Like me, many of you have a very, very, very long bookmarked list of foods and beverages to make from our fellow food bloggers. Yeah, I see you nodding :) I don't just have one list, I currently have 32 lists ranging from meal type, to ingredients to cuisines. I've promised myself to make the effort to do more blog cooking and not just fall back on the regular stuff I find myself making every week because I'm rushed for time.
This week, I wanted to share with you three things that I made a few weeks ago.
You all know how much I love scones so when I saw Maris' Chocolate Chip Scones, I just had to give it a try. If you're a chocolate lover, you'll like this. Here's her recipe. A note: I did not use buttermilk as the recipe prescribed. I used whole milk.
Fish cooked in fragrant, delicately spiced coconut milk - what's not to love? As soon as I saw this on Malar's blog, I knew I had to make it. This Fish Molee is something that I'll be cooking often. Click here for her recipe. Note: I also add 2 small stalks of lemon grass. The next time I make this dish, I am going to roast the spices and grind them, I want to taste the change in flavour profile. Oh, Malar did not use turmeric but I added a 1/4 teaspoon.
Marie is an exceptional cook and I love everything she makes. I am not a pound cake lover but when I saw her Ricotta Pound Cake, well, the rest as they say is history. The recipe is here. Please pay attention to Marie's note at the bottom of the recipe in terms of baking time. I baked mine for 1/2 an hour in addition to the time prescribed by the original recipe.
Also, instead of dusting my cake with powdered sugar, I wanted to serve it with something that was going to contrast with the sweetness and so I made a strawberry sauce to go with it.
Happy Easter Everyone!
