This is probably one of the easiest dinner meals to make and as a kid i absolutely loved this dish (many fond memories!). It can easily be prepared ahead and placed in the fridge ready to go to put in the oven.
These are seriously cute and addictive! I make these all the time (and sneak bits of the extra stuff!)and give them as gifts especially for easter and Christmas. Great to make with kids as well as they'll have a ball decorating them...I know i do! You don't have to use the chocolate icing, I just find that the flavour matches well with the cookie and provides a great base to stick the decorations too as it sets well. The number of men it makes is just a guess and will vary with different sized cookie cutters.
A yummy, crunchy slice with (surprisingly) as much flavour as traditional slices high in butter and sugar. This was originally a recipe in Too Good To Be True but I've made changes to remove all butter and further reduce the amount of sugar used. Also low GI.
Yes, it's a vegetarian chili con carne using TVP instead of beef. I actually served it up to my family and my dad and brother didn't really seem to notice the lack of meat so it's a great way to sneak in a vegetarian meal! It's also a great meal for kids (maybe just reduce the quantity of chili though) as you use those supermarket dinner rolls or corn chips to scoop it up...it's messy but it's fun!
I love risottos, and after undergoing several adaptations over the years believe me when I say that this recipe has been tried and tested! This is a recipe that's quite close to me as it's one of the first things I learnt how to cook, and it's the first I created on my own, so I hope you enjoy. As with all risottos, you know the deal, the key is to continually stir the rice to release the starch.
This has an amazing aroma and a really large depth of flavour. If you're vegetarian or vegan just check your red curry paste as many are made with shrimp paste and/or fish sauce, but you can get some without these ingredients.
A great wintery comfort-style dessert. A little lighter than your traditional bread and butter puddings as i haven't included butter, and you'll find that this is also lactose free! Apricots can be substituted for the peaches if desired.
This muesli came about after I made a lifestyle change to eat healthier. I needed a good breakfast cereal free of added sugars and preservatives but was also fulfilling (but still tasted yum!)...and i think i satisfied my need! I've provided a base recipe along with other ingredients you could add so you can customise to suit your tastes. Super easy to put together aswell! The number of serves is only guess, but i can tell you it makes a lot!
I've adapted this from a Rosemary Stanton recipe putting my own little twist on things. This loaf is a bit healthier than many regular loaf and cake recipes. It's free of lactose, butter and eggs and is a great snack when you're on the move or looking for a healthier alternative to satisfy those indulgent cravings!
It's not actually a sorbet, more or less a frozen yoghurt...but it tastes soooooo good! It's a fairly basic recipe that you can experiment with by adding fruits and flavoured yoghurts to get a taste that best suits you.
No need for Chinese take-out, this tastes way too good! It's a recipe I created after visiting Phuket as I fell in love with the use of brightly coloured vegetables and fresh ingredients. This is a versatile recipe where you can replace the pork with chicken, prawns, tofu or just add extra vegies. It's a rough estimate on the quantity of vegetables used here, so feel free to play around with what you add...hope you enjoy! (note: snowpeas are also a good addition to this recipe but I usually don't have them on hand so it's not included in the recipe list!) (second note: I find it tastes better when the veggies are really chunky!)
This probably has to be the easiest quiche ever! I'm not sure where the recipe came from, but mum would make it all the time and it's just so nice as it isn't too heavy. If desired, you could add 1 cup grated zucchini (excess moisture squeezed out) or a can of creamed corn to the mixture or add some tomato slices to the top of the quiche before baking.
These are really easy and perfect for parties or any occaision where finger food is necessary. They can be eaten hot or cold, store well so they can be made a day or two in advance if need be and the curry taste is quite mild and suitable for kids! I'd say they could be frozen before baking so if you're in a hurry all you have to do is defrost and they're ready to bake. Did I mention they're really yummy! They usually don't last more than a day in my house!
An old classic, especially great for kids (to make and eat!). Definitely supervise children when melting the butter, sugar and honey in the saucepan though...when I first made this when I was a kid I was cooking by myself and set the saucepan on fire, I then ran away because I was scared! The importance of supervision! The peanuts are optional, and can easily be left out if they're for birthday parties, etc, where nut allergies may be present.
A yummy slice that is great for morning teas and entertaining, plus it looks pretty impressive as well! For ease of cutting when the slice has set, I recommend cutting grooves in the chocolate whilst it is soft, and proceeding to cut with a hot knife when ready to cut, otherwise you'll find (as I did!) that the chocolate tends to crack everywhere...not that it affects the taste! I find a mixture of milk and dark chocolate tastes best for the topping, but you can use one or the other to suit your tastes.
A very easy slice to make that gives huge rewards! I get many comments on this recipe and it usually disappears very quickly whenever i take it anywhere, plus it's fairly economical as well, using ingredients that are usually lying in the cupboard or fridge anyway. You can use what ever jam you happen to have on hand, you could even substitute in some marmalade or even a nice lemon or lime butter...the possibilities are endless! If you don't have shredded coconut, using all desiccated coconut is more than fine.
If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, this would be it! It's so good, i make it whenever i go to barbeques or dinners and it's always popular (i'm usually first in line!). This recipe does make a lot (as a side), so if you're just making it for your family feel free to reduce it by a half or two-thirds, otherwise you may be eating it for the next week!
