Some snippets of food!

You could say I am obsessed with cooking and there is many dishes that have never even made it my blog. Since my dinner was not all that successful last night I decided to put up some photos of some of those dishes.....

Nigella's mirin glazed salmon 

Fig frangipane tart
 it was not really green - that was a special affect added by my iphone camera!

Olive and Thyme bread 
This was made with olive tapenade, absolutely loved it.

Peach, Praline and Nougat Glacee with brandy snaps
These need to melt a little before they were really enjoyable, the peach cut through the sweetness of the glacee

Lime Curd and Basil Tarts
YUM! - it really works

Hazelnut Baklava 
This was very good indeed for those supersweet lovers 
(and I didn't use anywhere near as much butter as suggested!)

Fig and Soft Pecorino salad

Lentil Curry with Wholemeal Naan
This was last nights not so successful dinner - doesn't taste as nice as it looks!

Mini Apple Pies with Cheddar Crusts
These were really interesting to eat, savoury and sweet at the same time!
Kind of like a cheese and fruit platter :)

Mexican Hamburger Bake with Nigella's bbq mince
Not a big fan of this dish, the mince had the wrong texture

Fatayer Bes-Sabanekh
These were absolutely delicious, recipe here
