Favourite Five: Apps by Steph

Ok so now I’m up with my favourite five apps.

Where my family at?

Where my family at?

1. Friend Locator by Life360 (or Family Locator)

It sounds a bit creepy, but with this app, you can keep track of others. The good thing is, however, that the other people need to first register, otherwise they cannot be tracked. They can then check in whenever they want and there are lots of settings that you can alter to make sure that your location is not constantly tracked. You can create ‘circles’ or groups of people who can all see each other and you can send messages to the other members as well. Another weird thing is that you can find any crimes/sexual criminals in the area – they show up as small dots. Interesting stuff and questionable, but still a useful app! You may want to turn off the email notifications though, as these can get a bit annoying.

Experimental Kitchen: Martha Stewart Style

Each day we are posed with the same, nagging and somewhat difficult question: What should I make for dinner tonight?

Living away from home and not being treated by mum’s legendary cooking skills, this has become a daily struggle. Not that I’m complaining because I know I’ve got it good compared to many, and it also allows me to experiment and be creative in the kitchen. As we do nowadays, I turn to Google. I’ve used a number of sites and searched for recipes as well as used Apps but now I’m trying something else. I’m turning to Martha.

Recently I tried this recipe and it turned out really well. It was simple yet delicious and looked impressive. So here’s my slightly altered version.

Chicken breast stuffed with tomato, basil and mozzarella

Ingredients

Chicken breasts (at least 1 for each person) – Martha Stewart recommended to use chicken breast with bone but I used boneless and it was still juicy and tasty.

1 Mozarella ball (125g)

A handful of fresh basil leaves

Sundried tomato (approx. 4 slices – can be more)

1 fresh tomato

2 cloves of garlic

Olive oil

Juice of a lemon (fresh or from a bottle)

Salt and pepper

Method

1. Preheat oven to 220 C and line a tray with aluminium foil.

2. Use a sharp knife to cut a slit through the side of each breast. Carefully create pockets in the breasts for the filling.

3. Finely chop up the basil leaves, sundried tomato slices, garlic cloves and fresh tomato and garnish with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

4. Spoon the filling into the chicken breasts and insert a slice of mozzarella in each. Close the chicken breast pockets with toothpicks or metal sticks.

5. Arrange chicken breasts on the tray, rub/brush them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put in over for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

6. In the meantime, to create a sauce, heat up chopped up tomatoes from a can/carton and then stir in chopped up basil leaves and season to taste.

7. Serve with spaghetti noodles or cous cous.

Eat and enjoy!
