Veggie-Full Beef Burgers

We’re trying to pack veggies in all over the place. I shared how we added veggies into our bolognese a couple of weeks ago. We made these burgers and they were probably the best burger patties I’ve ever made. Now I’m not going to add the recipe because I didn’t measure anything. But I really wantContinue reading “Veggie-Full Beef Burgers”

An almost free dinner

I’m bursting with pride. Am I allowed to write that? Tonight Jay cooked a dinner that cost us less than a $1 for all 3 serves. When I was writing our meal plan this fortnight I added a Jamie Olive dish in haste. I knew a lot of the ingredients were in season and IContinue reading “An almost free dinner”

Lazy Lady’s Frittata

We got home from camping at 2pm Saturday, we’d been in the car since 10am and we spent an hour unpacking. The last thing I wanted to do was to cook dinner. We could have ordered take away but honestly I couldn’t be bothered competing with the tourists in our town for fish and chips,Continue reading “Lazy Lady’s Frittata”

Asian Chicken and Vegetable Soup

There’s a pox on our house. I swear, we’ve done something and I can’t figure out what it is. I had tonsillitis, now Jay has tonsillitis and Elliot’s got full on snot, so much so that his nose is bleeding from all the wiping. I shared this on Instagram and the absolutely lovely Megann fromContinue reading “Asian Chicken and Vegetable Soup”

“I feel like Chicken Tonight, like Chicken Tonight” I remember running around the house singing these words when we were having sweet and sour chicken when I was a kid. Regardless of the brand of sweet sticky sauce, we would dance and sing these add lyrics. I loved this dinner. I’ve recently started cooking sweetContinue reading “Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe”

Cauliflower Soup with Chorizo Croutons

I was so relieved to sit down to a bowl of this delicious comforting cauliflower soup for lunch today. I crisped up the last of the chorizo croutons in the fry pan and let out a big sigh as I nestled into the couch.

Best Veggie Pattie Ever

I mentioned in this fortnight’s meal plan that we’d having veggie patties this week, and that I’d share the recipe with you. It’s delicious, easy and a great one for doubling the recipe, making heaps and freezing for later. I also mentioned in that I first had these patties the night after our wedding. We hadContinue reading “Best Veggie Pattie Ever”

Romtertopf Roast Chicken

I got given a Romertopf for my birthday last year. I was so happy to have received it but I was totally overwhelmed by having absolutely no idea as to how to use the bloody thing. J dove in to our first attempt at cooking in it and well, it wasn’t great. It was a soggy messContinue reading “Romtertopf Roast Chicken”
