Some Basic Cooking...

Yesterday, my sister and I had morning tea at Mum's, it's nice to get together and talk craft and have a show and tell session. Mum had made her  Date Loaf and Jane had taken a plate of her biccies...ones that she makes all the time and always telling me about from the 4 Ingredients cookbook. And for biscuits that only have 4 ingredients they really are yum!! I was so impressed with the biscuits I went home and made some  too!   


The recipe is called Basic Biscuits...with 500g butter, 5 cups SR Flour, 1 Cup sugar and one tin condensed milk. To this basic mixture you can add Choc bits, smarties, sultanas, cornflakes etc

and what I also love is that it makes a decent quantity!! I made 60 plus biscuits

This is the Spaghetti Bolognese which we had for tea last night...I added bacon and snuck in some carrots just for the kids(lol) but it was really nice! The bacon adds quite a nice flavour. The other ingredients was just 1 kg mince, large diced onion, 1 tspn minced garlic, large can crushed tomatoes, 200g tomato paste, salt and pepper and a bay leaf...served with parmesan cheese

I do like to try different recipes, but I always find that most recipes require ingredients that you need to purchase from specialty stores(and cost a fortune)...and sometimes I haven't even heard of  before! 

I would love it if anyone would like to share their favourite 'basic' recipe.

Bye For Now

Glad the biscuits turned out well for you...I love that it makes a large quantity & lasts a couple of days.

I think Shez & I should come as a package deal Lisa. We won't take up much room & you will always have someone to sew with (& who appreciates your cooking!). I hope Shez is happy with the top bunk... Tracee xx
