I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and happy and safe New Year.
Just in time for Christmas my grandson’s decorated gingerbread house. I guess you could say he rather likes freckles, I don’t think there is one side of the house without them.
My grandson came home and said he needed food for his school party, because his dad was so busy with work I said I would make something for him. My grandson said he wanted something sweet, so I decided to refer to the Donna Hay Christmas Magazine that I had recently purchased. Continue reading
Since my grandson has decided to eat vegetarian it is sometimes hard to find food that looks similar to what others eat. These vegetarian sausage rolls not only look similar to those that we know but they taste really good. In fact at a recent gathering where I served these they were eaten by everyone.
I was going through recipes that I have taken out of magazines and printed off the internet trying to put them into some sort of order when I came across this recipe. It was called the magic cake. When all the ingredients are mixed together and poured into the tin the final baked product forms layers. I have made something similar some time ago which used breadcrumbs and these formed the base of a quiche.
It has been a while since my last post and that is partly due to my being a volunteer for Fish For Life an organization raising funds for the Cancer Council. We have just had our Official Launch Event and there was a great deal of time spent on getting the evening organized. Back to normal for now until we start arranging the next function.
This biscuit recipe was one I saw on Better Homes And Gardens made by Fast Ed and I thought it looked great.
Although it is still winter here, and believe me we have had some really cold and windy days, there have been the odd pleasant ones with a blue sky and some sunshine.
On a day that was sunny with very little wind we decided to take our lunch outside and enjoy this weather. We had a very special guest visit us also hoping to be included in our luncheon proceedings. I really wanted to share this with you as it is very special.
My cumquat tree is laden with fruit and I wanted to find a recipe that would use this rather tart ingredient. I have made a cumquat cointreau jam previously, but we are not great users of marmalade or jam, so I wanted something a little different.
I had been doing quite a bit of savoury cooking using ricotta cheese but had bought far too much and had a substantial amount still in my fridge. I decided to surf the net and see what I could find using ricotta cheese but in a sweet recipe. I managed to find a chocolate cake which sounded really good and decided to give it a go.
