Cookbook 107: Cheese

Apologies for the hiatus, I’ve been busy (mostly job hunting) and then away overseas on holiday.  I am three books behind and hope to get up to date with those asap, and to resume cooking regularly. This tiny cookbook was purchased second hand as a joke, because Scott likes cheese, and liked to answer “cheese” …

Cookbook 77: Share My Plate

I bought Share My Plate from the Asylum Seeker Welcome Centre one Sydney Road Street Party, as I thought it would be cool to support a great cause and to have more recipes from around the world.  This book is written by people who use the Asylum Seeker Welcome Centre, whether for communal meals, or …

Cookbook 74: Spice Market

I never thought that I’d say this as part of this project, but I have a new favourite cookbook.  Spice Market by Jane Lawson is amazing.  I cannot recommend clicking on that link and buying that book strongly enough.  The recipes I made (and I made quite a number this week) are amazing and tasty, …

Cookbook 59: The Complete Book of Herbs and Spices

I bought this book decades ago, when I was young and my biggest garden dream was to have a herb garden of edible and medicinal plants.  The Complete Book of Herbs and Spices by Sarah Garland talks about identifying herbs, growing them, which bits are for what and stuff.  I remember reading through the plant …

Cookbook 44: vegie food: low-fat & delicious

This weekend’s book was the Australian Women’s Weekly vegie food: low-fat & delicious.  Quite frankly I’d rather see a “vegie food – all the tastiness we can cram in, bugger the fat”, but apparently that isn’t done.  I’m not going to get into the argument that vegetarianism is better for your health than any other …

Recipe from the folder – Vegetable Lasagne

I had a very busy weekend, my dad’s 60th birthday party on the Saturday, with the necessary 4 hours of driving, and then I volunteered for TEDx Women on the Sunday for 5 hours which left me exhausted.  So no cooking.  I then stressed about what to write up, did I put up an excuse …

Cook Book 14: Moorish: Flavours from Mecca to Marrakech

The food was plentiful and delicious and everyone ate their fill, and then some.  There were some tricky moments, which I’ll record in the notes, but otherwise this book was great.  The recipes of Moorish: Flavours from Mecca to Marrakech by Greg and Lucy Malouf (again sadly out of print).  A combination of food from …

Cookbook 10: Meals in Minutes

As I was rather busy this weekend I thought I’d try The Australian Women’s Weekly cookbook, Meals in Minutes.  This cookbook belongs to Scott, and so by virtue of our relationship, ends up being mine and one that must be cooked from – well that’s my excuse.  The recipes are relatively straight forward, rely on …

Cookbook 4: Classic African: Authentic recipes from an ancient cuisine

Tonight’s meal was from Classic African: Authentic recipes from an ancient cuisine, available at second hand from Amazon. As this book is now out of print, it would appear that most of the recipes are available on the internet, so I will link to them below. I forgot to take photos of the dishes this …
