    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

    Use only the best quality ingredients and you'll have the most delicious and refreshing dessert imaginable. And it takes only moments to make! Affogato is a typically Italian way to enjoy ice cream — it's literally 'drowned' in espresso or another liquid topping. This version of Affogato Mocha appeared in the May 2005 issue of Bon Appétit

    Recipe #124855

    A fabulously healthy juice drink from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. Commenting on aloe vera, she says that it "has been described as a natural healer because it contains many essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes" and she suggests giving youself "a dose whenever you feel low". From the instructions, this is clearly intended to be made using a juicer, but you could use a blender. You would then get the whole of the cucumber and apple, not just the juice. If doing this, obviously remove the apple core!

    Recipe #146074

    Being an excellent source of protein, the nuts and seeds in this shake make it a nourishing breakfast that will help you re-charge so that you are ready to meet the demands of the day ahead. Soaking the nuts and seeds overnight increases their digestibility and therefore the healthfulness of this shake. Just drain off the water the nuts have soaked in overnight before making your shake with clean water and the other ingredients. This shake will obviously be more nutritious if you use organic nuts, seeds and fruits. Adapted from a recipe on Dr Joseph Mercola’s website, together advice from my naturopath.

    Recipe #118989

    I just love the sound of the blend of garlic, cumin and lime with the cilantro in this Cilantro Cream Sauce recipe. When I came across it on the Allrecipes website and read some of the hundred or so rave reviews that had been written, I checked the Zaar recipes, which all sounded quite different again from this one and, I thought, well there are probably some other Zaar members who would also like to try this recipe. Being timid around spicy flavours, I’ll be leaving those out – whereas some chefs will I know be increasing their heat – but the rest of the flavour combinations sound really tempting. I was also struck by the versatility offered by this recipe, something that is also true of the other Zaar recipes for Cilantro Sauce, some of which I’ve saved and will also be trying. I particularly liked the sound of Merlot’s Hazelnut & Cilantro Pasta Sauce #31361. Amy’s Cilantro Cream Sauce can be used as a dip, as a sauce for grilled fish, chicken or steamed vegetables, as a salad dressing, folded through mashed potatoes or as a pasta sauce. Since I haven’t yet made this, I’ve posted it exactly as I found it on the Allrecipes website. Thank you, Amy. Some reviewers had made it with low fat cheese and cream with excellent results, some added chopped green onions and some used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I’ll be looking for an alternative to the tomatillo salsa. Any suggestions are most welcome. I’ve estimated the preparation time to be 5-10 minutes.

    Recipe #120856

    Greek chef and restaurateur Theodore Kyriakou (widely considered to be the finest Greek chef in Britain) says of this recipe: "This dish is best made with the strongly flavoured salted anchovy fillets (be sure to rinse them well), but the anchovies from tins or jars will do as well. You can either use a food processor or pound everything with a pestle and mortar. This paste will keep for several weeks in the fridge and is served on biscuits or bread." This recipe is from his book ‘real greek food’, which he co-authored with food writer Charles Campion. It's obviously a recipe for those who love anchovies! I'm posting it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #142233

    A great detoxing drink adapted from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. She warns "watch out for the beetroot moustache"!

    Recipe #146939

    Adapted from a recipe I found on the UKTV FOOD website. This is a great lunch box alternative to sandwiches, and one that children could easily make for themselves. Except perhaps mixing the yoghurt with the cinnamon and honey. Or you could enjoy this as light meal or as a side-salad. I'd suggest Granny Smiths or Fuji apples. For some reason, Zaar wouldn't allow me to include this information in the ingredients. I left intact - from the original recipe - the virtuous low fat natural yogurt alternative but if you’re more interested in flavour than in being totally virtuous, especially if you've never tried it, use divinely creamy Greek yoghurt and don't forget the cinnamon and honey! Anyway, if you were totally virtuous, you undoubtedly wouldn’t be eating cheese at all!

    Recipe #321213

    Avocado Vinaigrette is a traditional Australian recipe for an entrée, which acknowledges that so scrumptious is the avocado that it is in little need of embellishment. For many Australians, eating this dish may well have been their introduction to avocados. This recipe is from the Australian publication by Reader's Digest of a book jam-packed with traditional Australian recipes: 'Family Recipe Scrapbook: tried and trusted recipes for today's cooks'. I bought the book in preparation for the 2005 Zaar World Tour, so I could track down familiar recipes I've eaten often and others I know by name but have either never eaten or have not eaten not at all recently, as well as others I have never made.

    Recipe #138310

    A super-simple, super-healthy and quick appetiser or light lunch dish. Avocados really are one of those super foods: they lower cholesterol, contain cancer-fighting anti-oxidants and protect the eyes against eye diseases that can lead to blindness. This simple recipe comes from the September 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Delicious'. Thank you, DeeCooks, for drawing my attention to an omission in the instructions: now corrected!

    Recipe #135239

    A refreshing tropical smoothie ideal for breakfast on the run (put it in an insulated lidded container and take it with you!) or for a leisurely brunch or an anytime snack! I often make this and take it to work in 2 Tupperware containers: one for breakfast, the other as a snack during the day.

    Recipe #146989

    A delicious low-fat smoothie, sweetened naturally with honey, with extra nutrition from wheat germ and sunflower seeds, and extra flavour from cinnamon. A great morning-pick-me-up! I often take some to work in a Tupperware container with a firm lid, and enjoy it as a mid-morning snack.

    Recipe #146467

    In the September 2009 Australian magazine 'super food ideas', where it features as a Father's Day BBQ Spice Rub, this recipe is described as "perfect for Dad to sprinkle over beef rump steak or other favourite BBQ meats before cooking." I'd hope that any dads worth spoiling won't be expected to BBQ for all and sundry on Father's Day but will be spoilt rotten! But for anyone BBQing at any time, this sounds yummy so I'm posting it here for safe-keeping. Personally, I'll be leaving out the dried chilli flakes. But do feel free to crank up the heat if that's your preference! My only change was to add the black pepper, but I'm in two minds about this as it's perhaps better to add this at the time.

    Recipe #386568

    A scrumptious, low fat, low GI smoothie which I found in the October 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Delicious' and have adapted. Because it's different from other smoothies I've made, I have posted it here for safekeeping - and for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #139955

    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 healthy and delicious juice - a great way to start the day! - from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. As flip says of this juice "This has a pretty orange colour, a delicate floral scent and a great texture".

    Recipe #145669

    Chickpeas processed with roasted nuts, lemon juice and fresh chopped coriander is yet another variation on a hummus dip. Like most people I just love hummus - in any form! So I really love trying any variation I come across. This one, I can promise, is quite different from others: for me it certainly passes the scrumptiousness test! Like other dips, it can obviously also be used as a spread on sandwiches. I cannot remember now just where I got this recipe from, but from the way I had it filed in Word, it was obviously from a website, possibly the Edgell website, as it specified that Edgell Chick Peas be used.

    Recipe #117139

    This recipe for an oh-so-decadently-delicious Irish-Greek-chocolate-and-cream drink was part of an article on ouzo in the October 2005 issue of cooking magazine 'Australian Good Taste'. The article was called 'Greece Lightning' and begins: "A potent Greek spirit that has the ability to turn cloudy, ouzo can have the same effect on you - so take care not to overindulge in our delicious drinks, dessert or dressing." A cocktail? Well the ingredients suggest that but the photograph showed Chocolate Bullets served in two tall smoothie-style glasses. This is clearly not a drink for the faint-hearted! I've listed this as serving 2, but I think it could also be served in 4 cocktail glasses. The original recipe specified "chocolate topping" as the fourth ingredient; ever with a mind of its own, Zaar converted this to "chocolate fudge topping", which would I imagine be sweeter. BTW, if you're using metric measurements, 1 cup = 250 ml. From the same magazine, I have also posted Recipe #139444 and Recipe #139460.

    Recipe #139433

    Another simple but scrumptious recipe from the October 2005 issue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine article featuring recipes using ouzo. This is a prepare ahead recipe: 5 minutes preparation, no cooking, then 2 hours chilling. The chilling time is not included in the preparation and cooking times below. The other two recipes using ouzo that I've posted from this article - for the 2005 Zaar World Tour - are Recipe #139433 and Recipe #139444.

    Recipe #139459

    Cucumber Sandwiches and Egg and Cress Sandwiches: traditional English afternoon tea fare at its absolute best! The mayonnaise in the filling means that there is no need to butter the bread. I have posted this recipe, found on an English website, for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. As a child, I absolutely loved these. Posting this really low fat recipe for the tour has reminded me of these delicious sandwich, and inspired me to make them again soon!
