Spiced Pulled Pork

I don’t know about you but it seems that I am always wondering what to do with leftovers and how to turn them into something different and appealing. Waste not what you can recycle.

Schweinshaxe (Roasted Pork Knuckle)

What do you think of if you are asked what are the traditional German foods? The Pork Knuckle, Schnitzel, Weiners (sausages or hot dogs) & Sauerkraut (Pickled Cabbage) comes to mind. Not forgetting that Oktoberfest is up and coming and this dish would be a winner served with German sausages, sauerkraut & beer and/or lager!!

Another shortcrust pastry for yet another quiche. Are you tired of seeing endless recipes for shortcrust pastries yet?

Someone had a movie to watch and we would not have had time to bring out the tabletop BBQ and take our time.

Eggplant Parmigiana

I am back with my second recipe using Eggplant/Brinjal/Aubergine a la Italiano. My next recipe also uses this vegetable, simply to use up whatever balance I have bought that did not get used in this current recipe. More work? but Oh! so delicious. I think of this dish as Baked Breaded Eggplant Casserole. Breading the eggplant is very similar to what you would do when … Continue reading Eggplant Parmigiana
