Good-for-you Creamy Curry

Good-for-you Creamy Curry

You know those gorgeous Indian curries from up north – the ones you’re not supposed to eat because they are full of all the bad stuff – cream, butter, ghee, ground nuts and coconut cream – dishes like Butter Chicken and that super creamy Korma. By God, they’re good. But […]

Granny’s Tuna Curry

Granny’s Tuna Curry

Ok – so this is not very gourmet. I’ve discussed Gran’s cooking here. Saying that however, this is one of the favourite dishes in this house, particularly with the kids. Even Mary has been known to say she likes this one, although she might just be showing respect to elders, […]

Kiddies Corn Fritters

Kiddies Corn Fritters

These have always a staple in our family. I think they started off as a breakfast item, but now they are one of the most frequently requested dinner veggies, and I always save some for the lunchbox the next day. Considering we have switched to being gluten and dairy free, […]

Tiger Fish

Tiger Fish

Well, it’s not actually tiger-fish. That’s just for the benefit of Goldilocks, my picky 5 year old. He hates just about everything, except the things I can’t feed him, namely gluten and dairy. Oh, and sugar of course. He LOVES sugar. With Goldilocks, it’s all in the eye though. If […]

Dairy-free Carbonara

Dairy-free Carbonara

Did you know that traditional carbonara recipes often don’t contain cream? It’s amazing, isn’t it, that you can get a creamy sauce without actually using cream. Think about mayonnaise. It also doesn’t contain any dairy (if you make it yourself – who knows what they put in the jar). Egg […]

Chicken and camel milk tagine

Chicken and camel milk tagine

I have a new tagine. It’s a fancy one – Staub. It cost way too much, but it’s the first tagine I’ve had that does the full job – it works on the stovetop, and in the oven. Until now, I’ve used a 45 year old enamel pot that came […]

Crunchy chicken and creamed corn crumble

Crunchy chicken and creamed corn crumble

Yep, it’s a mouthful. And, it’s not very pretty.  BUT This is the first proudly gluten-free dairy-free dinner I have presented my children with that has been scoffed like junk food. Possibly they are starved after 4 weeks of seaweed rice crackers and almond milk no-sugar banana smoothies and other […]

Kids Chicken Urumaki

Kids Chicken Urumaki

  So pretty. I love japanese food, but my kids don’t. I used to look longingly at children in malls munching on sushi cones while mine dragged me towards the chicken nuggets. All that lovely flavour, nutrients like iodine omega 3 and zinc that their diets are so deficient in. […]

Schnitzel

Schnitzel

  Before visiting Vienna (read my food path through old Vienna here) I had only had one great schnitzel in my life, and that was at the Tivoli Club, in Prahran, a German club with platter-sized schnitzel, cheap boutique beers and lederhosen to be enjoyed in the glow and tinkle […]
