Theme: Vietnamese Cookbook: Secrets of the Red Lantern by Pauline Nguyen I’m a week behind in the Cookbook Challenge but shall be aiming to catch up by the end of this week! Week 17’s theme was Vietnamese and it prompted me to look back through my 2007 Vietnam trip photos. We weren’t into food as […]


Theme: Noodles Cookbook: Fast Chicken by The Australian Women’s Weekly I have fallen behind in my posting – I really don’t know where all my spare time goes! I think I have also partly lost my blogging mojo and blogging has become a bit of a chore rather than something I enjoy! Not to worry […]


Theme: Japanese Cookbook: delicious. quick smart cook by Valli Little I absolutely love Japanese food, but don’t actually own one single Japanese cookbook! There aren’t many Japanese only cookbooks available for sale at department stores and the ones I have seen don’t really appeal to me. I know how to make sushi and sashimi and […]


Theme: Eggs Cookbook: The Cook’s Companion by Stephanie Alexander This week should be an easy week to find a recipe because eggs in recipes are so common. The hard part was picking just one recipe to make! I made an absolutely heavenly rich chocolate ice cream, cooked custard style but it didn’t photograph well, so […]


Theme: Greek Cookbook: The Australian Women’s Weekly Cook I got together with a few other Cookbook Challengers, Arale 79, Kat and Agnes, for a Greek cooking feast for this week’s theme. Greek is a cuisine I don’t have often, though I don’t mind it. I never cook Greek food at home and as a result, […]


Theme: Beans Cookbook: The Tuscan Cookbook Hubby & I had grand plans for making a cassoulet for dinner on Sunday night, but then we got a better offer of a Peking duck dinner out, so the cassoulet idea was shelved for another time! I made this Tuscan soup earlier as a backup recipe for the […]


Theme: Hor d’oeuvres Cookbook: Marie Claire Food + Drink See Recipe 2 – Prawn toast See Recipe 3 – Potato latkes with smoked salmon While some Cookbook Challengers were having trouble with this theme, I was actually looking forward to it! Well, mostly because I could use one of our cookbooks, Marie Claire Food + […]


Theme: Hor d’oeuvres Cookbook: Marie Claire Food + Drink See Recipe 1 – Stuffed mushrooms See Recipe 3 – Potato latkes with smoked salmon I would fail as a contestant on the Masterchef show because I’m not very good at planning my time in the kitchen! I can never really seem to rush, though it […]


Theme: Hor d’oeuvres Cookbook: Marie Claire Food + Drink See Recipe 1 – Stuffed Mushrooms See Recipe 2 – Prawn Toast The last recipe I chose was small potato latkes with smoked salmon and topped with garlic and herb cream cheese. I knew I would have oil left over from the prawn toasts so this […]


Theme: Indian Cookbook: The Complete Chicken Cookbook Apologies to everyone who was wondering whether I had abandoned the Cookbook Challenge only one week in!! I probably should have posted that I was going to be without internet access for a while! I have been in Adelaide since the middle of last week for hubby’s cousin’s […]
