Mexican Meatball & Black Bean Soup with Jalapeno Cream

Mexican Meatball & Black Bean Soup with Jalapeno Cream

Soup season is upon us and that makes me excited!  I just love a good hearty soup full of meat & veg and the options are endless. This Mexican Meatball & Black Bean version is no exception and is deemed to be a family winter favourite.  The tender spiced...
Italian Chicken Stew

Italian Chicken Stew

Ok, I am calling this dish Italian Chicken Stew. It really is a version of Chicken Cacciatore but I have a recipe for that already on the website. This one does differ in many ways, but I know that people cook the other version so I need to differentiate. Truth be...
Mini Lamb Rump Tray Bake

Mini Lamb Rump Tray Bake

I think you are going to find it a bit ridiculous, just how excited I get by a cracking tray bake. They have become my new best friend!! I just love that you can whack some ingredients on a lined tray (minimal washing up), sprinkle over a few aromatics (flavour scale...
Summer Sausage Tray Bake

Summer Sausage Tray Bake

When we had our firstborn son, my Husband was in his first year of a pretty demanding five year degree. Being the poor Uni student family that we were, I had to get creative with cooking and that is probably where a large portion of my love of cooking came from....
Sun-dried Tomato Pesto, Chorizo & Pumpkin Linguine

Sun-dried Tomato Pesto, Chorizo & Pumpkin Linguine

Every summer I have an absolute abundance of basil in the garden, so much so, that I can’t give it all away. I always make a traditional pesto (multiple times throughout summer) but there is only so much pesto you can eat without everything starting to taste the...
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...
Crispy Pork Belly Bahn Mi

Crispy Pork Belly Bahn Mi

While travelling through Vietnam last year, we took it upon ourselves to try the traditional, Vietnamese street food Bahn Mi, pretty much every chance we got.  The difference between each region was quite astonishing and I realised that there really are no hard and...
Chicken & Chorizo Taco’s

Chicken & Chorizo Taco’s

Gone are the days in the Em’s Food kitchen for Old El Paso Taco kits.  I have discovered a far more healthy and exciting option to feed the hoards.  Again, this is a recipe that uses fresh ingredients and good old pantry staples but does not by any means lack in...
Greek Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder with Kipfler Potatoes

Greek Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder with Kipfler Potatoes

Woah.  This dish was stunning.  The most tender, juicy lamb, floating in a fragrant, Greek inspired sauce laden with gorgeous, waxy Kipfler potatoes.  Dotted with a  few briny Kalamata olives and a dollop of luscious Greek yoghurt this was restaurant quality, for...
Lemon & Oregano Chicken & Pumpkin Tray Bake

Lemon & Oregano Chicken & Pumpkin Tray Bake

If somebody tells me they can’t cook, I think it is a big load of codswallop (is that even a word?).  How much skill do you need to whack a few ingredients on a tray and pop it in the oven?  None.  If you are a person that lacks confidence in the kitchen, then a...
Mexican Chicken with Braised Black Beans

Mexican Chicken with Braised Black Beans

This was Em’s Mexican food at its finest.  Grilled and spiced barbecued chicken on a bed of creamy braised black beans, laced with corn, fresh tomatoes and coriander.  The cheesy corn tortillas were the perfect accompaniment to scoop up the flavour packed beans...
Em Style Albondigas (Spanish Meatballs)

Em Style Albondigas (Spanish Meatballs)

Traditionally a Tapas dish in Spain, these melt in your mouth, tender and flavour packed Albondigas (meatballs) were a main course in my house.  Firstly because I did not want to share and secondly, these babies are too good to just have one or two.  Served with brown...
