I first tried this years ago when a friend passed on the recipe. I whipped the ingredients together until thick and loved the result but later found my friend just stirred hers so her dip was quite liquidy. I actually prefer it whipped but either way guests enjoy it. I have also used Godiva or Mozart Liqueur (chocolate) depending on what I have available. I made this yesterday with Mozart Liqueur for JanS - she requested I submit the recipe.
I promise this is one of the nicest ways to enjoy quality tomatoes and basil. Like I say, don't make this if you can't get hold of home-grown or vine-ripened tomatoes. It's not worth doing. And don't use your tomatoes from the fridge.
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.
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've been making this for years without a recipe, so when dale! asked me for the recipe, I had to stop and think. I also use the same mix (less lemon juice) for a pineapple cheesecake. You can add sugar, but I love the tart lemon flavour. If you like your base right up the side of the cheesecake, double the base mixture-I like more cake, less crumbs!
A warm mushroom salad, a warm late winter's eve.. I think perhaps I can make it 'till spring! I enjoyed it with purely the mushrooms and juices, but you may also prefer the traditional salad toppers. Courtesy DailyRecipe email service.
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 DIL Leah made this Bill Granger salad for us last night. The original calls for a handful of small olives, Leah used a 375g jar of kalmata olives which was perfect. She cut the carrots into long thin matchsticks (julienne).
This is a REALLY popular Aussie dessert-one that you often find at potlucks. It's simple and yummy-what more could you ask for!
Editing to add the photo is of a double mixture. Additional photos show the steps involved making this ring.
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!)
