I made these using 3 different recipes (more spice, more fruit, good method). Aussies-I uses Woolworths Select mixed dried fruit but picked out the glace cherries! Prep time doesn't include all the rising and so on. They took 2 hours to make start to finish, but I Face Booked and got dinner ready while they were rising!
I ate lots of Lok Lak on a recent holiday to Cambodia. It's similar to Vietnamese Shaking Beef although the Cambodians don't like to admit that. In Cambodia it might come with chips (fries) and a fried egg or rice-I liked the rice option. You eat it by wrapping portions of the meat and salad ingredients in a lettuce leaf, then dipping that in the dipping sauce (the best part of it I reckon). Sometimes the meat is sliced, sometimes it's cubed-I prefer slices. Semi ripe tomatoes are preferred to ripe ones, but use what you have!
Jewelies made these yesterday while our friend Wendy was visiting. Wendy made them this morning for brunch. They were yummy and I'm thinking would make great kids food (a lot tidier than watching a littly eat canned spaghetti!) Wendy added in chopped bacon and we all reckon onion and/or capsicum would be good in there too. The texture is more like an omelette than an actual muffin.
I found this on the Food Channel site (Australian) and made this today for visitors tonight. I don't have a mixer with a dough hook, so kneaded it on my bench top for 20 minutes. It was very sticky but a tiny bit of flour sprinkled over the bench made it very easy to work.
From one of my son's cookbooks. After reading the recipe, I realised it's just a big macaroon (my new favourite thing) with a yummy orange syrup poured over. What could be nicer?! I'm making this for visitors next week.
A recipe I found in one of my son's cookbooks. I've got 6 jumbo quail in the freezer and plan to make this soon. It looks simple which is how I like my quail! The recipe really didn't give cooking times or quantities of herbs etc but that's ok with me! So, I have put zero in cooking time!
I ate these delicious oven baked eggs in a little cafe very recently while on a few days away. I did my best to recreate them for brunch this morning, and think mine, made with home grown tomatoes and no thoughts about profit, were better! Probably nothing like the real thing, but a yummy breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner dish!
We fell in love with something very similar to this on a recent trip to Thailand. This is husband Russ's very good attempt at making them at home. We were able to buy the fried garlic and fried shallots at a local Asian supermarket. Very, very morish! Our cashews weren't salted but we used around half a teaspoon, so salt is to taste.
I've made this a couple of times recently to take to tapas style parties-served in small bowls, it's yummy (I think!) I think it serves round 12 like this. I use low fat products, but that's up to you.
A recipe from my friend Chris. Make sure your stock is well flavoured and you really cook the onions to a sticky caramelised state-this simple recipe relies on those two things for it's yummy flavour. Serve these cold or warm with chutney or tomato sauce. No time given in the prep for refridgerating the mix.
I'm lucky to often get quinces. I went in search of a recipe to make jelly yesterday and found this on lynwood preserves. I made a recipe and a half and am posting that version here. Prep time doesn't include the time taken to strain the liquid initially.
I ate a lot of papaya salad on a recent trip to Thailand and it's been my wish to make it at home Food.com member Leggy Peggy arrived to stay a few days ago and brought with her a green papaya for me to make this. My son bought me the little Thai cooking book in Thailand on our holiday that this came from.
I found this on Taste and have made it a couple of times in an effort to use some of the tons of zucchini we have available right now. It's a great recipe! The three hours salting of the zucchini isn't included in the prep time.
