Sausage Stroganoff

Winter in our home is usually filled with lots of slow cooked meals and casseroles.  Last year I frequently made beef stroganoff.  This year I thought I would mix it up and try something a little different… sausage stroganoff, kid friendly and a real family pleaser.  We love sausage meals, the kids always enjoy them […]

    The instructions don’t mention the zucchini? But I assume you put it in with the carrot etc.
    I use a virtually identical recipe but I also add finely diced red capsicum. I use a whole zucchini and I grate rather than dice the carrot – it adds a lovely sweetness and is undetectable in the sauce!
    So much healthier this way, and stacks cheaper as you’re using less meat. Winner! :) ReplyCancel

Fast Midweek Meal – Spaghetti and Meatballs

 This recipe is for those nights that you want to have dinner cooked and served fast.  I enjoy making my own meatballs, for occasions like this it’s handy having some in the freezer (defrost through the day) or you can purchase them prepared for you in the meat section at the supermarket. Quick Spaghetti and Meatballs […]

    Would love your recipe for the actual meatballs – it’d be great to have a few batches in the freezer (I need gluten free so the supermarket ones are no good for me).ReplyCancel

    • Sue I cheated on this recipe and purchased them from the supermarket.ReplyCancel

        I ended up mixing up a big batch of meatballs yesterday, as I had just bought mince and wanted to have some ready in the freezer. I’m using 1/3 in your recipe tonight so if they pass the test I’ll post my recipe. I was low on breadcrumbs so they may end up falling apart but we’ll see.ReplyCancel

Cheeseburger Pasta Bake

Pasta Bakes are a meal that I can easily make through the day, pop in the fridge, head out to sports in the evening and when I get home I put it in the oven.  The kids will shower and by the time they are finished dinner is ready.  I have been making very healthy […]

Slow cooker Moroccan beef curry

I really liked this recipe, it is filled with loads of vegetables and chickpeas. I found this recipe at Claire K Creations, I used a 250g jar of mango chutney, next time I will use 3/4 of the jar as I felt the whole jar was too overpowering.

  • So glad you liked it Kat! It can vary a little from chutney to chutney but I am a chutney lover. Thanks so much for featuring it!ReplyCancel

  • Carolyn

    Was I the only one to notice that the recipe is titled Moroccan Beef but the ingredients list says lamb? I guess I noticed more because I am a lamb producer ….??ReplyCancel

Cheats Gourmet Pepper Steak

I found this recipe on the back of a Gravox Pepper Steak Gravy mix packet many years ago, it’s absolutely delicious and a nice ‘occasional’ accompaniment to a good piece of steak. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo when I cooked it recently, however on my endeavour to see if Gravox had a photo (which they […]

    Question the recipe says ‘sugar’ in step 4 but I’m not seeing it on the ingredient list. Is there sugar?ReplyCancel

  • Ingrid Thigpen Wise

    How much sugar? It is not listed. Also, I am in the U.S. and am not familiar with a “rasher” of bacon. Is it a slice?ReplyCancel
