30 Days of Me: Day 21

“A picture of something that makes you happy”

Omnomnom...nomnom..nomnomnom

Raspberry White-Chocolate Cheesecake, made from scratch

Making delicious treats for my friends makes me happy.
And photography makes me very happy, especially when it turns out well!

I also rather enjoy writing, which is what Briony’s post for today is about.

So Cats, what’s something that makes you happy?

Butter Chicken & Easy Naan Bread

While this isn’t the cheapest of recipes, especially if you have to buy all the spices, it’s certainly worth the cost and effort.
The chicken can be marinaded over night. Naan bread is delicious cooked in advance and reheated.
And, most importantly, left overs are DELICIOUS.
These quantities serve 4 of us quite happily, with enough left over for Fox’s lunch the next day. Continue reading

Not-Really-Stroganoff Sauce

This one’s a touch on the pricey side for our poor student budget but, what with it being all wintery outside and all, it’s a great comfort food.
And it’s really versatile, so great for those weeks when I don’t have time to cook every night but don’t want exactly the same thing.

As always, measurements are approximate.

Olive oil
2 Onions, medium to large, diced
4 cloves garlic (2 TBLsp pre-crushed)
3TBLsp Fresh Herbs to your personal tastes (I usually use woolly & pizza thyme, rosemary, oregano and coriander) OR 2TBLsp dried Mixed Herbs
500gm Button Mushrooms
6 Courgettes
2 Carrots, large
1/2 Bottle Red Wine
1kg Sour Cream (Or 500g Sour cream & 500mL Fresh cream)
Sweet Chilli Sauce (I use Trident w/ Ginger)
Soy Sauce
Salt
Cracked Pepper
Paprika Continue reading

My favourite biscuits are ANZAC biscuits. My second favourites are my Nana’s Choc-Chip biscuits.

1/2 C Dried Apricots
1/2 C Dried, sweetened Cranberries
1C Dark Choc, chopped
150g Butter, chopped
1/3 C Golden Syrup or Honey (I usually use a mixture)
1/2tsp Baking Soda Continue reading

A catchup post from my slack self.

Ohai. Yeah, I’ve been slack. I’ll bake everyone sorry cookies to make up for it, you’ve just gotta come to my house to collect them.

In the past while I’ve moved cities, started post-grad, farewelled a friend, made some new friends and learned once more what it is to subsist on nothing.
So I guess I’ll fill you all in from the start. (And by you all I mean the 3 people that read this thing but one can dream) Continue reading
