For the March Daring Cooks’ challenge, Ruth from Makey Cakey invited us to start the day with something warm, nutritious and filling, . We got to experiment with different techniques and flavorings to create our own perfect personal porridge.
Before I started this blog, the word porridge would conjure images of a sloppy, pale , tasteless mass. Little did I know that, when properly made, porridge can be a tasty, flavorful and nutritious way to start the day
I love cauliflower.I know many people hear the word cauliflower and turn up their noses but believe me, if you are one of those, you are seriously missing out. Cauliflower on its own can be bland, I agree, but with the right spices and herbs it becomes irresistible! If you don’t believe me, try my cauliflower fritters or makloubeh or cauliflower sushi salad or stop by Sally’s blog and try her amazing cauliflower creation. I can guarantee any of these recipes will ensure that cauliflower will be at the top of your shopping list in no time.
I love recipes that feature a blend of spices. There is something about the smell and the combination of flavors that I simply can’t resist.
For the month of December, Andrea from 4pure took us on a trip to the Netherlands. She challenged us to take our taste buds on a joyride through the land of sugar and spice by baking three different types of Dutch sweet bread. I chose to make the lightest: peperkoek.
Peperkoek or Kruidkoek is a Dutch sweet quick bread made with a wonderful blend of warming spices like cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Many recipes also feature succade (candied citrus peel) . Peperkoek is traditionally served at breakfast in Holland with a thick layer of butter on top, as a replacement for regular bread. However due to its sweet taste it is also served as a snack or packed in the kids’ lunch boxes
