COCONUT GINGERBREAD

This is really more of a cake than the usual gingerbread.  It’s the first time I’ve seen coconut added into gingerbread and it should make it lovely and moist.

TOMATO JAM – Two Versions

When I was growing up our backyard in summer always had rows of tomato plants covered with fruit.  Sadly I don’t think that’s the case in backyards any more, but if you do happen to have an abundance of tomatoes you might like to try making either of these two tomato jam recipes.

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.

APPETISER CHICKEN WINGS

I’m usually very lazy and buy marinated chicken wings from the supermarket, but having found this recipe I’m now wondering why.  I especially like the tip about not leaving the wings too long in the marinade because the bought ones obviously have been and are very dark.
