Shaved cauliflower salad Dine in

For me to enjoy having a salad (and especially a vegetarian salad!) as a main meal, it needs to be seriously delicious. This salad was exactly that. A Mandoline slicer will be your friend so this salad a cinch to make. We demolished it in no time, so is definitely good as a meal on its own or you could serve it as a side dish if you wish. I think it would be lovely packed for a picnic to enjoy the gentle winter sun, the salad can soften in the dressing for a while no trouble! Ingredients 1/4 head...

Do you want hot buns? Dine in

Easter is the time of year for traditional hot cross buns – despite Woolworths and Coles stocking them as soon as the Christmas decorations are removed. I boycott buying them until April! Or, you can make them yourself! I cooked these buns this morning, and they were delicious. Stu told me so at least 3 times in between mouthfuls of hot, butter soaked bread. Baking bread makes me feel really clever and accomplished and this recipe is easy so I can pass that same feeling on to you. I didn’t bother piping a cross on the top or glazing these as per the...

A friend’s mum made it at a party years ago and I only just asked for the recipe, wish I had asked sooner! I made a few tweaks and this the result....

Satay chicken and vegetable stirfry Dine in

We were counting down the days to our trip to Vanuatu so I was in operation Fridge Clean Out mode and eating what we had so nothing went to waste. While riding home from work I was trying to figure out what we could have for dinner as the options were dwindling… but then I remembered I had a trusty can of Ayam satay sauce in the cupboard! Another reason for always having one in your pantry – instant flavour. I had a pile of vegetables in the fridge and a chicken breast in the freezer, along with a packet of...

Ode to satay sauce Dine in

This post (and one to come) are an ode to satay sauce. Specifically Ayam brand satay sauce. It’s delicious and I highly recommend you seek it out from your local Asian grocer (I can’t usually find it in the supermarket) and keep it as a cupboard staple. Today’s dish is Indonesian gado gado, a room temperature salad made with a variety of  lightly steamed vegetables alongside the necessary boiled egg, sambal and prawn crackers. The simplicity of the salad is the secret, along with a very decent satay sauce (you can make your own with this recipe if you’re keen!)...
