Clever Sour Dough Bread

I hadn’t had any bread for many years until I tried a special sour dough bread during our Christmas holidays in WA this year. I was very surprised: 1. I had no reaction to gluten; 2. I had to have it every day for three weeks, had no strength to resist; 3. No weight gain…

Orange Duck Legs

I have been making this style duck for many years. All my children and their partners name this dish whenever a family dinner is due and their wishes for a menu are requested. This fact actually pushed me to create other main dishes to reduce the repetition 🙂 There are reasons for not sharing this…

Lemon No-Cheese Cheesecake

This is a variation of my No-Cheese Cheesecake recipe that I had to do for myself. I cannot find a Teff flour in the Australian shops, which was pre-Covid imported from the US. Another important reason is that a coffee-flavoured dessert does not go well with a coffee 🙂 So, this is just another opportunity…

Warm Duck Salad

This is one of my favourite salads that I don’t prepare very often. It is probably not an every day salad, however, if you want to indulge yourself or surprise someone, this salad is a wonderful meal. It’s a symphony of sweet-sour and savoury, soft and crunchy, homely and gamy. Warm Duck Salad Ingredients: 2…

Salmon Caesar Salad

The recipe for Cured Salmon was shared earlier. This Cured Salmon is a real gold when it is added to a salad. Below is a recipe for a Salmon Caesar Salad, that is a perfect light meal for a lunch or late dinner. A home-made mayonnaise is used in this salad, which you will make…

No-cheese cheesecake.

I needed a way to trick myself with a pseudo cheesecake. And here it is, my solution recipe. If you are allergic to dairy products like me, or lactose intolerant, I hope you will like this cake. The only warning I’d like to make is that this cake is best when served with a tea,…
