Sunday’s are for quick and hearty meals like lasagna😍 if you’re trying to cut back on the meat you will love this Chunky Veggie Lasagna. It’s cheesy, saucy, and full of flavorful veggies. Takes about 45 minutes in the oven with @barilla no boil noodles. That’s right! You don’t have to boil the noodles.

Thank you @tabletopmediagp & @sassoolcafe for hosting us at last night’s @morganstreetfoodhall preview. Love that Sassool is now in downtown Raleigh! As always, your food is consistently fresh and delicious 😋. Infatuated with the jalapeño 💚 hummus💚 and your pistachio baklava!
This is my equivalent of those insta-perfect bikini bodies or travel locations ... where it’s easy to just post the good or get caught up in thinking some people have ‘perfect’ lives.
And of course, they don’t.
Or rather they do because our lives are often perfect as they are and often especially when they’re not looking so - when we’re red faced and crying with laughter or whatever it is.
Anyway, I digress. Of course!
I love spending time playing with food, trying new recipes, inventing new recipes.
This morning I’d been reading a recipe for ‘red pork’ - a long marinating time, a long cooking time kind of dish ... and I wondered if I could make something similar but a quick stir fry version.
I knew I wanted pork fillet but there wasn’t any in the shop so I improvised with an unsmoked gammon steak.
I kind of knew it wouldn’t be right but I went ahead and I like the marinade I made: tomato purée, soy sauce, Demerara sugar, fish sauce.
Next time I’ll add garlic and some chilli too.
I went ahead and made it and it just wasn’t what I’d had in mind. At all. It was .... fine ... but not right.
And yet I think it does look good and I could easily have posted it as such.
But I’m not.
This is what a work in progress looks like. This was my first attempt at getting something from imagination onto plate.
This is what I do ‘behind the scenes’ three, four, five - however many times until I’m confident in the recipe.
Sometimes of course it just works first time - usually when it’s been really clear in my mind.
This - because I was playing and adapting flavours and experimenting - nope it didn’t work first go.
And I suspect t won’t even look like this by the time I do post it and the recipe and am happy with it.
It doesn’t happen instantly all the time.
Just because you can make it appear so doesn’t make it so.
Happy Sunday all - and happy playing, experimenting and not being perfect 💛
Una frase que adoro.
"El secreto, Alicia, es rodearse de personas que te hagan sonreír el corazón.
Es entonces, sólo entonces, que encontrarás el País de las maravillas."
Vamos con la receta de esta pizza saludable y sin gluten .
Los ingredientes encontrálos en una de las fotos.
El procedimiento. Fácil y rápido. Ninguna cosa rara, sólo es cuestión de ordenarnos.
Puse en remojo el trigo sarraceno por 6 horas. Escurrí y coloqué en la licuadora con el resto de los ingredientes. No me hizo falta agua pero eso depende.
Que consistencia tiene?
De masa de creps o panqueques. Es decir, puedo utilizarlo para eso tambien.
Enaceité una placa para horno y esparcí la mezcla.
Horno medio por 30 minutos aprox.
Salsa de tomate saludable
Cebolla morada, 1 unidad.
Tomates, 3 unidades.
Sal marina, oregano, pimentón, etc.
Rehogar la cebolla. Agregar en tomate en cubitos. Cocina a fuego minimo por 10 minutos. Retirar y licuar levemente .
Todo es importante. La masa , la salsa, cubierta.
En este caso usé queso común para mis comensales, la idea era y es, introducir cambios de a poco.
APROBADISIMA POR TODOS.
Que tengan un bonito día.

Making millas at the Soreze fair. It’s very similar to the Italian polenta, made with local maize flour. A very jolly lady told me the recipe - “Maize flour, water, a copper pan, and a man to stir it,” whereupon she burst out laughing. It apparently takes one and a half hours to cook! It’s then rolled out very fine, allowed to dry, then fried and tossed in sugar. Not sure I’ll be making it any time soon 😉
La Guerra: mozzarella di bufala campana DOP, panna e burro di bufala, fiori di zucca, pancetta, basilico riccio, salsa allo zafferano e olio evo del Cilento DOP.
All new podcast with @jlinford - we discuss her new book from @penguinukbooks and talk food and drink as seen through the prism of time. It’s a bit longer than usual but a lovely in depth discussion with a really brilliant writer. We were treated to tasters and cheese tales from Will and Phil @neals_yard_dairy and amazing Comte from @boroughmarket . We also spent time wandering @boroughmarket which frankly is one of my favourite activities! Follow the link in my bio and do please SUBSCRIBE, LISTEN AND RATE - every little helps!! #boroughmarket#london#foodwriter#podcast#foodanddrink#cooking#time#londonfood#cheese#britishcheese#conversations
Rounding out a jam-packed weekend with a slice of chocolate crostata topped with a good dollop of clotted cream 😍 this recipe is from @italyonmymind’s new cookbook. I made it a long tart, rather than round because I don’t have a round cake tin and it worked perfectly!
I loved seeing everyone’s benchtop answers from my stories. You guys have good taste because we are all on the same page! I think we are leaning towards the slightly darker grey which has a slight subtle marbling through it (which you can’t see on the small sample) so that we can tie in the age of the rest of the house (1930’s) with the more modern cabinetry 😊 I’ll feel better about it once I can line it all up together to really see how the cabinets, tiles and bench tops look altogether. It’s so hard to visualise how a kitchen will look when you’re working off tiny colour chips!
Hope you guys had a great weekend 😊 Mel x #naturallynutritious
