The Saturday Kitchen – A Recipe for Decluttering the Vegetable Compartment

I've decided to be a little stricter with myself and the vegetable compartment of my fridge lately. I sometimes find the vegetable drawer left with bits and pieces that are threatening to expire on me. Half a capsicum here, and slice of butternut squash there, some cauliflower I have almost forgotten about. It's a mish-mash … Continue reading The Saturday Kitchen – A Recipe for Decluttering the Vegetable Compartment

We try to eat healthily most of the time but with high cholesterol, I am trying to weave in more whole grain foods into my diet.

The Saturday Kitchen – Szechuan Cucumber Pickles

I found three Japanese cucumbers lurking at the bottom of my fridge the other day. They were a little past their absolute prime though by no means badly compromised. But there were plans to go out for dinner that night and the next few days, so leaving the cukes to languish was not a wise … Continue reading The Saturday Kitchen – Szechuan Cucumber Pickles
