To be honest I don’t think this is particularly ‘tropical’, but it still sounds good. It’s really just an apple crumble with bananas, coconut and pecans – does that make it tropical, I leave it to you to decide……..
Pork is a great barbecued. We usually just marinade it, but this recipe goes a step further by wrapping the marinades pieces in foil and adding potatoes and chutney. I don’t think it really matters which cut of pork you use and if you don’t want to barbecue you can always cook it in the oven.
The heading on this New Idea segment says ‘the perfect breakfast treat”, but I’m pretty sure my granddaughters would like them in their lunchbox and I wouldn’t mind them for afternoon tea.
This recipe sent me off googling ‘apple brandy’ as I thought sprinkling that instead of straight brandy on to the fruit might give it an extra kick.

This recipe comes from a Women’s Weekly segment entitled ‘Make-ahead Meatballs’. As it says it can be made the day before you need it and that can be really useful if you have a lot of people to cater for. I also think the corn chips and sour cream make it a winner!
I’m a great believer in having as much cooking as possible done before the visitors arrive. This recipe was printed as part of ‘Do-ahead Dinner Party” menu and is a great idea. An easy to make overnight marinade, then a quick grill while the visitors are having a drink ………and ……… entree is served.
