  1. Txs for recipe! Pls add Imperial (US) measures to recipes coz you are international. :+) I use F not C, and teaspoons and cups. :+)
  2. I wanted to review two recipes at once so I made French Onion Dip 125528 and put a little aside for tasting. With the remaining mix I added enough milk to get a consistency right for the above recipe (as the dip was thick after standing for a while)and made the recipe as stated. My husband is not keen on creamy dishes but the soup counteracted the flavour enough that he enjoyed this potato dish and I will make it again. Make sure your potato is sliced thin so that it cooks through till tender.


I live in Perth, Western Australia. I am an Office Manager in a Mining Exploration Company. I love summer and going to the beach. I also like rugging up in warm clothing during winter. I love watching cable tv with my hubby on quiet nights at home. I love cooking with a glass of red wine but equally I like a beer or two! I have two cats who I adore but who live with my parents as our place is on a main road and I want them to have a long life. We have recently acquired 2 Jack Russell puppies who are so adorable. They are now part of our little family. DH and I like to get away down south of Western Australia at least 4 times a year. We are happy to stay in 5 star hotels or camp! Depends on the mood! We have recently purchased a block way down south of Western Australia in a little coastal town called Hopetoun. We are looking forward to building a house and spending a lot more time down there, with the view that we will retire down there and enjoy our fishing life. I am happy with my life and look forward to having children with my lovely husband. I don't have many dislikes but I do dislike bitchiness and arrogance. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
