I always find that coming into the warmer months, I am flicking through my recipe books - ear-tagging yummy recipes and trying to be new and creative for my family. So why don't we start to inspire and share recipes with each other?
E-mail me with your most favourite recipe (I am increasingly curious about these 'Porcupines') and I will be sure to blog about it....and hopefully MAKE IT TOO!!
So to kick it off, my delicious dinner from last night was Zucchini Slice and I am more than happy to report that my ever-so-fussy daughter ate it without a tantrum and Heath even called from the tractor to tell me how delicious it was. I actually made Macie some special 'cupcake' ones and placed the rest into a lamington tin. Seriously - the easiest dinner ever and absolutely perfect with a little salad!
Recipe handed down from my Mama
375g Zucchini (usually 2 big ones)
1 large Onion
3 rashers of bacon
1 cup grated chedder cheese
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup oil
Salt & Pepper
Grate unpeeled zucchini coarsely (I use a little food processer that I have to make it quicker), finely chop onion (I throw this in the food processer too!) and finely chop bacon also. Combine zucchini, onion, bacon, cheese, sifted flour, oil and lightly beaten eggs - and then season with salt and pepper. Pour into well-greased pan (I use baking paper) and bake in moderate oven for 30 - 40 minutes until browned.
Serves 4 - 6.
|Apologies for the awful photo.....camera was obviously only impressed with the salad!|
So, if you feel like joining in on the fun - please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your favourite recipe! In the meantime, I will share with you my creations and hopefully they will inspire you!
As for my recipe book collection.....I felt like I was lying to you giving you a photo of my neatly displayed books.....it's all a lie. This is the one cupboard in our kitchen that is without a door (more on that another day) so I have everything *cough* "neatly" (NOT) stacked on top of each other as I have no room anywhere else. Here is the uncropped version......and I didn't tidy it up beforehand.....can you tell?? ;)
