Leftover Pork Sliders

Leftover Pork has saved my butt so many times when friends arrive unexpectedly for dinner and it can most certainly save you too. Leftover Pork, beef or chicken for that matter should be in your freezer at all times. With electricity so expensive, I will never put just one roast in my oven. I suggest […]

Toasted Ham Cheese Sandwich – for us it is Sunday night’s treat. I kid you not, we eat toasted sandwiches most Sunday nights, well maybe not when there is Leftover Leg of Lamb Sandwiches. Toasted Ham Cheese sandwiches can be with just plain old cheese and plain old ham and to me it would be […]

Mushrooms and toasted Brioche

Mushrooms and toasted brioche sounds awfully pretentious doesn’t it? Well, take mushrooms on toast and you can literally wake me in the middle of the night with it. Make that toast, toasted, buttery brioche and I have no resistance. Mushrooms and toasted brioche just happened as an quick fix after an event from which I […]

Crispy crunchy buffalo wing

Crispy Crunchy Buffalo wings………. phew, I threw caution to the wind after the 6th one! No wonder the Colonel limits their orders to 6 or 12 chicken wings. These crispy crunchy chicken wings are so addictive and crispy and crunchy is definitely not the only two descriptions I could think of. Think spicy, zingy, hot, […]

Toasted Cheese

Toasted Cheese and tomato sandwiches are our stock standard Sunday night grub. Lots of cheese, lots of black pepper on white bread. Sinful, I know, but delicious. What is it that is so irresistible about melted toasted cheese? If I don’t put a stop to it, my children put grated cheese on a plate and […]

Caramel Popcorn

Caramel Popcorn is my Achilles heel. Put that Caramel popcorn in some milk chocolate and you have a sugar rush of epic proportions. The sea salt will send you over the edge! I have never made Rocky Road before, not exactly sure why, maybe this American invention of milk chocolate marshmallow was just overkill sweet […]

Easy Thai Salad that is delicious with meat, fish, chicken and at the moment, my favorite…… corn fritters. Oh my word, every bite is an explosion in your mouth. It is crunchy, tangy, zesty, spicy and oh so moreish that you just cannot stop. The other night I made a platter full of corn fritters […]

Spicy Mexican

Spicy Mexican food really gets my taste buds going. I love chilies, love fresh coriander and all the different textures and flavors of Mexican food. My family however is not too keen on chilies although I can see little Missy is becoming more adventurous with spicy food so maybe I will sonn have a partner […]
