Recipes the World Forgot-The Easy Edition

Tuesday, 21 January 2020
Hello Dear Reader,

Today I am taking a leaf out of Mel from "Mel's Kitchen Cafe" book and looking back into the archives of my little blog to find some gold, in the form of old recipes that are now up to 3 years old and are in danger of being overlooked.

I thought I would dive in and find you 10 great little easy recipes that are among my favourites but may have not had an outing in a while. Today I will present 10 easy dinners that made my heart sing way back when, starting with this little beauty-

Easy Pork Larb

Easy Golden Chicken Curry

Easy Chicken and Mushroom Casserole 

Easy Roast Pumpkin and Chorizo Frittata Slice

Lentil, Pumpkin and Cashew Curry 

I loved looking back at the recipes I have shared over the years, it's funny but most of them have a really lovely story attached that still resonates with me today, for instance the above curry was made with the most gorgeously yellow pumpkin we bought on our way back home from visiting our Daughter and her Fiancé in Cairns back in 2017. A lovely gentleman had set up a little stall in a well know beach side rest area selling homegrown fruit and veg, he told us that the money from the pumpkins went into a little bank account for his grandchildren, a shop bought pumpkin doesn't have a story like that!

And the Simple Salmon, Potato and Sweet Corn Chowder was from a fabulous little recipe book I bought when we went to Alaska for our 30th Wedding Anniversary, I never buy useless trinkets to remember a holiday, a recipe book from the area or a tea towel suits me so much better.

Have a lovely day,

Two Years Ago-Sunny Side Up Sunday
Three Years Ago-Easy Asian Beef
Four Years Ago-Curried Mince


  1. I've just watched your videos on how to cook asian greens as they always look so lovely in your photos. What oil do you use and how much would you have put in your big pot to cook your asian greens? Kathy A, Brisbane

    1. Hi Kathy,
      I use rice bran oil for everything and it also handles high heat well, I probably use about 2 tablespoons of oil in the big pot, I’ve never measured it though. High heat and a fair bit of oil makes the veggie so delicious.

  2. I must have been following you for a while Fiona, I recognise almost all of those recipes LOL

    Thanks for this post, it has given me some ideas for my menu plan next week 👍🏼

  3. Hi Cheryl,
    They’re oldies but goodies❤️Hope your day is lovely, Fi

  4. You've got some beauties here - I will try the meatloaf recipe, always good to have another way to cook mince. Your meatloaf looks more interesting than many meatloaf recipes.

    1. Hi Penny,
      It’s a great little recipe, I’m going to make it to take away camping with us, it’ll be great for dinner with salad and then sliced thickly on a roll for lunch, yum! Fi

  5. Hi Fiona,

    thank you for the reminder regarding these recipes. I have made some of them and the Easy Asian Beef with Noodles is a family favourite now.

    I would like to make the Easy Golden Chicken Curry but can't access the post where you made the actual Golden Curry Paste. When I use the link in the Golden Chicken Curry post it says, "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist."
    Hope you can help.

    Best wishes, Maria xx.

    1. Hi Maria,
      Thanks for the heads up, I’ll try and rectify the link now, have a lovely day, Fi

  6. Hi Maria,
    I've just looked and you're right, it isn't there, I may have accidentally deleted it when I cleaned up all the duplicate post late last year. I will try and hunt down the recipe and re-post it for you.

  7. Thanks Fiona.

    Looking forward to making it.
