Pasta Pillows

@ Sin Ming Cook house / Bakery / Whatever

Here’s a little something I tried making from one of my various cook books: Ravioli, cute little bite sized pillows of pasta filled with as little or as much ingredient as you can imagine.  I found this recipe in “Your Place or Mine?”; a cook book co-authored by two of MasterChef Australia’s judges: Gary Mehigan and George Colombaris.

A Long Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away..

Sin Ming Cookhouse / Bakery / Whatever

What do you get when you mix the internet, a bag of candy and a 3 day weekend?  crazy stuff happening in the kitchen!  While surfing the information super highway I stumbled on a zany recipe on one of my favorite sites: The Pioneer Woman; yes the same lady who introduced me the using chipolate peppers as part of a slow cooked pulled pork recipe.  The recipe I took and adapted was for a Milky Way cake, I grew up eating these little bars through my childhood, so why not make a grown up desert out of it!
Before I go on I have to state here that there is a slight difference between the American milky way (which is used in Ree’s recipe) and the European / Australian version of the milky way (which I used).  The American version has included with it a layer of caramel (YUM!) which is similar to another bar that I grew up eating: a Mars bar!

Howdy Y’all

I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for the longest time: Deep Fried Buttermilk Chicken.  Without a deep fryer I’ve been rather hesitant to try and shallow fry these tasty morsels; however thanks to mom (the ever generous soul that she is) we’ve temporarily borrowed her Philips Air Fryer.

A Visit to the Star

Star Casino, Darling Harbor

“So Traci I’m going to be heading over to Sydney, do you want to meet up while I’m back?”
“Sure, let’s ‘Zumbo’!” was the reply and with that, I met up with a fellow cook and backer a the new Adriano Zumbo restaurant at the newly renovated ‘The Star’ Casino.  At the time of our visit the restaurant wasn’t completely opened.. the desert sushi train concept was working but not yet for public use, everywhere we looked we just saw macarons, macarons and more macarons!

Have Kitchen Will Cook

Various Kitchens, Sydney, Australia

Supplemental to my  previous post of my auditions for MasterChef: Australia the upside to me being there is the opportunity to cook for the family!  Some of you may think that a holiday is taking time away and doing nothing; but for me it was time well spent in the kitchen cooking for those that mean the most to me: Family!
