Homemade Apple Slice

Baked apple slice

For a cold night I wanted a warm dessert. This recipe serves 4 ramekins. Add low fat or lactose free Yogurt with it as a creamy element instead of cream or ice-cream.










2 Red Apples thinly sliced

1/4 jar apple sauce or puree

2 egg yolks organic free range

2 cups organic flour

2Tb Brown Sugar

15g Butter


Preheat oven 180*C Fan Forced Oven

Mix all ingredients together in mixing bowl with wooden spoon.

Divide evenly between 4 ramekins.
Bake for 30min or until skewer comes out clean.

Stir Fry Vegepod Vegetables

Bulgogi beef and pork with vegepod tatsoi, garden fresh broccolini and coriander from herb pot

I had some pulled pork and beef left over from a week ago and added bulgogi marinade to it. I got fresh Tatsoi and broccolini from my garden and coriander from herb pot. I added celery and carrot to make the meal complete. Stir fry for 3minutes until meat is heated through.

Pork Roast with Roasted Vegetables

Roast Pork with Roast Vegetables










I bought a pork shoulder roast and cooked the whole 1.5kg in oven with olive oil, rosemary and lemon zest for 1 1/2 hours. Then rest for 30min before slicing. This made 3 meals for hubby and I. I had 1/3 tonight with roasted parsnip, turnip and carrots which I bought as part of a soup pack (TIP: It’s cheaper for us to purchase a fresh vegetable soup pack to use for roasted vegetables instead of buying them individually as there is only 2 of us to cook for)

I also served it with apple sauce and mint sauce.
