Video: Italian Quesadillas

We’re loving the fusion theme at the moment, and so these Italian quesadillas came to mind. We started with the basic idea of the Insalata Caprese: a salad which is meant to represent the colours of the Italian flag. Red tomatoes, white mozzarella, and green basil are a staple of this dish.

Mexican bowls

This week we’re sharing one of our all-time perennial favourites. The Mexican bowl is pretty much a staple of our diet: it’s easy to make, tastes fantastic, and is also very satisfying without being too unhealthy.

There’s a lot of components to the bowl that you can mix and match as you like. We always have home-made nachos to start with around the edge. This time we’ve added a black bean mix to the middle, but there are other possibilities too.

This week we’ve got something super special. These pizza pockets are about to blow your mind.

Almondies

This week we have something of an invention to share with: almondies, or almond blondies! We found a dessert in Canterbury which went by that name, and was delicious. This is not that dessert, and doesn’t even look remotely like it. Still, it’s a blondie packed full of almonds, so the name fits pretty well!

Chinese duck

For this week’s recipe, we wanted to do something a little different. We came up with a fusion of two of our favourite cuisines:  Chinese fajitas.

This is a pretty fun meal to make, all the more so because it’s totally unexpected. But if you can make duck pancakes, we figured you can also make duck fajitas. And why shouldn’t satay sauce go with black beans? As it turns out, it does – very nicely indeed.

Video: French Onion Soup

This is definitely one of my favourite recipes to make recently. Who would have thought that simple French onion soup could be so good? After all, it’s basically just onions… but somehow it magically transforms through cooking into something delicious and mouth-watering.

Video: Mash-topped Mushroom and Swede Pie

Mash-topped mushroom and celeriac pie

This mushroom and swede pie is one of those classic cases where you start off with one thing and end up with another. This pie was originally going to be done to a recipe I had found, but with the one change of taking off the pastry and using mash as a topping instead. Then I realised I didn’t have some of the ingredients. I ordered celeriac,  but swede came instead. And after a while, I ended up making something that was totally different to what I intended – but almost certainly better.

Video: Leek and Feta Fritters

This week I have some completely delicious leek and feta fritters to bring your way. These are SO GOOD that I made some for J to eat later when he came home from a night out and I ate most of those too (sorry!).

There’s a lot of oil involved in this one, and it’s very rare that I cook with oil at all, let alone in this kind of quantity. But the end result is worth it – trust me. If you’re worried about adding calories with the fritters soaked in oil, then make sure to drain them off on paper towels before putting them in the oven – and you can do it again before serving if you feel it’s necessary.
