It's time again for
Secret Recipe Club (Secret Recipe Club) reveal! My secret blog assignment this month was Chit Chat Chomp, an amazing blog written by Leigh who lives in Melbourne, Australia. Her blog is full of amazing recipes and gorgeous photos of all of them. Leigh calls herself an amateur photographer, but they look pretty professional to me! I wanted to try everything on her blog. Once again I started making a list:
- Chili Chicken with Hummus
- Asparagus Tart
- Cranberry and Chocolate Biscuits - because, of course, I'm drawn to anything cranberry
- Chunky Apple Cinnamon Muffins w/ Crumb Topping - apples in the topping!
- Dark Chocolate and Orange Muffins
Of course, since Leigh is a child of English parents who lives in Australia, I needed to convert some of the measurements. How much is 160g flour? I admit, I've let something like that keep me from trying some of the recipes I've found online, but this time I looked up some recipe conversions. (Well, that was simple!)
The chicken and corn mixture was soupier than I was expecting when I put it in the baking dish, and the potatoes were quite thick on top. Then, the oven worked its magic, and they baked together into this perfectly creamy delicious dish that my husband and I both loved.
When I decided to make this particular recipe, I had to look up Cottage Pie, too. Leigh says this is not the sort of cottage pie her mum would make, which would be "an Irish or British meat pie cooked with beef mince and has a crust made from mashed potato" - and certainly not chicken. Or corn. Well, this one has both, and I added some mushrooms and spinach too, just because, and it is yummy. Definitely comfort food.
