Braised Aubergine with Homemade Garlic Chilli Sauce
For fear of getting a cold plate of food, you can probably tell that I rushed taking the photos. There was also a strange angle of daylight in the one spot of the house that isn't shrouded in darkness, so the photos don't do this one justice. Go by faith, t...

Banana and Passionfruit Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting
This cake was the brainchild of my dad, who, tired and dazed
from a 3am wake-up call as we plotted down the M6 to collect mum from Heathrow,
strung a few words together to formulate an answer to my question of what birthday cake he wanted. He's a man of mor...

One minute salsa
Maybe it's an indication of uneducated tastebuds, but I much prefer sloppy, commercial salsa to the fresh stuff which requires chopping lots of fresh ingredients. Still, shop bought salsa is expensive, so here is a happy medium which takes under a minute to...

Basil and peach panna cotta. Raspberry 'leather' (really just a homemade fruit roll-up) and mini raspberry macaroons. Taken in natural light with a 3.3 mp Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S75. Used Gimp for a bit of adjustment to white balance and BeFunky for a touch up on the glass behind (yes, its actually proved a really useful site!)

Had a bit of an issue with the flexibility of the roll up; it was hard to get a nicely flowing shape.

Grilled salmon with fennel, caper and olive cannellini bean mash and a tomato courgette vinaigrette.

Taken with a 3.3 mega pixel Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S75. Taken in natural light, very slight alterations to white balance and contrast. Next time I'd take it at slightly more of an angle to see the side of the fish more, but I tried that this time and the light bouncing off that side was too strong for the rest of the photograph.

You can find the rest of the pics here: http://sugarandtwocents.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/grilled-salmon-with-fennel-and.html

Indonesian Kale (Mallum)
This is my  version of a popular Indonesian dish, Mallum or Mallung which means 'to mix up'. That's what I love about these kind of recipes - there is no right or wrong, and their are a million grandmother's versions. Just mix it up and hit it with flavour ...

Gluten Free Apple Crumble
Although you don't see many of the classics here at Sugar & Two
Cents, suspend your for penchant exotic and complicated desserts for this
gluten-free apple crumble.  On the weekend we had a lot of old, wrinkly and rotting apples lying around. I don't like...

Tofu Pad Thai
As a good and honourable citizen of the world is my duty to warn you
that this dish stinks. Treat the cooking of Pad Thai as you would a
paint job - wear clothes you don't mind ruining, and make sure there's a
steady flow of air throughout the process. M...

Grilled Salmon with Fennel and Cannellini Mash
This impressive salmon dish with a fennel and white bean mash ticks all the boxes. Quick and easy, affordable, nutritious and suitable to most diets, but most of all, delicious, and just a bit different. Apart from the price tag, what often frustrates me ab...
