Wandering Wednesday #5: What's cooking?


Image via Wikipedia

I don’t know about you, but I enjoy looking for interesting recipes online (it’s another matter that I don’t cook too often, but hey, I can look!) so, I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes with you.

My all-time favorite soul food is prawn rice, a recipe I learnt from a Madhur Jaffrey cook book (I forget the name now). The husband, though, loves chinese sytle noodles, and I just came across a really simple recipe from The Local Cook for a chicken stir fry with noodles. Gotta try this out on the weekend!

Now, I don’t know about you, but I need to have exact proportions and measurements to get things right. Which is why I love Mom Food Project’s recipe for three different consistencies of white sauce. No more lumpy white sauce in my baked veggies, yay!

When it comes to all things sweet (and sinful) you can be sure that I’ll be at the head of the line! One of my favorite bread spreads is Nutella — it’s absolutely divine! But if you’re bored of just spreading it out on toast, try out this amazingly simple Nutella bread pudding by ovenhaven and get transported to Nutella heaven!  

Hope these recipes entice you to go into your kitchen and cook!

Got any favorite recipes you’d like to share? You know I’d love to see them, so drop me a line in the comments!

  1. Nutella is so “in” right now but I just can’t get on board. I am loving anything fall flavored right now. I have so many book marked recipes I fear I will never catch up!

  2. Fall flavoured food would be ‘pumpkin’- things- I think; or maybe my brain is much too engrossed by Halloween! I wish it was half as big in Australia as it is over the States.

    • I love Nutella…and the bread pudding’s awesome too! And easy — I’m big on that! 😉 LOL!
      I tried your 5 min chocolate mug cake – took me 15 mins (what can I say, I’m a sloooow cook!!) and it was delicious!!!
