katya_d I don't buy biscuits very often but found myself unable to walk past salted caramel monte Carlos or strawberries and cream shortbread creams 8h
  •   donnagow Omfg 7h
  •   _kezm Thanks for sharing I grabbed the strawberry and cream shortbread, will share hubby's verdict. @k_spruce let us know what you think of the salted caramel monte carlos. 6h
  •   thimbleandpurl I tried the monte Carlos and was disappointed. The cream was really hard, the biscuit was hard and I struggled to find any hint of salted caramel, just a flavored buttercream. 6h
  •   my_foodtrail Oh disappointing @phillo! I bought the salted caramel Monte Carlos but haven't tried them yet 6h
  •   pogger1510 Got both of these last night! The strawberry cremes are quite good. Haven't tried the monte Carlos yet. 2h
  •   katya_d @pogger1510 @my_foodtrail @donnagow @phillo @thimbleandpurl The boys gave the salted caramel monte Carlos a rave review 29min
  •   phillo Now you need to try one and advise on your thoughts of the biscuit @katya_d 16min

katya_d Time for a piece or two of apple streusel slice 4d

katya_d Apple streusel slice. A good use for the apples that are always left at the bottom of our fruit bowl because they've gone a bit soft 5d
  •   fatjansdodgyphotos We have that problem with pears. Also a broken oven. That issue aside, do you think pear streusel slice would work? 5d
  •   katya_d @fatjansdodgyphotos I think pears would be sensational with it. The actual recipe was for rhubarb and apple but I didn't have any rhubarb, and had loads of soft apples that were being shunned by the family 5d
  •   donnagow Streusel? Is that different to strudel? 5d
  •   katya_d @donnagow yes - you make a dough of butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon, pop it in the fridge them grate it over whatever you've made - cake, slice etc 5d
  •   donnagow Wow that sounds amazing 5d
  •   katya_d @donnagow In this instance it's a shortbread base, apples strewed with honey then the streusel 5d

katya_d Rye, honey and 4 seed rolls out of the oven and ready to be gobbled up 1w

katya_d I'm making rye, honey and 4-seed rolls to go with tonight's cauliflower and sweet potato soup. But as I had a wisdom tooth removed this afternoon I'll just be sticking with the soup 1w
  •   katya_d @ebbye thanks - at the moment the local anaesthetic is still in effect. I have the nurofen ready for when it wears off! 1w
  •   ebbye Ouch! I have to say though, sweet potato ( or pea) is the perfect choice! Feel better soon 1w
  •   katya_d @sweepea not long at all - I may post the recipe soon, so you can assess its toddler-friendliness. Basically mix the dough, let prove for an hour, roll into balls and let probe again while you're waiting for the oven to heat up 1w
  •   sweepea Which place did you end getting the cauliflower from? 7d
  •   katya_d Coles - same price as the market 7d
  •   eggweena I hope you are feeling ok after having your tooth pulled @katya_d 7d
  •   katya_d @eggweena thanks - all ok but am taking lots of neurofen to work just in case :-) At least I didn't have all 4 like poor old you! 6d
  •   kerriegrant Ouch! Feel better soon. 6d

katya_d Who'd have thought cauliflower would be a luxury item? $7 seems pretty pricey to me 1w
  •   australiancraig $4.98 at Aldi 1w
  •   katya_d @sweepea funnily enough was at Box Hill today too! As you say, same price in market bit as at Coles 1w
  •   katya_d @msnaut oh! Well that would explain it! 1w
  •   smartarsewabbit Yep, there's a shortage at the moment 1w
  •   injera Jeepers 1w
  •   thekatthatgotthecream They were the same price at Woolworths as couple of weeks ago. I had to look twice! 1w
  •   macroajit It is! Not fair :( 1w
  •   bossco99 Its crazy, they were $6, then $1, now $! I will buy them because I love them 7d

katya_d Choc chip Anzac bikkies. I hope the addition of the chocolate doesn't mean I'm adding to the Disneyfication of Anzac Day as per The Age today 1w
  •   _kezm They look scrumptious! 1w
  •   sadieandlance Disneyfication? Intriguing! I'm off to google to see if I can read this article. (Biccies look yum and if you make them any other time of the year, they're just Choc chip oat biccies, right?!) 1w
  •   katya_d @sadieandlance it's an interesting article, written by Jill Stark, title is The Disneyfication of the Diggers if that makes it easier to find. And yes to the other name for them:-) 1w
  •   katya_d @angiesfoodiary @_kezm Thanks - there has been a fair amount of taste testing going on 1w
  •   sarasrking As long as you don't sell them at inflated prices pretending to donate to the RSL or something #brandzacday 1w
  •   sadieandlance Interesting article. I don't think adding the Choc is disneyfication. Unless, like @sarasrking says, you're packaging them up and selling them . 1w
  •   sarasrking I made choc chip oat biscuits with malted milk powder yesterday and they are ACE. No Anzac Angst required xxx @sadieandlance @katya_d #anzackery 1w
