I won’t lie. When Emily told me that the Daring Baker challenge for March was to cook risotto, I was a bit ‘meh’. Risotto is something that we have cooked a fair bit of over the years, and I feel that we are across the issues with this dish. Then, I thought a little more. How […]

A few weeks ago, my friend had a baby. Yep, a real, live baby. My mother told me that when friends have babies, you must make and take them some food! So that is what I did. I decided to make something that could be frozen, because that would mean that the food could be […]

The January 2010 DC challenge was hosted by Cuppy of Cuppylicious and she chose a delicious Thai-inspired recipe for Pork Satay from the book 1000 Recipes by Martha Day.  The January challenge requirement was to marinate the satays – any type of meat or non-meat (tofu) could be used. Cuppy (the host) provided a couple of marinade recipes, however neither of […]
