CHOC-MINT CAKES

I’m not sure why this has “For Kids” on the tag, why should just the kids have them?  Maybe it’s the suggestion that you add green food colouring into the peppermint flavoured cream, personally think I’d leave it out…………

ORANGE LIQUEUR FLAN

Unfortunately back in the 80s my father had heart problems which resulted in major surgery.  To aid his recovery Mum went to post op classes with him and changed their diet.  Becel polyunsaturated table margarine was one of those changes and this recipe comes from their cookbook Taste for Life.

EGG DROP SOUP – STRACCIATELLA

I always thought this soup was made with pasta, but obviously I was completely wrong.  Mum seems to have cut this from her bowls magazine back in the 80s, the reverse side has bowling results and an In Remembrance list of members who’d passed away.  Maybe like Mum they live on through their recipes too.

CHEESY VEGETABLE CHOWDER

I can’t decide if this is a chowder or a minestrone soup with lots of cheese.  For some strange reason it reminds me of a soup Mum used to make with grated onion, carrot, celery and chicken noodle soup which she covered with water and when cooked added some milk to – don’t think there was ever a recipe for it, but it was one of my favorites especially when I was sick.
