Slow cooked massaman curry with lamb shanks Dine in

This is the ultimate slow cook dish for winter – lamb again, I know… but it’s a lovely twist on a more traditional beef massaman curry. Massaman curries are not as spicy as traditional Thai curries can be, but it’s still full of flavour and delicious. There are plenty of recipes for home made spice pastes around and when I have the time I love to make my own. However, sometimes I just want to rely on a good curry to save time, but not compromise on flavour! Maesri make heaps of different varieties of curry paste and they are...

Greek lamb and lemon potatoes Dine in

Butter soft lamb served with lemony garlic potatoes. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, it should be! I have made these recipes a couple of times now and I recommend you find an occasion to serve it yourself. Soon! I make both the lamb and potatoes the night before so on the day of the dinner I just need to remove them from the fridge and then put them in the oven. So easy! So good! Served with a greek salad or greens and you have a super delicious dinner… so good there probably won’t be leftovers. Greek lamb Ingredients 1...

Showdown mushroom omelette Dine in

Cooking omelettes have traditionally been Stu’s domain as one thing he offers to do for me (in addition to always asking me if I want floss when once a week he heads upstairs at 8.30pm to grab said floss so he can multitask while watching GoT). Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of Stu’s omelettes as they always have absolutely everything he can find in the fridge. Bacon, spinach, mushroom, capsicum, cheese, tomatoes plus a huge number of eggs to bind it all together. It ends up being a massive egg stew (!) on my plate which I have no hope of finishing. We usually...

Guilt free lemon and poppy seed cake Dine in

I love baking with butter… and sugar… and white flour. Pretty controversial! I’m sure the gluten/dairy/egg/sugar free concoctions taste OK and I get that some people have genuine allergies which need to be seriously considered. However, for the same reason I don’t call spiralized zucchini “pasta” (it’s grated zucchini) or cauliflower rice “rice” (it’s blitzed cauliflower) I don’t do baking without the good “bad” stuff. Food wasn’t always demonised and labelled and people weren’t always made to feel guilty for eating what they enjoy. When my parents were growing up you ate what you were given and what you were given was...

Beef gratin with roasted cauliflower Dine in

Slow cooking in the oven is one of the easiest ways to cook and the extended time in the oven results in butter soft meat and complex flavours. This casserole is a winner and with only a few ingredients and minimal preparation, you can let your oven do most of the work. The red wine matters – I’m not suggesting you buy a $40 bottle to tip into your casserole but equally don’t think a cask of Stanley’s “red” wine will do the trick either. The wine will either flavour or ruin your dinner so if you would drink it...
