Being half Italian, I do like my Italian dishes. Arancini are little rice balls with ham, cheese and peas in the middle of them. You can actually make them with meat or prawns also in the middle, but this is the way I was taught to make them. I came across this recipe in an Australian Womans Weekly and it is very similar to the way I used to make them. Great to have as a light lunch with salad or as an appetiser.
Yummy...anyone who has been to Bali, Indonesia would surely have tried their banana pancakes. Anyway this is a recipe as close as I can get to them making it, however it always tastes better over there!
I got this recipe from the Lifestyle Cooking Channel in Australia - and made it on a regular basis throughout winter. You can tweak a bit to suit your tastes. I add some vegetable stock to it when it needs thinning out a bit and I also add some basil and mixed herbs, but that is my personal taste. It is a rich soup, very filling and moreish.
Absolutely one of the best risottos I have made. It is a creamy risotto guaranteed to make you groan in delight when eating it. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did. The most time consuming part is all the stirring - but its good for the arms!!
A light, tasty and easy to put together chicken and rice dish. Something for a night when there just isnt enough time to put too much energy into the cooking. You can either use a can of cream of mushroom soup or a can of cream of chicken soup for this dish. You can make this dish without the eggs on top - i have had it both ways and they are both equally delicious and easy to digest.
I love soup - and I came across this recipe on the ninemsn website when exploring recipes under the food section. I am particularly fond of Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup but have never found a recipe that I could say - yes...more please!! This one did it for me! This recipe makes for 4 small servings - but I always tend to add more stock and water etc to make it up to 6 small servings.
I love this alternative to sausage rolls as I am not a big red meat eater. The kids will love them also. With regards to the ingredients, you can use cheddar cheese instead of feta as an alternative. If you didnt want to use chicken mince, you could even swap it for pork mince. The general recipe ingredients are spot on though for a tasty sausage roll.
A yummy dessert - one that is different to the normal tiramisu. My husband came across this recipe in a weekly womans magazine I buy (he likes to flick through my mags!!) and asked me to make it for him. I am not really a dessert person, but I must admit I did like this. Hope you enjoy it.
I love my chicken and I especially love the different ways the Indonesians cook it. When I was over there last time I asked for the recipe. Bear in mind they get the spices from the market and use a mortar & pestle to crush them, but I just use store bought and crushed! - I cook the chicken in a frypan with olive oil to seal the seasoned chicken and then pop it in the oven for about 20 - 30 minutes (depending on the thickness) to cook it through. However the quicker option would be to deep fry it (if you can afford the calories!!!). Chicken done this way is great served with Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice). I hope you enjoy.
Hubby and I love our Italian food! The sauce in this gnocchi recipe is very tasty! If I don't have fresh oregano or sage, I use dried herbs. You can also use button or oyster mushrooms instead of the swiss brown. A very nice meal with crusty bread!
