  • Honey lemon chicken wings with lentil feta salad

    • consortiumlibrary on February 05, 2012

      The chicken wings are both tart and sweet - a very successful combination. Would only use 3 T honey if making for someone who doesn't like sweet with protein. 1-3 teaspoons of sriracha sauce or sambal oelek (depending on how hot you want wings) would be a good addition to chicken glaze. Cover baking sheet with foil and oil lightly (or spray) to keep chicken wings from sticking. I didn't cut the ends off the chicken wings, but did separate the drumette. The salad is delicious. Triple the mint - I also added 3 cloves minced garlic and doubled the lemon juice and olive oil. Didn't have cucumber, so made with tomato - cucumber would've been better but tomato was good. Used shallot instead of red onion which was a wonderful substitute. Don't stint on the black pepper.

  • Caramel chicken

      Agree on cutting the fish sauce. I also cut the sugar by a third. The sauce is intense and requires rice.

    • tinytawnykitten on October 02, 2012

      I would maybe suggest cutting the fish sauce by half. It's a very salty dish otherwise.

  • Citrus risotto with garlic chilli prawns

  • Tagliatelle with chicken and green beans

    • Snadra on November 03, 2011

      Excellent, especially with fresh pasta. Makes quite generous serves.

    • Melanie on March 28, 2014

      I reduced the basil and mixed some pesto in instead. Easy to bring everything together while the pasta water is boiling / pasta is cooking.

  • Fish burritos

    • aargle on August 12, 2015

      This is my go to recipe for the fish component. Very tasty. I don't bother with the cucumber salad but instead use the slaw recipe from the blog Bon Appetempt. A family favourite dinner.

    • Sannalee on May 01, 2013

      The family really loved this dinner, and the advantage for the cook is it is really fast to pull together. The fish only needs to marinate for 15 mins and cooks in 3 mins. The cucumber salad is easy too. I served with Karen Martini spicy beans which was a great addition.

    • svokes on April 26, 2018

      Fish tacos - a family favourite

  • Fresh baked beans

    • Melanie on March 28, 2014

      Delicious and easy to make - I loved the crispy prosciutto over the top of the beans.

  • Simple sweetcorn cakes with avocado salsa

    • Melanie on March 28, 2014

      This tastes really fresh and healthy, with an explosion of taste in your mouth. Would work well for brunch or lunch.

  • Spicy eggplant salad

    • KarinaFrancis on September 23, 2013

      Great do ahead salad. Goes really well with lamb and the leftovers make a great sandwich or wrap filling. Nice with a dollop of plain yogurt

  • Spiced zucchini soup

    • wodtke on February 12, 2016

      Really great! Added 1/2 a large jalapeño, and maybe 1/2 a carton of heavy cream that was in the fridge. Used full amount of zucchini called for, and amazingly, it had a zucchini flavor.

  • Apple and almond puddings

    • Dcampos on January 12, 2020

      I thought the portions were off with the butter, sugar, vanilla, apple mix but it worked. I added lemon juice because it seemed too sweet. I'm glad I did. The recipe calls for a lot of butter and sugar. I used King Arthur gluten free flour and 1/2 tsp Xanthan gum to replace the regular flour. No one knew it was gluten free. I prepped the apple mix & dry ingredients in the AM. It was easy to throw together for a dinner party. Huge hit!

  • Soft-centred chocolate puddings

    • svokes on April 26, 2018

      the ratios of this recipe work for me- quick easy -kids like em

  • Vietnamese chicken salad

    • svokes on April 26, 2018

      favourite - works for dinner too
