Menu Plan Monday (& Turkey, Leek & Cranberry Pie)

Although this pie is meant to be made out of leftover turkey meat, I loved the look of it so much that I made last night using fresh turkey steaks. It is from Issue 12 of Donna Hay Magazine and there was a rather large omission in the recipe. That is, they forgot to put […]

Challenging Myself in the Taste Cooks Club

As I have mentioned before, I am hosting the Cooks Club Challenge on the Taste Forums at the moment. One of the 3 recipes I chose to challenge everyone with was my M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies, which I made some Christmas versions of last week in an attempt not only to get into the spirit […]
