Potatoes and Eggs with Thai green coconut curry

June 14, 2021

I love the flavours of south east Asia but I find making the recipes difficult as I seldom have all the ingredients on hand and I usually cook with what’s in my fridge. To make up for this I always have green and red curry paste jars in the fridge along with small jars of grated lemongrass and even ginger in case I need it. I use these to make Asian style dishes that are... View Article

Chilaquilles with salsa verde

June 3, 2021

When visiting Cancun, as much as I enjoy going out for breakfast at one of the beautiful beach restaurants in this area, once in a while I have to put my cooking skills to use and make something at home other than the routine oatmeal that I usually “have to have”. Chilaquiles, a classic Mexican breakfast dish, is one of my favourite Mexican style breakfasts. Although it is seemingly a quick dish to make, it... View Article

Sourdough Discard Waffles with Oats

May 31, 2021

Whenever I make or refresh my starter I end up making overnight discard waffles. I leave the batter overnight and in the morning add a bit of oil, sugar and oat milk but no eggs. I imagine eggs may make them more fluffy but I like them the way they are and you can always add a teaspoon or so of baking powder or baking soda. These were baked in a small heart shaped waffle...

Oeufs en Cocotte (baked eggs)

May 29, 2021

Morning, have you had breakfast yet? Here is a fun one if you eat eggs. I know it as a French dish, oeufs en cocotte but it’s aka shirred eggs. Basically it’s eggs baked in cream with cheese and some additions. I added asparagus and goat cheese. There is a story behind the dish. Oeufs en cocotte is a French dish named after the dish it is cooked in. A cocotte is a flat individual baking dish... View Article

Dutch baby pancakes with blueberries, creme fraiche and bluberry compote

May 19, 2020

I enjoy making Dutch baby pancakes now and then. I don’t know why they are called Dutch though. When we were in holland they were no where to be found and whoever I asked, did not know about them. What they have in Holland are the little proffertjes, small round delicious pancakes that you can have all day long. These are reminiscent of popovers as they puff up in the oven and create a bowl...

Vegan pancakes

March 30, 2020

It’s the kind of morning that requires pancakes. Cloudy, blowing outside, cushions flying off all over the rooftop patio. I was almost blown off myself trying to retrieve them in the wind and rain. But, it was fun. I make the pancake plant based without using eggs and oil BUT I can’t give up the whipped cream, so there. You, of course, suit yourself:). They are light and fluffy because of the baking powder so... View Article

Waffles with oats and strawberry sauce

March 25, 2020

I was dying to go out for breakfast this morning but of course, we must stay home. So I made waffles, something I don’t indulge in too often but enjoy it when I do. #quaratinecooking#dontroamstayhome#physicaldistancenotsocialdistance#physicaldistancesocialconnection . So I spent some time with our daughter and baby on video, sang to him (he wasn’t impressed) and got a few smiles and cooing. I think he may like the sound of my voice. Thank you @alexis_honce for staying connected. made... View Article

Brioche and sugar buns

March 16, 2020

Thankfully I love both cooking and baking so when I need a break from one I have the other. This week I am participating in one of those online challenges that are popular among foodies on Instagram and the subject was enriched breads. Those challenges are not a competition but rather an opportunity to connect with like minded foodies from around the globe, see each other’s work, exchange ideas and learn. When it comes to...

Chocolate Waffles

March 1, 2020

Just in time for Sunday morning breakfast here is a recipe for either breakfast or dessert. Not an everyday thing but fun now and then.

Turkish eggs

February 16, 2020

The French have their egg en cocotte (eggs baked in cream) and the Turkish have their Turkish eggs, served over warmed yogurt with garlic and salt. You have to try it to get it.

Cinnamon sugar cakes

January 26, 2020

I baked these lovely little cakes to use in an image for the online food photography challenge I am participating in. It’s a lot of work producing all these images but I have been having fun with it, working in a community of creative foodies/photographers, making online friends and expanding my horizons. The little cakes were so delicious that I thought I’d share the recipe here. You can make a vegan version of it by... View Article

Blood Orange and Dates Muffins

January 23, 2020

Still in the citrus theme, I made muffins using whole blood oranges and medjool dates and dusted them with powdered sugar when they cooled after baking. This is one of the oranges I created for the food photography online challenge, but ended up submitting something else. I make these by mixing the orange, dates, juice etc (the wet ingredients) in the food processor, and add them to the flour (dry mixture) when ready to bake.... View Article
