Spicy Peanut Pork Fillet with Noodles & Asparagus

Spicy Peanut Pork Fillet with Noodles & Asparagus

I have discovered that one way to be inspired in the kitchen is to purchase different types of meat, pop it in the freezer and then peruse magazines and cook books and google recipes until I can come up with something blog-worthy. This is exactly how this Pork Fillet...
Pork, Pumpkin & Bean Laksa

Pork, Pumpkin & Bean Laksa

Phwoar…..this was good. So good that my Husband declared it the best meal I have ever cooked. I’m not sure I would go quite that far but the aromatic, spicy, homemade paste with slow cooked pork, sweet pumpkin and fresh crunchy beans did raise the bar...
Malaysian Curry Paste

Malaysian Curry Paste

Another winning Curry Paste to add to the basics collection. Fragrant and delicious, my Husband claimed this to be the best dish I ever made and it all came down to a few fresh ingredients whacked in a blender. Too easy 🙂 Makes approximately 1 cup 5 cloves of garlic,...
Indonesian Chicken with Cashew Satay

Indonesian Chicken with Cashew Satay

Um, yum. This was a gorgeous take on an Indonesian Satay that is usually served on skewers. I didn’t have time to chop and thread, so I thought I would use tender chicken thigh fillets instead. By all means, use chicken breast if you prefer but I just find that...
Green Curry Sausage Rolls

Green Curry Sausage Rolls

What a sensational surprise these babies were!  So easy to make, deliciously moist (very important in Sausage Roll territory) and they made a great snack the next day. You could make these without the salad and do party size for a crowd, guaranteed hit. They were...
Chilli Lime Lamb Racks with Sweet Potato

Chilli Lime Lamb Racks with Sweet Potato

There is no quicker way to have a quick lamb roast than with a lamb rack.  They literally take 15-20 minutes to cook, they are choc full of flavour and are finger licking good!  This dish was a little wonder of Asian delight, a low carb alternative and with...
Asian Beef & Roasted Pumpkin Salad

Asian Beef & Roasted Pumpkin Salad

Wow!  I loved this warm Asian inspired salad.  As with all Asian food it had the perfect balance of hot, salty, sweet and sour as well as the crunch of fresh salad and aromatic herbs.  Rib eye cooked to perfection and lightly charred roasted pumpkin completed this...
Coconut Chicken with Glass Noodle Salad

Coconut Chicken with Glass Noodle Salad

I was thinking about this dish for quite a while.  I knew I wanted to crumb the chicken in coconut and pair it with an Asian style salad but I also wanted it to be different from other Asian chicken dishes I had done in the past, which can prove to be a difficult task...
Coconut Chicken with Glass Noodle Salad

Pork & Shiitake Dumplings in Shiitake Broth

On a recent trip to Beechworth in Victoria, I had the most gorgeous starter of pork dumplings in broth in a fantastic pub called The Empire Hotel.  It was rich yet light and immensely satisfying, although not too satisfying as I still managed to fit in a 300gm sirloin...
Coconut Chicken with Glass Noodle Salad

Kung Pao Chicken with Chinese Broccoli

If you are time poor then a stir fry is the perfect option for a speedy mid week dinner.  This Kung Pao Chicken certainly ticked the boxes for me…….loaded flavour, quick and healthy.  Again, I have stepped away from tradition but only slightly, with the...
Coconut Chicken with Glass Noodle Salad

Asian Style Osso Bucco

I have a few favourite chefs that inspire me but none more so than Valli Little of Delicious fame.  I have all of her cookbooks and they are a constant source of inspiration to me.  I like to think of myself as a bit of a Valli Little because our cooking styles are so...
