Creamy chilli garlic prawn fettuccine with parsley.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d09/49016642/files/2014/12/img_51151.jpg

I made this recipe about a week ago *breaks out into the Shmoney dance* and used no cream. I didn’t have any at home so I went for a more olive oil based sauce inspired by Laura Vitale. It was really tasty! I made it a bit too spicy though, but didn’t use less chilli powder in tonight’s recipe because I knew that the addition of cream would counter the heat but still give me incredible flavour.

Creamy caramel coffee milkshakes.

I wanted something sweet to drink and I had half a small carton of cream leftover to use up. Ordinarily I’d have used vanilla ice cream, but this time I omitted all vanilla ice cream and extract from the recipe.

I had to resist the urge to Snapchat document the entire process. An addiction I will describe in another post haha. I think I would make a decent vlogger… Recipe videos would be so much fun as well. Continue reading “Creamy caramel coffee milkshakes.”

White chocolate lime cheesecake.

I was really hesitant to make this because I thought wouldn’t like the taste of these flavours together. I remembered after seeing the recipe for it here that I’d previously enjoyed lemon white chocolate chip cookies and so I resolved to give this recipe a go once I’d gathered all the ingredients.

I liked the taste of this (so much that when my youngest brother, Alvi, refused his portion I was pleased because it meant that I could eat it). However, this was a lot richer than I’d anticipated. The chocolatey Oreo base was super sweet and the filling with it’s sugar and Milkybar incorporated into it… Mmm…

Garlic basil salmon fillet.

Salmon makes such a lovely meal. It tastes nice seasoned with simply salt and pepper, but the basil… It tasted so good. I baked this with some seasoned chips from a frozen pack and drizzled a little bit of honey mustard salad dressing on it

Only a teeny bit of basil paste was needed. You can see from the photos that the fish isn’t coated in green leaf bits from the basil to the point where the fish is hidden. The basil just needs to give a touch of extra flavour.

Applesauce spiced cake.

I used to love these packages of eight tiny cupcakey muffins when I was in primary school. I would always purchase the double chocolate chip and apple spice flavoured packs. They were so delicious. I’d snack on them after school and I ate them constantly when my dad used to travel to Geelong for work. I spent many afternoons anticipating the third Harry Potter film and re-reading PoA while eating those tiny muffins.

I had planned to bake some applesauce flavoured biscuits and was inspired to try a cake recipe, since the jar of unsweetened applesauce I bought was so large. I could tell from the recipe planning process that my cake would not taste sufficiently similar to the mini muffins of my youth and I was correct. That don’t even matter though, because this cake tasted so sweet and tangy. The tanginess came from the cinnamon infused cream cheese frosting. Mmm! Continue reading “Applesauce spiced cake.”

Spicy potato wedges.

Erm, totally skipping over the fact that it’s been a couple of months since I updated this blog: I first made these one evening when my parents went to a dinner party that my youngest brother and I opted not to attend. My mum had promised us take-out but as the party drew nearer the time to go and buy our dinner had gotten away from her and my dad. The spices I used for these were searched up on taste.com. Some of the women who reviewed said their fussy children loved the taste – I was sold. These pictures are not from that night, I did not document the final product the first night I tried the recipe. I made the wedges pictured here for my uncle and myself to snack on last year. (I’m a lazy blogger…)
