Hot cross muffins

Hot Cross Muffins from Delicious Magazine

Last year I made these for Easter and they were a resounding success. You can see the recipe here.


Using online recipes to make weeknight dinners easier

7 Apr


I want to hear from you!

I have a LOT of cookbooks but I find myself searching online for recipe ideas more and more. It just seems easier (although I still love my books and find reading them very relaxing…just not in the “just got home from work and really need to eat soon” window).

So, here are a few dinner recipes that I’ve used recently with great success. If you have any you’d like to share, please leave a comment!

30 minute roast chicken

Tandoori Lamb Cutlets with Bombay Potatoes

Springtime Pasta

Citrus Risotto with Garlic Chilli Prawns (this one I actually have in a Bill Granger book but here it is anyway)

Sausages with Apple and Leek Gravy

Tomato and Chorizo Risotto

Sticky Hoisin Pork with steamed greens (I also have this one in a book but here’s an online version)

This is what the back will look like…

A little clearer...I got the idea for a strip of detail from Film in the Fridge

Cathedral Rock day walk
