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!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge, Quirky Cooking

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge

What happens when you want to make chocolate but you have no cacao butter, so you use butter instead? FUDGE!! This fudge was a delicious accident, and we couldn't be happier with the result! Use whatever nut butters and nuts you prefer - we thought we'd revisit our childhood with this peanut butter version. It's so creamy and delicious, we've had to taste test it quite a few times!! ;) Check out the recipe notes for dairy free, nut free, and reduced sugar variations.
