Omelette With Mushrooms, Parsley & Parmesan

11 Oct

Usually I eat omelettes and eggs for breakfast but that time I prepared this omelette for lunch; why not, it’s a full, rich, savoury meal.

I also like scrambled eggs, and sometimes I sauté some sliced mushrooms and cherry tomatoes with olive oil before pouring over the eggs.

For this recipe, I beat in a bowl 2 eggs, season with salt and pepper and then I stir in some grated parmesan. Set aside. 

In a hot skillet, I drizzle some olive oil, sautée the mushrooms, then after few minutes I add 2 chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle some chopped parsley. Remove from skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet, without adding olive oil, on low heat, add the eggs and let cook for couple of minutes until golden then flip to the other side. Add the mushroom mixture on top and some parmesan.

Bon Appétit.


Madeleines aux tomates séchées, au mozzarella et au basilic

31 May

These are my first home-made madeleines. I found a book last week about madeleines at “La braderie du livre”, very interesting book, has different kinds of madeleines, salty and sweet. And all simple and easy to make. I liked the book. So I bought it. I love their “coquille”, shell shape, so nice. And to make madeleines we have to have the ” moules à madeleines” so I went and bought one too. I love cooking-shopping.

These madeleines have sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. Three yummi delicious ingredients combined in one small cute cake.

They can be served as appetizers or as a side dish for a green salad. I’ll be baking more madeleines later on, sweet and salty too.

Tagliatelle al Pollo con Funghi: Chicken Tagliatelle with Mushrooms

29 May

We had my sister and her family over lunch today. We promised them once that we’re gonna invite them to eat our special meal. As you will see and read, we eat alot of pasta and mushroom… I love these kind of italian dishes. We won’t mind eating almost everyday some kind of pasta and add to it few mushroom. I would love to make my meals from scratch; starting by the pasta… I find fresh hand-made food, fresh pasta, fresh grated cheeses, fresh vegetables picked from the market or the farm giving the best real taste, and a dish full of nutrients. One day i will start making my own fresh pasta at home using fresh ingredients.

The following recipe is so easy to make. Once you prepare all the ingredients aside, then the rest is simple.

Mmmmm, the best ever is the smell of mushrooms frying in the pan… it’s just great… The mix of smells was surrounding us and it woke up our senses. yummi…

The meal was so satisfying so delicious, we ate till we were full…

We were happy we put the sun-dried tomatoes because they added a unique sweet taste to the meal.
