Ballotine of Chicken Stuffed With Spinach and Mushrooms


 "Mumma , why do you keep watching that man cook on youtube these days" was the question my little guy asked me a few days back. Yes , I have been watching quite a number of Jacques Pepin videos on youtube these  past few days.

The theme for this week at IHCC is C'est Magnifique!, create a magnificent french dish  of  Jacques P'epin.

Chickpea Salad


One thing that keeps me from making salads is I cant seem to be able to balance the dressing.  I keep meaning to make a salad using chickpeas as the boys love them and they are so healthy for you.

Pear Tart



Its Jacques Pe'pin at IHCC . The first time I saw one of his episodes on  AFC  , while in Malaysia,  I realized   that french cooking isn't as difficult and bland as I thought. This is one of the recipes that shows  how easy cooking can be.

During the mid term break , we headed to the island of Naifaru , a three hour speed boat ride  from Male' City. My hubby is from that island , its  where he grew up  and his aunts and uncles and his grandmother ( yes , she is still surviving at the ripe old age of 92).

How to Remove the Skin of Bell Peppers.


Removing the skin of bell peppers is quite fun.  Unlike peeling tomatoes ( where the tomatoes are plunged into boiling hot water for a few minutes to remove the skin), the peppers  have to be burnt till the skin is charred. I prefer this method than  using a vegetable peeler as the  pepper tastes much nicer as well .
