Chicken, rice and lentil tortillas

by Dani

While I haven’t been blogging, I have been reading blogs. There are so many blogs about frugal food coming out of the US its crazy. Much of it is food I wouldn’t feed my dog but there are some great ideas, based on real food. This recipe for an inexpensive meat substitute for tacos is […]

Honey, Coconut and Lemon Muffins (gluten free)

by Dani

I’m going through one of my frenzies of cleaning out the fridge and pantry. Every now and again I seem to get a build up of obscure ingredients and just before Christmas when I’m trying to save money is a great time to use them all up. Not only does it tidy up the cupboards […]

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. […]

Grilled Trout & Steamed Vegetable Salad

by Dani

    The end of spring in Melbourne has been scorchingly hot. Which I am absolutely relishing. I love both the warmth and the complete transformation of our meals into the wonderful world of salads.

    by Dani

    At the very start of winter, I made a massive big pot of minestrone, or what passes for it in this house, I don’t stick to a traditional recipe. This week, we finished it. So today I made another pot. When I say massive, I am referring to my industrial size stock pot, the capacity […]

    Simple, cheap and delicious

    Sometimes, the simplest of meals receives the highest accolades. Tonight was one of those nights. Some simple little prawn and potato patties made from $3 of prawns and 3 potatoes with a simple lemon chive sauce and a mound of steamed vegetables. The family feed for just under $6 and the plates licked clean. There […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
