Eat & cook your heart out … July 2020

I tried a new gnocchi recipe the other day as I had some ricotta to use up and it was so yum I had to include it in this blog 😋

Homemade lemonade

Summer time = Lemonade time!
I prefer my lemonade to be less sweet – just make more syrup if you have a sweet tooth 🙂

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

1.5 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
10 cups cold water

  • Make the syrup by boiling sugar and 1/2 cup of water to until sugar is dissolved (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Allow to cool for 20-30 minutes.
  • Combine syrup, lemon juice and cold water until well mixed.
  • Keep in bottles in the fridge and consume within 2 days.

Fried gnocchi with broad beans, parma ham, ricotta and sage

I tried this recipe for the first time yesterday as I had some ricotta to use up – it was super yum, quick & easy. I used frozen broad beans, it probably works well with peas or edamame too.

Vietnam on a plate.
Pretty easy to make and goes down a treat every single time.
