Cranberry, orange and pecan muffins for WTSIM

January 11, 2009

   I'm still warbling Christmas carols, thinking about posting my Christmas lunch & New Year dinner recipes, and looking guiltily at our Christmas tree that really should come down…  so can somebody please explain to me how it got to be almost halfway through January 2009 already??  Yikes.  Tempus fugit indeed.  I believe I'm up […]

Roast lamb with coffee – suspend your disbelief for WTSIM

November 30, 2008

Much as I love ordering reasonably adventurously when I’m eating out, when it comes to cooking at home, I have to admit that I’m not one for wacky food combinations.  Lamb is served with mint sauce for a good reason: the tastes really do work to complement each other.  Ditto fish and lemon, chips and […]

Nasi ayam nanas (Indonesian pineapple chicken rice)

September 30, 2008

Before this edition of Waiter, There’s Something in My… (the monthly event that I co-host with my buddies Andrew and Johanna), Andrew asked me to help him choose between two themes.  I chose one… he went for the other. Clearly my opinion is highly valued over at chez SpittoonExtra! When he announced the “something vaguely […]

Sun-dried tomato pesto twirls, current addictions, WTSIM and more

September 17, 2008

Do you ever get the feeling your mouth is developing the nasty habit of writing out cheques that your body can't cash? Or at least, that there aren't enough hours in a day to cash? That's where I am right now. My head is fizzing with ideas and plans and schemes, but when I get […]
