The original of this comes from the back of a packet of Chang’s original fried noodles. I make the same dressing, but like a few extra salad ingredients. Original dressing contains olive oil-I find it too heavy and prefer to use canola. Make the dressing ahead of time to allow it to cool. Only add the noodles THE MOMENT you are about to eat or pass them around seperately if there is a chance of left-overs.
We are currently travelling around Australia, following the crab season it seems. One of our favourite ways to eat all these crabs we catch is in crab cakes. Russell has almost perfected them for our tastes-but I tell him he'll just need to practice a bit more ;-)
My mother made a great trifle, my sister made her additions, I made mine, this is it.
This may not be the "real" way to make trifle, but it's been our family way for as long as I can remember. This is super quick to assemble if you don't make the custard yourself (sorry mum).
I got this from an Indian cookbook, but we have simplified it over the years so it could be made reasonably quickly for our Friday curry night after work.
Our boys loved this even before they thought they liked curry! This is the most cooked recipe from the cookbook.
This is pretty much how lasagna gets made in Australia, usually no cottage cheese or ricotta. I have been making it this way for over 30 years, but can't find a similar recipe on here yet. I find it easier to make the beef sauce the day before, and reheat it a little, but I like to use the cheese sauce hot and freshly made. This mix fills a tray 12x8x3 for me, and I find it easier to cut through the top layer with kitchen scissors before taking to it with a knife to cut into serving portions.
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.
