Some of my favourite cooking websites that I use regularly

Hi fellow home cooks,

I would like to share with you all a few of my favourite cooking websites that I use regularly.

The one I probably use the most would have to be http://allrecipes.com.au/
I find the recipes in it are really simple to follow both for myself and my children.  The ingredients required are well known and are easy to find in your local supermarket. 

For instance if I have chicken wings in my fridge, I go to the all recipes page and type in chicken wings into their search bar.  After clicking on the search icon (which looks like a magnifying glass), it brings up all the different types of recipes I can make using chicken wings.

When I placed chicken wings into the search bar it brought up 56 search results with chicken wings.  I personally like looking at the pictures to see what looks yummy.  Recipes with pictures are so much more appealing to the eye.

One of the recipes I use quite often off that site is Sticky Soy and Honey Chicken Wings.  It is one of my families favourites.

Here is the recipe if you would like to make it yourself.

  1. On the barbecue: Cut chicken wings into 24 pieces and discard the tips. Combine all other ingredients and marinate for an hour.
  2. Cook on the barbecue plate on medium heat, turning once till they are cooked to your preference.
  3. To bake in the oven: Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  4. Place chicken wings (prepared as above) in a baking tray. Combine all other ingredients and pour over the wings and bake (turning the wings after 20 minutes) for 40-50 minutes until the liquid has gone sticky and thick.

 Happy Cooking!

I will be back soon to tantalise your tastebuds with another yummy recipe and website to use.

P.S. For those of you who were wondering about the 'slight hiccup' to my Donna Hay's Chocolate Panna Cotta. I used a plastic cup as my setting mould and what I did not realise at the time, the cups had writing on the bottom of them.  When I took the Panna Cotta's out of their mould's, it left some writing including the words 250ml (the cup size) on the now top of my dessert.  Like I said in my last post, nothing a little whipped cream couldn't fix, but I won't make that mistake again in a hurry!
