  • CARROT BUNDT CAKE - There's something extra special about baking birthday cakes for loved ones - the cakes may be simple at times but they're always welcomed with oohs and aaahs before being devoured by everyone! This beauty is for my father-in-law whose birthday is tomorrow. He is a wonderful man who has treated me like a daughter ever since we met 20 years ago. A loving father and grandfather, it was the least I could do to celebrate his birthday! You can see all the different elements to this cake in the <a href=/user/csrsugar/1>@csrsugar</a> instatory for today. I'm having an absolute ball taking over their account and still have so much I'd like to share over the coming days! 😊😊😊  <a  href=/tag/mummascountrykitchen>#mummascountrykitchen</a>  <a  href=/tag/carrotcake>#carrotcake</a>  <a  href=/tag/asweetlife>#asweetlife</a>  <a  href=/tag/bakingnation>#bakingnation</a>  <a  href=/tag/instagramtakeover>#instagramtakeover</a>  <a  href=/tag/lovetobake>#lovetobake</a>  <a  href=/tag/celebration>#celebration</a>  <a  href=/tag/cake>#cake</a>

  • CSR SUGAR TAKEOVER - This week is a huge baking week for me with two birthdays in the family along with the start of recipe testing for soon to be needed Easter goodies. Ever since I was a little girl, baking with my mum or yiayia (that's grandma in Greek 👵), there was only one brand of sugar in our pantry - CSR Sugar. I am absolutely thrilled to let you know that I will be taking over their Instagram account for the next three days, sharing my cooking journeys for the rest of the week.  I hope I may even inspire you to maybe do some baking of your own along the way 😉😉 To whet everyone's appetite, here is my beetroot and shallot tarte tatin, the recipe of which you can find on the CSR Sugar website or on my own. See you soon over <a href=/user/csrsugar/1>@csrsugar</a>!! 😊😊  <a  href=/tag/mummascountrykitchen>#mummascountrykitchen</a>  <a  href=/tag/asweetlife>#asweetlife</a>  <a  href=/tag/bakingnation>#bakingnation</a>  <a  href=/tag/instagramtakeover>#instagramtakeover</a>

  • BANOFFEE CAKE - It was my little man's birthday today and I thought he had his heart set on his fave chocolate cake...until he asked for a banoffee pie! I was then inspired to remake the classic pie (the recipe by <a href=/user/curtisstone/1>@curtisstone</a> is my hands down favourite), transforming it into a banoffee layer cake that was so much easier for him to cut through. Burnt butter cakes were held together by a vanilla bean cream cheese whipped cream, with lashings of butterscotch sauce and fresh banana slices sealing the deal! It was moist, luscious and absolutely delicious! Now I have to think of what cake I'll be baking for his bbq on the weekend! Happy birthday darling!!! 🎉🎉🎉  <a  href=/tag/mummascountrykitchen>#mummascountrykitchen</a>  <a  href=/tag/banoffeecake>#banoffeecake</a>  <a  href=/tag/birthday>#birthday</a>  <a  href=/tag/remakeaclassic>#remakeaclassic</a>  <a  href=/tag/dessert>#dessert</a>  <a  href=/tag/lovetobake>#lovetobake</a>

  • THE DESIGN RETREAT - The past week has seen me cooking lunch and dinner for between 15 and 20 people, in 5 different kitchens in the Southern Highlands of NSW....and I had a ball!! A group of the loveliest interior designers were brought together by <a href=/user/lisaburdus/1>@lisaburdus</a> for  <a  href=/tag/thedesignretreat>#thedesignretreat</a> where they were treated to talks by the fabulous <a href=/user/kathrynmireland/1>@kathrynmireland</a> and <a href=/user/melissa_penfold/1>@melissa_penfold</a> amongst other super talented and relevant speakers. I'd like to say a big thank you to Lisa for the opportunity and for believing in my cooking! Standing beside me the whole of the retreat was my fellow cook and, without a doubt,  an absolute gem <a href=/user/gillianbellcake./1>@gillianbellcake.</a> Thank you Gillian for your company,  direction, guidance and advice in so many things over the past few days - I simply adore you!

    Darling Helen, I'll never forget this week:) Thank you for putting your hand up to assist me - you were a trooper. And then to open your home to the retreat's support crew was kind and generous. I'll miss seeing the sun come up from your kitchen window. It's true- the retreat guests were the most beautiful, courteous bunch and I thoroughly enjoyed cooking for them. And I join you in thanking @LisaBurdus and @Kathrynmireland in asking us to be the retreat cooks. To @melissa_penfold and @cameron_kimber, thank you for allowing us into your kitchens to prepare lunch. Your beautiful homes and your warm welcomes will never be forgotten. X #thedesignretreat

  • PI DAY!! I managed to get a photo in the fading evening light of my eldest's favourite dinner - curry chicken and vegetable pie! It's rustic, packed with flavour and the most perfect dinner for Pi Day!!

  • PI DAY! It's really difficult to go past a classic apple pie - the stunning aromas of butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking apples filling our home at the moment is enough to make the effort worth it alone...well, that's until we take that first delectable mouthful of crusty goodness later this evening (along with a dollop of quality creamy vanilla ice cream) which will make the effort doubly worth it!! Adapted from a recipe by <a href=/user/yossyarefi/1>@yossyarefi</a>, this is an absolute beauty!!

  • Sunrise in the country - magnificent, soothing and impossible not to capture. The sun is peeking over the trees, the fog is clearing, the rooster is crowing, the parrots are squawking, the kangaroos are having a munch on the back hill, and the house is quiet...bliss!! With only the sounds of nature keeping me company, I'm having the first coffee of the day and am so excited for the coming week. There are few things I love doing more than cooking with friends and this week I'll be cooking in the country alongside <a href=/user/gillianbellcake/1>@gillianbellcake</a> for an interior design retreat organised by <a href=/user/lisaburdus./1>@lisaburdus.</a> Also with us, will be <a href=/user/annabellehickson/1>@annabellehickson</a> and <a href=/user/the.flo.show/1>@the.flo.show</a> capturing all the special moments of the retreat. I'm thrilled to be working alongside these beautiful creative women for a few days and will no doubt be sharing moments with you along the way!! First though, there's housework to be done, uniforms to be ironed and presents to be bought for three kids parties next Saturday which hubby is going to have to navigate on his own. I'm so grateful he's my partner in everything, my rock and respite in this crazy world <a href=/user/georgekydon/1>@georgekydon</a> ❤.

  • For the record, I had absolutely no intention of baking today...but then I saw the date and thought it was a must to celebrate  International Women's Day! As a mum of two girls, I want them to be grateful for the sacrifices the women of yesteryear made, respect the battles these women fought, and acknowledge that opportunities were not always so available to women. I'd like them to know that women should support and not judge each other or the choices they make, that the core value of feminism is having a choice as to who you are, what you would like to be and what you would like to do. This is what, I believe, today is all about - reflection and gratitude. Happy International Women's Day!! 👧👩👵👱🙆
Ps In case you're wondering, the cake is a gluten-free vanilla butter cake (based on the 100 year old golden butter cake by <a href=/user/babble/1>@babble</a>) with a mixed berry glaze to pretty it up. So good! 😊

  • POMEGRANATE PAXIMADIA (GREEK BISCOTTI) - In our family, there are two very distinct groups - those who dunk, and those who don't. Hubby, the boys and I are all very much in the former group!! In my view one of the best bakes has to be a delicious bikkie that can withstand numerous dunkings in the same sitting...and these deliver!! Flavoured with brandy, cinnamon, pomegranate juice and freeze dried pomegranate seeds, they are delicious, sturdy and perfect with that cup of tea or coffee any time of day. I must say though, they really come into their own as a treat to enjoy with that first cup of coffee in the morning...which is now, so excuse me while I enjoy one...or two!!

  • DAIQUIRI CAKE - On this grey, rainy weekend in Sydney, I found myself craving a little colour. A few hours later, the housework still wasn't done, the kitchen was a mess but the upside to it all was that this baby had been born!! Two Bacardi cakes were layered with another two cakes flavoured with Midori and a luscious lime swiss meringue buttercream kept it all together!! To decorate, I thought there should be a good amount of bling (seeing as though it is Mardi Gras weekend 🌈) and so lots of sprinkles, glitter sugar and fresh flowers were added to the mix! Even though summer is definitely warring for supremacy with autumn, I think this cake would be a winner any time of the year!!! More photos to follow as it was such a ptetty cake and I'm having trouble choosing a single fave pic!! Enjoy the rest of your day folks!! 💛💙💚❤

  • PAPRIKA LEFTOVER POTATOES AND EGGS - Sometimes sneaky little meals are there to be had and enjoyed by one...with a minimum of fuss and fanfare! Of course, the recipe is super easy to modify to suit feeding the family, but when there is only a small container of leftover roasted potatoes sitting in the fridge, it's time to be creative for one! Have a wonderful weekend folks!! 😀😀😀
RECIPE:
Heat a little oil in a small skillet over a medium-high heat, add a sliced shallot and stir till it starts to caramelise. 
Add 250g of cold leftover potatoes and gently stir till they are lovely and warm then reduce the heat a little and add one tbn of normal cream and 1/2 tsn smoked paprika. Gently stir until the mixture is all mixed in and hot. 
Turn the heat off and make two wells in the potatoes using a spoon. Crack two eggs into the wells (one in each well) and then sprinkle 2 tbn of melting cheese (grated) over the top of it all. Place the skillet in a 180C preheated oven for 10-12 minutes (I pulled mine out at 10 as I like my eggs runny), sprinkle a tsn of parsley leaves on top and voile, you have breakfast or lunch for one !!

    PAPRIKA LEFTOVER POTATOES AND EGGS - Sometimes sneaky little meals are there to be had and enjoyed by one...with a minimum of fuss and fanfare! Of course, the recipe is super easy to modify to suit feeding the family, but when there is only a small container of leftover roasted potatoes sitting in the fridge, it's time to be creative for one! Have a wonderful weekend folks!! 😀😀😀 RECIPE: Heat a little oil in a small skillet over a medium-high heat, add a sliced shallot and stir till it starts to caramelise.

  • HARVEST! Will this ever get old? Nope, didn't think so! We're up to just over 55kgs of tomatoes harvested over summer and then there are cucumbers, zucchinis, peppers, chillies, herbs and fresh eggs to top off this lot from the patch!! I think the tomatoes need to be canned, the cucumbers can go into lunchboxes, the zucchinis will be roasted and made into a salad for dinner, the chillies are screaming out to be transformed into a sauce to enjoy over the cooler months, and the peppers, eggs and herbs will make a beautiful omelette for brekkie! This is the beauty of paddock to plate eating!! 😊😊😊  <a  href=/tag/mummascountrykitchen>#mummascountrykitchen</a>  <a  href=/tag/fromthepatch>#fromthepatch</a>  <a  href=/tag/paddocktoplate>#paddocktoplate</a>  <a  href=/tag/farmtotable>#farmtotable</a>  <a  href=/tag/vegetables>#vegetables</a>  <a  href=/tag/lovetocook>#lovetocook</a>

  • LAMB CUTLETS, TZATZIKI AND SALAD - A new month, a new season and a new beginning! So many people ask each other every day what they're having for dinner so I thought I'd enter such everyday conversations and provide meal ideas that focus on quality ingredients and simple cooking...basically shared plates the family will love. Let me know if you'd like recipes and I'll also post them on the site for you to work off. This is one of my family's favourites to get the ball rolling - Greek salad, cutlets seasoned with salt, pepper and dried oregano and tzatziki on the side. Enjoy!!  <a  href=/tag/mummascountrykitchen>#mummascountrykitchen</a>  <a  href=/tag/lamb>#lamb</a>  <a  href=/tag/dinner>#dinner</a>  <a  href=/tag/paddocktoplate>#paddocktoplate</a>  <a  href=/tag/farmtotable>#farmtotable</a>  <a  href=/tag/lovetocook>#lovetocook</a>  <a  href=/tag/healthyeating>#healthyeating</a>  <a  href=/tag/cleaneating>#cleaneating</a>

  • SUMMER FIG TART - Seeing as though the fig season is so short, those of us who love them have to cram as many of these heavely fruits in as many dishes as possible in that time...and this is one of my favourites!! A simple biscuit and butter base is filled with a combination of mascarpone, vanilla yoghurt, thickened cream, vanilla bean paste and icing sugar before these luscious fruits are cut into wedges and placed in no particular order on top. The toasted pistachios are a beautiful flavour partner for the figs and also provide an extra bit of crunch to the tart. No doubt though, the figs are the hero of this summer dessert. When they're in season and this full of flavour, it's easy to see why the fig is known as the fruit of the gods!!!

  • FRUIT TOASTS - Simplest of breakfasts today 😉 Both toasts were lathered in creamy fresh ricotta and then one was topped with blueberries, honey and lemon thyme leaves while the other had banana, cinnamon, toasted walnuts and maple syrup.

  • CHICKEN AND POTATO BAKE - What do you do when life gives you a potato harvest of over 35kgs? You immediately toss some in a tray with chicken maryland pieces, onions, fresh lemon thyme, fresh rosemary, juice of a lemon (then add in the lemon halves themselves), sea salt flakes, freshly ground black pepper and extra virgin olive oil to make a sensational lunch!! After pulling out all the spuds this morning, it was brilliant to enjoy the fruits of our labour with a meal that was so delicious yet required a minimum of effort - my hands were just too sore from digging them out to make much more. Despite the effort in harvesting, potatoes have to be one of my favourite things to grow - it's so satisfying seeing how many potatoes form from a single tuber and they taste so deliciously different when they're fresh from the garden - a definite paddock to plate success story!!Plenty of potato goodness coming up in the coming days!👧😉😊  <a  href=/tag/mummascountrykitchen>#mummascountrykitchen</a>  <a  href=/tag/chickenpotatobake>#chickenpotatobake</a>  <a  href=/tag/paddocktoplate>#paddocktoplate</a>  <a  href=/tag/farmtotable>#farmtotable</a>  <a  href=/tag/growyourown>#growyourown</a>  <a  href=/tag/seasonaleating>#seasonaleating</a>
