BEB – Recipe Collector Extraordinaire

I thought I’d share this great photo of my Mum/Beb taken a couple of weeks ago.  She’s 99 in January and still as lovely as ever.

CORN PANCAKES

I don’t remember Mum making these, but she used to  make sweet corn patties which were always one of my favourites.  For those she used sweet corn kernels, for these pancakes you use creamed corn so you’d get a smoother mixture.  I think I’ll give them a try, they sound good.  Convert -10oz can to 310g size.

CHICKEN MOROCCAN-STYLE CASSEROLE

Did you think using chickpeas in a recipe was a new thing?  This Moroccan style casserole from a 1990s, Australian Women’s Weekly supplement Clever Casseroles disproves this.  This recipe is more than 20 years old and a. is Moroccan style and b. uses chickpeas – everything old is new again…….and it even includes a couscous recipe.

CRISPY CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS

The recipe suggests using these chicken drumsticks hot or cold for picnics, but I think you could also make the recipe using chicken wings or chicken tenders and serve them up as party finger food.  The cornflake coating would give them a lovely crunch.

RUM AND RAISIN ICE CREAM

This recipe comes from a 1990s, Australian Women’s Weekly supplement entitled Old Fashioned Family Favourites.  For me, the ‘old fashioned’ ice cream that Mum used to make was one that used an evaporated milk and sugar mixture that was whipped, semi frozen and then rewhipped. To me it always seemed to be very icy, nothing like today’s smooth and creamy version.  I’m inclined to think that this recipe has been ‘modernized’ to use thickened cream so I’m sure it would taste a lot better than the old fashioned version I remember.
