the fast lane

Last night was Taco Thursday at our house; I know it’s traditionally on a Tuesday but we do Chicken Tuesday… Anyway, I got home late and didn’t have enough time to make tacos. Really, I should have made one of the three 30-minute cover dishes (p16) but my family are creatures of habit and my recipe ain’t ready in half an hour. Sigh. So it was baked beans and eggs for the kids, and nothing for me as I really wasn’t that hungry. And then a short time later I was. Feeling inspired by Claire’s smart 10 pasta sauces in 10 minutes (p24), I set about creating an off-the-cuff dinner, something I really shouldn’t attempt at the best of times, and when I’m tired and hungry it’s definitely not the best…

Tim Tam fan I am completely hooked on the Chewy Tim Tam Brownies (April 2015, p84)! I have tried lots of variations using different Tim Tam flavours and they all turned out beautifully — here’s the salted caramel version. Angie Gray, via email COOK THE COVER My 10-year-old son recently saw your magazine at the supermarket and asked me to buy it as he loved the look of your August cover recipe — One Pan Sticky Chicken and ‘Fried’ Rice (p18). He said ‘Mum, buy me the magazine and the ingredients, I want to cook dinner for you all!’ He made it and the Bacon-wrapped Meatloaf (p45). They were both a hit. Because of SFI he has found a new enthusiasm for cooking and every weekend he picks a dish from your magazine to…

tips and tricks from the test kitchen

Kim says: Find out our favourite supermarket shortcuts and the kitchen gadgets on our wish list. Plus, some BTS action FAST LANE So long slow cooking! These are our favourite supermarket products that help get dinner ready in a flash. Pre-cooked microwave rice: Ready in less than 3 minutes, this rice is perfect with a quick stir-fry. Marinated meats: When there's no time to marinate meat overnight, let the supermarket do it for you! Seasoning blends: Great for coating chicken, beef or lamb, or sprinkling on roasted or barbecued vegies, these prepared herb and spice blends add flavour fast. Frozen vegetables: Just as nutritious as fresh vegies, frozen vegies are blanched and pre-cut or prepped, saving you heaps of time. Frozen puff pastry: Save on time and elbow grease – just make sure you pull it out…

behind the scenes

1 Art director, Sarah, was whisked away to Western Sydney Parklands by Stoneleigh Wild Valley wines to learn all about foraging for food and sample a few wild fermented wines. Tough gig? 2 If you can’t decide which of our barbie sides (p61) to try first, just follow our cue and cook them all! This picture certainly proves sides can be the main attraction. 3 We were treated to a pre-Christmas feast thanks to Woolworths. There were all the usual suspects, from prawns to mince pies, as well as the infamous turducken! This glorious glazed ham went down a treat. 4 Doughnut on top of a milkshake? That’s so last month! The new dessert trend taking Instagram by storm is dessert coconuts. Cronut coconut, anyone? 5 A sticky date layer cake with luscious caramel…
