stone -ground flour wraps

David bought me this amazing recipe book for Christmas, “Real food, Healthy, happy children. The Low Carb Solution For the Whole Family by Kath Megaw. What I really like about this recipe book is that it’s all about eating healthy, natural foods which are really yummy instead of processed food. The other night we decided to make some stone-ground flour wraps. I always thought wraps would be complicated to make, but I was wrong for thinking this. It’s a lot easier and quicker than I thought it would be. I asked David to do the mixing because I wasn’t to […]

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 […]

Chocolate Crunchies

A little bit of crazy_In the kitchen_crunchie recipe

I attempted to make chocolate chip crunchies last night. The chocolate melted and turned them into crunchies with a hint of chocolate but after a quick taste test this morning by David and myself the general consensus is that they are yummy. Earlier this week I told David that I would make some crunchies without realising how busy this week was going to turn out to be so last night at 9pm I started making crunchies… thank goodness the recipe I found on Sam Linsell’s blog was super easy and quick to make. I just added the chocolate chips at the […]

Banoffee Pie

It was my beautiful and super talented friend’s birthday last week. Zulfa also decided on a tea party for her 30th and when I offered to make something she asked me to make a Banoffee pie. Before this conversation with her I had never heard of a Banoffee pie, so I asked her for a recipe. She sent me one from the Nestle Carnation website. Making a banoffee pies was quite hard for me mostly because I am not a fan of sugar cookery, but all in this was a fun recipe to try even though my pie did not come out quite […]

Sometimes it’s okay to cheat a little…

a little bit of crazy

Cake is taken very seriously in our office… so seriously that you can’t just bring the average cake when it’s your birthday. The standard was set way before I started working here and I think it’s best to just stick with the standard. It was my birthday on the 13th, which was a Saturday so I chose the Thursday after my birthday to bring cake. When deciding on what type of cake to bring, I tossed the idea of buying a cake from somewhere or making one around in my head. Buying a cake is never guaranteed greatness but neither is […]

2 ingredient chocolate tart

a little bit of crazy chocolate tart

I found this super quick two ingredient chocolate tart recipe on Food24 about two weeks ago. I’ve made it twice now and it’s pretty flop proof. What I like about it is that you can use white, milk or dark chocolate for it, it’s quick and very easy. It’s also banting, so if you have friends who don’t eat carbs you can make this for tea when they come over. Ingredients 4 eggs separated 180g chocolate, (white, milk or dark) What to do I used Lint dark chocolate when I made it so it wasn’t too sweet. Preheat oven to […]

Creamy Chicken Pasta

A little bit of Crazy

Last weekend I was feeling a bit adventurous in the kitchen so I decided to make something with what we had in the fridge. I was going to make carbonara but  changed my mind because I wanted something different. I knew I had to use the cream we had because it was about to go off, so I kind of went with it and added a bunch of random stuff. It turned out amazing! Ingredients two chicken breasts – cut into cubes 250ml cream 1 small onion diced 1 clove garlic crushed +/- 10 baby tomatoes halved half a punnet […]

The MOST amazing burgers ever!

A little bit of crazy

David has always been really good at making burgers, but last night he took it to a whole new level of awesomeness.  I messaged him in the afternoon and asked him what he wanted for supper and he replied “banting burgers”. I then suggested we try using those giant mushrooms as buns. When we skip the roll we often just use lettuce and it’s often so disappointing. It’s also like we’re just eating meat balls and lettuce for supper. He totally agreed and went to the shop to get these giant mushrooms.  I got to help with the putting together […]

White fish fillets with apple sauce

A little bit of crazy in the kitchen

David bought me this recipe book, (Traditional Cooking Vorarlberg: The region’s best original recipes by Hubert Krenn VerlagsgesmbH)  while he was in Austria last month. It has some yummy recipes in it, as well as a few strange ones. I was feeling a bit creative in the cooking area so I asked David to pick out a recipe for me to try and he chose this one: White fish fillets with apple horseradish sauce. I don’t like horseradish so I left it out. Ingredients 8 – 12 white fish fillets, (I used hake) salt, pepper Lemon juice butter one apple […]

Curry seed soup sprinkle

Curry soup sprinkle katherine bodmer

When it comes to a “topping” for soup I always think of either croutons or cream, which isn’t very creative.  While paging through the June copy of Pick ‘n Pay’s Fresh Living magazine I found something fun to try, a curry seed sprinkle. When I saw that it had pumpkin seeds in it I thought it would be perfect for the soup I was making, my pumpkin and zucchini soup. You need; 2 tsp olive oil 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds 1 Tbsp sesame and sunflower seeds 1/2 Tbsp curry powder (I used mild) 1 disc of feta – crumbed   […]
