  • Australian Pavlova

    DIRECTIONS1 Place the egg whites in a small mixing bowl and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, draw a 10 inch circle on a piece of wax paper and place (writing-side down) on a baking sheet. Variation: Draw 10 four inch circles on the wax paper for individual bases.

    2 Add vanilla and cream of tartar to egg whites. Beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed until very stiff peaks form and sugar is almost dissolved (about 5 minutes). Using the back of a spoon, spread meringue onto the circle, building the sides up to form a bowl.

    3 Bake in a 300F oven for 35 minutes. Turn off the oven and let shell dry in the oven, with the door closed for one hour. Remove the shell from baking sheet and pull off wax paper. Store in an airtight container.

    4 Traditional filling is simply fresh fruit of your choice and whipped cream and topped with fruit sauce. Another good one is ice cream, nuts, fruit and sauce (banana split).


    2 egg whites

    3/4 teaspoon vanilla

    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

    2/3 cup sugar (or less, to taste)


    Fresh fruit (your choice)

    Whipping cream






    While the burgers are cooking, BBQ the bacon and pineapple. Top the burgers with bacon, then add cheese and put back on the barbecue to melt. Warm the buns over the barbecue, too, if you like.

    Meanwhile, heat oil in a 10 nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add eggs; cook, covered, until yolks are just set, about 4 minutes. To bottom half of each bun, add lettuce, beets, tomato, pineapple, and burger patty.

    Top each with an egg; add top half of bun.


    Fried Egg

    Crock-Pot CocktailsHOLIDAY FAVOURITES

    With i t est imated that over 70% of al l households own a least one s l ow cooke r, i t s i n c r ed i b l e j u s t how l i t t le is know about i t s or igins and the man behind this cherished kitchen staple. On May 21st, 1936, I r v ing Naxon, a l i fe long inventor, from Chicago, I l l inois, appl ied for a patent on a cooking device that was inspired by his grandmothers recipe for a slow cooked cholent or Jewish Meat Stew.

    His grandmother used to cook the stew in a pot over night in a bakery oven when it was turned off and so Irving was trying to create a device

    tha t wou ld emula te the low and slow cooking style that made his grandmothers dish so del icious.

    I r v i n g , b r o u g h t h i s N a x o n Beanery all purpose cooking device to market in the early 1950s, where i t quickly found favor with women r u n n i n g b u s y h o l d s a n d t a k i n g o n m o r e j o b s i n t h e w o r k f o r c e outside the home. In 1970, the Rival Manufacturing Company bought the company and in 1971, rebranded the Naxon Beanery, to the Crock Pot in 1972, as they launched the product with a removable stoneware insert that could be removed and served

    from at the table.The Crock-pot has been a beloved

    kitchen appl iance for over 60 years with only a small decl ine in sales in the early 1980s when the microwave oven was the newest must-have device. Today, the crock-pot is as popular as ever with famous chefs around the world touting i ts praises and versatil ity, so that we once again see a new generat ion of loyal and happy cookers who have a crock-pot sit t ing on their counter and with a bit of easy planning come home to a del icious home cooked meal at the end of long day.
