So far this year I have just made a few items:

Leek Soup

Potato Cauliflower cream soup

Pulled pork

Tex Mex Chili

Pork chops with mushroom and onion

Borscht

Cuban black beans

 

Soon I will need to corn another brisket for more corned beef and pastrami, but that is a serious adventure.

That pastry looks good - would you like to share the recipe?

Sure.

Have to say it was all made 'freehand-mode' , so no measuring cups or scales, only with my hand and eyes.

 

The applepie:

Dough: about 1/3rd of the cooking margarine pack, half pack (bread)flour and 1/5th sugar. (All 1kg packs)

half small coffeecup milk(about 8 spoons), half teaspoon dried yeast, two teaspoons soda (mcgareth) and half teaspoon salt.

 

* The yeast mixed with the milk, leave it to bubble

* Mix the baking soda and salt with the flour and sugar

* Start kneading the mix and margarine, add the yeast-milk mixture.

 

Leave it to rest in the fridge.

 

Filling:

Brown sugar, grounded cinnamon, apple and bananas

Peel and slice, mix the parts with two spoons brown sugar and three shakes of cinnamon(1-1.5 teaspoon) .

 

 

Take the dough, split in 3 parts (it was more then sufficient for one pie)

The first part knead again and roll out ('smash' flour on the table first)

Grease the tray/bowl/form. (I used an glass oven dish)

Put the flattened out dough carefully in the form, up to the top. Fill with the fillings.

I did apple in 2/3rd part of the pie and banana with few parts apple in 1/3rd.

Sprinkle some brown sugar over.

 

With the second dough, roll out flat, cut 'lines' and put it on the top in # pattern.

 

Dab your fingers in oil (I used sunflower oil) and 'wet' these raster.

(If you have egg, use that. On that day, I didn't have it.)

 

Bake off in the oven in 30-40 min on 5 (170'C) , this is to your own experience.

With my oven I have to turn the dish halfway the baking time, and put alufoil over the pie. (front of oven get hot more)

 

The third part of the dough was put back in the fridge.

 

Next day I took it out and kneaded it with half an whisked egg (other half kept in cup).

Greased up the cookie sheet, made some hearts for he missus and filled dough balls with chocolate and banana slices.

Used the other half of the egg to 'paint' the cookies. Sprinkle some seasalt here and there and the same with sugar and (pure)chocolate.

 

Bake off 15 minutes on 5 (170'c)

Stop baking when the cookies are still yellow and start to brown on the sides.

Thanks. I've never seen a pastry recipe with yeast and baking soda, but I will give it a try.

I cook for myself most days for 2 reasons: (1) I have been on keto for 2 years so I like to shop and cook within the keto guidelines, and (2) the wife can't resist throwing about 20 chillies in everything she makes.

 

Most common dishes I make in large quantities to freeze for days I can't be ar$ed are

 

Cream of broccoli soup

Cream of mushroom soup

Keema Pork (pork mince curry)

Slow cooked pork ribs

Crispy fried chicken

Roast chicken with cream cheese and bacon

Baked salmon with cream cheese stuffing

 

and many more

 

Obviously on keto so no rice, potatoes, pasta or bread, but a good substitute for rice is cauliflower rice. I use a lot of olive oil, butter and home made ghee in my cooking.

 

Recently bought some lamb steaks, shanks and mince from paleorobbie.com so am researching some new dishes.

Yesterday I decided to make a classic applepie with slighty modified ingredients.

No raisins and custard powder.

Ready for the oven.

Results:

Added another kilo to the scale 🙂

 

Did a little bit different this time.

One third part was filled with bananas, which came out surprisingly delicous.

Wow, what a healthy meal. Your liver and pancreas will thank you. 😕
