By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche Firstly, thank you so much for all the nice comments on my last post! You’re all so lovely.
Now, I’m always being asked to share more lunch options, so hopefully some of you will enjoy this recipe. These pesto white bean tortilla roll-ups may not look like much, but they’re seriously tasty, and brilliant for popping in a lunchbox. They’re stuffed with a classic combination of basil, tomato and mozzarella, with white beans for extra protein and to make them nice and creamy. Tortilla roll-ups are so simple, but they’re possibly one of my favourite ever lunches. Don’t underestimate these little …read more

Zucchini Sweet Corn Hash Egg Skillet

By Erin Alderson I like to think that during the summer season, I am more creative with my cooking. All the ripe produce is beautiful and there’s so much to choose at the markets. Truth is, I’m actually a tad bit lazier. I find myself making meals with all the odds and ends. Those meals are also usually simple at best. It’s easy to make a delicious meal, hardly any effort required. This egg skillet has been a favorite of mine through the years. Zucchini and sweet corn is a true summer staple and I’ve found it’s hard to go wrong with this …read more

By Riz There aren’t many recipes that can compete with a breakfast/brunch classic like French Toast – just think about it, the perfect French Toast with crispy edges, a custardy middle, dressed in a delicious mixed berry compote with a drizzle of the sweet ambrosia that is pure maple syrup, and a sprinkling of icing sugar. Sound good? Enough adjectives? Okay, let’s eat.

Pasta and Bean Picnic Salad

By Sheryl Julian A picnic table without pasta salad feels like something is missing. You can put out all kinds of beautiful dishes, but pasta salad has to be one of them. It’s dependable, kids love it — and so does Nana.
This recipe combines pasta with beans and fresh vegetables for a more substantial picnic salad. The dressing is a simple vinaigrette – no mayo – so the flavors stay fresh and bright.

Baklava – So Good, It’s Nuts!

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) Assuming you haven’t used up all your homemade filo dough already, as promised, here’s my method for building what I think is a beautiful baklava. Like lasagna, there are as many versions of this, as there are cooks who make it, but regardless of the exact ingredients, or specific number of layers, the technique is the same. I tend to enjoy a generous ratio between nuts and pastry, as that makes me feel a little bit better about the copious amounts of sugar in this, but above and beyond that, I think this approach produces the best texture. As I …read more

Za’atar Roasted Tomato Salad with Black Lentils

By Erin Alderson Post sponsored by nuts.com. See below for more details. I have a fairly simple equation to my salad making that I follow most of the time. It is typically along the lines of greens + vegetable + legumes+ nuts/seeds. That’s it, that forms the base for salads. From there I’ll switch flavors, dressings, and add cheese. This particular tomato salad is no different. I like kale salads during the summer because the heat makes most other greens bitter. Roasted tomatoes are eaten every day, the za’atar is technically the seed portion, and black lentils are one of my favorite salad …read more

Old-Fashioned Peach Pie

By Cindy Rahe I could wax on and on about my love for pie. The flake of the crust, the sweet filling, that sparkle of sugar on the crust — but I’ll spare you.
Peach pie is right up there on my list of favorite things to make and eat. One of my very first memories is of riding my grandfather’s shoulders, picking peaches right off the trees in a California orchard, taking that first bite, and letting the juices flow down my arm.
This is the memory of summer for me, and peach pie is a recipe I think every baker should have in …read more

Angel Hair Pasta with Quick Cherry Tomato Sauce

By Sheryl Julian Every once in a while, I improvise a pasta dinner that I like so much, I end up making it twice in one week. That’s what happened with this recipe.
It’s so quick and simple: Just sauté colorful cherry tomatoes with garlic and toss them with angel hair pasta. Top it with Parmesan and you’re done
To say the sauce is quick doesn’t quite get the point across. It’s practically instant. This is one of those surprising meals that is more than the sum of its parts.

Buon Natale means Happy Christmas at Carluccio’s

By Caroline Field To me, nothing says Christmas like London and Oxford Street is at the heart of those festivities. St. Christopher’s place and all its little boutiques, cafes, bars and pubs simply adds and extra sense of warmth and welcome from the hustle and bustle during the festive season. Carluccio’s is in the centre of St. Christopher’s Place and last Thursday we were treated to the most amazing array of flavours as we attended the Christmas preview from Carluccio’s.

On arrival you we were greeted by the minivan full of panettones and invited to try all the wonderful selection of Christmas food. …read more

Vietnamese Bánh Mì Sandwich

By Karen Burns-Booth Vietnamese Bánh Mì Sandwich – My recipe for a classic Vietnamese Bánh Mì sandwich is based on the most popular variant of this snack, Bánh mì xá xíu, (BBQ or smoked pork) and uses some extra fusion ingredients, namely Korean Kimchi in place of the usual Do Chua pickled carrots and daikon radishes.

Pesto Zucchini Lasagna

By Erin Alderson I’ve found one of the best things about having a toddler is the random things they say. More often than not, Mack is making up something silly or playing pretend. One of his more recent pretend play has involved food. He pretends to ‘pick’ food and it’s anything from broccoli to chocolate ice cream. I’ve decided that when I can, I’m going to turn his ideas into recipes. Enter this zucchini lasagna. He picked ‘green lasagna’ and I took it upon myself to create a delicious, green lasagna. I’m not a big fan of using zucchini as noodles and would …read more

Homemade Phyllo aka Filo Dough – One Step Away from Baklava

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) At long last, we’re finally going to post a baklava video, which I decided to make a lot harder, by making the filo dough from scratch. While not using the incredibly convenient, and significantly faster frozen filo dough does make this a lengthier project, it also makes it much more interesting, and way more fun. Fair warning, I’ve only done filo a handful of times, so I’m no expert at making this, or baklava, for that matter; but the good news is, despite that, I still managed to achieve some fairly excellent results, and suspect you will as well. I’m …read more
