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.
Vague title i know but the creative juices for a good recipe name aren't coming so i'll settle with Asian salad! Really quick and easy to prepare, low cal and full of flavour. The recipe was originally in one of the "Too Good To Be True" cookbooks...but then i kind of adjusted it! I do stress that you add the fried noodles right before serving as they will go soggy and you loose the crunchy texture. I also find that adding the sesame oil adds a bit more depth to the flavour but can easily be omitted.
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!
This is pretty much the quickest pasta dish I know how to make, plus it only uses one pot so there is little washing up to do. Really full of flavour, but it doesn't reheat all that well (it still tastes alright but isn't as good as fresh!), so it's best served immediately. If you would like to make it a chicken carbonara add 500g of chicken, cut into 3cm pieces, to the pan when you cook the bacon.
These are so good straight from the oven! However they keep really well in the pantry and can easily be frozen...if they make it for that long! You can substitute milk chocolate chips, even white chocolate, for the dark chocolate.
These cookies are really easy and really yummy..kind of like an Anzac biscuit but with the addition of apricots and white chocolate. The recipe makes about 50 so there are heaps to hand out to friends and family, whilst leaving plenty to keep for yourself! If your baking a couple of trays at once just remember to swap them around half-way through cooking.
There's a little cafe close to where i live that makes this salad and it is absolutely divine! It tastes even better when its been made a day or so ahead as the dressing goes right through the salad, soaked up by the couscous and sultanas. This recipe does make quite a lot, we use it as a side dish and it feeds my family for a few nights! However, the recipe can easily be halved. Use vegetable stock powder to make vegetarian.
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!
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.
This is my Dad's Caesar salad recipe and i absolutely love it! It's really fresh and light, as opposed to some of those really gluggy, heavily dressed Caesar salads i've encountered at stodgy cafes! Most parts of the salad can be prepared ahead of time, such as the croutons, dressing and the eggs, add then tossed altogether before serving. Enjoy!
Mum used to make these biscuits for me all the time as a kid, and they are still so good! I think they may have come from a Women's Weekly cookbook, but they're really simple biscuits to make, use basic ingredients and suit so many tastes... whenever they've been made they always go down a real treat (and they look pretty special to!).
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 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 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.
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.
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!
