    Wow sundried pesto, I have to try that (with garlic too).
    I dont know what my best is. Got rave reviews about my mini pavlova's.
    Also my lamb shanks are a hit.
    Unlike many of you, i've NEVER made a successful lasagne....always something wrong with it (although ALWAYS edible...just not normal)!!!! xoxo

    If you asked me - I'd say my best meal was my salmon curry.
    But if you asked DH ... he'd probably say my prawn and snow pea risotto.

    Oh, and I make great cupcakes - it's a Nigella recipe - totally foolproof and so so yummy.

    my all time favorite - never go wrong, is Satay chicken stirfry.
    Easy as recipe - perfect for those days when you couldnt be stuffed cooking. Actually, not really a recipe, more like -
    300 - 440g chicken - diced, sliced whatever
    an onion. And cook
    When chick almost done, throw in some sweet chilli sauce, stir thru, and a good couple tablespoons of peanut butter. I use low fat smooth. Stir around, and add abit of water to make it more saucy. A dash of soy sauce is good as well
    Then i just chuck in capscium & snow peas, and serve with rice.
    Works better with chicken then beef.

    I am hopeless with receipes, tend to be more of a open the cupboard/fridge, and throw in what ever i feel like, tasting as i go along.

    Easy thing is cooking meat, with some chilli, onion and garlic, chuck in some either terraiki sauce, or black bean or something, throw in some noodles and veges and bobs your uncle. Dinner in a flash.

    Marinade - tandori sauce with yoghurt, on chicken breast.

    Or - for chicken marinade - mix a small amount of water with a packet of french onion soup mix, just enough to make it abit a runny/pasty consistancy. And marainade chicken breasts. Yummo!!!!

    I have a really simple one my mum used to do when we were kids. You can pretty much add any vegies - but the best soup to use is Campbells Big Red I think it is called( have tried others and they are yucky with this recipe)

    Upside Down Pie

    Meat filling
    500G mince meat
    vegies of your choice - Onions , peas , corn , celery, Zucchini , carrot ect ect ..I use about 1-1 1/2 cups of finely chopped vegies
    Can of tomato soup

    1.Brown mince and onions in oil
    2. Add all your vegies
    3. Add 1 large can of tomato soup
    4. Once cooked transfer to a large baking dish ( I use a big square one)


    Scone Mixture for top
    2tblspoons butter
    2cups floor
    1tablespoon salt
    3/4Cups milk

    1.Rub Butter into flour and salt
    2. Add milk and form into a ball
    3 Roll out out fit the size of your baking dish
    4. put dough on top of meat in the dish
    5. Bake at 160degress for approx 30-45mins
    Turn out and the yummy saucey meat will run over the top of the Delicious risen dough !!!!!!!!...a family favourite and cheap cheap cheap!

    Danni - can you email me recipe? Was going to email ozzie - but, then see she was 40wks, and thought she just might have something else happening right about now....
    But, it sounds tasty. Do you think it would be ok for freezing as well?
    my email is [email protected]
    Thanks

    you know what i can never successfully make - lasagne, and potatoe bake. They never ever ever turn out right.
    I look forward to not working, and being able to plan meals better, and try new stuff.
