I make a pretty awesome red beans and rice. FH would say that my red velvet cake is second only to his mom’s, which is saying something.

Ok not my recipe but my husband’s ham.  We have been requested to make it for Easter every year.  It’s really good (canned ham, brown sugar, 7-up).  And my tortilla soup with homemade strips.

I made my first homemade chicken noodle soup last week, boiled whole chicken and all 🙂

@SpecialSundae:  So my friend tells me the mincemeat cupcakes is from Mary Berry’s cupcake recipe book – and they’re mixed in.  She makes a cream cheese topping with Philadelphia as well.  They are lush!

We’re a Low-Fat household, so I’ve had to take a lot of dishes and suit them to a healthier lifestyle.  And I don’t really have a name for them or a recipe, I usually just cook from my gut.

The ones that I get the highest acclaim for is shrimp/spinach/artichoke stuffed shells, Shepherd’s Pie, Super Low Fat Chicken Parmesean, Stuffed Green Peppers, and this stuff my mom calls Slumgullion.  I dunno what Slumgullion actually is, but it’s really awesome, mom says it was called “frenc hunter’s stew” but for the life of me, I can’t find any recipe out in the known world that is anything like it.  It’s a very strange recipe but delicious.

My FH is has become quite the chef too.  He specializes in grilled burgers (but he won’t tell me his secret) roast beef burritos, Alfredo Nachos, and this stuff called Flora Rosa – also, can’t find it’s real name or a recipe, but he got a ingredients list from the cook at the only restaurant we know that makes it.

uggggh!  Now I’m hungry.

I make a good blue cheese cauliflower cheese.

Unfortunately the ingredients are so expensive here, that last time I made it (last thanksgiving – as the non-American I can make whatever I please!), I made a version with three small heads of cauliflower and it cost over $40 US

The dish I make that always leaves people coming back for more is my colorful mashed potatoes with sea salt, goat cheese, black truffle oil, and rosemary. 

It has taken me all year to perfect this recipe, and Fiance loooves it. Goes great with tuna, chicken, steak, pork, pretty much everything, and sometimes I use so many little purple potatoes that the whole batch turns out dark purple!

The purple looks a bit weird (I think it is pretty but I could see a traditionalist turning up their nose at the color), but the flavor makes up for it in spades!

So there you go, toot toot!

@Miss Archer:  I do it in the slow-cooker and it’s a minor footer, but it’s scrummy.


  • about 1kg oxtail
  • 3 large carrots, cut into small (5mm) dice
  • 2 large onions, cut into small (5mm) dice
  • 3 large celery stalks, cut into small (5mm) dice
  • 2x 400g cans of tomatoes
  • 250ml wine
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Put all ingredients into the slow cooker
  2. Put on low and cook for 8 hours or overnight
  3. Leave to cool, pick out all the oxtail and remove the meat
  4. Return the meat to the pot and season to taste
  5. Reheat as required (or use to make a kick ass lasagna).
