1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: help? what sorts of candies/foods are unique to the US? on: March 25, 2009 09:06:22 PM
We have picnics and jaffa cakes in the UK, but I think they originated in Australia?  Please correct me if I'm wrong.  I'm really intrigued by the pollywaffles - what are they?!!

Our jaffas are different to jaffa cakes. Jaffas are balls of chocolate coated in an orange candy coating so they're like jumbo sized m&m's with a chocolate orange flavour. I want jaffas now...

Also, pollywaffles are wafer tubes with marshmallow in them and covered with chocolate.

Do you find it hard to say no to people who request things? Or do you just see a pattern/design a pattern that you think someone else will really like? I haven't knitted a lot of stuff for myself because I am too busy knitting things for other people.

This year I have decided that I will just focus on finishing the jumper I started (last year, eep!) and some other wintery things (which is fast approaching in this hemisphere).

I made this a while ago too. I agree - it needs to be more chocolately. Perhaps nutella in the middle or something? Or choc chips? Then again, nutella straight from the jar would still be more chocolatey Cheesy But yes, it's good for when you're craving chocolate and there's none around!
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Roasted Brussels Sprouts---No, really! on: March 05, 2009 02:10:07 AM
Roasted brussels sprouts are great, we always have them with the Sunday roast.

Though, if we don't roast them we steam them and mash them. Once they're mashed you could put butter and salt and pepper through the sprouts or, my favourite, lemon juice and salt and pepper.

I like to do a knit stitch at the end of every row. It looks much nicer!
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: I finally resolved to buy proper kitchen implements on: December 05, 2008 01:07:53 AM
Saving up and buying the best is very smart. It'll probably work out more economical because you're less likely to have to replace it over the years.

I have a Le Creuset, which is excellent and well worth the money spent.  It's not so compatible with the electric stovetop at my home though Sad (I rent, so i have no choice) but you can use it in the oven as well as the stove so that's a bonus.

I also bought one Wusthof knife because a whole set was too much but one is better than none!
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Israeli Couscous on: October 24, 2008 03:53:10 AM
I've only ever had Israeli couscous with things like stews. It was nice with a winter vegie tagine and some labne.

As a salad, I've seen it mixed in with lots of parsley - kind of a warm tabbouleh-type dish. I haven't made that myself though but it seemed like a good idea!

I made an apple cake once and the recipe called for a 20cm ring pan. I didn't have a ring pan but I had a 20cm regular pan which I figured wouldn't be a problem cause it would fit more mix in.


The recipe book had a typo. They meant 28cm pan. There was an apple cake volcano in my oven, with apple cake lava glooping out of the pan! It was a monstrosity. It was in there for an hour but still didn't completely cook in the middle...

At least the rest of it tasted good!
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: canned lychee???? on: October 02, 2008 03:18:00 AM
I love lychees! I like to make a salad out of them. After you've chilled them in the fridge mix them around with some chopped mint and passionfruit pulp. It's very refreshing on a hot day.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: chicken viking hat! (pattern too) on: September 02, 2008 03:52:03 AM
Hahahaha! That's the funniest hat I've seen. I should make one but I dunno where I'd wear it... not a chicken farm though, that would be mean.
