  1. This was surprisingly very good, we liked it a lot! I love trying new and unusual recipes, and this was easy to make, apart from the peeling of all the onions! It is a little sweeter than I would normally like, but nevertheless, we did enjoy this with homemade bread, cold cuts and salad this lunch time. Next time, I may add less sultanas and maybe throw in a few pine nuts. A very tasty version of pickled onions and I am so glad I tried this recipe - many thanks Mandy! Made for Holiday Tag. FT:-) PS: Photos were taken but I will have to upload them later as my camera is packed for my trip back to the UK tomorrow!


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..
