Breakfast tacos with avocado salsa - gluten free

Eggs Benedict

I have never made Hollandaise sauce before, but the other night Ollie and I were talking about eggs Benedict, so i decided to try to make some considering we were having a lazy Saturday free from sailing, which almost never happens. I googled a few recipes and found Julia Child's blender version then though screw this i should really try to make the proper one the first time. I googled it and ended finding Michael Ruhlman's recipe for Classic Hollandaise sauce, and decided to give it a try as i am currently reading his book "The Making Of A Chef".  I made a shopping list and Ollie went to the grocery store for me :), and then made a second trip for me... oops i didn't realize i needed soooo much butter...... It's lucky there is a grocery store downstairs!

chicken soup

ok i am going to whine a little bit, i have been feeling a bit tired the last week. And woke up on Sunday morning with the most awful cold. So i have spent the last 2 days watching far to much of How I Met Your Mother and trying to get better. I have only just managed to leave the house once today to pick up some groceries, even tough the grocery store is downstairs. Well yesterday I didn't really feel like eating at all anyways. So this is a recipe for a very simple chicken soup it takes about five minutes to prepare and can be easily prepared when feeling awful.

tomato, basil & bocconcini salad



Sorry for the exceptionally long hiatus since my last post, been busy with work friends sailing... This is the salad i made for the for the August long weekend lamb barbecue while i was in Canada. Yes i know this post has taken forever.

Peach & Chicken Quesadillas

tortilla with all ingredients before cooking

Sorry its been ages since my last post... I have been extremely busy and haven't been actually cooking much.... Why have i been so busy you ask, well working simultaneously for around 6 companies while studying is not particularly easy.  On the plus I have completed my course in AdvCert in Nutrition and AdvDip in Child & Adolescent Nutrition, and currently trying to decide what to do next. I either planning on doing a program on Advanced Holistic Nutrition or some personal training courses or maybe both. We will see, hopefully i can make up my mind soon.

Bagels with Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, Dill & Capers

sitting on terrace enjoying birthday cake
I have just booked my flights to Canada at the end of July for 2.5 weeks. It has been a long time since I visited Canada, 2 years!  Considering the length of time, I think it's time that I finally finish my draft that's been sitting on my blog for the past 2 years!  Just a simple recipe... well more of a combo "bagels with cream cheese, smoked salmon, fresh dill, capers and lemon juice".  I miss Canadian bagels and salmon, I am already planning on filling a piece of luggage up with them on my return.
