoes etc). You do need a food processor or blender though.   Add the Onion, Garlic and Jalapeno Chillies to […]
