10 Minute Meal. Thermomix Okonomiyaki

by Dani

I had plans for a glorious meal tonight. Pork Siew Yuk, rice, vegetable stir fry. I’ve spent most of today salivating at the thought. Unfortunately, the pork did not defrost in time. In fact, I cannot recall the last time I saw a piece of meat defrost quite so slowly. As I type it is […]

Cheap and cheerful vegetarian feast

by Dani

This would easily serve 6 – 8. The accompaniments are essential, the rice and lentils alone would be far too bland. Besides, lots of little dishes on the table to help yourself from is always fun. Whilst there are lots of ingredients, it’s quite quick and easy to throw together. Adapted from a Charmaine Solomon […]

Slow Cooker. Cheese and Two Potato Soup

by Dani

The Kitchen Playground method of surviving the school term with a working mother is to use school holidays to do some bulk cooking. The idea is that I will end up wit lots of baked goods for lunches and enough precooked meals to get me through the nights that we get home late. These school […]

Vegetable, Herb and Feta Cannelloni

by Dani

I’m such a creature of habit in my old age. Changes to my routine, particularly where food is concerned tend leave me a little disoriented. Having to complete a 24 hour training course at work in 2 days and one evening last weekend thoroughly discombobulated me. No farmers market! Fortunately I had stocked up as […]

Broad Bean and Feta Risotto

by Dani

Being Sunday, it’s First Born’s turn to cook. Tonight, he has whipped up a broad bean and feta risotto in the thermomix. I can’t say it often enough, the thermomix is absolutely brilliant for teaching children to cook. The risotto was fantastic and First Born was very proud of himself. As well he should be. […]

Buddhist Monk’s Soup (Canh Kiem)

by Dani

Take 1 Buddhist Monk, slice thinly, simmer gently until tender… OK, sorry, in our family that is known as Graeme humour. You can blame my dear old Dad. This is a soup I’ve been meaning to try for many years. Finally, it’s time has come and it smells delicious. Just need the Ankle Biters and […]

Satisfaction Soup, from one depression era to another.

by Dani

This soup is a ‘Nana from the depression era’ soup. Incredibly simple and cheap to make with more flavour than the ingredients would suggest. It’s a good one for fussy kids too. Unless you’ve got one of those spoiled, expensive menfolk who insist on a slab of meat at each meal, this makes a hearty […]

Silverbeet and Lime Soup

by Dani

It’s school holidays here at the moment. Glorious school holidays. Today, the Ankle Biters had some friends over and I got to enjoy the adult company of their respective mothers. One of the mums has coeliac disease so I took the easy way and made soup for the grown up lunch. The tricky part was […]

Soup to chase the head cold away.

by Dani

So much for swine flu, there’s a head cold doing the rounds of Melbourne which is intensely irritating. It’s swept though chez KP leaving a trail of snot and grumpiness behind it. I decided to chase it away tonight with a very vegetable soup. I made it in the thermomix but it could easily be […]

Dinner and dessert on our 13th anniversary

by Dani

A few people have asked me lately if I’ve quit blogging. Which is a fair question. No I haven’t. I just lost my blogging mojo, got out of the routine and have struggled to slot it back into my daily tasks. In fact daily is really just asking too much these days but I would […]
