Egg and Bacon Pie!

Last night I made my first ever.....Bacon and Egg Pie! and it seems I have been missing out on pure yumminess! How could I not have made one of these delicious meals until now?? 

I have no idea! 

But here is the recipe (just in case you have never tried one or just want the recipe)

Bacon and Egg Pie with Salad

Pie Ingredients:

2 sheets ready rolled shortcrust pastry, partially thawed
8 rashers bacon, diced
6 eggs
1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Salad Ingredients:

1/2 lettuce
1 large tomato
1/2 capsicum (I chose yellow to add colour)
1 red onion

1. Preheat the oven to 210 degrees (fan forced 190). Grease a 20cm pie dish and then line with 1 sheet of shortcrust pastry, re-rolling slightly if needed.

2. Cook bacon in a non stick pan until just golden. Place half in the base of the pie dish. Carefully crack eggs into the dish, making sure you don't break the yolks. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with remaining bacon and chopped parsley.

3. Top with remaining pastry sheet, press edges to seal. Trim excess pastry and brush with beaten egg. 

4. Bake for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 180 degrees (fan forced 160) and cook for a further 20 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

5. Chop salad ingredients to desired chunks or strips toss in a bowl and serve alongside.

Easy Peasy!

The books on my table this week!

In my world. Books mean everything to me. They always have and always will. 

I could never give up my books! especially not for any of that new technology everyone is using at the moment, tablets, ipads, kindles.....they are all just so odd! why can't people just read a book??? I don't know but I do know that books will always be scattered around my house and filling my book-shelves......

Another thing you should know about me before I continue, is that I am never reading just one book at a time! I tend to have at least three books going at once because i'm a girl and my moods are always different. Plus my imagination and personality is never satisfied with just one story! 

So here we go! These are the books that are in my handbag, on my bedside table and on the coffee table this week!...................

 Ok i'm going to show off this book first because it only took me 2 days to finish it! It was 'The Boy in The Dress' written by David Walliams, one half of the comedy duo from 'Little Britain'. This is Walliams first book and was a delight to read.

When I saw it at the book store I just had to buy it! Not just because I love David Walliams but also because the book is illustrated by the amazing Quentin Blake who is well known for his illustrations in Roald Dahl's books.......

I was expecting it to be a bit more funny and witty than it was but the story is so sweet and delightful that it doesn't need too much humour. But there are certainly plenty of giggles to be had.......

 Ok now for the book that I find so hard to put down! For those that saw my blog on the movie 'The Help', I finally went out and bought myself the book! eeeeek! and it is better than I could ever have imagined! Certainly my favourite out of the books I am reading at the moment! I am only up to chapter 3 but loving every second and every page!! (I will do a blog review on this one when I am finished so until then i'm not saying too much) :P

John Grisham's, 'The Innocent Man' is the book on my bedside table at the moment. This one is a funny one to describe! It is certainly a gripping story and a book that I should not be able to put down but although I am enjoying the read I have to keep taking breaks because it is a bit too heavy and depressing to read all at once.

'The Innocent Man' is the true story of the criminal justice system gone wrong. The fact that it is a true story is the most interesting part. So far it is really good and certainly does what it sets out to do! I am half way through now and haven't lost interest which is good!.......It is apparently very similar to Truman Capote's 'In True Blood' - which I have heard of and seen the Capote film, but never read.......I just ordered it though so it is next on my list! 

 And lastly we have another book where I have seen and LOVED the film but never got around to reading the book!! I recently watched the BBC version with Tom Hardy and fell in love so I figured I better get the book!

I only got it today so this one is on my coffee table after I read the first two pages! I will come back to this one later......hehe

Well there you go! that's what books are in my life this week! 
What books are you reading this week???

The Help

This weekend I got the chance to FINALLY watch 'The Help'. A film I have been dying to watch for a looooong time after seeing so many great reviews about it and seeing one of the ladies win a golden globe for her performance! And I must say I enjoyed everything about the film it was heart-warming, funny and interesting the whole way through!

For those who haven't heard of this film or don't know what it is about, This film is set in Civil Rights era America in the early 1960's. It follows a young journalist, Eugenia 'Skeeter' Phelan (Emma Stone), who after witnessing her friends and neighbours treating their black maids disrespectively decides to write a book called 'The Help' which will share the point of view of the maids.

At first none of the maids want to help Skeeter with her book as they are scared of not only losing their jobs but also scared of the consequences of speaking out after seeing their own being abused and imprisoned all the time. Eventually one maid, Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis), decides to share her stories with Skeeter followed closely by Aibileen's friend, Minny (Octavia Spencer).

Of course there is always a bad guy who attempts to ruin it for everyone and in 'The Help' we get the villain in the form of socialite Hilly Holbrook (Bryce Dallas Howard). A woman who has a proposed bill to provide seperate bathrooms for the black help as she believes that they 'carry different diseases' to white people. Most of the white community agree with Hilly and ignore the discriminative acts toward the black community.

Dallas Howard is perfect as Hilly Holbrook giving the film the ultimate villain that you just want to slap for being so rude and disrespectful to people who are basically raising her children for her as she socialises and keeps up the housewife image.

Octavia Spencer won the golden globe for Best Supporting Actress for 'The Help' and she totally deserved it her performance as Minny was fantastic and she had such a funny and lovable character. But I believe that the real star of the film was Viola Davis. She was beautiful and had a warmth about her that just made the film even more enjoyable.

Now for the lovely Emma Stone. I was never really a fan of Emma Stone but after watching 'The Help' and also 'Crazy Stupid Love' this year she is really starting to grow on me and I look forward to seeing more of her in films. Emma is very sweet in this film and her character makes you want to stand up and make a difference once the film has ended!

If you haven't seen 'The Help' yet I highly recommend watching it! Especially if you are a sucker for a good heart-warming and empowering film!

Now I need to go out and buy the book I think! :D

Caramel Peach Upside Down Cake

Today I attempted my very first upside down cake and it was mostly a success! Obviously being my first attempt it wasn't perfect!

Basically the round cake tin I used was too small which meant by the end of the cooking stage my cake had risen above the tin creating a bulge at the bottom when the cake was put the right way up! however this didn't affect the cake at all just the presentation soooo......time to get some different size cake pans I think!! anyway here is the recipe for you all to give it a go!! It was certainly extremely yummy!!!

Caramel Peach Upside Down Cake! 

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Total Cooking Time: 1 hour 25 minutes
Serves: 10 - 12

250g unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup soft brown sugar
825g tinned peach halves in natural juice
1 cup caster sugar
3 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 and 1/2 cups self raising flour, sifted
1 cup plain yoghurt

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Grease a deep 23cm round cake tin and line the base with baking paper.

2. Melt 50g of the butter and pour on the base of the tin. Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar over the top.

3. Drain the peaches we;;, reserving about 1 tablespoon of the liquid. Arrange the peach halves, cut side up, over the sugar. 

4. Beat the caster sugar, lemon zest and remaining butter using electric beaters for 5 - 6 minutes or until pale and creamy. Add the egg gradually, beating well after each addition (the mixture may look curdled but once you add the flour, it will bring it back together). Using a metal spoon, fold in the flour alternately with the yoghurt (in two batches) then the reserved peach liquid. Spoon the mixture over the peaches and smooth the surface. 

5. Bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the cake. Cool in the tin for 30 minutes before turning out onto a large serving plate. 

Remember to Have Fun and Enjoy!

Never Give Up!

I think it is very safe to say that through my 25 and a half years of life I have never stopped having dreams! 
Sometimes my dreams come and go. Because some 
of my dreams are just phases or silly ideas but most of my dreams are dreams that I have had since I was a small child that will always stay with me! 

Dreams about that prince charming and the palace with the romantic storyline to go with it. The ones  we have all seen so many times in Disney movies! 

 And then there are the dream jobs. Obviously being me (the girl who can never stick to one thing) these dreams are the ones that mostly come and go!  But I always think that if I work hard enough and try everything I possibly can then one day I will find that one dream job that is just for me :) or maybe my real dream is to just keep searching! to always be on the move trying everything and keeping my attitude of striving to be the very best at everything I do!

 When we dream we are not supposed to get our dreams straight away I have learnt that from years of experience!

You don't get that dream guy from sitting on the couch watching disney flicks and sometimes are dreams aren't what we pictured in our heads at the age of eight! Who thought that my prince Charming would actually end up being the guy from the local video store? and I never would have believed that my palace would actually consist of a small cottage style house with two gorgeous children and a fiance with normal situations, emotions and feelings?

From my imaginations I saw a palace from the likes of Cinderella with a Prince Charming that looked like Prince Eric from the Little Mermaid and a fairytale story from the likes of Beauty and Beast.......but though they are the dreams we envision because of books and movies that is not exactly what we need! what do we need? we need the fairytale that we really want the dreams the create a world of our own because honestly who wants the dreams of somebody else? when we can have our own dreams and our own fairytale fantasy!

My dreams will always have an element of the fairytale I envisioned because that is just the kind of person that I am. I am a child at heart! and always will be but now that I am much older my dreams are also full of reality and a bit of common sense!

But no matter what any of our dreams are wether it be getting that fancy car, finding our soul mate, getting that great career or being talented at something none of us will get those dreams without persistence and hard work! without these two elements dreams just do not come true!

We have all seen Pinocchio where he wishes on a star! and we all know that he had to work hard to finally become a real boy! well it is no different for us, in order to fulfill our dreams we have to give to the world and we have to work hard and never give up! even the disney films show us that! but yet I still see people every day giving up so easily.

If dreams were supposed to be easy then life would be incredibly boring!! Dreams help us live a life that we want, they make us think about the world and what we want from it. People who dream have the potential to live life to its fullest, people who really dream and have hope are the ones who feel and appreciate each other. Because we know how hard it is to reach our goals.

So if you have a dream don't just let it pass you by, keep fighting for what you believe in and push yourself to the limit to get your fairytale because it's not going to find you!


Keep smiling

Kids in the Kitchen!

Well in my palace, Monday and Tuesday are the days that my amazing little munchkins get to take over the kitchen and make our family dinner. 

This week because mummy was on a Jamie Oliver journey with her new cook books, Mikey decided to create one of Jamie Oliver's meals and he decided to go for one that incorporated his favourite ingredient...............noodles!!

So while Mikey was at school mummy headed out to collect the ingredients and then after school and homework we got started to create:

Rib Eye Stir Fry with Dan Dan Noodles and Jasmine Tea

It was absolutely delicious and Jamie Oliver's instructions were simple enough even for Mr Eight to follow which was fantastic and boy did he work hard at this meal :D he was extremely proud of himself for his hard work and so was mummy!

On Tuesday it was Rahni's turn to cook for the family and she decided to make us some home made pizzas!! These were also delicious and a lot of effort was put in to create them! So I was very  proud yet again! This time daddy helped with the cooking while Mummy and Mikey took a break! 

       This was the final product!! YUM!! 
A margerita pizza and a hawaiin pizza!! with Mummy's valentines day flowers just to add to the table decorations :D lucky me!! and if you look further below I have included the recipe for homemade pizzas!!

Pizza Dough (makes 1 pizza)

225 g white strong flour

1. Put flour, sugar, yeast and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Stir the olive oil with the milk and 80ml warm water and add to the bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon.

 Margerita Pizza

6 chopped basil leaves

1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, bay leaf, thyme and basil and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 - 25 minutes, or until thick. Cool then remove the bay leaf.

2. Place the dough on a floured surface, punch down to expel the air and knead for 5 minutes. Shape into a ball and roll to 28 - 30 cms diameter.

3. Oil a pizza tray the size of the dough. Sprinkle the tray with polenta and place the dough on top. Spread the sauce over the dough, leaving a 3cm border. Arrange the mozzarella on top and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 15 minutes, or until crisp and bubbling

Hawaiian Pizza

3 tablespoons tomato paste
4 pineapple slices, cut into cubes
100g shaved ham, sliced
150g mozarella cheese, grated

1. Place the dough on a floured surface, punch down to expel the air and knead for 5 minutes. Shape into a ball and roll to 28 - 30cms diameter.

2. Oil a pizza tray the size of the dough. Sprinkle the tray with polenta and place the dough on top. 

3. Spread the tomato paste over the dough, leaving a 3cm border. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly on top, followed by the ham and pineapple and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 15 minutes or until crisp and cheese is melted. 

I hope you enjoy making these pizzas with your kids! and if you have other topping ideas feel free to share below :D I would love to hear some new ideas!!

My Kitchen Skills emerge from the deep....

Well it may come as a suprise BUT I have kept my promise to be more of a homemade/handmade mummy and wife :D Oh the Joys I have experienced over the last few days!!! It is amazing the feelings and joy you get from working hard in the home!

This past weekend I have been busy! but not from housework (that will be done today), no this weekend was mostly spent in the kitchen! I decided my kids need to have lunchboxes that are purely homemade.....in fact my whole house needs non packaged items!!! even down to the pasta......yep! I went out with the man and purchased a......wait for it......

Jamie Oliver Pasta Machine!!

I haven't been able to use it yet but oh my god am I excited! I also got myself some new pans and new spice rack! eeeek!

Okay now that part is out the way it is time to share with you what I actually made this weekend! first up here is a pic of my first Jamie Oliver 30 minute meals!! and it was absolutely delicious!!!

Tray Baked Chicken with squashed potatoes and creamed spinach! and on the side: Strawberry Slushie!!

Oh it was truly amazing!! and it took some grumbles and help from the man! to get it ready and on the table as I didn't read some instructions very well but eventually it was completed and the taste made up for the grumps :)

Then it was time for me to make some lunchbox snacks! now these I got the hang of fairly well :D I made some lemon meringue muffins (recipe will be up in the next few blogs) and some:

Jam Drop Biscuits

which I would love to share the recipe for right now :D so get that pen and paper out and give these a try!!
250g unsalted butter, softened
140g icing sugar
1 egg yolk
90g cream cheese, softened and cut into chunks
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
2 and 3/4 cups plain flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda
2 tablespoons each apricot, blueberry and raspberry jam

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Lightly grease three baking trays.

2. Cream the butter, icing sugar and egg yolk in a bowl using electric beaters until pale and fluffy, then beat in the creamcheese, vanilla extract and lemon zest until thick and smooth.

3. Combine the flour, baking powder, bi-carb sodaand 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl and using a wooden spoon, gradually stir into the creamed mixture until a soft dough forms. Set aside for 5 - 10 minutes, or until dough firms up.

4. break off small (15g) pieces of dough, shape into balls and flatten slightly to make 4cm rounds. Transfer to the prepared trays and make an indent with your thumb.

5. spoon 1/4 teaspoon of apricot jam into one-third of the biscuits, 1/4 teaspoon of blueberry jam into one-third, and 1/4 teaspoon of raspberry jam into the remaining one-third of the biscuits.

6. Bake for 10 - 12 minute, or until light golden. Cool for a few minutes on the tray and then transfer to a cooling rack.

These biscuits are best eaten on the day but can be kept in an airtight container for up to 2 days!! (as you can see I packaged mine up for school lunches) the leftovers will be eaten for snacks :P

My Kitchen Finally Rules!

It has been a long dream of mine to be able to cook amazingly and provide healthy and non processed meals for my family! But as everyone who knows me has realised i'm not that good in the kitchen, i'm ok but far from good
I tend to take the easy way out!
Instead of making my own pastries and sauces I just buy them ready made!
Instead of looking for the best parts of meat I just grab some already diced or stripped meat from my local Coles or Woolworths!

But things are certainly changing! I have decided that never making a risotto, lasagne, kids snacks and much more from scratch really needs to change! because honestly what are we feeding our children?? I have been watching shows like 'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution', Gordon Ramsey's 'Kitchen Nightmare's' and so many other shows and it just seems that homemade with love and care is just better for everyone!!
So this week I have started growing my herbs and spices collection (Now I really need a spice rack :P) and I got stuck into Jamie Olivers book 'Cook with Jamie' as well as some other baking books I just had collecting dust on the shelf!

And away I went.......

First on my list was to change my kids lunch boxes! from the LCM's, basic sandwiches and potato chips to something MUCH better! so they went to school with a salad and blueberry muffins and some fruit! sooo much better and even my youngest came home with a big smile on his face and said "can we please have salad everyday" WOW!!!

Once I had baked the muffins I just couldn't stop! so next on the list was a new dinner I had never tried before! Rissotto! so I grabbed my Jamie Oliver book and got started.......

Tomato, Basil and Ricotta Risotto

It was absolutely delicious and even my kids loved it! (although my youngest doesn't like tomatoes so he tried to pick them out) I will definitely be trying more homemade baking and cooking from now on!!!

So look out for some recipes and meal plans coming up very soon!!

And so it begins!

Well the first month of 2012 has been the busiest month of my life!

Taking on the new market which will be having its opening day in just 2 sleeps!......Oh My Gosh!!! and also trying to keep my online store Polkadot Bitz and Pieces running smoothly has been a hectic time BUT an extremely rewarding and enjoying time! I have loved organising, creating and being able to interact with such gorgeous and lovely people!

But now it is time to get everything else sorted too! so after my big opening day on Saturday for the Once Upon A Market I will be starting on my Home Organisation as well as my Health and Well being organisation because the way things are going now I just don't seem to have the time or energy for either and both are important for my own sanity and my health!

This week I am going to share with you my organisation plan for housework.

Yes I know not everybody loves this word. I know I certainly don't!
so I have tried to make this plan simple and easy......one hour a day!

By taking advice and borrowing sections of Martha Stewarts HOme Cleaning work sheet.....(the original documents can be found here) I came up with an everyday plan! where I check off the list everyday one room at a time, one hour! easy peasy!!

Here is what I will be doing:

Everyday I will be doing my normal tidy up and dishes etc but then.....

Monday ~ Dining Room ~
Dust surfaces
Sweeping and Mopping
Sorting our bills and mail (which are in brand new labelled office trays in the dining room)
Family's clothes washing

Tuesday ~ Main Hallway ~
Dusting skirting boards
Sweeping and Mopping
Shaking out and Vacuuming the front door Rug
Dusting and wipe down of the buffet table
(taking parcels down for Polkadot Bitz and Pieces)

Wednesday ~ Bits and Bobs ~
Cleaning back and front doors and windows (if needed)
Putting the bins out for collection
Door handles around the house
Washing the Family Clothes

Thursday ~ kitchen ~
Clean out Fridge
Clean Oven and Microwave inside and out
Wiping out the kitchen bins
Sweeping and Mopping
(parcels sent out for Polkadot Bitz and Pieces)

Friday ~ Lounge ~
Refresh magazines on coffee table
Vacuum Rug and Couches
Sweep and Mop
Wash the cushions

Weekend ~ Bathroom and Bedrooms ~
Wipe down all bathroom services
Sweep and mop bathroom
Vacuum bedrooms
Wash bedding

So that is my plan to keep my house organised and tidy without trying to cram everything into one day! I will keep you all updated on how it progresses! But so far so good......

What do you do to keep your home organised? Do you have a schedule or do you just take it as it comes?.........

Keep SMiling
