Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Tuna pilau

    • aargle on September 14, 2013

      This a fabulously easy Sunday night dinner. I use whatever curry paste I happen to have on hand.

  • Minted pea soup with smoked salmon & cream cheese toasts

    • JKDLady on July 22, 2014

      This was a really fast recipe and one that can be made from the pantry, if you have frozen peas. I don't think the mint is strictly necessary. My boys have already asked to have this made again.

  • Salmon spaghetti with herbed sour cream

    • Kirstin_the_Kiwi on July 02, 2016

      Made using cream cheese instead of sour cream -too rich ?

  • Maple snags with mustard mash

    • KIGirl on September 04, 2014

      I substituted maple syrup with kangaroo island honey

  • Pumpkin, sage & ricotta lasagne

    • e_ballad on May 03, 2017

      Simply fantastic. Very easy to put together & have prepared this ahead of time in the past.

  • Bean & tomato soup

    • e_ballad on June 10, 2018

      We found this fairly bland. I added a Parmesan rind when reheating the leftovers, which improved the flavour significantly. I must also confess that I didn’t garnish the soup with the roasted cherry tomatoes on the vine as per the recipe.

  • Lemon & oregano lamb with cucumber & yoghurt salad

    • e_ballad on February 04, 2019

      Fantastic marinade with a huge hit of flavour. The side salad was fine but nothing extraordinary.

  • Cheesy tomato risotto

    • e_ballad on January 08, 2020

      Very family-friendly, with kiddo having 3x serves. Recipe states that this will feed 4x kids or 2x hungry adults - I think it would be 6-8x kids or 4x adults.

  • Four bean soup with barley

    • e_ballad on March 04, 2018

      Bland. If vegetarian, I’d pop in a Parmesan rind. If vegan, I’d up the stock to water ratio. If carnivorous, I’d add bacon.

  • Rice noodles with sweet-chilli meatballs

    • e_ballad on November 22, 2017

      Tasty & quick. Much like the inner workings of a pork dumpling. I also used hoisin sauce instead of sweet chilli sauce for my chilli-averse husband with good reports.

  • Tuscan burgers

    • e_ballad on March 03, 2017

      Only so-so. I'm not sure that the pesto added any flavour to the burger, though we did feel that this was quite a salty burger, with both the pancetta & Parmesan in the pesto likely contributing to this.

  • Moroccan pasties with roasted beets & carrots

    • e_ballad on March 07, 2017

      A great dish. This would be perfect as a 'cooking ahead' dish, as the pasty filling needs to be completely cooked. I made it a day ahead & had dinner on the table within 30 mins. Always a winner!
