Gazpacho is one of the glories of summer – tip it over avocados, dot with olives & basil, sprinkle with toasted cumin and m’whaaaaaaa! Delicious.
Ilaria’s magic balls! Fluffy golden brown, dissolve in your mouth = gotta have!
This is good with linguine (flat slim noodles) but I like the way small pieces of asparagus and capers get trapped inside tubes of pasta so you get a double whammy in a mouthful!
Mmmm. If you love eggs, and you love asparagus, it’s time to dunk!
Sunday afternoon laid-back salad. Yee-haw!
Yeah, go on, put it all together – avocado crema, pulled pork, mango salad with dirty chipotle dressing and a good dollop of adobo! Stick it in a bun or roll it in a soft puffy tortilla. It’s mighty fine either way. Get the recipes here and assemble your own creations: Black Bean & Orange […]
Stuff it into tacos, dollop with hot stuff and away you go.
All your favourites in one mouthful!
Pale and creamy, perfect for dolloping, dipping or squiggling!
Bright sharp flavours are always welcome with rich and multi-layered food.
Squish and tasty, refried beans are a perfect landing base for tasty tid-bits on tortillas or in tacos.
Lentils, lentils, lentils … More please!
A dedication to the town of Amatrice and her people.
These are tasty, tart and hot, and deliciously coconutty. I can never decide whether I like them more with the coconut chilli dressing or the lime and chilli one, so I usually make both!
I don’t know why people don’t cook omelettes more often. They’re so quick, so tasty and so utterly satisfying, that it’s almost criminal to think of dashing off to buy fast food when there’s an egg or two in the pantry.
Casita Miro rocked last Sunday as 75 people swirled, sniffed and swallowed some mighty fine Waiheke wines.
Yes, yes, another riff on these fabulous ingredients – I can’t help myself!
This is great for a decadent brunch or lunch, or serve as a substantial telly snack (you know, while watching the rugby or whatever)
Peas in a soup? Yeah! Thick, warming, intriguing … oh, and speedy, and requiring little more than a bag of frozen peas and a few spices. This was so popular last week, I’ve kept it up for another blast!
This soup is insanely easy – you probably can’t get much simpler than this.
Good with wine, good with beer, easy to eat, and delicious. What more do you want from a cheese straw?
Oh, the speed. And the taste! These eggs will take your breath away.
Ho Ho Ho! Potatoes on pizza. Yeah!
Making your own pizza dough costs next to nothing, but you do need time.
These pizzas are sooooo good.
This is a stunner, and a great way to get more antioxidants in your diet. Fresh and tangy, salty and crunchy, the perfect foil to a rich meal to follow.
