Scientifically special Korean fried chicken wings

I was going to call this post ‘Scientifically perfect Korean fried chicken wings’ but perfection when it comes to food is often subjective. I was, however, suitably impressed by how much time and effort the fellow who came up with this specific recipe put into the trial and error of determining the best combination of…

Pulled pork and slaw rolls

Who doesn’t love them? We recently smoked an extra pork shoulder at our BBQ so we could have a stockpile of pulled pork for various uses on hand. What better way to put it to use but in a fresh fluffy white roll with home made coleslaw. The coleslaw got the thumbs up. My taller…

Meals in the madness

The last month has been pretty busy so I thought I’d cheat and pop up some of the on-the-go stuff that I’ve made during this time. My taller half dreamed of having chicken sausages for breakfast. He was actually sleep talking about it and I had a strange sleep-talky conversation with him and decided to…

Trio of sliders

First of all I am very excited as I have finally found a source of slider buns. Hooray. Sliders make so much sense to me. I mean why would you have just one large burger in one flavour when you can have three small ones in three different flavours? I’ve been on a mission to…

Mediterranean vegetables and roast lamb

When you’ve got your head deep in the books your oven can become your best friend. It’s an amazing addition to any kitchen that you can more or less throw things into and they come out not only ready to eat, but tasting truly divine. I threw some chopped sweet potato, kipfler potatoes, tomatoes, spanish…

Sometimes it doesn’t have to be hard

Simple doesn’t have to lack flavour, freshness or interest. This is an example of me on the fly, sans time yet still desiring food with flavour. 1 ocean trout fillet 1 teaspoon smoked garlic salt (buy some or make some, it’s my new best friend) Spinach from the garden Congo potatoes (I have a massive…

Mexican madness

I love our home made Mexican food. Despite the Mexican food wave sweeping the Australian landscape, the stuff we make at home comes the closest to satisfying the desire we have for the flavours we had in Mexico. Now the problem with being too busy to post some of these recipes when we actually made…

Spanish countryside?

I’m dying to go to Spain and eat. Western Europe has never been high on my travel agenda but oh how I would love to just go to Spain and eat. I think this meal would make a Spaniard proud. The salad in particular is a Spanish salad I observed on a random cooking show…

Chicken and Shiitake mushroom dumplings

I adore dumplings. Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Eastern European. I could never be accused of being a dumplingist. I love them all… but… I have never made my own. This is a pretty basic recipe and quick. Super quick. Admittedly I cheated and didn’t make my own wrappers but the ones I bought from one of…
