My always-on-hand ingredients are frozen peas and broad beans, parmesan, canned chickpeas, fetta, lemon, extra virgin olive oil, bacon and eggs. The peas frozen together in one big lump usually require a bashing and the parmesan has matured for the worse (maybe I should have wrapped it a bit more securely), but nonetheless they’re all there.

Kylie Scrown, via email LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTER I was able to share my joy of cooking with my two-year-old daughter when together we made the Ham, Cheese and Pineapple Scrolls and the Cheesy Vegemite Scrolls (p26) from the Jan/Feb issue.
