Best Brownie Recipe

As far as sweet treats go there is nothing better than a good chocolatey brownie!

Julia’s DD Miss 14 has been treating her friends by taking these to school…

Zucchini Slice

  • Posted on October 27, 2011 at 12:50 PM

Miss 11 decided that she would cook dinner one night this week. This was a win-win situation for her and me. If Miss 11 cooked it would count as part of this week’s homework. It also meant that I did not have to and on that particular night I was a bit stuck for inspiration. It turned out that we had all the ingredients for Zucchini Slice and that is what she decided to make…

Now that it is school holidays, some more treats can make it onto the menu. Caramel sauce is a delicious addition to dessert. Julia’s DD’s enjoy caramel sauce over ice cream… Try it and you will not buy caramel topping or sauce again!

Oreo Ice Cream Cake

This is a really good alterative to a baked cake.

Miss 10 was turning 11 so I decided to make a cake. Miss 10 said ‘Aunty Row I don’t really like cake’ and I said ‘I bet you will like this one’!

This is really easy to make and looks very impressive.

An easy treat that everyone loves! These can be made by children with a bit of help. Handy to take to ‘bring a plate functions’ for children and teenagers.

Bistro Style Salad for 2

  • Posted on October 21, 2010 at 6:54 AM

Often when Rowena makes a toasted sandwich or omelette she will make what she calls a bistro style side salad. It is a good idea to keep salad ingredients on hand in the fridge for lunches and dinner.

Easy Microwave Cheese Sauce

  • Posted on October 3, 2010 at 4:34 PM

Cheese sauce is an essential recipe to learn for any budding chef, teen or otherwise. It can form the basis for many different meals. It can be served over steamed vegetables or used to jazz up leftovers to make a new mornay dish.

Anyone who likes cheese sauce should learn to make it in the microwave instead of on the stove top.

Pikelets are another old-fashioned homemade treat loved by everyone.

Rowena was at a friend’s house recently and her friend made pikelets for afternoon tea.

Rowena remembers fondly that she used to love pikelets as a child and they are so easy to make.
