Karen Martini, You Have Done It Again!

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

On Easter Sunday lunch was at ours! I decided to do slow-cooked lamb for the first time. I was going to use my sister Jenny’s wonderful melt-in-your mouth and tried-and-tested recipe, but I stumbled across a recipe in Feasting by Karen Martini and thought why not increase my stress level on Easter by try something that I’ve never cooked before that sounded super simple and delicious too. I do have a lot of faith in Karen Martini and she certainly did not let me down. I also made her Cos Lettuce, Herb and Cucumber Salad with Yogurt Dressing, which was the perfect accompaniment. And Jenny made a divine Roast Vegetable Cous Cous. It certainly was a feast.

Chocolate Meringue and Chocolate Cream Pie

When Mum asked me what I wanted her to make for dessert I knew it had to be pie! Mum is the Pie Queen. The only tough decision was what kind of pie?

What’s your favourite kind?

Sticky Pecan Rolls

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Easter Sunday was the most glorious, warm autumn day.

We began celebrations with sticky pecan rolls at my parents home.  Easter just would not be Easter without them!

I Heart Friday & Moroccan Harira Soup

Friday, March 30th, 2012

We are finally experiencing some cooler evenings here and I have even had to pull up the covers in the wee hours of the morning. It is such a welcome change after the long Queensland summer.

I’m so looking forward to making soup again. I always feel so virtuous after devouring a big bowl of hearty soup. Soup soothes both body and soul, don’t you think?

Now my all-time favourite is my sister’s Harira Soup recipe. It’s divine and super easy to make. It can even be made in the pressure cooker which makes the lamb melt-in-your-mouth tender!

So, I thought I would share the recipe with you in anticipation of the cooler weather. It certainly is a regular on our Autumn/Winter menu.

Harira Soup

50g butter/olive oil
1 large onion – roughly chopped
1 stick celery – chopped
1/2 teaspoon (or more) cinnamon
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp (or more) paprika
1 Tablespoon cumin
450g lamb – chopped into 2cm dice
100g dried lentils (whole) or 1 tin
1 tin chickpeas
4 large tomatoes chopped or 1 tin
Any vegetable you wish to add eg. pumpkin, beans, carrots, zucchini, spinach
Small handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
Small handful coriander, chopped
Natural yogurt, to dollop
Lemon to serve

Melt butter/oil and cook onion, celery and spices until onion is softened, then add lamb.

Cook until lamb starts to brown a little. Stir in tomatoes and add water (amount of water depends on whether you add dried lentils or not. If adding dried, put in now).

If cooking in pressure cooker, put lid on and pressure cook now for 15 min or so (when pressure cooking, don’t add too much liquid – top it up later). If slow cooking, bring to boil, then simmer and cook with lid until lamb is getting tender (1-2 hours??).

When lamb is quite tender, I add in the vegetables, in order of cooking time, tinned lentils and chickpeas. To thicken the soup a little and change the texture, crush chickpeas against side of pot, or mash 1/2 of them with potato masher before you add them to pot.

Stir in coriander and generous amount of salt.

Cook for a few more minutes, stir in parsley.

Turn stove off and add baby spinach at very end (if using).

Serve with a lemon wedge and a dollop of natural yogurt.

What’s your favourite soup?

Brownies {I Feel So Guilty}

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Oh my!  The whole guilt thing is kicking in about my pathetic blogging schedule of late. The truth is my father has been in hospital, David is away, I have been helping Paris organise a trip to Tanzania, I can’t sit for long because of my bad back, I’ve been going to pilates 4 times a week and most of all I’m slack and undisciplined. I’ve just come across an online art project by Cory Arcangel called Sorry I Haven’t Posted, which re-posts posts of people apologising for not posting on their blog.

So, I’m NOT sorry for being erratic with my blog posts 🙂 and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I’m planning to make my very favourite Donna Hay recipe – Basic and Speedy Brownies. They’re truly the best, just how a brownie should be, nice and fudgy in the centre and crunchy on top.

So my friends, I might see you on Monday!

Though research is needed to better document the mechanics of such transformations, he said, pro-homework-help.com/ qualities such as patience, calmness, cooperation, and kindness should really now best be regarded as skills that can be trained

Jamie Oliver’s Victorian Sponge {Cheats Version}

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

For Maddie’s birthday cake this year, I was inspired by Jamie Oliver’s Victorian Sponge recipe here. However having had a bad experience recently making a sponge cake that was a total throw-in-the-bin flop, I decided to cheat. I purchased an uniced double sponge cake from a good old fashioned bakery. I could guarantee it would be nice and light and airy.

Then to make it into absolute deliciousness, I followed Jamie’s recipe for the strawberry and cream filling. The key ingredient is the lemon juice. I have to admit I was a tad nervous adding lemon juice to the cream. You would think it would curdle, wouldn’t you? However it adds that perfect tartness to balance the strawberries and jam. I certainly will be making this again soon. We almost ate the whole cake in one sitting!

BTW if you have a foolproof sponge cake recipe, please share.

Good Food Fast

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Do you ever look in other people’s shopping trolleys? I do, all the time ;).  I am always surprised by how much pre-prepared or semi-prepared meals people buy.

I love to cook simple fresh food. I believe good ingredients are the key. You don’t have to do much to them. Like these salmon fillets – I just wrap them in foil with whatever vegetables I have on hand, a squeeze of lemon, a splash of olive oil, some garlic, then bake for about 15 minutes and Bob’s your uncle (well actually he’s my father). Nothing could be simpler…or tastier.

Dumplings {To Die For}

Friday, January 20th, 2012

We really loved having my nephew Sam and his girlfriend Wei home from Beijing for the holidays. Wei is an absolute darling and such fun to have around.

One night she cooked up an incredible Chinese feast for us all, including dumplings from scratch!

There was plenty of laughter and frivolity, a given when my family’s together. And Wei’s feast was amazing!

Birdbath Bakery {SoHo}

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

I really recommend staying downtown in New York City, as it is away from the shopping madness of midtown/uptown. You really get to feel like a New Yorker rather than a tourist. We frequented the Birdbath Bakery in the heart of SoHo for tea and muffins and it was fun watching the locals come in to grab their morning fix!

Birdbath Bakery is on the grounds of the former Vesuvio Bakery, a legendary, old, Italian family-run operation, with no new signage. So I almost missed it. Thank goodness for Maddie’s navigational skills.

Their muffins are something else. Our favourites were the Blueberry Cornmeal and the Raspberry Bran Muffin, and we sampled a few! We did try their famous cookies too and boy are they good – crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle. Just how a cookie should be.

Brooklyn Edible Social Club

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

After having eaten at Hidden Kitchen in Paris twice, I am hooked on the underground dining experience. I was sure New York would be in on the trend and was delighted to discover the Brooklyn Edible Social Club! Chef Andres, with a decade of fine dining experience (The French Laundry, Gordon Ramsay) and his partner a food loving designer, host a five-course dinner party featuring seasonal ingredients from local, responsible farms, in their eclectically decorated apartment.

It definitely was one of the highlights of our recent New York trip. We loved the fact that the other guests happened to be all New Yorkers, bar one. The conversations made us feel like we were in an episode of ‘Sex and the City’!

I’m salivating looking at these photo’s again, the food was amazing!
