Given to me by a friend of a friend. I like this one as you can adjust the seasonings to suit your taste and what you have to hand. Personally, I think this dish is best made the day before you want to eat it, the flavours the day after are the best!
This is great hot or cold. Good for picnics. You could also use chicken drumsticks instead of quartering a whole chicken or chilli paste if you can't get harissa. Great with a side salad and a squeeze of lemon. From Donna Hay.
This is from the Donna Hay cookbook "Cooking from the Shelf". It's my favourite way to eat vegetables! Serve the sauce over steamed bok choy, gai larn, broccoli, green beans, whatever you want! You can substitute dry sherry if you don't have the rice wine.
My partner and I love this fresh, summer pasta dish. It's adapted from Super Food Ideas magazine (October 2005). Occasionally I'll add some fresh leg ham, torn into pieces at the last step, particularly if we're after a more "meaty" flavour. And if I have extra time, I'll roast the pumpkin in the oven with a splash of olive oil rather than use the microwave.
This is from Donna Hay magazine Dec/Jan 2007. I gave away chunks of this as little christmas gifts to my colleagues and clients and the praise has rolled in on my first week back at work after the holidays. So quick and easy, such good results. I used "Club" dark chocolate as couldn't find dark cooking chocolate at my little independent grocery store.
Christmas in Australia falls in the middle of summer, so I drag this recipe out every year as an alternative to hot puddings and fruit cake. Like so many recipes in my cookbook, I'm not sure where this one came from.
My dad used to make this one when I was a kid. I think the original recipe was adapted from a Women's Weekly cookbook. I cook this from memory and by eye so I'm not sure that my measurements will be 100% accurate. This is great served hot or cold.
