Easy Creamy Chicken Curry Review Posted on April 12, 2017

OMG, this was so delicious. I could have gone back and eaten more and more. The chicken was so tender and juicy, the sauce was so full of flavor, and it was so easy to make. Definitely going to become a family favorite. All of the family absolutely loved it. Thanks, Sharon, for the recipe.

Beef and barley soup Review Posted on April 9, 2017

Wow, what a yum soup. Instead of mince, I used diced oyster blade steak, and it was like having a Campbell's Chunky Soup. So full of flavor but with less salt. I am very glad to have another soup recipe. I was getting sick of having the same old pumpkin or chicken soup.
Thanks, Sarah Seddon, for sharing your recipe.

Lamb hot pot casserole Review Posted on April 7, 2017

This was so tasty. I added zucchini, parsnip, swede, and turnip to ours. Anything like a stew, I add as many vegetables in as I can get so that I don't have to cook extra. The meat was sooooo tender. Hubby said he would have preferred it without the pasta shells, but the daughter liked the shells in.
Thanks, Kaitie Sallway, for the recipe.

Saucy Snag Casserole Review Posted on April 7, 2017

This was so yum. It was so tasty and a winner with everyone in the house. Instead of a 440 g tin of crushed tomatoes, I used 2 x 410 g tins of crushed tomato, and I had a little less than 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce. I also added in some zucchini and mushrooms.
Thanks, Mel, for sharing your recipe with us.

Caramel Banana Whirls Review Posted on March 20, 2017

I made these the other night, and I have to say, they were yum. They ended up tasting a cross between golden syrup dumplings and banana fritters. They whole family like them, which makes them a winner in my eyes.
Thanks Tanya Eade for sharing your recipe.

Chicken Korma Review Posted on March 10, 2017

Well, this was a winner in our house. So full of flavour. I left my chicken thighs whole instead of dicing them, and I also added cashew nuts in about an hour before the end of the cooking time since our favourite Indian restaurant used to have cashews in theirs. When it came to adding the yoghurt and cornflour mix, I turned the slow cooker off, but I then put it back on low so that it stayed hot while my rice and vegetables were cooking.
Thank you, to the creator of this recipe. I love korma dishes but have found I don't like the store-bought jars. This one had such a better taste than the bought ones and was easy to make.

Peanut Butter Chicken – LOW CARB – Review Posted on March 6, 2017

I loved this. So easy to make compared to my previous satay recipe. Eldest daughter loved it the way it was (and she hates chicken thighs), but hubby felt it was missing something. Next time when I make it, because I will be making it again, I might add a couple of dashes of Tobasco sauce to it to give it a little bit of kick. Being that I am Insulin Resistant and should be curbing my carb intake, I am loving that it is low carb, even if I did eat it with rice ;).

Easy French Onion & Bacon Potato Bake Review Posted on March 6, 2017

Wow, this was so easy and simple to make and tasted so delicious. Definitely going to make it this way from now on. So much less mess than the usual way in the oven, especially with my non stick slow cooker 😉

EASY CHUNKY CURRY BEEF & VEGIE CASSEROLE Review Posted on March 6, 2017

Oh, my goodness. This was so yummy. I had double the meat, so I doubled the stock, stock cube, curry powder, and herbs. The vegetables I added were 1 diced zucchini , a 200 gram punnet of diced mushrooms , 2 diced onions , 2 diced parsnips , 2 diced carrots, 1 diced swede, 3 stalks of diced celery, and 1 diced sweet potato. I added frozen beans and peas and corn an hour before the end of cooking time. At the end, it was quite watery, so I just kept mixing in cornflour mixed with water until it thickened. I served it with mashed potato, and boy was it so tasty. The meat was so tender and yum. Definitely making this again. There were plenty of leftovers that I might even make pies out of.

Bbq Plum Chinese Chicken Review Posted on September 27, 2016

OMG, this was so yum and so easy. And finally, everyone in the family agreed that they liked it. Will definitely be making this again. The flavours weren't too strong and the meat just fell apart. Even the daughter who hates thigh fillets, enjoyed the meal.
For those in the same boat as me, I didn't have sweet soy sauce, so I used salt reduced soy sauce and two teaspoons of sugar, and it still tasted delish.

Saucy steak pasta Review Posted on September 16, 2016

Well, this was yum. I added extra ingredients to this. I added bacon, 1 grated zucchini, 1 grated parsnip, 1 grated turnip, 3 grated mushrooms (only had three in the fridge), half a green capsicum diced small, half a red capsicum diced small, and 2 stalks of celery diced small. My meat was a bit tough, but I think it was either that I overcooked because my slow cooker was bubbling away even on low, or it was just the cut of meat I used (Heart Smart, which doesn't have the fat, but my kids complain with the fat on even though it makes the meat so much more tender).

Mint Oreo Fudge Review Posted on September 14, 2016

This is so yummy. The Oreo chocolate leaves little bits of biscuit through it to give it a bit of crunch.

Creamy pork chops Review Posted on September 11, 2016

Yay, a new way of doing pork. I like a bit of variety but didn't have many ways of doing pork.
I used Pork Midloin steaks instead of chops (I hate having the bone, which is funny because I don't mind chicken bones) and I used half a green capsicum and half a red capsicum.
So easy to make and came out absolutely delicious. Definitely making this one again.

Mongolian beef Review Posted on September 9, 2016

Wow. Once reading that this was better than store bought, I had to try it. I must say, it didn't disappoint. I had about 1.1 kg of beef, so I doubled the recipe. And this time, I adjusted my cooking time to compensate for my slow cooker, and the meat turned out absolutely beautiful. I ended up cooking it for 3 hours on low instead of the 3.5 - 4 hours.
The family's only real negative was they found the sauce to be a bit intense, but all that means is that next time I make it (and there will definitely be a next time), I will probably reduce the amount of the sauce a little or add a bit more water.

French Onion Steak Review Posted on September 9, 2016

Wow. What a nice flavour. The only issue I had was I think I overcooked it. The meat turned out a bit dry but it could have been two things. One, I didn't use the meat mentioned in the recipe, I used silverside steak. Two, I really have to learn to adjust my cooking times because my new slow cooker cooks hotter, and I am finding I am overcooking everything. LOL. I just hate deviating from a recipe. I will learn, though.
I will definitely be making this again.

Smoky Bacon & BBQ Sausages Review Posted on September 6, 2016

Another winner.
This was so tasty and so easy to make. The family enjoyed it, but we all decided that next time, I need to reduce the BBQ sauce because it was a bit strong for us.
The sauce was fairly runny toward the end of the cooking time, so I used cornflour to thicken it. I will definitely make this again.

Clinkers & Toblerone Fudge Review Posted on September 3, 2016

This was a great recipe. Followed the instruction to a tee. The only difference was I used chocolate coated honeycomb instead of clinkers because the store didn't have any clinkers. Oh, I also used Cadburys dairy milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate.
Turned out brilliant. Tasted yummo, as well. Now I am thinking I might have to try some other types.

Saucy Pulled Lamb & Slaw Sliders Review Posted on September 1, 2016

This was the first time I have done anything other than putting Mixed Herbs and roasting a lamb. It was so easy and had yummy smells going through the house for the day.
We had it in tortillas and then baked spuds another day.
Definitely one I would make again.

Honey & Garlic Chicken Review Posted on September 1, 2016

Very, very tasty.
I used 1.6 kilos of chicken drumstick, so I increased all the other ingredients by half again. My slow cooker cooks a bit hotter, so next time I will reduce the cooking time as the chicken was a little bit dry. The meat just fell off the bones.
Will definitely make this again, though.

Creamy Chicken Carbonara Review Posted on August 22, 2016

I didn't mind this. I thought it was yum apart from me overcooking the pasta (I added what I thought was the right amount, but after 15 minutes, I decided to add the rest, so I ended up cooking for longer to make sure the newer pasta cooked) and putting in too much bacon (I only had a little left, so I thought I would add it in instead of putting it back in the fridge).
Family's thoughts were that the pasta was overcooked, too much bacon, and they preferred it the way I did it before. Apart from that, they enjoyed it.

Fast’n’Easy Chicken Soup Review Posted on August 18, 2016

OMG, this was so easy to make and scrumptious to eat. Will definitely be making this again.

Classic Curried Mince Review Posted on August 18, 2016

This was such a great recipe. Full of flavour. I added more vegies to mine. Some parsnips, swede, turnip, and celery. I served it with mashed potato and it was yum. Using the leftovers to make curry puffs.

Teriyaki Wings Review Posted on August 16, 2016

Wow, these were so yum. Talk about fall of the bone and packed full of flavor. I can see this being made with drumsticks for those who don't like wings (like the rest of my family).
I will definitely make this again.

Sticky honey chicken Review Posted on August 16, 2016

I used a kilo of chicken and had it on low. Cooked it for about 8 hours but found it was too long and the meat was a bit dry. I think my new slow cooker cooks a bit hotter than my previous one. It was starting to stick to the bottom, so I added a bit more water. While I was out, hubby added a bit too much water and it became runnier. The flavour was still really nice. Will definitely be making this one again but cooking it for less time. I was even thinking that I could add some veggies in and make it a pie filling.
