Classic Curried Mince Review Posted on May 16, 2016

I thought this was wonderful. I followed the recipe almost completely - I used a couple of cups of the frozen mixed veggies (the little cubes of carrot with corn and peas), as that's what I had on hand. The flavours were great together! I topped it with sweet potato and turned it into a cottage pie. Even my picky almost-7-year-old loved it...I caught her licking her plate! 🙂

Lamb Obsession Review Posted on May 16, 2016

Everyone in our house loves this one, even though there are things in it that each of us do not like. I don't like lamb, my daughter doesn't like mushroom and my husband doesn't like french onion soup. It's still an absolute winner in our house - even better as leftovers the next day (not that there are very many leftovers!). Yum!

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup Review Posted on May 16, 2016

I made this one last night and wow was it tasty!! I followed the recipe, but made a few changes. I used beef stock instead of chicken stock and left out the capsicum, as my husband doesn't like it. I also put it on in the morning on low and let it cook all day (about 9 hours). I then bumped it up to high for the last 30 minutes or so when I added the flour/cream mixture and the cream. It was awesome! It's definitely going to be on our regular rotation. Yum! 🙂

No chop Vegie soup Review Posted on May 16, 2016

Hi Karen - I'm not sure what the directions mean when it says "1 pkt Italian soup mix - rinsed"

How am I meant to be rinsing the packet of soup mix? I love the sound of this one and would like to try it, but I'm not sure about that particular direction. Thanks!

Cola Beef (Coke) Review Posted on May 16, 2016

I made this last week. I put it on in the SC before I left for work in the morning (about 6:45). I then went to work all day and then to a physio appointment after work. Got home from work and finally got around to eating it right around 7:00 pm. It cooked for about 12 hours all up...was delicious! I used a 2 kilo chuck roast and it just fell apart in the SC. I had intended that we use it in sandwiches, and I was able to pull the meat apart just using my wooden spoon, no shredding needed. Made some sliders out of it and used a fresh coleslaw mix (just the veggies without the sauce) on the sandwiches. Used the meat with a little bit of the gravy...divine! 🙂
