Noms: Cook like a crazed woman when scorned

If you read my blog regularly - and I hope you do :) I get into a cooking/baking frenzy when I am upset.
So guess what I did on Monday night. And yes it does take me that long to get blog posts up. Things were cray cray here this week so hence the delay.

Scanpan Accent 24cm Box
First of all, let me state that the Scanpan Accent fry pan was gratefully sponsored by Kitchenware Direct. The lovely Brad sent this to me really quickly! If you have missed their recent sale, get on the mailing list for awesome Scanpan discounts! I bought a wok(yes I was a Chinese with no wok) and a little 20cm nonstick frying pan in the recent sale. I had to cook this magic marinara, the recipe was courtesy off Nat. Thanks again!!

As this was her special family recipe. I took out the big guns. Check out the shiny frying pan. I am not used to a stainless steel pan. But the only difference is you probably need more oil than non-stick and you need to have the pan hot before you put your ingredients in. However, I probably would not use this for frying an egg - that's only because I am lazy to have to clean it after. This is dishwasher safe - I had to check this a few times because I am paranoid of ruining my cook ware. And I am lazy a big fan of the dishwasher!

Because I like shiny things .. look at my Marc x MJ phone cover!

Magic Marinara was SO EASY to make and honestly Mick is not really a fan of marinara but he loves this now. I am a bit embarrassed to post this picture as I think it does not look as glam as Nat's or Mama Nat's version. But we slurped it up! Now that I am writing this post, I have forgotten that I am out of white wine for cooking. Bah!!

And because I was upset about what happened in Chanel. I also made a toffee apple pudding. This is a caramel like self saucing pudding with sliced apples at the bottom of the pudding mix. And also ... we ran out of butter making this. Can you believe it?! This house has no food at all! I have not made this since I was house bound as a stay at home mum (those were very dark days) with Pickles and D. I used to make it so often that everyone on Twitter thought I was a domestic goddess.. which I clearly am! I think I have associated this with being at home and could not bear to bake it after that. I don't know if I have missed eating this .. not sure. I think I prefer a chocolate self saucing one. :)

The cleaning up bit of using this frying pan was really easy. We just stuck it into the dishwasher. The pan is sturdy, the handle did not get hot and I really thought that the first thing I would make with this was a frittata as it is also oven safe. I am loving this slick looking frying pan so much, I am now addicted to Scanpan and stalking Kitchenware Direct for their sales!

  3. I am fairly sure I could eat all of that pudding in one sitting!
    I am moving out again soon and trying to decide what pots and pans to buy, have been also stalking the Kitchenware Direct site and trying to decide! It's a toss up between Scanpan and the Kitchenaid ones, as i like the idea of red pans to match my Kitchenaid (because I am a bit of a loser!)
