New Truffles for the Taste Cooks Club

My time hosting the Cooks Club Challenge over on the Taste forums has come to an end. The other recipe that I chose for my round was Chocolate Truffles (with the first two recipes being M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies & Mediterranean Lamb Pizza), I have already blogged about the two recipes I use regularly for […]

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 […]

Cookbook Challenge – The Christmas Edition!

As if my library thing widget knew what time of year it was, last week it chose ‘The Festive Season Handbook’ for my cookbook challenge book #16. This little book was published locally in Victoria in 1990 and has some wonderful background stories to accompany the chapters and recipes. It is great to read the […]

Getting into the Christmas Spirits

A Healthy(?) Dose of Organisation

I have finally managed to get around to organising my cookbook and food magazine bookcase after the move.

Menu Plan Monday (& A Couple of Recipes)

It’s time for another week of Menu Plan Monday! I didn’t deviate from my plan at all last week and managed to cook everything, so that is great. It is so good knowing that dinner is all planned out. Before I tell you my menu plan for this week I am going to share a […]

Eggplant & Mozzarella Rolls (& Menu Plan Monday)

Well, I managed to stick to my menu plan for most of the week last week and it really helped me to actually eat something worthwhile rather than not knowing what to cook and ending up eating rubbish, so this week I am doing a plan again. But first I’m going to share one of […]
