Pizza Bianca

Our little princess has never been fond of ketchup or any dish that involve tomatoes. While her peers are basically paddling in ketchup pools with either french fries or nuggets, she would look on with disdain and shudder. This is just as well. Who really knows what goes in to making ketchup please raise your hand? If you are interested, check it out here for what goes into a popular brand of ketchup. See High Frutose Corn Syrup amongst the list? Thanks, but no thanks.

So that brings us to our pizzas. She loves making them and does a good job, but she just wouldn't even take a bite of her own creations because it had tomato sauce. Necessity is the mother of all invention. Which lead me to create pizza without tomato sauce. Actually, I didn't create it. There already exist such pizzas it just so happen that it didn't cross my mind.

Making pizza now is a breeze. No more arm power required to wrestle with the dough. Hooray!

Let's meet the pizzas!

First up, Pizza with Sun-dried tomato pesto, mushrooms and Gouda cheese. (Was trying to clear out the little that was left of the tomato pesto.) This pizza went to the adults since it has tomato on it.

Next, is our little princess favourite - Pizza with mushrooms and Gouda cheese.

Lastly, Pizza with roasted red peppers, mushrooms and Gouda cheese. This was Hubby's favourite, but little did he know that I was just being creative by dumping that few miserable pieces of red peppers to evict it from the fridge.

I love making pizzas. Good for the fridge, good for the gluttons.

I need to get my hands on the "00" flour!!

Post-meditated Pumpkin and Mushroom Soup

I cannot help but notice that recently the trendy words that seem to flood the wellness media always carry words like “self-care”, “meditation”, “gratitude”, and even “mindfulness” has been thrown in for good measure. Yes, all these single-word suggestions sound good. We all need to know how to take our stress level down a few notches at a time when we need to keep our face masks up.  So when I read the news about a nail being found in the pumpkin mushroom soup of an unidentified Asian passenger on board our national carrier bound for Auckland, imagine my dilemma. Should I feel grateful that my previous soups on board were served without any nails? Or should I feel grateful that I could not afford to fly our national carrier often enough to be served soups which might actually have carried nails or other specials in them? As you can see, I am pretty new to this wellness speak and hence very confused about this “gratitude” aspect of the trend.     Like any dutiful social m

Rosemary Cuttings

I think I am really bored with life. So bored that I am trying my hands are transplanting my rosemary plant! This is just after I killed by some mint off-shoots recently by transplanting them. I have black fingers, I think. Not that I need another rosemary plant. I am just plain curious why some people here are able to root a cutting from a Cold Storage pack . It sounds so easy that it is absurdly unfair. Maybe it is just my lack of technique and common sense when it comes to plants. Here's a link that I found helpful about transplanting rosemary . Seems that the chances of success for my transplanted rosemary doesn't look high. I didn't dip it in rooting powder (!!??), I transplanted it in medium sized container, and the soil is of highly questionable source (don't ask). Well, if the little fellow didn't make it, you will hear of it here soon.

Main Course Salads: Salade Nicoise

My motivation for looking into main course salad was born out of sheer laziness. I was looking for a one-dish meal (less plates) that requires minimal cooking (less pots/pans) and packs lots of veggies as well as being filling. No skimpy wimpy diet salads for this gal. So if I have to put this into a checklist of evaluating a salad, it would probably look like this. Salade Nicoise has all the ticks in the check-boxes. Everything in this salad can be made ahead of time. Right down to the proteins of eggs and fish (either canned tuna or leftover grilled salmon). Now, isn't this dish time friendly? The dressing for Salade Nicoise is just a simple olive oil and acid mix (ratio is 1 : 1.5)with shallots and herbs thrown in together with Dijon mustard. The recipe for the vinaigrette I used came from The New Best Recipe which you will be able to find it on Simply Recipe . I haven't had many main course salads in restaurants, but from the very few that I had eaten, the dre
