I love to cook. I love to create meals that make people smile. I love to share my food with anyone who wants to come to my home and sit with us. My door, and table, is always open.
Its a fold out table so heaps of room and if we do manage to run out there are the two outdoor dining areas that we can utilise so see, heaps of room 🙂
This week I made a couple of new things. We love salads and have them with most meals.I love Best Foods Mayonnaise but despise the price of the stuff. Seriously? $6 for a jar that lasts about 2 weeks if we are lucky. So I googled the copy cat recipe and boy am I glad that I did 🙂 I was super delicious and I made it at the counter using the stick blender. Took about 2 minutes all up so not a huge time thing. It is now a part of my day to day makes that will always be to hand. I took a photo of the recipe off the computer so I wouldn’t lose it 😉
All stuff that we have in the cupboard and almost good for you 🙂
As I am currently off work after having had my knee surgery I have been making myself poached eggs for breakfast. They are just not the same without Hollandaise Sauce. I usually have a jar of it in the fridge as I had heard that it is a bit of a drama to make from scratch but am currently out. So I googled it and found this recipe from http://www.theshrinkingviolet.co.nz
To make this Hollandaise (which serves two generously!), you will need:
An egg yolk
A tsp of lemon juice
A tsp of water
Pinch of Salt
100g butter, melted.
