Sauce

Hello,

Yesterday my dad ask me if I could make some sauce for a pasta. I looked at ingredients we had at home and tried to make a sauce. I think it tasted very good.

The ingredients:

300 gram minced meat
1 canned peeled tomatoesDSC00326
2 large onions
1 garlic clove
Basil
Parsley
Oregano
Chive
Butter

Cut the onions and garlic into little pieces. Heat up a frying pan. Let the butter melt into the frying pan. Season the minced meat with salt and pepper. Make little pieces of the meat. Put the minced meat into the frying pan and cook it until all the meat is brown (not rare). Meanwhile cut the basil, parsley, oregano and chive.

Add the cut onions and garlic to the cooked meat. Cook that with the meat for a little bit.

Add the peeled tomatoes to the meat, onions and garlic. Add the basil, parsley, oregano and chive while stirring it around. Keep tasting and adding until you find the right flavour for you.

My family really liked the sauce. It is very simple sauce but you know what they say “Less is more.”

Noodles

Hello,

Yesterday I made noodles for my family. Noodles are made from dough that is rolled flat, stretched or extruded and then cut into various shapes. I am not able to make noodles myself so I used premade ones from the grocery store.

The ingredients:

Premade noodles
Chicken stock cubes (1 for 500 ml  )
2 red chilli
5 spring onions
1 leek
1 ginger
2 egg
diced ham
Salt
Olive
oil

Fill a pan up to half with water. When it is boiling put the stock cubes into the water. Stir a few times. Add the noodle. Boil them for 12 minutes. Stir a few times during boiling.

Cut the spring onions, red chillies and the leek. Make sure that they are cut in very small pieces.

Crack your eggs into a bowl. Stir them until it is yellow. Add a little bit of salt. Heat up a saucepan. Put oil in the saucepan. Pour the stirred egg into the saucepan. Stir it around. You are now making scrambled eggs. When they done, put them in bowl on the side.

Heat up a frying pan and put the oil in the pan. Add the cut spring onions, red chillies and leek. Season them with salt and ginger.

Around then the noodles will be cooked. Pour them out of the pan into a strainer and let them dry. Try to save the stock.

Wait ’till the noodles are dried. Put the noodles, scrambled egg and dices ham into the frying pan. Stir them around. If you want a stronger flavour you can add some of the stock. Keep going ’till you like the taste.

In the end it looks something like this:

I used a red chilli and an orange chilli. I like a bit of spicy food. So I found the orange chilli not so spicy. My family doesn’t like spicy food at all. So they found the orange chilli really spicy. Be careful with the chillies and taste them first.

I am looking for recipes to cook so if you have suggestions please leave a comment or send me a tweet @Kim_Cooking

Meatballs

Hello,

I wanted to start with something simple: The meatball. Every country has its own version of the meatball. It is the dish that most people know. It is made all over the world.  The one I made is a basic one.

Ingredients:

Minces Meat
Onion
Parsley
Breadcrumbs
Egg

SaltOnions: The pieces need to be a bit smaller if that is possible.
Pepper

Cut the Onions and the Parsley into little pieces.

Put the Minces Meat into a bowl and season the meat with the salt and pepper (or if you want to can also use other spices).

You can choose the kind of meat you want to use. I just used beef. You don’t have to use just one kind of meat. You can for example mix pork and beef together.

Add the bread crumples, egg, onion and parsley to the meat and mix it all together. You add the bread crumples and the egg so that the meatballs with stay together and won’t fall apart. My mixture looked like this before I made balls of it:2015-04-29_09.05.46

You can use butter or oil to bake your meatballs in. It takes 25 to 30 minutes before they are ready. Be careful and don’t put them on a too high heat because then the chance that they get dry is very big then.

These meatballs were OK. Does someone have an ideas to make better meatballs? Leave a comment below please.

Starting a blog

Hello people,

I have three months off from school. I have finished with school. I wanted to do something in those three months.

At first I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I could take a job and work every day of the week but I found that a bit boring and normal. Maybe I will find a job anyways but I want to do something else as well. I have always wanted to learn how to cook and to keep track of everything that I have cooked I have started this blog.

So I am going to post every recipe that I made on here. That is the plan for now. Maybe I will think of other food related things to blog about.

I don’t know if anyone will read this but if you do. Thank you for reading.

Kim
