This is such a versatile recipe. I created it as a dip to go with raw vegetables (such as celery and carrot sticks), but found that it worked very well as a substitute for sour cream on mashed potatoes. A friend who tried it said it would also be good as a dipper for some seafood items -- just add some sweet chili sauce. Hope you try it and let me know how you used it. UPDATE: Thanks everyone for trying this for the Ready, Set, Cook contest. Based on comments, I have adjusted the amount of lemon called for in the ingredients. We love lemon and the original recipe called for 1 lemon, zest and juice. Decide for yourself, based on your taste.preferences.
Why buy ice cream topping when it is so quick and easy to make your own? I almost always have a spare 10 minutes and these ingredients on hand. This is suitable for children because bringing the mixture to the boil burns off the alcohol in the sherry.
This biscuit is easy to make and delicious to eat. It is especially good plain or when you crumble it into a soup that cries out for more (or some) cheese.
Mick was from Perth, Australia. He loved to bake. I'll post his divine shortbread recipe soon. This recipe is posted in his honour and with the approval of his daughter, Kate, who might get online someday. :-) When she does, she'll love Zaar.
This dish appeals to all ages. The slices hold their shape and taste great at room temperature -- making them perfect for make-ahead dinners, lunch boxes or potlucks. When sliced in small squares, they make great finger food, too. Created for RSC#11, and definitely a dish I'll make often in the future.
I was tired of the pumpkin and leek staring at me -- asking me to do something with them -- so I did this. A recipe card from the green grocer gave me a few hints, but I consider this to be my recipe. It's a great warmer in winter, and not too bad served at room temperature. The ingredient amounts are forgiving, so don't be afraid to be flexible. If you want a vegetarian result, omit the bacon and use vegetable stock. Cream can also be omitted. The chili flakes make the dish. *Note: If you can get tinned/canned pumpkin, you can use three 15-ounce tins to replace the chopped pumpkin. If you do this, you can add the tinned pumpkin when you add the cream.
This is from my neighbour and good friend, Ronnie, who is mother to five great kids. They all love this concoction and so do we. It serves 6-7 unless it is put in front of our former French exchange student, Emma. In that case, it serves one.
I first heard of kumquats when I moved to Australia in 1982 -- and then I discovered that my neighbours had an abundant supply. Fruit shouldn't go to waste, so I adapted this recipe from 'The Complete Book of Fruit' by Leslie Johns and Violet Stevenson. I have successfully doubled and tripled this recipe, but you will probably need to cook it longer to reach the jelling point. Time does not include overnight standing.
