RAISIN ‘N’ SESAME POPOVERS

Melbournians are this week celebrating the easing of our 5km travel restriction and after four months are meeting family and friends in parks within their new 25km range. Everywhere you look there are small groups enjoying each other’s company and a picnic lunch. I thought these Popovers could be good to make and take along. It’s been very hard, but well done everyone for getting us through this……

BEEF ROLL-UPS IN CREAMY SAUCE

This another recipe from the Kraft Vegemite booklet. The vegemite is used in the sauce and not in the filling, which means you can add as much or as little as you like. I have doubts myself about using tinned vegetable soup for the sauce and don’t see why you couldn’t use mushroom instead.

PEACH AND PASSIONFRUIT TIRA-MI-SU

We’re still a few months off luscious ripe peaches or nectarines being in season, but I think you could substitute tinned peaches in this recipe if you want to make it now.  Tinned peaches mightn’t be quite as good, but I think you’d still end up with a pretty good tiramisu dessert.

 

MINCE PIES WITH POTATO PEA MASH

I think it’s the potato pea mash that attracts me to this recipe from the Woman’s Day, although I do like a good pie.  I can see a few other uses for the potato pea mash too – topping for a shepherd’s pie, as a side dish and what about fried up with an egg for breakfast??

EASY LEMON COCONUT TART

Years ago I used to make a dessert called Impossible Pie, like this it was a recipe that you mixed everything together and as it cooked the heavier ingredients formed a crust and the top was soft.  It tasted quite good, but wish I’d had this recipe as the addition of lemon would have made it even better.
