Sticky Asian Slow Cooked Pork

This is a real family favourite, and despite being Asian in flavour, it goes just as well on mashed potatoes as it does with steamed rice or noodles. Children love this dish and it fills the house with a warm, salty sweet fragrance that has everyone at the table early. Ingredients 1.2-1.5kg pork shoulder or […]

Home Made Dumpling Wrappers

In cold weather I definitely have dumplings on my mind. My favourite childhood comfort food. My mother would often bring me a take out container full of “pot sticker” pork and spring onion dumplings when I was sick at home. Whenever we make dumplings we always bought the wrappers from the store and I still […]

“Pot Sticker” Dumplings

Dumplings are a family favourite and one of the special food-related ways that I show my boys how much I love them. Even when the toddler is trying to climb my leg like a (very short and stumpy) tree, and my school boy is asking me about scientific concepts that make my brain fall to […]

Once a Week Cooking Plan: Slow Cooker Meat and Veg Meals – Menu 3

These slow cooker recipes are only slightly more complex than the previous slow cooker menus. A little cooking work is required before you put the ingredients into the zip lock bag, but by now I expect you’re such a pro at this, that the extra work will only add a half hour to your preparations.

Once-A-Week Cooking Plan: Soups (meat and vegetarian menus!)

It’s time for soup, and lots of soup, preferably with lots of bread for dipping. Soup is the kind of thing you can knock up and have going on the backburner all day. You can indeed make once weeks’ worth of soup in one day, enough for dinners and even lunches from leftovers. Really the […]

Vietnamese Style Chicken and Lemon Grass Meatballs with Rice noodles and Pickles
