Slow Cooker Chinese Chicken Curry

Slow Cooker Chinese Chicken Curry

This Slow Cooker Chinese Chicken Curry was utterly delicious. It's not too hot, so the kids could to enjoy it and I could leave it going in the slow cooker all afternoon, filling my house with a yummy smell. We were hungry by tea time that's for sure. I served it with some basmati rice and poppadoms.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better!

It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
