http://abcmovers.net/37631-betnovate-n-price.html Hi friends. I have a recipe for you tonight. A really great one! How has your week been? Tremendously long and brief at the same time, like mine? I must confess, by 4 o’clock this afternoon I had retreated to my bed. Luckily after a few hours of reading a new book and dozing, Row arrived home with a little bag of chocolate eggs for me. He knows how to please me. And so, several chocolates later I’m on the up and writing this post for you. It has all the best things in it. This is my favourite sort of meal. It’s like a really boss salad, packed with flavour and my best friend the kidney bean. It’s vegetarian, requires minimal cooking (lots of raw goodness) and contains no gluten (check specific ingredients). Those things were all happy accidents though, it’s actually just super yummy. The recipe looks long but it’s really simple, just a bit of slicing and dicing! Let’s get to it.

Zucchini Fritters

http://sareefergen.biz/38373-lamisil-price.html dissect Fritters

http://signpunk.com/13218-bactroban-cream-price.html Hello. Well look, it’s already Wednesday again. We’re barreling straight into autumn and I’m not remotely prepared. This autumn is going to be an interesting one! The most interesting yet. On the 11th of June, I’m going to board a plane and fly to Germany. Autumn means preparation. It also means shorter days and cooler nights, Easter, Rowan’s trip away, the first two uni papers of the year. This is is how it goes. But, first, it’s still basically summer and that means one thing: an endless supply of zucchinis. My mum has been picking 5 zucchinis a day from her garden all summer. The surplus gets sent in my direction. These fritters have been on constant rotation. They use up zucchinis (3 per batch!), they taste grand, they’re easy. I kind of just flung this recipe together with a bit of experimentation and on-hand ingredients. Try it?

Tzatziki [One Simple Thing]

TzatzikiOne of my goals in 2015 is to be more aware of the small things that make up the big picture. I quite firmly believe that it’s the moments, the simple things that make life special, that make you happy. Sometimes I will write about these things on the blog. Today is a double-header – I’m sharing a recipe and one simple thing that I love: free range mint (for want of the correct term.)

Simple Ways with Beans, Carrots and Tomatoes (Hey Summer!)

DSC_0118

Let’s be honest, this is the best time of year, veg-wise. Everything seems to be in abundance, we’re watching our tomatoes change daily, and you could build your dinner around what grows outside. There are MANY recipes – an endless supply, really – to choose from but sometimes simple wins out (it’s my mantra). Don’t get me wrong, I love a good meal-in-one salad (like this) or a curry that celebrates a host of ingredients. But I also like easy. This year my foodie mission is to go in search of simple food that requires little time, no recipes, no extra trips to the supermarket. Food that celebrates the basics: good ingredients. Here are three simple ‘foodie pairings’ that we have been munching on.

(Seriously Fast) Garden Stir-Fry with Noodles

DSC_0071

Yesterday my blog turned one year old! All grown up! So I will tell you the story of this delicious and really speedy stir-fry. We make stir-fry fairly regularly because it’s so simple. One night a few weeks ago, I was about to make a stir-fry for dinner when I remembered the rice. Oh rice. I love you but must you take so long to cook (we eat brown rice). Then after clambering around in the pantry I discovered I had no onions and no peanuts. Which is fine really, but it lead me on a creative excursion, the result of which is this recipe.

White Chocolate, Cranberry and Walnut Balls

cover

OK, so apparently Christmas is in three weeks so we might as well get this show on the road, yes? I kind of wish you could just whip out a fire hose that squirts out Christmas cheer. That’s a bit sad isn’t? These tasty bites will cheer you up, I promise.

good

Every year I make an enormous, elaborate dessert. Often something I’ve never made before. Something that Involves me spending a large portion of Christmas day freaking out in front of the stove. It dawned on me that, while in part I love this, it’s a less than ideal situation. So this year I’m keeping it super simple. I love these Chocolate Nut Balls¬†and they’re a cinch to make so I thought I’d mix things up and make another variety. I’ll make the two on Christmas. Wee! These ones are especially festive and pretty. I hope you like them.

Combined


White Chocolate, Cranberry and Walnut Balls

100 grams of butter, cubed and softened
1 cup of oats
12 cup of walnuts, chopped into small pieces
12 cup of dried cranberries
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
14 cup brown sugar
12 cup of desiccated coconut
200 grams of white chocolate buttons or similar. I like
these ones.

Makes about 25 balls.

Line a tray with baking paper.

Combine all of the ingredients, except for the chocolate. I usually start with a big wooden spoon and once the butter has been spread out, use my hands. You want the butter to be fully incorporated with the other ingredients.

Roll the mixture into small balls, the size of walnut. The mixture may be slightly crumbly but should hold together. Place balls onto the lined tray. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a ceramic bowl resting on a small pot of simmering water. Stir occasionally until the chocolate is completed melted. Remove from the heat and stir well.

Drop a ball into the chocolate and use two forks to carefully transfer it back to the tray. Repeat with all balls. For the last few where the chocolate is coming to an end you may need to stir the balls around in the chocolate. Refrigerate. The chocolate will have set after 30 minutes if you’re in a hurry to gobble them down, but if you can, wait for at least an hour so the chocolate is firm.
