  1. First time I have cooked Duck – and this recipe certainly helped me. I used 3 cloves of garlic and left out the salt and forgot to add the onion – didn’t seem to matter as I got a 9/10 from hubby! Can’t comment on the duck as I am veggie – but the sauce was finger licking good! I served with potato wedges, baked beans and a side salad. Simple dish although meat takes a while to cook - worth the time once in a while
  2. Wow this was good! Only change I made was the local supermarket (in Australia) didn't have any ketchup so I used 50% tomato sauce and 50% barbecue sauce. While the sauce itself is quite strong it really worked well with basting and didn't overpower the flavor of the duck.


<P>I'm a Mom of three boys: 19, 16, 13 (Josh, Jake and Jonah) and a 1 yr old golden retriever-Jethro. I work full-time as a Medicare compliance analyst for a non-profit health insurer. I love to cook - although I don't always have enough time to do as I'd like to do. I don't especially care to do the clean up though- but who does?? Food in general brings people together and makes people feel at ease. My boys love to help out in the kitchen-especially if I'm baking bread or baking sweet treats for them. If anyone were to ask them what I put in a recipe - first two ingredients they'd list would be olive oil and garlic -- (well not for the sweet least)! I'm constantly browsing to see how I can alter/influence my family's eating - as well as trying to get it on the table quickly! My boys are all hockey players - so I spend a lot of time at the ice arena. When I have time of my own..I try to get on the golf course or read cookbooks.</P>
