Creamy smoked salmon penne

Creamy smoked salmon pasta #1 MissFoodFairy

Over the past couple of months, I’ve been receiving a few emails from some of you, especially busy mums, asking for quick and easy meals that can be prepared either in one saucepan or frypan or cooked in the slow cooker while they’re at work. Well the good news is I have been doing quite a bit of recipe testing recently, trying out a few meals that could be made easier for those mid-week dinners. This is one of them.

IMK #1 MissFoodFairy

I’m sorry I’ve been a bit non-existent over the past couple of weeks. It’s school holidays here in Melbourne and most of Australia so my eldest nephew, who’s almost nine, came to stay with us last week. We took up our days with a trip to the movies, lunch at Huey’s Diner, martial arts with my husband and a lazy ‘pyjama’ day, playing play station and watching movies – there’s nothing like taking time to recharge the batteries after a big week. I had such a wonderful time getting to know what makes my nephew tick, without school and iPad in the way! Oh, and I’ve also been doing a bit (quite a bit) of recipe research as well as recipe testing – so many recipes in my head but they don’t always turn out perfect the first time!

Banana bread – on a mission to find the perfect slice

Banana bread bakeoff! @MissFoodFairy

For the past couple of months, I’ve baked quite a few banana cakes. What I’ve really been looking for is a super moist banana bread. And if you know me by now, I’m not a baker by any stretch of the imagination. I like the easy, prepare ahead of time desserts that try not to involve too much baking. In fact, I don’t bake at all! It’s not my strongest point in the kitchen. But, I will not give up on finding that banana bread that makes me want to bake it every time my bananas get to their expiry date before ending up in the rubbish (I don’t like wasting food!)

Melbourne Good Food and Wine Show June 2016

GoodFood&WineShow 2016 #1 @MissFoodFairy

Hello, how’s everyone’s weekend going? How nice is it being indoors where it’s warm. Hope you’re all staying warm whatever great things you’re doing this weekend. I must say, for three weeks in to Winter, it’s actually not that cold – yet. A great thing happened to me two weeks ago, my husband surprised me with a ticket to the Good Food and Wine Show at the Melbourne Convention Centre on Saturday 3rd June. He knows what I love:)

In My Kitchen JUNE 2016

IMK June2016 #1 @MissFoodFairy

I’m not the sort of girl that likes the cold weather – if I was a bear, you probably wouldn’t see me all winter, I’d be in my bedroom, covered with doonas and blankets hibernating until Spring! But what I absolutely love about winter is all the tummy warming, slow cooked and stewed foods that I love cooking. They always bring a smile to my family’s face. This month I’ve been experimenting with new flavour combinations, as well as perfecting the traditional flavours for my mini pies and pasties, which will be coming your way in the coming weeks.
