It’s about time

Well, now im super late making my first post of 2016 now rather then the January/February mark that I wanted but hey better late than never. But for now lets ignore that and get on to the fun stuff. Since I last posted we went to Germany for Steph and Michael’s wedding I’ll let her tell you about that though. Continue reading

Experimental Kitchen: Hasselback Potatoes, Veggies and Spinach

Our freezer died on us recently, but luckily for us, we didn’t all that much in it. Some ice cream, some frozen bread roll for emergencies, and some frozen spinach.

We ate most of the ice cream that very evening after discovering our little ‘problem’ and then had to decide what to do with the spinach.

Serves 3

The final product: Chicken Burrito bowl

Experimental Kitchen: Chicken Burrito Bowl

So I saw this Buzzfeed post recently about copycat recipes from chain restaurants and decided to make a chicken burrito bowl for one seeing as my other half was at Oktoberfest.

Now I haven’t been to America, but I figured that since people want these recipes, they must be good!

It may not look like much, but boy was it tasty!

Experimental Kitchen: Nigiri Sushi

I like loads of different kinds of food. I hanker after a good burger, drool over juicy steaks, go all hedonist with tasty dumplings, jump amazing heights for really good bacon, do your washing and cleaning too for divine cheeses. I also absolutely love sushi so whenever I need a fallback for something other than sushi I just go get some sushi because no matter the time of day and to give me the most realistic illusion of healthy eating I simply pop down to my local sushi shop and buy a bunch of sashimi, salmon sushi, nigiri of different sorts and pop the old anti-histamine and have some soft shell crab if they have it. When I’m on trips for the office I like to eat like this because it’s familiar and reminds me of home, as well as sating my love of simplicity.

Experimental Kitchen: Broiled Banana Splits

My first question here was, what is ‘broiled’?? Turns out, it’s not so hard!

Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to take pics of this because I made it while we had guests, but I can guarantee that it’ll be yummy! It’s also quick to make and a party pleaser.

Makes 7 servings.

Ingredients

4 bananas (or more, if you have large serving bowls – in this case, 1 banana per person)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 tbsp melted butter (I don’t have a microwave so I melted the butter in a pan)
Raspberries and/or Strawberries
Frozen Yoghurt/Ice Cream of your choice

Method

1. Pre-heat the oven at about 150 degrees celcius and if using frozen fruits, defrost now.
2. Halve the bananas lengthwise.
3. Mix the sugar and pinch of salt. Optional: you can mix in some cinnamon as well.
4. Brush the bananas with the melted butter and sprinkle with sugar mix.
5. To broil the bananas: Wrap the bananas in foil and put into the oven for about 3 minutes.
6. Serve the bananas with the raspberries/strawberries (I used both!) and top with a scoop of ice cream/frozen yoghurt. Additionally you can add shaved chopped chocolate and nuts, or just make a dessert bar so everyone can customise their banana split!

Enjoy!
