Extra Puffy Brazilian Cheese Puffs, Quirky Cooking

Extra Puffy Brazilian Cheese Puffs! (Pão De Queijo)

We love it when my sister makes us Brazilian Cheese Puffs!! 😍 They never last long unless I hide some, so she usually makes a double batch, and we keep half the batter in the fridge for the following day. They are the BEST hot out of the oven, sliced open and slathered with butter... YUM!!!! But they're also great cold, and since they are nut free they make the perfect lunchbox filler. There’s plenty of recipes for cheese puffs out there, but these ones seem to rise better than others I've tried, and they don’t deflate as they cool due to the method of chilling the batter really well before baking. This recipe is gluten free, grain free and nut free.

Quirky Cooking 10th Birthday

Quirky Cooking’s 10th Year – and a Birthday Giveaway!!

Can you believe Quirky Cooking is now in its' 10th year?? I'm kind of amazed it's already been 10 years, but part of me also feels like it surely must've been longer - so much has happened in that time! My own personal health journey (and that of my family) has taken me in directions I never imagined 10 years ago, and the blog has come along for the ride...

Herb-Crusted Fish, Quirky Cooking

Lebanese Style Herb-Crusted Fish

It's nearly Christmas! If you are feeling inspired to make something extra special for the holidays, you can try your hand at Fouad's recipe for Sayadiyeh, which he recently demonstrated on SBS Food Safari! However, this year, we are keeping things much simpler. In the absence of an army of assistants, and in the heat of the Australian kitchen, simpler dishes are a must. Today we are sharing a recipe for Lebanese-style herb crusted fish. This recipe is adapted to use a Thermomix® method - you will find the original 'conventional' method in our cookbook, Life-Changing Food. We love that this dish can be prepared ahead of time and eaten at room temperature, or even cold. A perfect addition to the Christmas banquet!
