I live on the East Coast of Australia. My interests are cooking, reading, working-out, quilting and patchwork. Having worked most of my working years in the travel industry, I also enjoy travelling. I think BigOven is the best thing to have happened in my kitchen, I have a large family of 6 children and now 5 grandchildren, so I have always looked for economy, organization and cooking without too much effort. My husband and I are adventurious with food. We eat Thai, Tex-Mex, Greek, Spanish and Indian to name but a few.

This recipe is a favourite of our family and has been since the early 80's , when I purchased my first Greek cook book by Tess Mallos. I have made it over and over again for family and friends. 8/31/2009
Dixie Chicken

Dixie Chicken

The whole family enjoyed this recipe. After reading some of the comments I decided to make a few additions to the recipe. I add 1 sliced shallot, 1/3 cup of good sherry, two minced garlic cloves and some black pepper to the sauce. Then added fresh thyme before placing in oven. Served with creamy mashed potato and green vegetables. — belleharris 8/20/2009

This is a keeper. Used low fat evaporated milk instead of the cream and milk, and I soaked the fruit in a bit of sherry for added flavour. Enjoyed by all the family. 8/3/2008

This was a very nice meatloaf. Used garlic and herb flavoured breadcrumbs and added some grated parmesan cheese to the top of the meatloaf when adding the tomato sauce in the last 15 mins of cooking time. — slburke73 9/5/2006
Turkari Palaak Molee

Turkari Palaak Molee

We enjoyed this curry very much. I did not have any fenugreek in the pantry so I substitued 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds and when adding the lamb also added 1 teaspoon of maple syrup. The recipe is very quick to prepare, however, I boned and cut up the leg of lamb, so it did take a little longer. 8/26/2006
