Bella Masters Phyllo


Tell me this isn't living: I sat and sewed for an hour this afternoon while Bella put together an amazing dish for dinner. Curried zucchini and chickpeas (with spices from scratch!) turned into a phyllo crust.

The girl can cook anything, and she sings while she does it!

Forgot to add, the recipe is from Nigella's How to Be a Domestic Goddess--look for it there if you're interested!

That IS living. And Bella can come sing and cook here any day. My best friend is an amazing, gifted, trained soprano, and I love having her visit me--she sings all the time, and it makes the house so happy.

Lucky you!

Wow!

Delish! Way to go, Miss Bella!

WHATEVER!!!

Really- I dropped my jaw when I saw this.

BELLA YOU ARE SO COOL!

I love reading about Bella. I hope one of my daughters might grow into a singing and cooking teenage girl one day, too.
For now, we do the singing and cooking together, which is fun, too. :-)

Bella, you are a domestic goddess already. I can offer Miss Bella bed and board in Australia any time she wants to cook and sing in my kitchen. :) I must look up that recipe as tiny baby zucchinis are in season now.

Oh Bella, Bella! You are a talented girl, cooking, singing, the list goes on. Your dinner looks amazingly delicious, what a blessing you are to your mum (and family!) Could I borrow you ...maybe you could teach me how to master phyllo...as it is one on my list of failures.

Truly inspiring!

Do you rent her by the meal?

Denise said...

I have all the ingredients for the same dish waiting to be made at my house...I love Nigella's cookbooks!

Oh, boy - does that look good!

Laura said...

I love the very wording!

Such elevation of status for the lowly chick pea...
to be stirred amongst savory heaven and then folded into phyllo glory!

This, I must try.

Wow. That makes me verklempt. How is her singing coming along?

Sarah Jane said...

Oh my goodness, phyllo dough is something I've found soooooo difficult to work with, never mind making from scratch! I stand in awe of your daughter!

Mrs. FSG said...

You go girl! Oh, and I was wondering aobut the recipe. She uses the Nigella cookbooks alot it seems. Awesome!

Anna,
I just have to rejoice with you at the wonderful ways your daughter has been able to spend her days...really learning and loving and preparing to make a beautiful home herself. It is such a luxury and a priviledge to be home with children...thank you for spurring me on. Mary Brooke in Atlanta

How wonderful!!! Thank you for sharing Bella's yummy creation. I'm on my way to our library to check out a copy of that book! Thanks for the inspiration! Happy weekend to all your family. :>

I'd love to put Bella and my teen daughter together for a day. I imagine we would all eat well . . . ;-) My daughter loves to bake; not so much the singing, but she'd help if Bella was singing. ;-)

When the tasks and stresses of raising very little ones starts getting to me and I start to feel overwhelmed, I think about the days in the future when they'll be old enough to do things such as what your Bella does. At that point, a part of me smilingly looks forward to it and another part wants to cry at the thought of my sweet babies growing up.

That is living, for sure. I recently saw Ina from Barefoot Contessa do a phyllo dough recipe and was thinking of trying it. Thanks for the reminder. Very nice Bella! It's beautiful just to look at. I can only imagine how yummy it must be.
