My mother and her sisters are known for their scrumptious desserts! Our family reunions always have one long table reserved just for the "Harville Girls" desserts! This is a hit for hot summer days, baby showers, kids and even the guys LOVE it! So easy to make.
Crunchy on the outside and marshmallow on the inside. A real NZ icon. I have been making this recipe for 35 years. A real family recipe to share. We have this at all our family gatherings especially Christmas Dinner. (It's summer here then!) The secret to this Pavlova is the time taken to mix in the sugar. Don't hurry!
The basis for this recipe is a recipe in the July 2005 issue of Sunset Magazine. I've modified the dressing to use bottled dressing to make it even simpler. Great for picnics and potlucks. ***Great presentation when layered unmixed in a large glass bowl.*** Can be made vegetarian depending on dressing.
This refreshing fruit salad originally came from a Southern Symphony cookbook, thus the cute name. I can't remember which symphony now as it has been a while. I have made it from memory now for years. I get requests to bring it to potlucks all the time....and it makes a lot, so cut the recipe in half if it's for home use! Note, you can add a bit more than 1/2 of the lemonade concentrate if you prefer more marinade.
My sister-in-law brought this to our beach house this summer, where we had a tapenade taste-off. This was the winner. I had this on seafood, with chips, with veggies, on bruschetta, and even used it as a sandwich spread!
This is fresh and crunchy. Almost all the ingredients come straight from the garden. A great use for those surplus cucumbers and tomatoes-you can only make so many pickles, right?! Cook time is chill time.
I've got this recipe of my sister-in-law. I just love the combination of pasta, spinach cheese and tomatoes. Served with crusty bread and a fresh salad (plus a few bottles of red wine), it's perfect if you have a few friends round for dinner and don't want anything too formal!
These are good for an everyday supper since they're so easily prepared, yet look no further of you want something elegant enough to present at a dinner party. This dish is nice served on a bed of pasta topped with Tomato Sauce.
