Cheesy cauliflower breadsticks

a little bit of crazy in the kitchen

While scrolling through Pinterest as one does one afternoon I stumbled on a link to a great cooking website called Jo Cooks. On her website I found a recipe for cheesy cauliflower bread. When I saw that it was similar to making a cauliflower pizza base I was a bit disheartened. We tried this before and we were not successful. After some thought I decided to give it a try. I also needed to make something to go with the ratatouille I was making. The recipe is pretty easy and the end result is quite yummy. Next time I’ll use […]

Ratatouille

When I saw it in this AMAZING recipe book called Harvest, that I took out from the library I was like, “yes – this will be made for supper tonight”. What you need 8 courgettes, (baby marrows) 3 medium onions, (I sued one – not a fan of too much onion) 10 tomatoes 2  large peppers 1  bouquet garni, (I had no idea what this was so I used about a handful of basil and thyme instead) 4 cloves garlic Olive oil What to do Peel and slice the […]

Nomu Flourless Chocolate Tart

Chocolate tart recipe

On Saturday night my girlfriends and I had a Galentines day dinner and I made a chocolate tart by NoMU. When I started making it I thought it was the other chocolate tart that I make – my two ingredient chocolate tart. I should have realized they were different recipes since this one had more than two ingredients. I only noticed when I was mixing in the eggs that it was different. Here’s the recipe for the one I made this weekend. You will need 60g unsalted butter 200g NoMU Hot Chocolate Chunks – I used 300g dark chocolate 5 large […]

Camembert, lemon and garlic fish

Last night I think I created quite the flavour explosion with supper. It was also a very experimental cooking experience as I opened the fridge and thought… “I wonder if this will work with this”. I was quite surprised that it worked and tasted amazing. Here’s what I did.   I defrosted two hake fillets and placed them on some tin foil. I sprinkled some salt onto the fillets then layered some sliced lemons on top with some sliced garlic and Camembert. I topped it off with a sprinkling of Nomu fish spice. I then wrapped it up in a […]

Strawberry and mint ice lollies

A little bit of crazy ice lolly recipe

I’m VERY excited to post this recipe! On a summers day there is nothing nicer than ice cold ice lolly. I LOVE ice-cream, but I prefer eating it in winter so it doesn’t melt everywhere leaving you with sticky hands and a thirst that only a river of water can quench. I really enjoy eating ice lollies in summer as I find them more refreshing than ice-cream. I Googled recipes for ice lollies and I never really found one I liked or the ones I did like they needed me to add something I didn’t really have at home when […]

Austrian Hake Recipe

Katherine Bodmer Blog A little bit of crazy

Yesterday when I asked David what he would like for supper he said, “let’s look in the Austrian recipe book”. I opened the book and while paging through it a fish recipe jumped out at me. I then “Katherine-ised” it a bit. In other words, edited the recipe a bit and added my own flavour as well. Ingredients I bought some frozen hake steaks and used four as they were quite small. (I have no idea what Zander is, besides a fish and Pick ‘n Pay never had any. Hake also worked really well) A handful of spinach – I […]

“Spaghetti” bolognese – The LCHF version

Instead of eating pasta we usually use zoodles, which is grated zucchini so it looks like spaghetti. I got a bit over it and wanted to try something different so I tried cabbage instead. When I mentioned this to David he was very hesitant. Cabbage is pretty gross – it brings up images of it being steamed to a green slimy mush. I have discovered a yummy way of making it – frying it in butter. I did this to make the “spaghetti” part of the meal. For the bolognese part you need; 1 x mince meat punnet 1 x […]

Lemon and mint chicken

The other day I had some excess mint in the fridge and some lemons. I had also taken chicken out for supper. I decided to try putting all three ingredients together to see if they would work together and they did. In a blender/chopper thing put about a handful of mint leaves, coriander seeds, salt and pepper with lemon juice from one lemon. Blend/chop for a few seconds until chopped. Pan fry chicken breasts in some coconut oil until slightly brown before adding the mint and lemon juice mixture. Cook until ready. I think it took about 15 or 20 […]

Racing cars

This weekend we got invited to Durick’s first birthday. It was such an honor to be invited to his party and to apart of the celebration on Saturday. After I received the invitation I messaged his mom, Vanessa and asked if she would like me to make something and when she said yes I decided on racing cars. All first, second and third birthdays should have these at them… even when you’re an adult. I think I’ll talk David into having a racing car themed birthday next year so I can make them again. You will need jelly babies or […]
