Ox Tongue (Lengua) with Mushroom Sauce

Whenever we get the chance, our family goes to either Darra or Inala, both suburbs of which are known for Asian shops and delis.  On the last occasion that we were in Inala, we were in a meat shop recommended by our delightful couple friends Pinky and Keith and we decided we haven’t had ox tongue …

Easy Barbecued Pork Chops

Today’s news that caught my eye: Pope Francis speaks up about gay rights. 10 year old girl catches baby thrown from a burning home. The other news aren’t as interesting for me today, or they are too scary for me to dwell on. ANYWAY, I am posting one of my recipes that my husband loves.  It …

Mini Cinnamon Rolls (a note was added on 16 Oct 2013 re eggs)

I was thinking what I would make for the church’s Sunday morning tea and thought I would try a recipe I found in the net.  I just made my own adjustments and the rolls came out perfect 🙂 Ingredients for the rolls: 2 3/4 cups plain flour, divided into 2 1/4 and 1/2 cups 3 …
