Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Spring is in the air...

....a sure sign.... you are able to buy those delicious Asparagus everywhere.
I am always looking forward to that time of the year.
It means that winter has finally come to an end!

One of my favourite recipe

Asparagus Tartlets

Easy to made and yummy :-D

Ingredients for 2 servings

4 tartlet baking forms
ready made puff pastry
300g Crème fraiche or sour creme (without herbs! )
80g grated cheese
20g grated Parmesan
salt, pepper
2 eggs
12 pieces of Asparagus


Line the tartlet baking forms with the puff pastry.
Mix the Crème fraiche with the eggs, the grated cheese, season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Preheat the oven at 200°C.
Cook the Asparagus for 5 minutes in salted water.
Use the tips of the Asparagus ( I use the rest for a salad the next day ....)

Fill the baking form with the mixture, place three tips of the Asparagus on top of each.
Place the forms in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

Enjoy warm or cold!
