Notes about Recipes in this site

  • Lime and sesame beef stir-fry

    • Jane on July 13, 2016

      Very quick and easy weeknight dinner. I didn't have bok choy so made it with just broccoli and snow peas and it was very good. Lime flavor really comes through.

    • Krisage on June 02, 2019

      We skipped the beef and stir-fried some mushrooms instead. Nice!

  • Braised oxtails with star anise

    • sir_ken_g on June 06, 2017

      Used free range stew meat. Very tasty.

  • Chicken laksa

    • Rinshin on November 25, 2016

      I made this using the turkey stock from the Thanksgiving Day turkey and leftover turkey meat. Otherwise I followed the recipe. Excellent flavor and so fresh tasting with all the fresh herbs, vegetables added on top. I'll be making this again. Perfect antidote to too much of carb heavy Thanksgiving dishes.

  • Baked chicken with cranberry glaze

    • Kirstin_the_Kiwi on April 26, 2019

      I tried to find cranberries but no luck so far so I used mango chutney instead. The dish was okay but not amazing

  • Italian jam tarts

    • luluf on July 16, 2020

      Not enough jam for the tart and I used a 23 cm tin. The pastry did not come together, I added a very small amount of extra olive oil but it was still crumbly. Unfortunately my jam set too much by the time I had the pastry ready so was quite hard to spread. It’s in the oven now. I’m not an expert baker but I have made pastry and tarts before. I don’t think I’ll be making this again, a bit of a disappointment but maybe it will taste ok

  • Beef lasagne

    • fairyduff on August 11, 2020

      The best version that I have found for making a lasagne from leftover Bolognese. Good instructions for the white sauce. Follow the instructions for the layers for best results.

  • Corn and feta fritters

    • fairyduff on March 07, 2021

      Skipped the mint and got a uncomplicated nursery-food version that suited my fussy eaters. (Sshhhh! don't tell them it had feta!). Nice and puffy, a basic pan-fritter with a bit of sweet (corn kernels) and a bit of salty (feta). Leftovers will do for lunchboxes. This one's a keeper.
