Chinese style lamb and tofu stew

by Dani

The old saying says that necessity is the mother of invention. Tonight at the Kitchen Playground, it was necessary to use up some leftover (homemade) tofu and some leftover roast lamb. The result was a simple and tasty little dish that would work just as well with uncooked lamb, just increase the cooking time slightly […]

Carrot & Corn Pikelets.

by Dani

Once a week I like to gather¬†any scraps of food that have accumulated throughout the week to cook into something else to avoid wastage. All that today’s clean yielded was half a cup of corn and carrot salad, 1/3 cup grated cheese and 3 egg whites. Just enough to make lunch for two or three […]

Beating the lunch blues, bento style.

by Dani

Now that both First Born and Lil Miss are at school, I am working close to full time. Which means that I am making packed lunches for the whole family five days a week, no more nicking home at lunch time for a few crackers, cheese and tomato for me! The main problem with this […]

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 […]

A summer’s day in mid-spring and a spring vegetable quiche

by Dani

Today was 30 degrees. That’s 86 if you speak Farenheit. It’s going to be a long hot summer. Which prompted me to make a summery meal. Well that and the fact that I had nothing planned, some scraps that needed using, lunches to make, no bread and not a lot of time on my hands.¬† […]

Filo or Phyllo … you be the judge

by Dani

However you like to spell it, I love the stuff. You can pretty much shove anything inside a bit of filo and it tastes fantastic and looks good. What else could you do with 300g mince, one serve leftover kale risotto, 1 small bunch kale, 6 Brussel sprouts, starting to look spotty, 1 small carrot, […]

More creative fridge cleaning

by Dani

I absolutely had to finish that colcannon tonight. I don’t like the way potato freezes. Plus I have a strange aversion to serving up leftovers in their original state. So I needed an idea that would work well with a potato mash, bearing in mind I made a potato dough with some yesterday. That left […]
