I like making what I call cloud fritters every once in a while. Since they are fried, I tend to only make these for special occasions or when I want to treat myself. The first time I made these I thought that they looked like a puffy little cloud and I guess the name just stuck. I can not even remember the original name. I usually make whip up a batch of these when I have veggies that need to be used up or leftover ham but any meat you have on hand could be used.
Hello, my name is Pyxy, and I have a thing for food on a stick. I always have. And kebabs were something my mother made for dinner a lot growing up. I think it helped to make sure the kidlets had the same amount of food on their plates. And, no one could say "Johnny got more than me!" (names have been changed to protect the guilty, btw.)
Flourless Chocolate cake
My partner is an actor. Often - before Covid - he would perform in smaller venues. In fact he often performed in very intimate venues such as private homes. You do not get much more intimate than a performance at a private home! One of his last performances, took place on Victoria Day. And, to mark the occaission, he asked me to make one of his mother's recipes - a flourless chocolate cake. It turned out amazing and the other day, I stumbled across the recipe again. And, thought I would post it here for you to enjoy as much as we did.
There are some vegetables that are synonymous with Autumn. No, I am not talking about Pumpkin. Carrots, in my own humble opinion, are a great vegetable to eat year round but, especially in the fall. I suppose it may be the orange colouring but carrots have always reminded me of fall.
Rosemary Roasted Onions
Deciding on a main course is one thing. But, after that decision, comes another important decision - what to have with your main? Side dishes were invented to round out the meal. Otherwise, we would all be eating just protein. You need some vegetables and some starches to balance out a meal completely. Traditionally, your side dishes are made with certain vegetables. Carrots and potatoes anyone? That does get boring after a while. This recipe highlights onions in a very tasty way
Twice Baked Potatoes
I always thought twice baked potatoes would be hard to make. But, when I found this recipe, I realised that could not be further from the truth. Sometimes the end product can seem like it took forever to make because they look overly complicated and taste amazing. But looks can be deceiving. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for them to bake. The prep work actually does not take long at all
Chili Garlic Chicken
Ask anyone to say one thing about me and they will probably say that I like my food spicy. VERY spicy. I do not have much of a sweet tooth at all, but give me a bottle of Sriracha and I am a happy girl. I have been known to go through one of the smallish bottles of Sriracha in just over a week. Spicy and savoury trump sweet flavours for me, no question.
Lamb Shanks and Tomatoes
My partner loves loves LOVES lamb. But, as it can be quite expensive, we only have it on special occasions and even then about once every few years. And, last Easter I happened upon this amazing recipe. It is a little different than the recipe we usually use - one of their mother's recipes. But, I can tell you, it went over quite well.
The Best Brisket Ever
I fully admit that I am a wine drinker. It is my usual drink of choice when I am not making martinis, olde fashioneds and a cocktail called a Kenyan on safari. I can post the recipes for all but the Kenyan on Safari as I was given the recipe by the owner of a lovely place in Winnipeg called "The Amsterdam." If you are interested in a gin and earl grey based iced tea, then by all means stop by and ask for one. It is well worth it.
