Karen Martini is LITERALLY the Goddess of salads.

The way this lady has (time and time again,) seemingly effortlessly tossed JUST the right number of perfectly matched ingredients together to create a phenomenal salad recipe is beyond me.

And this Salad of hers that I bring to you today is no exception.

I was lucky enough to meet Karen in person a couple of weeks ago and I watched on as she threw this little baby together before my eyes.

NEAPOLITAN CHEESECAKE 4

August 18, 2014

DDAS

Just HEARING the word “Neapolitan” takes me back to the 80′s.

It’s Summer.

I’m sitting on the dark red leather couch at my grandparents house next to my siblings and we each have a small bowl containing 3 scoops of ice cream.

Pink.

White.

Brown.

When my grandma isn’t looking my siblings dish me their pink whilst my sister and I give our brother our white and my brother and I give our sister our brown. We each have a bowl full of our favourite colour now.

Everyone’s happy.

The moment I laid eyes on iambaker’s Neapolitan Cheesecake I JUST KNEW I HAD TO MAKE IT. (I mean SERIOUSLY! What a STUNNING cake and what a GORGEOUS recipe. This lady is super, super talented and if you don’t follow her blog already you really should start RIGHT NOW!)

And make it I did.

FB 2

Over the past week I have uploaded two OUTRAGEOUSLY delicious recipes, each one featuring a spectacular Woolworths Gold product.

ELIZA

The second recipe, RECIPE B, was QUATTRO FORMAGGI PASTA which you can find by clicking HERE. The Woolworths Gold product that I used was the awesome Eliche Giganti Pasta.

AAADFG

Do me a favour and MAKE BOTH OF THESE! They are truly outstanding recipes (even if I do say so myself!) I cannot tell you the number of emails I have received over the past few days (from GREEKS!) telling me that the Loukoumades are the best they have ever tasted. And trust me, being a Greek myself and knowing what tough critics they can be when it comes to food, that is a SERIOUS compliment!

Anyway, heres a little info about Woolworths Gold and their products:

Woolworths Gold embodies the pinnacle of quality and craftsmanship. Every Gold product contains any number of world-class ingredients from an array of authentic, artisan producers. The result is a range of traditionally handcrafted, mouthwatering masterpieces that we are very proud to call our own. And, of course, because they’re from Woolworths, it’s everyday gourmet at everyday prices.

SO – who wants to win NOT ONLY a MASSIVE HAMPER of Woolworths Gold products, but ALSO a WOOLWORTHS GIFT VOUCHER so that you can shop (for free!) for the additional ingredients you need to create your own Woolworths Gold inspired MASTERPIECES!?!

That’s right, TWO OF YOU will EACH WIN a Woolworths Gold Hamper and Voucher Prize Pack valued at $250!!!! I HAVE TWO PRIZES TO GIVE AWAY! BOTH OF THEM AWESOME! I CAN BARELY CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!

So, how do you enter!?

AS ALWAYS, it’s super easy!

All you need to do to enter is choose A or B as your favourite recipe! Do you prefer the Loukoumades (A) or the Pasta (B)??

Are you following me on FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM and TWITTER yet!? I would be if I was you! Well OF COURSE I would…. moving on…

Greek Doughnuts with Honey Syrup, Cinnamon and Walnuts.

Yes.

Please.

And.

Thank you.

This is one of my all time favourite recipes and I CANNOT believe that I haven’t published it earlier.

My sister asked me the other day why I hadn’t done a Loukoumades (Pronounced Loo – Koo – Ma -Thes) post yet and I didn’t have the answer!

PLEASE TRY THESE!

PLEASE!

I beg you!

They will change your life. I PROMISE.

Note: DO NOT BE FRIGHTENED WHEN A RECIPE CONTAINS YEAST!!! Don’t let that put you off! There is absolutely NOTHING difficult about this recipe. With regards to the yeast, all you need to do to it is open it up and pour it into a bowl. Swear. That’s it. (Actually, there is ONE little part of this recipe that is a little challenging and that’s the part where you need to fry the dough and create “perfecty round doughnuts”… getting the shape you desire takes practice! That said, mine are NEVER all perfect and they always taste amazing!

PHOODIE’S ‘EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK’ DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS 1

July 31, 2014

AASRE

BERT

CADTR

…And I mean if you wanted to throw the kitchen sink in too, who am I to stop you?!

Ok, so, I know I ask this quite often, but;

1) Can you stir?

2) Do you own ONE bowl and ONE SPOON?

3) Do you have 2 spare seconds?

If you answered yes to all of the above (like I KNOW you did) then THESE muffins are for YOU!

SO EASY! Customisable… (is that a word?! You know how sometimes you say / hear a word and then wonder if it really IS a word or if you made it up? This happens to me ALL THE TIME… actually it happened with the word ‘fork’ once and FOR HOURS AND YEARS (ok well, maybe for just a couple of minutes) I genuinely had to ask myself if it was a word or not..) But back to the muffins! Simple to make, fast to bang together, and super delicious to chomp on, there is not one reason in the world why these should not be in your oven IMMEDIATELY.

PHOODIE’S Nutella Hot Chocolate with Fudge-dipped TimTam-crusted Marshmallows 1

July 21, 2014

AAAFG

AABERTY

AADERER

A little while ago I guest posted over at THE ONLY Ski and Snow related blog worth knowing about, snowsbest.com. I shared my Nutella Hot Chocolate with Fudge-dipped Tim Tam-crusted Marshmallows recipe with her readers and they LOVED it! (Ummmmm Who T H Wouldn’t!?)

Anyway, today I was flicking through some snaps and came across these ones and thought “Oh goodness! I MUST also publish this at PHOODIE as I couldn’t bear the thought of any of my readers missing out on this phenomenal creation!”

So here y’all go!

As always, let me know if you whip it up. Tag me on Social Media, (INSTAGRAM- @phoodiegram TWITTER- @phoodietweets FACEBOOK- www.facebook.com/phoodieblog)

I love seeing AND sharing your pics :)

INGREDIENTS

Serves 2

For the Marshmallows

6 Marshmallows (big)
1/3 cup Dark Chocolate chips
2 tablespoons Thickened Cream
2 Tim Tams, crushed

For the Hot Chocolate

2 cups full cream milk
2 tablespoons thickened cream
2 tablespoons Nutella
Cocoa for dusting

METHOD

To make the marshmallows

1) Place the chocolate and the cream in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on medium for about 20 – 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir until contents are completely combined.

2) Dip one end of the marshmallow into the hot fudge and then dip the same end into the crushed TimTams. Place on a baking paper lined tray. Once all marshmallows are done, leave on the tray to set.

To make the hot chocolate

1) Place the milk, cream and Nutella into a small saucepan. Stir over a low to medium heat for about 5 minutes or until all ingredients are well combined.

2) Pour hot chocolate into two cups.

3) Serve each with 3 marshmallows.

N.B Once marshmallows are dropped into the hot chocolate they will float fudge side down. The fudge and TimTam bits will melt into the drink alongside the marshmallows.

It is now that you should dust the top of the drink with cocoa!

ENJOY!
