This is something I came up with one day when I was feeling adventurous. You fry the pork in the oil first, then add lemon juice, a little water and spices and pressure cook for 30 minutes. You end up with yummy flavoursome pork. Try it!
Rich, small, delectable and adorable. They taste like a Mars-bar flavoured chocolate crackle. I made these for my son's 5th birthday party and the kids (and adults) loved them. The recipe is from the Women's Weekly Cupcake book which I adapted for mini muffins. Edited to add: I recently made these as normal cupcake-sized muffins and it was much faster and more convenient to make them in this way.
I wanted a thick tomato sauce with lots of summer vegetables but without jalapenos or hot spices. I needed something with simple flavours for a pasta sauce or as a base for other dishes. Since I didn't find one, I made up my own and here it is.Note that in my method you don't process the jars after filling so it is relatively quick to do.
This is a very simple kid-pleasing recipe without a lot of fancy ingredients. You boil the meat first with some veggies to make a stock and then tip everything into the oven over rice to cook. Very simple and very tasty.
Someone requested this recipe (which I remembered from my childhood in Melbourne) and as I was writing it down I also remembered how easy it was to make and how delicious. So I have posted it here for everyone to enjoy.
I tried this salad at a Greek restaurant on my summer holidays in Pelion. I don't think it's Argentinian but it really is a delicious combination of lettuce, walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella. I ended up eating just the salad and ignored my main course! Try it and see for yourself.
I have looked through some wonderful chocolate-orange muffin recipes here but none quite like this one which I have tweaked from Jane Brody. It's a healthy light orangey muffin which is especially nice for breakfast.
This is taken from the Jane Brody cookbook and it is a lighter and healthier version of a salmon mousse. It is delicious and makes a wonderful entree but note that it needs to chill for at least 3 hours so make ahead.
This is much nicer than it sounds. It is an elegant and attractive sweet to serve after a dinner and I make it every Easter as it is vegan or 'nistissimo' as the Greeks say. Note that the preparation time is just an estimate.
When my husband tried this he asked where I had bought it from and couldn't believe I had made it. I found this recipe on the Eagle brand website and tweaked it a little. It is exactly what you need for a chocolate fix....
This is an incredibly easy salad to make and it tastes fabulous. When I saw it I didn't think it could be so good considering it uses tinned vegetables but try it for yourself and you will see! Note that it needs at least 4 hours to marinade.
Bites of seasoned chicken breast mixed in a pilaf with currants, almonds and sauteed vermicelli. I got this recipe from a student (thanks Petroula!)and it has pleased even the fussiest and most unadventurous eaters,namely my MIL and BIL, so I would recommend it whole-heartedly. It's also very simple to make, you only dirty one pot and it makes a large amount.
This wonderful dark cake is so easy you don't even need a mixer but can stir the ingredients by hand! It's also the recipe I use for my kids' birthday party cakes. I double the recipe and make 4 large rectangular layers which I then fill with various creams/pudding mixes and top with a buttercream frosting.
