March has been a very good month for #CookOnceEatTwice with 20 entries and lots of variety. There were breads, cakes, desserts, vegetarian dishes and meat dishes. I will certainly have lots of choice when I decide which of the dishes to make next month! To see which dish I made from last month then scroll down to the bottom.
The first entry was this Classic Fish Pie with Perfect Creamy Mash by the Why Chef. I was delighted to discover this blog and love all the explanations and ‘why’s.
Next was Food Bod with this lovely Aubergine Bhaji made with a Homemade Curry Paste. It looks beautiful and healthy.
Although I love traditional fruity hot cross buns my husband definitely prefers chocolate ones so I know these Gluten-Free Hot Cross Buns from The Gluten Free Alchemist would be very popular in my house.
Sometimes frittatas can seem a little boring but this one is anything but. I love the use of the celery leaves on this Twaróg (Polish Farmer’s Cheese) and Celery Leaf Frittata by De Tout Coeur Limousin.
One day soon I really need to try Speculoos to find out just how good it is! I am always happy to have some streusal and spice in my cakes so this Speculoos Marble Cake with Speculoos Streusal by Family Friends Food would certainly be something I’d love to try.
There was then another sweet entry from Only Crumbs Remain who baked this fantastic Jelly Bean Illusion Cake to celebrate her first blogiversary. Not only does it look good, with raspberry and white chocolate layers it must taste amazing too!
I do like my pies and love the flavours in this Butternut Squash, Leek and Ricotta Lattice Pie by The Baking Explorer.
Curry has to be the ultimate #CookOnceEatTwice recipe. The flavours just get better and better the next day and so this easy Lamb Rogan Josh by Easy Peasy Foodie definitely ticks all the boxes for me!
I often cook pulled pork as it’s so versatile and this Sous Vide Pulled Pork by The Why Chef sounds amazing! I do believe you can never have too many pulled pork recipes!
Next was The Gluten Free Alchemist with this gorgeous Roast Dinner Quiche. I love how the leftovers from a roast dinner can be used to make a quiche which in itself provides enough leftovers for the next day as well.
With Easter coming up, Only Crumbs Remain linked up these gorgeous Simnel Cupcakes. I can’t resist marzipan so would love to try one. And Little Miss Spice would like one of those little chicks too!
I love Spanish style croquettes and these Lamb Croquettes with Chipotle Sauce by Food Eat Love sound absolutely delicious!
Next was this tasty Buckwheat Banana Nut Bread by From Plate to Pen. It sounds delightfully nutty and I know I want to have a go at baking with buckwheat flour now too.
My own entry was this healthy black quinoa and chicken salad with a lemon and parsley dressing. If you’ve never tried black quinoa then do, especially if you like slightly crunchy grains.
It was followed by this beautifully spiced vegetarian Sarson Ka Saag, Potato, Paneer and Pea Pie by Allotment 2 Kitchen.
The next entry was a slow cooked Vegetable and Bean Stew by Hijacked by Twins. It sounds like the perfect easy meal for feeding a family and providing lots of leftovers.
Allotment 2 Kitchen then contributed another delicious vegetarian dish packed with greens: this Supernatural Green Quiche with Spirulina Shortcrust Pastry.
Even after eating so much chocolate over the last few days I am still tempted by this Gluten Free Chocolate Bread Pudding, made by The Gluten Free Alchemist with leftover hot cross buns. It looks irresistible!
If you’ve ever struggled to fill cannelloni you’ll know why I love the sound of these Pasta Bolognese Roll Ups by The Why Chef. They look deliciously cheesy but are actually quite healthy too!
The final entry was these Energising Chestnut Chia Chocolate Pancakes and a Maple Tahini Sauce from Tin and Thyme. They sound unusual but at the same time absolutely yummy. Just take a look!
So thank you oncea gain to everyone who entered but before I go, I promised last month to have a go myself at one of the entries. I was torn between a couple of recipes but in the end I chose the Vegemite Burger by Green Gourmet Giraffe, except mine was a Marmite Burger. I loved it and so did Master Spice who is a Marmite lover. Here’s my picture below and do pop over to Green Gourmet Giraffe for the vegemite burger recipe.
The linky for April will be open soon so do come back to link up any #CookOnceEatTwice recipes. Once again I’ll choose one of my favourites from this month to make before the next round up.
