    Adapted from a recipe I found in the August/September 2008 issue of 'dish'. To make this recipe vegetarian, simply use vegetable stock in place of chicken stock. If you don't have a recipe for vegetable stock and would like to make some which basically uses all your vegetable peelings, you might like to try my Vegetable Stock #135453.

    Recipe #330028

    Delicious pastries: great to serve to family and for dinner parties. Adapted from a recipe I found in a recent issue of 'New Idea'.

    Recipe #330021

    My adaptation of another of Huey's fabulous recipes. His salads he always categorises as sexy salads. He recommends this dish as an entrée or light lunch for four. It could, of course, also be served as a side dish. Serve it warm or at room temperature, whichever you prefer. Huey (Iain Hewitson) is a larger than life Melbourne restaurateur and chef who also features on his own extremely popular TV show. I have posted several of his recipes on Zaar.

    Recipe #329072

    I found these recipes in the April 2008 issue of the magazine 'Australian Good Taste'. Apparently, this coffee-flavoured cocktail was first mixed at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels in 1949. Cola Black Russian and White Russian with Vodka and Cream are obviously direct descendants of Black Russian! How much cola you use in Cola Black Russian and how much cream you use in White Russian with Vodka and Cream will obviously depend both on the size of your glass and the portions that best suit your taste preferences! There is an inconsistency in the spelling of "'Kahlúa" in this recipe because Zaar would not accept this spelling in the list of ingredients. Intriguing! Not to worry: just relax and enjoy your choice of Black Russian, Cola Black Russian or White Russian With Vodka and Cream.

    Recipe #329040

    Delicious individual cheesecakes made in a muffin pan. I found this recipe in the April 2008 issue of the Australian 'Good Taste' magazine. This recipe can be made ahead to the end of step 4 up to a day ahead. If you've not used Greek yoghurt before, DO try it: it's amazingly, creamily delicious! And when it comes to yoghurt, I just cannot eat low-fat or reduced fat varieties. There's just NO comparison between their watery flavourlessness and Greek yoghurt. The stated cooking time of 20 minutes does not include the cooling and 11/2 hours chilling time.

    Recipe #328853

    Adapted from a recipe I found in the September-November 2008 issue of the Australian/Italian magazine 'italianicious: essence of Italy' magazine. I've not tried this recipe yet: I just discovered this magazine for the first time today. I've posted the recipe here for safe-keeping, so that I remember to try it. Sounds delicious! When making this, I'll be using my Vegetable Stock #135453.

    Recipe #328777

    Recipe #328694

    A delicious sandwich made with your choice of bread, slices of brie, Maggie Beer's scrumptious Spiced Pear Paste and baby spinach leaves. The first time I made this I used Maggie Beer's equally delicious Apple and Rosemary Paste. On that occasion, I used sour dough bread, but I've also made this sandwich with ciabatta. I've made it as a take-to-work sandwich, which has meant that by the time I have eaten it, the brie has been wonderfully melted - making the use of margarine or butter totally unnecessary. Since making this sandwich the first time - a serendipitous creation: it was simply what I had on hand - I've added chopped walnuts as I love the textural variety that they bring to the sandwich. This sandwich would, I believe, also be delicious pan-fried, though I've not yet tried it that way. Maggie Beer is an Australian chef and writer and she produces many, many food products and drinks. Her products are available online: For Australian Zaar members, her Spiced Pear Paste should be readily available from any good delicatessen, greengrocer's or supermarket. Her pastes might seem expensive but a little bit goes a long way when it comes to the flavour they bring to a sandwich. And I haven't yet even begun to explore where else I might use them. Zaar would not allow me to use Maggie Beer's Spiced Pear Paste as an ingredient, so in the ingredients I have listed slices of pear and I have suggested some spices that could be added if you are using slices of pear. Add one or more of these, according to your taste preferences.

    Recipe #328359

    A quick to prepare rice dish, adapted from a recipe on one the cards in international culinary celebrity Kurma Dasa's 52 card set 'Quick Vegetarian recipes you can prepare in a hurry'. It is important to use pans with tight-fitting lids for this recipe. If you are not overly fond of peas or spinach, substitute them with a vegetable you prefer. But the green of the vegetables in this dish does contrast most attractively with the yellowish rice and the cashews.

    Recipe #328002

    A quick and easy to make recipe, adapted from a recipe by international culinary celebrity Kurma Dasa from one of the cards in the 52 card set 'Quick Vegetarian recipes you can prepare in a hurry'. Kurma Dasa believes that "Life in the fast lane shouldn't mean life in the fast food lane'. The estimated times below for preparation and cooking do not include the one hour needed for soaking the split mung beans. On reading White Rose Child's review, I checked the source for this recipe and Kurma Dasa definitely specified 3 tablespoons of cumin. Several of the ingredients in this recipe are way too hot for my taste preferences. I often use cumin in recipes but nothing like 3 teaspoons let alone 3 tablespoons. I suggest that you use cumin - and any other ingredients - to suit your taste preferences.

    Recipe #327998

    A vegetable curry which is far too spicy for me but which I believe many would enjoy. It's certainly full of nutrition. I found this recipe in a March 2005 issue of the magazine 'Fresh'. I've posted it here exactly as I found it. Although I have cooked such dishes, as a non-eater, I have no feel for them so am ill-equipped to modify them in any way, but I do hope that anyone trying this recipe will make it their own by adjusting it to meet their own taste preferences. And for a spot of culinary trivia: among the spices in this recipe is turmeric which - according to the notes accompanying the recipe - "has been called 'poor man's saffron' as it imparts a yellow colour at a fraction of the cost"!

    Recipe #327981

    Well everything else it seems has its muffin pan version on Zaar: from meatloaf to pizza to apple pie and even twice-baked potatoes, but I couldn't find any quiches. I have posted here my adapted version of a recipe for Sweet Potato and Leek Quiches made in muffin pans that I found in a March 2005 issue of 'Fresh'. The recipe specifies chopping the sweet potato into chunks 2.5 cm (approximately one inch). Zaar wouldn't allow me to specify the size of the chunks in the list of ingredients. To make these quiches as appetizers, you could also use smaller recessed muffin pans, although that could be quite fiddly. For variation and added flavour, add chopped bacon pieces. And if you want to add some heat, add whatever is your favourite spice.

    Recipe #327761

    A decadent delight I found in a March 2005 issue of 'Fresh' magazine. This was a reader's recipe from Sharon Johnston, Mount Crosby, Queensland (Australia). There is a photograph on the same page as the recipe, and Sharon looks about 10 years old. The page bore the heading 'A slice of heaven.' I considered adding nuts to the recipe, but decided to leave it exactly as it was. Nuts would be the obvious addition here, possibly instead of the coconut. Or perhaps 1/2 cup of coconut and 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts. Hope you enjoy Sharon's slices of heaven!

    Recipe #327699

    Quick to prepare, elegant and delicious tarts, best made when grapes are at their peak! And these can be whipped up at fairly short notice as long as you have the ingredients on hand. This tart can be eaten warm or at room temperature. I have adapted this recipe from one I found in a March 2005 issue of Woolworth's 'Fresh' magazine. Serve with icecream, cream or Greek yoghurt. Since American recipes generally have more sugar than Australian recipes, American chefs may want to increase the sugar in this recipe.

    Recipe #327697

    Tomatoes stuffed then baked in the oven. Choose the most flavoursome tomatoes you can lay your hands on and, particularly if making this recipe for guests, for a more attractive presentation, choose tomatoes with stalks, and leave the stalk attached to each tomato. Delicious with your favourite salad. We've enjoyed this dish with a potato salad and salad greens. Adapted from a recipe in a March 2005 issue of the Woolworth's 'Fresh' magazine. You can use other variations of rice if you prefer or a mixed rice. Because tomato sizes are so variable, you may end up with slightly more filling than will fit into the tomato shells, in which case you may score a solo meatball which could be cooked with the stuffed tomatoes (perhaps covered with a small piece of foil). Or do what Sheynath did (see her review) and use the stuffing to stuff a pepper.

    Recipe #327694

    I found this recipe in the "Weekend with Nino Zoccali" section of the October 2008 issue of 'Australian Good Food' where it is recommended as the ideal finale to an Italian feast and "also quite healthy as the pears are high in fibre and hazelnuts are good for you too - a drizzle of natural honey to finish and la vita e bella".

    Recipe #327636

    Ready to try a new pesto recipe? Looking for a culinary adventure? This quick to prepare and easy recipe is from the uktv FOOD website. I ran into difficulties in posting it recipe, because of the 2 "handfuls" listed in the ingredients as the required number of peanuts! I have converted this to 1/2 cup, so if you prefer to add "2 handfuls", go for it!. Then - in view of the options provided - I puzzled over what cuisine to list it under. The closest I could get was to classify it as Iranian/Persian, an approximation at best! So if precision is essential to you, this recipe is probably NOT for you, but if you're prepared to try something new, you might like to try it!

    Recipe #327601

    A traditional Moroccan tagine which I found in the October 2008 'Australian Good Food' magazine which assures you that this recipe will take you on a romantic escape to Marrakech "without aid of a flying carpet". This recipe is for two, but the quantity could easily be increased. Essentially the only change I made to this recipe was to suggest sneaking in some wine, which is what I'll certainly do when I make it. If you cannot find Turkish bread, use pita bread or any crusty bread suitable for mopping up the juices. This recipe can be prepared ahead.

    Recipe #327599

    A quick to prepare Asian-influenced salad which could be served as a main course or a side dish, from 'tossed: 200 fast, fresh and fabulous salads'. If any of your mushrooms are particularly large, quarter them or chop them to an appropriate size. Ideal for making on a busy week-night with a takeaway - or take out - roasted chicken. BTW, 7 oz = 200g; 14 oz = 400g. The lime and soy dressing could be made in advance.

    Recipe #326636

    A mixture of tuna and chick peas formed into oval-shaped sausages or balls. Adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Meals website. You could skip the yoghurt and fresh mint on the ingredient list and serve the Tuna Kofta with my Apple Mint Yoghurt Salsa Recipe #320813.
