Lucy, I made this for dinner last night and it was absolutely delicious! Looking forward to my leftovers for lunch today. Thank your Mom for me for coming up with such a great recipe.


I made this for dinner tonight, with some pork and red and green peppers, and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This looks a lovely recipe. I made your carrot cake today - it is wonderful. It's the first one I ever made as I have always been put off by the cream cheese topping. The frosting is lovely, the cake - umm lovely. I've decided that I'm making this to take into work to share for my birthday. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.


That looks very flavoursome Lucy! I made a barbecue sauce today for the first time in years!


this looks lovely! I came from a not well off family too and my mum also used to make amazing food out of literally nothing! she used to make what she called Spanish omelette which was basically anything she had left over, chopped up really small, like peppers, ham, onion, mushroom etc, also frozen peas and some cheese and made what I guess we might now call a tortilla. yum yum!!

ps I like liver actually :-)

I think we could all take a leaf out of our mums books, and probably eat healthily and much more cheaply....but I draw the line at hock, tongue and trotters! mind you I lurve liver.... so long as someone else cooks it and it has to have onions!
Sweet and sour sausages look fantastic and I will definitely give it a go.

Thank you


Looks delicious as was your carrot cake I made it yesterday and your right it was the best homemade recipe, loved the frosting.

Mmm that looks so tasty. I may try that. Thanks!


I am totally going to make this recipe next week--at home AND at work. I wish my kids would eat peppers though. It'll drive me nuts that they pick them out but I will persevere!


I'm gonna try that recipe, it looks and sounds yummy. Isn't funny we never realised how much our mother's did for the family, making ends meet,and that we were all happy and never thinking of themselves, it's really not till your a mum and do the same you realise what they have sacrificed for us. Thanks to mum Kathleen in New Zealand, I love you!


Gosh that's brought back memories. I'm sure my Mum used to make something similar with a sweet and sour kind of sauce with pineapple in it. Must ask her. This sounds really good and so easy to do. Will definitely give it a go.
