Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri Sauce

A raw parsley and garlic sauce that goes well on anything, comes together quickly, lasts about a week in the fridge. Great for steaks, empanadas, fish, veg, really… anything. I can’t stress that last bit enough.

Smith Island Rainbow Cake

Smith Island Rainbow Cake

I’ve heard from other parents that the rainbow cake can be a nightmare – too much cake. If you slice it thin so it’s a reasonable amount of cake, it falls apart, if you split the layers so each kid gets 2 or 3, kids complain they didn’t get the colors they wanted. Then you have this awkwardly tall leftover cake hanging around. Well, the state of Maryland has a solution for you. I baked a rainbow cake, Smith Island Style (with white chocolate icing) and it worked on 8 levels.

The Santi G: banana, dulce de leche, and Scottish (or Irish) cream milkshake

The Santi G: banana, dulce de leche, and Scottish (or Irish) cream milkshake

A boozy banana dulce de leche milkshake inspired by a recipe from Santiago Giorgini, an Argentinian Chef and TV presenter. Bananas and dulce de leche are a classic Argentinian combination, the milk and bananas are the creamy foundation from which the Scottish (or Irish) cream and dulce de leche sparkle.

Gazpacho

Gazpacho

This gazpacho is simple to make, as with any raw dish – it really is what you put in, so in particular choose the olive oil, vinegar, and tomato juice carefully. Excellent with olive bread, a white wine, and some manchego cheese.

Last of the Summer Lime

Last of the Summer Lime

I wanted to make a cookie for summer. So I made these on my last Friday off of the summer and the pun name was just a bonus. A vegan sugar cookie with bright strawberry flavour with flecks of lime.

Pan Tomate (Tomato Bread)

Pan Tomate (Tomato Bread)

One of my favourite foods. My mind was blown when I saw it served at our hotel breakfast buffet on our last trip to Spain. I struggled to make it using the traditional catalunya method and then discovered how I’m sure they do it in the restaurants.

Giant Sautee Pan Pasta

Giant Sautee Pan Pasta

A simple pasta dish great for a weeknight supper, adapted from an Anna Jones classic. It’s filling, surprisingly creamy and a flexible recipe that’s easy to modify.

Walkin’ Biscuits (Cookies)

Walkin’ Biscuits (Cookies)

Low sugar healthier snack cookies that are thankfully quick and easy to make because they quickly go missing. Based on the recipe from Yummy Toddler Food – this is a really forgiving recipe and very adaptable. Includes a chocolate variation. nom.

Vegan Parmesan

Vegan Parmesan

A great topping for our weekly or so vegan meals, also tasty right out of the jar. I may or may not sneak a spoonful while walking from the table back to the fridge.

Fancy Toddler Crackers

Fancy Toddler Crackers

A fancier take on the simple toddler cracker recipe, with just a couple bonus ingredients that you do. They do have a slightly nicer flavour, but are not quite as simple, just due to how many ingredients involved, so I don’t make them quite as often.
