Chicken, Yoghurt & Burghul Soup with Lemon, Chilli & Coriander

by Dani

School holidays are upon us and I am taking great delight in being home long enough to play in the kitchen. There simply isn’t enough time for that during term anymore. Part of the fun is my annual cookbook and recipe cull. As I am hoping that a move will be on the cards within […]

Tell me about your Sunday roast

by Dani

I do wish that didn’t make me think of Nicole and Keith’s baby. Really, did they not test the name out from every angle or did they just not care? Anyhoo, ‘nough ’bout that. Sunday roast can be a variable thing in our house. No firm favourites, no set tradition. Tonight, it’s roast chook. One […]

But Mum, pancakes are for breakfast!

by Dani

Son and Heir is all about learning how the world works and how things are structured. Deviances from structure are looked upon with deep suspicion. Night is dark, day is light and pancakes are for breakfast. Well why have kids if you can’t mess with their heads? A girl’s got to have some fun. Pancakes […]

Moroccan Chicken

by Dani

If you adapt an adaptation, how do you know if you just recreated the original? Assuming of course that you haven’t seen the original. Highly unlikely in this instance but it’s something to think about nonetheless. Or not. As you choose. Steamy Kitchen’s Jaden adapted this from Cooking Light The Complete Cook Book. I adapted […]

Hainan Chicken and Rice

by Dani

Tonight we are eating Hainan chicken and rice. I made all three sauces to go with it. Sadly I have no cilantro, nor do I have enough cucumber left to garnish. Steamed broccoli with a dash of oyster sauce will do nicely as a side dish. The cost of tonight’s meal? I bought the chicken […]

The long and the short of it.

by Dani

Left over pho noodles. Mmm, something long soup like. Leftover wonton wrappers. Mmm, something short soup like. Or both together. That’s pretty much how my brain works. And reckless abandon week seems to be having more than it’s fair share at the moment. Which is cool. So, fish stock from the freezer, a couple of […]

Cider roasted chicken with potatoes, turnip, apple, garlic and sage

by Dani

This is an adaptation of a spatchcock recipe from the 2007 Annual Gourmet Travellers Cook Book. Conceptually, I love spatchcock but the reality of all those teeny tiny bones, particularly with Ankle Biters at the dinner table puts me off. I remember in my younger child free days having a dinner party one night for […]

Grilled Chicken

by Dani

I’ve been neglecting Into the Vietnamese Kitchen of late due to holidays and the need to clean out the freezer. I couldn’t neglect it any longer though, I was missing those heavenly flavours. So tonight, we had had the grilled chicken with salt pepper and lime dipping sauce served western style with a simple green […]
