HOT ‘n’ SPICY POTATO SALAD

Although the heading on this recipe suggests serving it with grilled fish, roasted chicken, marinated chops or a mild beef curry, I think it would be a great accompaniment to  Christmas leftovers.  A touch of spice to go with turkey, pork or ham.

MANGO RICE CREAM

The two big desserts when I was growing up were – Baked Custard and Creamed Rice.  My father hated creamed rice, so Mum certainly never made this recipe.  Can’t say I’m a great fan of it myself, but I think adding mangoes, whipped cream and meringues definitely makes it more appealing.

CREAMY BAKED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

Are you looking for a more interesting way to serve brussels sprouts?  My childhood memory of this poor vegetable was a greenish/yellowish soggy mess on the plate – my husband still won’t eat them because his lovely Mum cooked them in the pressure cooker!!!!  Of course, there’s no need to boil the life out of them, you can steam them, fry them, bbq them and even bake them in cream with parmesan cheese and walnuts as this recipe suggests.

CHICKEN COOKED IN CIDER

A couple of years ago my youngest son had a great holiday in Tasmania and came back with several bottles of a new cider he’d discovered – Pagan Cider.  Since then we always have a few bottles in the fridge, one of which I’m now going to use to try this chicken recipe – guess I’d better make it when he’s coming for dinner.
