MOF MOF Pumpkin Soup

My dad recently introduced us to the Two Greedy Italians series.  The Two Greedy Italians consist of Gennaro Contaldo and Antonio Carluccio, two prominent Italian chefs from the UK.  Each episode in this series is spent in a different town in Italy, eating and cooking the local delicacies as well as mixing with the local people all while they continually bait each other like teenage boys and reminisce of what Italy was like when they were children.  It really is food porn for Italian food lovers.

Crunchy granola – I’ll have a double please

So I made my own granola, yeah I did and it was a sad and happy occasion.  Happy because it was sooo gooood, sad because I hadn’t discovered this recipe earlier.  As I’m writing this, my belly is aching a little…I think I overdid it slightly with the granola but that’s how addictive it is – but I’m sure the rest of you have more strength than I do.  I think if the Dr had come home while I was baking the granola he would have thought that I was possessed, I was crouched down in front of the oven door inhaling the granola fumes, almost ripping the oven door off the oven.  Good lord.

Tuna zuke-don – marinated tuna on rice

Feel like sushi at home but don’t have the 8-10 years to put aside to train to become a sushi chef? I have a super duper easy recipe for you!  This is pretty much deconstructed sushi with marinated tuna sitting on top of a bed of rice.  In japanese, zuke means to soak or marinate and don is short for donburi and all you need to know about that word is if you see it on a menu, it means awesome.  Ok seriously, literally it means ‘bowl’ but essentially any dish with the word ‘don’ on the end means deliciousness on a bed of rice.  Katsu-don (crumbed pork cutlet on rice with tonkatsu sauce), gyu-don (marinated beef on rice), oyako-don (marinated chicken and egg on rice).  Any questions?

Tomato and ricotta tartine

So I’ve worked out over the years that people sit in one of two buckets.  They either love leftovers or they’re just not that into it.  Unless I’ve cooked a dish that I absolutely love or something that actually gets better with time, I sit in the latter bucket.

I say Shakshuka you say Eggs in Purgatory

Often I have those nights when the Dr is working and I’m on my own and I cannot even contemplate making a proper dinner but I gotta eat because I’m hungry.  This is where breakfast for dinner comes in (or brinner as I have now decided to call it).  Usually I end up either with a bowl of cereal or an omelette or scrambled eggs…until I made this.  This is incredibly flavourful, awesome if you’re muffintop is starting to creep back and so quick to make (tick-tick-tick), that I made it 3 times in the past week-uh huh, yep, 3 times and the 3rd time I made it when the Dr was home, this is what happened (see below).

Deliciously creamy mushroom risotto

When it’s cold and dreary outside there are some dishes that make you feel like you’re sitting by a crackling fire enveloped in a big soft blanket or if you’re lucky to have one, a doona/duvet/comforter suit.  Say wha?  People, someone has taken the snuggie to the next level and invented the doona suit.  Probably the most unsexy outfit I have ever seen in my life but who cares when you can walk around feeling like you’re still in the comfort and warmth of your bed!
