Earlier this week, we were lucky enough to receive some sauces from Roza’s Gourmet Sauces- a family-owned company based in Brisbane that makes all-natural, gluten-free delights. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a lover of all things saucy- dips, marinades…the list goes on. So I was delighted when Roza’s gave us their Chilli Ginger…

IMGP7390

Here at Boy Meets Girl Meets Food, we love a good noodle dish. However, I often find that they can become quite heavy and drowned out with sauces, so yesterday I set about making a light and simple noodle dish (to accompany a special recipe coming tomorrow!). For this dish, you will need the following:…

Beetroot Subji

My mother, while an incredible cook, rarely ventures outside of her comfort zone while cooking Indian food. However, that changed about a year ago, when she discovered the magic that is the farmer’s market. One day she came home holding a bunch of beets (literally), and out of having no idea what to do with…

For this soup, you will need the following: 6 cups…

Since moving back home, my mom and I have developed a special tradition of reserving Sunday afternoons for cooking. We make anything from 3-5 Indian dishes, something that she used to do alone (she’s a rockstar)! One of my long-time favourite Indian dishes was also one of the first ones I learnt how to make-…

October 1st was my dear friend Gabby’s birthday, so a friend and I decided to whip up some fall-inspired sweet treats for her. I found this delicious recipe for Pumpkin Nutella Bars on the food blog TheGunnySack, and we followed it basically to a tee. The only differences we made was using a smaller pan,…

My favourite tradition whilst living in Los Angeles was Friday night Mexican food and margaritas…mmmm I could definitely go for some El Flamin’ Taco goodness right now.  But sadly being back in Aus (although Mexican food is exploding here) I cannot get my El Flamin’ al pastor tacos, and thus have to resort to fending…

If you’ve got some decrepit, liver-spotted bananas fouling up your fruit bowl, don’t toss them out – mash them up and turn them into this simple breakfast loaf, and if you have one spare, wash it down with a banana milkshake (1 banana, 1 scoop vanilla ice cream, 1 drop vanilla essence, 1 slurp milk…
