Some easy peasy danishes I whipped up today which were so good I wanted to post a recipe so I could make them again.
We’ve been living on this all summer – spicy and delicious, it’s super easy to put together earlier in the day then you get to just pour it into a bowl and enjoy it for dinner.
This is so exciting I thought it well worth while coming back to blogging after a bit of a break.
Everten, an Australian home goods and kitchenware company I often shop from, recently offered me a free product to review for free and I chose this baby – how lucky am I?! So I promptly made a deliciously tender and flavourful shredded chicken, which is super easy to throw together in this wonderful cooker.
I recommend making more than you need when shredding chicken, as it should last in the fridge for a few days and can be used on sandwiches and salads for lunches and things.
The Cuisinart 3 in 1 houses three components in one package – it steams, browns and slow cooks and is a breeze to use. You can make anything from curries to cheesecake and it’s great to use in those warmer months when you don’t feel like turning on the oven. This is a large cooker suitable for a decent sized family, is fully programmable and the inner pot washes easily. If you’re into slow cooking and like the idea of throwing something together in the morning for dinner, then this is for you.
Thanks so much Everten for this great opportunity.
So onto the recipe!
Ok this is pretty gorgeous you guys.
The fragrant, slightly floral tea flavoured cake with thick, sweet honey icing is lovely. I made 2 mini layer cakes but you could easily make this in a loaf tin or round standard sized tin.
I made this impromptu soup today and it was so lovely; thick, creamy, rich, full of vegies yet surprisingly low in calories.
This pretty cake is simple with only a few ingredients but turned out fluffy and soft with a great banana flavour. A pretty dusting of snowy icing sugar makes it perfect for tea time.
Singapore noodles are one of my favourite things to eat; this dish was always something I’d buy as take away years ago if I felt like something spicy. I’ve never made it though! So last night I gave it a go and it was delicious.
I know, I sound like a complete knob asking people to use organic stoneground unbleached freshly milled plain flour but the reason for that is that I accidently purchased some online, thinking it was just regular old plain flour.
Anyway, if you manage to get your hands on it, it’s a lovely, healthy flour which I recommend for rustic muffins/loaf/cake type things (you wouldn’t make a sponge cake or cuppies with it). These autumn inspired muffins turned out soft and fluffy, gorgeous with butter and a cup of tea for breakfast this morning.
In saying all that, you can use whatever flour you like but I’d replace around 1/2 a cup of it with wheat germ or oat bran just to up the health factor a bit.
I think I must be quite mad because I made this on new year’s day for new year’s dinner – one of the hottest nights of the year quite possibly! Anyway, obviously something stuffed full of meatballs, gnocchi, cherry toms and cheese baked in the oven is going to be wonderfully decadent. We added a crusty baguette with lashings of butter and pretended it was autumn (thank god for air con).
These are brilliant and so easy to make – I just made a bunch for new year’s to have with drinks. You could easily add different flavours to your liking (chilli & sweetcorn, feta and roast pumpkin, just for example).
You can store them in the fridge for a few days for lunches too.
