This is SO much nicer than store bought cordial and with not too much effort. Everybody I know loves it when I make my own cordial. For those that have never tried home made, use the cordial sparingly as it seems strong than store bought. May be start with 1/2 inch in your glass and adjust according to your taste. I have also made this with other citrus fruits. You could use 3 oranges & 3 lemons or just use limes. Delish!
This is my husband's favourite chocolate cake. It's a quick and easy one bowl mix. No electric mixer needed. The recipe originally came to me back in the late 1980's via the fax machine when I was working a little country newspaper. It was promotional material by White Wings. Best thing that ever came through on that fax machine. ;o)
These rich little apricots balls are more-ish. I challenge you to eat just one. They're very nice in summer when frozen as well.
(The serving size is a guess as I haven't made this in several years and it also depends on how big you make the balls. I'll ammend this next time I make them)
This has been my husband's favourite dessert since he was a small child. Use the jam of your choice. We love plum jam and I tend to double the quantity of jam. The texture is similar to a warm cake. Delicious with ice-cream and/or cream.
Found this online a couple of years ago and it is probably my most made tofu recipe. Easy to prepare and delicious. Once you've made this, you can adjust individual ingredients to your liking. I sometimes add just a little more peanut butter.
(Preparation time includes marinading time)
This is a recipe that my mother-in-law baked countless times. A favourite of the shearer's she cooked for during shearing season. She's been asked for this recipe many, many times. Hers always tasted spicier than mine and I suspect she used a heaped teaspoon of spice. I also noticed that she never owned a set of measuring cups or spoons. Just used a teacup and cutlery from her to drawer to measure. Ahhh, the simple old days and delightful foods.
I got the recipe from a good friend's Maltese mother when I was first married back in 1981. We would visit and her mother almost always had a batch of this very moist, dense, rich cake that was almost pudding like in consistency. She cut it into small squares to serve but I often had several as I find it irresistible.
Another recipe from my Mother-in-law. This is a lovely old fashioned meat paste to spread on sandwiches. My husband and his oldest 2 sons absolutely loved this in days gone by. The recipe does not state what type of steak to use. I have made this several times with a cheaper cut and it just lovely. (Not sure of quantity this makes as I haven't made it for a long time. Also depends on the size jars you use. I will amend this when I make it again and can state how much it makes) Also note: Recipezaar wants to change the ingredient of "Anchovy sauce" to anchovies, sauce. This is actually a sauce that you can buy here in Australia.
