My Go-to Recipes & Monthly Must-Reads

Question of the month from Kristen: "What's your go-to recipe? Drink, dinner, dessert, whatever..."

I love this question for two reasons: Firstly - I'm all about sharing recipes that I love (check out my "food" tab on the menu bar).  Secondly - I can't wait to read all the other responses to this question - I've already added Kristen's "one-trick-pony" salmon to next week's menu plan!

DRINK: Mango Lassi (my recipe)


In a blender mix: 6 TB Kesar Mango Pulp, 2 tsp sugar, 1 TB plain yoghurt, 2 ice cubes & 1 cup milk. Can add more sugar or yoghurt according to taste. Kesar Mango pulp is produced by many different brands and is the secret to Indian-restaurant-style Mango Lassi!





I usually make this dish when we have people over - it's easy to cook, only uses a few (fresh) ingredients and ALWAYS tastes delicious! Previously posted about here.



Simple recipe resulting in fresh tasting cupcakes - I made this batch on the twins' birthday for their classmates - and their teachers told me how they couldn't resist the home-made flavor! One tip - don't be tempted to simplify the recipe by omitting self-raising flour and only using all-purpose flour...I did that once and ended up with very dense cupcakes!


What's your go-to recipe? PLEASE share - I LOVE tried & tested recipes!

    1. This is making me hungry after an intense work out! The penne looks amazing, I am always on the hunt for new pasta recipes! All I ever make is spaghetti with meat sauce. I would say I'm new at cooking, so I actually want to save everyone's recipes for the month's question :)

      1. Good idea - I'm bookmarking the recipes too! I love this pasta because it's basically impossible to mess up :-)

    3. I think you should do menu planning as a service. For a fee of course. I will be your first customer! ;)

      1. I'd do it for free for you...but I'd have to warn you that it includes at least one night of takeout and 2 nights of eating over at a family member's house LOL!!!
