    easy to prepare, tasted excellent  -  07 Jul 2011


    Menu-Starter:- Foolproof Cheese Souffle for Dummies - fantastic and so easy, dinner guests asked for seconds, good job i made extra, added chopped chorizo and some paprika to make it a Hungarian twist to it. Mains :- Slower Cooker Hungarian Goulash - yummy added extra paprika and some peppers, so tasty and simple to prep, served with olive bread, buttered pasta and sauted courgettes with garlic. Pud - Choc Chestnut Cake, decadent and so rich, used half Cadbury dairy milk choc. I LOVE THIS WEBSITE xxxx  -  16 Feb 2014


    The first attempt I liked it but had used tomato sauce instead of ketchup and found it tasted too much of tomatoes and also too sweet and salty. Second attempt - I used ketchup, left out the sugar and reduced the salt by half. I also replaced the water with beef stock and added green peppers, also including a little garlic salt. With these changes I am well impressed with the result and so was my son - really tasty and will certainly be on the menu on a regular basis.  -  10 Mar 2015
