LEEK, MUSHROOM & CORN STRATA

There’s not much cooking one can do with a newborn around. OR SO THEY SAY. (There’s not much of anything else that one can do with a newborn around but I digress.) It’s hard no doubt, and unless you prefer pottering about the kitchen to taking a nap when you get a few minutes to… Read more »

CINNAMON SUGAR FRENCH TOAST + MACERATED PLUM COMPOTE

I’m not even going to try and justify the fact that I’m back with another French toast recipe. It means something when I push it five times, and then there’s this – this weekly occurrence. Not one bit sorry though, in fact so far from it that I’m seriously contemplating listing ‘French toast’ as a… Read more »

CHIPOTLE BLACK BEAN SLOPPY JOES

Sloppy joes and burgers. Although both use meat, vegetables, beans or a combination as their base and both are served on buns, their similarities end there. Sloppy joes are cooked in a sauce—the consistency is that of a thick bolognese—while burgers are formed into patties. Burger patties usually rely on binding agents like eggs and… Read more »

UPSIDE DOWN CRANBERRY-ORANGE FRENCH TOAST

What I’ve also found is… Read more »

If you haven’t put it together yet—I’m a French toast junkie. Not only are they ridiculously simple to throw together, they are versatile too. Use any fruit that’s in season, switch up the spices, and it’s one of those dishes that’s comforting and easy to do while at the same time giving you something new… Read more »

ASIAN BEEF BURGERS

Sweet and spicy Asian beef burgers? Spicy, sticky Asian beef burgers? Asian beef burgers with a sticky sauce? I basically considered all the possible permutations before settling on ‘Asian beef burgers’. This minimalism thing works for me in completely disjointed ways. I have a confession. I don’t post recipes on here that I haven’t tried… Read more »

Banana bread

I know it’s starting to look like a blog revolving around bananas around here. Stuffed banana peppers two weeks ago, and now it’s banana bread. I seem to be going bananas with this stuff! I know, not very ap-peeling and maybe we should split from this unplanned theme, but it’s almost as if someone’s plantain… Read more »
