Whats been cooking lately

As you probably know if you follow my blog, I like my food... I like to make it and I like to eat it. In fact I would pick eating out at a cafe or restaurant over buying new clothes. Hands down. Weird I know!( It may have something to do with fact that all my eating has led to looking a little tubby which makes shopping for clothes sucky! Time to get back in Tri training mode!)
Anyhoo thought I would share some pics of some food I have tried out lately.

Sesame Crusted NZ Salmon with potato rounds on Spinach with hollandaise sauce

So was a nice touch with the seseme seeds on the outside...will do again sometime! The holandaise sauce was a cheat from "Kato" because I have never tried to make my own before. So good!

Mocha Cheesecake cupcakes
These were a modified version of my Mocha Cheesecake. I found doing it this way made more portions, was a great little treat for my coffee group buddies.

Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake with raspberry

This was a bit of an experiment mixing two of my favourite loves together chocolate brownie and cheesecake. Alas I find it so hard to get the brownie right sometimes. Definitely needed more chocolate. Will try again maybe with Paisley Jades Fudge brownie recipe

What about you...if you had a few spare dollars...clothes or cafe?

YUM YUM YUM - I am totally with you on this one! FOOD is GREAT!!! I DO like having new clothes, but am finding it hard to make anything look good on me due to preggy tum factor grrr (not that I find it easy when I'm not!) Man those cheesecakes look divine. I would like the salmon except it makes me ill but it does LOOK delicious!;-)
I'm gonna try do a post today with a super easy brownie recipe ..

Mmmmmmm - so glad I am one of your coffee group buddies that gets to sample all of your delicious wares! Keep it up ;)

Clothes probably over food - but they're pretty close.

i have never actually cooked salmon myself but I have been leaning towards trying too lately. Just to be extra nosey how much does that amount of salmon cost?
