This ice cream is so yummy. Definitely worth the effort. As I know some people would never dream of making their own ice cream, and inform me that Im nuts for making my own lol.

Chicken and Cabbage Stir Fry

cabbage recipes

Now I know this doesn’t look that appetising, especially when its main ingredient is cabbage. BUT its actually really nice. My tip is don’t cook your cabbage for long, leave a little crunch. Unless you like it cooked a little more. I know my mother likes to cook the life out of her cabbage, well I know she used too lol.

I am on a health kick at the moment, and trying to consume 1200 calories per day. I think rabbits consume more than 1200 calories per day, REALLY!

But anyway this is really low in calories.

spinach pie recipes

This recipe really surprised me, I wasn’t going to cook it as I’m really fussy with spinach dishes because I actually don’t like spinach. Well silverbeet anyway, I actually love baby spinach in all my salads.

The best may to describe the taste of silverbeet would be DIRT. lol I hate the stuff. But it is really good for you, so I was really happy to find this recipe and LOVE IT!

This pie has a perfect balance of herbs which takes that silverbeet taste away. Especially the mint, one of my favourite herbs.

Will have to start taking note of this from now on. But then again my sister freaks out if there are more than 4 ingredients lol. But thats another story lol.Continue Reading
