Midweek Dinners

Now, I’m the first to admit that in our household I’m the baker. I’m not the cook. That mantle falls to my wonderful hubster who is a bit of a whizz in the kitchen. Lucky me I hear you cry. Yes, you’d be right. So I wanted to quickly share something lovely he made this week for a quick and easy dinner.

A lovely tomato and pesto tart, with pre-made and pre-rolled filo pastry.

It was super yummy, you can find the recipe here from Olive Magazine, it was awesome and I cannot wait for him to make it again!

Weekend Baking – Crispie Cakes and Self Saucing Chocolate Puddings

Back from holiday in NYC where I went a *little* nail polish crazy… posts on purchases to follow.

But this weekend, we got back into the baking mojo. Firstly, the Boy Wonder wanted to make Crispie Cakes, based on a recipe his teacher shared with the class.  He was very insistent on how it should be made, so he pretty much made them himself.

Then for the grown ups, I made a self saucing chocolate pudding I saw in the hubsters Olive Magazine.  Very simple and super yummy! Although worth noting that you have to chill it for 4/5 hrs before baking.
