Beef Casserole

The cool weather has really set in now and I have to admit that I rather like it. I like scarves and warm coats, heaters and hot drinks and I really like winter food. It's quite lucky that failsafe food lends itself so well to delicious warm meals. Inspiration can be hard to come by in summer, but not winter, far less thought is required to come up with something that hits the spot. This casserole definitely hit the spot. ~ Failsafe Foodie.

Lamb Roast with a Celery Pesto Crust

Lamb is my favourite meat to roast. Usually I do it au-natural, but this time I decided to make it a little more special. The pear seemed to give the meat a beautiful sweetness and the celery pesto was a perfect touch. Everyone gave it the thumbs up. ~ Domestic Diva   [read more]

Chicken Balls and Noodles in Broth

Dinner tonight needed to be something light,  for my visitors who had already been out for lunch.  But it also needed to fill the frillypantii tummies.  An idea for some sort of Asian style broth was forming...  (not that I know anything about Asian cooking)... where people could choose to go heavy on the broth or heavy on the fixings. Well, this absolutely worked a treat!  I am so pleased with this... the kids all had seconds.  I think most of the grown-ups did as well.  Tonight this served 8 people, along with some tasty bread. ~ Real Failsafe Meals  [read more]

Perfect Waffles – Allergy friendly & delicious

Waffles!!! Need I say more? Everyone in our home, regardless of age, LOVES waffles! I created this recipe by accident, perfect first time, despite just throwing a bit of this & that in. Have made numerous times since & have to say, the BEST thing about this recipe is it makes perfect waffles every time, fluffy inside, crispy outside, super yummy & they don’t stick! Even the gluten-junkie of our family loves them! ~ The Truthful Kitchen.  [read more]

Pear Crumble

This is very easy to make and sometimes I decide to do it at the last stages of meal prep and then have this cooking in the oven while we eat dinner.  Delicious with cream and/or ice cream.  (I hate it when I'm offered a choice... when I want to say "both")  We even had a visitor who adores the traditional apple crumble and didn't even realise this was pear.  Yay. ~ Real Failsafe Meals.  [read more]
