Serves approximately 5
So, the other week I asked my Facebook followers what kind of vegetarian pasta dish they’d like to see and they voted for a handmade filled pasta dish. And so I created this Roasted Pumpkin and Ricotta Mezzelune!
Makes approx 10 Breakfast Sausage Patties
Mark here. There’s nothing quite like going to a certain fast food restaurant after a night of fun and ordering a sausage muffin. You know the restaurant, right? I think he used to own a farm (e-i-e-i-o). Well, here in Australia, the breakfast sausage patties are made with beef and they’re great. But in America, they’re made with pork and they’re AMAZING.

Hey, Mark here, back home in the UK there are two big bakery franchises, Cooplands and Greggs. Some things I have been missing are Greggs Steak Bakes and Cooplands cheese straws. So, when we had some leftover rough puff pastry from making the Steak Bakes, I knew just what I wanted to do with it. Read Recipe
Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza Serves Approx: 6 – 8
Makes 2 9inch deep dish pizzas
Who doesn’t love pizza? Chicago’s signature pizza style is quite controversial in the USA, especially among New Yorkers, who may argue that it isn’t a pizza at all. I don’t care what you call it. I think that not only is this a delicious, unique dish, but also think its one of the most deliciously decadent things I’ve ever eaten.
Makes approximately 8-10 servings of Rainbow Swiss Roll
So it occurred to me the other day that I haven’t ever made a Swiss roll. So I included it in a poll vote on my Facebook page and it won! I did some recipe research to gain some inspiration as well as having my followers give me suggestions. This Rainbow Swiss Roll with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting was the end result. The sponge recipe I ended up doing was sooo fluffy, light and delicious with no need to let it cool rolled up in a tea towel!
Makes approximately 10 caramelised banana crepes
While making dinner the other night I noticed my bananas were all going brown. So I thought I’d come up with something different for dessert! And these Caramelised Banana Crepes were the end result. Read Recipe
Cincinnati Style Chilli Recipe Serves 4
Hi everyone, Mark here. Alicia and I love spicy food and I love to make chilli (or chili if you’re American, don’t worry, I wont hold it against you, but you are wrong. Just kidding. Kinda). So, while browsing recipes for a different chilli, I came across something that looked like spaghetti bolognese. When I looked at the recipe, I decided to give it a go. I still remember the first time we made this and it was blow your head off hot! This was when we discovered that apparently American chilli powder actually contains other spices in it so it’s actually not as hot as the rest of the world’s chilli powder which is made out of only dried chilli’s. So if you’re from America and are reading this recipe and thinking “pfft 3tsp of chilli powder?” this is for Australian chilli powder (or other countries whose chilli powder is pure chilli’s) which is 8 times hotter than your chilli powder .
