Grandma’s Brandy Snaps


I have no idea exactly how much goodness is in these crunchy little numbers, but on a scale of one to 100 it surely must be soaring well into the single digits.

Also, there is no brandy used in the recipe so can only assume it must be sipped while making them. At least, that’s the road I took.

Grandma’s Chicken Liver Pate


This recipe is so easy Master7 did everything except the cleaning of the soaked livers. Of course, he thinks he’s ready for Masterchef now.

WARNING. You make this once, you’ll make it a hundred times. Furthermore, you will waste a bucket of cash buying and trying store bought pates and throwing them out after the first taste because they will be horrid and unstomachable compared to the one you now make yourself.

This is not a joke. I’m being serious. You have been warned. Proceed at your own risk.

But also, it’s worth it 🙂

Grandma’s Vanilla Slice


Growing up, these were the slices I asked Mum to make whenever the housework was done and she looked like she was ready to sit down and relax.

These days I feel sorry for her, but back then I just assumed the thing she loved most in the world was making me happy and not having a moment to herself.
