Mixed berry filo millefeuille

Baking the filo millefeuille was easier then I thought it would be. As I had to make dessert for many, a made a huge one instead of cutting it all in rectangles. The mascarpone with the yoghurt, double cream, lemon and icing sugar is just divine. Instead of the pistachios we used shaved almonds ;-),…

My…

Praised Chicken

Great Nigella Lawson recipe! Love it. After a rather large and heavy lunch yesterday we needed something light and comforting together. For the big eaters we served the soup with rice, for the conscious one with a cheeky little piece of bread & butter. It probably won’t surprise you when I tell you that some…

Baked potato with rapid ragu & green bean salad

This rapid ragu is a Nigella Lawson recipe, the baked potato was my own idea to add.

The caramelized onions…
