I promised you recipes (there was a twitter conversation with at least one person) and I am keeping this promise. But I’m keeping it over at my fellow wordpresser and RWA sister’s blog.
I’m at Cathryn Hein’s Friday Feast today, talking a bit about food and books and giving recipes for quick hasty tasty Evans favourites: dukkha (as it is not made in the Middle East, I’m sure, but still tasting good), Cajun Rare Salmon, Smashed Potatoes and Greek Salad.
Yes, it is a culturally diverse meal ( I prefer ‘diverse’ to ‘messed up’). I live in Melbourne, a city which has never met a cuisine it didn’t want to absorb and run with. To be honest, the same could be said of much of Australia. In recent years (and apart from the Aboriginal Australians, it’s all recent) we are a country of immigrants so we have a lot of different influences in our kitchen pots. For which I, for one, am very grateful!
Anyway, to encourage you to hop over and have a look at the post, here are some pictures…

On Wednesday I promised you a recipe for chocolate pie and since I would hate to be called a chocolate tease, today I will come good on my promise. (Update: this should have been up yesterday, I don’t know where my brain is this week!)
I must apologise for my presentation and photography: my food styling is not going to win any prizes any time soon. But the taste will make up for it. This pie will silence a table of guests, make you friends and possibly even sway a lover into your arms – and it’s EASY.
Here’s the recipe:

I know Wednesdays are supposed to be about reviews and I know it’s probably rude to review your own quick hasty-tasty dinner-making, but if it bothers you, pretend someone else made this okay?
Okay, now we have that out of the way, I would like to introduce you to the very easy, very cheap, quick, really quite healthy and ridiculously tasty (for what is in it) dinner that is my:
Creamy Cauliflower Soup
This soup is the kind of thing you make when you have no idea what is for dinner and you walk into the supermarket and find that cauliflowers as big as your head are $1.50 each. (And yes, I know it looks like high-quality wall-paper paste with speckles, but you try photographing cauliflower soup! It tastes good.)
