~Cook Up With donna hay and Irina~


Just before Christmas saw me do another Cook Up with donna hay and Irina


from donna hay magazine Issue 76 Aug/Sep 2014
Menu for the evening was

Chicken in White Wine with Lemon Potatoes (recipe over here)
Rose and Raspberry Trifles (recipe over here)
and I couldn't resist trying the
Cherry and Cardamom Pound Cake



Instead of Dry White Wine in the Chicken I used Dry Cider


The Chicken just about ready


Instead of Artichoke I used Snow Peas from our garden and some Sweet Potato


All dressed with Parmesan Cheese
and very tasty indeed!!!


The Trifle in an Eiffel Tower glass


Looking down into it


The Cake in the background
I couldn't stop at 1 Dessert to make I had to try out the Cherry and Cardamom Cake
After all it would be good for the next day's Morning Coffee, right?!




Well we couldn't resist just a little piece lol

Better get cracking as another Cook Up is waaaay overdue!!!

Bon Appetit........Dzintra

I'm imagining all those flavours as I'm reading, cider , rose, cardamon and I can practically smell them. Your meal all sounds wonderful. You are such a clever cook.

The chicken looks great.......but I think I'd go for two courses of dessert! Looks scrumptious.
