    I know a lot of people don't like fruitcake, but I love it and can't understand what's not to love;-). This is a nice simple one from my high school cookbook. I've made a couple of changes to the original recipe over the years.

    Recipe #101278

    The way my mum made it, the way I make it. Mum used to cook her veggies (potatoes, carrots, parsnips, tiny onions) in the water, putting them in about 45 minutes before the meat was cooked. I find them over salty done this way. Reserve a half a cup of strained cooking liquid to make my Mustard Sauce for Corned Beef recipe #21617.Leftovers make good sandwiches with relish or chutney.

    Recipe #94980

    A really popular Aussie snack which turns up at parties, picnics and for lunches. I used to make 8 dozen of these 5 days a week for about 2 years! Season these to taste-Australian sausage mince is quite salty, so I don't put too much.

    Recipe #95246

    Russell loves stuffing mushrooms, and this is one of his favourites.

    Recipe #95385

    My son is coming for dinner tonight, although he's a fussy eater, this is one of his favourites, so he's chosen it. I sometimes add a sliced chilli to this too.

    Recipe #81286

    I've made this a couple of times, to rave reviews from my family. It's really easy to make, it's tasty and hearty, and makes the shrimp go a long way.

    Recipe #78024

    This is a family favourite and one we eat often in the summer when the barbecue is going. Prep time doesn't include marinating time.

    Recipe #70243

    This is a really old fashioned dish my mum used to make. Tomoko has come to live with us, and tonight she made this for her first cooking lesson. Now I'll post it here then print it out for her.

    Recipe #67884

    This is my mum's recipe, which I made just recently. My son's girlfriend wanted the recipe, so I figure this is the easiest way to give it to her! If you like hearty old-fashioned soup, this is a good stick-to-your-ribs one! Cook time includes making the stock, then next day, the soup, but not the sitting overnight!

    Recipe #68951

    We have a Japanese girl, Tomoko, living with us, and tonight she and I cooked a Japanese dinner for us and her friends. She phoned her mum,Toshiko, in Japan for this, as it's her favourite recipe, and I wanted to share it here. It's simple and so good, and Tomoko, who is only 16, did such a good job of cooking this, then translating the recipe to English for me. *The liquid will thicken to a glaze if you are patient. It just takes a bit of time. If you feel your chicken is cooked (and going to overcook) remove it before going on to reduce the liquid. Same thing, if you must use breast meat, remove it (so it doesn't dry out) and continue reducing the liquid . If you do it this way rather than thickening with cornstarch you will get a richer glaze and not need to add stock or broth instead of the water. It just takes patience. AND NOTE: A glaze is sticky and coats the meat, this is NOT a sauce.

    Recipe #68955

    This is posted for a request. It comes from a very old copy of a PWMU (Presbyterian Women's Missionary Union) cookbook. Crumbles are a favourite winter dessert for my family, and one I actually make, as they are so simple.

    Recipe #60698

    I've been making this since my boys could eat solids! and it's still a favourite. Add carrot, celary, bell pepper if you wish, or tinned tomatoes in place of all or some of the soup. I really just make it with what I have or need to use. I also love the custard on mashed potatoes or pumpkin baked in the oven.

    Recipe #66859

    This is the sauce I've been making for years. It doesn't make a huge quantity, but is easily doubled etc. I think it needs to be simmered for a long time to develop the flavour. I would serve this over any pasta or spaghetti shapes I have on hand and I also use this in my lasagnas. Feel free to add sautéed mushrooms, celery or a little grated carrot if you wish. I do sometimes, but find we like this simple recipe the best.

    Recipe #66861

    This is posted by request, and comes from the Aus Women's Weekly Chinese Cooking Class Cookbook. It's a simple recipe I make quite often. Prep time doesn't include marinating time.

    Recipe #55242

    This "recipe" comes from a 40 year old cook book I inherited when I met Russell! "Entertaining with Kerr". He was a pompus TV cook in Australia, and this is the only thing I've ever cooked out of the book. It's also the ONLY way I enjoy my rice (and we eat a lot of that!)

    Recipe #53546

    This is a really old family favourite that my mum often made. Now I make it! It's OK with tinned pie apples (but home cooked are best), it's good over stewed apricots, peaches, nectarines, quinces, and it's nice to mix stewed rhubarb in with the apple when it's available.

    Recipe #46732

    This is very popular in Japan, and very popular with my children. It's also a favorite dish in the restaurant where I work. The Japanese are quite happy to eat this at room temperature too. Prep time includes marinating time.

    Recipe #41381

    One of my most favourite Japanese side dishes made with one of my favourite vegetables. This is eaten at room temperature, and is especially tasty (I think). I usually make extra, as youngest son and I love the left-overs.

    Recipe #41394

    We love Christmas pudding. I make mine in October, and give many away as gifts. I make several sizes, and try to keep about 3 for us-one for Christmas, another for New Year, and the last for around Easter. I find it very satisfying to make these, though I can hardly wait to eat the first one! This recipe is a combination of 2 favourites and works well. If you don't want to use the stout and brandy, use orange juice as one of the recipes suggested-I think the stout and brandy give the recipe depth of flavour.
