Over the past few days I have been trying out some of the recipes that I have found on various food blogs on the internet.
The first was for Baileys Creme Brulee which I found at the Berry Simple blog. I love Creme Brulee at the best of times but when I saw that this one had Baileys Irish Cream in it I had to give it a go.
This was a really easy recipe to prepare. Basically whisk the eggs and sugar and then add the warmed cream and Baileys.
The result was a beautifully creamy dessert and since we had a blow torch we were able to recreate the hard caramelized top that is characteristic of creme brulees. This is definitely a ‘must try’ so head over to Berry Simple for the full recipe.
While you are over there you may as well try their recipe for the Cauliflower Cheese which you will find in the same blog post.
We gave this a go as well since I love the taste of Dijon mustard which I thought was an interesting addition to this recipe.
The cook in the house had to end up making double the quantity of sauce since one big cauliflower was really way too much for the amount of sauce in the recipe.
This was good though and we will be making it again. You can get the full recipe here.
The last recipe I tried was the Pumpkin Pie. Now I am a big fan of Pumpkin Pie but I wanted a really simple recipe and I found one over at Cuisine Capers.
Since I am terrible at making pie crusts I just purchased a pre-made – which is why the pie crust in the photo looks so good. My pie crusts normally fall to bits and really I just couldn’t be bothered with the effort.
I actually made this recipe twice as the pies came out so well and it was so easy to do. The first time I made it I didn’t really have the right quantities of ingredients but I just mixed what I had together and just made sure it tasted good and surprisingly enough it came out great.
