I made a sauce out of
  • olive oil
  • honey mustard
  • white wine vinegar
  • salt/pepper

got a bowl and added the cucumber, radish and sauce.



At my work they are always making these 'home' fries with the burgers. They just smell delicious and as we cant eat them there i had to make some tastiers ones at home. This is all from that box of organic veggies that i get. I got these small potatoes and a couple big parsnips.

frozen berry sauce

I was starving after a day of work yesterday and found out that i had basically no food, except some stuff in the freezer. I found a roll of pinwheel cookies so i decided to bake them up. With that i made a sauce out of some of the frozen berries i had. I had some mixed berries and some red currant berries in the freezer. Im not usually a fan of frozen stuff, but i was in dire need of it.

I started by adding
  • large handful of frozen red currants
  • handful of frozen mixed berries
  • tbs of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
to a pot and turn it to med heat. heat it till it starts to boil and simmer for a couple minutes till it thickens a bit.

Have them with some cookies... and Enjoy


stuffed onion

As i like to make one recipe based on the box of veggies i get, therefore i came up with this one. Its quite different and very tasty...and as per usual quite simple. I appologize before about all the sexual connotations, however as we all know, sex and food go well together...so maybe it makes sense

Get a medium sized onion, like size of your fist. (unless you have tiny or massive hands...than adjust accordinly). some delicious monastery styled sausages.
  • Peel
  • cut top and bottom off, so you can see the inner layers
  • cut out a hole in center (big enough to fit the sausage into)
  • stuff sausage into onion
  • put on a sheet of tinfoil (big enough to wrap around onion)
now for the other flavouring i added
  • a dash of hot sauce
  • a dash of maple syrup (or substitute)
  • a dash of vegetable oil
  • a tiny dash of sesame oil
  • some black sesame seeds
wrap it all up in the tinfoil and put in oven at 350 F for 45 min. Can unwrap at end so that it makes top golden brown.

As i said, its pretty simple...pretty hands on, but will definitely impress some people.
