Last week's highlight was definitely the Welsh Rarebit from my Good Housekeeping book. It was so easy but very delicious - made ten thousand times easier if you have an easily cleanable double boiler.
Here is a picture of someone else's - it looked the most like mine. Unfortunately however, I did not make that much.
The books that I'm using this week are Everyday Pasta by Giada De Laurentiis;
and Food Safari Cookbook which is the result of a TV show that I love.
There is a link to Giada's site on the left. If you click here you will be taken to the SBS website and a lot of the Food Safari recipes are there. I'm in love with the Crepe Suzette from the French episodes. We even got a crepe pan for our engagement so I will have to give that one a go. Actually I will do a link for all of Food Safari under Feast on the left so if you like it you don't have to hunt around for this post in the future.
