Pizza as good as Dominos??

If you're like me and you love anchovy on pizza, you'll like the picture above.  Make your own pizza base and top it with meet galore! Olives, cheese and then a fan of anchovies!!

15 minutes in a hot oven and you're sorted.

Meat Pie from last night's BBQ leftovers

We had a BBQ at my sister's place a few nights back and invariably this always gives us lots of letovers.  Sausages, pork chops and steaks.
So the next day I was up early and made my own puff pastry.  My idea was to cut all the meat up small, combine them with onions, mushrooms and beef stock and make a pie filling with grated cheese that would put the leftovers to good use.   
It worked a treat!!

No Hot Cross Buns this Easter

 Had some fun making cinnamon rolls yesterday.  The yeast here in Home Hill works so well giving a really light and airy cinnamon roll.

Happy Easter!!

Strawberry and Kiwi fruit Pavlova

Made this fabulous pavlova last weekend.  Enjoying making desserts and other dishes in my mum's kitchen during my holidays.

Strawberries were sweet, kiwi fruit was a little disappointing. But the colour is fantastic and the pavlova was great.
