More fruit and meat combinations ahead! This one was inspired by the fact that I wanted a snack-y type meatball but something different than pork. Saying that, I’m sure this would work well with pork as well. I added the bacon to keep them a bit moist, as sometimes chicken can get a little dry. It got the seal of approval (and surprise) from The Boyfriend. Which is a pretty...Read More
I’m not sure what possessed me to make this one. In fact, I was going to make a ‘tomato meatza’. But then I was chatting to my dad and decided that I’d make a ‘tomato tart’ with a meat base instead, like a ‘tarte tatin’ I said. He pointed out that those were made upside down. Challenge accepted! (My dad gives me some great cooking...Read More
Fruit and meat. Again! I found some blueberries in the fridge last week. Decided instead of making my typical blueberry protein scone – why not make some pork muffins. Nice. And it worked (for me). They look a little weird – which benefitted me, as I didn’t have to share them. Good thing as this recipe only made 6 muffins. Ingredients 400g ground pork 60g of raw,...Read More
I’ve been trying to fit in more protein into my diet. Obviously, this is usually in the form of meatballs. But on this occasion, I decided a sweet bite with some protein powder would work out quite well as a portable snack. Really hits the spot sweet wise… doesn’t really tick the box proteinwise. But tasty nevertheless! Ingredients 72g dates (about 12 dates),...Read More
Had some friends visiting for a few days, which meant that we ate out quite a bit. Yay! But it also meant on Monday I realized that I needed to cook with what I could find in the fridge… which was all approaching the Best Before date. This inspired me to create something. Because we all know what a fan of meat and fruit I am… and a fan of meatballs. But these are...Read More
In lieu of shopping for my meat in supermarkets, I’ve taken to always buying fresh from the local butchers. Unfortunately, it means that if I’m busy, I don’t get the chance to go into town to shop. Which means, if I’m not organized, by wednesday, I have nothing in the house to cook, unless I have leftovers. So today, I stared into the fridge for a while...Read More
I’ve had this recipe up on my screen for a few days now. But the problem was, I had no apples; I ate them all. I know, right? Me, eating apples. It’s unheard of! But I dehydrated about 3 apples with some cinnamon in my lovely dehydrator and promptly ate the entire batch. I suppose there are worse things to pig out on… but still. My eating 3 apples in a day –...Read More
In my (not really) pesto-induced fury, I made some meatballs the other day. The intention was to have them as a snack food. But then I figured it’d been a while since I’d made a nice tomato-y sauce and decided to jazz up the meatballs instead. Actually, I still have them for snacks – this recipe made 32 good sized meatballs! The idea of using sauerkraut as...Read More
Yeah, I know. More scones…. This is REALLY similar to the sweet potato tuna scones I made in January. But different. But they came out so well, I decided they deserved their own page. I found a baked sweet potato in the oven this morning. For some bizarre reason I bake 3 sweet potatoes whenever I bake them, and then consequently forget about the last one. So it was nice and...Read More
This recipe popped up on my feed via Our Life in Food but originally hails from Rubies and Radishes. It was one of those recipes that as it scrolls past, I realised that I have every ingredient in the house and no need to make a special trip to the supermarket for. I love those. I actually followed the recipe more or less exactly. (This is a rarity for me!) I’d add a bit more...Read More
