Parmesan and Tomato Scrolls

Posted by on Monday, February 15, 2010, In : Morning 




I made these egg free, low cholesterol, lacto-vegetarian, dairy-restricted [ have I got your attention yet? ; ) ] brunch bites for my husband yesterday. We didn't feel like joining the Valentine's Day throng and falling victim to inflated restaurant prices, so, a lazy and langourous day spent almost entirely in bed was how we marked the occassion.

These delicious savoury rolls, filled with grated parmesan and topped with a tomato half, not only make a very tasty and satisfying brunch nibble...

Chocolate Sultana Breakfast Scones

Posted by on Wednesday, January 20, 2010, In : Morning 



Scones are traditionally eaten at afternoon tea but I've always loved them even more, with coffee, in the morning. Last Saturday, I had these, in bed, way past lunch time, for breakfast, while twittering, with crumbs all over my keyboard, bed and a few unmentionable places.

My husband will soon be returning home for good, after almost 8 years working and living a 5 hour flight away from me. Once he's back, I won't be able to enjoy anything else in bed anymore, except wine and, well, my husb...

Breakfast Plum Cake

Posted by on Sunday, July 12, 2009, In : Morning 



I woke up this morning still thinking about a friend, and her sour cherry cake. She is you see,a frightful brainiac, but, by her own admission, almost completely out of her element in the kitchen. My blog, so she told me, had induced her into actually using her "cake frame" - her term of endearment for her cake tin, to make the said cherry cake, yesterday, for tea. Brava bella! So here, inspired by her newly gained kitchen gumption (she did it, in minutes, with a spoon, little else and no dir...

Feeding Pail Frittata

Posted by on Tuesday, July 7, 2009, In : Morning 


Can you tell I've been feeling a little lazy lately? I did stock up on groceries after the last skin-of-my-teeth cooking adventure with the dehydrated denizens of my kitchen. I just didn't much feel like doing dishes or cleaning my newly greaseless and gleaming stove. Don't tell me you haven't had one of those days? I wouldn't believe you, if you did. So, I got out my cake tin (it does look a little like a feeding pail; tilt your head a bit more to the left) and decided a baked omelette (ot...

Morning Jam Muffins

Posted by on Wednesday, July 1, 2009, In : Morning 

 



These muffins are a lazy stir away when you're up late on a weekend morning. If you love greasy, sticky, jam dripping doughnuts (those hip expanding, soul satisfying fiends) but virtuously shun them because your hips are already sorely testing the stitching on your jeans, deny yourself no more. These jammy, but otherwise relatively harmless muffins will satisfy those forbidden cravings without adding to the burden on your already beleaguered jeans; no guarantees though, if you eat more tha...

Red Fruit Salad

Posted by on Tuesday, June 9, 2009, In : Morning 



Looking at this, through glass, glinting in the sun, you may wonder if you’re about to eat a fruit salad or a heap of crimson and violet jewels. What a sight to wake up to! Wonderfully refreshing and cleansing especially on a weekend morning following a night of alcoholic and other excesses.  If you can’t get red dragon fruit, substitute with red plums, cherries or just double the amount of your favourite of the other fruit.  The smidgeon of alcohol this contains is my brand of “hair of...

Morning Trifle

Posted by on Saturday, June 6, 2009, In : Morning 



You won't believe how healthy this is, after a taste. It really does look like individual trifles and tastes almost as good, but is very much healthier. Use unsweetened low or non fat yoghurt, if you're feeling particularly virtuous. This actually looks tempting enough to tempt even children into eating whole grains - fools my brood, every time

Preparation: 90 mins (including chilling)    Cook: 5 mins    Serves: 4


500 g of your favourite berry or berries, washed, drained and hulled if necessary...
