  1. I changed this recipe quite a bit as I cooked up some vegetables (eggplant and red pepper) with the meatballs then poured the sauce over it all and let it simmer for 10 minutes. It made an absolutely delicious meal - the flavours are lovely! Thanks for posting this recipe.
  2. Loved these little meatballs...I made mine a little larger than indicated, (15) and used a small tin of lite coconut cream. They were really tasty, thanks for posting. =)


I live in New Zealand, I'm married and my husband and I have no children....but we do have a dog (Bruno the Poodle), and a cat (Gus the Birman)! Back in November 2000, I resigned from a 17yr career with Air New Zealand as a Purser. I am now working as a Private Investigator with my husband - having his own Investigation Company. The work is varied and at times very rewarding as I'm sure you can imagine! I have an absolute passion for shoes...what woman doesn't??!!!, and fashion generally, including that of Home Interiors and furnishings, and gardens. I enjoy, among many past-times, art, gardening, water ski-ing, power walking, and ofcourse...COOKING!!(and entertaining). I guess my pet peeve would be running late for an appointment somewhere! 10 minutes early = 10 minutes late with me!! So, ON time is VERY late!!! If I had a month off - no work, and no responsibilities I would buy 2 return airfares to Honolulu!! And spend 2 weeks on Waikiki Beach with my husband and 2 weeks at home in the kitchen!! And entertaining friends and family.
