Hello my lovely’s I have started posting on the new blog so would love for you to pop on over and check it out my latest posts.
See you there, Jennifer xx
It’s Monday morning, kids are playing, hubby is working out in the shed and well I decided that I would work on my new blog instead of folding the washing. What do you think?
Would love for you to stop by and have a look around. Still have a few things to finish but I’m pretty happy with it.
Hello my lovely’s how are you all been in my absence. I have been really busy with Bits & Bobs 4 bubs and have recently changed the blog over to wordpress.
I have also finally made my very first nappy bag set. It comes with a matching nappy wallet and change mat. I just love the Heather Bailey fabric that I have had sitting in my fabric stash waiting for to find out what it will be turned into.
Another new item to the store are my waterproof seat pads for potting training to use in your pram/stroller or car seat. I have a few in both stores and lots more all cut out reading to be sewn together and listed.
But during all this I have also still been cooking and making a few little things here and there which I can’t wait to share with you. But first it’s the school holiday time and hubby is off as well so we have lots of things planned with the kids.
I am also going to try and fit sometime in between our outings to change Eat Craft Sow over to wordpress. After changing over Bits & Bobs 4 Bubs I just love that I have better control over the blog and can add a few more features.
Anyway hope you all have a fabulous next 2 weeks and hopefully I will see you all over at the new blog. (I will be importing everything over from this blog so that you can still find any of your favorite tutorials, recipes etc.
I thought I would share a recipe that I found watching Good Chef Bad Chef yesterday. Adrian Richardson cooked french toast with nutella and so this morning I made it for the kids cos what kid doesn’t like nutella.
It is so easy to make and you don’t have to cook it in a frying pan, you can bake them in the oven for around 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. You can find the recipe here.
Now it’s not something I would make everyday but it is a nice treat and I am planning on making it for brekkie when we go camping next.
Enjoy I know the kids did this morning.
PS. the site has the picture around the wrong way but I’m sure you would love to make the french toast topped with banana too!!!
I was going to call this a savory strudel but I think it is more like a giant fancy sausage roll. I love the chicken strudels that you can buy at the supermarket but thought I would make a version of my own using sausage mince.
You can buy it from the meat department and some butchers for around $2 – $3 for about 500g ands I was able to make two strudels out of all the ingredients for under $12.
What I used to make one:
1 sheet of frozen puff pastry
1 250g of sausage meat
125g of sundried tomatoe parmesan and cashew dip/spread
125g of ricotta
1 egg whisked
sesame seeds for the top (this is optional)
handful of baby spinach
So basically leave your puff pastry out on the bench to defrost and before it is too soft add all your toppings and if you can leave the film that divides the sheets on the bottom as this will help you to roll the strudel. All you need to do is layer your ingredients on your puff pastry starting with the sausage meat. Spread the sausage meat on 3/4 of your puff pastry. This is so you have enough to seal the strudel and to stop your filling from melting out underneath.
Then spread on the sundried tomatoe dip, then top that with the ricotta and finish with the spinach. To roll fold the puff pastry about an inch and start to peel the film back and slowly roll the strudel to the end.
Now if you are going to freeze this for another day use the film to wrap the strudel before wrapping again in glad wrap. To cook wash the top of the strudel with the whisked egg and top with the sesame seeds. Bake in an over at 180 for about 30-35 mins. Leave to cool slightly before cutting.
We had this for dinner one night with salad and boiled potatoes that were grown in the veggie garden and i froze the second one for another day. You can also replace the sausage meat with chicken mince or turkey mince, just season the mince first.
And to get 2 strudels out of your mixture just make sure that you purchase 250g containers of the sundried tomatoe spread and ricotta and for the spinach buy it by the bag.
Would love to know what fillings you come up with over at my Facebook page
