Infused misty oils

With the new year under way and my 2013 to-do-list out there for the universe to see, I’m having to make a few changes in the kitchen to make sure it all goes according to plan, and as smoothly as possible. One of those changes being how much fat I add to my daily consumption. Thanks to my peeps over at Kitchenware Direct, who sent me some Prepara Tabletop Oil Misters to try out and I thought I would do some flavours to jazz it up a little. If you guys remember my Roasted Garlic Olive Oil post a while back, it’s pretty easy so I just had to decide on what flavours to do. Keeping with the theme of the colour of the bottle, I went with White Shitaki Mushroom, Red Chilli and Green Kaffir Lime Leaf. The pump itself is actually pretty simple to use, just make...

Chestnut, Pumpkin and Prosciutto Risotto

Yesterday I looked at my “Sleeps til Xmas” app and it told me I had to go to sleep 224 more times until it was Christmas. That made me sad.

This time, cooking instructions followed the box and after chatting with a chestnut expert over at Impact, I was a lot more confident and ready to go.

A very Studdy Christmas

I love Christmas. No, just so we’re clear, I mean I freaking LOVE Christmas. I had been whining since August about putting up our Christmas tree and finally in November when i was having a very bad day, Stud caved to make me feel better. Most people say its bad luck to erect the tree before December but I say phooey to that! How can anything to do with Christmas be bad luck?? This year was extra special. Not only was it our first Christmas in our new home that we actually own (hence wouldn’t have to worry about sticking/nailing/hanging decorations for fear of permanent damage and no bond back) but also, Stud’s parents were visiting from overseas and it would be his first Christmas with them in 12 years. I wanted to make the dinner as special as the occasion so had been planning the menu for a...
