Just made this delicious galette - the ingredients are quite simple (and in season right now!) that I’d recommend for anyone to give it a try. It’s much easier to make than a pie, in terms of aesthetics at least, and tastes just as good/better! 

I used this as my pie crust recipe (halved for 1 galette) and will definitely be reusing it :)

Here’s a picture of my galette (not the prettiest thing ever I know, but so delicious):

Just made this delicious spiced chicken with mango salsa for dinner tonight - definitely a redo for the future :)

Also had a go at these garlicky baked fries, which also turned out fantastic (this is pretty rare for me, having double success in trying new recipes). Even the boy agreed that they were the best home fries ever!

Making this for dinner, with a side of crispy garlicky kale … Don’t be jelly ;)


UPDATE: the soup turned out quite delicious (although the boy didn’t like it because he just isn’t a fan of soup). On the other hand, we didn’t like the crispy kale at all. I think some of the recipe sites oversold it, being all like “It tastes like potato chips!”, which it didn’t. Oh well, you win some & you throw out the rest into the compost.

Dinner Tonight: White Anchovy, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Scallion, Pepper, Pecan Oil

Simple things are about all I can manage these days. Fortunately, this is five ingredients and smashed with flavor. 

It’s from Hugh Acheson’s “A New Turn in the South” cookbook. I got it for Christmas, and he even signed it for me. I love that he has a sense of humor about the unibrow.

Anyway, this is delicious and takes about 10 minutes. 

This is going to be tomorrow night’s dinner. Or maybe tuesday’s if I feel like jambalaya tomorrow :D

Bananas Foster

I saw this being made on Sugar High (hosted by Duff from ace of cakes so you know it’s good) this weekend and have been meaning to make it ever since. It looks scrumdelious!

Sounds promising - will do for lunch sometime next week.

I saw this sometime in the last couple of weeks on foodgawker and thought it would be interesting to try. I love cauliflower, and I love fried rice, but would a faux fried rice (cauliflower in place of rice) hit the spot? 

So, first the changes - we didn’t have any broccoli, so we subbed in a bell pepper and some onion instead, and instead of one cup of ham, we used about a quarter cup of bacon. Finally, there was no egg and instead of soy sauce we used some honey mustard, peppercorn sauce, and a dash of worcestershire sauce.

The result was alright, but doesn’t really fill the role of fried rice with actual rice. It tasted better the next day as leftovers (more time for the flavours to mingle), but I wouldn’t replace fried rice with this in the future.
