Store Bought VS Homemade


20120429-111443.jpg

For my Aunt’s 50th birthday I decided that it was high time to whip up some retro favourites that many would buy from the supermarket.

Homemade dips are my latest passion since I recently discovered how easy it is to make hummus.

So for Sunday lunch at my Aunt’s, in addition to making hummus, I created a spinach dip to accompany it.

All I can say is that I will never be able to eat store bought dip again!

For a quick and easy main course quiche was the go which resulted in tasty consequences.

Learning a few crowd pleasing dishes that can be quickly thrown together before a family event is a handy thing indeed.
The flavours are better than anything I would ever get from the supermarket, and with store bought quiches costing $10 a piece I have saved a decent amount of coin.

So go out there and figure out what your homemade gem is going to be! You could soon be famous for your homemade sausage rolls, pasties, anything you set your mind on.

Don’t be afraid to have a few mistakes along the way as you master the recipe, it took me 3 batches to perfect my Anzac biscuits.

Broccolini pie


20120424-112415.jpg

Last night the Lochness Monster was happily surprised to come home and find me baking pies.

After buying 2 pie tins from Everten last week I thought it was time to hit the kitchen.

The end result was the broccolini pie of my dreams.

This beautiful, versatile vegetable is highly underrated. Largely I believe this is due to people not knowing how to cook it properly.

Lightly steam these beauties to your desired level of bite, then finish off in the frypan with herbs or garlic.

Once prepared it can be served with rice, pasta or meat. In this case it was used as the main attraction to make a tasty pie.

The only thing that is better than one of these pies? Two of them!

If you have yet to try this magnificent vegetable get out and try some today. You can thank me later.
