THE ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE SUNDAE

Mum and Dad both loved ice cream, so Mum made a lots of varieties.  She added cherry ripe bars and nuts, chocolate mint bars and a lot flavours to plain ice cream, but I don’t think she ever made this super chocolate one.  Chocolate ice cream, mars bars, milk choc bits, white choc bits and dark chocolate – a chocolate lover’s dream I think.

QUICK SALMON PATE

I confess to liking salmon, whether it’s smoked, baked, grill or even tinned, so that’s probably why I really like this salmon pate.  You need to use red salmon to get a good flavour, that makes it a little more expensive, but it does make a good amount.  As it says it’s quick, easy to make and everyone seems to like it.  Also, leftovers are great on toast this next morning!!!

COCONUT CAKE

When my children were at primary school I helped put together a cookbook as a fundraiser.  The school community were asked to send in contributions and we ended up with lots of great recipes.  The mother who sent this one in added the note about it being a good ‘first baking’ cake and it definitely is.  It’s been made many times in my household by both the kids and me. The added bonus is that it also tastes great.

POTTED MEAT

This is an old recipe of Mum’s that I’ve been making for years.  I originally made it as a spread for toast, but it’s just as good on biscuits with drinks. It used to be a pain to make as you had to put it a mincer, which was messy and took ages, but now you just throw it in the blender. You can make it as chunky or fine as you like, my sister-in-law loves it and I try to remember to make it when she’s coming to stay.

MUM’S PICNIC SLICE

Our family had a great picnic in the park last Sunday and my lovely 7 year old granddaughter and I made a Savoury Luncheon Slice* to share.  On the same page as that recipe is this other slice of Mum’s which is also an old family favourite.  The two us will have to make it for the next picnic.
