PEARS BAKED IN CIDER

I really like the sound of this baked pear dessert.  The combination of pears, fruit and nuts, cream and creme fraiche – not forgetting the cider – is quite appealing.  It’s probably more a cool weather dessert, although maybe it would work served chilled on a warm night.

This is a favourite lamb casserole of mine, I’ve been making for years.  The curry powder, ginger and sauces work really well together with the lamb and the pumpkin.  It’s very tasty combination.

VEGETABLE & ALMOND CASSEROLE

Vegetarian recipes weren’t something Mum would have been looking for on the pages of the Herald Sun.  Growing up I can’t remember anyone among our family or friends who didn’t eat meat, so cooking vegetable only dishes just wasn’t necessary.  This recipe is on a page Mum kept from the paper that had pork, lamb, sausage and fish casseroles on it, so the recipes were around, they just weren’t something Mum made.
