When winter hits and it is cold outside it is a great time to cook up some warming stews, casseroles and roasts.
This is a hearty pea soup in which dried split peas and a ham bone are cooked with carrots, potatoes, onions and a pinch of marjoram. You can choose to soak the peas overnight or use the faster method explained in the recipe.
A lovely winter warming soup packed full of vegetables. Watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Leek and Cauliflower Soup Video.
I love apple crumble. Even more than apple pie. After many years of trial and error and amalgamating other recipes I think I've finally perfected it! Or to the delight of my taste buds anyway.
This recipe takes about 1.5hrs to cook. It 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 got me onto this yummy meatloaf recipe!
This is a warm, rich, silky, but very traditional pudding, perfect with vanilla ice cream on a cold winter night. Its almost guaranteed not to fail, and if you have kids they will enjoy the way the sauce slowly creeps to the bottom during cooking.
