There are so many great recipes that can be used as a Japanese entree including nori rolls, sushi, tempura and soups.
This dish will impress your family or your dinner-party guests. A slow-roasted pork belly that gives you beautiful succulent moist tender pork with light crisp crackling - extremely easy and quick preparation time. You can even prepare it ahead by slow-roasting the day before and finish cooking just before serving, with a choice of accompaniments and finishing sauces.
This recipe is one that was passed down from a family friend, and every one that tastes it loves it. Virtually mess free, no mixer required, just a bowl and spoon... now that's my favourite kind of baking...
A non-alchoholic spin, kid friendly on the classic chocolate balls or truffles. These are always a yummy hit.
If you like your cookies soft but not floury, these are for you. You can vary the choc-chips - I love them with mini M&Ms or white chocolate chips and chopped macadamias. Bake them to desired crispness (they firm well when cooled).
When you are looking for a change from banana bread this is a wonderful recipe for banana muffins that is sure to please the fussiest eater.
These mini quiches are so quick and easy you could get your little one to help you. They are great for entertaining, for kids' parties and as a snack and also great for school lunch boxes and can be whipped up in no time! If you don't have puff pastry I have made these without and they still come out really good.
This is the treat my children love to make themselves after a good term at school or when they have a friend staying. One cake is big enough to share between 2 children if you can convince them of it!!!
Dad has always been the master of this recipe which has been handed down from his parents. He makes it every week for a snack. It's beautiful cold and fills the house with that lovely smell of cloves. Once the meat is cold, the slices are just so tender, its awesome. You can make it with a white mustard sauce too if you are having it for dinner.
This is a lovely, moist, rich chocolate cake, which can be eaten just on its own at any time. You can use any oil but I prefer olive oil as it's a nicer flavour. Store in a cake container no longer than a week but keeps longer in the fridge. This cake doesn't last, as everyone in our house loves it!
This recipe is perfect for a take-along 'plate' for footy functions - great hot or cold. Fabulous for sandwiches, as part of a hot buffet or by itself! The BBQ sauce mixture is also lovely as a marinade for ribs, chicken kebabs etc. My mother in-law in Brisbane gave me this yummy recipe!
