Cafe-Style Bircher Muesli

IMG_1259I recently spent a week travelling around Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road. If you haven’t visited this part of the world yet, it is definitely a region to add to your bucket list! While holidaying, we were eating out for most meals. On almost every breakfast menu we came across, we spotted the ever-faithful Bircher Muesli. I loved seeing the different flavour combinations added, and it inspired me to create a simple, cafe-style Bircher to quickly whip up at home. Keep reading for one of the easiest, and most delicious, Birchers you’ll find (pictured).

What’s for dinner? An easy way to use up items in the fridge.

Thursday night came around and there were only a few days left before I went on holiday. Packing was almost done, Christmas gift shopping was completed, but my fridge was full of odd ingredients after trying to use up most items before I went away. What do you make for dinner using a handful of odd ingredients? To be specific, these ingredients included half a leftover BBQ chicken, part of a block of parmesan cheese, some veggies and an open bottle of white wine. My go-to in these situations is risotto. Add some frozen peas from the freezer and Arborio rice and you have yourself a dinner! There are so many variations you can make with risotto, and this easy base recipe is excellent – just add your own ingredients. These risottos are always a winner in my household, have a read of the “Hints & Tips” section below the recipe for some other combinations.  Happy Baking! L x
