  1. What a wonderful light lunch this made for the DM and me. The addition of sweet chilli sauce is just so good, I used by recipe of recipe #226233 and for the cheese I used a sharp cheddar and a pizza mix cheese blend, popped in the oven at 180C fan forced and 5 minutes later we had a very tasty lunch, thank you Mandy, made for Everyday A Holiday.
  2. This is a great lunchtime idea for leftover baked beans. Seems like I always have just a little bit left over - too much to throw out and too little to really be a meal. This takes care of it! I didn't have any english muffins, so I spread the mixture out on an opened hot dog bun. Yum! Thanks, Mandy!
  3. Thanks Mandy. First I toasted the muffins, then I placed a lightly poached egg on each half before adding the rest already hot. Grilling (broiling?) the cheese on top was my final mission. My idea of heavenly tucker! Gluten-free muffins for my son.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
